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 Vista Outdoor Inc

First Eagle Investment Comments on Vista Outdoor - May 01, 2017

Among the quarter’s detractors, Vista Outdoor (NYSE:VSTO)’s stock experienced the largest percentage decline. Vista is a leading supplier of ammunition, and it also provides bicycle helmets and other sporting goods. In recent years, it acquired a number of sporting equipment companies, and during the quarter, disappointing sales at these businesses forced Vista to take write-offs. In addition, bullet sales declined sharply following the US presidential election, as gun owners—less worried about a harsher regulatory environ-ment—felt less need to stock up on ammunition.

Keeley Funds Comments on Vista Outdoor - Apr 27, 2017

Vista Outdoor, Inc. (NYSE:VSTO) designs, manufactures and markets consumer products for the shooting and outdoor sports markets. The company was a division within Alliance TechSystems (ATK), an aerospace and defense contractor, and became its own stand-alone entity when it was spun out when Alliance merged with Orbital Sciences. Vista had become the leading consolidator of the fragmented outdoor sports industry diversifying away from its core shooting sports products via accretive acquisitions which leveraged the company’s customer base and distribution network. Unfortunately, sporting goods store closures/bankruptcies (Sports Authority) and hoarding of ammunition into the Presidential election (as most had expected a Democratic win), led to excess inventory in the channel. In addition, an expected pickup in shooting accessory sales (holsters, scopes, etc.), Vista’s most profitable products, has not materialized despite the strength in gun sales over the past two years. A perfect storm has hit this new company, but we believe expectations are extremely low and all the bad news is in the stock. The company has not lost market share, the excess inventory shall clear as the outdoor and shooting sports categories continue to grow, and management will thus reset guidance to rebuild credibility.

Keeley Asset Management Comments on Vista Outdoor - Oct 21, 2016

Vista Outdoor (NYSE:VSTO), which designs, manufactures and markets outdoor sports and recreation products, also was a detractor this quarter. The stock declined over 17% and cost the Fund 23 basis points in performance following weak first quarter earnings. Customers shifted their spending to handguns and away from Vista’s core shooting accessories given fears of increased gun control laws. The company expects these delayed purchases to occur later this year and did not lower full-year guidance.
