Guru Investment Theses on Liberty Media Group

Wallace Weitz Comments on Liberty Media - Jan 22, 2016

Liberty Media (NASDAQ:LMCA) owns interests in subsidiaries and other companies that are engaged in the media, communications and entertainment industries. Liberty Media’s principal asset, SiriusXM, posted terrific results this year, as the combination of strong new car sales and solid traction with its used car sales channels led to consistently better-than-expected results. In mid-November, Liberty Media announced a plan to recapitalize the company into three tracking stocks: Liberty Sirius Group (tracking LMCK’s 61% ownership of SIRI), Liberty Braves Group (tracking the Atlanta Braves baseball club including the associated real estate developments surrounding the new stadium) and “new” Liberty Media Group (principally Live Nation and assorted smaller investments). We view the creation of these new tracking stocks positively, as it will afford investors greater clarity into Liberty’s collection of assets and, hopefully, help narrow the gap between Liberty Media’s current stock price and our estimate of business value.

From Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s fourth quarter 2015 Partners Value Fund commentary.
