$CHTR earnings were nice.... but it's still way too cheap

Posted On February 5, 2019
I'm happy to do work on (and possibly invest in) just about anything, and I think the stuff I post on this blog reflects that "openness". Microcap pharma company after a failed phase II? Check. Airline loyalty company after it's lost its airline? Why not? Hairy take-unders where the majority controller is screwing / stealing […]

Christmas Ideas for 2019: Honorable Mentions $CHTR $GLIBA $IAC $MSG $MEIP $GAPFF $CVI $I

Posted On December 13, 2018
In yesterday's post, I introduced my Christmas Ideas for 2019 series (I wrote it early morning and somehow managed to misspell Christmas in the title; a misspelling that will live in infamy on twitter for the rest of time). Today I wanted to run through some "honorable mention" ideas that I thought about profiling for […]

How Big of a Threat is 5G Fixed Wireless to Cable? $CHTR $VZ

Posted On December 7, 2018
I’ve written about cable a lot on this blog, and Charter represents, by far, my largest position (which I’m long through GLIBA / LBRDA), so it’s no surprise that a lot of the inbound contacts / questions I get relate to cable (I sometimes worry that I live in a cable bull echo chamber, since […]

Some updated thoughts on Charter post earnings $CHTR

Posted On August 1, 2018
In general, I don’t like to write follow up pieces on the blog. It’s way more fun to research and write about new companies / situation / ideas, and I think it’s more fun for you (the reader) to read about new things as well. So I tend to avoid follow up pieces unless I […]

Cord cutting and other cable risks $CHTR

Posted On October 5, 2017
An increasingly long time ago, I was an analyst for a consulting firm. In ~2012, we were working with one of the big cable companies and I was on a call discussing some work I was doing modeling their finances going forward using different assumptions for cord cutting (things like what if 3% of customers […]

Still bullish on Charter $CHTR

Posted On October 2, 2017
I’ve previously published some bullish thoughts on Charter (disclosure: net long through the Liberty complex), but I wanted to publish some random updated thoughts here (to tip my hand, I plan on publishing a Liberty Ventures (LVNTA, disclosure: long) update in the wake of the GCI proxy getting filed and wanted to have updated thoughts […]

Charter: A levered return of capital story for the ages $CHTR

Posted On June 28, 2017
Charter is undervalued versus peers Insiders are very bullish on Charter and the company is buying shares back like crazy I don’t think the market realizes just how wild (in a good way) these share buybacks are yet Charter (CHTR; disclosure: I am net long this through different pieces of the Liberty complex) is a […]

Comcast: buy the cable business, get everything else for (almost) free? $CMCSA

Posted On May 8, 2020
I spend a lot of time looking at and thinking about the cable / telecom / media sectors, and you can't spend any time on either of those without thinking about / looking at Comcast (CMCSA) given their ownership of Xfinity (the largest cable company in the U.S.) and NBC (one of the largest media […]

Some things and ideas: February 2020

Posted On March 2, 2020
Some random thoughts on articles that caught my attention in the last month. Note that I try to write notes on articles immediately after reading them, so there can be a little overlap in themes if an article grabs my attention early in the month and is similar to an article that I like later […]
