LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox Inc
For the quarter that ended in September, Fox posted adjusted earnings-per-share of 33 cents, down from 38 cents a year earlier. Wall Street analysts on average had expected 35 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Fox shares dropped 2 percent after hours to $33.40, down from their earlier $34.09 close on Nasdaq.
"They're a little weak but nothing material," said Brett Harriss, an analyst with Gabelli & Company.
Fox recorded $7.06 billion of total revenue for the three months ending September 30, an 18 percent increase from the same period a year earlier.
In June, News Corp separated into a publishing company and the TV and film unit that became Fox.
