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.

Business Description

Compare:GDFZY, NWE, ENLAY, EONGY, ECIFY » details
Traded in other countries:SE4.Germany
Sempra Energy is an energy services holding company, which provides electric, natural gas and other energy products and services to its customers. It has five separately managed reportable segments consisting of San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGa), Sempra Commodities, Sempra Generation and Sempra Pipelines & Storage. Sempra Commodities, Sempra Generation, Sempra Pipelines & Storage, and an additional business unit, Sempra LNG (liquefied natural gas) are subsidiaries of Sempra Global. Sempra Global is a holding company for most of its subsidiaries that are not subject to California utility regulation. San Diego Gas & Electric provides electricity and natural gas to 3.4 million consumers across 4,000 square miles from Orange County to the Mexican border. Southern California Gas Co. operates as a natural gas distribution utility. SoCalGas serves more than 20 million consumers across 20,000 square miles throughout central and Southern California. Sempra Generation is working to provide clean power to North America. The company owns and operates four natural gas-fired power plants, which are among the cleanest and most advanced in the United States. These plants produce more than 2,600 megawatts of electricity. The Company also has a wind-power generation project in development in Baja California, Mexico. Sempra LNG is working to bring natural gas to North America to meet the growing demand. Natural gas is abundant in other parts of the world. That gas can be supercooled so it turns into a portable liquid, and then shipped to Sempra LNG's receipt terminals in North America. There the LNG is turned back into gas and Sempra Pipelines & Storage is working to move natural gas from where it's available to where it's needed. To do that, the company develops, builds and operates natural gas pipelines and natural gas storage facilities. Sempra Pipelines & Storage and its affiliates operate and/or own more than 1,400 miles of pipelines in northern Mexico and the United States, and are in the process of constructing additional pipelines. This includes a partnership on the Rockies Express Pipeline, which will stretch more than 1,600 miles from Colorado to Ohio when it is complete. The Sempra Utilities are regulated in California by the California Public Utilities Commission, the California Energy Commission, and the California Air Resources Board, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
