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.

Guru Investment Theses on Liberty Formula One Group

Wally Weitz Comments on Formula One - May 18, 2017

Formula One (NASDAQ:FWONA), which began in 1950, is an iconic global motorsports business. The 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship spans 20 races in 20 countries across five continents. In January, Liberty Media closed on its 100% acquisition of the Formula One racing series. Upon closing, the Liberty Media tracking stock was renamed Liberty Formula One Group. Investors are enthusiastic about the highly regarded executive and newly appointed chairman, Chase Carey. Furthermore, the potential to grow Formula One under Liberty Media’s guidance–greater sponsorship prospects, the potential for new races and venues to grow awareness of the sport, and new opportunities to bring Formula One content to digital platforms excite investors.
