NBCUniversal ad sales unit reworks senior responsibilities, Variety says

NBCUniversal's ad sales division is overhauling its senior ranks after Seth Winter, the executive responsible for selling the company's sports properties, withdrew from his role, Variety reports. Dan Lovinger has been named executive VP for NBCUniversal Sports Sales Group and will assume responsibility for all ad sales for sports, the report says, citing an interview with Linda Yaccarino, chairman of NBCU's ad sales and client partnerships. Lovinger's duties at NBC, Syfy and USA will be assumed by NBCU ad sales executive Mark Marshall, the report notes. In addition, Mike Rosen will become executive VP or portfolio sales and strategy while Mark Miller will be in charge of ad sales for NBCU's News Group, the report says. Laura Molen, who has been in charge of ad sales for the company's cable networks, will expand her responsibilities to oversee ad sales for Telemundo, the report says. Reference Link

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.
