Weitz Investment Large Cap Equity Fund stated the following regarding Charter Communications, Inc. in its first quarter 2024 investor letter:

“Charter Communications, Inc. and Liberty Broadband Corp. (LBRDK) were the Fund’s primary quarterly detractors. Charter’s stock fell sharply as the company reported worse-than[1]expected broadband subscriber losses, introduced multi-year capital spending plans that were higher than anticipated, and disclosed that five million customers participated in a federal subsidy program that would not be funded beyond April. While that’s a near-term triple whammy, we think these issues push out rather than derail our investment thesis. We added more Charter shares during the quarter to refill and reshape the Fund’s Charter-related exposure.”
