    I like FOX but .........

    how can FOX be so undervalued if the p/e is 125.

    Is 125 low for a media company????

    any info on would be much appreciated.....

    • If NWS gets written up in Newsweek as a big
      winner but all (or most) of the examples are FOX
      Entertainment items.... then why
      is NWS up so big and FOX
      lagging?

      Is the money flowing into NWS instead of FOX..is
      there confusion. Seems really odd that a Newsweek
      article would portray/confuse the issue like
      this.

      I must admit.. Im here for Star Wars hype. I did my
      DD (or what I thought was DD) in late 98 and believe
      in this and HAS. HAS followed the expected hype. But
      so did NWS!!! FOX..well we all know this
      story.

      Are we long in the wrong symbol?

      Thanks for
      thoughtful replys.

    • the article is about News Corp. The chart is for
      the symbol NWS (which isn't noted). NWS owns (please
      correct me if wrong) about 80% of FOX. FOX is only (one
      of) the entertainment (studio, network, sports, etc.)
      parts of NWS, not the news or new media divisions.

    • Man this sucker should be around 40 I am getting ready to bail and go make some money.
      This sucker sucks

    • Did anyone else read the Newsweek article this
      week on FOX?
      7/12/99 issue.

      really
      positve...one question though...
      what stock symbol are they
      showing on the graph on page 41?
      Certainly not
      FOX.

      Why has FOX not shown that same momentum if the
      article is on target?

      Thanks.

    • was getting ready to dump last week in
      frustration

      glad I didnt, today's intraday chart is about the most
      promising thing Ive seen in a couple months with
      FOX..anyone know whats going on?

      hopefully FOX will
      start to actually hang on to some of these gains
      instead of giving em back the next day like its been
      doing lately

    • The lead movie property for Hasbro will be Fox's
      Titan AE, slated
      for summer 2000. Lastly is Super
      Chargers, a new NASCAR vehicle line that will be supported
      with an animated TV series on Fox Kids beginning
      January 2000. We believe that concerns surrounding
      disappointing Star Wars sales and the company's inability to
      grow EPS next year are being overblown. While one
      retailer has noted that sales of Star Wars products have
      slowed, most are pleased with the rate of sell-through.We
      are forecasting $600 MM of sales for the year of
      which $120 MM will be international. (Our Japanese
      media analyst informs us that the launch in Japan last
      weekend was a success with several hundred people lining
      up outside stores.) Thus, another $230 MM of product
      needs to be sold-in in the US this year and we haven't
      even hit Christmas.

        Murdoch wants 100
        pct of Vox TV channel -
        magazine

        HAMBURG,
        June 26 (Reuters) - The president of Rupert Murdoch's
        News
        Corp Ltd was reported on Saturday as saying the group
        would like to buy the
        remaining 50.1 percent it does
        not already own in German television
        channel
        Vox.

        Peter Chernin told German news magazine Der Spiegel in
        an interview that
        Vox had good growth and was
        well managed. ``We would therefore like to
        have as
        many shares as possible in it, preferebly 100
        percent,'' Chernin said.

        ``If someone wants to sell
        something, we will buy,'' Chernin added. News Corp already
        owns 49.9 percent of
        Vox.

        He said News Corp
        would like to reach an amicable agreement with Vox
        shareholder Bertelsmann AG (quote
        from Yahoo! UK &
        Ireland: BTGGga.F).

        Chernin added that News Corp
        wants to develop its German women's channel TM3 into an
        important
        entertainment channel for the whole family.

        TM3 has
        bought the rights to broadcast European Champions League
        Soccer matches for the next four seasons.
        News Corp
        would accept losses at TM3 in the first two years in
        order to increase market share, Chernin
        said.
