06:36 EDTTWX, DISBernstein cuts Disney, Time Warner with TV entering 'structural decline'
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded his rating on both Disney (DIS) and Time Warner (TWX) saying the U.S. television industry is entering a period of "prolonged structural decline." With viewers moving away from ad-supported platforms to non-ad-supported, media companies with the least exposure to U.S. advertising represent the most favorable investments, Juenger tells investors in a 48-page research note on the Media sector. The analyst moved both companies to a Market Perform rating from Outperform, and lowered his price target for Disney to $114 from $125 and for Time Warner to $90 from $101. He called the downgrade of Time Warner a "very close call" as his new price target still represents 15% upside from current levels. Share performance in the entire Media sector will be challenged until the content owners take steps to "reclaim on-demand viewing" from streaming services like Netflix (NFLX) and use it to protect affiliate fees, Juenger argues. His Outperform-rated names are Nielsen (NLSN) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA). Along with Time Warner and Disney, the analyst has Market Perform ratings on AMC Networks (AMCX), CBS (CBS), Scripps Networks (SNI) and Discovery (DISCA). Juenger has an Underperform rating on Viacom (VIAB). Wells Fargo on Tuesday also downgraded Disney to Market Perform. Piper Jaffray this morning told investors that the recent pullback in shares of AMC Networks brings a "great" entry point into the name.

10:57 EDTNFLXT-Mobile promotion gives Netflix analyst greater confidence
UBS raised its price target on Netflix (NFLX) to $143 from $116, saying that its confidence in the company's outlook has improved following a promotion undertaken by T-Mobile (TMUS). WHAT'S NEW: T-Mobile recently began offering one free year of Netflix to consumers who switch to its wireless service, UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson wrote in a note to investors today. Mitchelson said that the promotion increases his confidence in the outlook for Netflix's U.S. business. Moreover, he believes that Netflix could "become a standard promotional tool" for wired and wireless broadband providers going forward. Although Netflix's stock "looks very expensive" in the near-term, the company's long-term opportunity is "extraordinary," given the potential size of the global streaming market, the analyst stated. Mitchelson's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. He raised his price target on the name to $143 from $116 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On August 10, research firm Stifel raised its price target on Netflix to $143 from $128, saying that the company's U.S. subscriber base can reach 80M by 2024, above the midpoint of its guidance. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Netflix fell 1% to $122.
10:42 EDTGOOGAnalyst increases Google price target by $265, upgrades to buy
Research firm Atlantic Equities upgraded Google (GOOG, GOOGL) to Overweight from Market Weight, saying that it is more upbeat on the company's search business, while YouTube is becoming a major growth driver. Additionally, the search giant's margins look poised to improve, the firm stated. Overweight is Atlantic's equivalent of a buy rating. WHAT'S NEW: Google's second quarter results showed that its search business is weathering the transition to mobile better than expected, Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell stated in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, YouTube's revenue, despite growing very quickly, can rise even further since it still accounts for just roughly 5% of global TV viewing outside of China, according to Cordwell. Additionally, the movement of ad dollars from conventional TV to online TV looks set to accelerate, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Google is undertaking initiatives that should cause the amount of money it obtains from each mobile click to rise, the analyst believes. Commenting on the outlook for Google's margins, Cordwell believes that they should be boosted by the cost cuts being undertaken by the company's new CFO. The analyst raised his price target on the company's Class A shares to $825 from $560. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Google's common stock rose $2.60 to $658.73 and its Class A shares rose $2.70 to $691.43.
