Time Warner upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded Time Warner (TWX) to Buy with an unchanged price target of $108. While the analyst expects the takeover by AT&T (T) to receive regulatory approval, he believes the current environment would make Time Warner's assets "highly attractive" to other media companies and Internet-based competitors were the deal to be blocked. He sees an "attractive 4-1 risk reward" for Time Warner shares. Hodulik notes the spread to the AT&T offer is 12%, or 35% annualized.

Nutrisystem price target lowered to $50 from $80 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Alex Fuhrman lowered his price target for Nutrisystem to $50 from $80, citing guidance below estimates as the company "uncharacteristically" overpaid for pre-bought ads on Fox News (FOXA) & CNN (TWX). The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Nutrisystem's shares.

Netflix growth and pricing power persist, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall writes that Netflix is a "gold standard" in content value for consumer, resolving its subscriber issues that alarmed investors just over a year ago. Cahall contends that the company still has growth potential, with estimated 99M Pay TV U.S. household market vs. the company's current 55M U.S. subscriber count. The analyst also points to the "pricing power" of Netflix relative to the competition, stating that the U.S. user engagement of about 124 minutes per day is greater than any other standalone platform and amounts to about $0.003 per watched minute compared to Premium Networks like HBO, Showtime, and Starz are "500%-800% more expensive to watch on a per-minute basis". Moreover, Cahall believes the company is proving itself in the international markets category, where it generated its first positive annual contribution margin in 2017. The analyst estimates that Netflix could have up to $20 in EPS power in the next 5 years, with its stock price rising to as high as $600 per share under a 20-30-times PE valuation.
