  • ... move it earning announcement date to coincide with DIS. Once again DIS's earnings is directly influencing the perception of CBS's earnings. CBS suffers a double whammy, getting clobbered from the effect of peer competitors, and then a couple days later, potentially sliding again on its own merit. Should we hit $40 today, we will have dropped 20 percent from the high of $50.32, the day that Redstone resigned and Les was designated to become the new CEO. Is it possible that we will suffer the same fate as VIAB? That would be a total disaster, although VIAB's problem appears to be a convoluted internal struggle.

    Another downward spiral

    by davidfheckman Feb 8, 2016 11:54 AM

    Invest in the company through the stock; if your worried simply about the stock price, with no faith in the company's plan, move you money elsewhere.

    There's been a lot of news with CBS, a lot of hints at what could be the future of CBS and, though I'm not currently invested in the company, I'm far more curious and interested now (Moonves as CEO/Chairman of CBS, the hints towards a complete break from Viacom, renewed focus in leveraging CBS/Showtme content through their All Access digital platform, doubling down on the expansion of sports content with SEC Footbal, the NCAA Basketball tournament, and the likely home for the Premier Boxing Champions franchise, etc).

    There's a lot of things in flux now but, if you believe in the company, I'd use this current dip to average down your position (or add to it, depending on when you got into the stock); with this downturn also having the benefit of driving yields up a bit, it makes things even more favorable for interested folks to jump in. gl

  • WARNING: ladies, the CONSOLIDATION BASE is now FINALLY ESTABLISHED in the RADICALLY UNDERVALUED and! MEGA BULLISH CBS!!!

    should be the start of GAP UP MOVES into the close of the year, one that could see CBS reach the SUPER BULL market TARGET PRICE of 125 or HIGHER by close of the year!!!!

    In the past, CBS has been THE weakest stock in my near PERFECT portfolio......and it behaved like a dying turtle compared to my superior picks such as AMZN, NFLX, APPL, GOOG, PCLN, FB, LNKD, TSLA, Starbucks, etc. I should have done better due diligence into the CBS sub-performer..... but NOW it is poised to GAP UP REPEATEDLy into the close of the year....and CBS in the money CALL options should SKYROCKET in value, gains of THOUSANDS of percent!!! MEGA BULLISH!!!

    REVISED price target = 132 or HIGHER by close of the year!!!! MEGA BULLISH!

  • Full disclosure: I do not currently own a stake in CBS (just beginning my due diligence, though the low dividend yield immediately sticks out).

    With live sports content seeming to be the revenue driver for most revenue growth, and CBS already doing very well with their sitcoms and dramas, CBS would seem to need to acquire more sports content, at costs that aren't so prohibitive.

    Premier Boxing Champions, an effort to return top-flight boxing to the national audience, is currently in it's second year of this introductory effort. With broadcasts across CBS/NBC/FOX/ on terrestrial TV, and ESPN/SpikeTV/NBCSN/FS1/etc on cable, in primetime and afternoons on various days during the drink, the initial results are that there just may be a market for boxing that can grow.

    ~2.5m viewers in primtime and ~1.5m viewers in the afternoon on terrestrial TV, 1m-~1.5m viewers on cable, etc. In Yr1, PBC put on ~40 broadcasts.

    Football season (Aug-Jan) fills in CBS's calendar well, but the rest of the year, sports content is lacking. With CBS needing content to fill in non-football (and CBS Sports Network needing content, period), 40 nights of boxing would be interesting for CBS to have, I'd think; 10 shows on Saturday nights in primetime, 15 shows on Saturday afternoons, and 10 shows for CBS Sports Network to build on (with support programming for everything on CBS Sports Network). Beyond that, with Showtime also under the same CBS banner, CBS would have an additional vehicle to monetize the biggest matchups that they'd get.

    No idea what such an acquisition/content purchase would be worth, but is the idea sound enough?

  • Trump to play The Billionaire on Gilligan's Island remake.
    Sarah to play Eunice Wentworth "Lovey" Howell, the Billionaire's ho.
    Carly F. as Ginger.
    Ronald Reagan as the Skipper (using old footage and computer graphics),
    A surprise new character will be Bonzo the Republican Chimp, played by Dubya.

    Naturally Jeb! is Gilligan.

  • Sumner no longer is actively involved in the decision making process and has not been for more than a year. In the mean time CBS continues to pay him for doing nothing. That's my view....am I wrong?

  • Green trading action in CBS, IGNORING the CONTRIVED downturn in the Dow/Nasdaq, IS MEGA-BULLISH and PROVES WITHOUT DOUBT that its CONSOLIDATION BOTTOM has been reached, and now the HUGELY UNDERVALUED stock MUST GAP UP repeatedly into close of the year.

    REVISED price target = 95 or HIGHER by close of JAN 2016 and CBS in the money CALL options will SKYROCKET in value!!!!!!!!

  • CBS is the cheapest media stock out there with a .87 PEG Ratio and their Price Target is $66 - $20 higher than today's closing price. The chart shows initial support in the $45 area, so we are very close to that level. A break below means we're headed to $40. I would look to accumulate more shares if we drop to the $40 area. There is major support at $40. CBS should do well with the election coming up as political ad revenue will drive earnings higher.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Increase the dividend to 20 or 25 cents.

  • CBS is THE weakest stock in my near PERFECT portfolio......and it behaves like a dying turtle compared to my superior picks such as AMZN, NFLX, APPL, GOOG, PCLN, FB, LNKD, TSLA, Starbucks, etc. I should have done better due diligence into the CBS sub-performer..... if I had better examined the background and stunning incompetence of its exec bozo, Moonves, I would never have touched CBS with a million foot pole.

    Let me ask this question again, as a proven trading GENIUS whose stock portfolio is SECOND TO NONE, having provided returns in the HUNDREDS and THOUSANDS of percent over the past FOUR YEARS....yet whose one stock laggard happens to be this CBS slug.......I want to understand even ONE reason why this overhyped, overpaid, and over-esteemed Les Moonves PIG FARMER sustains MONEY LOSING PIG FARMS like the WORTHLESS Last.FM, given that it LOSES some FOUR MILLION DOLLARS per year....year after year???????? Duuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh???? There is NO better example of the lamebrain PIG FARMER methods of running a major corp..... and please do tell....is Moonves sleeping with the key execs of Last.FM PIG FARM???? I mean, by what rationale does any LOGICAL corp sustain MONEY LOSING divisions, year after year after year????? Girls, there are REAL compelling reasons why CBS Corp is my WORST under-performer in my near PERFECT portfolio....and even my brilliant short and PUT positions (in BEAR mkt trash such as golds/silvers/commodity currencies, rare earths, etc) are far far far far far outperforming my CBS long position....so, in my mind, Last.FM is the metaphor for all the BRAIN DEAD decisions of this Moonves bozo.

    I would advise the Moonves boobster be fired, except his UNDESERVED golden parachute would cost CBS approx. $250 million or probably the cumulative amount lost to date in operating Last.FM!!!!! ROFLMAO
