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 Rice Energy Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Rice Energy - Mar 16, 2017

Rice Energy Inc. (NYSE:RICE) is an independent E&P company focused on the Marcellus and Utica shales in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Shares declined in the fourth quarter due to a weakening natural gas outlook and higher exposure to Appalachia in-basin pricing following Rice’s acquisition of Vantage Energy. We believe Rice offers exposure to some of the best acreage and industry-leading production growth. We also think that the market underappreciates the value of Rice’s midstream holdings.



From Baron Energy and Resources Fund fourth quarter 2016 commentary.
