TWC Revenue

There is not enough fundamental data available to properly evaluate this company at this time.

TWC Cash Earnings

Price to Cash Earnings analysis is inappropriate for this company due to an insufficient positive cash earnings history. Rather than calculating a potentially misleading Price to Cash Earnings analysis, we have chosen to give TWC a neutral Price to Cash Earnings outlook at this time. However, we should point out that this metric is a significant element in Ockham’s methodology to analyzing the outlook for any company. Therefore, for TWC, our assessment is now more dependent on the Price to Sales analysis, and investors should be cautious with a company with very limited, if any, positive cash earnings.

TWC Dividends

When determining a company's future prospects for success, Ockham Research sees analysis of dividend payments as a key additional factor. Even though it isn't imperative for TWC to shell out a dividend in order to receive a positive rating, it can be helpful to further our analysis. TWC is not paying a dividend at this time, nor do they have a history of paying a dividend for the last 10 years plus. Therefore, we are not utilizing the dividends portion in our study. If TWC initiates paying a dividend, we will begin to factor this into the Ockham approach.
