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 Keysight Technologies Inc

John Rogers Comments on Keysight Technologies - Apr 19, 2018

Another top contributor within producer durables was innovative test and measurement business, Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:KEYS), which advanced +25.94% after delivering better than expected revenue and earnings. The beat was driven by strong order growth across its end-markets, including 5G, automotive and energy, semiconductors, aerospace and defense; a faster than anticipated production recovery following the Northern California wildfires. KEYS also announced a $350M share repurchase authorization in the quarter.
