DISCA has an A for financial health and a PEG less than 1 on Morningstar, so it's one of my long picks.

Continues to add good series and expanding various networks. Viewership is up and positive outlook.

Discovery's content is on a race to the bottom. It calls itself a "nonfiction" channel but it's rife with sensationalist shows and programming that definitely requires fact checks on one's own to find out the real truth on topics. At one point I thought its expansion into international markets would be a good growth driver, but the brand tarnishing that is going on is NOT good for the long term. (See: 2013 Shark Week as a good example of the race to the bottom concept.)

Discovery's edge comes from the fact that is has very few direct competitors in the specific field of media content-creation it operate in, namely the unscripted documentary-style television show. As the demand for compelling content increases, the company's unique ability to film practically anything and turn it into griping entertainment will allow Discovery to grow successfully across the globe with few impediments.

The cost of content is clearly rising for both streaming and traditional pay-TV companies. Starz turned down $300 million in 2011, after a $30 million deal in 2008. Disputes between cable/satellite companies and content creators are in the news more and more. Netflix is dropping content left and right. I assume because the costs have risen too high.

Amazon, a cash rich company, has an intense focus on kids & family and educational programming, a niche Discovery has quite a large presence in. As Amazon grows to become a bigger rival to Netflix, the value of its content will surely rise.

Great programming, strong growth, and one of the Motley Fool's "cable destroyer" picks.

its an undervalued company that people don't pay attention to even though many great funds have a large percentage of their shares in their portfolio

Great low cost, popular programming = outstanding profits. I've wanted this for years, but never pulled the trigger. I think now is a reasonable entry point for a company going nowhere but up in the future.

Comon who doesn't watch a Discovery Channel show now and then? With the addition of other channels and now OWN, how can this be a bad pick? Has been oversold the past few weeks after a big run up = time to buy. has a healthy balance sheet, great cash flow, and earnings are expected to double by 2013, decent P/E. This is a no brainer.

want to see their more educational lineup of channels succeed, and I think they will - more devoted following - more unique and enduring content than typical sit-com or police drama

This network is different from the run of the mill network crap on TV. It has a nitch. I forget how many countries it channels programming to. Maybe 60. I also forget how many different languages it broadcasts in. Maybe 12 or more.

Is there anyone who does not like or does not watch Myth Busters?

This is a flawless, blue diamond of about 20 carats waiting to be discovered.

I dig it.
