They will not get the number of subscribers necessary to have the WWE Network be successful and with them burning bridges with PPV providers they won't be able to recover.

When the WWE bought its competition in 2001 it became the end all be all of professional wrestling. As a result the industry remained flat. After coming off of a rocket ride the previous five years. It has struggled to keep some of the new fans it had gained and had even more trouble attracting brand new fans. They tired many things included separating talent on its flagship shows Raw and Smackdown in an effort to create competition and changing its format from TV 14 to TV PG (to the dismay of many fans including this one) the various changes have produced mixed results. In the last 18 months the WWE has seem to have found its stride with better story line and promoting talent like CM Punk and Daniel Bryant who do not fit the typical prototype of a WWE superstar. Many of their franchise players like Shawn Micheal's, The Undertaker, and Chris Jericho have retired or gone to part time status. The new developmental performance center and the NXT program have produced hot new superstars like The Wyatt Family and the Shield have made a major impact on the scene and have given the WWE a shot in the arm it needed. Since then I have finally converted my daughter to a wrestling fan after 10 years. Add to that the ground breaking news of the WWE network which diehard fans like myself have been waiting a lifetime for and you have the ingredients for a revolution not only in the professional wresting business but for television. The WWE changed entertainment and media with its contributions to cable networks and pay per view it will do the same with the WWE network. Hold on tight.

Virtually no revenue growth to speak of (average 1.1% per year since 2008). TV ratings have declined dramatically since the "Attitude Era" and have stabilized in the low 3's. UFC is cutting into their audience and drawing more pay-per view buys and mainstream publicity. The stock trades at 29x last year's earnings. That's the kind of P/E ratio that's acceptable for a growing company, not a company in decline.

There may be hope for WWE if the creative team focuses on building new stars, creating quality storylines, and most importantly, realizes that John Cena is not the next Hulk Hogan.

Since 2000, stock looks like it's been in a clear trading range. Now it's at the support level give or take about $1-2/sh.

The div yield coupled with the short interest and the possible very attractive entry point for bulls tells me there are good odds the price will rise from here. Looking for it revert back to $12 - 15/sh

The dividend is solid since the ownership changed the share class rules. Also, it's recession resistant. Even in a downturn people want their cigarettes, booze and wrastlin'. As long as they pay a nice dividend, I will own the stock.

This one that I would never actually purchase in RL, but it seems like a fairly safe play over the long run here on Caps.

1) First off, they have a ton of cash, something like ~$200 million which is just insane considering their market cap is only like 350M. To go with this, there is very little debt to speak of.

2) Even during the deeps of the recession, they continued to remain profitable. This is an excellent indication of just how resilient the whole WWE world is, people are going to continue paying for ridiculous/crappy entertainment going forward. I don't necessarily see their business growing that much in the future, possibly overseas; however that is irrelevant imo. They will continue to remain solidly profitable which is all i care about here.

3) The insider ownership is out of this world huge, the McMahon family owns/controls the majority of this company. Yes, the literal >50% majority. That's a lot of shares!

4) To top it off, the current dividend sits above 10%. That is nothing to sneeze at in what very well may be a range bound sideways trading market for the next few years. Some people have questioned the stability of this huge dividend, but WWE has continuously stated that it is here to stay. To back up this statement, the McMahon family (remember they own ~50% of the company) has passed up on receiving their dividends and plans to do so going forward. By doing so, they save WWE ten's of millions of dollars a year.

This won't make you a killing, but as it is near it's 52 week low and spots a nice 10% yield, there is a high possibility that it will beat the market over the next few years.

Losing lots and lots of fans to the UFC and Mixed Martial Arts in General. Even the biggest stars from the WWE are heading to UFC and Strikeforce. WWE gets highest profit margin from PPV which is directly in competition with dollars from UFC. WWE has had to add more PPV events to make up for decrease in viewers, but much like a newspaper lowering its sales price, this is just delaying the inevitable.

WWE, like Saturday Night Live, performs in cycles based on personnel. WWE doesn't have any Chris Farleys or Billy Murreys at the moment.

Surprisingly, the Mahon Family seems to have excellent management and marketing skills. Combined with such a large interest, I think they are motivated to do well. I like management having so much skin in the game.

As an old f-rt who has been watching TV since we had 4&quot; screens with magnifing glass, one of the most watched shows was wrestling. It has over the years lost and gained but as phoney as it is it still out ther and still raking in the bucks. Big Big bucks, this last quarter 30M increase in sales,20M increase in operating income, continuos sold out live shows 70,000 for last Wrestle- mania,bringing in 13M.This last 6 months has seen new more profitable contracts for toys and models as well as renewals on older contracts. Europeon TV contracts were renewed for 5 more years. Management has forecast annual growth of 15-20 % for the next 5 years. Some Bears were worried about other fight programs hurting the WWF, afew have gone by the wayside and others stock sells for 1-2 cents. Compitition is good for every one. Other douters are concerned with cash being available for divdend payouts I guess they missed the last two quarters reports. 8.35 % at todays price. I started to accumulate this stock last oct, in the 15's and have done so each month since.

With their own cable television station on the horizon, and the drive to become a legitimate film studio, WWE is poised to see huge gains.
