Gabelli Asset Management Comments on CBS Corp

May 13, 2014 | About:

CBS Corp. (4.4%) (CBS)(CBS - $61.89 - NYSE) operates the CBS television network and the premium cable network Showtime, owns 29 local television stations and 130 radio stations, and is the third largest international outdoor advertising network. We believe CBS has a number of opportunities to generate incremental non-advertising revenue from the sale of existing content to online video distributors (OVDs) and the retransmission of content agreements with traditional distributors. In addition, we expect a continued recovery in advertising to contribute to earnings growth. Finally, we believe financial engineering, including the announced $3 billion share buyback and the expected split-off and REIT conversion of CBS Outdoor, could act as a catalyst for shares.

From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s Value 25 Fund first quarter 2014 shareholder commentary.
