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 First Republic Bank

Baron Funds' Fifth Avenue Growth Fund Comments on First Republic Bank - Feb 13, 2017

We added to our position in First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC) because our confidence in the company’s uniqueness, business model, and management continues to grow. The election results clearly suggest potential for higher interest rates, faster economic growth, lower corporate tax rates, and a more benign regulatory environment. We first purchased First Republic Bank earlier in the year because we believed it was a highly differentiated bank with a long runway for growth. First Republic Bank employs a unique, high-touch business model to serve wealthy customers in fast-growing, coastal markets of the U.S. A singular focus on client service leads to high customer retention and word-of-mouth referrals. Despite growing much faster than the overall banking industry, First Republic Bank is a disciplined underwriter with much lower credit losses than peers. We believe First Republic Bank can continue growing profitably for many years given its strong reputation and low penetration in large markets.

Baron Asset Fund Comments on First Republic Bank - Jan 30, 2017

First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC) provides banking and wealth management services to affluent clients in select metropolitan areas of the U.S. Its shares rose, as it participated in the post-election rally for financial stocks. We think the bank’s earnings should benefit from the expected increase in economic growth, along with higher interest rates and inflation. In addition, First Republic reported good financial results during the quarter, with 18% loan growth and 24% deposit growth. We believe the bank has a long runway for growth, as it expands its differentiated business model into additional geographies.
