07:43 EDTCBSTime Warner still in play after rejecting 21st Century Fox, Bloomberg says
Even if Time Warner (TWX) successfully fends off 21st Century Fox (FOXA), analysts from Needham, RBC and others say the company is now a target and CEO Jeff Bewkes’s plan to keep the company independent will probably only last so long, according to Bloomberg's "Real M&A" column. Needham says it is possible that Verizon (VZ) or an Internet company could step in with offers, while Wedbush analysts contended that pursuing a merger with CBS (CBS) could serve as another way to defend itself from Fox, the report noted.

12:21 EDTCBSCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link
