QualityStocks News - Financial Media Group, Inc. Rated 'Speculative Buy' by Independent Research Firm
IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 23 -- QualityStocks reported today that Financial Media Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: FNGP), a diversified media and advertising company, has announced that it has received initial research coverage from analyst Brian R. Connell, CFA at Harbinger Research LLC, New York, with a rating of "Speculative Buy."
QualityStocks stated that the report, by Harbinger Research, states that the key driver behind its rating was the Financial Media Group "accelerating revenue growth and the rollout of its new social networking and community site," mywallst.net. Connell placed a two-year price target of $5.00 a share on the stock, and a three-year price target of $8.00.
Although mywallst.net is a new initiative for the Company, Harbinger states that "unlike many social network site start-ups, Financial Media Group can leverage its active member base ... to jump-start adoption to the point of critical mass." In addition to its base of members, traffic at the Company's existing Web property, mywallst.net, is currently totaling more than 300,000 visitors a month.
Citing the success of social networking applications similar to those found at mywallst.net , the Harbinger report states that this "newest generation of tools and applications has the potential to spawn hugely successful businesses, as community sites tend to have monopoly pricing power, low customer acquisition costs and relatively low content-creation and acquisition costs."
QualityStocks stated the report provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the Company's current content offering, Web properties, financials, management team, corporate strategy and competitive advantage.
Harbinger listed the Company's key competitors as well-established financial information hubs including Yahoo! Finance and AOL, and states that "[Financial Media Group, Inc.] has certainly built a strong business to-date in the face of just such competitive pressures, and given what we believe to be some very intelligent new products and initiatives, have no reason to expect them to stumble simply because of the presence of the competitive pressure under which they have so far thrived."
As part of its Valuation and Investment Opinion, Harbinger states: "Given that acquisitions in the financial portal and the online community industries can routinely range from five times to eight times trailing sales, this yields a potential take-over value three years from now of $150mln - $240mln, several times the company's current market capitalization."
Harbinger Research, a New York-based independent equity research firm, was retained by the Company because of its focus on providing coverage to small- cap companies.
