Top Media Analyst Reveals Top 3 Trades

Friday, 17 Dec 2010 | 5:38 PM ET

Think media stocks are sending mixed signals? Then, don’t make a move until you check out these picks from top media analyst David Bank of RBC!

”Like a bad horror movie, the investing world has been gripped by fear that the world is going to stop watching traditional TV,” says Bank.

But he thinks those fears are irrational. In fact Bank tells us the fundamentals for these stocks are outstanding.

As a result he recommends the following: Viacom, Scripps Networks Interactive, Time Warner .

Bank tells us Time Warner is more of a short-term trade “the stock could trade into the high $30’s” he says, while Viacom is more of a long-term investment. “This could be a $50 stock.”
