Deadline Wall Street With David Lieberman

Deadline’s Executive Editor David Lieberman talks with host David Bloom in the latest episode of Deadline Wall Street. Lieberman discusses what’s been driving the huge increase in share prices for News Corp, helped by the end of the “Murdoch Discount” as fears of further deal-making adventurism by Rupert have begun to ease.

Lieberman also looks at the raging debate over who’s to blame for Facebook’s post-IPO stock woes. One influential article put the blame on Facebook’s CFO, but an outspoken billionaire says investors aren’t guaranteed to automatically make money. Take your lumps, he says. Have a listen and let us know what you think.

The second episode of Deadline Wall Street With David Lieberman features our executive editor talking with moderator David Bloom about Quarter 2 Earnings Season on Wall Street for Big Media stocks. Media company after media company turned in relatively promising numbers, Lieberman reports, but for every optimistic presentation by a CEO, there were hints of reason for concern, especially for weak advertising revenues on the companies’ broadcast and cable networks.

Lieberman also says that rights fights between cable networks and pay-TV providers will become increasingly common as fees rise and consumers refuse to pay much more. Meanwhile, in a marked shift from several years ago, merger fever is over. These days, Big Media companies have a new trick to build share prices: Give money back to shareholders.
