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.

Cemex SAB de CV was founded in 1906. The Company is engaged in the production, marketing, distribution and sale of cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates and other construction materials. Cement is a binding agent, which, when mixed with sand, stone or other aggregates and water, produces either ready-mix concrete or mortar. It manufactures cement through a closely controlled chemical process, which begins with the mining and crushing of limestone and clay, and, in some instances, other raw materials. The clay and limestone are then pre-homogenized, a process which consists of combining different types of clay and limestone. It owns the registered trademarks for its brands in Mexico, such as 'Tolteca,' 'Monterrey,' 'Maya,' 'Anahuac,' 'Campana,' 'Gallo,' and 'Centenario.' The Company's competitors includes Lafarge Tarmac, Heidelberg, Aggregate Industries ,Hope Construction Materials , Dyckerhoff, Holcim, Schwenk Lafarge, Italcementi and Vicat. The Company's operations are subject to laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment in the various jurisdictions in which it operates, such as regulations regarding the release of cement dust into the air or emissions of greenhouse gases.
