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 Viacom Inc

Mario Gabelli Comments on Viacom Inc. - May 09, 2017

Viacom Inc.(5.7%)(VIA–$38.50–NASDAQ)(NASDAQ:VIA) is a pure-play content company that owns a global stable of cable networks, including MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, VH1, BET, and the Paramount movie studio. Viacom’s cable networks generate revenue from advertising sales, fixed monthly subscriber fees, and ancillary revenue from toy licensing, etc. We believe a low valuation and M&A potential outweigh the secular risks of cord-cutting.

Donald Yacktman Comments on Viacom - Nov 05, 2015

Viacom (NASDAQ:VIA), which also detracted from results in the third quarter, is not positioned as well as Fox in the changing environment. The company has struggled with significant viewer declines, as its content is more easily replaced by on-demand solutions. While risks of a changing media landscape are much more significant for Viacom versus Fox, the stock is remarkably inexpensive, trading at less than eight times normalized earnings. Despite its low valuation, the position remains small as a way of managing the uncertainty.

John Rogers Comments on Viacom Inc. Guru stock highlight
Also detracting from performance was multinational media conglomerate Viacom, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIAB), which saw its shares fall -27.59% during the period. The company reported adjusted EPS of $0.79 vs. consensus of $0.59, with revenues up +8% year-over-year. Despite the positive news, investors remain wary of the company’s ability to execute its strategic plan, as changing media consumption patterns and technology create more general concerns about the cable business model. Nevertheless, Viacom is the owner of valuable content, including children’s programming and comedy, and a leading movie production franchise with more than 3,300 motion pictures in its library. Despite critics’ arguments that fundamentals will remain negative at those media network companies serving kids and teens and at those lacking live sports programming, we believe Viacom’s content will provide attractive economics regardless of the distribution medium.
