Charter offer would likely have to be at least $500 per share, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes SoftBank (SFTBY) is one of the few companies that could offer a big enough price to take control of Charter Communications (CHTR). While a deal is not very likely, Softbank Chairman Masayoshi Son "is never to be counted out as a buyer," Cusick tells investors in a research note. He believes a Charter acquisition offer would likely have to be in the $500 per share or higher range. Charter shares in premarket trading are up $31.74 to $402 after the Wall Street Journal reported Friday night that SoftBank has interest in merging the company with Sprint. Cusick estimates annual synergies between Sprint (S) and Charter could be around $2B, with minimal cost to integrate versus a Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS) merger "which would have more eventual cost savings but cost much more to integrate." A Sprint and Charter deal would not have a difficult regulatory review, the analyst believes. Cusick adds that if Charter looked like it was going to sell to Softbank, Comcast (CMCSA) would have to decide if it ever did want to buy Charter and "move more quickly with an even bigger premium."

Comcast should acquire Verizon for four reasons, says Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet says Comcast (CMCSA) should acquire Verizon (VZ) for four reasons. Wireless would allow Comcast to extend Internet connectivity beyond the home, the deal would allow the company to push fiber deeper into neighborhoods, Verizon is apt to be the second biggest beneficiary of wireless consolidation, and Comcast could see upside if the tax code changes, Bazinet tells investors in a research note titled "Stars Are Aligning for Comcast + Verizon." The analyst sees the timing for a deal as right given Comcast's history of "trying to acquire assets that have fallen on difficult times" and the potential for a more amendable regulatory landscape under President Trump. Further, 2017 is the first year where Comcast's market capitalization exceeds Verizon's, the analyst adds. He estimates the pro forma combined company would generate $2.1B of annual synergies. Assuming a 20% premium for Verizon's equity, paid via 75% equity and 25% cash, Bazinet estimates Comcast shares would rise to $41. The stock closed yesterday up 28c to $39.75. Bazinet thinks Dish (DISH) could be the biggest loser should Comcast acquire Verizon, and he double downgraded the shares this morning to Sell from Buy.

Dish downgraded to Sell from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet double downgraded Dish (DISH) to Sell from Buy and cut his price target for the shares to $52 from $94. The analyst believes Comcast (CMCSA) should acquire Verizon (VZ), and says such a deal would put "significant pressure" on Dish's equity since Verizon is viewed as the most likely Dish suitor.
