06:28 EDTCBSViacom downgraded to Sell from Buy at Citigroup
Citigroup downgraded Viacom (VIAB) two notches to Sell from Buy and lowered its price target for shares to $62 from $88. Citi says its new price target assumes a 50% probability that DISH (DISH) drops Viacom's channels. The firm sees 30% share downside risk should such an event occur. Citi lists two potential M&A deals that could offset the downside risk: Viacom acquiring CBS (CBS), which it feels would be neutral for the stock, or another media firm acquiring Viacom, which it feels could drive 20% upside for Viacom shares. Citi assumes a 10% probability of Viacom getting bought out.
