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.

Urban Outfitters: The Expectations Are Low
Urban Outfitters (URBN) might consider changing its name to Anthropologie. I was surprised that sometimes small changes like changing the corporation's name to the most profitable of its brands can help to improve the perception of a company. A good example is Fifth & Pacific, which changed its name to Kate Spade (KATE). In fact, as my pendulum analysis implies, as the pendulum swings too far to the pessimistic side, there is a good chance that patient investors can gain a good return when the pendulum swings back to the optimistic side. After today's decline, I believe that too much bad news have been reflected in the current share price. In the bullish scenario, URBN can return back to $48, implying more than 50% upside potential.
