Guru Investment Theses on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc

Donald Yacktman Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox - Nov 05, 2015

We increased the Fund’s weightings in Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) and P&G during the quarter because we think their declines were overdone and more related to short-term sentiment issues than long-term value.

In August, the media sector experienced a full-fledged panic after Disney reported weaker subscriber numbers at its ESPN segment. While there are changes in the traditional U.S. media model, we think that Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) is extremely well positioned to navigate the challenges due to highly-rated content that benefits from live viewing (such as sports) along with a strong, growing international presence.

We think Fox is being penalized in the near term because the company has made significant investments which have impacted current earnings but will lead to longer-term growth. In the next 12 months, we expect to see strong profit margin recovery as many of the costs of these growth investments moderate. In addition, Fox has significant value in equity holdings which we think are largely being ignored at the current share price. Our penchant for long-term investing means that there are times when some of our favorite positions are out of favor, even when we think the long-term investment thesis is intact. In these circumstances, our response is often to increase the Fund’s weighting in these out-of-favor companies, a playbook we followed with Fox during the third quarter.

From Donald Yacktman (Trades, Portfolio)'s third quarter 2015 commentary.

Donald Yacktman Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. - Aug 06, 2015

During the second quarter, some of the largest detractors included Fox (FOX), P&G (PG), and Samsung (XKRX:005935), which are among our high conviction long-term investments. We think these investments all offer significant long-term value despite their recent unpopularity.



Fox (FOX) remains one of our favorite holdings despite pulling back in the second quarter. Recently, Fox announced a series of management changes, appointing James Murdoch as Chief Executive Officer of the company with Rupert Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch being named Co-Executive Chairmen. We believe James is a talented leader. He previously was Chief Executive Officer of BSkyB for several years, and has been extensively involved in Fox’s operations for nearly two decades. James takes the Chief Executive Officer title from his father, Rupert, who has been running the business and its predecessors for a remarkable 60+ years.



We believe Fox is extremely well-positioned for significant growth in earnings-per-share over the next several years. We think the company is getting little credit for several of its recent investments, including its strong market position in India, where the company has nearly 25% of the television viewing audience. The business in India is running near break-even, as costs are high in the short-term due to one-off expenses like World Cup cricket rights and the build-out of a mobile platform. Domestically, Fox is making investments to create new channels like Fox Sports 1 and to turn around the Fox Broadcasting Network, which has suffered from weak ratings recently. The expenses associated with the investments will decline over time, and we expect profit margins to rebound while the company achieves solid revenue growth and free cash flow.



Fox is in the “penalty box” because the company is trading potentially higher current profits for far greater value in the future. This is exactly the way we like to see our businesses managed. However, the stock market currently favors companies that are maximizing profits today and penalizing those willing to invest for the future. We think this will set Fox up for strong outperformance over time and believe our patience will be richly rewarded.
