Buy
Viacom upgraded to Buy on strategic realignment at Drexel Hamilton
As previously reported, Drexel Hamilton analyst Tony Wible upgraded Viacom to Buy from Hold as he believes the refocusing of the business on its core flagship networks will prove beneficial and can lead to growth. As Multichannel Video Programming Distributors, or MVPDs, adjust to programing cost pressure, Wible sees them using Viacom as a "coping mechanism" given the relatively low cost of the core networks it is now focusing on, he tells investors. Wible raised his price target on Viacom shares to $51 from $38.

Viacom new strategy 'underwhelming,' says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst attributes most of Viacom's Q1 earnings beat to higher ancillary activity at Paramount, which called a "nice surprise on the upside." However, he also said he views the five-point plan laid out by CEO Bob Bakish as "underwhelming," adding "there was no mention of selling any networks...and yet the stock appears to be acting that way." He raised his price target on Viacom to $41 from $38 to account for expectations for slightly lower programming costs in FY18, but keeps a Hold rating on the stock.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Marci Ryvicker saying the company's first quarter results prove its turnaround is "real and likely to continue." The strategic plan put in place by CEO Bakish makes sense, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. The analyst raised his price target range for the shares to $48-$50 from $38-$40. 2. Micron (MU) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill. 3. Sanofi (SNY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Natixis. 4. Hawaiian Holdings (HA) upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research. 5. Baker Hughes (BHI) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Charles Minervino citing the selloff in shares and its upside opportunity associated with a US spending upcycle, synergies from its joint-venture with General Electric (GE), and the growth opportunities that could develop from a partnership with a diversified global oilfield services company. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani added Viacom to her firm's Analyst Focus List as a value pick while raising her price target for the shares to $52 from $50.

Viacom turnaround many not be reflected in price, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes new virtual MVPDs will expand the overall market and potentially limit subscriber erosion and accretive affiliate fees, even with limited network inclusion. The analyst expects Viacom's US cable affiliate growth to accelerate to 3-4% in 2H 2017 and said new virtual MVPD offerings are not included in FY18 assumptions. Swinburne said Viacom's improving core markets can increase the value of the overall portfolio and more than offset reduced rolls in non-core channels. The analyst raised earnings estimates on lower core expense growth and raised his price target on Viacom to $52 and reiterates his Overweight rating on shares.

The analyst continues to see "significant recovery potential" in Viacom's earnings long-term, which the new strategy looks well-placed to deliver. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
