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 Cemex SAB de CV

Longleaf Partners Comments on CEMEX - Feb 15, 2016

Our position in the convertible bonds of CEMEX (NYSE:CX) declined 12% in the quarter and 21% since we bought the position in the third quarter. The price declined due to weak Latin American currencies, challenged trends in some emerging markets, and a general sell-off across the entire non-investment grade bond sector. We believe CEMEX’s assets are worth roughly twice the debt, which provides generous asset coverage. In addition, we receive a yield component and the opportunity of longer-term upside over par value through the convertible feature as EBITDA growth and debt reduction drive the underlying equity value higher.





From Longleaf Partners' International Fund commentary on the fourth quarter 2015.

Brandes Investment Trust Comments on Cemex - Feb 08, 2016

Holdings in Mexico hurt returns in the fourth quarter, notably cement company Cemex (NYSE:CX). With the majority of Cemex’s debt denominated in U.S. dollars, concerns about the impact of rising U.S. interest rates have added to investor worries over intensifying competition in the company’s home market. Although leverage remains a key concern for Cemex, it is not, in our opinion, as big of a risk as it was a few years ago. We have been encouraged by the initiatives the company’s management has taken in terming out debt maturities, locking in lower interest rates, successfully negotiating with key creditors, and minimizing shareholder dilution. Moreover, while rising U.S. rates may be a near-term concern, we view Cemex primarily as a U.S.-dollar denominated business and believe the company has the ability to preserve its long-term earnings power by potentially increasing its prices to offset the impact of any foreign-currency devaluations.
