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 Time Warner Cable Inc

MS Global Franchise Fund Comments on Time Warner Cable Inc - Aug 11, 2014

During the quarter, we initiated a position in Time Warner (TWC)(3.0%), which is one of the largest U.S. cable network businesses and parent company of Warner Brothers film and TV studios. Time Warner networks include CNN, HBO and Turner Networks. Return on operating capital at the cable networks is currently over 50% and closer to 15% at the film studios. We believe Time Warner is one of the best run cable network businesses in North America as it offers almost pure exposure to high return businesses where other networks companies often do not. The company is the leader in original scripted content in North America and also has a leading film franchise. It has an extensive film library and is able to monetize its content not just in the U.S., but globally. The stock is trading on a free cash flow yield of about 7%, with free cash flow expected to grow over 6% per year for several years to come.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Time Warner Cable Inc - Jul 30, 2014

Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC) (0.3%) (TWC - $147.30 - NYSE) is the second largest cable operator in the U.S., with 11 million subscribers located primarily in New York City, Los Angeles, the Carolinas, and the Midwest. The company was spun-off from Time Warner in March 2009. After several strong years of growth and shareholder returns, the company encountered customer service and competitive challenges in late 2012 which left it vulnerable to takeover. Indeed, Charter Communications (less than 0.1%), backed by Liberty Media (0.7%), attempted on several occasions to acquire the company in 2013. Finally in February 2014, Comcast (0.7%), the largest cable operator in the U.S., agreed to acquire TWC in an all stock transaction. Charter subsequently agreed to effectively split TWC with Comcast, making it a better transaction for all involved. While the proposed deals have been criticized in the press, we expect it to close early in 2015.
