Weitz Investment Management Hickory Fund in its Q4 2021 investor letter, mentioned Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) and discussed its stance on the firm. Charter Communications, Inc. is a Stamford, Connecticut-based telecommunications company with a $105.4 billion market capitalization.

Here is what Weitz Investment Management Hickory Fund has to say about Charter Communications, Inc. in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

"After several quarters of pandemic-induced outsized growth, new broadband connection growth has slowed for Charter (and other U.S. cable operators). This slower growth has coincided with a renewed push by competitors like Verizon and AT&T to offer high-speed data (either via wireless connects or by building new fiber-optic networks). We remain confident that Charter’s infrastructure and technology roadmap allows them to compete effectively."
