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.

Compare:TSCO, AMZN, EBAY, FIVE, AZO » details
Traded in other countries:WEW.Germany,
West Marine Inc was incorporated in Delaware in September 1993. The Company is a specialty retailer of boating supplies and accessories. Its segments are Stores; Port Supply, its wholesale segment; and Direct-to-Customer, which includes eCommerce, catalog and call center transactions. Since opening its first store in Palo Alto, California in 1975, the Company's stores segment has grown through internal expansion and through strategic acquisitions to 300 Company-operated locations open at the end of 2012. The standard-sized stores typically range from 6,000 to 12,000 square feet and carry over 9,000 items. Express stores typically range from 2,500 to 3,000 square feet and carry over 4,000 items, mainly hardware and other supplies needed for day-to-day boat maintenance and repairs. It also operates large format stores, standard-sized stores and smaller 'Express' stores. Port Supply was created to expand the company's market share across a broader customer base and to leverage its purchasing and distribution efficiencies. Port Supply customers include businesses involved in boat sales, boat building, boat commissioning and repair, yacht chartering, marina operations and other boating-related activities. In addition, Port Supply sells to government and industrial customers who use its products for boating and non-boating purposes. Its retail eCommerce website, direct mail catalogs, and virtual call center comprise the Direct-to-Customer segment. This channel complements the Stores segment by building brand awareness, acting as an additional marketing vehicle, and providing its customers with the option of shopping from around the globe, 24 hours a day. It operates two full service multi-channel distribution centers: a 472,000 square foot facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina and a 240,000 square foot facility in Hollister, California. Its stores compete with other specialty boating supply stores, and a variety of local and regional specialty stores, sporting goods stores and mass merchants. The Company is subject to various routine and non-routine reviews, audits and investigations by various federal and state governmental regulators, including customs, environmental and tax authorities in the jurisdictions.
