Guru Investment Theses on Viacom Inc

Mario Gabelli Comments on Viacom Inc. - Jul 27, 2016

Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ:VIA) (6.7%) (VIA – $46.42 – NASDAQ) is a pure-play content company that owns a global stable of cable networks, including MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, VH1, BET, and the Paramount movie studio. Viacom’s cable networks generate revenue from advertising sales, fixed monthly subscriber fees, and ancillary revenue from toy licensing, etc. We believe a low valuation and M&A potential outweigh the secular risks of cord-cutting.

Donald Yacktman Comments on Viacom - Nov 05, 2015

Viacom (NASDAQ:VIA), which also detracted from results in the third quarter, is not positioned as well as Fox in the changing environment. The company has struggled with significant viewer declines, as its content is more easily replaced by on-demand solutions. While risks of a changing media landscape are much more significant for Viacom versus Fox, the stock is remarkably inexpensive, trading at less than eight times normalized earnings. Despite its low valuation, the position remains small as a way of managing the uncertainty.
