Profitability Summary

We take all the information about a company's profitability (such as its margins, capital efficiency, free cash flow generating ability, and more) and consolidate it into one single number - the profitability score. The higher the profitability score, the more profitable the company is.

Past Growth

To be successful and remain in business, both growth and profitability are important and necessary. Net Income growth is often seen as a sign of a company's efficiency from an operational standpoint, but is influenced heavily by a company's goals and challenges and should therefore be assessed in conjunction with other metrics like revenue and operating income growth.

Margins

Profit margins represent what percentage of sales has turned into profits. Simply put, the percentage figure indicates how many cents of profit the company has generated for each dollar of sale.

Profit margins help investors assess if a company's management is generating enough profit from its sales and whether operating costs and overhead costs are being contained.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow (FCF) is the money a company has left over after paying its operating expenses and capital expenditures. The more free cash flow a company has, the more it can allocate to dividends, paying down debt, and growth opportunities.

If a company has a decreasing free cash flow, that is not necessarily bad if the company is investing in its growth.
