Viacom upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush

Wedbush analyst James Dix upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Outperform citing increasing likelihood of a merger with CBS (CBS). The analyst assigns a 75% probability on a merger, which he assumes would be an all-stock transaction. He raised his price target for Viacom shares to $46 from $40.

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.

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).

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.

CBS downgraded on likely Viacom merger at Telsey Advisory
As noted earlier, Telsey downgraded CBS (CBS) to Market Perform from Outperform. Analyst Tom Eagan says that CBS will probably merge with Viacom (VIA, VIAB). The analyst believes that it will take "years" for Viacom to be turned around, and he says that Viacom's fiscal 2017 EBITDA will come in 18% below its fiscal 2015 level. The analyst expects the company's credit rating to be downgraded by S&P. CBS target to $57 from $67.

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.

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.
