We’ll follow further developments in the stock and the media group stocks as well. Additional stocks that fit these criteria will be added to the playbook for easy reference.

Fox Media

Fox Corporation (FOX) shares rallied 16.6% over the last 3 trading days  to close at $37.09 (+28.43% YTD). This move can be attributable to an earnings percent change of 60% over the previous quarter February 9. Weekly price performance was on above average volume of 3 million shares on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Average volume of 1.7 million shares per day. This compares to the stock’s 6.8% gain over the past four weeks.

Fox extended its rally for the third straight day driven by optimism over increasing viewership and improving advertising demand on stronger linear and digital results at FOX News Media.
