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.

Stonemor Partners LP owns and operates the cemetery and funeral home business. The Company sells cemetery products and services both at the time of death, which it refers to as at-need and prior to the time of death, which it refers to as pre-need.

Stonemor Partners LP was formed as a Delaware limited partnership in April 2, 2004. The Company owns and operates the cemetery and funeral home business conducted by Cornerstone and its subsidiaries. On September 20, 2004, it completed its initial public offering. It operates 277 cemeteries in 27 states and Puerto Rico. It owns 259 of these cemeteries, and it operates the remaining 18 under management or operating agreements with the nonprofit cemetery corporations that own the cemeteries. The Company sells cemetery products and services both at the time of death, which it refers to as at-need and prior to the time of death, which it refers to as pre-need. Pre-need products and services are typically sold on an installment basis. The Company is organized into five distinct reportable segments which are classified as Cemetery Operations - Southeast, Cemetery Operations - Northeast, Cemetery Operations - West, Funeral Homes, and Corporate. The Cemetery Operations segments sells interment rights, caskets, burial vaults, cremation niches, markers and other cemetery related merchandise. Its Funeral Homes segment offers a range of funeral-related services such as family consultation, the removal of and preparation of remains and the use of funeral home facilities for visitation. Its Corporate segment includes various home office expenses, miscellaneous selling, cemetery and general administrative expenses that are not allocable to other operating segments, certain depreciation and amortization expenses and acquisition related costs. Its cemetery properties are located in Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia. The cemetery operations include sales of cemetery interment rights, merchandise and services and the performance of cemetery maintenance and other services. The cemetery products and services that the Company sells are burial lots, lawn crypts, mausoleum crypts, cremation niches, perpetual care rights, burial vaults, caskets, grave markers and grave marker bases, memorials, installation of burial vaults, installation of caskets, installation of other cemetery merchandise, and other service items. One of the principal services it provides at its cemeteries is an opening and closing, which is the digging and refilling of burial spaces to install the vault and place the casket into the vault. The Company competes with two publicly held death care companies that have U.S. operations; Service Corporation International, and Carriage Services, Inc. The Company's operations is subject to regulation, supervision and licensing under federal, state and local laws which impacts the goods and services that it may sell and the manner in which it may furnish goods and services.
