Investors who dropped Comcast stock in the second half of 2007 made a mistake, according to Jean-Marie Eveillard, manager of the First Eagle Global Fund. Eveillard told Bloomberg that Comcast “is not going to disappear” and that despite competition from the telcos and regulatory threats from FCC chairman Kevin Martin, Comcast is worth $30 a share, which is far above yesterday’s closing price of $17.34. “We pay no attention to what happens in the short term,” Eveillard said.
