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 comScore Inc

Baron Funds Comments on comScore Inc. - May 06, 2016

comScore, Inc. (SCOR) recently closed on a merger with Rentrak, a video measurement company with the largest pool of set top box data for TV viewing. The combined company is building products that will allow advertisers and media companies to more accurately measure consumption across devices and channels. In a world where the average U.S. household has more than 8 connected devices, demand for a total media measurement product is extreme. We expect comScore to leverage its big data expertise on digital combined with mobile and TV panels to build a total audience product that is well accepted with advertisers, while being more reasonably priced than Nielsen’s potential competitive solution. We expect that recent partnerships with Adobe and Facebook, along with the work the company is doing on building a large mobile router panel, should differentiate their products in the marketplace. As media fragmentation continues across new and emerging digital formats, we expect ComScore to build a substantially larger measurement and attribution business going forward.
