GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

Financial Strength

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.

Baron Funds Comments on comScore Inc. - Feb 25, 2016

comScore, Inc. (SCOR) is a leader in digital media measurement. The company recently announced the acquisition of Rentrak, a real-time video measurement platform. We expect the merger to be approved shortly, and we believe that the combined company should be well positioned to provide the broader media industry cross channel audience measurement tools. We believe that cross media measurement and more precise video based measurement allow the company to provide new products for which there is significant demand among customers. The combination of Rentrak and comScore should allow the combined companies to grow at a faster rate than they would stand alone, and drive higher margins over time.
