IAC/InterActiveCorp. (IAC) has completed the distribution of its 80.7% stake in Match Group, Inc. (MTCH) aftermarket on June 30, 2020, resulting in the boost to MTCH's free float (which precludes a potential inclusion on the S&P 500 Index) and the continued execution of IAC's "anti-conglomerate" philosophy when it comes to its investments. We're booking our strong profits in IAC and we recommend investors to continue to hold MTCH for long-term benefits.

Meanwhile, NELES (Parent) looks fully valued. Read on for more on their first day's performance.

With the suspension of all sporting events and shows, this had an obvious effect on the revenue stream for both MSG Sports Corp. (MSGS) and MSG Entertainment Corp (MSGE). However, with esports the next leg of growth for MSGS and MSGE building the futuristic venue in Las Vegas, The Sphere, we see the current discount to their asset based valuation (MSGS - highly-valued NY Knicks and Rangers and MSGE’s legendary venues) an opportunity for investors to enter.
