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.

it seems like their problems are due to a recent acquisition that increased revenue from 2b to 3b, but they have failed to reduce costs. This led to several bad quarters. I believe they will reduce costs and become profitable over the next 24 months

Meredith recently acquired Time, Inc's print magazines--Time, People, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, Money. They did not over leverage to do it. MDP's two main business lines are print media and TV stations. Their TV stations are primarily in top 50 markets, very profitable, and stable. Their secret sauce in print media is recognizing which genres of print media will continue to draw customers, and which will continue to lose viability to online competitors.

Meredith correctly assesses that those print media which focus on news and current events or timely subjects continue to lose out to the advantages of online delivery. On the other hand, Meredith's offerings focus on home, family, hobbies and matters that are more timeless. A 10 year old edition of Better Homes and Gardens might well still have interesting articles to one its current readers. That is MDP's secret sauce. Thus, MDP's plan is to sell all of the acquired magazines except for People. The others continue to lose readership as their subject matter is more rapidly reported by digital competitors.

Another key value from the acquisition of the Time assets is Meredith's ability to squeeze $400-500 million from operating expenses through consolidation of functions in the two print media groups.

With a 4% dividend and a 9 PE, what's not to like about this well managed, Midwest values company that knows what its future is?
