CBS outlook positive says RBC Capital

RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall expects CBS (CBS) to report "squeaky clean" Q3 results that includes a 1c EPS beat. The analyst is upbeat on a potential acquisition of Viacom (VIAB) by CBS, saying that the recent decline in Viacom's stock would improve accretion to CBS shareholders.

Viacom upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Market Perform saying she believes shares are close to a floor. A merger with CBS (CBS) does not appear imminent, but if/when it does happen, CBS is unlikely to pay less than $32-$33 per Viacom share in a take-under, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. The analyst has a $33-$35 price target range for Viacom shares. Ryvicker says that she still "REALLY" likes CBS and is cautious on CBS and Disney (DIS) into the Q3 earnings season.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CBS (CBS) upgraded to Buy from Sell at UBS with analyst Doug Mitchelson saying he sees any deal with Viacom (VIA) as priced into CBS shares already. He also has increased confidence in consensus estimates for CBS and sees further upside if the national TV ad market and CBS' ratings remain strong. 2. Pandora (P) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Heath Terry saying he sees significant upside to out-year estimates from premium radio and on-demand subscriptions. He expects competition to ease as new entrants slow and existing providers focus on profitability and limit "free" models. 3. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Shaun Kelley saying shares remain fairly under-owned and thinks estimate revisions will move higher due to market momentum, better ROI for Parisian, Cotai infrastructure additions, and optionality from Japan and real estate. 4. KBR (KBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Chad Dillard saying yesterday's 10% post-guidance cut selloff is overdone and backward-looking. 5. West Marine (WMAR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

CBS upgraded to Buy at UBS
As reported previously, UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson upgraded CBS (CBS) to Buy from Sell. The analyst sees any deal with Viacom (VIA) as priced into CBS shares already. He also has increased confidence in consensus estimates for CBS and sees further upside if the national TV ad market and CBS' ratings remain strong. Mitchelson raised his price target to $66 from $52 on CBS shares.

Viacom (VIA, VIAB) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Wells Fargo and to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill. 3. TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Charles Schwab (SCHW) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill. 4. Talend (TLND) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Jesse Hulsing saying the company will benefit from analytic workloads moving to the cloud. 5.

Viacom upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Jessica Reif Cohen upgraded Viacom (VIAB) two notches to Buy from Underperform and raised its price target to $44 from $37. The analyst views risk/reward as favorable given a potential turnaround by a new management team, which is almost certain. Cohen said Viacom appears closer to a strategy shift that includes re-programming, re-branding, aggressively extending content into digital outlets, and restoring Paramount to growth and profitability. The analyst expects shares to start pricing in a more robust potential as a standalone entity, or a combination with CBS (CBS).
