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 organized in June 2013. The Company is a one-bank holding company with two operating segments community banking and mortgage banking. Community banking, which is conducted through WaterStone Bank, consists of lending and deposit taking (as well as other banking-related products and services) to consumers and businesses and the support to deliver, fund, and manage such banking services. Mortgage banking, which is conducted through Waterstone Mortgage Corporation, consists of originating residential mortgage loans for sale in the secondary market. 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 Company is subject to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission under the federal securities laws.
