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.

Weitz Funds Comments on Praxair - Nov 16, 2015

Praxair (NYSE:PX) is an industrial gas supplier of Oxygen, Argon, Hydrogen and Helium in North and South America, Asia and Europe. These gases are integral to many industrial processes yet are often a tiny fraction of overall production costs. As a result, the industry is consolidated with only four global rational participants, which translates into pricing power for Praxair. Roughly a quarter of the company’s industrial gas production is under “take or pay” arrangements, providing coverage of fixed costs in downturns. Praxair management has proven to be excellent operators and capital allocators. The recent industrial sector downturn provided an opportunity for purchase. Prior to purchase, the company had been on our “On-Deck” list for several years.
