Time Warner (TWX) 2008 Guidance Weak

Time Warner is forecasting only 7%-9% EBITDA growth for 2008, versus the 17% growth in 2007 and the company’s usual “double-digit” growth targets.

The company also puts 2008 free cash flow at $3.6 billion or better–a sharp decline from 2007’s $5 billion and 2006’s $4.7 billion.  The year-over-year drop is the result of a boost in TWX’s tax rate to “full taxpayer” status.  Google’s free cash flow has now exceeded Time Warner’s.
