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 Community Health Systems Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Community Health Systems - Feb 05, 2016

Shares of hospital operator Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CYH) fell in the fourth quarter on an earnings miss driven by lower volumes and deteriorating payor mix. Concerns that the Affordable Care Act tailwind is largely over and leveraged companies will be hurt by rising interest rates also brought out sellers. We think the spinoff of Quorum Health will create value, HMA synergies will exceed initial guidance, record numbers of recruited doctors will boost admissions, more states will expand Medicaid, and deleveraging will strengthen the balance sheet. (Susan Robbins)
