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 ADT Inc

Wally Weitz Comments on ADT Corp - Nov 09, 2016

ADT Corp (NYSE:ADT) is a provider of monitored security, interactive home and business automation, and related monitoring services in the United States and Canada. After reaching a 2016 low of $24.94, ADT shares rose on February 15, 2016, in response to the announcement that private equity firm Apollo Global Management had agreed to acquire ADT for $42 per share, a slight discount to our mid-$40s estimate of business value. Apollo plans to combine ADT with its own alarm monitoring business, Protection One. We exited our roughly two year position at the end of February for a modest gain.
