'Thursday Night Football' debut on NBC averages 13.6M viewers across platforms

NBC Sports Group announced that last night's Carolina Panthers victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football averaged a Total Audience Delivery of 13.6M viewers across all platforms - Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC, NFL Network, Twitter (TWTR), NBC Sports Digital, and NFL Digital, according to Fast National data released today by Nielsen (NLSN), and digital data from Adobe Analytics (ADBE) and Twitter. NBC's first-ever telecast of Thursday Night Football last night averaged 13.3M TV-only viewers - ranking as the network's most-watched Thursday night show in November since 2006, excluding Thanksgiving nights - the network said. The Average Minute Audience for last night's live stream via Twitter, NBC Sports Digital, and NFL Digital was 305,000 viewers. In total, Twitter reached 3.4M combined worldwide viewers for pregame coverage and Saints-Panthers for a minimum of three seconds with that video being 100% in view. For the Thursday Night Football game alone, Twitter reached 2.9M viewers. This is the most total viewers for a Thursday Night Football game on Twitter this season through six games. Reference Link

Bain departure a loss for Twitter, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Blake Harper said the departure of COO Adam Bain is a loss for Twitter (TWTR), noting that he is well regarded internally and within the tech and advertising industries. Twitter is now searching for a full time CFO and a head of product and CEO Jack Dorsey continues to serve as full time CEO of Square (SQ) as well, which would "appear to leave its executive team stretched thin," said Harper, who keeps a Hold rating on Twitter shares.

Netflix price target raised to $151 from $133 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst David Miller raised his net subscriber growth assumptions for Netflix (NFLX) in 2017, taking up his domestic streaming net subscriber estimate by the end of 2017 to 53.7M from 53.6M and his end-year international net subscriber estimate to 55.8M from 54.8M. In doing so, he raised all of his income statement metrics and took up his price target accordingly to $151 from $133. Additionally, Miller contends that "simply because Twitter (TWTR) recently broadcast a few NFL games" does not mean Netflix will, or should, move into streaming sports.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Perform from Underperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Jason Helfstein saying the stock's valuation now "properly" reflects the challenging fundamental outlook. 2. Bristol-Myers (BMY) upgraded to Long-Term Buy from Neutral at Hilliard Lyons. 3. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded on valuation at BMO Capital with analyst Tim Long saying he is neutral on Qualcomm's acquisition of NXP (NXPI), but he expects Qualcomm's stock to stay in a trading range in the wake of the deal. 4. Level 3 (LVTL) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Timothy Horan saying the company has restructured itself in the last few years and now has operational/financial flexibility on free cash flow, with the analyst seeing accelerating growth in 2017. 5.

Twitter shares continue to have compelling risk/reward, says UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan said Twitter demonstrated stable to improving user growth and engagement for the second quarter in a row as its initiatives around live video and product begin to bear fruit. While investors continue to debate the company's stand alone vs. strategic value, Sheridan thinks the shares offer a compelling risk/reward. Sheridan reiterated his Buy rating and $22 price target on Twitter shares.

Jefferies says approval of Time Warner deal 'far from certain'
Jefferies analyst Mike McCormack believes regulatory approval of AT&T's (T) Time Warner acquisition is "far from certain." The analyst expects a "lengthy and arduous regulatory process" and believes the Comcast-NBCU deal serves as "both a precedent and a concern." The deal looks "modestly accretive" with "relatively small synergies," McCormack tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on AT&T with a $48 price target.

Comcast upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Amy Yong upgraded Comcast (CMCSA) to Outperform and raised its price target to $77 from $69 saying the AT&T (T)/Time Warner (TWX) and Starz (STRZA)-Lionsgate (LGF) deals highlight the merits of distribution content. Yong said Comcast is becoming a one-stop shop for all things consumer with wireless optionality, digital initiatives, and Xfinity's brand paired with strategic acquisitions like DreamWorks and BuzzFeed. The analyst said Comcast's balance sheet optionality leaves room for further vertical deals and said its DreamWorks' TV business, library of content, and direct piper into China are heavenly undervalued.

TiVo deal renewal shows IP portfolio strong, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty believes the worldwide multi-year renewal license with Panasonic (PCRFY) is another sign that TiVo's intellectual property portfolio remains strong. TiVo is positioned to land the last remaining pay TV operator out of contract in the U.S., Comcast (CMCSA), Auty tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweighrt rating on TiVo.

Comcast solid quarter overshadowed by OTT, wireless threats, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan says Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) reported a "solid" Q3, but notes that shares were likely impacted by comments surrounding AT&T's (T) $35 Over The Top service, which will be a slimmed-down service designed to expand the overall market initially. While the analyst points out that the "legitimate concern" is a wireless acquisition of T-Mobile (TMUS), he thinks this is a 2018 event and that Comcast can integrate cellular/WIFI to create a unique service. Horan reiterates an Outperform rating and $74 price target on Comcast's shares.

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.

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.

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.
