Guru Investment Theses on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc

Yacktman Fund Comments on Fox - Aug 15, 2017

After a strong first quarter, Fox (NASDAQ:FOX)’s shares retreated as the media sector fell out of favor due to renewed concerns over the declining number of pay-television subscribers. Over the last few years, Fox has struggled to handle industry challenges, currency issues, and less-than-stellar results at its network and film businesses. Due to the lack of recent business momentum, Fox’s shares have suffered from multiple contraction, while the market overall has seen significant multiple expansion. This leaves these shares very inexpensive in a world in which it remains difficult to find high quality at a low price.

We believe a significant part of Fox’s low valuation is due to the fact that it is managed for the long term by the Murdoch family, and the company is willing to make significant investments in the business, even though that might mean depressing short-term earnings. This approach has led to significant value creation over decades, but a low valuation today.

Many of our most successful investments over time are in companies like Fox, where significant assets are ignored when earnings are depressed. Over the next few years, we expect Fox’s sizable investments in India to produce substantial growth, which we think will help investors recognize some of the substantial value that we think is being overlooked today.

Yacktman Asset Management Comments on Fox - May 03, 2017

In the first quarter, Fox (NASDAQ:FOX)’s shares rose more than 15%. Fox News continued to post strong ratings even though viewership typically declines substantially after a presidential election. Tucker Carlson seamlessly replaced Megyn Kelly, who left for rival NBC, and his show achieved significantly stronger ratings than that of his predecessors. Fox continued its run of luck in sports, with a strong first-ever Super Bowl that went overtime (following an exceptional seven-game, extra-inning World Series final in the fall), and its film business had successes with Logan and HiddenFigures.

More importantly, we believe Fox continues to create substantial long-term value in its underappreciated overseas businesses. In the last three years, Fox has faced nearly a $1 billion earnings headwind from foreign currency moves, masking otherwise strong results from outside the United States.

Donald Yacktman Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox - Nov 05, 2015

We increased the Fund’s weightings in Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) and P&G during the quarter because we think their declines were overdone and more related to short-term sentiment issues than long-term value.

In August, the media sector experienced a full-fledged panic after Disney reported weaker subscriber numbers at its ESPN segment. While there are changes in the traditional U.S. media model, we think that Fox (NASDAQ:FOX) is extremely well positioned to navigate the challenges due to highly-rated content that benefits from live viewing (such as sports) along with a strong, growing international presence.

We think Fox is being penalized in the near term because the company has made significant investments which have impacted current earnings but will lead to longer-term growth. In the next 12 months, we expect to see strong profit margin recovery as many of the costs of these growth investments moderate. In addition, Fox has significant value in equity holdings which we think are largely being ignored at the current share price. Our penchant for long-term investing means that there are times when some of our favorite positions are out of favor, even when we think the long-term investment thesis is intact. In these circumstances, our response is often to increase the Fund’s weighting in these out-of-favor companies, a playbook we followed with Fox during the third quarter.
