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:

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

Guru Investment Theses on Texas Industries Inc

Mason Hawkins Comments on Texas Industries - Aug 13, 2013

The Fund's largest holding, Texas Industries (TXI), continued to add meaningfully to performance and is the largest contributor YTD with its 28% gain. The Dallas-based cement and aggregates company has had large volume growth and improved pricing in Texas, with demand exceeding capacity in some local markets. As we mentioned in the first quarter, the company is bringing additional capacity on line to capture the incremental demand and has additional upside potential when a recovery in California generates additional earnings.
