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

DISH Network Corp provides a direct broadcast satellite subscription television service in the United States. The Company offers subscription television, audio programming and interactive television services in the United States.

Dish Network provides pay-television service to 13.6 million customers in the United States, of which we estimate 12.4 million are served via a network of owned and leased satellites. The remainder are served under the Sling brand utilizing the Internet. Dish has purchased wireless spectrum covering the U.S. through a series of transactions and government auctions over the past five years. It is now seeking ways to put that spectrum to use, potentially via a partnership with an existing carrier.
