WEWS/WCPO to broadcast, live stream U.S. Senate debate in Ohio

WEWS in Cleveland and WCPO in Cincinnati, both ABC (DIS) network affiliates owned by The E.W. Scripps Company (SSP), are partnering with ideastream and The City Club of Cleveland to broadcast and live stream across the state the debate between Ohio's top two contenders for U.S. Senate. The televised debate is between incumbent U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Democrat challenger and former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland. It is the last of three debates in October and the only one carried live across multiple platforms throughout Ohio, between the major party candidates vying to represent Ohio in the U.S. Senate. "Ohio Counts: Race for the U.S. Senate," will take place in Cleveland on Oct. 20.

Market Perform
E.W. Scripps downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker downgraded E.W. Scripps to Market Perform following the slightly lower than expected Q4 report and guidance. The analyst core advertising of flat to down is disappointing and there is no visibility into when digital will break even. Ryvicker lowered his valuation range on shares to $19-$21 from $22-$26.

Citi hopes Disney does not acquire Twitter
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet lays out four reasons for why he doesn't like Disney (DIS) pursuing an acquisition of Twitter (TWTR). Going back 15 years, the analyst can't think of a single web-based property that was successfully acquired by a traditional media firm. Two, he calls Twitter trends "troubling." Three, Bazinet estimates a cash offer would lower Disney's stock by $5 per share while an equity offer would drop its stock by $9. Four, the analyst feels it is unclear how Disney's content will help Twitter. Bazinet thinks both Yahoo (YHOO) and Twitter lost "significant money" when they streamed NFL content over the web. The analyst hopes Twitter is acquired by somebody other than Disney. He keeps a Buy rating on Disney shares. Both Loop Capital and Mizuho this morning downgraded Twitter to sell ratings.

Citi says Salesforce buying Twitter 'nearly impossible' above $28/share
Citi analyst Walter Pritchard believes a Salesforce (CRM) acquisition of Twitter (TWTR) is possible financially but that such a deal would put "significant constraints" on the company for the next three-plus years. The analyst sees "very little reason" for Salesforce to own Twitter and feels the acquisition "would pose a difficult decision" for CEO Marc Benioff and the board. Salesforce closed yesterday down 6%, or $4.21, to $68.42. Recode reported last night that the company is likely the only bidder left for Twitter after Disney (DIS) and Alphabet (GOOG) opted not to pursue a deal while Apple (AAPL) is unlikely. Twitter in pre-market trading is down 14% to $21.50. In order for Salesforce to avoid a shareholder vote, it would have to borrow $7.5B to fund the transaction if Twitter were valued at $20B, or $27.50-$28 per share, Pritchard tells investors in a research note. This is a level that likely constrains the company with little additional borrowing capacity for other deals, the analyst contends. He thinks the deal is "nearly impossible to do" for Salesforce should the bidding for Twitter go above $20B or $28 per share. Pritchard has a Buy rating on Salesforce with an $89 price target.

Deutsche sees Netflix takeover as unlikely, starts shares at Sell
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft initiated shares of Netflix (NFLX) with a Sell rating and $90 price target. The stock closed Friday down 25c to $104.82. The risk/reward is unattractive as consensus expectations reflect an "optimistic case," Kraft tells investors in a research note. Market expectations appear too high through 2020, the analyst contends. He also expresses skepticism that Netflix will be acquired. The business is "too fully formed" and valued to be acquired by Disney (DIS) and Apple (AAPL), Kraft writes. He also sees Amazon.com (AMZN) as a competitive risk to Netflix.

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.
