06:45 EDTCMCSA, DISCA, TWC, SNIComcast deal could spur wave of consolidation, NY Times says
Comcast's (CMCSA) proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable (TWC) could spur "a frenzy" of M&A deals as cable networks, and cable operators could look to combine, The New York Times reported Friday night. Last month Discovery (DISCA) was considering buying Scripps Networks (SNI), but decided not to pull the trigger, partly because Discovery felt it was already large enough to deal with Comcast, the newspaper stated, citing unnamed sources. But if Comcast gets much larger, cable networks may need to consolidate, the newspaper quoted "a person with knowledge of Discovery’s thinking" as saying. Reference Link

06:36 EDTSNI, DISCABernstein 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.
