Fox's 2018 World Cup TV rights may take hit from American loss, BI reports

Fox (FOX, FOXA) agreed to pay $400M to secure English-broadcast rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cup and outbid Disney's (DIS) ESPN, but the broadcasts are expected to be less valuable after the U.S. Men's National Team lost to Trinidad & Tobago, eliminating them from the 2018 competition, Business Insider reports. In past years, Fox would have been able to broadcast three group stage games for the U.S. and possible extra games if the Americans made it into the knockout round but now Fox will have to forge a different path to spark American interest in the tournament.

Netflix 'still the best value' for consumers despite price hike, says Stifel
After Netflix (NFLX) disclosed it is raising subscription prices for the Standard and Premium tiers in the U.S., Stifel analyst Scott Devitt said he expects "similar round number increases" in a number of other markets, noting that the company has also confirmed increases for its top two U.K. plans. The analyst, who noted that Hulu's ad-free option and HBO Now (TWX) remain as expensive or more expensive than Netflix, said its streaming service is "still the best value on the consumer Internet." Devitt keeps a Buy rating and $200 price target on Netflix shares.

21st Century Fox, Sky deal to take longer to clear, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh continues to believe the Sky (SKYAY) transaction will eventually receive full regulatory approval, but highlights there is an elevated risk to the deal if it is referred to the CMA, and at best an extended period before it gets cleared. Meanwhile, he believes the 2018 21st Century Fox (FOXA) organic equity story looks compelling, and reiterates an Outperform rating and $37 price target on the shares.

Fox-ION 'rumors' most likely a negotiating tactic, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos highlighted a "slew" of "inconsistencies" that make him skeptical of last week's "unsubstantiated rumor published by Bloomberg" regarding Fox (FOXA) potentially forming a JV with ION and pulling all of its affiliate agreements from Sinclair (SBGI), concluding in a note to investors that this was "just another negotiating tactic by the network." Fox's "cozy" agreements with Tribune (TRCO) may get disrupted by Sinclair's acquisition, added Kurnos, who has a Buy rating on Sinclair shares.

Outperform
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.

Cowen lowers price targets on media companies
Cowen analyst Doug Crentz cut his price targets for several media companies, as he believes that the margin pressure on TV networks will continue. The analyst believes that consensus estimates for TV broadcasters are too high, as he expects that the decline in the sector's EBITDA margin will more than double this year, driven by lower ad and affiliate revenue. He believes that two "deep-pocketed, low margin competitors -Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN) - are the root of the problem. He cut his price target on Viacom (VIAB) to $31 from $41, on Discovery (DISCA) to $19 from $25, on Fox (FOXA) to $29 from $32, on CBS (CBS) to $69 from $70 and on Disney (DIS) to $94 from $95.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Larry Biegelsen saying J&J is poised to reaccelerate its sales growth due to accretion from the Actelion acquisition, a "more measured" than expected impact from biosimilar competition, "solid performance" of key drugs and a pipeline that is "coming to fruition." 2. Morgan Stanley (MS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Susan Roth Katzke citing the over 10% total return potential in the shares. 3. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Top Pick from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Steven Cahall saying he thinks the company has reached a turning point with ESPN approaching less than 20% of earnings and "non-Media" Disney remaining a global leader in content that is executing well. 4. INC Research (INCR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies analyst David Windley saying the recent share pullback provides a "compelling" entry point. 5. British American Tobacco (BTI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Top Pick
Disney upgraded to Top Pick on improved visibility at RBC Capital
As previously reported, RBC Capital upgraded Disney to Top Pick from Outperform, with analyst Steven Cahall saying he thinks the company has reached a turning point with ESPN approaching less than 20% of earnings and "non-Media" Disney remaining a global leader in content that is executing well. At a time when investors are worried about ad and affiliate trends, Disney is "the least media stock in the media sector" and its non-Media earnings and direct-to-consumer approach give the stock potential for a rerating, Cahall tells investors. The analyst, who trimmed his FY18 and FY19 earnings estimates for Disney, lowered his price target on the stock to $125 from $130.
