Guru Investment Theses on Scripps Networks Interactive Inc

Mason Hawkins Comments on Scripps Networks Interactive Inc - Oct 20, 2014

We initiated four new positions in the quarter: McDonald’s Corporation, Scripps Networks Interactive, Vivendi, and one undisclosed name. Scripps (SNI), a multi-year holding in our Small-Cap Fund, owns various channels, including 100% of HGTV and 69% of The Food Network. Its market capitalization has grown enough for us to own this company in the Partners Fund, and our appraisal has kept pace so that the attractive discount remains.
