That's a bit of a misleading headline because it's over a number of years, not hust one year. In 2013, they were £308m. ($550m) Even if they doubled, that would still only be £600m. The company would be worth a multiple of profits, say 10 x profits. If profits were $1bn, the company could be worth $10bn subject to lots of other factors and caveats!

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

Even at £308m, £8billion is a pretty good deal. You'd pay £150k for a house that's going to bring in what, £6-8k a year?

Things to Remember

Generally a high P/E ratio means that investors are anticipating higher growth in the future.

The average market P/E ratio is 20-25 times earnings.

The P/E ratio can use estimated earnings to get the forward looking P/E ratio.

Companies that are losing money do not have a P/E ratio.

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

So if my rough calculations are correct, F1 has a P/E of about 26.5?

Seems like a good deal then.

It's a higher ratio than your house example and above average according to the link.

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

Yeah that's exactly what I am saying, at 2013 figures 8Bn is a great deal. If 2015 figures are higher, it's a steal.

Lower ratios are preferable as far as how good a deal a purchase price is. Your housing example gave a 'P/E ratio' of 25:1 to less than 19:1, while the numbers for F1 are a ratio >25:1.

It comes out every month.

There's no indication it will happen.

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

I feel like Virgin and Vodafone are the company equivelant to Ross and Rachel.

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

BT & Virgin Media join forces to battle Openreach split.
"The pair will this week launch their first-ever joint advertising campaign to defend Britain's record on internet infrastructure in the face of sustained attacks from Sky, TalkTalk and Vodafone."
"The cable operator fears its advantage and the return on its investment in expansion could be halted if Openreach is separated.
