moody's CBS Moonves

CSG Systems International was one of last week’s stock price winners, according to Cablefax’s week in review of telecom and media stocks for the week of February 8. Following a positive earnings report mid-week, the company closed out Friday at $37.59 per share, a 7.58% increase. Its 4Q EPS was $.77, beating analysts expectations of $.73. Comcast was also a winner, with $59.41 a share, up 5.07%. Its 4Q earnings report showed that it grew revenue by 8.3% in 2015 and operating cash flow by 7.7% YOY, generating close to $9bln in free cash flow.

A big loser last week was Lions Gate—closing at $18.53 per share, down 29.06%. The company reported that revenue fell 11% to $670.5 million, missing analysts’ target of $767 million—in large part due to the underwhelming performance of “The Hunger Games.”
