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 The Priceline Group Inc

David Rolfe Comments on Priceline - Oct 21, 2016

Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN) was another top contributor to performance during the quarter. Despite its strong performance, in our view, Priceline’s stock has underperformed its corporate fundamentals. Over the past three years, earnings per share are up a cumulative +60%, while the P/E multiple has contracted about 15%, to around 19X the next 12-month earnings. Further, if we assume that all stocks receive some kind of multiple expansion benefits due to currently low interest rates, 3 then Priceline’s multiple contraction looks all the more stark. Thus, although Priceline has executed torrid value creation relative to the benchmark, the stock has posted a fraction of the outperformance. We continue to think Priceline’s competitive advantage consists of scale on both the supply and demand side of the hospitality industry. With over 90% of the Company’s profitability coming from non-US markets, particularly from Europe, we believe their strategy of foregoing low-margin US bookings in favor of bookings in higher-margin, fragmented markets is a sensible one.

Baron Funds Comments on The Priceline Group - Jul 13, 2016

The Priceline Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCLN) is a Consumer Discretionary company that provides online platforms connecting retailers in the travel space – hoteliers, airlines, rental cars, restaurants – with consumers. Priceline first became known for its “Name Your Own Price” system, where travelers would name their price for airline tickets and other travel services. The company has since grown to become the global leader among online travel agencies, operating in more than 200 countries through six primary brands: Booking.com, priceline.com, agoda.com, KAYAK, Rentalcars.com, and OpenTable. The stock has more than doubled in the time we have owned it. We think Priceline has a long runway for growth, especially in emerging markets, where industry penetration levels are still much lower than in developed countries.

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.
