The key things to look for in an income statement while doing News Corp stock analysis are:

  • Topline: A growing topline, as seen from the News Corp revenue chart, as isn't the case with News Corp indicates a sagging business. One needs to compare the YoY topline or sales growth of NWS stock with its peers like FOX stock and IQ stock to see if the growth compares well with what can be expected from a company in that industry.
  • Bottom line: Most businesses like News Corp try to grow their profits by growing their topline and by increasing their operating efficiency. A healthy bottom line growth implies a good investment.

The income statement is also called the profit and loss statement. Apart from the NWS income statement, one can check the News Corp historical stock prices to check how the price has moved with time.
