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 Rite Aid Corp

Mario Gabelli Comments on Rite Aid Corp. - Aug 15, 2017

Rite Aid Corp. (0.3%)(RAD – $2.95 –NYSE)(NYSE:RAD) is a Camp Hill, Pennsylvania based retail drugstore chain. The company originally entered into a $17.2 billion merger with Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc, another international pharmacy operator, during October of 2015. The deal was marked by a lengthy and complex regulatory review which lengthened the timeline past its January 30, 2017 termination date. At that point, the deal was subsequently extended to June 30, 2017 and the price revised to $14.2 billion. Approaching this second termination date and due to opposition by the Federal Trade Commission, the parties restructured the deal to an asset sale whereby Walgreens Boots Alliance will acquire 2,186 Rite Aid Corp. stores across the country for a price of $5.175 billion and the payment of a $325 million termination fee associated with the original deal. The asset sale is expected to face a simpler antitrust approval process and reach its conclusion by the end of the year.

David Einhorn Comments on Rite Aid - May 17, 2017

RAD (NYSE:RAD) fell from $8.24 to $4.25. We had expected that Walgreens and RAD would satisfy regulatory concerns and close the merger at $9 per share. Instead, the deal was re-cut to between $6.50 and $ 7.00, and even at this date, the regulatory concerns are not resolved. We are watching the situation carefully and we have trimmed the position, as our original thinking was incorrect.
