GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Pitney Bowes Inc

David Einhorn Comments on Pitney Bowes - Jan 23, 2013

Our three year old thesis that Pitney Bowes (PBI) was a “melting ice cube” due to secular declining U.S. mail volumes played out. The company has been in a perpetual restructuringmode and reported a series of disappointing quarters. In addition, the viability of the dividendcame into question. We covered the short position with a nice gain.

From David Einhorn's fourth quarter letter.
