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 The Madison Square Garden Co

Mario Gabelli Comments on Madison Square Garden Co. - Jul 26, 2016

Madison Square Garden Co. (NYSE:MSG)(0.9%) (MSG – $$172.51 – NYSE) is an integrated sports and entertainment company that owns the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The Forum, and that iconic New York venue, Madison Square Garden. These evergreen content and venue assets benefit from sustainable barriers to entry and long term secular growth. MSG completed the separation of its associated regional sports networks in September 2015, leaving a reliable cash flow stream for MSG to reinvest and repurchase shares.

These evergreen content and venue assets benefit from sustainable barriers to entry and long term secular growth. We believe the now complete transformation project, the rising value of sports franchises (as demonstrated by the sale of the Clippers), and share repurchases, should dramatically increase MSG’s per share value.

John Rogers Comments on Madison Square Garden Co - Jan 22, 2016

In the last quarter of the year, we acquired two new securities in Ariel Fund. We gained a new position in integrated sports, entertainment and media business company The Madison Square Garden Co (NYSE:MSG) as it completed its spin-off from MSG Networks Inc (MSGN), the company that was formerly known as Madison Square Garden Co. We already held shares of the former Madison Square Garden, whose main business focuses on media as a regional sports network. Thenew Madison Square Garden’s business focuses on sports and entertainment with various sports teams and theaters as some of the brands under its belt.
