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 Moody's Corporation

Bill Nygren Comments on Moody’s - Apr 10, 2017

Moody’s (NYSE:MCO) provides essential information to the world’s capital markets. We have a long history with Moody’s, dating back to the 1990s when it was a part of Dun & Bradstreet. The stock briefly traded for less than 17x 2018 earnings estimates because investors feared that rising interest rates and changing tax policies would depress debt issuance. Although such events would likely result in slower growth in the short term, we believe the company’s long-term prospects remain compelling. Bonds issued with a Moody’s rating pay meaningfully lower interest rates than those without a Moody’s rating, and the price paid to Moody’s is much lower than the interest savings the issuer realizes. We believe this will create consistent demand for bond ratings as debt markets grow. Management is cognizant of the value that the Moody’s rating provides, and they are able to steadily raise prices year after year. In our view, Moody’s is a great business with growing profits, run by a management team we’ve known and respected for years, and the shares trade at a price that is well below our estimate of intrinsic value.

**Complete details on franchise employment can be found here. Payrolls for businesses with 49 or fewer employees increased by 34,000 jobs in September, down from 68,000 in August. Employment at companies with 50-499 employees increased by 56,000 jobs, up from last month's 40,000. Employment at large companies -- those with 500 or more employees -- increased by 64,000, down from 67,000 in the prior month. Companies with 500-999 employees added 8,000 and companies with more than 1,000 employees added 56,000 in September. Goods-producing employment was up by 3,000 jobs in September, following August losses of 9,000. The construction industry added 11,000 jobs, following August losses of 2,000 jobs. Meanwhile, manufacturing jobs were down 6,000 in September, after losing 4,000 in the previous month. Service-providing employment rose by 151,000 jobs in September. The ADP National Employment Report indicates that professional/business services contributed 45,000 jobs, down from 53,000 in August. Trade/transportation/utilities increased by 15,000 jobs in September, down from 26,000 jobs added the previous month. Financial activities added 11,000 jobs, down from last month's gain of 15,000 jobs. "Job gains in September eased a bit when compared to the past 12-month average," said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and head of the ADP Research Institute. "We also observed softening this month in trade/transportation/utilities, possibly due to a continued tightening U.S. labor market and lackluster consumer spending." Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, said, "The current record of consecutive monthly job gains continued in September. With job openings at all-time highs and layoffs near all-time lows, the job market remains in full-swing. Job growth has moderated in recent months, but only because the economy is finally returning to full-employment."

The ADP National Employment Report® is a monthly measure of the change in total U.S. nonfarm private employment derived from actual, anonymous payroll data of client companies served by ADP®, a leading provider of human capital management solutions. The report, which measures nearly 24 million U.S. workers, is produced by the ADP Research Institute®, a specialized group within the company that provides insights around employment trends and workforce strategy, in collaboration with Moody's Analytics, Inc. Each month, ADP issues the ADP National Employment Report as part of the company's commitment to adding deeper insights into the U.S. labor market and providing businesses, governments and others with a source of credible and valuable information. The ADP National Employment Report is broadly distributed to the public each month, free of charge. The data for this report is collected for pay periods that can be interpolated to include the week of the 12th of each month, and processed with statistical methodologies similar to those used by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to compute employment from its monthly survey of establishments. Due to this processing, this subset is modified to make it indicative of national employment levels; therefore, the resulting employment changes computed for the ADP National Employment Report are not representative of changes in ADP's total base of U.S. business clients. For a description of the underlying data and the statistical model used to create this report, please see the ADP National Employment Report: Development Methodology. About Moody's Analytics
