Comcast shares attractive into Q1 results, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that Comcast's stock is very attractive ahead of its Q1 results. The firm increased its Q1 cable network and film estimates for the company, and raised its overall Q1 estimates above consensus levels. It keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

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.

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.

Hulu stake could be for sale this year, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh notes that Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) will be free to sell its 30% stake in Hulu from the end of 2017. The analyst believes there is a $100B domestic revenue opportunity for targeted TV advertising long-term, which vertically integrated networks/distributors will be in a strong position to exploit. Therefore, Sheikh argues that it would make sense for 21st Century Fox (FOX; FOXA) to acquire Comcast's stake in Hulu, if it becomes available, subject to valuation and appropriate programming supply agreements. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $37 price target on 21st Century Fox's shares.
