Primary business continues to be magazine publishing and subscriptions. Although Meredith has one of the largest consumer databases in the world, especially for Amerincan women, it will probably go the way of the newspapers.

The increased online presence may not pay off, and I question whether the foreign content expansion will take into account different cultural viewpoints. Subscription and ad revenue loss from print content seriously hurts. Even though they're very good with the dividend, I'll be out in a few days.

Early cyclical name that should rebound nicely as GDP accelerates. Very cheap.

loosing money with their "Better TV" brand due to labor costs. While their sale of the show to Journal has bolstered their earnings it's only enough to keep them just within the black. As cost continue to rise and ratings continue to sink this gambit may hobble the company

For starters, Meredith forecasts their 2008 profits to be $3.50 to $3.55 a share. Now is a good time to get in because the stock has been down in recent weeks mostly because of the general volatility in the media sector. I'm entering on what I believe to be a dip before Meredith continues its upward trend for the year. It has a positive 6 month and 1 year moving average, and the company history is strong enough that there's no reason to believe that they won't meet their goals for 2007 & 2008.

Strong earnings with the likelihood of significantly expanded advertising revenues during the coming election season; international expansion and increasing revenues from internet activities.

This is a Joel Greenblatt magic formula pick. After reading The Little Book That Beats the Market, I was surprised to see how poorly Joel Greenblatt was doing on caps (TrackJGreenblatt) using his investing formula. However, since he repeatedly states in the book that the formula fails often enough that most people will give up on it, and even when it does work it requires buying a stock when it is not favored by the market and holding onto it for a year or more, I figured the way he was being tracked might not be a true indication of how well his magic formula was really performing.

I decided I would track some of the stocks his formula came up with that were not being tracked on his caps page. In addition to picking from the stocks selected by magicformulainvesting.com that are not currently being tracked by TMF, I will track all the magic formula stocks I pick for a year. Greenblatt recommends holding stocks for a year or more, however, all the stocks being tracked on his caps page are only being tracked for only 3 weeks.
