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.

Meridian Funds Comments on Wolverine World Wide - Sep 08, 2014

Wolverine World Wide (WWW) manufactures and markets branded footwear globally. The stock declined during the quarter as investors wait for a turnaround in one of their key brands, Sperry. We continue to be attracted to the company’s strong portfolio of brands, the long- term international growth opportunity and the strong management team. We trimmed the stock during the quarter; however, we still maintain a large position in the stock.
