06:37 EDTCBSCBS, DISH share downside limited with blackout, says Citigroup
Citigroup sees limited share downside for both CBS (CBS) and DISH (DISH) should a blackout result in the companies not renewing their carriage agreement, which expires today. Citi notes shares of CBS are down 3% since the press started reporting about the tenuous negotiations. It estimates CBS' equity value could fall 2% with a blackout, thus it believes the impact is already priced in. Further, Citi sees a minimal impact to DISH from a potential CBS blackout. The firm keeps Buy ratings on both stocks.
06:28 EDTPBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link
