Sinclair Broadcast 'weakness completely unwarranted,' says Wells Fargo
After Sinclair (SBGI) announced that it had agreed to buy Tribune Media (TRCO) on May 8 and Tribune's stock fell over 5% since then, Wells Fargo calls Tribune's weakness "completely unwarranted." The firm says that the deal is significantly accretive to Sinclair's free cash flow. It adds that Sinclair is outperforming its peers in advertising ,while its leverage could drop to four times by 2018. Wells keeps an Outperform rating on Sinclair.

Regulatory uncertainty may cause volatility for Sinclair, Tribune, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Kyle Evans noted that a federal court has temporarily delayed effectiveness of the FCC's decision to reinstate the UHF discount, which he said is critical for Sinclair Broadcast's (SBGI) deal to acquire Tribune Media (TRCO). The deal could be jeopardized if the court permanently blocked the UHF discount and regulatory uncertainty may cause volatility in the stocks, said Evans. The analyst reiterates his Overweight rating and $46 price target on Sinclair 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.
