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.

ServiceNow Inc provides cloud-based solutions that define, structure, manage, and automate services for enterprise operations in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Asia Pacific, and other countries.

ServiceNow is a software-as-a-service company that develops ITSM software for enterprise-level customers large and small. The firm's service management solutions also reach other areas of the enterprise, including HR, finance, legal and marketing. ServiceNow is also attempting to expand beyond the service management market and into IT operations management, or ITOM, with solutions for cloud provisioning, configuration automation, and event management, among others.

Guru Investment Theses on ServiceNow Inc

Baron Funds Comments on ServiceNow Inc. - May 06, 2016

ServiceNow, Inc. (NYSE:NOW) is a cloud based platform that allows customers to streamline workloads within different verticals of the organization. Originally, the company offered solutions that streamline workflows within the IT Service Management (ITSM), but continuously expanded its offering to other verticals like IT Operation Management (ITOM), Customer Service, Security, HR, Financials and Platform As A Service (PaaS). During 2015, the company was going through internal and external reorganization processes that impacted the internal sales organization and shifted a portion of NOW’s business towards its partners. Though these changes in the company are expected, as the company grows beyond $1 billion in sales, it had a negative impact on billings growth. We believed that the market misunderstood the billings update, its limited long-term impact and added to our position. After better than expected Q1, the stock reacted positively, and we expect a strong year as the sales organization stabilizes. We believe the company is taking the right steps to allow itself to continue its longterm growth towards management’s $4 billion revenue goal, as it expands beyond its original ITSM market and invests in its ecosystem of system integrators, distributors and developers.



From Baron Opportunity Fund first quarter 2016 commentary.
