Really, I’ve lost count of the number of people I’ve spoken to throughout the years that don’t know who the man on the right is. Do you? Frank Sinatra? Burt Lancaster? Bernie Ecclestone, maybe? None of them, I’m afraid. Ok, here is another try. Have you ever heard of companies such as Expedia (EXPE), Lending Tree (TREE), Lionsgate (LGF) or QVC (QVCA), the home shopping network? Good! Well, the man on the right has interests in all of them. His name is John C. Malone (76) and one of the few media moguls that control a lot of what you hear and see but you may never have heard of. He is a total value creator.
So, who is the greatest investor? We tracked the performance of the two, and came up with some very interesting findings.
