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.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
