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 The Priceline Group Inc

David Rolfe Comments on Priceline Group - Apr 14, 2017

Priceline Group (NASDAQ:PCLN) was a top contributor during the first quarter as they continue to execute their strategy of connecting the supply of heavily fragmented, independent hospitality providers—primarily in international markets—with demand from the Company's rapidly expanding user base. While we recognize that the online travel agency (OTA) market in the U.S. has matured, there remains a sizable addressable international market in which Priceline continues to aggressively reinvest, primarily, in organic growth opportunities. From a supply perspective, Priceline Group's Booking.com site has amassed listings on over 500,000 "alternative" properties—all of which are available for online booking-in addition to well over 600,000 conventional hospitality properties. We believe the value proposition of renting a private residence (i.e., alternative property) is still substantially different from traditional hospitality services, and represents an incremental revenue opportunity for Booking.com. Last, while the multiple on the stock has expanded over the past few quarters, we continue to view Priceline’s valuation as one of the more attractive multiples in our universe, relative to the Company’s exceptional growth, and cash-rich balance sheet.

Baron Asset Fund Comments on The Priceline Group - Apr 13, 2017

The Priceline Group, Inc. (PCLN) is a Consumer Discretionary company that operates online platforms connecting retailers in the travel space – hoteliers, airlines, rental cars, and restaurants – with consumers. Priceline is the global leader among online travel agencies, operating in more than 200 countries through six primary brands: Booking.com, priceline.com, agoda.com, KAYAK, Rentalcars.com, and OpenTable. The stock has increased more than nine-fold since our initial investment. We think Priceline has a continued long runway for growth, especially in emerging markets, where industry penetration levels are still much lower than in developed countries.

David Rolfe Comments on Priceline - Oct 21, 2016

Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN) was another top contributor to performance during the quarter. Despite its strong performance, in our view, Priceline’s stock has underperformed its corporate fundamentals. Over the past three years, earnings per share are up a cumulative +60%, while the P/E multiple has contracted about 15%, to around 19X the next 12-month earnings. Further, if we assume that all stocks receive some kind of multiple expansion benefits due to currently low interest rates, 3 then Priceline’s multiple contraction looks all the more stark. Thus, although Priceline has executed torrid value creation relative to the benchmark, the stock has posted a fraction of the outperformance. We continue to think Priceline’s competitive advantage consists of scale on both the supply and demand side of the hospitality industry. With over 90% of the Company’s profitability coming from non-US markets, particularly from Europe, we believe their strategy of foregoing low-margin US bookings in favor of bookings in higher-margin, fragmented markets is a sensible one.

The stock has more than doubled in the time we have owned it. We think Priceline has a long runway for growth, especially in emerging markets, where industry penetration levels are still much lower than in developed countries.

David Rolfe Comments on Priceline - Oct 15, 2015

During the quarter, Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN)’s prolific growth continued unabated as total bookings grew 26% year-over-year, on a constant currency basis. We continue to think Priceline is doing an excellent job getting returns on shareholder funds, reinvesting in travel service demand, particularly through its industry leading, $2.6 billion online marketing budget, which grew slightly less than bookings9. While Priceline’s business model revolves around connecting travel industry asset owners (e.g. hotels, rental cars, restaurants) with travelers, we think the Company’s competitive advantage comes from being a highly-efficient, and therefore low -cost provider focused on serving smaller, more fragmented asset owners that lack the scale and marketing reach of Priceline’s global, online properties. In spite of this, the vast majority of Priceline’s profits are generated outside of the US, so recent currency headwinds have had a significant, albeit purely translational, effect on the Company’s “headline” fundamental results. We do not have much of an edge in predicting currencies, however we believe the effects of these headwinds will annualize themselves out of results in the next few quarters, and investors will re-discover that Priceline’s core growth potential and competitive advantage remain intact. Adjusted for net cash on the Priceline balance sheet, we think the Company’s earnings multiple is at a reasonable, mid-to-high teens level, based on 2016 consensus estimates. We think it has been increasingly difficult to find investment opportunities that exhibit such high levels of profitable, organic growth while paying reasonable valuations, so we added to our Priceline weightings during the quarter.

From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s Wedgewood Partners third quarter 2015 letter.

Wedgewood Partners - Humility and Rationality in Practice Why I admire Dave Rolfe and the Wedgewood Partner team
One of my favorite gurus is Dave Rolfe, who built Wedgewood Partners from a small shop to a multi-billion-dollar reputable fund. I think Wedgewood is unique in many ways such as being a truly focused high-quality money manager and being impressively adaptive with the investment in technology companies such as Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN) way ahead of other value investors. But the thing that I admire most about Dave is his humility and rationality. Read more...
