Only 4 Christian Publicly-Traded Companies out of 14,000 Firms

30 Oct

Out of 14,000 public cos’ only three of these are Christian media companies (meaning that the  products and services they offer are faith-based). Those four firms are: Salem Communications (Nasdaq: SALM); Light Media (OTC: LGMH); and Left Behind Games (OTC: LFBG).  The 4th Christian Publicly-Company is: Zion Oil (Amex: ZN).

Wikipedia: The size of the world stock market was estimated at about $36.6 trillion at the start of October 2008.[1] The total world derivatives market has been estimated at about $791 trillion face or nominal value,[2] 11 times the size of the entire world economy.[3]

However, interestingly enough, there are an estimated 1.65 Billion Christians in the world, but only four (4) overtly-Christian publicly-traded companies, founded by four (4) Christian entrepreneurs. Google: “Christian Publicly-Traded Companies” and you will none. Google “Christian Venture Capital” and you will find none.  Is this due to indifference or inadequate knowledge and understanding of the power of the public-markets and access to global capital? Due to Christian investors support Christian publicly-traded companies?

Take for example: Salem Webnetwork claims millions of followers, for example, but its stock is hovering below $3.00 per share and on most days trades little if no shares at all.  Arguably, Salem is the most powerful Christian media company on the planet, but it’s market capitalization is currently less than $50 million.  Why for instance are very few persons or supporters of Salem Communications conservative Christian dominant positioning apparently have little appetite for following and supporting its stock? Left Behind Games a tiny OTC company claims or claimed at one time to have or had thousands of shareholders, which by comparison dwarfs Salem’s Shareholder base, while Salem Web Network claims millions of unique visitors who are clearly unaware or not supporting/buying its publicly-traded stock.  There are Christian or so-called Socially-Responsible Investing Funds or Groups (a growing category), and it would be interesting to know as to what level these funds or groups encourage investors to support these Christian Publicly-Traded companies, if even any at all.

This commentary is to bring light to this, in such a way, that will hopefully correct the issue which must be: Lack of Awareness, or Christian investors generally not knowing that these four Christian Puhlicly-Traded companies even exist. HotChristianStocks.com will work to change this, and bring greater light to the works of these companies, and maybe encourage more companies to join them in this exclusive club. We will publish (publicly-available) news regularly, as well as commentary in hopes of helping to educate and inform.

Light Media Replaces Citadel Broadcasting on RBR-TVBR Stock Index PDF Print E-mail

Light Media (PINKSHEETS: LGMH), Inspirational Media Specialist, announced today that it has officially replaced Citadel Broadcasting, (Citadel being recently acquired by Cumulus for $2.6bln), as the 20th publicly-traded radio/media conglomerate in the United States, out of 14,000 publicly-traded firms, joining the ranks of such media behemoths as Radio-One, Beasley Broadcasting and Salem Communications on the prestigious RBR-TVBR Media Stock Index. Please see chart for a full listing of RBR/TVBR Media Stocks, or click the following link to view online: http://www.rbr.com/media-news/stocks/three-day-winning-streak-snapped-9-28-11.html. Light Media effectively replaced Citadel Broadcasting on the RBR-TVBR Media Stocks Index on September 28, 2011.

“RBR-TVBR is read and followed by media executives and investors nationwide, as a key source of information for radio and tv trends and opportunities. With BIA/Kelsey Media Research Group estimating Radio Revenues to grow to $16.6 Billion by 2014, Light Media believes that its strategy to acquire additional radio stations and create synergy via integrated and diverse media platforms bodes well for the future; and replacing Citadel on the RBR-TVBR Media Stock Index serves as a key stepping stone for stock tier upgrade to (OTCQB). Light Media is also exploring a program whereby the company would buy back shares (public float: 7,050,000 shares), at anytime, to ensure consistency between price per share and asset/market value. These goals are on par with the company’s focus to create shareholder value and limit dilution, via a steadfast and focused plan of investing and reinvesting strategically to build and grow what is now the 20th publicly-traded radio/media conglomerate in the USA and newest addition to the RBR-TVBR Media Stock Index,” stated Danny Wilson, CEO of Light Media.
