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.

Oracle Corp is a computer software company. It sells enterprise information technology solutions, including databases, middleware, applications, and hardware. The Company primarily offers software licenses, support, and maintenance services worldwide.

Oracle sells a wide range of enterprise IT solutions, including databases, middleware, applications, and hardware. While software licenses, support, and maintenance continue to represent roughly 70% of revenue, the firm is undergoing a mix shift toward cloud-based subscriptions that should necessitate continued heavy investment in the business model transition.

First Eagle Global Value Fund Comments on Oracle - Aug 03, 2017

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) continued to demonstrate progress in transitioning its business from a front- end sales model to a cloud-based subscrip-tion model. Some investors had questioned whether midsize and smaller businesses would adopt the new model, but in the second quarter, these customers appeared to do so. The trend had a positive impact on Oracle’s share price.

Jeff Auxier Comments on Oracle - May 09, 2017

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)’s cloud revenue growth continues to expand reaching $1.2B in the most recent quarter, a growth of 62% year over year. Oracle is selling more enterprise SaaS than any cloud services provider in the world, and claims their new Gen2 IaaS is both faster and lower cost than Amazon web services.

Yacktman Asset Management Comments on Oracle - May 03, 2017

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)’s shares rose during the quarter along with general strength in the technology sector, which also lifted investments in Microsoft and Cisco. Oracle’s stock was also helped by solid earnings results and a continued transition to a more subscription-based revenue model and away from large one-time contracts.

First Eagle Investment Comments on Oracle - May 01, 2017

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) contributed, as well. We have spoken for some time about the company’s transition from selling traditional licenses to selling cloud-based software products. In the early stages, this transition diluted revenues because the company’s upfront license fees shrank before the stream of annual payments that would replace them had an opportunity to grow. The company’s most recent quarterly earnings report showed improving revenue growth as Oracle began to benefit from the layered annual payments it receives from its cloud-based business.

Weitz Funds Comments on Oracle - Nov 11, 2016

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) is the market share leader in sales of database software and is number two in enterprise software, globally. Oracle has moved aggressively to rewrite its enterprise applications, which were previously available for on premise installation, as Software as a Service (SaaS) products. The company has gained significant traction in moving customers to SaaS and we believe will gain share in the overall enterprise applications market. Oracle recently announced the availability of its Database as a Service offering, which it believes will enable customers to move their database workloads to the Oracle Cloud. We believe the company will grow as its new applications gain acceptance with its large base of customers.

Yacktman Funds Comments on Oracle - May 04, 2016

Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)’s shares rallied after the company reported better-than-expected results. We continue to think the shares are attractive at the current valuation. Although Oracle’s best days of growth are likely behind the company, we think the business can produce strong free cash flow and continue to expand its business over time.

Bill Nygren, David Herro Comment on Oracle - Apr 11, 2016

The largest contributor to performance for the quarter was Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) (U.S.), which returned 12%. Shares reacted positively to stronger-than-expected fiscal third quarter results from the cloud-based business. We believe Oracle’s successful transition to the cloud indicates that the company is on the right track. Management also recently announced a $10 billion increase to Oracle’s existing share repurchase program. Even though its stock has enjoyed recent price increases, we believe Oracle remains undervalued relative to its normalized earnings power.

Steven Romick Comments on Oracle - Feb 01, 2016

We had some puts and takes that drove 2015’s performance. Microsoft and Alphabet (formerly Google) performed quite well but Oracle lagged. Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) continued to transition its business to the cloud last year but it has been proceeding more slowly than investors or the company expected. Concern about the transition and weak software license sales led to the stock’s decline. Given the undemanding valuation and high level of recurring revenue, we used a drop in the share price to increase our position.
