Sizable option spread in CBS ahead of earnings

Sizable option spread in CBS ahead of earnings. The stock up $1.05 to $54.21 and 6.6K Mar 47.5 - 52.5 put spreads sold at $1.01 while 6.6K Mar 50 - 55 put spreads bought for $2.01. The four-way (put condor for $1) likely rolls a matching trade from 2/9 when a buyer paid $2.25 to open 6.6K Mar 47.5 - 52.5 put spreads (stock ref. $52.90). Shares are up 2.5% since that time and the defensive position is being rolled to a Mar 50 - 55 put spread ahead of a profit report Thursday afternoon.

Potential reunion with CBS looms over Viacom fundamentals, says Barrington
Barrington analyst James Goss noted that Viacom (VIAB), which reported Q1 earnings last Thursday, beat the firm's EPS estimate, but fell 4% short of its revenue estimate, mainly due to a larger-than-expected decline in the revenue rate for Paramount. Godd reiterated a Market Perform rating on Viacom, saying that while the company's strategy will push it in a favorable direction, in the near term the primary catalyst appears to be the chance to recombine with CBS (CBS).

Viacom price target raised to $34 from $27 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Viacom (VIAB) to $34, saying he remains "impressed" by the management's turnaround at the company, as seen in its better affiliate fee outlook, upcoming "direct to consumer" product launch, acquisitions of Vidcon and WHOSAY, and stronger international growth. The analyst also keeps his Market Perform rating, citing limited visibility around a potential CBS (CBS) deal as well as the company's asset mix remaining challenging.

Viacom upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC on increasing likelihood of CBS deal
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Sector Perform and raised his price target to $35 from $23, saying the combination with CBS (CBS) is increasingly likely. Cahall says he has been negative on Viacom for about two years based on the view of its networks being more at risk than peers from a "deteriorating ecosystem". Now that the merger with CBS is back on "likely in the coming months", the analyst contends, the transaction multiples near market prices would justify a more constructive view.

Standalone or merger, Deutsche sees CBS shares going higher
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft laid out his analysis for CBS (CBS) shares under different merger scenarios. The analyst values the stock at $90 in 12 months should CBS remain independent. In a merger with Viacom (VIAB), the analyst's pro forma 12-month valuation has the stock also worth $90. Kraft also analyzed a three-way merger transaction which combines CBS, Viacom and Lionsgate (LGF.A). Under this scenario, the analyst values CBS shares at $96 on a 12-month basis. Kraft has a Buy rating on CBS with a $90 price target.
