Hulu sued for failure to offer audio service for blind subscribers, NY Post says

Advocacy groups are suing Hulu, which is jointly owned by Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner (TWX), and Fox (FOX), as part of efforts to force the company to provide an audio track that assists the blind or visually impaired in enjoying television programs and movies, the New York Post reports. The suit, which was filed in Boston, requests that the court to declare Hulu's failure to provide services for the blind violates the Americans with Disabilities Act, the report notes.

21st Century Fox price target raised to $36 from $29 at B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Barton Crockett raised his price target for 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to $36 citing recent reports that Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA), Verizon (VZ) or Sony (SNE) may make offers for the company. The "formerly unthinkable" prospect of Rupert Murdoch selling assets is likely to be factored into the equity price for some time, Crockett tells investors in a research. He keeps a Neutral rating on Fox given the stock's proximity to his new target.

Disney stock price to remain range-bound for some time, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst David Miller says the move higher in Disney (DIS) stock price on Friday of last week had more to do with CEO Bob Iger's claim to price the company's "over the top" offerings below Netflix (NFLX) rather than stabilization in Cable subscriber base. Miller adds that speculation that Disney can "displace" Netflix was a "near-term overreaction", keeping his Hold rating and $103 price target.

Evercore ISI incrementally optimistic on Disney's FY18 outlook
Evercore ISI analyst Vijay Jayant came away from Disney's lackluster Q4 report incrementally optimistic on the company's FY18 outlook. He said the massive film slate for the coming year should translate into double-digit full year revenue and OIBDA gains, while underlying trends at the media networks division are improving. Jayant believes management is making the right strategic decisions and the fresh guidance could be a modest postive for sentiment. Jayant rares Disney and Outperform with a $120 price target.

Disney deal for Fox wouldn't solve underlying problems, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger noted that Disney (DIS) has gone from a situation where reported EPS was going up but its stock price was going down to one where EPS is going down but the stock has been going up a bit driven by M&A speculation. However, he contends that the current round of renewed M&A speculation is happening because underlying fundamentals are "so bad" and even if a deal for Disney to buy Fox (FOXA) assets happens it wouldn't solve the underlying problems. He also thinks the chances of a Disney-Fox deal as currently described are "very low." Juenger maintains a Market Perform rating and $101 price target on Disney shares.

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.

Expert sees positive settlements for TiVo, says JPMorgan
JP Morgan analyst Sterling Auty hosted Bloomberg Intelligence Litigation Analyst Matt Larson to discuss TiVo's (TIVO) ITC and District Court cases with Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) and Hulu. Larson said he believes settlement is the most likely outcome in both cases, which Auty sees as a positive for TiVo. A positive resolution could have "material upside" for TiVo's shares, as it bolsters the case for TiVo driving earnings to the $3 per share level, Auty added. JP Morgan kept an Overweight rating and $34 price target on TiVo shares.

AT&T price target lowered to $42 from $45 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal lowered his price for AT&T (T) shares target to $42 after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to block the company's acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). The analyst notes he didn't lowered his target post the Q3 video miss given the pending deal. He believes the shares have "room to run" with or without Time Warner and keeps a Buy rating on AT&T.

Merits of antitrust case favor AT&T, says Baird
Baird analyst William Power noted the DOJ sued to block the AT&T (T) and Time Warner (TWX) deal largely on the grounds that the merger would harm consumers due to higher content prices. The analyst finds it difficult to believe that, given other competition, the company would be able to significantly raise pricing for Turner properties or HBO and risk driving away current partners. He said although his thesis is at risk from the suit, he ultimately believes the merits of the case favor AT&T. Power reiterated his Outperform rating and $42 price target on AT&T shares.

Deutsche Bank analyst Matthew Niknam expects shares of AT&T (T) to remain relatively range-bound in the near-term due to heightened regulatory risks around the company's proposed merger with Time Warner (TWX). The analyst notes that his standalone AT&T estimates continue to imply flattish earnings growth for Q4 and in upcoming years. He sees the Justice Department suit capping any near-term upside and trimmed his price target for Hold-rated AT&T to $37 from $38.

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.

Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker believes 21st Century Fox is worth $41 per share as a sum of its parts, or $47 per share including all of Sky. As such, the analyst sees substantial upside potential for 21st Century Fox based on this analysis. Ryvicker maintained an Outperform rating and $34 price target on 21st Century Fox based on the company's fundamentals, rather than M&A speculation.

Wells sees 'exceedingly low' probability of Comcast, Fox deal
Following reports that Comcast (CMCSA) is looking to buy all or part of 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker says the likelihood of any deal being consummated is "exceedingly low." Amid the regulatory scrutiny over AT&T's (T) proposed vertical acquisition of Time Warner (TWX), Comcast would have an "exceptionally difficult time" completing a Fox merger as it would be both vertical and horizontal in nature, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out, however, that her sum-of-the-parts analysis suggests Fox is worth $41 per share.
