A Positive End To A Tough Week On Wall Street


Media companies rebounded on Friday to end the week on a positive note after getting pounded in trading on Wednesday and Thursday.

The losses came in reaction to a MoffettNathanson report that pointed to massive “cord-cutting” in U.S. homes. This compounded weak Q1 earnings results from a host of publicly traded radio and TV broadcast companies.

Key movers on Friday included DISH Network, up 2.6%, to $61.60, and TEGNA, up 3%, to $25.75.

The E.W. Scripps Co. gained 2.1%, to $21.07, as it reported flat earnings growth in Q1.

Both iHeartMedia and Cumulus Media were unchanged.

Ahead of Monday’s Q1 earnings release from Entercom, the company’s shares were off 2.7%, to $11.
