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 TransDigm Group Inc

Baron Funds Comments on TransDigm Group - May 05, 2014

TransDigm Group, Inc. (TDG), a commercial aircraft manufacturer focusing on the aftermarket, gained 15% in the quarter. Commercial airlines are much more healthy and are spending more to maintain their fleets. Transdigm reported terrific results, featuring 9% organic revenue growth and 23% total growth. They announced another interesting acquisition during the quarter. We expect continued solid organic growth and accretive acquisitions and/or shareholder-friendly return of capital.

Baron Funds Comments on TransDigm Group - Aug 23, 2012

From Baron Funds' second quarter commentary:

TransDigm Group, Inc. (TDG), the maker of parts for commercial and military aircraft focused on the aftermarket, rose 16.0% in the quarter. The company reported stellar results highlighted by 15% organic growth.The company is digesting recent acquisitions,which along with the strength in the OEM markets are slightly depressing margins, yet deal integration and business trends are on track. TransDigm now trades at a full multiple of 12 times cash flow, but we believe cash flow will continue to grow double-digits and free cash flow will reduce debt or fund additional accretive acquisitions, so we still like the stock very much.
