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 Manchester United PLC

Baron Funds Comments on Manchester United - Jun 07, 2017

Manchester United plc (NYSE:MANU) is an English Premier League professional sports team that generates revenue from broadcasting, sponsorship, and licensing. Shares were up in the first quarter over enthusiasm around the hiring of Jose Mourinho as the new manager and the addition of marquee players to its roster. The company recently launched MUTV, a global video subscription offering, which we expect to grow over coming quarters and years. The company maintains a strong pipeline of sponsorship deals, and we expect shares to benefit as it provides greater detail on its merchandising and licensing strategy and new growth initiatives in 2017.

Baron Funds Comments on Manchester United plc - May 17, 2016

Manchester United plc (NYSE:MANU) is an English Premier League professional sports team that generates revenue from broadcasting, sponsorship, and licensing. Shares declined in the first quarter over concerns that Manchester United will not qualify for the Champions League next season. We believe the team still has a chance to qualify, and even if it does not, the financial impact will be modest. We expect the company to continue to benefit from future sponsorship deals, the roll-out of new merchandise agreements, and a new digital offering under development. (Ashim Mehra)
