13:06 EDTDISEarnings Preview: Comcast reporting Q3 results as Time Warner deal progressing
Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) is set to report third quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, October 23, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Comcast is a diversified media company that operates the NBC family of networks and Universal Pictures, among other cable, internet, and voice services. On February 13, Comcast announced plans to merge with Time Warner Cable (TWC) in a deal valued at $45.2B. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 71c on revenue of $16.82B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-76c on revenue of $16.5B-$17.17B. LAST QUARTER: Comcast reported second quarter EPS of 75c against estimates for 72c, on revenue of $16.84B against estimates for $16.95B. TIME WARNER CABLE DEAL: On August 17, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Federal Communications Commission said that one issue it must decide as it reviewed the proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable is whether to allow Comcast to continue Time Warner Cable's arrangement to handle programming and technology acquisitions for cable operator Bright House Networks. On August 26, Engadget reported that Netflix (NFLX) filed a formal protest against the Time Warner Cable deal, saying that the merger would result in "serious public interest harm" and that a combined cable giant would have a huge amount of leverage over it and rivals such as Hulu. Hulu is a joint venture owned by Comcast along with Disney (DIS) and 21st Century Fox (FOX,FOXA). The New York Post reported on September 8 that Discovery (DISCA) believed Comcast's takeover of Time Warner Cable would give the merged entity an unfair advantage over programmers. That same day, Reuters said a proxy statement detailed that Time Warner Cable employees would split $416M if the merger deal with Comcast did not transpire. At the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference on September 10, Comcast said that it has made "a lot of progress" on the shareholder approval process for the Time Warner Cable deal, but expected the agreement to be finalized in early fiscal year 2015 versus the previous guidance of late 2014. The company expects the Time Warner Cable merger to generate $1.5B in operating expense synergies. On September 16, Comcast said at the Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference that it would reveal its capital plan at the close of the Time Warner Cable deal and noted at that time that "everything was on track" regarding the merger. The Wall Street Journal reported on September 30 that the FCC pushed for media companies to submit details of their programming agreements with Comcast prior to the Time Warner Cable deal. The FCC announced three days later that it extended time for the companies to file their replies on Comcast regarding the merger. On October 8, Comcast Shareholders approved stock issuance for the Time Warner Cable deal and the next day, Time Warner Cable stockholders approved the Comcast merger deal. STREET RESEARCH: Analysts remained fairly quiet on Comcast throughout the quarter. On September 9, UBS raised its price target on Comcast to $72 from $60 given its strong underlying fundamentals and the expected free cash flow accretion from the Time Warner Cable deal. The firm also said it expected Comcast to accelerate its stock buyback and increase its dividend. UBS kept its Buy rating on the stock. On October 17, Goldman Sachs said that Comcast was its top large cap pick into the earnings report given steady fundamentals, moderated expectations, and valuation. The firm maintained the stock with a Buy rating and a $64 price target. PRICE ACTION: Since the first day of trade following its Q2 report on July 22, shares of Comcast are down about 3.5%. Since it announced its deal with Time Warner Cable on February 13, shares of the media company have fallen just under 6%. In late-morning trade ahead of tomorrow’s Q3 report, shares of Comcast are down fractionally.
11:25 EDTCTXSCisco sale of VCE stake to have limited impact, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo thinks Cisco's (CSCO) decision to sell a portion of its stake in VCE is unlikely to have a material near-to-intermediate-term impact on the company's top line since it will continue to sell its networking and compute solutions to the joint venture. Wells says Cisco's "budding" partnerships with NetApp (NTAP), Microsoft (MSFT) and Citrix (CTXS) should more than offset any potential impacts from lessening ties to EMC (EMC) and VMware (VMW).
