1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

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 EMC Corp

Daniel Loeb Comments on EMC Corp - Nov 02, 2016

During the Second Quarter, Dell announced a large bond issuance to finance the acquisition of EMC Corp. While the Dell issuance is not a situation that would traditionally be popular with event-driven or distressed credit mandates, we believed market dynamics led the deal to price ~200bps wider than where we valued the bonds. Following its own LBO in 2013, Dell significantly improved its business through a variety of operational improvements and cost cutting initiatives. We believed the company would follow a similar playbook with the EMC (NYSE:EMC) acquisition and that the pro forma company would be a market leader in several areas including external storage, integrated infrastructure, and server virtualization software. Dell has stated a goal of achieving investment grade ratings within 18 – 24 months of the acquisition, setting a path to tightening in long duration bonds and to attractive returns for our portfolio.

David Rolfe Comments on EMC - Oct 15, 2015

Over the past several years, EMC (NYSE:EMC) has done an excellent job reinvesting earnings to keep pace with the constantly evolving IT landscape. Publicly traded EMC subsidiary, VMware, is a good example. With a commanding lead in compute virtualization, we saw VMware's profits plowed back into R&D and acquisitions, leading to compelling product offerings for storage virtualization and network virtualization, both necessary elements for converting on-premises IT investments into so called "software defined" data centers. As for EMC's traditional, "core" storage business, again management has done a very good job sustaining profit share in an IT environment characterized by stagnating budgets and lengthening decision cycles. Over the past few product cycles, we've seen plenty of product cannibalization of EMC's existing product portfolio, which we think is a quite positive, albeit rare, trait for such a large, established IT shop - launching highly successful product lines (from a revenue standpoint) including: all-flash arrays; vendor agnostic cloud-based storage; and hyper-converged architectures and solutions, to name a few.

However, management has noted that these products have meaningfully lower return profiles compared to previous cycles. We surmise that this shrinking profitability pie is related to the proliferation of pure cloud-based solutions, often used as a substitute to traditional on-prem solutions. While this is not a new trend, however, we are of the strong opinion the market significantly overestimates the available profits for these cloud-based players and we question the long-term viability of them as substitutes, especially should a more difficult funding environment emerge. That said, we have no edge in predicting the timing of such a macro-oriented event, and in the mean-time, EMC's highly profitable business must continue to compete with "not -for-profit" substitutes. Combined with several new investment opportunities that emerged during the quarter, and enforcing our self-imposed cap of 22 stocks, we decided to sell EMC from portfolios to fund more attractive ideas.

From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s Wedgewood Partners third quarter 2015 letter.
