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 Western Digital Corp

FPA Capital Comments on Western Digital - May 09, 2016

Western Digital (NASDAQ:WDC) designs, develops, manufactures, and sells hard disk drives (HDDs), and increasingly, solid-state drives (SSDs). The company’s hard disk drives are used in desktop and notebook computers, enterprise applications, and consumer electronic applications. Among the most profitable product areas for WDC is in the enterprise drive segment. Overall, WDC’s market share in the HDD industry is roughly 44%. During the last several years, the HDD industry has consolidated substantially, and the top three companies now control nearly 100% of the market. Furthermore, WDC’s vertically integrated business model makes it the lowest-cost producer of disk drives. It is also important to note that WDC management has done a superb job of returning the firm’s strong and consistent free cash flow to shareholders via buybacks and dividends. WDC also recently made a series of bold moves that could become game-changers for the industry.

The company received approval from the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (MOFCOM) to fully integrate the Chinese assets from its acquisition of Hitachi’s disk drive business. We believe the combination could add more than $2.40 to EPS3 (using current share count), given the possible savings of more than $400 million a year in operating expenses, and $250 million in the cost of goods sold.

WDC also announced a deal to acquire SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK) for approximately $19 billion in cash and stock, catapulting the company into a leadership position in SSDs. The move gives the company a very competitive offering and should put to rest fears that WDC could be cut out of the drive business by SSD players.

A quick summary of our evaluation of potential best-case and worst-case scenarios is shown below:

  • Downside ($55 per share): $18 billion of revenue and $4.8 billion of EBITDA4. Assumes $650 million of MOFCOM synergies, $500 million of SNDK synergies (up to $1.1 billion over the long term), offset by 6% decline in the core business. Using an 8x multiple on owner earnings5 implies a stock value of $55 per share.

  • Upside ($138 per share): $18.9 billion of revenue and $5.2 billion of EBITDA. Assumes $650 million of MOFCOM synergies and $700 million of SNDK synergies (up to $1.1 billion over the long term). Using a 14x multiple on owners' earnings implies a stock value of $138 per share.

Western Digital has been in our portfolio since early 2007. The investment is a good example of how we scale up and down our position size over time.

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Western Digital Corp - Feb 09, 2016

Now, let’s turn our attention to WDC. WDC (NASDAQ:WDC) is a stock the Fund has owned for a decade and one from which we have extracted substantial realized gains over the years. In October, WDC announced they would acquire Sandisk (NASDAQ:SNDK) for $19 billion, and many shareholders were surprised by WDC’s decision.

SNDK (NASDAQ:SNDK) is a major player in the NAND flash market and holds some of the most important NAND patents, for which it receives royalties, but some investors believe SNDK is lagging Samsung’s new NAND flash chip architecture (called 3D). NAND flash semiconductor chips are the chips used in Apple iPhones, Android phones, iPads, digital cameras, and a host of other technology equipment to store information and images.

Our perspective is that WDC will be able save a substantial amount of money by having a captive source of NAND flash chips for its enterprise Solid-state Drive (SSD) products. The company believes it will save $30 million for every $100 million of enterprise SSD revenues it achieves. WDC currently has approximately $1 billion of enterprise SSD sales, and storage analysts believe the market could triple in size over the next five years. Assuming WDC maintains its market share and industry analysts are correct about the growth rate for enterprise SSDs, we believe WDC could save upwards of $1 billion within five years by acquiring SNDK. If one were to capitalize the potential $1 billion savings at a 10x multiple, WDC would be paying an adjusted $9 billion for the existing SNDK business or roughly 6x SNDK’s last twelve-months EBITDA.

Furthermore, WDC is among the largest companies in the enterprise SSD niche, and the company will be able to leverage its customer base, industry knowledge, and software it has in the enterprise Hard-disk Drive (HDD) business to go after adjacent markets with new SSD products and capture more growth and profitability in the future. These potential revenue synergies are real but difficult to quantify in a fast-growing market, and we have not incorporated them into our valuation analysis.

Paradoxically, other investors sold off WDC because HDDs are slowly being replaced by SSDs. While we do not think it as simple as one SSD replacing one HDD, even if that were the case, WDC’s acquisition of SNDK mitigates that risk. Frankly, the demand for storage is growing so fast that both technologies will be required years into the future, and in the some ways demand for HDDs is being enhanced by newer, faster SSDs that are opening up new markets like hyper-scale computing and big-data analytics.

Based on the current revenues of both companies, the recent announcement by the Chinese regulator MOFCOM4 to allow WDC to fully integrate its two separate HDD businesses, and the cost, but not revenue, synergies of combining WDC with SNDK, we believe WDC owner’s earning could reach over $10 per share after the deal closes. Thus, with WDC trading down to $60, and less recently, we believe the shares are attractively priced and we added to the position in the fourth quarter.
