Which media stocks should you be watching? Managers pick

With a variety of media stocks trading at their highest valuation in months, CNBC asked some top portfolio managers if this momentum will continue and, if so, where they are putting their money.

David Pearl, co-chief investment officer of Epoch Investment Partners, likes Comcast. He believes Comcast is undervalued "because they have diversified from being a distributor cable company to really being an owner of content."


"Even though media stocks have come back up lately, many are still selling at discounts in the market, and Time Warner is a discount." -John Maloney, chairman and CEO of M&R Capital Management

Plus, he pointed out, "NBC happens to have the Olympics coming in this season, so it is very timely to own this stock, and we think they're very well hedged relative to many of their competitors."

John Maloney, chairman and CEO of M&R Capital Management, said he likes Time Warner.

"Even though media stocks have come back up lately, many are still selling at discounts in the market, and Time Warner is a discount," Maloney said. "The [Time Warner] stock has a very reasonable multiple of earnings."
