VeriSign likely to rise on news of IANA oversight transition, says JPMorgan

JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty noted that the final transition of IANA over to ICANN is now complete, which he said clears the way for a Root Zone Maintainer contract and maybe an extension of .com registry agreement for VeriSign. Auty expects VeriSign shares to rise on the news, but also notes that a renewal still requires Department of Commerce approval and that the fourth quarter still has the potential for the first ever decline in the zone file as several million Chinese names will be coming up for renewal for the first time. He keeps an Underweight rating on VeriSign shares.

Cowen sees 'material adverse outcome' as not very likely for VeriSign
Cowen analyst Gregg Moskowitz says the Department of Justice posted a response to Senator Cruz's letter regarding the extension of the .com contract. While the language used was noncommittal, it may indicate that a "material adverse outcome" for VeriSign is not very likely to occur, Moskowitz tells investors in a research note. The analyst added that his quarter tracking indicates VeriSign's net domain adds for Q3 are trading slightly above the high end of the company's guidance. He has a Market Perform rating on the shares.

VeriSign rise on DOJ response to Cruz an overreaction, says Citi
Citi analyst Walter Pritchard noted that the market reacted significantly, and negatively, to the prior publishing of Ted Cruz's letter to the DOJ regarding his concerns that the Department may be prevented from having meaningful input into the prices that Verisign charges for registering a domain name within the .com domain. Now, the market is reacting, and Pritchard thinks overreacting, to the DOJ response, though the analyst said he sees "no read from this letter into what view the DOJ has relative to .com pricing." The analyst, who said the DOJ letter reiterates what he would have expected in this situation, keeps his Sell rating on VeriSign shares. Pritchard downgraded VeriSign to Sell on January 5.

VeriSign registry extension agreement by ICANN a first step, says Baird
Baird analyst Steven Ashley noted ICANN - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers- signed-off on the proposal to extend the .com registry agreement with Verisign, but said that is only the first step in the process. ICANN agreed to extend Verisign's registry agreement to 2024, but with new language in the contract, which underscores the uncertainty regarding pricing that exists around the cooperative agreement that expires in 2018, said Ashley. The analyst maintains a Neutral rating and $90 price target on Verisign shares.

Citi says .com contract uncertainty could hurt VeriSign shares
Citi analyst Walter Pritchard points out that a press report yesterday, quoting sources in the Senate, suggested that a rider to delay the transition oversight of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority functions to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers from National Telecommunications and Information Administration control had been attached to the a funding bill to fund the federal government past September 30. The issue is complex and the implications for VeriSign's .com contract are not clear, Pritchard tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, believes any uncertainty around the .com contract could drive a negative bias to shares in the near-term. He keeps a Sell rating on VeriSign with a $70 price target.
