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 Loews Corp

Mason Hawkins Comments on Loews - Feb 11, 2015

Despite being up 1% in the fourth quarter, Loews (L), the holding company owned and managed by the Tisch family, sold off with energy and was down 12% for the year. The company’s CNA insurance unit generated strong cash flow, but its stakes in energy companies Diamond Offshore (DO) and Boardwalk Pipelines Partners (BWP) declined 30% and 29% respectively. DO has the strongest balance sheet among drilling rig operators and should be able to upgrade its fleet cheaply as distressed sellers seek capital. BWP cut its dividend to invest in additional service points along its pipeline and expand its ability to transport gas from the northeastern U.S. Loews repurchased shares amounting to approximately 3.5% of the company and has substantial liquidity to take advantage of undervalued opportunities including additional shares.

Mason Hawkins Comments on Loews - Oct 20, 2014

For the YTD period Loews (L) was the Fund’s primary performance detractor, down 13% after a 5% decline in the quarter. The stock fell because of pressure on its energy-related investments in Diamond Offshore, the drilling company, and to a lesser degree Boardwalk Pipeline. Loews recently announced the sale of Highmount Exploration and Production in line with our anticipated price. Through the last reported period in July, the company aggressively repurchased shares.

Longleaf Partners Fund Comments on Loews - Jul 24, 2014

Although Loews (L) was flat in the second quarter, it remained a detractor YTD, down 9%. The first quarter price fell after underlying holdings Diamond Offshore (DO) and Boardwalk Pipeline (BWP) disappointed. In April, DO’s results improved, and the company announced its first share buyback since 2004. After being punished for cutting its dividend in February, BWP outlined several attractive potential projects going forward and recovered in the second quarter. Loews’ other major holding, CNA Financial Corp. had a solid quarter. Loews ramped up its own share repurchases given the discount in the stock and the lack of high-return alternatives for the company’s large net cash of over $8.50/share.
