NWS - NEWS CORPORATION..


ShareCafe

Recommended Posts

NWS had a great day today, up 2.3% at the close. This didn't surprise me at all with sentiment with it strongly, of late. A strong performance overnight in the US too .....Large volume.

 

NEWS CORP (NYSE:NWS)

Last Trade: 18.73

Trade Time: May 4

Change: Up 0.33 (1.79%)

Prev Close: 18.40

Open: 18.40

 

Day's Range: 18.40 - 18.79

52wk Range: 14.76 - 19.07

Volume: 2,519,900

Avg Vol (3m): 1,684,140

 

I've mentioned before I don't hold this stock but remain a fan of it's internet stratergy and have been hoping a "speccie" of mine, is included somewhere along the line. My Co reported overnight with signs of a definate "light, at the end of the tunnel"......

 

What did make me "warm & fuzzy" was the casual announcement within it's CC (following market close) that Looksmart have a new partner, in the FOX TV Stations.

 

Rupert Murdoch's FOX (Newscorp) have a total of 35 stations, consisting of 25 Fox stations, one independent station and nine UPN stations.

It was during Looksmart's CONFERANCE CALL after the close of market yesterday, 05/04/2006, Looksmart's CEO Dave Hills mentioned (twice) of Fox TV Stations becoming a partner of Looksmart. Will it be the same arrangements that the Viacom's CBS Local TV sites already have with Looksmart? Both Furl & porn free, Search results"? (eg: Check bottom of both Links, below)

And a "FindArticles on Tomato" search? (The "humble" Tomato?? LOL !!)

Yes .... It all becomes more interesting, each day that goes by.

 

NWS's myspace.com would be a nice "fit" with Looksmart's 'porn free' search & Furl ..Better still, NWS may buy into LOK?

 

Just a thought!

Big, Loud & Boring would be the general consenus for NWS. However for a charting AND Fundamental investor at last NWS is starting to look interesting.

The fact that the last post on this site was back about 9 months ago confirms my theory.

NWS IS definately looking better & I am suspecting that now NWS has broken out into the current trend this is a good safe & sound stock to be in as the rest of the world goes trading crazy with the Resource Boom. I'm in.

Anybody out there following NWS? Looks to be back at support dating from May 06. There might be a bounce off 24, obviously out of favour with the weak US$. Might be worth a punt buying in at around these levels. If 24 fails we could be heading back to around 22. Also the way the DOW has been acting latety doesn't give me great faith buying in, but this price certainly is compelling....

Please do not read anything into this; this is quite possibly wrong. My broker was bugging me for at least a week to sell some $24.00 put options, because they think (Macquarie) that the results of NWS will be outstanding.

 

I sold one (1!) contract...

 

 

 

Talking about hedging a bet!
