Putting together my investment thesis on The Walt Disney Company

This is the final article in my series about The Walt Disney Company (DIS). Throughout this process, I’ve taken a detailed look at each of the company’s business segments. However, in order to truly appreciate what makes Disney unique, it’s critical to focus on the bigger picture as well.

The advantages that are created when the individual business segments come together as one was summarized by former CEO Bob Iger in early 2019, when he was asked by Barron’s about some of the acquisitions that had proved so critical to the company’s success. This was his response:

A look at the company's third quarter results

Fox Corporation (FOX), which was formed a year ago following The Walt Disney Company’s (DIS) acquisition of the majority of the assets owned by 21st Century Fox, recently reported results for its third quarter of fiscal 2020. For the quarter, revenues increased by 25% to $3.44 billion, largely due to the fact that Fox broadcasted Super Bowl 54. Adjusted for the big game, which added roughly $600 million in to the top-line, revenues increased by low-single digits in the quarter.

Growth in the quarter (excluding the impact of Super Bowl 54) was driven by affiliate fees,

Guru stock highlight

Fox’s (FOX)(FOXA) shares declined during the quarter as traditional media stocks struggled, in part due to near-term challenges in advertising. With most of the economy shut, there isn’t a compelling reason to air commercials on television. Fox’s main contributor to cash flow, Fox News, has produced strong viewership through the crisis and the company has one of the strongest balance sheets in the traditional media space, in part due to significant tax assets created as part of the Disney transaction, which closed in 2019.

ViacomCBS: a tough time to entertain

An aggressive strategy

In time of crisis, stock investors often fly to defensive stocks. These are companies that will do relatively well during a downturn.

However, using a defensive strategy now is like looking at your rearview window and using that view to decide where to turn next. It would be a great strategy if you executed it prior to the stock market's downturn, or at the very early stages of the crisis. However, it is a little late now because stocks have become more expensive again.

To take advantage of the crisis situation and recovery, I believe investors

Baupost leader is also seeking more capital

For the first time since 2011, billionaire investor Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) is seeking more capital for his hedge fund.

Having complained about the lack of bargains in the overvalued market for years, Bloomberg reported on Thursday that the value investor told clients that Baupost Group has spent about $1.5 billion on assets in recent weeks amid the carnage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The guru’s renewed bullish outlook is still in stark contrast to his fund’s performance, however, having posted losses amid the broader selloff. Bloomberg reported that a person familiar with the matter said the

Some thoughts on the media company's prospects and current valuation

Why I’m selling Fox

At the time of writing, I’m an investor in Fox (FOX) - but I think that is likely to change.

Before explaining why I’m likely to part ways with this investment, let me provide a bit of background. I first invested in 21st Century Fox in 2016. In late 2017, CNBC reported that The Walt Disney Company (DIS) was interested in acquiring a majority of the company's assets. Over the next year, Fox shareholders became the beneficiaries of a back and forth bidding war between Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney. When Disney ultimately emerged as the

Guru also gains position in ViacomCBS

Auxier Asset Management leader Jeff Auxier (Trades, Portfolio) released his fourth-quarter 2019 portfolio last week, listing six new holdings.

The guru’s Oregon-based firm seeks to invest in “compelling, undervalued” companies that have, among other attributes, strong or improving fundamentals, consistent operating results, a significant competitive advantage, understandable products and a demonstrated ability to earn a high return on capital.

With these criteria in mind, Auxier established positions in 58.com Inc. (WUBA), Fox Corp. (FOXA), Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW), Value Line Inc. (VALU) and Aon PLC (AON) during the quarter.

Some thoughts on the company's first-half 2020 results

Fox Corp. (FOX)(FOXA), which was formed in March 2019 following The Walt Disney Co.’s (DIS) acquisition of the majority of the assets owned by 21st Century Fox, recently reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020. For the quarter, revenue increased 5% to $3.8 billion. The gains in the period were largely driven by a 7% increase in affiliate fees, along with a 1% increase in advertising revenue despite tough comparisons in the year-ago period.

As shown below, the pace of affiliate fee growth accelerated sequentially from the 4% growth rate reported in the first quarter (in addition, as

Review of the most important items in the guru's letter to investors

CNBC got hold of a letter by billionaire hedge fund manager Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio). His letter to investors is typically extremely hard to get, but this is the second year in a row that I’ve seen it surface while Davos was going on.

In the letter, Klarman apparently defended value investing and attacked passive investing, which he believes is creating distortions. He’s certainly not alone in that belief. Murray Stahl (Trades, Portfolio) and Steven Bregman of Horizon Kinetics have been arguing
