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.

Guru Investment Theses on Lowe's Companies Inc.

Lountzis Asset Management Comments on Lowe's - Mar 21, 2014

LOWE’S (LOW) is a leading home improvement retailer that generated revenues of over $53.4 billion in fiscal 2014 with net income of $2.3 billion. Diluted earnings per share should be $2.10 and we see that rising in 2015 to $2.60/share. The company continues to generate significant free cash flow exceeding $3 billion in 2013 providing for a solid dividend yield of just under 2% and continued share repurchases. While Home Depot continues to perform better than Lowe’s, as measured by same store sales, we believe that Lowe’s will continue to improve its merchandising operations and continue to buy back significant amounts of stock and improve its performance relative to Home Depot. Lowe’s stock price appreciated 40% in both 2012 and 2013 and we believe the stock price is nearing its intrinsic value. Lowe’s continues to aggressively repurchase stock and we anticipate that from the 1st quarter of 2011 with $1.3 billion fully diluted shares, that by 2016 the number of shares will be under 800 million resulting in a buyback of almost 40% of their shares outstanding.
