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.

Traded in other countries:SEQ.Germany
Stone Energy Corporation was incorporated in 1993 as a Delaware corporation. The Company is an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, exploitation, development and operation of oil and gas properties. The Company operates in the Gulf Coast Basin since its incorporation in 1993 and has established a technical and operational expertise in this area. The Company has expanded its reserve base outside of the conventional shelf of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) and into the more prolific reserve basins of the GOM deep water and Gulf Coast deep gas as well as onshore oil and gas shale opportunities, including the Marcellus Shale in Appalachia. Its current estimated proved oil and natural gas reserves are approximately 602 Bcfe. The Company's conventional shelf strategy is to apply the latest geophysical interpretation tools to identify underdeveloped properties and the latest production techniques to increase production attributable to these properties. Prior to acquiring a property, it performs a thorough geological, geophysical and engineering analysis of the property to formulate a comprehensive development plan. The Company's acquisition of the Pompano deep water field added approximately 102 Bcfe of estimated proved oil and natural gas reserves. The Company's property base in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) also contains multiple deep shelf exploration opportunities, which are defined as prospects below 15,000 feet. The Company's oil and gas operations are subject to various U.S. federal, state and local laws and regulations.
