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 CBS Corp

Mario Gabelli Comments on CBS Corp - Aug 30, 2018

CBS Corp. (NYSE:CBS) (6.9%) (CBS – $56.64 – NYSE) operates the CBS television network and the premium cable network Showtime. It also owns 29 local television stations and 130 radio stations. We believe that CBS has a number of opportunities to generate incremental non-advertising revenue from the sale of existing content through its OTT platforms, online video distributors and retransmission agreements with traditional distributors. In addition, we expect a continued recovery in advertising to contribute to earnings growth. Finally, we believe a combination with Viacom could act as a catalyst.

From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s Value 25 Fund second-quarter 2018 shareholder letter.

Ariel Funds Comments on CBS Corp - Jul 19, 2018

During the quarter, we initiated a position in CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS), a leading entertainment company that is also held within Ariel Appreciation Fund. With its collection of valued media assets, growing retransmission fees for the right to carry the CBS signal, reverse compensation from its affiliates, video streaming deals, political advertising revenues, strong balance sheet, solid free cash flow generation and a seasoned management team focused on return on investment, we believe CBS is well positioned for continued growth.
