The article focuses on the buy rating of Reif Cohen, Merrill Lynch & Co. media analyst, on News Corp.'s stock in the U.S. Cohen cites that she expects the operating income growth of the company to be about 2 percent in the first quarter versus its past growth of 33 percent which is due to timing issues regarding profitability of some of its films in the later quarter of 2006. As a result, she lowered her estimates of the company's earnings-per-share on stock from 26 cents to 19 cents.
