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 Delta Air Lines Inc

NWQ Investments Comments on Delta Airlines - Aug 17, 2017

We also initiated a position in Delta Airlines (NYSE:DAL) following the stock's relative underperformance this year. We view Delta as a best-in-class airline, with an irreplicable hub-and-spoke model centered by their Atlanta hub. The company's underperformance stems from its exposure to transatlantic routes, an area where competitive dynamics are likely to persist. While this will be a headwind, we believe Delta is well-positioned to outperform peers on the domestic front, and their investment grade balance sheet and strong free cash flow generation should allow for a meaningful return of capital to shareholders. With the company trading at a discount to legacy peers for the first time in a multi-year period, we believe the stock is setup well going forward. Delta’s stock has appreciated meaningfully since our investment.
