NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- With so much uncertainty in the stock market, it's nice to have a relatively stable area where investors can take long-term cover.
Lately, it's been dividend stocks. Now, we're told that run is over. I don't buy it. It's rarely, if ever, a bad time to make regular purchases of dividend payers, particularly in growth stocks. In fact, most investors should probably use the strategy as a major portfolio foundation.
That said, speaking directly to sectors, there's probably not a space with better visibility and relative certainty than media.
There are incredible existing and potential synergies between big media and empire building, particularly in sports programming and franchises.I have hammered it pretty hard: Buy big media stocks because/if they:
Control key 'appointment viewing'-type content, such as live sports programming;
Have a clear path to grow revenue by expanding that empire.
