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.

EXCO Resources, a Texas corporation was incorporated in October 1955. It is an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the exploration, exploitation, development and production of onshore North American oil and natural gas properties with a focus on shale resource plays. The Company's principal operations are conducted in key North American oil and natural gas areas including East Texas, North Louisiana, Appalachia and the Permian Basin in West Texas. In addition to its oil and natural gas producing operations, it owns 50% interest in two midstream joint ventures located in East Texas/North Louisiana and Appalachia. Its primary strategy is to appraise, develop and exploit its Haynesville, Bossier and Marcellus shale resources, primarily through horizontal drilling, and to leverage its complementary midstream gathering systems and treating facilities to promptly transport its production to multiple market outlets. Its development and exploitation project areas includes East Texas and North Louisiana, Haynesville shale, DeSoto Parish, Shelby Area, Cotton Valley, Hosston, Travis Peak, Pettet, Appalachia, Marcellus shale, Permian and Sugg Ranch Field. Its production operations are subject to a number of regulations at the federal, state and local levels. These regulations require, among other things, permits for the drilling of wells, drilling bonds and reports concerning operations.
