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.



From the Oakmark Select Fund first-quarter 2017 shareholder letter.
