Nexstar’s Big Growth Burst


Don’t look now, but it appears one of the nation’s top broadcast TV station owners is on the verge of a big-time rebound.

Nexstar Media Group shares have seen a steady rebound since bottoming out on May 3 at $61.20. With Monday’s market close, NXST is back where it was in late February, and within $10 of its all-time high.

On exceptionally high volume of 1.25 million shares, Nexstar rose $2.20 a share to finish Monday at $72.80.

What was the reason for this jump? Nexstar goes ex-dividend on May 10, and has not made any significant announcements.

But, the company did participate in the 10th annual entertainment and broadcasting conference hosted June 7 by Gabelli & Company in New York.

As such, it appears Nexstar was successful in touting its pluses to the Wall Street investment community.
