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 General Dynamics Corp

Bernard Horn Comments on General Dynamics - Apr 16, 2018

In industrials, General Dynamics’ (NYSE:GD) earnings call highlighted backlog in its defense business and strong order intake from Gulfstream. These were critical metrics showing accelerated industry demand after nearly two years of stagnant sales/orders. During the quarter, GD announced the acquisition of IT contractor CSRA for $9.7 billion. According to big data analytics firm Govini, the post-merger combination of GD and CSRA will supplant market leader Leidos as the U.S. government’s largest IT provider.
