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 Twenty-First Century Fox Inc

Yacktman Funds Comments on Fox - Feb 19, 2018

Toward the end of 2017, Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) and The Walt Disney Company (Disney) (NYSE:DIS) entered into a transformative transaction in which Fox will merge the majority of its assets in exchange for Disney stock in a deal we expect to receive approval from regulatory agencies. In addition to Disney shares, Fox shareholders will receive shares in “New Fox” which will retain valuable businesses including Fox News, Fox Sports, Fox Network, television stations, real estate and investments. New Fox and Disney will both benefit significantly from the lower corporate tax rate which was passed in the U.S. in late December.



For several years, we have been puzzled as others looked past the significant value we observed at Fox. We felt the market was largely ignoring Fox’s global businesses that were underearning because management was investing for future growth. Competitors in the industry better understood the value and importance of Fox’s businesses, which was demonstrated by press reports of significant interest in ownership of Star and investment stakes in Sky and Hulu by not only Disney but also Comcast, Sony and Verizon. We believe the proposed transaction with Disney, resulting in a large ownership stake in Disney’s stock, represents an exciting long-term opportunity for Fox investors, and we applaud the Murdoch family and board of directors of Fox for being fantastic stewards for shareholders and always thinking and investing for the long term.



The recent result of our Fox investment should reinforce for the Fund’s shareholders that a combination of patience and a significant discount to fair value has worked well over time. Another key takeaway is that we dynamically adjust our position size in response to valuation as a core part of our process. In mid-2014, the Fox position was 7% of assets. Today the weighting has more than doubled because Fox’s business value grew substantially in the ensuing years. In addition to an inexpensive absolute valuation, we believe Fox is a far better deal compared to alternative investment opportunities which have gotten more expensive through multiple expansion (people paying a higher price for a given level of earnings).



Many investors seek a catalyst that they think will help move shares higher in the short term. Most of the time, our investments lack such a well-defined trigger to unlock value in the near term as we are more interested in a quality business selling at a substantial discount to what we think it is worth. We are willing to wait as long as we need to if we see significantly more value than the current trading price. We see our patience as a huge competitive advantage, one that exists because Yacktman is a boutique firm. The Fund’s portfolio managers control the day-to-day decisions in the Fund and at the firm, and we only answer to ourselves, our Fund board and our investors about long-term results.

Donald Yacktman Comments on Fox - Oct 26, 2017

Fox (NASDAQ:FOX)’s shares declined in the third quarter due to general weakness in media shares. Traditional media companies continue to battle against the headwinds of change as customers abandon the traditional cable or satellite television bundle in favor of watching television content over the internet via Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and others. We think these concerns are causing many to neglect some incredibly valuable international assets at Fox that are not part of the high-cost U.S. television bundle and do not get impacted by U.S. consumers canceling cable subscriptions. We think investors will quickly revalue Fox’s shares meaningfully higher if the business results show solid momentum, similar to what we saw with Samsung.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Fox - Aug 15, 2017

After a strong first quarter, Fox (NASDAQ:FOX)’s shares retreated as the media sector fell out of favor due to renewed concerns over the declining number of pay-television subscribers. Over the last few years, Fox has struggled to handle industry challenges, currency issues, and less-than-stellar results at its network and film businesses. Due to the lack of recent business momentum, Fox’s shares have suffered from multiple contraction, while the market overall has seen significant multiple expansion. This leaves these shares very inexpensive in a world in which it remains difficult to find high quality at a low price.

We believe a significant part of Fox’s low valuation is due to the fact that it is managed for the long term by the Murdoch family, and the company is willing to make significant investments in the business, even though that might mean depressing short-term earnings. This approach has led to significant value creation over decades, but a low valuation today.

Many of our most successful investments over time are in companies like Fox, where significant assets are ignored when earnings are depressed. Over the next few years, we expect Fox’s sizable investments in India to produce substantial growth, which we think will help investors recognize some of the substantial value that we think is being overlooked today.

Yacktman Asset Management Comments on Fox - May 03, 2017

In the first quarter, Fox (NASDAQ:FOX)’s shares rose more than 15%. Fox News continued to post strong ratings even though viewership typically declines substantially after a presidential election. Tucker Carlson seamlessly replaced Megyn Kelly, who left for rival NBC, and his show achieved significantly stronger ratings than that of his predecessors. Fox continued its run of luck in sports, with a strong first-ever Super Bowl that went overtime (following an exceptional seven-game, extra-inning World Series final in the fall), and its film business had successes with Logan and HiddenFigures.

More importantly, we believe Fox continues to create substantial long-term value in its underappreciated overseas businesses. In the last three years, Fox has faced nearly a $1 billion earnings headwind from foreign currency moves, masking otherwise strong results from outside the United States.
