    TVL | LIN TV CORP, THANK YOU FOR 78% IN 2012, WE PREFER BELO AT CURRENT VALUATION. FINJITSU RESEARCH

    CHICAGO, IL - Jan. 9, 2013

    Current Perspective on LIN TV CORP | TVL

    TVL shares rose 78% in 2012 to close the year at $7.53 per share and hit $9.15 in yesterday's trading. On a relative valuation basis to Belo Corp (BLC: NYSE) and other peers, we have become less optimistic on TVL. That said, we think that over-delivery of political advertising, and opportunities resident in the New Vision acquisition (among other things) are contributing to the stock price appreciation.

    Previous Perspective on LIN TV CORP | TVL

    On November 8, LIN reported third quarter results. Net revenues up 36% with local increasing 17% and national rising 11%. Core time sales, ex political, rose 6%. Auto was up 23%, helped by the return of Japanese nameplates versus last year's tsunami-affected period. While upbeat about 4Q, LIN was more cautious about 2013 and the potential for an economic slowdown.
