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.

Alcoa Corp is an integrated aluminum company. The company engages in aluminum production from bauxite mining to manufactures finished aluminum goods. It serves finished aluminum goods to a wide-variety of industrial end markets.

Alcoa is a vertically integrated aluminum company involved in every phase of aluminum production, including bauxite mining, alumina refining, and the manufacture of primary aluminum. The firm is the world's largest bauxite miner and alumina refiner by production volume, and its profits are closely tied to prevailing commodity prices along the aluminum supply chain.

Guru Investment Theses on Alcoa Corp

Royce Funds Comments on Alcoa - Mar 15, 2016

RTI International Metals specializes in titanium and other metals and sells primarily to the aerospace industry. Its shares shot up quickly in March when Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced an agreement to buy the company. Better-than-expected revenues helped the stock price of RF and mixed-signal integrated circuit specialist MaxLinear to climb in 2015 while earnings strength drove the rising share price of NeoPhotonics Corporation, which makes hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for high-speed communications networks.





From the Royce Opportunity Fund fourth quarter 2015 commentary.

Steven Romick Comments on Alcoa - Feb 01, 2016

Weak aluminum prices and inventory adjustments in the aerospace supply chain negatively impacted Alcoa (NYSE:AA)’s profitability and its stock price in 2015. We support the company’s decision to separate its highly engineered, value-added aerospace business from its commodity aluminum operations. As the price has declined in the last year, we have doubled the number of shares we own and are hopeful that the pending spin-off will create clarity and value for the enterprise.
