WWE

I have been a subscriber of the WWE network for a couple of years.... for the grand kids of course. But seriously, I am lucky to be a big part of my grand kid's lives, ages 6, 11, 11, 13. I have taken them to some live events here in the DFW area and we get together to watch the big events like Wrestle Mania, Summer Slam, etc. So following the idea of investing in what you use I took at look at WWE a while back and starting following it's financial news. It has exploded over the past year before I even considered investing in it.

I finally puled the trigger on a small purchase a little over a month ago at what I was concerned could be its high-water mark at about $58/share. Since then the financial news regarding imminent TV deals with FOX (over the air) and with international partnering has gotten better and better. It is up about 10% since I purchased it. No way I would have put a big stake in it but with 20-20 hindsight it is easy to 2nd guess that.

I owned WWE back when it was paying a 10% dividend. Then they dropped it down and I lost interest and sold. A well run company from what I remember.

I haven't been following the stock price but I have followed WWE(WWF) as a fan for 30+ years. They are a growing internatonal company. Just got almost $2 Billion worth of TV broadcasting fees. The price may be a bit high right now but it is still worth considering for a long term investment.
