Guru Investment Theses on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc

Mario Gabelli Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc - Jul 30, 2014

Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (FOXA) (2.2%) (FOXA - $35.15 - NASDAQ; FOX - $34.23) is a diversified media company, with operations in cable network television, television broadcasting, filmed entertainment, and direct broadcast satellite television. Cable networks account for 66% of the company’s EBITDA and benefit from contractually recurring affiliate fees and exposure to the fast-growing global pay television market. We also expect the company to benefit from rising demand for premium content, driven by emerging distribution platforms such as Netflix, retransmission revenue, and aggressive share repurchases.

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc - Jul 25, 2014

We purchased shares of Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc., (FOXA) a global media content company that monetizes a variety of sports and general entertainment content via a number of different global channels including broadcast TV, cable TV and movies. Fox split from News Corp in 2013 making it a pure play TV and movie content company which we believe deserves a premium valuation due to its future growth prospects. Fox is well positioned to expand its sports and general entertainment content in the U.S. and in international markets which should lead to higher revenue growth and an increase in operating margins going forward. We also believe Fox’s management will be prudent with its capital allocation strategy and will use its free cash flow to repurchase shares and invest in secular growth opportunities.
