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.

Baron Emerging Markets Fund Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Limited - Feb 16, 2017

Shares of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), the largest e-commerce company in China, fell in the fourth quarter as a result of weakness in the Chinese currency relative to the U.S. dollar and increased spending by the company on original video programming. We continue to believe that Alibaba represents a unique opportunity to invest in the dominant provider of e-commerce and cloud-related services in the growing Chinese market. (Ashim Mehra)

Baron Funds Comments on Alibaba Group Holding Limited - Oct 25, 2016

Shares of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), the largest e-commerce company in China, performed well in the third quarter following strong quarterly results. Alibaba’s core China retail commerce business grew revenues 49% – driven by the continued shift to mobile transactions and improvements in mobile monetization – and its cloud business (same as AWS) grew sales 156%. Enhanced financial disclosure helped investors to understand better the profitability of the core commerce business – which has over 60% operating margins – and thereby attribute a higher value to it. We expect that mobile monetization will continue to improve through 2016 and beyond, and that the company will continue to profit from investments in new areas such as online grocery and cloud computing.
