Viacom shares could tumble to $2.50, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger says that Viacom could drop to $2.50 per share if its current $3B EBITDA drops to $2B, and its EBITDA multiple drops to six times. The analyst says that this scenario is "not crazy," since the company's EBITDA fell 33% from fiscal 2014 to fiscal 2016 "during a rip-roaring advertising market and the early days of cord-cutting." He keeps a $29 price target and Underperform rating on the shares.

Viacom downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker downgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Market Perform and lowered her price target for the shares to $32 from $43. Investors may need to start increasing exposure to media companies with solid streaming strategies given the push into over-the-top, and Viacom does not have one, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not see much visibility into a turnaround for Viacom's affiliate fee growth. Ryvicker this morning also upgraded Disney (DIS) to Outperform.

Viacom shares offer 'great value' at current levels, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani says Viacom over the past few months experienced improving ratings across several of its key networks, which she believes supports a positive outlook for advertising improvement. Shares of Viacom present "great value at these levels," Quadrani tells investors in a research note. She reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock.

Viacom unlikely to see boost from 'Transformers' sequel, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst David Miller believes Viacom's "Transformers" franchise is "somewhat long in the tooth" and he sees both the opening weekend and overall domestic grosses for the fifth installment, "The Last Knight" to be muted. He does note, though, that he expects international results to be "quite strong" for the film. Miller keeps a Hold rating on Viacom and lowered his price target to $37 from $39.

Disney upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker upgraded Disney (DIS) to Outperform and raised her price target for the shares to $116 from $109. The owner of ESPN and ABC closed Friday up 31c to $101.50. Concerns over potential dilution from the BAMTech stake and the streaming apps are "widely overdone," Ryvicker tells investors in a research note where she also downgraded Viacom (VIAB). She expects the TV ecosystem will soon undergo on an accelerated push into over-the-top. As such, investors may need to start increasing exposure to media companies with solid streaming strategies, such as CBS (CBS), 21st Century Fox (FOXA), and Disney, and lessen exposure to those that do not, such as Viacom and Scripps Networks (SNI)/Discovery Communications (DISCA), Ryvicker argues. The analyst likes the current entry point for Disney shares.

Charter price target raised to $450 from $380 at UBS
UBS analyst John Hodulik raised his price target on Charter to $450 from $380 following his review of potential strategic options for the company. The analyst looked at the increasing M&A speculation and said many of the options come with significantly higher leverage than its current ratio. He believes it can be increased and supported with free cash flow while maintaining its investment grade rating. Hodulik said applying a conservative multiple would suggest significant upside to the shares setting a possible floor for a suitor. Hodulik reiterated his Buy rating on Charter shares.

Charter M&A rumors overdone, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says it's "having a tough time buying into" rumors about Charter being acquired. The firm says that restrictions which have been placed on the company's debt are the biggest reason for its skepticism about the rumors. Wells keeps a Market Perform rating on Charter.

Charter shares can rise even without M&A, says Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet said he suspects about 30% of Charter's (CHTR) 80% advance since June of last year is due primarily to M&A speculation, but his analysis leads him to believe the stock could rally to $478 even without multiple expansion or M&A. To arrive at his conclusion, Bazinet placed 80% odds on Charter benefiting from some form of U.S. tax reform, a 40% chance that the company tiers Viacom (VIAB) and a 20% chance that it drops Viacom entirely. Bazinet raised his price target on Charter to $456 from $378 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Comcast, Altice USA could jointly bid for Charter, says Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet presented a scenario to investors this morning where Comcast (CMCSA) and Altice USA (ATUS) put in a joint bid for Charter Communications (CHTR). He assumes Charter receives a $450 per share bid. The stock on Friday closed down $4.19 to $394.49. In this scenario, the analyst sees Altice's equity rising 10% and Comcast trading flat. Bazinet has Buy ratings on all three names.
