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•

Mario Gabelli Comments on Time Warner - May 09, 2017

Time Warner Inc. (2.5%) (TWX – $96.53 – NYSE) (NYSE:TWX), located in New York, New York, is a diversified media company with operations in cable networks through HBO, TNT, TBS & CNN, and film & television production. We like the company’s cable networks, high margins and low capital intensity. We believe the AT&T-Time Warner transaction will close, and expect limited downside were the government to block the deal.
