KEELEY Small Cap Dividend Value Fund Comments on World Wrestling Entertainment - Jul 30, 2014

In that sector, one name specifically, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), was the key holding that negatively impacted our performance in this sector. The stock declined over 58 percent and cost the Fund 70 basis points of return during the quarter. Shares of the entertainment company dropped sharply in May after investors became concerned over the terms of their new multi-year TV contract with NBCUniversal. Additionally, subscriptions to their WW Network, launched in February of 2014, have been below expectations.

From John Keeley (Trades, Portfolio)’s KEELEY Small Cap Dividend Value Fund Second Quarter 2014 Commentary.
