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•

Guru Investment Theses on Acxiom Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Acxiom Corp - Oct 25, 2016

Acxiom Corporation (NASDAQ:ACXM) is a critical player in the data-driven, people-based advertising industry, whose technology, data, and connections help advertisers significantly improve the targeting and productivity of their digital advertising spend. Shares of Acxiom were up in the third quarter, driven by rapid growth in the company’s cloud-based connectivity and identity business, branded LiveRamp. LiveRamp’s products enable advertisers to resolve the hundreds of different identifiers for consumers used on devices (smart phone, tablet, computer, TV), marketing platforms (such as Facebook or Instagram) and their own internal systems to a real person in a privacy-compliant manner.
