    • I would hang on to this one. Political revenue -- easy money for radio stocks -- and the holiday season are all pointing positive. This is a also a 14 week quarter -- it happens about once every seven years. That means an extra week of revenue for broadcast stocks. Beware -- the first quarter of 07 - is a 12 week quarter. Christmas falling on a weekend also helps. That give businesses a chance to advertise for one full week before and after the 25th. Advertisers tend to shy away from spending during Christmas week if their stores are closed on a weekday. I think this one still has some room to move higher.

      Another little known fact -- some of their properties may be for sale. Put all of this together and this stock is cheap -- temporarily.

      • terry100000 - Political revenue and Christmas falling on a weekend could certainly be of benefit to SGA and radio in general - good points. But, while radio sales works on a Broadcast Month, most radio companies report revenues and earnings on a Calendar Month/Quarter - SGA included. In fact, the first week of the current Broadcast Quarter was 9/25 - 10/1...SGA has already reported earnings for the period ending 9/30. So, the 14 weeek broadcast quarter has no bearing on this or any radio stock.

        With that said, I too believe this stock is very undervalued. What gets the market to move on SGA? I think strong 4th Qtr revenue growth would be a start. I also believe the Clear Channel spin off of 448 smaller market stations will give Wall Street a good benchmark for which they can determine the true value of SGA's assets.
