NFL 'fully committed' to Thursday Night Football, CNBC tweets

CNBC tweeted, "NFL issues statement on Thursday Night Football saying it is 'fully committed...and any reports to the contrary are unfounded.'" Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio previously said that the NFL would consider the possibility of ending, or at least limiting, Thursday Night Football, noting that the current contract with CBS (CBS) and NBC (CMCSA) runs through 2017. Twitter (TWTR) also has a deal to broadcast Thursday Night Football games. Reference Link

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.

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.

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.

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.

Casey's General Stores (CASY) upgraded to Outperform and Strong Buy at RBC Capital and Feltl, respectively, with analysts citing valuation and long-terms earnings growth.
