    Did Comcast Stock Holders Lose By Winning Sky?

    Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), one of the nation’s biggest cable companies and owner of NBC and entertainment outfit Universal, has outbid Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA) for European pay-TV giant Sky, prompting Comcast stock to plummet on the news. The deal keeps both companies jointly shielded from the combination of Fox and Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) before the two rivals have a chance to fully communicate their merger, which was approved by Disney’s shareholders in July. The wrinkle: Fox, soon to be entirely owned by Disney, already owns 39% of Sky, leaving owners of Comcast stock unclear as to the potential fiscal upside.

    Oppenheimer Downgrades Comcast After $40B Sky Bid, Projects Increasing Competitive Pressure

    Just a few short months ago, Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) conceded in the race for Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ: FOXA) assets and redirected its focus to British media conglomerate Sky Plc.

    Sky's shares jump after Comcast wins auction with big bet

    Sky (SKYB.L) shares jumped 9 percent on Monday to within touching distance of what Comcast (CMCSA.O) will pay to buy Europe's biggest pay-TV group after seeing off competition from Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA.O).
