Verizon says no longer expects to upgrade credit rating by 2018-2019 timeframe

Verizon stated in a regulatory filing Friday: "In our 1Q17 earnings release issued on April 20, Verizon Communications indicated that we were on track for a return to our pre-Vodafone credit rating profile by the 2018-2019 timeframe. That expectation was based on the then existing view that rating agencies used to assess our industry. As a result of a recent change in that view, we no longer expect to be able to achieve an upgrade to our pre-Vodafone credit rating in that timeframe. Verizon remains committed to a capital allocation policy consisting of a strong balance sheet with improving credit metrics while continuing to invest in our businesses and returning value to our shareholders."

Sprint, DISH the only assets for sale, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan noted that wireless companies will be allowed to discuss M&A, and says he sees Sprint (S) and possibly DISH (DISH) as the only assets for sale. The analyst believes the most likely outcome is for consolidation around the four major wireless providers, something along the lines of Charter (CHTR)/Sprint, T-Mobile (TMUS)/Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK), Verizon (VZ)/DISH, with AT&T's (T) position "fairly solidified" with DirectTV/Time Warner (TWX). Further, Horan suspects Sprint will be sold first, most likely to Charter, although T-Mobile is a possibility and could be the controlling company/management and likely paying a premium for Sprint.

Corning doing better than expected, says UBS
UBS analyst Tejas Venkatesh noted Corning (GLW) beat expectations for Q1 and its guidance surpassed expectations, leading him to say the company is doing better than expected. He also believes the company's deal with Verizon (VZ) is significant, though he maintains his Neutral rating on Corning shares due to currency risk that keeps him on the sidelines. Venkatesh raised his price target to $28.50 from $26 on Corning.

Equinix price target raised to $472 from $440 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan raised his price target for Equinix (EQIX) to $472 from $440 after the company closed its acquisition of Verizon's (VZ) 29 data centers. The analyst sees upside from continued strong neutral datacenter demand with Verizon adding to Equinix's densely connected footprint, but also expanding its enterprise channel. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Equinix's shares.

Wunderlich downgrades Charter on valuation, sees some level of M&A priced in
As previously reported, Wunderlich analyst Matthew Harrigan downgraded Charter (CHTR) to Hold from Buy, citing valuation. He thinks that the current stock price imbeds some expectation for merger activity, apart from an eventual collapse of the Liberty Broadband (LBRDA) and Liberty Ventures (LVNTA) ownership structure, he tells investors. While a theoretical merger with Verizon (VZ) is "at least as strategically compelling" as AT&T's (T) deal for Time Warner (TWX), Harrigan thinks that price and regulatory hurdles could be difficult to overcome. He cut his price target on Charter to $350 from $360.
