Guru Investment Theses on Discovery Communications Inc

Wallace Weitz Comments on Discovery Communications - Jan 22, 2016

Discovery Communications (NASDAQ:DISCA) is a leading provider of pay-TV programming with an emphasis on lower-cost, fully-owned, nonfiction content that appeals to global audiences. Despite positive business developments through 2015, shares of Discovery and other media stocks generally suffered as investors became more skeptical of traditional pay-TV’s staying power. Modest subscriber declines reported by cable and satellite TV providers in addition to falling ratings through 2015 led many to conclude that the whole pay-TV ecosystem was unravelling in an accelerating fashion. Exacerbating the perception problem for Discovery was the strength of the US dollar, which muted continued strong growth in the company’s strategic portfolio of international channels. Although the traditional video bundle may get “skinnier,” we believe that the traditional cable system will continue to persist and that Discovery’s content remains a “must have” for subscribers. The company’s ownership of its content also affords it the flexibility to begin offering it directly (via mobile apps), a recent industry trend. From today’s price, we believe the stock has above average return potential.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Discovery Communications - Oct 27, 2015

Discovery Communications (NASDAQ:DISCA) is a leading provider of Pay-TV programming with an emphasis on lower cost, fully owned, non-fiction content that appeals to passionate global audiences. The company’s shares have declined due to earnings headwinds from moderating international growth, negative currency impacts on reported results and the well-chronicled challenges for domestic television advertising. More importantly, multiples for media content companies have compressed significantly due to longer-term concerns about the health of the ad -supported, Pay-TV ecosystem. Discovery has several unique advantages, starting with its robust and growing content library and its unmatched international footprint. Strong capital allocation also has been a Discovery hallmark and will be increasingly important over the next several years. The company recently laid out a three-year roadmap that we think is realistic and reflects the challenges ahead. From today’s price the stock has above average return potential, as the company executes on its achievable stated plans.

Who's the Most Overpaid CEO? Should you judge on an absolute basis or by performance?
In my last post, I wrote about Robert Half International (NYSE:RHI), which I think is a quality company. During my research, I noticed that the CEO’s pay seemed to be quite high. I then benchmarked Robert Half CEO’s pay against one of its competitors, Kforce (NASDAQ:KFRC). What I found made my jaw drop. According to Morningstar, Kforce’s CEO made $13.75 million in 2015. When I compared that against the company’s results, it shows that the CEO made 32% of 2015 net income. Read more...
