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 Comcast Corp

Wallace Weitz Comments on Comcast - Apr 22, 2016

Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is the largest operator of cable delivered Broadband and Pay-TV service in the United States and, through its NBC Universal subsidiary, is a global entertainment company. After abandoning its bid to acquire Time Warner Cable, Comcast has refocused on execution in its core cable business–investing in higher broadband speeds and introducing a new best-in-class user interface for its Pay-TV customers (dubbed X1). The Company is aggressively rolling out X1 across its footprint, driving higher customer satisfaction and improved customer retention. At NBC Universal, results continue to positively surprise investors thanks to box office hits like Jurassic World, and new attractions like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter driving record attendance at its theme parks. Despite investor concerns over “cord cutters” and “skinny bundles,” we believe the Pay-TV business is more resilient than feared, and thanks to its position in broadband and content, Comcast is well positioned for the future.
