09:59 EDTCHTRCharter may have interest in Cablevision 'at some point,' says Detwiler
Detwiler Fenton believes there is truth to last week's reports of Charter (CHTR) being in talks to acquire Bright House Networks. In addition, the firm says its checks indicate Charter may have interest in buying Suddenlink Communications and Cablevision (CVC) "at some point" as a part of a lager acquisition strategy. Detwiler adds Charter's potential deal strategy assumes Comcast's (CMCSA) bid for Time Warner (TWC) wins regulatory approval. Should the deal not get approved, Detwiler believes Charter will turn its attention back to Time Warner.
