••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Cheniere Energy Inc is a Houston-based energy company primarily engaged in LNG-related businesses. It owns and operates the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana. The business segments are LNG terminal business and LNG and natural gas marketing business.

Cheniere Energy is a Texas-based energy company that owns and operates a liquefied natural gas terminal through ownership interest and management agreements with subsidiaries. Cheniere's operations are divided between its LNG terminal business and its LNG and natural gas marketing business. At the LNG terminal, regasification facilities convert liquefied natural gas back to natural gas, as well as liquefy natural gas at any of the liquefaction facilities held by the company. The LNG and natural gas marketing business complements the main segment by developing a portfolio of long-term, short-term, and spot LNG purchase agreements. The marketing business transports LNG cargo to Cheniere's terminals and maximizes margins on the cargo.

Is It Time to Follow Seth Klarman and Cash Out? Seth Klarman is returning cash to investors
You Won't Guess Seth Klarman's Biggest Position With the CAPE ratio at its 2nd-highest level ever, what is the bearish Klarman doing?
Baupost Group's largest U.S. equity positions are Cheniere Energy (LNG), Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF) and Viasat (NASDAQ:VSAT). Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) allocated 11.6%, 10.04% and 10.02% of his portfolio to just these three names. Cheniere is a liquefied natural gas exporter whose revenue is based on 20-year-long contracts with big oil companies. Synchrony Financial is a credit card processing company. Viasat is a sattelite company with subscribers like the government, the military and airlines. You could say these appear to be fairly defensive positions with locked-in revenue streams. His largest position, however, cash, makes up 42% of the entire portfolio. If we ignore for a moment Baupost may have global positions and private real estate investments, more than 70% of the portfolio is invested extremely defensively. I have identified three reasons why.
