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 Del Taco Restaurants Inc

KEELEY All Cap Value Fund Comments on Del Taco Restaurants - Apr 23, 2018

Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ:TACO) engages in developing, franchising, owning, and operating Del Taco quick-service Mexican-American restaurants. The stock sold off last quarter on concerns regarding future margin headwinds stemming from both food and labor inflation. These concerns were proven correct as the company slightly missed fourth quarter 2017 earnings and lowered its 2018 guidance. In addition, the industry continues to fight for market share by pushing “value bundles” led by the larger brands such as McDonalds. We continue to believe the company is well positioned with its unique “fresh” menu offerings and has ample growth opportunities outside its core West Coast roots.

Keeley Funds Comments on Del Taco Restaurants - Feb 07, 2018

Del Taco Restaurants, Inc (NASDAQ:TACO) engages in developing, franchising, owning, and operating Del Taco quick-service Mexican-American restaurants. Led by a recently promoted CEO, John Cappasola, the California based company has been successful at revitalizing the brand and introducing new products as evident by sixteen consecutive quarters of systemwide sales growth. Despite reporting sales growth of 4.1% in the third quarter, the stock sold off on concerns regarding future margin headwinds stemming from both food and labor inflation. In addition, the industry continues to fight for market share by pushing “value bundles” led by the larger brands such McDonalds. We continue to believe the company is well positioned to weather this environment and will continue to prudently grow outside its’ core West Coast roots utilizing a barbell menu strategy of new entrees combined with compelling “buck and under” menu items.
