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.

What Can We Do Now? Part II A list of ways to help us remain calm
About four months ago, I wrote an article titled “What Can We Do Now?” Since then the market continued to rise undisrupted until this week. This headline from CNBC summarized what happened – “Dow Plummets 666 points, capping worst week in two years.” I was just on CNBC’s mobile website and the first 10 headlines are all about the Friday sell-off. The CBOE Volatility Index shot up 28.5% in one day. There’s little doubt that there’s wide spread mini panic in the market. The question of “what can we do now?” is again on investors’ mind. But this time the seeking of an answer seems much more urgent and important than when I wrote the article in September last year. Read more...
