$WWE Don't Bet Against Vince McMahon

NYSE:WWE   WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT INC
$WWE has been crushed over the past year with the stock down 55% from its highs. We believe at current levels, $WWE presents a turnaround opportunity and one which we see as a bet on CEO Vince McMahon. The man is a known fighter and we believe he can right the ship.

While the stock sold off on a revenue miss and a management shakeup, all news wasn't all bad.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights

Revenues increased 18% to $322.8 million, which was the highest quarterly revenue in WWE history
Operating income increased 87% to $99.8 million
Adjusted OIBDA1 increased 67% to a quarterly record of $107.6 million

WWE completed content distribution agreements with BT Sport and ViacomCBS’ Channel 5 in the U.K., Fox Sports in Latin America, PP Sports in China and SuperSport in Africa, providing strong platforms for reaching WWE audiences in these regions
Digital engagement continued to grow with video views up 10% to 34.5 billion and hours consumed up 7% to nearly 1.3 billion across digital and social media platforms
