13:34 EDTCBSEarnings preview: Advertising trends will be scrutinized in CBS's Q1
CBS (CBS) is expected to report Q1 earnings after the market close on Tuesday, May 1 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30pm ET. Analysts are looking for EPS of 44c on revenue of $3.78B. The consensus range is 38c-48c for EPS, and $3.69B-$3.89B for revenue, according to First Call. Positives for the media company's quarter may be seen coming from political ad spending. At an industry conference in late February, CEO Les Moonves said Q1 advertising trends are "good," substantially better than Q4. Revenue boosts may be also seen coming from from digital streaming and retransmission. A possible negative for the quarter may be seen from a slowdown in economic growth and any impact that has on corporate advertising spending. On April 9, Citigroup downgraded CBS to Neutral from Buy citing valuation and kept a $35 price target for the stock. On April 18, JPMorgan raised its estimates for CBS, citing steady ad trends and contributions from non-advertising streams. The firm expects the company to report solid Q1 results and raised its price target for shares to $38 from $35.

The FCC is pushing for media companies to submit details of their programming agreements with Comcast (CMCSA) ahead of the company's merger with Time Warner Cable (TWC), reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing a person familiar with the matter, the FCC believes the documents contain information that would be relevant in its review. Officials from media companies including CBS (CBS), 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), Discovery (DISCA), Time Warner (TWX) and Viacom (VIA;VIAB) met with FCC staff earlier this month to voice concerns about releasing highly confidential materials.
