Gabriel Grego of Quintessential Capital Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on Discovery Communications (Nasdaq: DISCA) at Best Ideas 2018.

Discovery Communications is a broadcaster of unscripted content and part of the John Malone group of companies. Discovery is undervalued due to fears about the transition of content delivery from TV/cable to alternative channels such as online streaming. Fears may be overblown considering that content demand should not be particularly affected by the nature of distribution systems. Discovery has recently acquired Scripps, a similar and complementary business that should help reach critical mass and improve bargaining power when negotiating with advertisers. Discovery’s international business is growing at a faster rate and offers opportunities for cross-selling.
