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 Berkshire Hathaway Inc

Zeke Ashton Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Jan 06, 2017

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B) is of course managed by Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), who is justifiably recognized as one of the world’s most successful investors and the torch-bearer for the value investing style of capital allocation. Unlike many stocks in today’s expensive environment, Berkshire Hathaway remains very reasonably valued on historical measures relative to earnings and book value, and we believe the company’s immense balance sheet strength remains a rare competitive advantage.

In February 2013, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) and 3G Capital announced a deal to acquire the 144-year old H.J. Heinz Co. for $23 billion. The firm I worked for at the time held the stock, so I remember that period pretty well. All-in, I remember thinking it was a win-win for both parties: Berkshire and 3G acquired a high-quality business with category leading brands (most notably the eponymous ketchup brand), while Heinz shareholders were fairly compensated as well.
