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 Trimble Inc

Jerome Dodson Comments on Trimble - Jan 25, 2017

Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) makes GPS positioning and precision-measurement products that increase the efficiency of construction workers, farmers and truck drivers. The stock soared 40.6%, from $21.45 to $30.15, increasing the Fund’s return by 107 basis points, as Trimble returned to earnings growth despite a downturn in all three of its end markets. A number of new products and the increasing adoption of the company’s software programs boosted revenue, while a renewed focus on cost management expanded margins.
