Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twenty-First Century Fox stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twenty-First Century Fox’s first-quarter fiscal 2019 revenues were hurt by lower theatrical revenues at Filmed Entertainment segment and foreign currency fluctuations. Lower theatrical revenues were negatively impacted by lower volume and mix of films released, in the reported quarter. Additionally, higher programming costs and contractual expenses offset growth in Cable Network segment. However, growth in affiliate and advertising revenues from the Cable Network Programming and Television segments aided the top line. Moreover, the European Commission recently approved Disney’s offer for certain assets of Twentieth Century Fox, which is a positive. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis."

During the quarter, Cable Networks saw domestic affiliate fee growth of +9% and ad revenue growth of +7% with lower revenue from licensing of FX Networks content. The ad revenue result was particularly strong, with the outcome attributed to higher pricing at Fox News and FX as well as FIFA Sports 1. Domestic OIBDA margins rose by +6%. International affiliate revenues rose +10% in constant currency terms (though down -1% as reported) while international advertising was lower relative to 1Q18 in constant currency terms (-8% as reported).
