The questions have been rolling across our domain about the Motley Fools Television 2.0 stocks – So what are the stocks they have been pushing in their $2.2 Trillion War for your Living Room ad?
I’ll come straight to the point…
Motley Fool through a very hyperbolic sales babble, have wedged the most debatable point here “Content is the King” so… who are the content providers in this brainteaser… and touting the stocks, according to them would be the winners in the race.
Yes they are essentially the Media Companies who own TV shows and get them to you some clues please…
Company A is an $89 billion powerhouse that owns more than 100 global television networks, plus 7 movie studios, 4 video game companies, and hundreds of websites.
This necessarily is Disney (DIS) — you know that Disney (DIS) is an entertainment and content powerhouse as well as a travel and technology company, owning big brands like ABC and ESPN.
Company B rose from the ashes of a declining newspaper empire. Now it’s cultivating a niche TV audience that’s especially attractive to advertisers.
This is Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI), that owns, the Food Network, HGTV, the Travel Channel, etc. Scripps did in fact start as a newspaper company.
Company C didn’t make IBD’s list…because it isn’t really an entertainment company.
This must be Discovery Communications unquestionably, as they call themselves “The World’s #1 Nonfiction Media Company” who own Discovery Channel, TLC, The Oprah Network, etc.
I am apprehensive about the picks though…
