Comcast increases speeds of Blast!, Performance Pro internet tiers in Northeast

Comcast announced it is significantly increasing the speeds of two of its most popular Internet speed tiers - Blast! and Performance Pro - for both new and existing customers in the Northeast Division, which includes 14 northeastern states from Maine through Virginia and the District of Columbia. Most Blast! customers will see their download speeds increase from 150 Mbps to 200 Mbps, and Performance Pro customers will see an increase from 75 Mbps to 100 Mbps, both at no additional cost. Most customers who currently subscribe to Xfinity bundles with these speed tiers will automatically be upgraded to the new speeds.

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.
