Just something I found interesting. Its about Liberty aquiring 38.5% (controlling interest) of DirecTV mainly.
"But this may just be step one in an effort by Malone to transform Liberty into a major operator of media properties instead of being largely an investor.
For example, some analysts say they expect him to next swap the company's shares in Time Warner (TWX) for the Atlanta Braves baseball team and about $1.5 billion in cash.
"The cash is the most important element since it would likely be non-taxable and the company could use the proceeds to acquire other strategic assets around the Starz Media Group," writes A.G. Edwards analyst Michael Kupinski.
As a result, Liberty "could emerge as a significant entertainment/media company."'
Good, bad, why? Discuss.
