John Rogers Comments on Meredith Corp.

Magazine publisher Meredith Corp. (MDP) soared +25.91% due to an earnings beat. Specifically, the company reported adjusted EPS of $0.72 versus consensus of $0.68. Revenues climbed 7% to $370 million, topping estimates of $355 million. A primary driver of results was advertising revenues—both national and local advertising increased substantially. In addition, the company brought down net debt from $340 million at the beginning of the year to $331 million as of the earnings announcement on April 25th. We believe the company has traversed a tricky landscape well over the last few years, sticking to its core competencies and smartly improving its already solid balance sheet.
