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.

Sprint Corp is a communications company offering wireless and wireline communications products and services. It offers products and services to individual consumers, businesses, government subscribers and resellers.

Sprint is the fourth-largest carrier in the United States, serving 44 million connections directly and 16 million via wholesale. About 6% of sales come from the wireline unit, which provides fixed-line phone and data services, including services provided to the wireless unit. The firm acquired Clearwire, a troubled firm with a large spectrum portfolio, in 2013. Shortly thereafter, Japanese telecom Softbank took a 78% stake in Sprint through the purchase of existing Sprint shares and a $5 billion equity infusion; it has since increased its stake to 83%.

Guru Investment Theses on Sprint Corp

Daniel Loeb Comments on Sprint - Nov 02, 2016

Sprint (NYSE:S) has been another of our best performing investments this year. We were able to initiate our position at an attractive entry point in Q1 amidst the energy-driven dislocation in the credit markets and after the bonds were downgraded in February over concerns about Sprint’s near-term corporate debt maturities. We believed we were protected on the downside since the company has minimal outstanding senior or secured facilities and could likely issue new bonds higher in the corporate capital structure to refinance the pending maturities. The company is also continuing to improve its business by strengthening the network in key areas, growing the subscriber base, opportunistically incorporating strategic partnerships, and executing an attractive cost of capital cycle.



From Third Point's third-quarter 2016 commentary.
