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

Guru Investment Theses on Ryanair Holdings PLC

Baron Funds Comments on Ryanair Holdings PLC - Nov 22, 2013

Ryanair Holdings plc 's (RYAAY) share price declined 3.5% in the third quarter. Ryanair is the lowest-cost short-haul airline in Europe. In early September the company cautioned that near-term demand is expected to be weaker than previously expected. This news put pressure on Ryanair's shares as well as those of other European airlines. The company's share price rever sed course quickly and r ecouped much of its lost ground by quarter end. We continue to believe that Ryanair will take market share from incumbent airlines that have higher airport and labor costs. (Aaron Wasserman)

Baron Funds Comments on Ryanair Holdings - Aug 24, 2012

From Baron Funds' second quarter commentary:

Ryanair Holdings plc (RYAAY) is an "ultra low cost" airline that flies 79 million passengers on 294 aircraft over 1,500 routes in Europe. Ryanair is Europe's largest airline with 11% market share, but its share is expanding as passengers continue to favor low-priced, no-frills travel. Ryanair is the most profitable airline in the world, generates the highest return on its invested capital, and has returned more cash to shareholders than any other airline. RYAAY operates the lowest per-passenger cost structure, by flying point-topoint service to non-congested airports, hiring non-union labor and outsourcing aircraft maintenance. Low costs and low fares stimulate demand on routes that become unprofitable for competitors, so Ryanair flies alone on over half its routes. Several competitors have consolidated or closed operations, a trend we think will continue, and we think Ryanair's incremental route gains should enhance profitability. We believe that Ryanair has an attractive, open-ended growth opportunity for the next several years. (Aaron Wasserman)

Ron Baron Comments on Ryanair
In the world of publicly-owned businesses, we try to invest with the same sort of individuals. In our opinion, Michael O'Leary, Ryanair's Chairman and CEO, is one such example of a talented, driven executive. Michael was born on a farm in Ireland, the second oldest of six siblings. Although his beginnings were not remarkable, Michael figured out how to get the best education he could by attending the best schools he could. After attending a Jesuit boarding school as a young boy, he graduated from Trinity College with an accounting degree; began his career working for KPMG, a large public accounting firm; and, soon afterwards, became a financial advisor to Tony Ryan, Ryanair's founder. In 1986, Michael was hired to work for Ryan and initially advised him to close the airline immediately since it was losing so much money! In 1989, when Ryanair (RYAAY) was on the brink of insolvency, Ryan offered Michael the job of Deputy CEO of the airline and in 1994 as its CEO. Michael accepted, on the condition that if he couldn't make it profitable, he would be allowed to shut it down! He also chose to work for a percentage of profits rather than for Read more...
