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.

CenturyLink Inc operates as a telecommunications company in the United States. It provides broadband, voice and wireless services to consumers and businesses across the country.

With the acquisition of Embarq in 2009 and Qwest in 2011, CenturyLink is the third- largest landline phone company in the United States, providing local phone service to 10 million lines and broadband Internet to 6 million customers across 37 states. It also owns a national fiber-optic network that spans 250,000 route miles. With its pending Level 3 acquisition, the company will gain an additional 200,000 fiber route miles and 75,000 on-net buildings and become the second- largest enterprise communications provider in the U.S.

Guru Investment Theses on CenturyLink Inc

Longleaf Partners Comments on CenturyLink - Jan 22, 2018

CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) (formerly Level 3) (-10%,-1.12%, -5%,-0.52%), the global fiber and integrated communications network company, was the Fund’s largest holding and declined during the year and fourth quarter, even though the stock rallied over 22% from its November low after CTL’s purchase of Level 3 closed. Throughout, our investment case grew more compelling. The merger of Level 3’s fiber network with Qwest’s assets that CTL had previously acquired created a uniquely competitive global fiber network that has particular strengths in the higher margin, growing Enterprise segment. Level 3’s CEO Jeff Storey becoming President and COO and eventual CEO of CTL and Sunit Patel maintaining the CFO position in the combined company were critical to our support for the deal. Their leadership makes us confident that CTL management will be able to drive mid single-digit Enterprise revenue growth at high contribution margins, cut costs substantially and deliver the projected $1 billion in deal synergies, much of which will be created by moving traffic onto the company’s combined network from third parties. Despite CTL’s stronger positioning, the stock price fell, in part because Level 3 customers delayed new purchases until it was clear who would lead the combined company. But, the primary price pressure was due to fears that CTL would not be able to sustain its double-digit dividend yield (a valid concern without the Level 3 acquisition). This worry heightened after the stocks of two mostly unrelated and massively overleveraged regional operators which were more closely aligned with CTL’s legacy landline business than the fiber business, saw their stocks collapse after dividend cuts. Storey and Patel confirm that the dividend is safe based on the combined EBITDA of the Level 3 and CTL fiber networks, the synergies from the deal, and the use of Level 3’s NOLs to reduce taxes. By our estimates, once the synergies are realized, the company should deliver over $3/ share of Free Cash Flow (FCF) after capital expenditures (capex), which will amply cover the $2.16 dividend. We see material additional upside not built into our appraisal based on Patel’s record of cost cutting after mergers and the multiple players that would benefit from owning this network. When the stock price dramatically disregarded the positive fundamentals and our assessment of CTL’s intrinsic value, we bought more, including in the fourth quarter. Management and the board appeared to share our enthusiasm as demonstrated by significant December insider purchases as soon as the blackout period that prohibited purchases was lifted.
