Market Perform
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.

Lionsgate's Deepwater Horizon tracking for soft opening weekend
Piper Jaffray analyst Stan Meyers says Lionsgate's Deepwater Horizon film is tracking to open lighter than expected. Deepwater was expected to be one of top three films for Lionsgate in FY17 with initial domestic box office expectations in $80M-plus territory, but consensus expectations over the past few months have come down to the $60M level, Meyers tells investors in a research note. He notes the film is tracking to open in the $16M-$20M range this weekend, slightly below the $20M expectations. Meyers expects "some near-term headwinds" for Lionsgate shares, but he sees an attractive entry point ahead of the Starz integration. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Lionsgate with a $30 price target.

AMC Networks initiated with an Outperform at FBN Securities
FBN Securities analyst Robert Routh initiated AMC Networks (AMCX) with an Outperform rating and a fair value estimate of $69.24. Routh calls AMC Networks "very attractive" as a possible takeover target, as he believes it could fit well with either the soon-to-be-combined Lionsgate (LGF)-Starz (STRZA) or with AT&T's (T) DTV division. Routh added that reports have indicated that AT&T is looking to grow its portfolio of TV content through deals.

Lionsgate Starz renewal 'better than feared but not great,' says Pacific Crest
After Liongate's (LGF) Starz announced a multi-year renewal of its deal with AT&T/DirectTV (T), Pacific Crest analysts Evan Wingren and Andy Hargreaves estimate that the agreement implies a roughly 20% decline in annual revenue compared with the previous deal. The analyst warns investors to expect similar pricing declines going forward unless Lionsgate can improve Starz's programming and integrate the asset.

Lionsgate weakness would be buying opportunity, says Brean Capital
Brean Capital analyst Alan Gould said Lionsgate shares could be weak following the disappointing opening weekend for "Blair Witch" in theaters. The analyst believes any weakness is a buying opportunity. Gould cited his respect for management and its ability to execute on acquisitions. He also sees the company becoming a roll-up up vehicle for John Malone and entertainment companies. Gould reiterated his Buy rating and $27 price target on Lionsgate shares.

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Activision Blizzard (ATVI) to $42 citing accretion from the King Digital (KING) acquisition. Activision's guidance for 30% accretion from the deal in 2016 is likely conservative, Olson tells investors in a research note following the company's investor day.
