The $110M film was scored A- in CinemaScore polls, holds a RottenTomatoes rating of 82%, and grossed $12.4M in international territories. Meanwhile, Sony's (SNE) "The Magnificent Seven" added $15.7M in its second weekend, representing a drop of 55%.

SunTrust sees 'limited' list of Twitter suitors, says activist action unlikely
SunTrust analyst Robert Peck reiterated his belief that Twitter (TWTR) is unlikely to sell itself in 2016 in a new note to investors, but noted that investors have asked him who would be interested if Twitter were open to a sale. While giving his opinion on potential acquirers - which he sees possibly including Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), Disney (DIS), Fox (FOXA), and Alibaba (BABA) - Peck said the company's high price and "unique" asset limit the potential buyers and gave his view that a PE buyer is highly unlikely given the company's lack of free cash flow. Additionally, Peck thinks activist action at Twitter seems "extremely unlikely" despite "unsubstantiated investor conjecture" and media reports. The analyst keeps Neutral rating and $18 price target on Twitter shares.

Consumer satisfaction with competitors has caught up to Netflix, says UBS

The analyst, who added that Netflix's "pricing power remains unclear" based on the firm's survey work, keeps a Neutral rating and $92 price target on Netflix shares.

Lionsgate's Deepwater Horizon tracking for soft opening weekend
Piper Jaffray analyst Stan Meyers says Lionsgate's Deepwater Horizon film is tracking to open lighter than expected. Deepwater was expected to be one of top three films for Lionsgate in FY17 with initial domestic box office expectations in $80M-plus territory, but consensus expectations over the past few months have come down to the $60M level, Meyers tells investors in a research note. He notes the film is tracking to open in the $16M-$20M range this weekend, slightly below the $20M expectations. Meyers expects "some near-term headwinds" for Lionsgate shares, but he sees an attractive entry point ahead of the Starz integration. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Lionsgate with a $30 price target.

The film, which could be profitable for Lionsgate (LGF) after only one weekend at the box office if his estimate is correct, could be the start of a "notable streak" for the company's studio, Miller tells investors. The analyst, who added that he thinks the Starz (STRZA) deal will close by November 30 at the latest, keeps a Buy rating and $30 price target on Lionsgate shares.

August NPD video game software sales rose 1%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says August NPD video game software sales were up 1% year-over-year, driven by Sony (SNE) publishing No Man's Sky and Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL 17. The data are most positive for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), which continued to benefit from sell-through of incremental title Overwatch, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes the monthly numbers are largely irrelevant for Take-Two (TTWO), since NBA 2K17 is due out in September, and GameStop (GME), since the company announced October quarter guidance at the end of August.

Further, the analyst expects largely unchanged fiscal year guide, and anticipates improving software growth in the second half of the year, driven by easier comps and a next-generation console footprint that he believes is over 60M units.

Citi hopes Disney does not acquire Twitter
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet lays out four reasons for why he doesn't like Disney (DIS) pursuing an acquisition of Twitter (TWTR). Going back 15 years, the analyst can't think of a single web-based property that was successfully acquired by a traditional media firm. Two, he calls Twitter trends "troubling." Three, Bazinet estimates a cash offer would lower Disney's stock by $5 per share while an equity offer would drop its stock by $9. Four, the analyst feels it is unclear how Disney's content will help Twitter. Bazinet thinks both Yahoo (YHOO) and Twitter lost "significant money" when they streamed NFL content over the web. The analyst hopes Twitter is acquired by somebody other than Disney. He keeps a Buy rating on Disney shares. Both Loop Capital and Mizuho this morning downgraded Twitter to sell ratings.

Citi sees 40% downside in Twitter with no takeover bid
Citi analyst Mark May believes Twitter's (TWTR) risk/reward skews to the downside following the recent rally in the shares. A buyout of the company carries "strategic rationale for certain companies," but Twitter's "struggles and steep valuation" make a deal at a meaningful premium less likely, May tells investors in a research note. A takeover at $26 per share looks aggressive, May contends. He believes the stock could retest the lows of late May, representing 40% downside from current levels, should an acquisition offer not materialize. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on Twitter with a $16 price target. The shares closed yesterday up 75c to $23.37 following reports that Disney (DIS) may be joining the list of potential acquires that already includes Alphabet (GOOG) and Salesforce (CRM).

The announcement language suggests pricing "somewhere just above" that given to AT&T (T) and the duration of the deal validates the longevity of the patent portfolio, said Auty, who keeps an Overweight rating on Rovi shares.
