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 MSG Networks Inc

John Rogers Comments on MSG Networks - Jan 17, 2019

MSG Networks, Inc. (NYSE:MSGN) engages in sports production, content development, and distribution. Its shares fell -8.68% during the quarter despite reporting better than expected results—with subscription deceleration likely weighing on its stock price. Although the actual rate of decline was the second-slowest since MSGN became a standalone company, cable providers are not eager to pay MSGN premium prices. Additionally, the company’s Chairman is widely believed to be open to selling the business. As a result, MSGN’s share price thrashes in reaction to the evolving headlines surrounding Disney’s disposition of the regional sports networks that accompanied the Fox acquisition. Ultimately, we still believe in the power of live sports and like MSGN’s strong cash flow-generating characteristics.
