    Thinking about buying

    Thanks for kind words. Sounds like you are up to speed if you have read the past few months postings. The recent one from value investor pretty much sums it up. Value investor is actually an analyst and follows the broadcast sector. He participates in all the conference calls, etc. He knows his stuff. He has also been posting for years in this sector.

  • "The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spent the most on TV ad time last week as the Midterm election campaign season gets down to the short strokes.

    That is according to a new Center for Public Integrity analysis of CMAG ad-tracking data, which pointed out that the Democrats have accused the Koch's of trying to buy the election.

    The DSCC ran 3,800 ads in U.S. Senate races in eight states between Sept. 16 and 22, double the number of ads run by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, but then again, the Republicans had $5 million less in the bank, says CPI.

    Republicans have a solid shot at reclaiming the Senate, but some are concerned Democrats' funding edge could translate to an edge in the voting booth as well.

    So far, just shy of $225 million has been spent on Senate race TV ad time for the midterms, according to CPI/CMAG figures, with North Carolina leading with $29.6 million."

    Everyone seems to be worried about digital and mobile stealing political ad revenues. D&M is expected to be up 2,000% from a few years ago. Sounds impressive right? They will still only get 3.3% of total amount spent on broadcast tv. Broadcast tv is expected to be up 5% from last mid-years. It will be around $2 billion+ in 2014. Now, let's do the math. 3.3% of $2 billion is $66 million......nothing to sneeze at. Broadcast is up 5% of $2 billion. Broadcast is still getting $100 million+ more in 2014 than 2010 and that's with digital getting $66 million+/-........broadcast tv is far from dead.
    Cable tv has had some awesome programming recently as well as Netflix, etc. However, the season premiere of Scandal last week had the largest amount of viewers in history for the show. And How to get Away with Murder had the highest amount of viewers in the past year for any new show's premiere, broadcast or cable.
    Let's not forget all the banks and funds that loaned companies in this sector BILLION of dollars for acquisitions in the past year. I'm sure their research confirmed this was a dying business. Yea, right. DaninFW

    I honestly hope you make money. Don't think you will lose but upside is about $11 now and downside $8 IMVHO. When they get a new CEO he will implement store closings immediately or soon after he is placed in charge. New CEO's throw out everything but the kitchen sink when they take over. That way they don't inherit the problems of the old regime and don't have to explain it's not their fault. This puppy is going to take a $50 million+ hit in next 3-9 months. Won't be pretty. At PBY, this scenario has happened every time new CEO takes over. By the way, nice trick buying PBY and selling it months before you buy it for a profit. Wish I had a time machine. And you were the one saying I was wrong with a strong sell rec at $11.40.........DaninFW

    You did it again. You copied most of the ideas that I argued with you when you were pumping the stock. Now you claim the ideas as your own? You twist everything. You may have predicted a bad acquisition but there is no proof either way at present. I pointed out at the time you were pumping EVC that the Todo Bebe was a failure and hedge funds were unloading it. I could go on and on. I have proven you wrong over 90% of the time. YOU NEVER OWNED one million shares of this. You really are destroying any iota of credibility you may have had. YOU STILL DID NOT ANSWER MY QUESTION.
    YOU STILL DID NOT ANSWER MY QUESTION.
    YOU STILL DID NOT ANSWER MY QUESTION.
    WHAT IS YOUR AGENDA NOW. WE KNOW YOU PUMPED AND DUMPED BEFORE. ARE YOU BASHING AND BUYING NOW??? THAT WOULD BE YOUR PATTERN. DaninFW

    I would take your money but doubt you could ante up. Based on the trades you listed I would win. Be careful. I was just trying to tell you that you made typos. Look again. Now, if you sold short and then bought back to cover the trades would make sense. You didn't list number of shares, etc. For the record, it would take me days to come up with all the hundreds if not thousand of trades on PBY since 1995. I posted many times over the past year or so that I have made over $600,000 in PBY profits since about 2008 alone. Didn't add them up before that. I have never lost money on a PBY trade. Read your post again. I think I know what you meant but I am not a mind reader. Sorry it keeps going down. If the funds start dumping you will be buying at $8 and change. PBY will be worth accumulating between $8.50 and $9.00.....it's a falling knife right now. DaninFW

    You are wearing me out. We all know your history whether true or not. We all doubt anything you say except your buddy Contra who jumps on both sides of the fence depending on what day of the week. The past is the past. Why are you posting now? We all know your position and endless, mindless thoughts mainly stolen from me when you were selling at $7 and pumping to everyone else. I remember posting them. You discounted them then and now use them as your bible. Save us all some time and just once every month or so come back and post one message and just paste from any number than you've posted. You say the same thing like a broken record. Why are you here now? There are only about a dozen of us on this board and you're looking like a real nutcase. We all know your spill......come up with something new or go away please. DaninFW

    I hate arguing with an idiot. Look at your typing. You said you did the following trades:
    5/1/04 bought at 10.06
    3/21/04 sold at 13.49
    6/4/12 bought at 8.91
    1/30/12 sold at $15

    You bought 5-01-04 at $10.06 and sold the same stock two months before you bought it at $13.49.
    Then, you bought on 6-04-12 at $8.91 and then sold over 4 months before you bought it at $15.........wow, must be nice having a time machine or whatever you are smoking. I need your e-mail so I can tell you where to send my $200,000.........your trades are not possible. You just said you never shorted. No other way. Pay up amigo. DaninFW

  • Big news I missed this morning from SBGI. I wondered why sector was up when market was down over 150 points. Looks like re-trans will continue to grow for sector which has been one of the big concerns:
    BALTIMORE, Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (SBGI) (the "Company" or "Sinclair") announced that it has entered into long-term agreements with the American Broadcasting Company ("ABC") for the renewal of the ABC affiliations in 13 Sinclair markets that come up for renewal during 2014 and 2015. Three of the new agreements will expire on August 31, 2019 and the other 11 will expire on August 31, 2020. The markets being renewed are listed below and include six of Sinclair's ten biggest ABC markets, including five of the top six ABC markets. Sinclair is the largest ABC affiliate with a total of 25 ABC affiliated stations. The Company's remaining ABC affiliation agreements do not expire for several years.

    Commenting on the transaction, David Smith, President and CEO of Sinclair, stated, "We are pleased to have reached this agreement with ABC to renew these affiliation agreements for 5-year terms including a number of agreements that were not set to expire until 2015. The viewers in these markets will continue to receive the popular programming that ABC provides including, "Modern Family," "Scandal" and "Dancing with the Stars, as well as top sports programming like the NBA and NCAA football. Furthermore, the ability to renew these affiliations on fair terms for periods ending as late as August of 2020 demonstrates that our interests continue to be fully aligned with those of the broadcast networks."

    Sinclair's Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Barry Faber, who oversees both Sinclair's relationships with its networks, as well as with the multichannel video program distributors (MVPDs) who retransmit Sinclair's television stations, stated, "As expected, we will continue to pay ABC reasonable fees, which will be invested in high

    There's a couple of great articles out there where Univision may soon be sold or do an IPO. If it does an IPO you can bet they will want to negotiate with EVC even sooner. When you do an IPO you don't want loose ends when you put together the prospectus. I also just posted where SBGI is now guaranteed ABC programming for at least 5-6 years. The broadcasters don't want to go cable. The one article on Univision says that depending on who buys the company they may have to divest their stations. EVC could be a big winner if they were able to put together a deal to own the Univision stations. They too would have to divest a few since Univision is at the cap..........but one thing that could happen is that EVC is the likely winner. If another company that is also near the limit at station ownership buys Univision.........then the stations would have to be sold. Could get very interesting soon. I tried pasting the article but Yahoo deleted it. DaninFW

    Univision

    daninfw04 daninfw04 Sep 29, 2014 5:42 PM Flag

    The article(main points):

    "Univision’s private equity owners will be aware that Univision’s audience is rapidly expanding. Latinos are the fastest growing demographic group in the US and their purchasing power is increasing, which makes them increasingly attractive to advertisers. By 2015 they will have $1.5tn of buying power – a 50 per cent increase on 2010, according to Nielsen.

    The size of the Latino audience can be seen in television ratings for the second quarter, when Univision was the fourth most watched network, ahead of CBS, for people aged 18-34. Its station in Los Angeles was the most watched in the entire US for adults aged 18-49 in day and primetime programming.

    Univision should appeal to several potential buyers – particularly those keen to strengthen their hands ahead of distribution negotiations with the likes of Comcast and AT&T. But which company would be the best fit?

    CBS, 21st Century Fox, Walt Disney and Time Warner could all benefit from Univision’s portfolio of assets. CBS, Disney and Fox also own local television stations in markets that, in some cases, would overlap with Univision – and which would probably require divestment to satisfy regulatory concerns.

    There would be no such problems with Time Warner, the owner of the Warner Brothers movie studio, news channel CNN and the HBO premium cable channel. Time Warner does not own any stations and, on paper at least, represents the best fit. It has the balance sheet to afford a potentially chunky transaction and a chief executive in Jeff Bewkes who, after rebuffing Mr Murdoch’s advances, has to show his investors that he has a growth plan in place."

    This is fun. Everyone reading this now has confirmed you are a mental midget. Here are your reported trades:
    5/1/04 bought at 10.06
    3/21/04 sold at 13.49
    6/4/12 bought at 8.91
    1/30/12 sold at $15
    11/2/10 sold at $11.75
    1/22/09 bought at 2.69
    You also just posted this:
    "You just aren't very bright Dan. The shares I sold on 3/21 were brought previously at $2.69."
    Let me try to explain your own message to you:
    You said you sold the shares on 3-21. The only 3-21 above is 3-21-2004...The only shares bought at $2.69 were on 1-29-2009. You sold the share 4 years and 10 months before you bought them. I am not making this stuff up. This is what you typed. And you say I am not bright? Please keep this going. I am about to fall out of my chair laughing. My wife just came in and I showed her. She also wants to know where our $200,000 is? I really apologize for making fun of you but you asked for it. I tried to be nice and point out a typo. You are really making yourself look stupid now.

    If you are new to the board, he and his aliases were pumping EVC when it was $5-6 and telling everyone it was going to $14-16. He was actually selling at $7. If you read the older posts you will see that I always said it was worth no more than $7-8....and still the same today. Now, he is bashing and buying. Once EVC firms up he will switch gears again. He is waiting for some relevant event. He is a real piece of work. A true scam artist. Beware his many aliases, at least truth.monger, outpissed and golf.messiah. I think contra_guy may be one as well if anything a crony. He never answers any questions and as you pointed out always spins the story regardless of how positive as a negative. It's really fun to see him work. Everyone on the board is wise to him. I just like to aggravate him. DaninFW

    I thought I would have fun with lying.mongers latest BS. And yes, I'm back to calling him what he is. I extended the olive branch and he has gotten more insulting and lying even more than usual. For the record, those of you that have followed me around for years, I just wanted to give you a little history. I have been posting as DaninFW for over 20 years. That's why I sign every e-mail as "DaninFW" because my yahoo name has changed. When I first started posting in the early 1990's I was always on the old Prodigy message boards and was "DaninFW'. In 1995, USA Today, in the Money Section had an article that featured myself and Frank Catalano, the "CAT" and how we were the top 2 stock pickers on the Prodigy message boards. In 1998, Prodigy was bought out by AT&T. They made me change my signon and said DaninFW was taken. So, I became DaninFW98. I posted 6 years under this until 2004 when Yahoo locked me out and said I didn't have the right password. So, they made me change again. So, I became DaninFW04. So, for 10 years I have posted only under Daninfw04. Boy, time flies. Yea, I really tried to hide my identity didn't I? Did I fool anyone other than lying.monger? What an idiot. DaninFW

    It was just a few days ago you were touting the superior programming of Univision and how they were going to go cable and do away with EVC. Now you say they have garbage? You are nuts. We all know that Univision has the #1 station in the country in L.A. . Univision is also #1 in the country in ratings for ages 18-34 and #4 in 18-49 and actually ahead of CBS. You need to share whatever you are smoking.

  • Univision currently owns 129 tv and radio stations. They are not going cable only. That would wipe out the value of their stations and they would have to write off a few billion dollars in assets. They need EVC because EVC pays programming and reverse comp to them. Nothing else needs to be said. DaninFW

    Market can support competition. 800,000 Hispanics grow into adults each year and Hispanic purchasing power by next year will be up 50% since 2010. You used to use these same arguments to pump EVC When you start pumping EVC we will all sell next time before you do. Scammer. DaninFW

    I love how you distort and twist the truth. EVC was highly watched with viewership way up. They got millions more in revenue from World Cup. The truth is they lost revenues from other sources due to poor management and lost local advertisers because they weren't able to shift to other programming. Give it up lying.monger. This really is fun showing you up for the scam artist you are. DaninFW
