  • News Corp Posts $203 Million Q4 Loss on Charges (NWS)

    Rupert Murdoch-led media and entertainment company News Corporation (NWS) late Wednesday said it lost $203 million in the fiscal fourth quarter, hurt by several one-time charges. The New York-based company reported a fiscal fourth net loss of $203 million, or 8 cents per share, compared with a profit of $1.1 billion, or 43 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding $680 million in one-time charges, adjusted operating income was $948 million, down from $1.4 billion last year. Revenue dropped 10.5% to $7.67 billion when compared to the year-ago period. On average, Wall Street analysts expected slightly lower revenue of $7.63 billion. As for the full fiscal year, News Corp reported a net loss of $3.4 billion, or $1.29 per share, compared to net income of $5.4 billion, or $1.81 per share, in fiscal 2008. News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch said that the company plans to charge for access to its news sites, stating "Quality journalism is not cheap, and an industry that gives away its content is simply cannibalizing its ability to produce good reporting." News Corp, which operates the FOX TV networks and movie studios, also owns such news sites as The Wall Street Journal and MarketWatch. News Corporation shares rose 33 cents, or +2.7%, in morning trading Thursday. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of NWS since our June coverage began, when the stock was trading at $17.97. The company has a dividend yield of .98%, based on last night’s closing stock price of $12.21. The stock has technical support in the $8.50-$9.50 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $13-$14 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now. News Corporation (NWS) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

  • News Corp Q3 Profit Flat, Newspaper Ad Revenue Fading Fast (NWS)

    Media superpower News Corporation (NWS) said late Wednesday that its fiscal third quarter profit was mainly flat from a year-ago, as the company's cable network programming revenues helped offset its newspaper woes. The New York City-based company reported fiscal third quarter profit of $2.7 billion, or $1.04 per share, compared with $2.7 billion, or 92 cents per share, in the same period last year. Excluding special one-time items, the company's operating income fell 47% to $755 million. Overall revenues declined 16% to $7.4 billion, compared with $8.8 billion in the year-ago period. News Corp said that its newspapers and information systems unit saw a 97% decline in operating income, and its its television segment fell 99%. However, its Cable Network Programming unit, which includes FOX News Channel, ealmost doubled its operating income year-over-year, while Filmed Entertainment earnings jumped by 8%. Majority owner Rupert Murdoch made some positive comments about the company's prospects, saying that "there are emerging signs in some of our businesses that the days of precipitous decline are done and that revenues are beginning to look healthier." News Corp shares rose 31 cents, or +3%, in late morning trading Thursday. The Bottom Line We have avoided shares of NWS since our June coverage began, when the stock was trading at $17.97. The company has a dividend yield of 1.13%, based on last night’s closing stock price of $10.65. The stock has technical support in the $8 price area. If the shares can resume the recent uptrend, we see near-term overhead resistance around the $11-13 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now. News Corporation (NWS) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
