FCC relaxes proposed broadband consumer privacy rules, WSJ reports

Federal telecommunications regulators offered a dialed-down version of their broadband consumer privacy rules after significant criticism of a prior version from internet providers and other firms, the Wall Street Journal reports. The new FCC regulations essentially would require broadband internet providers, such as Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) and Verizon (VZ) to obtain consumer approval before marketing sensitive information, such as a customer's web-browsing history, to a third party, the report added.

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.

Concerns about Frontier Communications leverage overdone, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that some investors have expressed concern about Frontier's leverage ratio. Specifically, the firm says there are some worries that if Frontier has difficulty integrating the Verizon (VZ) assets it purchased, it may trigger bank covenants. However, Wells says that Frontier's synergy realization and subscription outlook have improved since Q2. Wells adds that the company's dividend is "very secure neat-term," and it keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Yahoo hack is probably not a material adverse change, says SunTrust
After Yahoo (YHOO) reported that over 500M of its accounts had been hacked, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck thinks that the news is probably not a material adverse change, or MAC, that would jeopardize the company's acquisition by Verizon (VZ). He notes that the sales contract says that a MAC will not be triggered by "any failure by Yahoo to meet its internal or published projections, budgets, plans, or forecasts of its revenues, earnings, or other financial performance or results of operations." The analyst says that the hack "may be manageable," since a majority of the victims could be e-mail users who are sticky. He keeps a Neutral rating on Yahoo.

BofA thinks Verizon deal stays on track despite Yahoo data breach
Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post said that Yahoo's (YHOO) disclosure of the massive data breach impacting over 500M of its users is clearly a negative for the company that could result in email account closures, but he does not anticipate a major impact on Yahoo's business related to this breach, citing as evidence the fact that he is not aware of any significant business impairment or financial liability related to security breaches at LinkedIn (LNKD) in 2012 and at eBay (EBAY) in 2014. Post adds that the Target (TGT) data breach, which did include credit card info, is not directly comparable to Yahoo's breach. For Verizon (VZ) to back out of its acquisition agreement, Post thinks the company would need to assume Yahoo acted in bad faith during negotiations and that the Yahoo asset is impaired or comes with significant liability, neither of which he sees as being the case. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Yahoo and bumped his target on the shares to $55 from $53, citing an increased price target on Alibaba (BABA) that a peer at the firm recently set.

DISH renewal a major positive for Rovi, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty said he views Rovi's (ROVI) newly-announced 10-year contract renewal with DISH Networks (DISH) as a "major positive" that should help Rovi's position to complete its renewal with Comcast (CMCSA), which is the only top 10 pay-TV provider not currently under contract with the company. 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.

Piper Jaffray confident in Comcast signing with Rovi
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson notes that Rovi (ROVI) announced a 10-year renewal with DISH (DISH) and while the terms were not disclosed, economics should be similar to recent deals, likely in the range of 21c-22c per subscriber per month. With DISH in the fold, nine of the ten major U.S. TV service providers now license Rovi guide patents, the analyst said, with Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) remaining the lone holdout. Olson believes discussions with Comcast are at the economic level, and is confident in Comcast signing, potentially in the first half of 2017. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $27 price target on Rovi's shares.

Consumer satisfaction with competitors has caught up to Netflix, says UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson said that the firm's Evidence Lab survey indicated that U.S. consumer satisfaction with Amazon Prime Video (AMZN) and Hulu - the joint venture owned by Time Warner (TWX), Comcast (CMCSA), 21st Century Fox (FOXA), and Disney (DIS) - has now caught up to Netflix (NFLX), advising that investors should "continue to monitor competitive threats closely" as Netflix leads the category but demand for consumer media time, attention and wallet has intensified. 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.

Comcast should report 'strong' Q3 results, says Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Jeffrey Wlodarczak expects Comcast to report "strong" Q3 results, with flat video subscriber additions, a 330,000 increase in data subscribers, an Olympics-driven 17% increase in NBC revenue ,and a total, slightly below consensus EBITDA gain of 7%. The analyst says that the stock's valuation is "very attractive." He raised his price target on the name to $90 from $81 to reflect a transition to year-end 2017 estimates and reiterates a Buy rating.

Comcast remains 'most attractive' large-cap, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan says Comcast remains the "most attractive" large-cap for remainder of the year, with its shares offering attractive upside despite the "strong performance" year to date. The company's unsurpassed broadband and public Wi-Fi networks indicate "strong sub trends" in 2016-2017, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Furthermore, he points out that its advertising revenues are "strong" helped by Olympics and political advertising as well as Cable. Oppenheimer has an Outperform rating and $70 price target on the shares.
