06:36 EDTSNIBernstein cuts Disney, Time Warner with TV entering 'structural decline'
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded his rating on both Disney (DIS) and Time Warner (TWX) saying the U.S. television industry is entering a period of "prolonged structural decline." With viewers moving away from ad-supported platforms to non-ad-supported, media companies with the least exposure to U.S. advertising represent the most favorable investments, Juenger tells investors in a 48-page research note on the Media sector. The analyst moved both companies to a Market Perform rating from Outperform, and lowered his price target for Disney to $114 from $125 and for Time Warner to $90 from $101. He called the downgrade of Time Warner a "very close call" as his new price target still represents 15% upside from current levels. Share performance in the entire Media sector will be challenged until the content owners take steps to "reclaim on-demand viewing" from streaming services like Netflix (NFLX) and use it to protect affiliate fees, Juenger argues. His Outperform-rated names are Nielsen (NLSN) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA). Along with Time Warner and Disney, the analyst has Market Perform ratings on AMC Networks (AMCX), CBS (CBS), Scripps Networks (SNI) and Discovery (DISCA). Juenger has an Underperform rating on Viacom (VIAB). Wells Fargo on Tuesday also downgraded Disney to Market Perform. Piper Jaffray this morning told investors that the recent pullback in shares of AMC Networks brings a "great" entry point into the name.
05:18 EDTEGOEldorado Gold provides Greece update
Eldorado Gold confirms that Hellas Gold S.A., a Greek subsidiary of the company, has been made aware of a notification from Greece's Ministry of Energy suspending the technical studies pertaining to the Skouries and Olympias projects in Halkidiki, northern Greece. The suspension is based on testwork completed on the Olympias Phase III flash smelting process. This pilot scale test work was completed at Outotec's comprehensive metallurgical and smelting facility in Finland, while the Ministry contends that it should have been done at site in Halkidiki. The testwork is a part of the technical studies pertaining to both the Skouries and Olympias projects. The technical studies form the basis of a number of other permits required by the Company in order to proceed with the development and construction of the Skouries and Olympias projects. The company is reviewing the notification of the Ministry with its technical and legal teams and will take legal action.
