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 Mercury Systems Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Mercury Systems - Jan 20, 2017

Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) is a provider of complex electronic subsystems to major defense contractors. In March, Mercury made a significant acquisition of a defense unit that was part of Microsemi Corp. This unit added embedded protection capabilities that are like military hardware cybersecurity, as well as solid state storage capabilities for its systems (versus using hard disk drives). During the fourth quarter, shares performed well as Mercury continued to win contract awards. This was aided by the sentiment that a Republican administration will be more likely to increase defense spending. We agree with this theory, but believe that Mercury’s growth is likely to be driven as much, or more, by market share gains as more work is outsourced to it by major defense prime contractors.

Baron Funds Comments on Mercury Systems - Aug 10, 2016

Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) is a provider of complex electronic subsystems to major defense contractors. Its devices allow Mercury’s defense contractor customers to develop their products more quickly and at lower risk than if they did it completely on their own. Such systems collect, process, store, and send information from devices on planes and UAVs (such as radar and image sensors), provide missile defense for ships and ground based platforms, and are integrated into electronic warfare systems (such as jammers). In March, Mercury made a significant acquisition of a defense unit that was part of Microsemi Corp. This unit added “embedded protection” capabilities that are like military hardware cybersecurity, as well as solid state storage capabilities for its systems (versus using hard disk drives). As occurred in the first quarter, the market continued to reward Mercury for this highly strategic, accretive acquisition.

Baron Funds Comments on Mercury Systems Inc. - Feb 25, 2016

Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) is a provider of complex electronic subsystems to major defense contractors. Its devices allow Mercury’s defense contractor customers to develop their products more quickly and at lower risk. Such systems collect, process, store and send information from planes and unmanned aerial vehicles (such as radar and image sensors), provide missile defense for ships and ground based platforms, and are integrated into electronic warfare systems (such as jammers). We believe Mercury is uniquely positioned in its space due to its creation of industry standard open systems and middleware, and a manufacturing scale that few companies other than prime contractors can match. The company has an impressive multi-year backlog, has been steadily improving its operating margins, and has a solid balance sheet that should enable it to make accretive, strategic acquisitions. Shares were up in the quarter as investors grew comfortable that the U.S. defense budget has finally bottomed out, and Mercury reported solid earnings and backlog numbers. This led to a re-rating of the company’s multiple to match major prime contractors in the space. We believe that Mercury deserves a premium multiple as it has the potential to grow at more than double the rate of industry peers, has a large and visible backlog, and in our opinion is an attractive takeout target.
