Discovery likely to make deal, says RBC Capital

As the situation deteriorates for media companies due to accelerating cord cutting and weak ad trends, RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall thinks that companies in the sector will look to consolidate. He thinks that Discovery (DISCA) will likely look to combine with either Lionsgate (LGF.A,LGF.B) or Charter (CHTR) and could look to combine with Scripps Networks (SNI).

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Starbucks (SBUX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Mark Astrachan saying he views valuation as attractive and expects multiple expansion from accelerating U.S. comparable store sales growth to at least 5%-6% for the next four quarters starting in the June quarter. The analyst said shares have underperformed consumer and restaurant peers over the past 12 months and expects outperformance to be driven by meeting comp expectations. 2.

Leiker raised his price target to $161 from $160 on Lear shares. 4. Discovery (DISCA) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Jason Bazinet saying he sees little chance of material downward revisions to consensus earnings estimates. The analyst views the risk/reward as more balanced at current levels and upped his price target for the shares to $30 from $27. 5. Gap (GPS) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Matthew Boss citing the underperformance of the shares over the past 18 months and his fieldwork which suggests stability at Old Navy. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $24 from $21. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
