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:

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.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on ViaSat - Apr 15, 2016

ViaSat (NASDAQ:VSAT) (+20%; +1.1%), an integrated satellite company, reported a substantial 7% increase in average revenue per user (ARPU) year-over-year. Customer churn declined with the company’s focus on higher value, stable subscribers. Additionally, news reports that American Airlines would reexamine its in-flight Wi-Fi contract with ViaSat’s competitor, Gogo, implied that ViaSat could win the new contract given its superior service quality. CEO Mark Dankberg is a large owner who has invested wisely in expanding ViaSat’s capacity and product lines. The company plans to launch a revolutionary new satellite broadband constellation (ViaSat-3) in 2019 that has the potential to further ViaSat’s lead in the industry. Although ViaSat-3 is not fully reflected in our appraisal, it offers significant longer-term upside to our value and the share price.
