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 Toyota Motor Corp

Third Avenue Management Comments on Toyota - Jul 23, 2014

Perhaps because it has "Toyota" (TM) in its name or perhaps because it spun out Toyota Motor years ago, many people view Toyota industries as largely an automotive parts type company. it is, but also derives around 50% of operating income from its material handling equipment business, where it is the global market share leader. The company also has a logistics segment and a textiles machinery business. The company is profitable and growing and, furthermore, has an attractive investment securities portfolio, the value of which exceeds Toyota industries' current market value. The businesses are separable but not likely saleable (perhaps if it were not a Japanese company). Changes in corporate governance are afoot in Japan. The government is working on new corporate governance rules requiring independent directors, or in the absence of that, an explanation of deviations. Further, Japan is working on a Stewardship Code to encourage institutional investors to disclose their proxy votes and engage in dialogue with companies on issues that could impact long-term share value. a new stock index, the JPX- Nikkei 400, highlights this new focus. To be included in the index, companies must meet certain corporate governance and profitability requirements.

Most Widely Held Guru Stocks Trading In Asia
As pointed out by Warren Buffett, the percentage of total market cap relative to the U.S. GNP is “probably the best single measure of where valuations stand at any given moment.” GuruFocus has taken this comment a step farther and applied it to the global markets. Including the United States, 20 different global markets were analyzed. More information on the valuations can be found at the following link: Global Market Valuations. An interesting aspect of the global valuations is that the U.S. markets have the lowest projected annual returns over the next 8 years, with an implied annual return of 0.9 percent including dividends.
