Liberty Global exploring sale of Swiss, Austrian units, Telegraph reports

Liberty Global (LBTYA) has started work on a potential sale of its Swiss and Austrian units, sources familiar with its plans tell The Telegraph. The discussions are said to be at an early stage and may not lead to a transaction, but a sale could help pave the way for a mega-merger with Vodafone (VOD), the report notes. There are no active talks between Liberty and Vodafone, the report cautions. Reference Link

Liberty Global price target lowered to $37 from $40 at Citi
Citi analyst Simon Weeden lowered his price target for Liberty Global to $37 citing slowing cable revenue growth at the German business. The analyst, however, keeps a Buy rating on the shares. He points to potential for free cash flow recovery following the new build investment phase as well as Liberty's ability to create value as both an acquirer and target "given the strategic value of its fixed assets in a converging industry."

UBS analyst Polo Tang started Liberty Global (LBTYA) with a Neutral rating and $31 price target. The analyst, while admitting the stock's risk/reward "is becoming more attractive," prefers to await a better entry point.
