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.

Meridian Funds Comments on Sally Beauty Holdings - Sep 08, 2014

Sally Beauty Holdings (SBH) distributes and retails beauty products. During the period, the stock declined due to the impact of weather and some overall weakness in consumer spending. We have been adding to the position as we believe the company is well positioned to grow domestically, expand internationally and continue buying back stock, which should drive strong earnings growth for the long term.
