    By Ash Anderson - May 14, 2013 | Tickers: LMCA, MSG, MANU

    Sir Alex Ferguson has been at the helm of one of the world’s most well-known sports teams for 26 years. In that time, Ferguson and Manchester United (NYSE: MANU) won thirteen premier league titles, five FA Cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles, and that’s just naming the top tier titles.

    The legendary manager announced his retirement from the game last week, and that may not play well more »

  • WrestleMania's Grapple with Growth

    By Arturo Cuevas - March 28, 2013 | Tickers: MSG, TTWO, WWE

    The much ballyhooed 29th edition of WrestleMania, World Wrestling Entertainment's (NYSE: WWE) flagship event, reels off April 7, with its progenitor pulling all stops to elevate anew its ranking on Wall Street. The company, which also maintains a movie-making segment, is refocusing on what it does best—developing, producing, and marketing pro-wrestling events.

  • It Appears Expensive, But Is Worth an Investigation

    By Mike Thiessen - February 25, 2013 | Tickers: AMCX, DISCA, MSG

    The Madison Square Garden Company (NASDAQ: MSG) is up by 27% YTD behind positive news from the NHL and, more recently, a well-received earnings report.  The damage from the NHL lockout to MSG’s earnings was less significant than the Street expected.  Earnings also benefitted from greater than expected cost savings.  Looking forward, free cash flow is set to improve at MSG as the large capex outlays of recent years more »

  • Check the Media to Score From the NHL

    By Jake Safane - February 4, 2013 | Tickers: CMCSA, MSG, RCI

    At first glance, the NHL may not look like the most attractive sports league to put your money into, considering that 13 teams lost money last year. After a long lockout, though, the NHL has returned to the ice with a collective bargaining agreement that should make it easier for owners to turn a profit. For hockey fans and ordinary investors, there are a few opportunities to own a slice more »

  • This Massive Hedge Fund’s Best Under-the-Radar Investments

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - January 20, 2013 | Tickers: AMCX, ACAS, DECK, MSG, TRIP

    In the stock market universe, small-caps don’t get as much attention from investors, which often leaves them less efficiently priced than their larger peers. As one would reasonably expect, hedge funds seek to take advantage of this by dedicating their research teams to work on these lesser-known investments.

    Interestingly, retail investors can use hedge funds' top small-caps as a market-beating strategy; our analysis shows that the most popular small-cap more »

    By Robert Hanley - January 2, 2013 | Tickers: BWLD, MSG, SIRI, STRZA | Editor's Choice

    Americans are still crazy about their sports, as they watch and attend games in record numbers.  Major League Baseball recently announced that their teams sold a cumulative 74.8 million tickets to their games in 2012, a gain of 1.9% over 2011 sales.  The college ranks are also faring well, with the NCAA reporting that a cumulative 49.7 million tickets were sold to their football contests in 2011 more »

  • Three Reasons This Entertainment Leader Is Severely Undervalued

    By Delian Naydenov - December 26, 2012 | Tickers: AMZN, LYV, MSG, PCLN

    Live Nation Entertainment (NYSE: LYV) appears undervalued based on its current price to sales multiple, its solid investor base, and its competitive position. When compared to other entertainment companies, Live Nation has a lower valuation based on such measures as price to sales and operating income while it is also able to grow some of its most important segments. Further, Live Nation has a solid investor base that includes more »

  • How to Play the Big Business of Sports

    By Matthew DiLallo - September 20, 2012 | Tickers: MSG, NKE, RCI, STRZA, UA

    I don’t exactly remember how it happened, but it was love at first sight. All I do know is that when I opened my first pack of baseball cards that my dad had given me as a gift that I was hooked. Flipping those cards in my hands I’d immediately been drawn to the team on one card in particular and despite never watching one of their games more »

  • This Communications Company Dials up a Flat Quarter

    By Matthew DiLallo - August 3, 2012 | Tickers: CMCSA, MSG, RCI, STRZA, VZ

    Diversified Canadian communication and media company Rogers (NYSE: RCI) reported earnings last week, and I bet you didn’t even notice.  In fact, I bet you don’t know much about the company--that’s if you’ve even heard about them at all.  That’s understandable; their diversified business model isn’t growing profits fast enough to get much media attention.  On the bright side, they are reconnecting a lot more »

  • Why I'm Buying this Underfollowed Telecom

    By Matthew DiLallo - June 3, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, CMCSA, MSG, RCI, VZ

    For the third trade I’m recommending for my “No Drip, No Mess” Portfolio I am going north of the border for a Canadian Telecom that has a diverse set of businesses and pays a great dividend.  Instead of just buying the stock, I’m recommending writing puts to pick up some income today while attempting to pick up shares at a ridiculously low price. Given its current price it more »

  • Let's Go Rangers!

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - May 15, 2012 | Tickers: CVC, MSG

    Linsanity may have died down, but our interest in the world renowned sports venue that the Knicks call home remains high. People may not realize that Madison Square Garden (NASDAQ: MSG) was spun off from Cablevision (NYSE: CVC) in January 2010 and owns more than just the eponymous Madison Square Gardens. The company is an integrated media and sports company with ownership of the New York Knicks basketball team (NBA more »

  • What Linsanity Means for MSG

    By George Liu - February 13, 2012 | Tickers: MSG, NES.DL, TWX

    The Overview

    It's not everyday that the athletic prowess of a single person propels an entire company's shares to record highs. Then again, its not everyday that a Jeremy Lin comes by. Jeremy Lin, now the starting point guard for the New York Knicks, has reinvigorated the New York Knicks franchise. He was an instrumental playmaker in the Knick's five consecutive wins, the longest of the season more »

  • MSG to Time Warner- Start 'Dolan' out $$

    By Steve Viuker - December 26, 2011 | Tickers: CVC, MSG, TWX, TWC, VIA

    New York basketball fans were in a 'melo' mood after Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks opened the NBA season with a win against arch-rival Boston on Christmas Day. 

    However, a grinch might change that if MSG (NASDAQ: MSG), a Cablevison spin-off, and Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) don't come to an agreement by New Year's Day. The dispute would affect viewers of Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Devils and even Buffalo more »
