Experts: Disney-Fox deal may raise antitrust worries, Reuters reports

Competition experts say that Disney's (DIS) deal to acquire a number of 21st Century Fox (FOX) assets could draw the attention of U.S. antitrust regulators, Reuters reports. "Any combination of sports programming is going to trigger significant scrutiny. They'll look at the competition between ESPN and the regional sports networks," Caroline Holland, a veteran of the U.S. Justice Department's Antitrust Division, told Reuters. Holland added that antitrust regulators would be interested to know if a more powerful Disney sports franchise would give it the clout to increase prices for cable operators and internet TV providers, the report notes. Five antitrust experts said this week that the agreement would likely be approved by the U.S. Justice Department, although the agency may require asset sales or conditions, the report says.

Fox deal brings 'significant' opportunities for Disney, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Stan Meyers believes the acquisition of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) assets creates "significant" growth opportunities for Disney (DIS). For Disney, the deal unlocks a "vast wealth" of intellectual property, integrates "vast" distribution capabilities, launches and expands direct-to-consumer offerings, and extracts improved economics via scale from its counterparties, Meyers investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $120 price target.

RBC Capital sees Disney, 21st Century Fox transaction as 'deal of the decade'
Calling it the "deal of the decade," RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall notes that Disney (DIS) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA) announced their much anticipated deal at terms generally in-line with prior media reports.

21st Century Fox should trade at a minimum of $37, says Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt said 21st Century Fox (FOXA) should be trading at a minimum of $37 per share today assuming Disney's (DIS) current price of $110, a conservative value for the tax shield and a 15% arbitrage discount. The firm believes the deal will pass regulatory scrutiny with the possible exception of the Regional Sports Network, for which Disney should be able to find willing buyers.

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.

BTIG says Comcast could pay 'significantly' more for Fox assets than Disney
BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield said earlier in a note to investors that he believes Comcast (CMCSA) could pay "significantly more" for the assets that Fox (FOXA) is reportedly looking to sell than could Disney (DIS). He also believes Comcast could have a better chance of securing regulatory approval for a deal if they are willing to spin off all of the regional sports networks that a combined entity would own.

FBN says Fox could be worth over $42 per share with Disney deal
With multiple media report indicating that Disney (DIS) is close to finalizing a deal to buy most of 21st Century Fox's (FOX) assets and operations, FBN Securities analyst Robert Routh is estimating that Fox shares could have a "real value" of $42.46 based on what has been reported on the likely deal. This estimate is before considering taxes and taking into account that Disney shares will likely rise after a deal is confirmed, said Routh, who does not officially cover either Disney or Fox.

Disney, Fox deal may be a near-term positive for Netflix, BTIG says
Commenting on Disney's (DIS) deal with Fox (FOX; FOXA) and its potential implications, BTIG's Richard Greenfield notes that the knee jerk reaction he hears across the investment world is the former is buying the later to build their "Netflix killer." Greenfield "strongly disagrees" with this viewpoint, saying that if Disney wanted to build a Netflix competitor it should be eliminating its stock buyback and aggressively investing in content that has no legacy media strings attached. Further, the Disney/Fox transaction is likely a near-to-intermediate term positive for Netflix, he argues, adding that both companies will be tied up in a 12 month or more regulatory review process with thousands of executives in limbo pending the closing of the transaction.
