+ Watch AMCX
on My Watchlist
AMC Networks is fully capitalizing on the success of its three main drama series by creating inventive spin-offs and supplementary follow-up talk shows. Additionally, the company is expanding the genres of its networks and strengthening its weaker channel brands.
A PEG ratio of 1 for one of the most desirable content providers of entertainment today. It helps that I watch several of the shows so I know the business I am investing in as Warren B. would say.
These guys are the kings of content!-Their shows (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead) get winning awards and getting fantastic ratings. Breaking Bad had almost 6 million viewers last season. - This allows AMC to charge cable companies higher affiliate fees - which have increased 50% in the past five years. Advertisers are also drawn to and will pay more for the high ratings: ad revenue was up 14% over last year.- AMC is also distributing its content over iTunes and Amazon's Instant Video. I like the plan -- if they've got successful shows, why not make the most $$ that they can off of distribution?- I'll be keeping an eye on the pipeline of new shows and if they're able to continue to release best-in-class content.http://qz.com/114483/amc-is-succeeding-by-breaking-the-rules-of-legacy-television/
Big fan of content and media over the next several years as AMC and Scripps and Discovery find new ways to entertain us. Thumbs up.
Has steadily outperformed the market since its IPO a year and a half ago; its revenue and profits have been improving at a satisfactory rate; David picked it recently which makes me think it is likely to continue on the same course; Analysts rank it at 6.8, putting it close to their bullish line.
I'd suggest caution. AMC has been alienating and firing some of their best creative people. Tossing out proven assets is not a path to long-term success.Also, the best shows are getting long in the tooth.
Good shows, bad company.
It's run by a self-serving family that stuffs the board with relatives (all collecting paychecks for their directorship) and has an iron grip on 75% of the voting power. And the whole company seems to have been spun off only to unload a pile of debt from parent Cablevision onto the new company. AMC freely admits that it can't possibly repay that debt, which is practically a big, blinking sign to shareholders: WE WILL DILUTE YOU. Plus, its efforts to create new hit shows like Mad Men and The Walking Dead have thus far not borne fruit, and it's nickel-and-diming the hit shows it does have. Bad, bad moves from a bad, bad company.
Guessing with no basis on their finances, they make excellent and aggressive choices in programming, own SundanceNOW, have a good CEO and good management of employees. They have AMC, IFP, and Sundance channels and all affiliated stuff. So . . . they might not outperform the market, but I think they'll be stable and do well. Also, The Walking Dead is crazily high rated, and Breaking Bad and MadMen are critical darlings. But basically this is an emotional pick. I just like them. I don't know their numbers.
