CVS, Nordstrom and AMC may present value opportunities as markets decline

The price-book ratio, which is the ratio of a company’s market cap to its net assets, is one measure that investors can use to determine whether or not a stock is fairly valued. In theory, it is what shareholders would receive if the company went bankrupt and its assets were liquidated, though in practice, factors such as intellectual property and lack of buyers for certain assets cannot be factored in.

However, unlike the price-earnings ratio, the price-book value is calculated even during periods when a company experiences a net loss. Thus, companies trading at their historical low price-book ratios can

Trading at a 5-year low is hard to believe on this one

It’s easy to understand why investors would want to stay away from this company’s stock. AMC Networks (AMCX) has opened the year down 4% versus the S&P 500’s strong 16% rise. In fact, over the last five years, even though the cable and entertainment network produced gains of 33% on the top line and 65% on the bottom, its stock lost more than 8% while the overall market is up over 50%.


That said, the company continues to be undervalued by the market. Despite the latest earnings report coming in strong with the company beating

The guru investor at Omega Advisors has close to 6% of his portfolio wrapped up in the stock

AMC Networks (AMCX) is in the right spot to benefit from a shift in digital content delivery with AMC Premiere and partnerships with applications that solicit consumers with cord cutting.

AMC Networks is an important cornerstone to many digital applications that show live television. Providers like Sling, FuboTV, YouTube and Playstation Vue all list AMC on their basic channel lineup. Thus, even if consumers switch from Sling to YouTube because one offers a better deal, AMC's content will still be consumed.

The company has also made a strong play to build its own subscribership with AMC Premiere, which is currently

One year later and the stock is flat, but the company continues to grow

Last August, I called for AMC Networks (AMCX) to double by 2021. Nothing has changed. Investors who haven’t been building a position in the stock over the last year can still get in at the same price. Since last year, the stock has gone down to the mid-$40s, back up to the mid-$60s, and has settled just above $60.

The stock is clearly undervalued. While the company has almost doubled its sales and profit over the last five years, it now trades below its historical price multiples across the board. It’s an incredible business, generating north of $500 million

Seeing original programming as the future, company increases content budget

Netflix Inc. (NFLX) reported its third-quarter earnings last week, beating subscriber growth expectations. The company added 5.3 million subscribers during the quarter compared to the consensus of 4.5 million. While Wall Street is fixated on the subscriber growth, the latest earnings report sheds light on several concerns.

First, Netflix is evolving into a content company. This puts pressure on the financing needs as well as margins. Second, entering digital distribution is not very difficult, which is paving the way for new streaming players. This will result in content being offered though several platforms, pressurizing Netflix's distribution moat.

The focus on content and digital along with cheap valuation makes the company a decent pick for value-oriented portfolios

The general perception about media companies is that their fates are tied to the traditional, or linear, TV. This sentiment is not accurate. Not all media companies are affected by the linear TV industry. On the distribution side, companies will face headwinds when linear TV goes south, but content creators and networks can simply adjust their distribution strategy.

The point of mentioning all this is that this perception is keeping the price of some good media networks in check, which creates several decent value opportunities in the space. AMC Networks (AMCX) is among the media companies that are trading on
