It continues to be in a turnaround situation where there is plenty of upside as they improve things. She thinks there are a few more years and then you still hold it long term. The assets are every valuable and they have been just struggling with management.

“Cord cutting” has affected every media company that traditionally made its money over cable. Consumers are going to get their content in a myriad of other ways, and are not going to buy cable packages that supported a lot of channels that individually people would not have chosen.

Media stocks have been decimated. Everybody was excited about mergers that were going to happen, but that didn’t happen. One of the reasons could be advertising and people worried about a slowdown. Very cheap valuation. Smart management.

Keeps reading that the parts are worth more than the current whole put together and that there may be a split. If so, the net asset value is a good healthy 20/30% above the stock price. Hasn't fully investigated this, so do your own research.

The big media companies are out of favour, so they bought them as contrarian holdings. In the process of restructuring. The assets would be worth a lot more sold than the company is as an operation.
