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

Baron Funds' Baron Fifth Avenue Growth Fund Comments on CME Group - Feb 13, 2017

CME Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CME), operates the world’s largest and most diversified financial exchanges for trading derivatives. Shares increased 14% in the December quarter due to greater post-election trading activity with average daily volumes up 24%. CME is also benefiting from investor expectations for a more normalized interest rate environment and greater hedging activity. We continue to own the stock because we expect solid earnings growth from higher trading and clearing volumes.
