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.

Guru Investment Theses on Symantec Corp

Third Avenue Management Comments on Symantec - Jul 23, 2014

Symantec (SYMC) operates in security software and IT storage management businesses with its well-known brands, such as Norton. Recently, it has experienced management turnover, with its second CEO terminated by the Board in as many years. The surprise announcement was due to what appears to be slower than expected execution of a previously announced new strategy. The company had already started to embark on its new strategy to improve growth capabilities, including restructuring the sales force and eliminating duplicative organizational and operating structures. While not central to our original investment thesis, we have long thought that the company's businesses seem separable and saleable. Strategic firms could be potentially interested in its various businesses, though it could also be interesting to private equity firms given the strong cash flow characteristics of the business.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Symantec Corp. - Oct 02, 2012

We initiated a position in the common stock of Symantec Corp. (SYMC), a leading provider of security, backup / recovery and storage management software. The company's products are sold to both consumers (through its Norton product line) and corporations. Symantec's end markets seem to be generally healthy and growing, and the software business is very attractive owing to recurring maintenance revenue, high margins (gross margins in excess of 80%) and robust cash flow generation. Symantec has a very strong financial position with $4.1 billion of cash and investments, compared to total debt of $3.0 billion. During the quarter, the company issued $1 billion of long-term debt at very attractive rates (2.75% and 3.9% for five and ten year maturities, respectively). Owing primarily to the weak near term outlook for enterprise IT spending, particularly in Europe, the Fund purchased shares of Symantec Common at only about five times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"). Transactions in the software industry typically occur at much higher multiples, including, most notably, Intel's purchase of Symantec's competitor, McAfee, in 2011 at about 15 times EBITDA. Subsequent to quarter end, Symantec's CEO was replaced by Chairman Stephen Bennett, who was formerly Intuit's CEO from 2003-2007. The move was in response to the weak stock performance of Symantec Common over the last couple of years and enhances the possibility of some type of resource conversion activity to increase shareholder value.
