Liberty Global Inc. Research Report

US cable TV giant Liberty Global Inc. recently announced its acquisition of
British cable TV operator, Virgin Media Inc., in a $16 billion deal. This
acquisition will be one of the largest cable deals of all time. By acquiring
Virgin Media, Europe's largest cable market, Liberty Global will be able to
challenge British Sky Broadcasting for dominance in Europe. Liberty Global is
known as America's King of Cable, now it is also gaining the title in Europe.
According to Liberty Global's president and chief executive, Mike Fries,
"Virgin Media will add significant scale and a first-class management team in
Europe's largest and most dynamic media and communications market." After the
deal, the company will be serving 25 million customers in 14 countries,
overtaking the world's leading cable TV operator, Comcast. American media
giants are taking advantage of stagnant advertising revenue in Europe by
moving into the territory. The acquisition of Virgin Media is just part of
Liberty Global's expansion in Europe. The company has also bought two German
cable TV operators to build its operations in Europe's largest economy. Even
before the deal, Liberty Global is already known as the largest cable operator
in Europe, with 18.4 million subscribers. The company was put into that
position by going on a decade-long acquisition spree spanning 11 countries in
the continent. Analysts say that this European expansion will give Liberty
Global a more focused strategy in a market with high disposable income.
Furthermore, the Virgin Media acquisition may strengthen the company's
superior asset portfolio diversity and growth prospects compared with its
rivals. After announcing the deal, Liberty Global reported a 23 percent
increase in its Q4 operating income, and 9 percent increase for the whole year
of 2012. The deal is subject to majority shareholder approvals from both
companies and is expected to close in Q2 2013. The Full Research Report on
Liberty Global Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and

Charter Communications, Inc. Research Report

Also playing in the cable TV M&A field is Charter Communications, Inc. Rumors
have been going around that the company may be preparing for a deal with Time
Warner Cable. Analysts see this stock as a possible acquisition target,
marking it as undervalued. Earlier in December 2012, analysts have already
predicted that Time Warner is likely to buy Charter Communications. The former
company has had difficulty maintaining video subscriptions due to increasing
competition from telcos and satellite TV services, and the latter company is a
likely candidate to be purchased. Losing more than 20 percent of its
subscriber over the past decade, it will need more funds to improve on that
record. The Full Research Report on Charter Communications, Inc. - including
full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to

Monster Beverage Corp Research Report

As the maker of the Monster Energy, one of the questioned energy drinks
products, Monster released a statement contesting the agency report and
calling it "highly misleading." The company explained that the DAWN report
contains little to no information about the association between the hospital
emergencies reported and the consumption of energy drinks. Monster also noted
that Monster Energy drinks contain even less caffeine than regular
coffeehouse-brewed coffee and that about 8 billion cans of the energy drinks
have been sold and "safely consumed" in the U.S. and around the world. Monster
is set out to roll more new products this year, along with expansion in the
Asian and Central American market. Addressing its adrenaline-pumped market,
Monster continuously implements its brand recognition formula by sponsoring
extreme sports events, rock concerts and tours, and affiliations with athletes
and personalities. The Full Research Report on Monster Beverage Corp -

PepsiCo, Inc. Research Report

PepsiCo is a global leader in the food and beverage industries and carrier of
22 brands, continues to dazzle the marketing arena by associating the brand
with famous sports and entertainment events such as the GRAMMYS, NFL and the
Super Bowl. PepsiCo also implemented crowdsourcing in the recent fan-made
video advertisements for Pepsi Cola and Doritos. PepsiCo's line of AMP energy
drinks is also among the products questioned and requested by the Food and
Drugs Administration to provide information about the caffeine and stimulant
contents in the drinks. Yacktman Focused Fund recently purchased 9.41% of the
shares of PepsiCo, with approximate prices from $68.02 to $71.19. With the
brand's impeccable international presence along with a record of annual
average earnings growth of 9.8% for the past decade, it looks the recent
scrutiny proved to be a minor disruption. The Full Research Report on PepsiCo,
