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 Rowan Companies PLC

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Rowan - Dec 09, 2015

Rowan (NYSE:RDC) is an offshore driller. Offshore drilling is a dirty term among investors these days, but the industry has to exist. As great as shale is it can’t supply every barrel. RDC has a significant revenue backlog and a fleet of young high-spec rigs. They also have a self-help opportunity set to improve margins and drive efficiencies that they are already making tangible progress on. They do not have any financial commitments to pay for additional newbuild rigs, unlike many peers. And they have significant liquidity. Consider that their market cap is $2 billion. Against that, they have $200 million in cash and $800 million in cumulative free cash flow over the course of 2016/17 in our Low Case.
