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

General Cable Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, markets, and distributes copper, aluminum, and fiber optic wire and cable products for the energy, industrial, construction, and specialty and communications markets worldwide. The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period General Cable and certain of its executive officers made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) General Cable paid millions of dollars in bribes to government officials in foreign countries, including Angola, Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Indonesia, India, and Thailand, in order to secure business; (ii) the foregoing conduct was in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the “FCPA”); (iii) General Cable’s revenues were therefore in part the product of illegal conduct, and, as such, subject to disgorgement and unlikely to be sustainable; and (iv) the foregoing conduct, when it became known, would subject the Company to significant regulatory scrutiny and financial penalties.  The complaint further alleges that, as a result of the foregoing, General Cable’s statements about its business, operations and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times. On September 22, 2014, General Cable disclosed that it was reviewing “payment practices,” “the use of agents,” and “the manner in which the payments were reflected on our books and records” in connection with the Company’s operations in Portugal, Angola, Thailand, and India.  On this news, shares of the Company’s stock fell $0.93 per share, or 4.7%, to close at $18.96 on September 22, 2014. Subsequently, on February 10, 2016, General Cable reported that it had increased a disgorgement accrual for a potential FCPA settlement to $33 million after identifying “certain other transactions that may raise concerns.”  On this news, shares of the Company’s stock fell an additional $3.05 per share, or 31.6%, to close at $6.60 on February 11, 2016. Finally, on December 29, 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported that General Cable had entered into a non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice and “agreed to pay $75.8 million to settle allegations it paid bribes across Africa and Asia and . . . agreed to an additional $6.5 million penalty to settle accounting-related violations.”  The article further reported that the Company’s subsidiaries, “over a period of a dozen years, paid about $13 million to third-party agents and distributors,” who in turn “paid bribes to government officials in Angola, Bangladesh, China, Indonesia and Thailand to get business in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.” General Cable shareholders may, no later than March 6, 2017, petition the Court to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation.  In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class in the action.  Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.  For additional information, or to learn how to participate in this action, please visit https://www.ktmc.com/new-cases/general-cable-corporation#join.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Investors Who Have Losses In Excess Of $100,000 From Investment In General Cable Corporation (BGC) To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline In Class Action Lawsuit
STEVENSON, Md., Feb. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of General Cable Corporation (NYSE:NYSE:BGC) (“General Cable” or the “Company”) securities during the period between February 23, 2012 and February 10, 2016, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until March 6, 2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.
If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court.  The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the Class in the action.  The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in General Cable securities during the Class Period.  Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.  No class has yet been certified in the above action.The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that General Cable paid millions of dollars in bribes to government officials in foreign countries in order to secure business, which was in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the “FCPA”), General Cable’s revenues were in part the product of illegal conduct, and, as such, subject to disgorgement and unlikely to be sustainable, and the Company would be subjected to significant regulatory scrutiny and financial penalties.According to the complaint, following a September 22, 2014 announcement that the Company was reviewing payment practices, and a February 10, 2016 announcement that the Company had increased a disgorgement accrual for a potential FCPA settlement to $33 million after identifying certain other transactions that may raise concerns, the value of General Cable shares declined significantly.If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in General Cable securities purchased on or after February 23, 2012 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit our website at http://www.browerpiven.com/currentsecuritiescases.html.  You may also request more information by contacting Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.  Brower Piven also encourages anyone with information regarding the Company’s conduct during the period in question to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former employees, shareholders and others.Attorneys at Brower Piven have extensive experience in litigating securities and other class action cases and have been advocating for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s.  If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice.  You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
