CenturyLink results generally in-line excluding items, says Jefferies

Jefferies analyst Scott Goldman says CenturyLink's were messy as expected given the mid-quarter Level 3 acquisition closing. Excluding one-time items, the results were generally in-line, as was the guidance, Goldman tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "A Satisfying Guide, Though Don't be Fooled by the Headlines." He expects the stock to react positively today given the "considerable apprehension" ahead of the guidance. The analyst leaves quarter "slightly more positive" on CenturyLink but keeps a Hold rating on the name with a $17 price target.

CenturyLink upgraded to Outperform at RBC Capital on synergy and valuation
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Jonathan Atkin upgraded CenturyLink to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target to $22 from $18. Atkin says there is potential upside to the company's synergy targets, adding that he believes the new management can restructure operations to generate EBITDA growth. The analyst also notes that CenturyLink's dividend is sustainable given the free cash flow accretion from tax reform and cost efficiencies.

Calix upgraded to Outperform with $9 price target at Northland
As previously reported, Northland analyst Tim Savageaux upgraded Calix (CALX) to Outperform from Market Perform, stating that while its Q4 results missed expectations the company looks to have meaningfully addressed its operating expense and gross margin issues. While he expects slower growth as a ramp at Verizon (VZ) offsets weakness at CenturyLink (CTL), he estimates the company will turn from a loss to "solid profits" in FY18, Savageaux tells investors. He set a $9 price target on Calix shares.
