Explanation

Cost of Goods Sold is directly linked to profitability of the company through Gross Margin.

Cyberonics Inc's Gross Margin for the three months ended in Sep. 2016 is calculated as:

 Gross Margin = 1 - COGS to Revenue = 1 - Cost of Goods Sold / Revenue = 1 - 106.454 / 295.268 = 63.95 %

* All numbers are in millions except for per share data and ratio. All numbers are in their local exchange's currency.

A company that has a moat can usually maintain or even expand their Gross Margin. A company can increase its Gross Margin in two ways. It can increase the prices of the goods it sells and keeps its Cost of Goods Sold unchanged. Or it can keep the sales price unchanged and squeeze its suppliers to reduce the Cost of Goods Sold. Warren Buffett believes businesses with the power to raise prices have moats.
