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.

First Eagle Comments on Comcast - Apr 24, 2018

Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) fell after the company announced a bid for Sky, a UK-based pay-TV company. Historically, Comcast has gener-ally focused on local US markets where it has scale advantages, so the bid for Sky raised questions about a possible shift in Comcast’s business strategy. On the other hand, the company is, potentially, a major beneficiary of the new tax law in the United States.
