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•

Guru Investment Theses on Kraton Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Kraton Corp - Mar 16, 2017

Shares of specialty chemical company Kraton Corporation (NYSE:KRA) decreased in the fourth quarter as management reduced fiscal year guidance again. We believe the reduction was due to exogenous, temporary factors, leaving our long-term thesis intact. We think the company is on track to execute its plan to grow earnings through cost savings, acquisition synergies, and organic growth, while generating significant free cash to delever the balance sheet, accruing value to equity holders.



From Baron Energy and Resources Fund fourth quarter 2016 commentary.
