Guru Investment Theses on The Madison Square Garden Co

Mario Gabelli Comments on Madison Square Garden Co. - Jul 26, 2016

Madison Square Garden Co. (NYSE:MSG)(0.9%) (MSG – $$172.51 – NYSE) is an integrated sports and entertainment company that owns the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The Forum, and that iconic New York venue, Madison Square Garden. These evergreen content and venue assets benefit from sustainable barriers to entry and long term secular growth. MSG completed the separation of its associated regional sports networks in September 2015, leaving a reliable cash flow stream for MSG to reinvest and repurchase shares.

From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s Gabelli Asset Fund second quarter 2016 commentary.

Madison Square Garden Co. (NYSE:MSG)(2.8%) (MSG – $166.36 – NYSE) is an integrated sports and entertainment company that owns the New York Knicks, the New York Rangers, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The Forum, and that iconic New York venue, Madison Square Garden. These evergreen content and venue assets benefit from sustainable barriers to entry and long term secular growth. We believe the now complete transformation project, the rising value of sports franchises (as demonstrated by the sale of the Clippers), and share repurchases, should dramatically increase MSG’s per share value.

John Rogers Comments on Madison Square Garden Co - Jan 22, 2016

In the last quarter of the year, we acquired two new securities in Ariel Fund. We gained a new position in integrated sports, entertainment and media business company The Madison Square Garden Co (NYSE:MSG) as it completed its spin-off from MSG Networks Inc (MSGN), the company that was formerly known as Madison Square Garden Co. We already held shares of the former Madison Square Garden, whose main business focuses on media as a regional sports network. Thenew Madison Square Garden’s business focuses on sports and entertainment with various sports teams and theaters as some of the brands under its belt.
