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.

Its Sources of energy are sources of energy are electricity, diesel fuel, natural gas and coal. The Company operates four segments, Aggregates, Concrete, Asphalt Mix and Cement which are organized around its principal product lines. The asphalt mix and concrete facilities are able to meet their needs for raw material inputs with a combination of internally sourced and purchased raw materials. Its Cement segment operates a limestone quarry in Newberry, Florida which provides its cement production facility with feedstock materials and a quarry at Brooksville, Florida which provides feedstock for the ground calcium operation. The Newberry limestone quarry is mined primarily as feedstock for its wholly-owned cement production facility. The process of making cement requires raw materials including high purity limestone to achieve the chemical reactions that generate the final product. The Brooksville limestone quarry is mined and processed primarily as a supplement for end-use products such as animal feed, plastics and paint. The Concrete segment produces and sells ready-mixed concrete in California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Texas, Virginia and the District of Columbia and the Bahamas. Additionally, it produces and sells, other concrete products such as block. It also resells purchased building materials for use with ready-mixed concrete and concrete block.
