Elizabeth Knight ails it.

Structural decline
QUOTE
The former pay-TV monopoly is in structural decline, having been disrupted by new entrants into the video streaming space like Netflix and Stan, and more recently by Amazon Prime and Apple - all of which place intense pressure on the operating model of the traditional subscription TV product.

To make matters worse, in this quarter paying customers for Foxtel Now slumped from 446,000 to 375,000 as people tuned out after the final of the hit series Game of Thrones. Thomson said Kayo currently had 402,000 paying customers.

The pressure on Foxtel is further highlighted by News Corp’s move to advance the broadcaster an additional $200 million in shareholder loans on top of the $500 million that it has already lent. Foxtel’s debt has now increased to almost $2.3 billion.

The Australian news and information segment, which is made up of newspapers such as The Australian and The Daily Telegraph, also had a difficult year and experienced an 11 per cent fall in revenue thanks to weakness in print revenue.

News Corp posts $306m loss, blaming 'sluggish Australian economy'
QUOTE
QUOTE
Australia's sluggish economy and property slump have weighed on earnings at Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, which reported a $US211 million ($305.8 million) net loss for the first quarter after writing down the value of its US marketing business.


Higher costs at Australian pay TV arm Foxtel further helped drag down earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), which slumped 38 per cent to $US221 million, with the rise in expenses associated with cricket rights and an accelerated writedown of programming costs.

Revenue declines at Foxtel were driven by currency movements and the failure of the pay TV provider's new streaming services to offset declines from its traditional subscription service.

News said Foxtel's subscribers totalled 3.065 million for the quarter, up 6 per cent on the prior year, but the number of subscribers to its traditional pay TV service softened to 2.326 million from 2.4 million in June. The remaining customers accessed content through streaming options Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports.

Subscribers softening in June - wonder if that had anything to do with the "quality" of their reporting during the election campaign - just a thought

There it is Wren
Vol was up slightly Friday with a big gap up & another big gap today to break the range on no news.
Unfortunately both gaps were too big to chase, so a retrace is needed to get on board for me.
A few other media stocks building patterns also.

Watching for the rangebound breakout also Wren. Not much vol yet though.
Hopefully it will be up.

NWS has a market cap. of $13 billion (more than SLA and MST combined!) and there has not been a post since Oct.09.
Worth putting on the carefully monitor list imo. The bottom chart is a measure of Volatility representing the width of Bollinger Bands over 65 days. Bollinger said......'.low Volatility begets high Volatility' and few would disagree. Over the past 12 months Volatility has been very low indeed.When it does eventually rise we might wish to be aboard.

Hardly a post on NWS--one of the largest stocks on the ASX !I've been looking at liquid stocks that have not moved much in the recent rally and NWS caught my attention.(heard enough about what great value Banks now are to know that they near their top)
Technically,and is my only interest,NWS is in great shape.The Point and Figure chart is all one could wish for.As there isn't much interest in P+F here,the posted chat is a momentum system dreamed up by a fellow BullCharts user "Maxo",a prog.wizard.
Green is up,Red down and Black neutral.The chart is weekly data and a click on the image will allow a full page view.
(will be buying this week)
