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 Donnelley Financial Solutions Inc

Wally Weitz Comments on Donnelley Financial Solutions - May 18, 2017

Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE:DFIN) is a financial compliance company recently spun out of RR Donnelley. Primarily a printing company, RR Donnelley split itself into three public companies to ascribe better value to its individual parts, as the printing industry is facing secular decline. While 40% of Donnelley Financial’s revenue is still print related, the remainder is software and services, which not only have better margins than print but are also growing organically. We believe the market has misvalued Donnelley Financial due to lack of transparency around the cost structure and the compliance services segment’s sensitivity to capital markets transactions. Generally, when a company is spun-off, there is inevitable noise in its income statement as it seeks to recreate the services that its parent previously provided. The result is a host of duplicative costs, which can temporarily mask earnings power. More recently, Donnelley Financial’s quarterly results and guidance disappointed investors, as capital market activity was down 15% affecting an otherwise high margin segment. While the recent results are disappointing, we believe a recovery in the capital market is forthcoming and will allow Donnelley Financial to demonstrate more normalized earnings power, aggressively pay down debt, and continue to invest in compliance technology solutions, which are in high demand.
