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.

Investing Gurus To Follow For The Next 30 Years
At GuruFocus we follow many of the top investment managers around the globe. I like to follow the investing gurus that are in control of a publicly traded company that I can buy. The gurus I follow include Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway, BRK.A), Carl Icahn (Icahn Enterprises, IEP) and Prem Watsa (Fairfax Financial, TSX:FFH, FRFHF). All of their stocks have performed well over the years. We can still make money with these gurus, but for how long? Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) is 83 years old and Carl Read more...
Prem Watsa Takes 3 New Small Holdings
Prem Watsa (Trades, Portfolio) is a cautious investor, whose vigilance has been heighted in recent years by what he perceives as a mix of factors indicating an economic storm up ahead. He has had extraordinary performance at his insurance conglomerate Fairfax Financial (TSX:FFH), compounding book value per share at 21.3% since inception. His return on his stock portfolio has lagged, however, as he hedges against potential future market instability. According to his 2013 annual letter, threats he sees to the market include: high U.S. total debt/GDP ratio with significant deleveraging remaining, weak economic growth in the Western world, inflation, QE’s lack of impact on the real economy, real estate bubble in China and low U.S. and junk bond yields.
