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 Anixter International Inc

John Rogers Comments on Anixter Intl - Jan 18, 2018

Alternatively, our limited exposure within the technology and energy sectors was a headwind. Within technology, weakness at distributor of enterprise electrical products, Anixter Intl, Inc. (NYSE:AXE) impacted performance. Shares fell -10.59% due to concerns regarding the expanding industrial distribution offerings at Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). Despite the market’s recent focus, Amazon Business has been growing steadily since 2012. Most of the revenues for Anixter originate from projects. While price competition shrinks margins, the services performed are far from expendable, creating a layer of costs and expertise that Amazon would find difficult to replicate or improve upon. The projects themselves reach the distributors through powerful independent representatives, which creates more barriers to entry. In sum, we believe the Amazon announcement does not represent a substantive change in its narrative or Anixter’s business, but rather an increase in market attention given to these topics. We also think Anixter is poised to deliver strong earnings in 2018, as the company is likely to be a prime beneficiary of structural tax reform.

From John Rogers (Trades, Portfolio)' Ariel Funds 2017 shareholder letter.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Anixter - Mar 29, 2016

Anixter (NYSE:AXE) is a value-added distributor of data cables, security products, as well as low-voltage and high voltage electrical wires. It sells some 500,000 different SKUs sourced from thousands of manufacturers. Manufacturers rely on Anixter to reach target customers and the customers depend on Anixter to evaluate and test appropriate products for their particular needs. In a very general sense, Anixter’s business model is similar to that of a broker, earning a relatively stable gross margin, without assuming inventory or obsolescence risks. Since most product costs are passed through, gross profit serves as a revenue base to cover the operational expenses such as the company’s 230 warehouses and some 3,000 person salesforce.



Over the last few months, investors sold off AXE shares due to weaker economic conditions. Spending on nonresidential construction, oil and gas, and general capital expenditures all have slowed down. The stronger US dollar also weakens foreign sales as well as causing negative financial translation. We see these pressures as transitory and likely abating over 2016. Moreover, we see a long-term visible path to cost reduction and deleveraging spurred by acquisition integration and internal cost controls, which should leverage the benefit of recovering revenue growth.





From the Third Avenue Value Fund 1st quarter 2016 letter.
