This is in large part due to not being able to charge for online subscriptions. While providing their services free has allowed them to maintain their client base and capitalize from ad revenue, the subscription based revenue stream has dried up considerably. Visit www.stockcall.com/ to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

2011 may prove to be rosier, however. Some industry players are planning on launching online pay-based media outlets in the near future, and many have reported increased print media revenues recently. Due to the recession, companies in the industry also learned how to increase their margins which is carrying forward positively now that a recovery is underway. While many newspapers are still reporting losses, an increase in print and TV revenue coupled with the possible implementation of a new revenue stream bodes well moving into the New Year.

For the third quarter 2010, the U.S. largest newspaper publisher and owner of USA Today, Garnett Co. posted flat sales of $1.31 billion as a shortfall in print advertising negatively impacted a rise in broadcast advertizing. The newspaper publisher, however, delivered a surge in profit to $ 101.4 million for the quarter.
