Scripps Networks Interactive Inc is a vertically integrated content company operating six domestic cable channels. The firm operates the Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, and others. It is a developer of lifestyle-oriented content.

Scripps is a vertically integrated content company that operates six domestic cable channels and owns 98% of the content that airs on its channels. Spun off from E.W. Scripps in 2008, Scripps' three largest networks (Food Network, HGTV, and Travel Channel) reach over 90 million households subscribing to basic cable in the U.S. While two (HGTV and Food Network) networks regularly rank within the top 25 networks in the U.S., Scripps has very little exposure to international markets with only 3% of revenue earned from outside the U.S.

Guru Investment Theses on Scripps Networks Interactive Inc

Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund Comments on Scripps Networks - Feb 22, 2017

Scripps Networks (NASDAQ:SNI) (+31%,+1.51%), the media company whose three main brands are HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel, had solid advertising revenue gains during the year, and the stock continued its rise in the fourth quarter, gaining 13%. Ratings were strong overall in 2016, and HGTV ended up as the third most watched U.S. cable channel behind ESPN and Fox News. The company’s advertising has more exposure to stable categories than most competitors and also earns premiums per viewer over the competition. The year did see a decline in distributor fees paid to Scripps, but this was due to one-time items that will be lapped next year. Part of the stock’s discount is related to international expansion which has not yet produced profits but has created startup costs and non-cash amortization. Scripps’ high-profile lifestyle channels could be valuable content for other media and entertainment companies, as evidenced by AT&T’s recent bid for Time Warner at an attractive multiple relative to Scripps’ stock price.
