Lemelson Capital Reaffirms Short Call on World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)
Shares Fairly Priced Between $8.25 and $11.88
SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lemelson Capital, LLC, a private investment management firm, today is reiterating its "sell" position on the common stock of World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE: WWE).
This guidance follows Lemelson Capital's earlier March 17, 2014 sell position on the stock. Since then, WWE has experienced a substantial correction, falling 26.8 percent, from a $30.37 March 17, 2014 close to $22.21 yesterday.

Despite this correction, Lemelson Capital today reiterates its position that the stock remains overvalued. The firm affirms $8.25 to $11.88 as fair value for the stock based on the company's execution track record, accelerating earnings declines and lack of visibility into a more lucrative broadcast network contract.
"WWE is facing multiple challenging factors, including underwhelming subscription figures for their WWE network in addition to a multi-year negative earnings trend, suggesting that the firms' intrinsic value is materially lower than the current stock price," said Emmanuel Lemelson, Chief Investment Officer of Lemelson Capital.
Lemelson Capital Management's March 17, 2014 sell report has been cited as a key factor in the stock's substantial downward correction. In that report, Lemelson Capital reported that "the 10-year earnings growth rate of the company is -17.3%. The five-year earnings growth rate is something more substantial at -46.2%. The one-year earnings growth rate is a remarkable -91.6%."
At the close of the market on April 8, 2014, despite the roughly 27 percent correction since Lemelson Capital Management's March 17, 2014 report, WWE is still trading at a price-earnings ratio of 600.
Lemelson Capital and its clients have no position in WWE.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment.

Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
