FCC watchdog investigating rule changes that benefited Sinclair, NY Times says

Back in April, the Federal Communications Commission chairman, Ajit Pai, led the charge for it to approve rules allowing television broadcasters to increase the number of stations they own and a few weeks later, Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) announced a $3.9B deal to buy Tribune Media (TRCO), a deal those rules made possible, The New York Times reports. The top internal watchdog for the FCC has since opened an investigation into whether Pai had improperly pushed for the rule changes and whether they had timed them to benefit Sinclair, according to the report, citing Representative Frank Pallone of New Jersey.

Court ruling on ownership rules positive for broadcasters, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Kyle Evans noted that a Third Circuit Court ruling protects the new FCC ownership rules for 6 months and he views the stay on petitions in this matter as a positive for the broadcasting group. However, he still thinks continued uncertainty around the timing and final structure of Sinclair's (SBGI) deal for Tribune Media (TRCO), high leverage and tax reform complications on market swaps as possible constraints on near-term deal activity. Other companies in the space include Gray Television (GTN), Nexstar (NXST) and Tegna (TGNA).

Buy
Sinclair Broadcast initiated with a Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John Janedis started Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBGI) with a Buy rating and $48 price target. The benefits of the Tribune Media (TRCO) transaction are not fully appreciated in today's stock price, the analyst contends.

Buy
Sinclair Broadcast initiated with a Buy at FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett started Sinclair Broadcast Group with a Buy rating and $43 price target. The analyst also added the shares to his firm's Alpha Generator List. The stock is "absurdly mispriced," with secular concerns for TV overly pressuring the valuation, Crockett tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees the pending $3.5B Tribune merger as a potential catalyst. He estimates the deal could lift free cash flow per share by 40%.

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.

Overweight
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.
