Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

As one of China's three largest state-owned carriers, China Southern flies to more than 200 destinations and 40 countries. The airline operates a hub-and-spoke system, where it gathers and distributes passengers through key airports in Guangzhou. The carrier generates less than 10% of revenue from premium class tickets, the lowest percentage among the Big Three (Air China, China Southern, and China Eastern). As a result of rising competition on the international front, China Southern currently derives the majority of its profits from its domestic service.
