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.

Business Description

Industry: Banks » Savings & Cooperative Banks
Compare:OCN, HOME, PBCT, HCBK, FNFG » details
Waterstone Financial, Inc., was formed in October 2005 as the mid-tier stockholding company subsidiary of Lamplighter Financial, MHC, as part of the reorganization of WaterStone Bank into mutual holding company form. The Company is a one-bank holding company with two operating segments - community banking and mortgage banking. The Bank is mainly engaged in the business of attracting deposits from the general public and using such deposits to originate real estate, business and consumer loans. The Bank provides a range of financial services to customers through branch locations in southeastern Wisconsin. The Bank owns a mortgage banking subsidiary that originates residential real estate loans held for sale at various branch offices across the country. It faces competition within its market area both in making real estate loans and attracting deposits. Its competition for loans and deposits comes principally from commercial banks, savings institutions, mortgage banking firms and credit unions. It faces additional competition for deposits from money market funds, brokerage firms, and mutual funds. Some of its competitors offer products and services that it does not offer, such as trust services, private banking and brokerage and insurance services. The Bank is subject to the regulations of certain federal and state agencies and undergoes periodic examinations by those regulatory authorities.
