    Question about MSG stock

    Does anyone know what percentage of their assets that the knicks account for?

    I am trying to figure out how much of what the Knicks do would effect the stock price.

    Cablevision separated MSG 5 mos ago and split 5 for 4, 4 old CV = 4 new CV + 1 MSG.

    MSG lost money in 06 and 08 and made $3.4M operating income in the 1st 3 qtrs of 09. In the same period in '09 the rest of CV had 975.7M income.

    From last week's NYDN:

    The Garden's stock has jumped with every suggestion the NBA MVP might sign with the New York Knicks, according to Crain's New York Business.

    Getting King James in a Knicks jersey when he becomes a free agent July 1 would mean higher ratings on the MSG cable channel and bolster crowds at the the famed arena, analysts say.

    He'd bring an immediate $10 million to $20 million bounce in revenue, Patrick Rishe, a professor of economics at Webster University, told Crain's.

    "The addition of LeBron would put [the MSG network] at a different level," says Rich Golden of HN Media & Marketing.

    Playoff appearances could be worth $25 million to $50 million and propel the value of the Knicks franchise - which Forbes put at $586 million in December - up by $150 million, Rishe said.

    Caution-that's a big if. MSG stock closed Friday at 20.03 down from its high of $22.95...(opened around $17.50 in Feb and traded as low as $16.35)...it's already affected by the delay

    Forbes valued the Knicks at ~$580mm, about 40% of the current market cap of MSG.

    Please, please, please do not invest in this stock based on your forecast for the Knicks.

    MSG is currently what is called a "hedge fund hotel", meaning that every wiseguy hedge fund manager/sports fan owns the stock. They will bail on the stock en masse for any number of reasons, not the least of which would be them not signing Lebron.

    Do you see this stock as any more promising then previous sports stocks? I believe there were 4: packers, Indians, celtics and florida panthers.
