Please Unlock Gannett's Value
Steady improvement from an operational standpoint over the past two years has not translated into stock price performance. I think the blame falls on the shoulders of a management team that has failed to communicate effectively with Wall Street and investors. The shares remain extremely inexpensive, and it is time for management to take the steps necessary to unlock Gannett's value.
