+ Watch CBS
on My Watchlist
A mass media company with operations in the following segments: Television, Radio, Outdoor and Publishing.
Large stable company doing buybacks and pays dividend
CBS has a strong stable of original content and multiple ways to monetize it. Over the next 5 years, CBS will dramatically increase its non-advertising revenue, creating a more stable (and larger) revenue base. CBS also plans to increase its leverage somewhat in the next year or two to fund $5.5 billion in share buybacks, which will significantly shrink the share count.All in all, EPS could easily double within 5 years, which is more than one could say for the S&P 500. This should lead to sustained share price outperformance.
Despite the illegaility of computer generated NSA scripts to entertain the masses they will lose the masses needed to sustain their meteoric rise from the 50's
Sports rights will see them through. Need to move into the digital space in a big way.
A large amount of money will be spent in the upcoming months towards advertising for the 2012 elections.CBS should receive a good portion of those advertising dollars as they are rated number one out of the "big three, (four if you count Fox)".In addition to the upcoming elections,the NFL football season is quickly approaching. This is another huge revenue stream for CBS.Not to mention,I am a huge participant in fantasy football and currently I'm enlisted in three fantasy leagues which our league commissioners run through CBS sports.We pay a premium for this service and not only that, there are advertisements all over the fantasy web pages.These are all great revenue streams for CBS,so I feel the next 6-8 months should be great for CBS.The stock also offers a dividend.All these factors add up to a strong buy for me.
CBS network will continue to outperform peers in the advertising front.
S&P 5 star
Might be the best content provider
Big media wins. Period. Internet - Netflix, Youtube, etc. will only lead to MORE ways for them to make money.
This company is a syndication machine. They may not have the absolute best programming, but they're consistent ok. It's huge library will serve it well in the streaming market.
This stock has been down the last month or so but that isn't an indication of the overall trend. CBS once again has the highest ratings in the US and will rebound. Buy now because it is cheaper than a month ago.
projected earnings 12mo
CBS has weathered the storm, as declines in ad revenue are slowing across the board. The company is well diversified, and they've arguably made more headway into the internet than their competitors. Nice dividend as well.
Well run Company. These guys going strong in a weak Ad market.
they are a corparation who stocks will rise during sports season
The onlyouther news sorceisG.E.
Content is king! if advertisers don't pay for it then you will see it in some type of pay to view form. Also, 2010 will bring 4 movies to be released. The funds to make these have already been spent, so revenues from these films will mostly add to the bottom line. They just need to make th adjustment of salaries both to executives and to the shows/actors. Between the CEO Leslie/ Rhe Late Show and Judge Judy alone is almost 20 cents a share.
