Why is Fox Corporation Stock Going down?
The Fox Corporation stock price has fallen. It’s down almost ten percent for the month. However, the firm remains anchored by its TV properties.
Its Cable Network Programming segment is made up of the production and distribution of news and sports content. This segment distributes content through traditional MVPDs, and licenses business news content.
Fox Corporation provides news and sports content under its FS1 and FOX Sports brands. Additionally, it distributes news content under its FOX News Media and FS2 brand.
Fox’s television networks group grew 19 percent in the first quarter of 2022. However, this growth was offset by Turner’s 28 percent loss in viewers.
Rupert Murdoch owns 40% of both companies. He is considering a merger. But the move has met with resistance from shareholders. In response, the two firms formed a special committee to examine the possible merger.
The merger would combine the U.S.-based Fox News and Fox’s digital real estate assets. However, the Murdochs aren’t sure if they can justify the premium that a deal would require.
MoffettNathanson has labeled Fox a “Buy.” They expect the company to outperform the market. For instance, it expects 21 percent of its total revenue to come from digital advertising in 2025.
Fox has an awe-inspiring array of properties, including live sports. These properties are always in development, though.
Murdoch’s media empire is a large bet on the value of live sports. This means that the firm could lose rights packages if cost inflation continues.
