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 Priceline Group Inc

David Rolfe Comments on Priceline - Oct 15, 2015

During the quarter, Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN)’s prolific growth continued unabated as total bookings grew 26% year-over-year, on a constant currency basis. We continue to think Priceline is doing an excellent job getting returns on shareholder funds, reinvesting in travel service demand, particularly through its industry leading, $2.6 billion online marketing budget, which grew slightly less than bookings9. While Priceline’s business model revolves around connecting travel industry asset owners (e.g. hotels, rental cars, restaurants) with travelers, we think the Company’s competitive advantage comes from being a highly-efficient, and therefore low -cost provider focused on serving smaller, more fragmented asset owners that lack the scale and marketing reach of Priceline’s global, online properties. In spite of this, the vast majority of Priceline’s profits are generated outside of the US, so recent currency headwinds have had a significant, albeit purely translational, effect on the Company’s “headline” fundamental results. We do not have much of an edge in predicting currencies, however we believe the effects of these headwinds will annualize themselves out of results in the next few quarters, and investors will re-discover that Priceline’s core growth potential and competitive advantage remain intact. Adjusted for net cash on the Priceline balance sheet, we think the Company’s earnings multiple is at a reasonable, mid-to-high teens level, based on 2016 consensus estimates. We think it has been increasingly difficult to find investment opportunities that exhibit such high levels of profitable, organic growth while paying reasonable valuations, so we added to our Priceline weightings during the quarter.

From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s Wedgewood Partners third quarter 2015 letter.

Priceline Group Inc was formed as a Delaware limited liability company in 1997 and was converted into a Delaware corporation in July 1998. On April 1, 2014, the Company changed its name from priceline.com Incorporated to The Priceline Group Inc. The Company is a provider of online travel and travel related reservation and search services. The Company offer consumers accommodation reservations (including hotels, bed and breakfasts, hostels, apartments, vacation rentals and other properties) through its Booking.com, priceline.com and agoda.com brands. The priceline.com brand also offers consumers reservations for rental cars, airline tickets, vacation packages and cruises. It offers rental car reservations through rentalcars.com. It also allows consumers to easily compare airline ticket, hotel reservation and rental car reservation information from hundreds of travel websites at once through KAYAK. The Company recently acquired OpenTable, a provider of online restaurant reservations. It believes that the online restaurant reservation business is complementary to its online travel businesses, and that both OpenTable and its travel businesses will benefit from adding OpenTable to The Priceline Group.
