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.

Signature Select Canadian Equity Fund Comments on Bank of Nova Scotia - Dec 08, 2015

In financials, Bank of Nova Scotia (NYSE:BNS) detracted from performance given concerns about its exposure to emerging markets. We find the bank offers excellent value at current levels as it has not been this inexpensive in years.

Risks Are Rebalancing, but Economic Activity Remains Weak: Scotiabank Economics' Global Outlook
TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 17, 2016) - Global economic activity remains weak. At roughly 3%, 2016 represents the slowest year for global growth since the Great Financial Crisis. The reasons for this underperformance are now well known, though they vary by country. They generally involve the following elements: structural adjustments in many countries, efforts to reduce overcapacity in most, recurring natural disasters, repeated geopolitical events such as 'Brexit', and upcoming national elections and potential policy changes in a number of major countries, including the United States. Despite this weak economic performance, there are tentative signs of a long-awaited investment recovery in the U.S. In addition, Chinese economic activity appears to be picking up following the weakness earlier in the year, oil prices have risen, (a positive development for oil exporting countries like the United States and Canada) and the immediate impacts of 'Brexit' have not been as pronounced as feared. "For the first time in a long time, we are feeling more optimistic about our forecast, even though we have revised growth down for both Canada and the United States this year," said Jean-François Perrault, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at Scotiabank. "Taken together, the risks suggest a more balanced economic forecast."Highlights of Scotiabank's Global Outlook include:United Kingdom: Post-Brexit data for the U.K. suggest a much stronger economy than we had anticipated, but we remain of the view that Brexit will come with significant long-term costs for the U.K. economy.Europe: Eurozone, growth will be above potential, at about 1.3% in 2017 and 1.5% in 2018.Canada: We expect growth to strengthen to an average of close to 2.0% in 2017-18, supported by infrastructure spending, stronger exports, and a gradual turnaround in oil & gas sector investment. B.C. and Ontario are expected to be the fastest growing provinces next year. Alberta should come out of recession and grow by 2.1% in 2017.United States: The stronger year-end hand-off, coupled with a further improvement in domestically generated spending, points to U.S. real GDP averaging a somewhat better 2.2% rate in 2017.Latin America: A modest acceleration in economic activity is expected in the Pacific Alliance countries, reflecting higher prices for some commodities and stronger global growth.Asia: China is on track to meet the official real GDP growth target of at least 6.5% y/y in 2016. Stimulus is supporting momentum in the short term, yet it is creating larger economic imbalances.Capital Markets: We assume that the Federal Reserve raises rates at a moderate pace beginning with a 25 basis point hike in December. Scarcity of supply of tradeable fixed income instruments will get worse in the medium term, moderating the impact of tightening U.S. monetary policy on the longer end of the yield curve. We expect Canadian government bond yields to remain below the U.S. Currency: We expect a 25bps Fed tightening in December to support the U.S. dollar (USD) and a further increase in U.S. rates to underpin broad gains well into 2017. We have lowered our British Pound to USD target to 1.20 for early 2017, but feel "overshoot" risks remain significant.Commodities: Accounting for faltering base-case fundamentals and the upside risk of an OPEC deal, we expect WTI prices to average $44/bbl in 2016 before gaining to $53 in 2017 and $57 in 2018. Metals are expected to find their bottom in 2016, though recovery dynamics between individual metals remain mixed.Watch a video of Jean-François Perrault discussing Scotiabank's Global Outlook here: https://youtu.be/Wx33lic0aWQRead Scotiabank's Global Outlook online at: http://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/0,,3112,00.htmlScotiabank provides clients with in-depth research into the factors shaping the outlook for Canada and the global economy, including macroeconomic developments, currency and capital market trends, commodity and industry performance, as well as monetary, fiscal and public policy issues.About Scotiabank

Improving Consumer Fundamentals Drives Sales Acceleration and Broadens Gains Beyond Autos: Scotiabank
TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 29, 2016) - Global car sales remained in the fast lane through the summer, advancing 8% y/y in August and lifting the year-to-date advance to nearly 6% -- the strongest gain in three years. The improvement was driven by a 20% y/y surge across Asia last month as well as by continued strong gains in Western Europe. China has been the key driver of the acceleration in car sales across Asia this year, but purchases have also picked up through the rest of the region. Excluding China, car sales in Asia climbed 4.4% y/y in August, double the advance through July. The improvement reflects some pickup in economic activity, especially in the key high-tech sector, which lifted Taiwan's export orders at a double-digit pace for the first time since early 2015.While global car sales have been stronger than expected this year, the acceleration in consumer spending has been much broader than just the auto sector, and is being driven by improving household fundamentals. Labour markets have gained momentum across most regions, reducing unemployment in Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries to the lowest level in nearly a decade and lifting incomes at the fastest pace since the global expansion began in mid-2009. Household balance sheets also continue to be buoyed by ongoing asset price appreciation, helping to broaden the advance in overall consumer purchases."Consumers are increasing their market share of overall global economic activity," said Carlos Gomes, Senior Economist and Auto Industry Specialist at Scotiabank. "Looking at the global auto market, even with record sales, purchases in developed markets still remain below historical averages and significant replacement demand remains in most countries, pointing to an automotive market with further 'room to run.'"Real non-automotive spending has been accelerating in the United States and is now advancing 3% y/y -- the fastest growth since 2006. A similar trend is also evident across Western Europe and represents a significant reversal from the declines in place from early 2008 through late 2013. The advance is even stronger in Eastern Europe, with several nations reporting increases in real non-automotive spending approaching a double-digit pace. The improving trend in consumer activity across the globe points to an eventual upturn in production and trade. However, the rebound continues to be delayed by ongoing geopolitical, business and other uncertainties.Other highlights:Overall consumer spending has also broadened across Asia, advancing by more than 4% y/y.Unemployment in OECD countries is at the lowest level in nearly a decade, boosting general consumer purchases to a near-record 62% of overall economic activity. Across South America, some improvement in consumer spending is becoming evident, despite the ongoing recession in Brazil.Vehicle purchases have actually advanced in seven of the past eight months in South America, with the exception of Brazil, which continues to post double-digit declines . Passenger vehicle sales in North American weakened in August, though we expect the soft patch to be temporary as purchases are likely to pick up as economic activity gains momentum over the remainder of 2016.Read the full Scotiabank Global Auto Report online at: http://www.scotiabank.com/ca/en/0,,3112,00.html.Scotiabank provides clients with in-depth research into the factors shaping the outlook for Canada and the global economy, including macroeconomic developments, currency and capital market trends, commodity and industry performance, as well as monetary, fiscal and public policy issues.About Scotiabank
