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 NRG Energy Inc

Keeley Funds Comments on NRG Energy - Oct 30, 2017

NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG) is an independent producer of electricity with a portfolio of 44 Gigawatts (GW) of conventional generation and 4.8GW of renewable assets, wholly-owned and through its controlling ownership in NRG Yield (NYLD). As is the case with restructuring stories, NRG’s stock performance has been lumpy, yet overall very positive. e stock was a top contributor in the rst quarter driven by the company’s debt and cost reduction plan exceeding expectations. However, NRG was the third worst detractor in the second quarter despite activist investors taking an equity stake in the company, recommending two new Board members, and laying out a plan for additional cost savings above the $500 million already achieved. Short-term hiccups comprised of higher than expected advisory fees related to the formation of a Business Review Committee spurred by the activists as well as warmer weather caused the company to miss earnings. e stock rebounded strongly in the third quarter on news that the Board of Directors accepted a 3-Year Plan presented by the Business Review Committee. is plan entails further cost and debt reduction plus business simpli cation, essentially reinforcing our initial analysis that the stock price was trading at a signi cant discount to the value of NRG’s individual businesses.

Keeley Asset Management Comments on NRG Energy Inc. - Oct 24, 2016

Utility company NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG) was the Fund’s leading detractor this quarter, dropping more than 25% and costing the Fund 38 basis points in performance. Weaker than expected power pricing and debt concerns at one of the company’s operating subsidiaries caused investors to worry about long-term earnings potential.

Keeley Asset Management Comments on NRG Energy - Oct 21, 2016

NRG Energy (NYSE:NRG) was the Fund’s leading detractor this quarter, dropping over 25% and costing 82 basis points in performance. The stock was strong in the first half of this year and was the Fund’s leading contributor last quarter, but the price has been in decline despite beating second quarter estimates and maintaining guidance. Its peers lowered guidance due to a warmer 2015 winter, thus lowering power pricing, yet NRG is hedged for the year and continues to execute its turnaround plan.

Keeley Funds Comment on NRG Energy Inc. - Aug 03, 2016

Utilities was the Fund’s strongest performing sector and also held the Fund’s two leading contributors. The first, NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG) rose over 15% and added 74 basis points in performance. NRG Energy engages in the production, sale, and distribution of energy and energy services in major competitive power markets. The stock price gained as independent power producer valuations were broadly re-rated higher following the announced acquisition of Talen Energy by Riverstone Holdings. Higher energy prices also provided earnings upside.

John Keeley Comments on NRG Energy - Apr 26, 2016

Also in the Utilities sector, NRG Energy (NYSE:NRG) was a solid contributor during the quarter. The power company engages in the production, sale, and distribution of energy and energy services. The company announced earnings that were in-line with analyst expectations and also announced it was cutting its dividend to expedite its deleveraging process. While we did not believe that cutting the dividend was necessary, doing so provided comfort to investors that management was serious about balance sheet improvement. We believe the stock is attractively priced.
