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.

Encore Wire Corporation is a Delaware corporation, incorporated in 1989. The Company is a manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable. It's a supplier of building wire for interior electrical wiring in commercial and industrial buildings, homes, apartments, and manufactured housing. The Company sells its products mainly through independent manufacturers' representatives located throughout the United States and, to a lesser extent, through its own direct in-house marketing efforts. The company offers an electric building wire product line that consists mainly of NM-B cable, UF-B cable, THWN-2 and other types of wire products, including armored cable. The company's NM-B, UF-B, THWN-2 and armored cable are all manufactured with copper as the conductor. Encore also purchases small quantities of other types of wire to re-sell to the customers that buy the products it manufactures. The main bases for differentiation among SKUs are product diameter, insulation, color and packaging. NM-B Cable, a non-metallic sheathed cable, is used mainly as interior wiring in homes, apartments and manufactured housing. NM-B cable is composed of either two or three insulated copper wire conductors, with or without a non-insulated ground wire, all sheathed in a polyvinyl chloride jacket. UF-B Cable, an underground feeder cable, is used to conduct power underground to outside lighting and other applications remote from buildings. UF-B cable is composed of two or three PVC insulated copper wire conductors, with or without an un-insulated ground wire, all jacketed in PVC. THWN-2 cable is used mainly as feeder, circuit and branch wiring in commercial and industrial buildings. It is composed of a single conductor, either stranded or solid, and insulated with PVC, which is further coated with nylon. Users typically pull THWN-2 cable through protective pipe or conduit. Armored cable is used mainly as feeder, circuit and branch wiring, mainly in commercial and industrial buildings. It is composed of multiple conductors, either stranded or solid, and insulated with PVC, which are further coated with nylon and then fully encased in a flexible aluminum or steel 'armored' protective sheath that eliminates the need to pull the wire through pipe or conduit. The manufacturing process for the company's various products involves multiple steps, including: casting, drawing, stranding, compounding, insulating, jacketing and armoring. Encore manufactures and tests all of its products in accordance with the standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., a nationally recognized testing and standards agency. Encore's machine operators and quality control inspectors conduct frequent product tests. At three separate manufacturing stages, the company sparks tests insulated wire for defects. The company sells its wire mainly to wholesale electrical distributors throughout the United States and, to a lesser extent, to retail home improvement centers. Most distributors
