11:01 EDTAMCXTV networks seen beating expectations thanks to strong ad market
The outlook for television networks is positive and investors should overweight the sector, research firm Pacific Crest wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves recommended that investors own the shares of TV network owners 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX) and AMC Networks (AMCX). The companies' results should beat expectations, driven by a strong U.S. advertising market and stable pay TV subscriptions, he forecast. Moreover, given their "low elasticity, limited exposure to emerging markets and credit-fueled funding, and historically low valuations," the networks look "highly defensible," the analyst stated. Based on viewership data, 21st Century Fox, AMC and Scripps Networks (SNI) are best positioned to increase their ad revenue going forward, Hargreaves believes. Meanwhile, Fox and Scripps should benefit from strong viewership trends for sporting events, contended the analyst, who kept Overweight ratings on 21st Century Fox, Time Warner and AMC Networks, but maintained a Sector Weight rating on Scripps. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Hargreaves also kept a Sector Weight rating on CBS (CBS), but he recommended owning the stock in the near-term. The company's ad revenue should rise this year, driven by the Super Bowl and political spending, and its fourth quarter results could beat expectations on the back of strong ad revenue and content sales, the analyst predicted. Furthermore, CBS's content is well-positioned to be part of any significant bundle, and the stock's risk/reward ratio is positive, he wrote. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Class A Fox shares slid 3%, AMC gave back 4.4%, Time Warner retreated 2.7%, and CBS and Scripps each fell about 4%.
