In the Q4 2020 Investor Letter, the fund highlighted a few stocks and Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. (NYSE:MSGE) is one of them. Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. (NYSE:MSGE) is an entertainment holding company. In the last three months, Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. (NYSE:MSGE) stock gained 38% and on March 12th it had a closing price of $106.25. Here is what the fund said:

“MSGE is a real estate owner/operator with core properties at the epicenter of COVID (NYC and Las Vegas). Their largest assets include Madison Square Garden (the arena, associated air rights and the attached theatre), the Tao Group and the Radio City Rockettes show. In addition, they are in the process of building a large event space called The Sphere in Las Vegas that connects to the Venetian. Business is not going well now as they are effectively closed to outside customers. What protects them is an extremely healthy balance sheet with plenty of cash, limited debt, and a reduced corporate cost structure.

These assets have real value, a strong franchise and customer interest. People will attend sporting events, concerts, and shows again. Their strong financial position will allow them to get to the other side of the COVID canyon.

We purchased our shares at a price that implied a 50% discount to fair value (implying a 100% potential return). While the stock is up 30+% since then, it remains cheap. As a long-term investor I wouldn’t mind seeing it go down as I’d like to be buying more of it at a cheaper price.”
