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 Unilever PLC

Hotchkis & Wiley Comments on Unilever - May 10, 2018

Unilever (NYSE:UL) is one of the leading suppliers of consumer goods in the food, home care, and personal care product categories. Leveraging its brand strength, Unilever has attained #1 or #2 market share across 85% of its business. We believe it is attractively valued and management has implemented plans to expand margins in the coming years while returning capital to shareholders.

Jeff Auxier Comments on Unilever - Feb 06, 2018

Turnover headwinds from a stronger euro and overall weak market demand led to a challenging quarter for Unilever (NYSE:UL). Underlying sales growth of 2.6% was driven by their emerging markets’ 6.3% growth while developed markets declined 2.3% in the quarter.

In February 2013, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) and 3G Capital announced a deal to acquire the 144-year old H.J. Heinz Co. for $23 billion.
