Disney progressing 'speedily' toward potential purchase of Fox, Deadline says

Fresh rumors are spreading about a merger between the Disney (DIS) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA), with an insider telling Deadline Hollywood: "Disney is progressing speedily toward that rumored acquisition of Fox." According to the insider, "The Murdoch clan possession of sports and news properties, and the rest of TV and the film studio going to Disney." The insider also says "if this happens we'll probably only know when it's announced," noting that Disney did the Marvel and Lucasfilm deals "under the cone of silence." The insider also notes that the reaction "is not enthusiasm, because of the uncertainty that comes with potentially reducing a major studio to content generators under the Disney silo system."

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Q3 results, analysis of Q4 viewership trends show some bright spots, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves notes that the Department of Justice's decision to sue to block AT&T (T)/Time Warner (TWX) seems likely to halt additional M&A until a resolution is reached. Additionally, the analyst points out that Q4 viewership trends appear most positive for Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB) so far, and 21st Century Fox (FOXA) remains his favorite long among TV network stocks.
