Company Profile: Formerly known as EM.Sport Media AG, Constantin Medien AG is a German a media company.

The company also has a film unit, responsible for movies like Resident Evil and The Three Musketeers.
Current Share Price: 1.52 euros (Sept. 16)Marcus' Take: Marcus is a fan of Constantin Medien as the company markets the UEFA Champions League in Europe thanks to its 49% stake in Highlight Communications. Marcus expects Constantin Medien and Highlight to eventually merge, which could create value for shareholders. "Soccer fanatics are everywhere in Europe," he says. "This company has the global broadcast rights. It's a very powerful asset to have. Sports rights have been exploding in value. So you have sports rights, broadcasting, a film library and movie studio, and we're paying less than six times earnings. Not only that, you get a strong balance sheet and good management. -- Written by Robert Holmes in Boston.
