Yacktman Funds Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox

Fox ( NASDAQ:FOXA )'s shares declined during the quarter after the company announced stepped-up investments in cable content and a more restrained and opportunistic share repurchase. We think Fox is significantly undervalued, in part because of underappreciated businesses like Star, which provides nearly -5% of television content in India, and equity affiliates which include Fox's '9% ownership of Sky, and non-controlling ownership stakes in Hulu and Endemol Shine. In total, we think Star, Sky and the other affiliate stakes could represent more than $-… per share of value while contributing only modestly to earnings. After adjusting for our appraisal of these underappreciated assets, we think the core of Fox trades for only 8-9 times earnings.
