Scripps Networks initiated with a Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo started coverage of Scripps with an $82 price target and a Market Perform rating. The firm says the company has a number of strengths, including "very low affiliate fees, extremely high engagement, an educated female audience," better ratings than peers and continued ad revenue growth of around 5%. However, the firm says it doesn't necessarily believe that Discovery (DISCA) is "the right partner" for Scripps, and "it's tough to get overly excited" about Scripps at the current stock price.
