11:05 EDTPPandora jumps following CEO share purchase
Shares of Pandora (P) are rallying after the company's CEO disclosed that he had bought 25,000 shares of the company's stock. WHAT'S NEW: In a regulatory filing last night, Pandora CEO Brian McAndrews disclosed that he had bought 25,000 of the company's shares on Wenesday at a price of $18.58 per share. McAndrews now owns over 475,000 shares of the stock, according to the filing. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt wrote that McAndrews purchased the stock using his own personal funds. According to the analyst, it is quite rare for CEOs to take such an action. McAndrews' purchase of the stock was "a strong vote of confidence" in the company, Devitt contended. He kept a $29 price target and Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pandora announced that it would hold a conference call next Tuesday to discuss proceedings before the Copyright Royalty Board. The board will determine the company's new royalty structure by December 2015, Devitt wrote. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Pandora climbed $2.30, or 12.5%, to $20.75.

10:43 EDTFOXABernstein 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.
