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 Liberty Global PLC

Wally Weitz Comments on Liberty Global - Jul 24, 2018

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) (-13%) also underperformed in the quarter despite the announcement of a deal to sell its German cable assets at an attractive multiple. Investors seemed disappointed the transaction announcement didn’t include a commitment for how management will use the proceeds, and they showed some concern over the outcome of what is sure to be a lengthy regulatory review. We understand management’s desire to maintain flexibility, given an expected deal close in mid-2019, and trust they will allocate the proceeds in a manner that creates value for all shareholders.

David Herro Comments on Liberty Global - Oct 09, 2017

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is a European-based cable company with leading positions in the U.K. and Ireland, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland. Liberty is a significant beneficiary of the long-term structural growth in data consumption. Moreover, Liberty’s competitively advantaged network, which offers a clear speed advantage over the incumbent telco operators, provides the company with a strong competitive position that should lead to attractive incremental profitability. Liberty’s management team has proven to be adept operators while chairman (and fellow shareholder) John Malone is an outstanding capital allocator. We find Liberty’s valuation to be quite compelling; its shares trade at a significant discount to both our fundamentally driven intrinsic value as well as recent private market transactions.

Chris Davis Comments on Liberty Global - Aug 09, 2017

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is another example of a dominant, lesser-known business. The company is a leader in cable television and broadband services throughout Europe and is controlled by John Malone, a pioneer in the U.S. cable industry with an outstanding record as a capital allocator. During the past decade, Liberty Global has opportunistically acquired several European cable TV systems, most of which were inefficiently run. We expect Liberty Global to improve the efficiency of these operations substantially over time and seek expansion opportunities in a shareholder friendly manner.

Wally Weitz Comments on Liberty Global - Jul 17, 2017

The various Liberty entities offer a variety of subscription-based cash flow generators. Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is a large European cable company, which we think is very undervalued at $31 vs. our estimated value of $43. Its Latin American assets will soon be spun off into a separate company, and we expect the Liberty management to use the same consolidation “playbook” to build a valuable Latin American version of Liberty Global. Investors have been disappointed by the recent pace of quarterly progress at both Global and the Latin American subsidiary, LiLAC, but we believe that putting strong, subscription-based businesses in the hands of Liberty management is a great prescription for building business value.

Liberty’s ownership in SiriusXM (Liberty SiriusXM Group) dates back to 2009 and the depths of the Great Recession. Sirius was on the brink of bankruptcy and Liberty lent them about $400 million. The loan had a very high yield (and was repaid in under a year) but also included a “kicker” in the form of a virtually free option to acquire 40% of the company. That option was exercised and is now worth over $10 billion. Management is busily working on extracting full value from the Liberty holding company that owns its Sirius stake.

Cable TV and broadband internet providers are among our favorite types of businesses, and Charter Cable is the second-largest cable company in the U.S. Charter recently purchased Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks and is integrating them into the Charter system. This process will take another two to three years, and when completed, Charter’s shares should be worth considerably more than the current $337. We do not own Charter directly, but we do own it indirectly through Liberty Broadband and Liberty Ventures.

Liberty Broadband is a pure play on Charter, holding about 0.3 shares of Charter for every Broadband share. Ventures is a holding company that owns Charter shares and Liberty Broadband shares. The shares of both Broadband and Ventures offer ways to buy Charter at a discount to its current price. If Charter’s value increases, we should be doubly rewarded as Liberty extracts full value for the Charter shares we have bought at a discount. Nothing is ever simple with Liberty and John Malone, but investors are generally very well-served.

Weitz Value Fund Comments on Liberty Global - Apr 27, 2017

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations in 14 countries providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. Liberty Global’s shares were strong in the first calendar quarter and made up some of the ground that had been lost during the prior year. The company’s quarterly results were solid, but shares have likely been driven upward as speculation of deals in the media industry has heated up of late, including revived speculation of a potential Vodafone transaction. We view Liberty Global as a standalone provider of broadband and Pay-TV services as an attractive opportunity, and although a potential acquisition by Vodafone may create value for shareholders, our investment thesis is not dependent on such an event.

Weitz Funds Comments on Liberty Global - Jan 26, 2017

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations across Europe providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. Throughout 2016, Liberty Global suffered as the translational impact of a stronger U.S. dollar muted its reported financial results. Liberty’s revenues and expenses are generally denominated in the local currencies of its European operations, but its dollar denominated stock can create mismatches from time to time. Shares weakened, particularly in the wake of this summer’s “Brexit” vote, as the UK is the company’s largest market. Shares have recouped some of these losses as the market has further digested the Brexit event. Meanwhile, the results from the company’s new build program in the UK appear to be solid, and the pace of adding newly connected homes should accelerate into 2017. We remain confident in management’s plans to drive cost efficiencies and their new build investment strategy to provide future growth.

Wally Weitz Comments on Liberty Global - Nov 08, 2016

Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA) is the largest international cable company, with operations in 14 countries providing video, broadband Internet, fixed-line telephone and mobile services to its customers. As the worst of the Brexit fears began to abate (the United Kingdom represents roughly 38% of Liberty Global’s cash flow generation), shares of Liberty Global recovered some of their losses of the prior quarter. Shares also likely benefited from the EU’s approval of the previously announced formation of a 50/50 joint venture with Vodafone combining Liberty’s strong cable and broadband businesses with Vodafone’s mobile offering to create a more competitive “converged” bundle. We remain confident of continued growth for Liberty Global’s cable offerings and management’s ability to deliver operationally.
