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 International Flavors & Fragrances Inc

Mario Gabelli Comments on International Flavors & Fragrances - Feb 05, 2016

International Flavors & Fragrances (1.3%) (IFF – $119.64 – NYSE) (NYSE:IFF), based in New York, is a leading global supplier of flavor and fragrances and ingredients used in food, beverage, and personal and household care products. It is the third largest manufacturer in the estimated $18 billion global industry, generating revenue and EBITDA of approximately $3 billion and $705 million, respectively. IFF should continue to benefit from the growth of packaged food and personal/household care products in emerging markets, which represent 50% of its revenue, as well as from new product innovation in developed markets. Over the next five years, we expect IFF to generate high single-digit earnings growth (assumes share repurchases). Acquisitions may further enhance this growth rate as the company looks to supplement its technology, geographic reach and/or expand into relevant adjacencies. IFF recently completed the acquisitions of Ottens Flavors, expanding its flavors business in the U.S., and Lucas Meyer Cosmetics, entering the active and functional cosmetic ingredients market.
