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.

The firm believes Transocean needs to eliminate or materially reduce its dividend to weather the cyclical downturn, which could last an estimated 1-3 years. UBS maintains its Neutral rating and lowers its price target to $28 from $38 on Transocean shares.

06:13 EDTRIGTransocean says 'market pause' has evolved into 'cyclical downturn'
On its Q3 earnings conference call, Transocean CEO Steve Newman said that the "market pause" has evolved into a "cycnical downturn." He commented that the industry has been through these downturns before and "Transocean is well positioned to managed through this one." Newman also said the decline in oil prices observed over the last three months could "temporarily exacerbate" the offshore rig supply imbalance that has already resulted in day rate and utilization pressures and potentially delay the cyclical recovery. Newman said his long-term bullish view of offshore drilling remains "intact."
