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 Toro Co

Bill Frels Comments on Toro Co - Jul 31, 2014

A number of other industrial companies in our portfolio detracted from performance, including Toro Company (TTC), a major provider of landscape maintenance equipment. Due, in part, to last winter’s unseasonably cold weather, the firm lowered earnings expectations. Prior to the disappointing earnings report, we had scaled back our position somewhat, while retaining the firm as a top 10 holding based on our conviction that Toro’s strong product lineup is likely to deliver revenue growth later in the year.
