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 Mettler-Toledo International Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Mettler-Toledo International Inc. - Jan 26, 2016

Shares of Mettler-Toledo International, Inc. (NYSE:MTD), the leading provider of weighing instruments for laboratory, industrial and food retailing applications, rose after the company reported good results and offered an encouraging assessment of its near-term prospects. Although macroeconomic trends pressured Mettler’s Brazilian, Russian and Chinese divisions in the recent quarter, the rest of its business grew revenues a respectable 7%, and its earnings beat Wall Street estimates. Management also provided solid guidance for 2016 despite ongoing pressure in overseas’ markets. We think Mettler-Toledo’s diversified, stable business can continue generating solid growth despite isolated areas of geographic weakness.
