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.

WageWorks Inc was founded in 2000 and it was incorporated in state of Delaware. The company provides tax-advantaged programs for consumer-directed health, commuter and other employee spending account benefits, or CDBs, in the United States. It administers and operates a broad array of CDBs, including spending account management programs such as health and dependent care Flexible Spending Accounts, or FSAs, Health Savings Accounts, or HSAs, Health Reimbursement Arrangements, or HRAs, and commuter benefits, such as transit and parking programs. The company deliver its CDB programs through a highly scalable Benefits-as-a-Service, or BaaS, delivery model that employer clients and their employee participants may access through a standard web browser on any internet-enabled device including computers, smart phones and other mobile devices, such as tablet computers. Its on-demand delivery model eliminates the need for employer clients to install and maintain hardware and software in order to support CDB programs and enables to rapidly implement product enhancements across entire user base. Under HRA programs, employer clients provide their employee participants with a specified amount of available reimbursement funds to help their employee participants defray out-of-pocket medical expenses such as deductibles, co-insurance and co-payments. All amounts paid by the employer into HRAs are deductible by the employer as an ordinary business expense and are tax-free to the employee. The company offers Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, or COBRA, continuation services to employer clients to meet the employer's obligation to make available continuation of coverage for participants who are no longer eligible for the employer's COBRA covered benefits which includes medical, dental, vision, HRAs and certain healthcare FSAs. COBRA requires employers to make health coverage available for terminated employees for a period of up to 36 months post-termination. It markets and sells CDB programs through multiple channels, including direct sales to large enterprises, direct sales and through brokers to SMBs, and direct sales to industry purchasing and affiliate groups. The company generates revenue from three major sources: healthcare solutions, commuter solutions and other services. Healthcare and commuter programs include revenues generated from benefit service fees based on employee participant levels, interchange and other commission fees. Most of its employee participants utilize prepaid debit cards to pay for their qualified healthcare and commuter expenses and it receive fees, known as interchange, that represent a percentage of the expenses transacted on each card. The company also earns revenue from the sale of transit passes at full price to employee participants that it purchases from various transit agencies at a discount based on its volume of sales of their products. The company is subject to applicable Internal Revenue Service
