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.

David Herro Comments on Glencore Guru stock highlight
Glencore (LSE:GLEN), one of the world’s largest mining companies and commodities traders, was the top contributor to performance again this quarter, returning 14%. Glencore reported full-year 2016 operating profit of $10.3 billion, which exceeded our estimates by approximately 5%. Improved profitability was driven by solid performance in both the Industrial and Marketing segments. In January, we met with CEO Ivan Glasenberg, who remains optimistic about copper prices given steady demand and deteriorating supply. In addition, Glencore officially completed its debt reduction plan in 2016, and its net debt declined by $14.1 billion over the last 18 months—a remarkable achievement that reflects management’s decisive action. As the company’s balance sheet health has improved, so has its generation of free cash flow, which will largely be returned to shareholders. Management plans to return at least $1 billion to shareholders in 2017 via dividends. We believe management is working to enhance shareholder value, and our investment thesis remains intact.

David Herro Comments on Glencore Guru stock highlight
Glencore (LSE:GLEN), one of the world’s largest mining companies and commodities traders, was the top contributor to performance for the fiscal period and the most recent quarter. Last year, concerns about weaker-than-expected demand for copper and other industrial metals in China drove down the price of the commodity and, along with it, Glencore’s share price. Investors also doubted the company’s ability to service its debt. However, we believed that the market was overreacting, and we used the opportunity to buy shares at what we found to be attractive prices. In the interim, Glencore’s management responded to the weakening share price by announcing an aggressive plan to reduce debt and capital expenditures as well as to sell non-core assets. In 2016, investors have reacted positively to the company’s progress in deleveraging its balance sheet and the sale of its non-core assets, as well as to price increases in three of Glencore’s four core commodities: zinc, coal and nickel. Our investment thesis for this company is intact, as we believe Glencore’s Read more...
