Company reports fourth-quarter earnings as US streaming wars pick up steam

Shares of Netflix Inc. (NFLX), a David Einhorn (Trades, Portfolio) short target, traded higher in post-market trading on Tuesday on the heels of reporting revenue and earnings that surpassed analyst estimates despite domestic subscription growth missing analyst expectations.

For the quarter ending December 2019, the Los Gatos, California-based company reported operating income of $459 million and $1.30 in net earnings per share, compared with operating income of $216 million and 30 cents in net earnings per share in the prior-year quarter. Revenue of $5.47 million outperformed the Refinitiv consensus estimate of $5.45 million.

Marv Levy, my favorite all-time football coach often said “When it’s too tough for them, it’s just right for us!” The Hall of Famer’s motivational saying didn’t get my beloved Buffalo Bills to the pinnacle of the NFL, but it’s the attitude our partnership takes when stock prices are falling, and a year ago we made two investments in great businesses when the market got “tough”.

In total, we had five main holdings which

While a moat does exist, we remain cautious about its long-term robustness

California-based Apple (AAPL) designs, manufactures and markets technology-driven premium electronics, including smartphones, computers, tablets and wearables, as well as provides related services. The company has undergone tremendous change since the launch of its first iPhone product in 2007 and became the first $1 trillion company in the U.S. in 2018.

Apple is a truly global business, with 45% of fiscal 2019’s sales coming from the Americas, 23% from Europe and 32% from the Asia Pacific. An economic moat does exist for Apple, largely due to its globally recognized brand. In 2019, Interbrand ranked Apple as the number one global brand,

And stay tuned for our 2020 picks

Over the past couple of years, we hve annually published our list of stock picks. These picks are purely based on our evaluation of business fundamentals, with no consideration in terms of valuation. As a result, they are theoretically for an ultra-long-term holding.

Despite the time horizon, we found it useful to conduct a performance check as an annual tradition to keep readers (and us) updated. So before we reveal our 2020 picks, here comes our annual review for 2019.

An analysis of which investing strategies were successful for the year and why

The S&P 500 returned an astonishing 31.49%% during 2019, which marked its best performance since 2013. Meanwhile, the HFRI Fund Weighted Composite Index returned 10.4%, its highest since 2009. The long bull market has made it more profitable for most investors to keep their money in passive market indexes than in actively managed funds, and for the fifth year in a row, the hedge fund industry has seen more closings than openings. As of Aug. 31, 2019, passively managed U.S. equity funds had $4.27 trillion in assets under management, surpassing the $4.25 million held in actively managed funds.

Guru stock highlight

Apple (AAPL) reported better growth than investors were expecting, as the Company’s foreign-exchange-neutral revenues in China recovered to positive growth. Apple’s shares finished substantially higher for the year, driven by earnings multiple expansion we believe to be related to expectations for the Company’s upcoming next-generation 5G product cycle. We trimmed our outsized Apple positions in order to fund new portfolio holdings, bringing our weighting to around 9%. Remarkably, the Russell 1000 Growth Index consists of over 500 holdings yet carries a weighting in Apple at over 8.5% (and about 4.5% in the S&P 500).

The company wants to be net-cash neutral, but relying on buybacks does not seem to be the best option

Apple Inc. (AAPL) is one of the most-followed stocks in the market today. According to Forbes, the company has an unmatched brand value among all corporations in the world and its products, as we all know, are of high quality. The launch of the first-ever iPhone in 2007 marked the beginning of a new growth phase for Apple, and the company has never looked back. Despite the mature nature of the company, Apple continued to grow in size over the last five years, supported by the increasing popularity of its wearables such as AirPods and the Apple Watch.

Some thoughts on price appreciation and share repurchases

Over the past year, Apple (AAPL) has been on an absolute tear. Since early 2019, the stock has more than doubled from ~$150 per share to ~$310 per share. As shown below, much of this appreciation has been attributable to an increase in the stock’s price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio.

Today, AAPL trades at roughly 23.7x consensus forward earnings of $13.1 per share for fiscal 2020. A year ago, the stock traded at roughly 12.9x forward earnings on fiscal 2019 (which ultimately came in at $11.9 per share). Said differently, about 10% of the increase over the past

Some thoughts on the book from Disney CEO Bob Iger

On Oct. 3, 2005, more than 30 years after he started as a studio supervisor for the American Broadcasting Co., Bob Iger became the sixth CEO in the history of The Walt Disney Co. (DIS). He succeeded Michael Eisner, who had been the CEO since 1984.

In the early 2000s, Disney had issues that needed to be addressed. As Iger noted in his book, “My first six months at Disney [which acquired Capital Cities / ABC for $19.5 billion] were the most dispiriting and unproductive of my career.” After years working with the legendary Tom Murphy and Dan Burke, he
