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

David Rolfe Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Oct 12, 2018

In Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B)’s most recently reported quarter, underwriting profitability inflected higher at the Company’s insurance subsidiaries, particularly at GEICO, as higher pricing and a dearth of mega-cats combined to drive substantially better year-over-year results. The Company also amended their share repurchase program and removed their buy-limit of 20% premium to book value, replacing it with what Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) (CEO) or Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) (Vice Chairman) deem to be cheap enough relative to intrinsic value. No doubt the 20% premium has been an important signpost for investors for the past several years.



However, management has long signaled that they are having a hard time finding attractive investment opportunities, also evidenced in their $100 billion war-chest in low-return cash balance. If and when the cost of capital rises, either from the reversal of global quantitative easing or higher volatility, we expect Berkshire to ease up on buybacks and deploy capital at very high rates of return. Until then, and after more than 9 years of U.S. equity appreciation, we think it is prudent for management to preserve and return cash via accretive share buybacks, rather than compete with undisciplined buyers flush with cheap and easy capital.



From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s Wedgewood Partners 3rd quarter 2018 shareholder commentary.

Aesop and Inefficient Bush Theory, Part 1 An excerpt from Warren Buffett’s annual shareholder letter from 2000
Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) is a man known for his dry wit and keen insights on value investing. One of the reasons why Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) annual shareholder letters are such interesting reading is that Buffett and Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) go out of their way to communicate not only the raw numbers of the past year’s financial performance, but also to enrich their shareholders’ understanding of how Berkshire’s management comes to the investment decisions that it does. This is an excerpt from Buffett’s annual letter from the year 2000, in which he invokes the wisdom of the ancient Greek storyteller Aesop.
