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 The Kroger Co

Jeff Auxier Comments on Kroger - Aug 08, 2018

Quest Diagnostics Inc. (NYSE:DGX)



Revenues for the quarter were up 3.7% to $1.88 billion. This marks 16 consecutive quarters of revenue growth. Quest realized $180 million in tax savings and will use $75 million of this to reinvest into and grow the business. Quest’s new partnership with UnitedHealth Group provides an avenue for continued growth as they saw a net increase of 28 million lives available to them due to the partnership. Quest’s annual savings from its cost savings program ‘Invigorate’ were $1.3 billion, and they expect these savings to continue into next year. Currently working with multiple partners on a data management program that will utilize blockchain technology to increase data security as well as decrease costs.

Jeff Auxier Comments on Kroger - Feb 06, 2018

After a rough start to the year, Kroger (NYSE:KR) delivered a net earnings increase of 1.5% vs. an earnings decline of 56% year over year. This improvement was driven by their record-setting Black Friday results for general merchandise and record sales at Fred Meyer. Digital revenue was up 109% from the continued positive response to Kroger’s online-grocery ordering service. Recently the company has been in discussions with Chinese online powerhouse­ Alibaba. We have been very impressed with Kroger’s use of data analytics. With a nationwide shortage of both trucks and drivers, shipping costs are up over 18% this past year. This will pressure margins for the online delivery model. Companies like Kroger with a vast store base should have an advantage. Additionally, 2017 saw some of the biggest price declines in food since 1950. Recently those price fundamentals show signs of improving.

Jeff Auxier Comments on Kroger - Aug 03, 2017

Kroger (NYSE:KR) is the leading grocer in the US. The price of groceries has declined for 18 consecutive months which represents one of the longest declines in over 50 years. Egg prices are down over 60% in the past three years. Eating at home is a tremendous bargain compared to eating out. New competitors like Amazon/Whole Foods and foreign entrants Aldi and Lidl have added to the negative sentiment. Kroger has competed very well with Walmart for several years now. Kroger is a fierce competitor and after visiting several stores in three states we are convinced they offer compelling food value and strong execution. At 11 times depressed earnings it looks too cheap.
