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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) and Time Warner (TWX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital with analyst Barton Crocket saying Disney's stock "will struggle to deliver much upside" from current levels. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $108 from $111. The analyst downgraded Time Warner citing valuation. 2. Chipotle (CMG) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel with analyst Paul Westra citing the firm's belief that the U.S. economy will probably enter a recession within nine months. 3. Whole Foods (WFM) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Stephen Tanal saying Whole Foods is losing share in its core natural and organic business to a variety of competitors that have raised the bar and driven a consistent deceleration in Whole Foods' same-store-sales and its first negative comps in the fourth quarter of 2016 since 2009. 4. BJ's Restaurants (BJRI) downgraded to Sell from Buy at Stifel with analyst Paul Westra citing the firm's belief that the U.S. economy will probably enter a recession within nine months. 5. Yahoo (YHOO) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analysts led by Brian Nowak saying shares going forward will solely be viewed as a trading vehicle for its 15% Alibaba (BABA) stake with the investment thesis related to shares closing the estimated 39% liquidity discount to fair market value.

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 (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).
