Comcast should try 'hail mary' Charter acquisition, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield makes the case that Comcast's (CMCSA) "window for M&A is simply to enticing too ignore" and lays out six potential targets that would "truly be transformative," with his top pick among the group being Charter (CHTR). A combination of Charter with Comcast would have "all of the benefits of the legacy Time Warner Cable deal with even more scale" and even though odds of approval are no better than 50/50, it is worth throwing that "hail-mary," Greenfield tells investors. The other five possible deals that Greenfield makes the case for are Disney (DIS), Verizon (VZ), Netflix (NFLX), T-Mobile (TMUS) and Snap Inc.'s (SNAP) Snapchat.

Jefferies sees potential upside to Snap's Q1 results after survey
After surveying 1,000 internet users in the U.S. aged 18-45 who use both Facebook (FB) and Snap's (SNAP) Snapchat, Jefferies analyst Brian Fitzgerald believes there could be upside to Snap's Q1 results. The survey found that both Instagram and Snapchat are seeing continued user growth, with Snapchat usage growing fastest among the older demographic, Fitzgerald tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes Snap's recent improvements to targeting and the increase gamified ad formats will help drive average revenue per user growth over time. Fitzgerald keeps a Buy rating on Snap with a $30 price target. The stock closed Thursday down 1c to $20.19.

Piper ups Facebook target, more cautious on Snap after survey
Piper Jaffray analyst Samuel Kemp raised his price target for Facebook (FB) shares to $160 from $150 after surveying 860 U.S. Instagram users to gauge engagement with its ephemeral photo/video messaging release. The social media giant closed yesterday down 34c to $139.58. The survey found that 26% of respondents had used Instagram to direct message a photo or video in the past month, Kemp tells investors in a research note. The results make the analyst "incrementally more bullish" on Facebook and "increasingly cautious" on competitor Snap (SNAP). Instagram has the potential to shift user behavior over time and negatively impact Snapchat user engagement, the analyst contends. He believes, however, that Instagram's video messaging is unlikely to impact Snapchat user growth in Q1. Kemp keeps a Neutral rating on Snap with an unchanged price target of $23 and an Overweight rating on Facebook.
