Here is what Longleaf Partners Fund has to say about Liberty Broadband Corporation in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

"We swapped out of Comcast into Liberty Broadband in the quarter, as Comcast neared its appraisal, while misguided shortterm fears about slowing broadband subscriber additions miss Liberty Broadband’s latent pricing power and its best-in-class capital allocation, thanks to Liberty Media’s effective control. The portfolio activity section in our last several letters has highlighted our growing ondeck list, and we were able to act on those opportunities to put cash to work in the fourth quarter. We initiated three new holdings, which we are still building to various degrees. We already discussed the Liberty Media for Comcast swap above, where we now have a better company on Business, People and Price and more opportunities to close the P/V gap sooner rather than later."
