07:19 EDTVIA, AMCX, CBS, LMCA, FOXA, CVC, STRZAStarz could be M&A target after one year spin aniversary passes, NY Post says
Starz (STRZA) had been barred from holding sales talks for a year after being spun off by Liberty Media (LMCA), according to sources, but with the company set to mark one year as a standalone company next week there has been renewed gossip about whether it will seek a suitor this year, said the New York Post. The most obvious suitor for Starz is Cablevision (CVC) CEO James Dolan, who also controls AMC Networks (AMCX), but other potential partners that "continually crop up" include CBS (CBS), Viacom (VIA) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA), according to the report.

Stifel says that it has become more convinced of the logic of a potential merger between Lionsgate (LGF) and Starz (STRZA). The firm thinks that such a deal would positively impact Lionsgate's cah flow, increase its leverage capacity and expand its OTT content platform. The firm says that a combination of EPIX and Starz would be positive for both platforms, and it increased its price target on Lionsgate to $42 from $39 while keeping a Buy rating on the shares.

08:25 EDTCBSNetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.
