Guru stock highlight

Our position in Blucora (NASDAQ:BCOR) takes the form of convertible bonds that mature in April 2019. The bonds pay us 4.25% interest, but include a convertibility function that allows us the option to convert into common shares at a premium to today’s price. This particular investment is one that we would categorize as low risk / low reward, but there is a possibility that the reward could turn out to be much better than that. Blucora’s primary asset is TaxAct, which is an online tax return business that competes with Quicken’s TurboTax and similar services. The company

That the media and cable landscape is changing is admittedly nothing new, with mergers and licensing agreements occurring among industry giants like Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC), Comcast Corporation (CMCSA)Â and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (FOXA). However, it’s not only the industry giants that are scaling their options to continue gaining profits. The somewhat smaller, niche content pay TV player Discovery Communications (DISCA) has also displayed several changes over the past quarter and they seem to have been successful, as earnings per share saw a solid increase, closing the fiscal year at $2.97, up 25.6% year over year.

Blucora (BCOR) is a company that fits within our basket of "special situation" investments, securities whose underlying dynamics do not easily lend themselves to conventional analysis. Although it was a fairly well-known company in prior years under its former name InfoSpace, today it largely flies under the radar of Wall Street investors and analysts (in part due to the June 2012 name change) and in some respects,we believe, is misunderstood. InfoSpace saw revenues grow by more than 50%compared with 2011. With TaxACT, the business continues to benefit from the ongoing migration of tax preparation away from paper and professionally-prepared filings
