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.

John Rogers Comments on WMS Industries Inc. - May 09, 2013

In addition, leading gaming machine manufacturer WMS Industries Inc. (WMS), cashed in for a +41.09% gain as it agreed to a buyout. We purchased the stock in the last quarter of 2012 at around $16 per share; as part of our work, we calculated a strategic buyer would likely pay around $32 per share in an acquisition. At the time neither we nor anyone we know of anticipated an offer in the near-term; the calculation is a part of our discipline.

From John Rogers’ first quarter 2013 commentary.
