Comcast Corp., the nation's third-largest cable television operator, reported that its second-quarter profit dropped 77 percent but that its operating cash flow improved 32 percent. The company posted a net profit of $180.1 million, or 19 cents a diluted share, compared with $816.4 million, or $1.01 a share, in the second quarter of 1999. Comcast's operating cash flow rose to $602.8 million, a 32 percent increase from $457.3 million in the second quarter of 1999. Operating cash flow is the most important factor in assessing cable companies' performance, because swaps and acquisitions cause actual income to fluctuate so much.
