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.

Westport Fund Comments on Stone Energy Corp - Jul 28, 2014

The best performing industry sector for the Westport Fund in this period was Oil & Gas Producers, which included three exploration and production companies. This sector provided 261 basis points to the portfolio return compared to the 105 basis points from the Energy holdings in the Russell Midcap® Index. … Stone Energy Corp. (SGY) provided a return of slightly more than 35% for the first half and added 27 basis points to the Fund’s performance. Continued growth in the world economy has been supporting oil prices and a very cold winter in the U.S. provided the impetus for higher natural gas prices.
