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 Primoris Services Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Primoris Services Corp - Feb 25, 2014

Primoris Services Corp. (PRIM), a leading specialty utility and industrial contractor, has substantial opportunities, in our view, for long-term growth. The stock was up 22.3% in the fourth quarter as management highlighted potential for multi-hundred million dollar wins on Gulf Coast industrial and water transportation work in West Texas. Both of these potential contracts would add to a strong multi-year backlog in large pipeline construction, pipeline integrity, and power plant construction.
