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.

10:43 EDTCBSBernstein downgrades Discovery, Viacom, citing 'structural decline' in TV
Research firm Bernstein sees strong evidence that audiences of ad-supported TV have entered a period of "structural decline." The firm cut its rating on Discovery (DISCA), the owner of the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet cable stations, and Viacom (VIA,VIAB), which owns MTV and and Nickelodeon. The firm also cut its price target on CBS (CBS). WHAT'S NEW: Noting that audiences for ad-supported TV have fallen by unprecedented amounts for four months, Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger added that consumption of subscription video on demand, or SVOD, services continue to grow. Meanwhile, TV networks are seeing increased competition from Internet websites for ad dollars, limiting the ability of the networks to raise ad prices, Juenger stated. The profit margins and return on investment of content owners are likely to decline over time, the analyst believes. He downgraded Discovery to Market Perform from Outperform and set a $37 price target on the stock, and cut Viacom to Underperform from Market Perform, placing a $71 price target on that stock. Juenger reduced his price target on CBS to $55 from $60 and kept a Market Perform rating on the shares. He kept Outperform ratings on 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), and Time Warner (TWX), saying that those are least affected by the trend, as they are less dependent than their peers on the American TV ad market and have a large amount of sports programming. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Discovery lost 0.6% to $31.81, Viacom class A shares gained 0.6% to $70.09, CBS fell 0.7% to $51.48, Twenty-First Century Fox class A shares lost 0.5% to $34.75, Time Warner fell 0.5% to $77.69 and Disney was flat near $90 per share.
