Guru Investment Theses on Comcast Corp

Wallace Weitz Comments on Comcast - Apr 22, 2016

Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is the largest operator of cable delivered Broadband and Pay-TV service in the United States and, through its NBC Universal subsidiary, is a global entertainment company. After abandoning its bid to acquire Time Warner Cable, Comcast has refocused on execution in its core cable business–investing in higher broadband speeds and introducing a new best-in-class user interface for its Pay-TV customers (dubbed X1). The Company is aggressively rolling out X1 across its footprint, driving higher customer satisfaction and improved customer retention. At NBC Universal, results continue to positively surprise investors thanks to box office hits like Jurassic World, and new attractions like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter driving record attendance at its theme parks. Despite investor concerns over “cord cutters” and “skinny bundles,” we believe the Pay-TV business is more resilient than feared, and thanks to its position in broadband and content, Comcast is well positioned for the future.

Paul Singer Acquires Stake in Comcast Software company, Irish airline among hedge fund manager's second-quarter purchases

Even so, he has a reputation as an activist when it comes to underperforming companies, which makes his quarterly purchases of special interest, and some of his second-quarter acquisitions were considerable.
