Altice lining up $185B offer for Charter, FT reports

Altice (ATCEY) is lining up a potential $185B bid for Charter Communications (CHTR) but has not formally made an approach and may not proceed, said Financial Times, citing sources. Shares in the company's recently listed U.S. cable subsidiary Altice USA (ATUS) remain nearly flat following the news of a potential bid, first reported this morning by CNBC, though shares of parent Altice have declined about 5% in Amsterdam trading, FT noted. Charter shares have been up about 2% for hours after a spike to their highs shortly after CNBC's first report. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Teva (TEVA) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Derek Archila saying he no longer sees a "clear path" for Teva to return to growth in a "timely manner" amid continued pricing pressure in U.S. generics. 2. Charter (CHTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim with analyst Michael Morris citing valuation and increased his price target to $400 from $370. 3. Allstate (ALL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Joshua Shanker citing valuation. 4. Mattel (MAT) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser saying she left a recent management meeting with a more cautious outlook for the company's performance in the second half of 2017. 5. Lam Research (LRCX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Atif Malik saying he's becoming more selective in the Semiconductor Capital Equipment space.

Overweight
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."
