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 PulteGroup Inc

John Keeley Comments on PulteGroup Inc. - Dec 11, 2012

PulteGroup Inc. (PHM) was a significant contributor over the past year and was easily the top performing security in the portfolio. The homebuilder climbed over 292 percent over the trailing twelve months and contributed 119 basis points to the portfolio over that time period. The company has been effective at controlling costs and strategically improving many of its existing communities. Despite a number of positive economic reports related to housing, it appears that the rally in the industry is getting very little respect. We continue to see sentiment indexes improving rapidly, tight supply which is creating an attractive supply-demand imbalance, and improvements in pricing. Although we anticipate some volatility during the housing recovery, with interest rates at record lows and the Federal Reserve directly supporting rates with their recent announcement, we continue to expect progress in this area and have positioned the portfolio accordingly with Pulte and a number of other positions with exposure to the housing industry.

From Keeley Funds’ 2012 annual report.
