Here is what the fund specifically said about Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHTR) in its Q2, 2022 investment letter:

"Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHTR) and Comcast, the Fund’s investment in the US cable industry, is an example of us leaning into fear. These investments have underperformed in the last year but still trade above the Fund’s cost basis. The industry has been plagued by fears of video cord cutting, and competition from 5G and Fiber to the Home. This allowed us to buy and to continue to hold both Comcast and Charter Communications. These businesses trade at what we believe are reasonable valuations and we think should have attractive growth in free cash flow over the next decade. We expect that they will allocate that free cash flow in the best interest of shareholders, given that they are controlled by owner-operators."
