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 Arch Capital Group Ltd

Ron Baron Comments on Arch Capital Group - Nov 02, 2018

Arch Capital Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:ACGL) is a specialty insurance company based in Bermuda. Shares appreciated after the company reported solid quarterly results that exceeded Street expectations. The stock also benefited from improving sentiment for mortgage insurers as investors became more confident that industry returns would remain attractive despite a recent price cut. We continue to own the stock due to Arch’s strong management team and underwriting discipline.

From Ron Baron (Trades, Portfolio)'s third-quarter Baron Partners Fund shareholder letter.

Ron Baron Comments on Arch Capital - Feb 05, 2018

Arch Capital’s (NASDAQ:ACGL) shares fell in the quarter due to unusual storm activity that, surprisingly, did not cause as large an increase in insurance rates as many expected. This is the result of substantial liquidity throughout America’s financial businesses. Arch’s recent acquisition of a leading mortgage insurer provides it with an attractive diversifier to its property and casualty businesses. We believe this acquisition could have added as much as 10% to this company’s asset value.

Baron Asset Fund Comments on Arch Capital Group Ltd. - Jan 30, 2017

Shares of Arch Capital Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:ACGL), the Bermuda-based specialty insurance and reinsurance company, gained on good financial results, which included profitable underwriting, modest catastrophe losses, and favorable reserve development. Arch Capital also benefited from increasing optimism toward its acquisition of United Guaranty from American International Group, Inc. The transaction makes Arch the largest provider of mortgage insurance, a market that we believe has attractive profitability and growth prospects. We continue to be impressed by the company’s strong management team and its consistent underwriting discipline.
