DirecTV rallies following strong profit tally


Shares of DirecTV (DTV) move higher in premarket trading after the company bests revenue estimates with its Q1 report.

The company saw 12K net additions in the U.S. during the period which missed the estimate for a 14K rise.

Costs were kept under control in Q1 as DirecTV's adjusted operating profit margin improved 60 bps Y/Y.

DTV +2.2% premarket

    This has been a favorite investment idea of ours since late 2008, both via Liberty and directly. It is probably very close to the end game of DirecTV (DTV) as a standalone company.

    Probably a decent chance of a bidding war on this one, don't you think?

    Maybe. It would be a fit for (T) or (DISH)

    If Ergen can't have it, he might not let AT&T have it cheap.

    I highly doubt Dish has the firepower to outbid T.
