Guru Investment Theses on The Madison Square Garden Co

Mario Gabelli Comments on Madison Square Garden Co. - Feb 10, 2016

Madison Square Garden Co. (2.7%) (MSG – $161.80 – NYSE) (NYSE:MSG) is an integrated sports and entertainment company that owns the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The Forum, and that iconic New York venue, Madison Square Garden. These evergreen content and venue assets benefit from sustainable barriers to entry and long term secular growth. We believe the now complete transformation project, the rising value of sports franchises (as demonstrated by the sale of the Clippers), and share repurchases, should dramatically increase MSG’s per share value.



From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s Value 25 Fund fourth quarter 2015 commentary.

John Rogers Comments on Madison Square Garden Co - Jan 22, 2016

In the last quarter of the year, we acquired two new securities in Ariel Fund. We gained a new position in integrated sports, entertainment and media business company The Madison Square Garden Co (NYSE:MSG) as it completed its spin-off from MSG Networks Inc (MSGN), the company that was formerly known as Madison Square Garden Co. We already held shares of the former Madison Square Garden, whose main business focuses on media as a regional sports network. Thenew Madison Square Garden’s business focuses on sports and entertainment with various sports teams and theaters as some of the brands under its belt.
