Robert Deaton presented his in-depth investment thesis on Sinclair Broadcast Group (Nasdaq: SBGI) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2017.

Sinclair is acquiring Tribune Media (NYSE: TRCO). The combined company will be the largest broadcast station group in the United States, covering 72% of U.S. households, including those in 39 of the top 50 markets. On a pro forma basis, the combined company can generate $1+ billion in annual free cash flow. Robert believes the company would benefit from selling equity and/or non-core assets to reduce the debt-to-EBITDA ratio to 3.5:1. This should result in FCF per share of about $5.90. Assuming a 10% FCF yield, Robert places a target price of $59 per share on the equity.
