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
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
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
Are we long in the wrong symbol?
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.
Did anyone else read the Newsweek article this
week on FOX?
positve...one question though...
what stock symbol are they
showing on the graph on page 41?
Why has FOX not shown that same momentum if the
article is on target?
was getting ready to dump last week in
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
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.
* It is also worth noting that many
fund/portfolio managers are embarking on their
"window dressing" exercise. This is the
by institutional investors adjust their
in an effort to provide a positive
their portfolios for their quarterly
reports. --- GO
