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.

Jerome Dodson Comments on IBM - Jul 25, 2017

Our worst performer was International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), one of the world’s largest providers of information-technology solutions and services. The stock fell 11.7% from $174.14 to $153.83, reducing the Fund’s return by 49 basis points. Investors were disappointed by IBM’s weak quarterly operating margins, and questioned whether the company will be able to meet its annual earnings guidance. The stock fell again when famed investor Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) sold a third of his shares. While we recognize the near-term challenges, we believe IBM’s transition to a software-and analytics-oriented business will create a lot of value, so we’re holding onto our position.

Jerome Dodson Comments on IBM - Apr 26, 2017

International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), one of the world’s largest providers of information technology solutions and services, rose 4.9% from $165.99 to $174.14, contributing 27 basis points to the Fund’s return. Robust demand for its analytics and cloud software drove better-than-expected earnings. The company also saw growth rebound in China, aided by an increase in large mainframe upgrade deals with Chinese banks.

Jerome Dodson Comments on International Business Machines - Jan 25, 2017

International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), one of the world’s largest providers of information technology solutions and services, rose 20.6%, from $137.62 to $165.99, contributing 119 basis points to the Fund’s return. The stock moved higher as investors became more optimistic about the company’s transformation from a stodgy old provider of mainframes to an exciting trendsetter in data analytics, cloud software and cognitive solutions.

Parnassus Fund Comments on International Business Machines - May 09, 2016

International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), one of the world’s largest providers of information technology solutions and services, rose 10.1% from $137.62 to $151.45, adding 48 basis points to the Fund. The stock slumped early in the quarter after the company delivered weaker-than-expected earnings due to stiff currency headwinds and sluggish demand for its legacy software. However, the stock rebounded, as investors became more optimistic about IBM’s growth prospects related to its newer software offerings and the Watson Data Analytics Platform. Investor sentiment continued to move higher after IBM announced several strategic acquisitions, including a $2.6 billion purchase of a private healthcare analytics provider. We still see plenty of upside in the stock as IBM gains further traction with its high-growth software and analytics offerings, which should result in higher earnings in the future.
