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 Treehouse Foods Inc

David Rolfe Comments on TreeHouse - Oct 16, 2017

After a relatively short holding period of just 12 months, we sold our TreeHouse (NYSE:THS) position. After the acquisition of the Private Brands business from ConAgra in November of 2015, the Company became by far the largest manufacturer and distributor of private label grocery products in the U.S. With notable size and scale through unmatched scale in both manufacturing and distribution, we believed TreeHouse would significantly benefit from the secular shift toward private label, particularly in higher margin natural and organic segments, while driving out costs in lower growth segments. Specifically, the shift toward private label brands was one of the rare growth opportunities in the increasingly cut-throat battles in nearly every aisle of the grocery store business. We see private brands all around us in our local family-owned grocery stores and in the big national chain stores, as well as food retailers that are uniquely private label – Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Aldi, and Costco.

Our investment thesis began to be challenged earlier in the year, as forecasted synergies from the Private Brands acquisition were slow to emerge. In addition, the cadence and frequency of privately-owned businesses pricing bids began to shorten from the industry standard 12-month pricing, rendering significant volatility to financial results – particularly at the earnings line. The Company’s response – like most of the industry’s – has been to protect revenues by reducing prices. By this point our original thesis was compromised enough that we sold our position to redeploy capital back into more promising portfolio positions.

David Rolfe Comments on Treehouse Foods - Apr 14, 2017

Treehouse Foods (NYSE:THS) was one of our better performers in the first quarter. Remember that we added to our position on weakness in Q4, after what we viewed as a confluence of unfortunate, shorter-term events, plus we saw a lot of reassurance in the Company’s Q4 report that our long-term thesis remains intact. In the fourth quarter, revenues rebounded in the acquired Private Brands business; the Company continued to deliver on Private Brands synergies and cost savings; and the legacy Treehouse business continued to report healthy volume growth, which was well ahead of the broad industry, along with improving margins. Furthermore, there were several signs within the quarter that large retailers were aggressively culling their business with major brands and shifting more shelf space to private label programs, as traditional branded food players continue to struggle with declining volumes, and as established retailers face competition from alternative retailers such as Aldi and Trader Joe’s, both of which depend heavily on private label. This industry-wide shift to private label share has been trending for many years and remains a primary tenet of our long-term thesis for Treehouse, and this shorter -term plateau shift in share gains validates our longer-term thinking. Finally, we see it as likely that the Company should be able to deliver results ahead of market expectations as we move through 2017, given that the Company has factored roughly flat earnings growth in its legacy business into its full-year guidance, yet the strong results of this business in recent quarters, as well as the signs we are seeing of an acceleration in near-term private label share gains across the industry, lead us to believe that this guidance will prove conservative. Over the longer term, we remain believers in the Company’s ability to deliver healthy growth in earnings and cash flows as it wrings value from the Private Brands acquisition, consolidates the growing private label industry, and diverts its internal resources to higher-growth/higher-margin categories while continually removing operating costs.
