    Spectrum auction delayed until 2016.

    News came out when market opened this morning and several articles all day long. Market had time to digest and probably why sector soft on an up day. But, LIN and MEG this morning also filed SEC documents estimating Q3 numbers for their merger. Revenues soft and both under expect with MEG much weaker. That imvho is why sector soft today. Yesterday, article came out that national ads for tv down 4% and cable up 2%. 3 bad pieces of news within 12 hours. Auction only being postponed 5-7 months. I think this will give more time for mergers in the sector and time for activists to circle EVC. I would not be surprised for management to take EVC private. Da info

    Of course I do. Doesn't everyone? When you buy a stock at a certain price you have to be convinced that you are smarter than the guy selling it........DaninFW

    I have never shorted any stock. Upside is limited and downside is limitless. Stock could be getting propped up with company repurchases. I just prefer to trade PBY. If we get down in low 8's I will start trading again. Good luck. DaninFW

    Sentiment: Sell

  • daninfw04 by daninfw04 21 hours ago Flag

    Tried to reply but Yahoo would not let me. PBY looks to be settling into a $8.40+/- to $8.75+/- trading range. It has been going up fractionally with the market but smaller percentages. Volume is also growing smaller so that says not a lot of sellers now. I do not expect next few quarterly reports to be very good. ORLY just said this week that Q4 revenues will be below previous guidance. However, low gas prices can be here today and literally gone tomorrow. But, if they stay down for several months it will help all auto parts retailers. The reason it is holding is because of perceived real estate values. But again, the exit of O'Dell says their multi-year strategy once again did not work. If BOD's finds a big name to run the company it could pop but it will takes years and at least $100 million in asset write downs to give this company any kind of chance. A great trading stock but not for long term investment IMVHO. If any of the big holders start dumping it will easily drop below $8. DaninFW

    Martel, are you still working in the sector? We didn't always agree but I always respected your opinions. You were a great asset to these broadcast message boards and all but disappeared. Any thoughts on EVC? Thanks. DaninFW

    Univision will report financial results on Wednesday, 10-29-14, before market opens. We should be able to get some good ideas as to re-trans trend and national advertising. These two line items percentage wise or trend wise should be about the same for EVC. Should be worth the read or listen to conference call. DaninFW

    CEMEX reported Q3 this morning. They reported sales in the U.S. were up 13%......in Q2 sales in the U.S. were up only 10%. That's a 3% sales improvement and USCR operates in stronger markets. Bodes well when USCR reports. DaninFW

    Fairness - Emailed to EVC this AM

    A great point. I am not an attorney but once notified that they need to inform shareholders they might be legally liable........it's time the management of this company that uses it for their own personal ATM machine do what is right for those that actually own the company..........not control the company by super voting stock. This also raises the question if the CEO and other few shareholders that control this company can be held legally liable for breaching their fiduciary responsibilities. This is where if an activist shareholder started acquiring a large stake in this company could push a few buttons. DaninFW

    True, but EVC is currently outpacing them at almost 4% now. The 100,000 and 50,000 block trades are the first blocks of this size I have seen in over a month. Someone has decided they want to own a bunch of EVC today. DaninFW

    First Schedule 13 for EVC filed yesterday. Dalton Grenier which just took it's position in EVC in Q2 with 1,086,708 shares and was the 15th largest stockholder.........added another 804,694 shares in Q3 and now owns 2,081,312 shares. It went from 15th largest holder to 7th largest holder in one quarter. Might be interesting to watch this one. If they bought any shares from 10-01-14 to 10-22-14 they were not included. Will be interesting to see what other large holder did in next 24 days of reporting. DaninFW

    Tomorrow will be the confirmation if trend is intact. As many of you know I am not a technical person. Just know enough to be dangerous. I know and understand technical but don't use them in news driven stocks like EVC. Technical support does indicate a lot of strength however since it bounced off the $4.64 low almost instantly. In the case of technicals, the higher high's and higher low's are usually millions of shares traded at those points in high volume stocks. In the case of EVC it was just hundreds of shares. Tomorrow if we hit higher high's and higher low's it will be another good sign. This stock is being accumulated. Yesterday, it traded between $4.71 and $4.73 for almost 3 hours. Once the weak hand are out at this level we should pop above $5 quickly.......if the overall market doesn't tank. JMVHO. DaninFW

    For the past six days EVC has had higher highs and higher lows. Today, Day 7 we have hit a new high but tied the low from yesterday. As long as we don't go below $4.66 today, the technical trend is holding. Looking for a breakout soon. DaninFW

    Several articles have been out on this. Looks like opportunity in the spread. Concerns for sector have kept the spread wider than usual. IMVHO, MEG will be a great stock after merger. Too much confusion for the average investor hence the spread. DaninFW

    Countless Possibilities

    Again, selling the non-Spanish spectrum assets would alone bring in $490+/- million which would pay off all debt and leave $100 million in cash. I could paint easily another dozen scenarios.
    For those not aware, Univision announced last Thursday that they were going to offer a streaming service for their Univision, to complement their current channel. They say 76% of their 18-49 viewers watch only Univision and no other channel. That is mind blowing. They are just offering more of what they already have. I never saw Univision going streaming and neither did lyingmonger. He always thought they would go cable. Univison also announced last week that they were closing their local news desk for their Puerto Rico station and laying off 99 people. They are going to eliminate local news and add more talk shows with their #1 radio disc jockey. They also own 4 radio stations in Puerto Rico. Doesn't make sense to me. However, EVC has a contract with Univision till 2021 but may be willing to discuss some things if you know what I mean. EVC may actually have some leverage depending on what Univision is thinking long term. On the other side of the equation, EVC also has many options. They have the #1 radio disc jockey in the United States by several rating standards. Officially and legally they can only claim Top 3. However, why doesn't EVC start their own talk show on TV with their #1 disc jockey. That would provide one hour daily of new programming they could even syndicate. Did you know that SBSA(Spanish Broadcasting Netwrok) doesn't even own broadcast spectrum? They televise on DISH network only. With Todo Bebe and a talk show and other content, local news, etc., EVC could even evolve to a non-broadcast station. Again, time for the guys making the big bucks to make some tough decisions.
