Why I Am Long Time Warner: Investorhttp://www.cnbc.com/id/47086413When I evaluate media stocks, I judge them with the following five criteria: Massive and/or rapidly growing revenue Multiple, diverse streams of revenue Multiplatform delivery of premium content Direct control over premium content Ubiquity Time Warner pretty much nails it on every count. As an investor who looks for companies that operate from a position of strength in the media space, I salivate over Time Warner.Consider Time Warner’s massive reach and synergistic capabilities.The company has three business segments: networks, filmed entertainment, and publishing.Within those three areas, you’ll find myriad prime properties, many of which you probably wouldn’t associate with Time Warner. They range from HBO, TNT, TBS, and CNN, to People, Sports Illustrated, Fortune, and Time. And, of course, don't forget about Warner Brothers, which has its hands in movie, television, and digital distribution, as well as interactive entertainment. I like to call Time Warner’s under-the-radar omnipresence “hidden ubiquity.”
