    What is going on?

    Why is this stock going down? Should we hold or get out? I believe there is a future, but I can see this stock head to where it was a year ago. Please advise.

    • It is probably because S&P was never very good at predicting EVC and also because EVC has transformed into a no surprises stable grower without any risks in the cost structure or debt financing or content programming. EVC has simply become a revenue growth story. And we know what portion of the population is growing in both numbers and wealth.

      Since Univision took the #1 US ratings spot for the first time recently I haven't had any concerns about EVC making us a lot of money.

      Listen to the recent presentations by the CFO -- I think the Q4 comments were particularly strong.

      Historically, S&P's EVC target jumped around in an almost embarrassing way. It may have been covered by a junior analyst. In the end S&P was more conservative and did not seem to recognize the power of EVC's growth segment in its relative valuation against competitors.

      I am not sorry to see S&P go away, and it will raise the average analyst target.

    • Entravision Communications benefits from growth opportunities within the Hispanic population of the United States. Already the nation's largest minority group, the Latino population is growing about 8 times faster than the rest of the U.S. population. However, we think Entravision's heavy debt burden will eventually make its equity worthless.

      • I remember, that was from one of those mindless sensational "click on me" articles a long time back.

        I guess they were proved wrong since EVC manage to tame their debt with a well placed very long term (2017) bond issue. They even have significant cash now. Appararently bond holders think they are quite viable.

        What a difference a year makes.

        Expenses are mostly set in stone for years. No unknowns. No uncertainty. But onward and upward goes their revenue...

        Univision is #1. Advertisers will return to this, the only strong growth demo.

    • What you talkin about? Was just a short lived chance to buy a few shares.

      No risk here. All is fine. Everything is long term -- financing, content contracts, re-trans all set in stone for many many years. They have cash and they are 100% certifiably viable. What will change is their revenue. It should grow. A lot.

      Listen to the last call. EVC is a buy. Should move very nicely here on. Their demo is good, Demo growth is good, ratings are good (univision was number 1 network in US for the first time), very effective media not fragmented like english media. They were really bullish on Q4 revenue growth too.
