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.

Overall Performance Total equity, or the value of the Corporation's assets minus its liabilities ("Net Asset Value" or "NAV"), decreased by $37.2 million during the three months ended August 31, 2016. This equates to a reduction in the NAV per common share of $0.32. The net loss for the three months ended August 31, 2016 of $37.2 million, was primarily due to unrealized net losses on investments in uranium of $35.7 million and operating expenses of $1.5 million. Unrealized net losses on investments in uranium, during the three months ended August 31, 2016, were caused by decreases in the spot prices, partly offset by the increase in the U.S. dollar to Canadian dollar exchange rate. Operating expenses of $1,515,000, partially offset by income from lending of uranium of $35,000, for the three months ended August 31, 2016, represents approximately 0.2% of the NAV at February 29, 2016. Current Market Conditions Uranium prices continued to be under downward pressure over the course of the last six months, with prices reaching a high of USD$32.15 per pound U3O8 on March 1, 2016 and then dropping to USD$25.00 per pound U3O8 range by mid-July 2016. Uranium prices in 2011, prior to the Fukushima events, were in the range of USD$70.00 per pound U3O8. Analysts point to continued increases in primary mine production (despite negative price signals) and excess secondary supplies as the reasons for persistent oversupply in the market. On the demand side of the equation, the slow pace of reactor restarts in Japan and relatively low levels of utility contracting have failed to provide the conditions for a sustained rally in prices off of levels not seen since 2005. The low level of current contracting volumes, however, is expected to become a positive driver as substantial levels of utility reactor requirements remain uncommitted in future years. The contracting cycle that usually precedes the arrival of a period of significant unfilled requirements should rapidly bring the supply and demand conditions back into balance, and potentially into a sustained period of shortfall. The potential for shortfall exists in the fact that the lead times required for new mine production are extremely long in the uranium sector, and that an extended period of low prices has not incentivized the required investment needed to advance new projects. The broader fundamentals of the nuclear energy market continue to be positive and stand in stark contrast to the near term uranium price weakness. Presently, 447 reactors are operable around the world with 59 under construction and an additional 168 units firmly planned or ordered. The ten new reactors connected to the grid globally in 2015 resulted in a net gain of almost 5,000 Mwe of installed nuclear capacity - which represents the highest annual growth in capacities in the past 25 years. This growth is being driven largely by the emerging markets of China, India, South Korea and Russia, however, the more traditional, developed markets are also building new reactors. The United Kingdom is advancing major new nuclear power projects on multiple sites and the U.S. added one unit to its fleet in 2016 with four more currently under construction. The need for large amounts of reliable baseload electricity, environmental concerns around carbon emissions, and crisis level air pollution, are driving decision makers increasingly towards nuclear energy. Even with significant competition from heavily subsidized renewables and low natural gas prices, the need for grid-stabilizing, base load, nuclear power should continue to be recognized and valued in the global energy mix. With global nuclear energy capacities expected to grow between two and three percent each year for the next decade and beyond, the long term outlook for the uranium market remains positive.
