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.

Entercom Communications Corp was organized in 1968 as a Pennsylvania corporation. It is a radio broadcasting company in the United States.

The technology, developed by iBiquity Digital Corporation, is also known as 'HD Radio' The Company has a minority equity interest in iBiquity. It currently utilizes HD Radio Digital technology on its FM stations. The advantages of digital audio broadcasting over traditional analog broadcasting technology include improved sound quality, additional channels and the ability to offer a variety of auxiliary services. HD Radio technology permits a station to transmit radio programming in both analog and digital formats. The Company's stations are typically classified by their format, such as news, talk, classic rock, adult contemporary, alternative, oldies and jazz, among others. A station's format enables it to target specific segments of listeners sharing certain demographics. Advertisers and stations use data published by audience measuring services to know how many people within particular geographical markets and demographics listen to specific stations. The Company's geographically and demographically diverse portfolio of radio stations allows it to deliver targeted messages to specific audiences for advertisers on a local, regional and national basis. It operates with a nationwide portfolio of 23 markets; San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Denver, Portland, Sacramento, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Austin, Norfolk, Buffalo, New Orleans, Memphis, Providence, Greensboro, Greenville/Spartanburg, Rochester, Madison, Wichita, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Springfield (MA) and Gainesville/Ocala. The Company's stations compete for listeners and advertising revenue with other radio stations within their respective markets. In addition, its stations compete for audiences and advertising revenues with other media such as network and cable television, newspapers and magazines, outdoor advertising, direct mail, yellow pages, Internet, satellite radio, wireless media alternatives, cellular phones and other forms of advertisement. As the owner, lessee or operator of various real properties and facilities, the Company is subject to a number of federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations.
