Stock market investments: Rising newsprint costs weigh on Gannett’s earnings

Gannett Co. Inc., New York symbol GCI, reported revenue of $1.33 billion in the three months ended June 26, 2011. That’s down 2.2%, from $1.37 billion a year earlier.

The company is seeing lower advertising revenue at its 82 newspapers, including its flagship paper, USA Today. That’s mainly because its 2010 revenue benefited from advertising tied to the U.S. midterm elections. However, the company’s revenue from its digital operations, such as CareerBuilder.com and newspaper web sites, rose 12.6% in the quarter.

Earnings fell 13.5 %, to $151.5 million, or $0.62 per share, from $175.2 million, or $0.73 per share. The company’s publishing earnings were hurt by a 9.3% increase in newsprint costs. To cut costs, the company announced in June 2011 that it will cut 700 jobs, or 2% of its workers.

Gannett is a dividend paying stock. Its annual rate of $0.32 a share yields 2.3%. The company also plans to resume buying back its own shares.
