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

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 Liberty Global PLC

Weitz Funds Comments on Liberty Global - Jan 26, 2017

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations across Europe providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. Throughout 2016, Liberty Global suffered as the translational impact of a stronger U.S. dollar muted its reported financial results. Liberty’s revenues and expenses are generally denominated in the local currencies of its European operations, but its dollar denominated stock can create mismatches from time to time. Shares weakened, particularly in the wake of this summer’s “Brexit” vote, as the UK is the company’s largest market. Shares have recouped some of these losses as the market has further digested the Brexit event. Meanwhile, the results from the company’s new build program in the UK appear to be solid, and the pace of adding newly connected homes should accelerate into 2017. We remain confident in management’s plans to drive cost efficiencies and their new build investment strategy to provide future growth.

Wally Weitz Comments on Liberty Global - Nov 08, 2016

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations in 14 countries providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. As the worst of the Brexit fears began to abate (the United Kingdom represents roughly 38% of Liberty Global’s cash flow generation), shares of Liberty Global recovered some of their losses of the prior quarter. Shares also likely benefited from the EU’s approval of the previously announced formation of a 50/50 joint venture with Vodafone combining Liberty’s strong cable and broadband businesses with Vodafone’s mobile offering to create a more competitive “converged” bundle. We remain confident of continued growth for Liberty Global’s cable offerings and management’s ability to deliver operationally.

First Eagle Investments Comments on Liberty Global - Jul 25, 2016

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA), which owns the dominant cable-TV network in Europe, declined along with other companies that have leverage in their capital structure. We have been comfortable with the level of leverage and we also believe the company has opportunities for long-term earnings, but we have concerns about short-term volatility in its generation of free cash flow.

Weitz Funds Comments on Liberty Global - Jul 20, 2016

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations in 14 countries providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. Shares fell in the first calendar quarter after an influential Wall Street analyst downgraded his outlook for the stock, principally due to concerns over continued competitive struggles in Holland. Since that time, Liberty announced it would move its Dutch operations into a 50/50 joint venture with Vodafone, allowing Liberty Global to combine its strong cable and broadband businesses with Vodafone’s mobile offering to create a more competitive, “converged” offering. Share prices declined in the second calendar quarter due to Brexit. The pound fell roughly 10% versus the U.S. dollar on the news. Without any rebound this will depress Liberty Global’s future earnings, regardless of underlying fundamentals, as its largest operation is in the United Kingdom and represents roughly 38% of its cash flow generation. Management has already turnedits attention to reducing indirect costs, better integrating its various operations, leveraging its scale and operating more efficiently. We remain confident of continued growth for Liberty Global’s cable offerings and management’s abilities to deliver operationally.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Liberty Global - Apr 22, 2016

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations in 14 countries providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. Liberty Global’s portfolio of businesses produced mixed results during the fiscal year. Continued strong results in the UK and Belgium were partially offset by continued competitive pressures and merger integration missteps in Holland, and a poorly received price increase in Germany. Furthermore, the continued strengthening of the US Dollar put a damper on Liberty’s results (reported in US Dollars). We believe the company is restoring investor confidence by learning from these missteps, taking actions within the portfolio as needed (e.g., moving the Dutch business into a joint venture with Vodafone-See Quarterly Detractors) and outlining an achievable three-year growth plan.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Liberty Global - Oct 27, 2015

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company with operations in 14 countries providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. In the second quarter, investors cheered as Liberty Global and Vodafone entered into formal talks over potential business combinations within their European operations. Although no formal details were released, Wall Street analysts began speculating on the potential for very large cost savings, and shares of both companies appreciated nicely. By the end of the third quarter, however, talks between the two broke down without any deals announced. Such a transaction had not been part of our investment thesis. We remain attracted to the organic growth story for Liberty Global as their leading position in broadband should continue to help them win market share across Europe, along with their shareholder-friendly capital allocation philosophy.
