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 Verizon Communications Inc

Bernard Horn Comments on Verizon Communications - Apr 21, 2017

Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) missed fourth quarter earnings estimates, as it added significantly fewer mobile subscribers, even after heavy price cuts and promotions. The company is slated to adopt unlimited data plans to meet competitive threats, which may further erode margins in the near-term. To reinvigorate business, Verizon approached Liberty Media about a merger with Liberty’s Charter Communications, which would create a behemoth with the biggest wireless and internet subscriber base, as well as the third largest television customer base.

From Bernard Horn (Trades, Portfolio)'s Polaris Global Fund first quarter 2017 shareholder letter.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Verizon Communications Inc. - Nov 02, 2016

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) (1.0%) (VZ $51.98 NYSE) is one of the world’s leading telecommunications services companies. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Verizon Wireless, is the largest mobile operator in the United States with over 113 million retail customers. On April 1, 2016, Verizon announced completion of the sale of its wireline assets in California, Florida, and Texas to Frontier Communications. The transaction is valued at approximately $10.5 billion (or approximately $7.5 billion net of taxes) and concentrates Verizon’s landline operations in contiguous Northeast markets. On July 25, 2016, building on its previous acquisition of AOL and launch of Go90 (mobile-first OTT video service), Verizon announced that it will acquire Yahoo! Inc.’s (0.4%) operating business for approximately $4.8 billion in cash. The deal is expected to close in 1Q’17. Verizon expects the acquisition of Yahoo’s operating business to accelerate its revenue stream in digital advertising and put the company in a highly competitive position as a “top global mobile media company.” This transaction significantly expands the scale of the company’s online content business and should allow VZ to leverage its ad-tech platform across a larger content portfolio and user base. In addition, Verizon expects that combining Yahoo with AOL will result in meaningful cost synergies.
