Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Nine Entertainment commands a strong position in the Australian free-to-air television industry, with number-two ratings and revenue share positions.

Bears

Nine Entertainment's recent increase in ratings and revenue share has come at the expense of Ten Network. There is a risk of mean-reversion as Ten Network recovers from its current all-time low position.
