Investors tend to focus on the negatives of the media sector, such as declining print publishing and free to air television. But there are plenty of growth stocks out there too which can be bought at bargain prices.
Finally, a "hidden gem". Aspermont Limited (ASX: ASP) is the leading information portal for the mining sector. It owns flagship publications such as Mining Journal. The group has successfully transitioned from print to digital media. Aspermont's subscription metrics are very strong, and advertising revenues are picking up now that the sector is in much better health. There is growth yet to come from Events, and expansion into Agriculture. Tightly held, Aspermont is capitalised at just $18m.
