Neutral
Viacom upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $30 from $26. The analyst assigns a 50% probability of a merger with CBS (CBS) and believes Viacom shares would be worth $30 under such a scenario.

Citi sees 50/50 chance of CBS, Viacom merger
Amid media reports that CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIAB) are discussing a combination, Citi analyst Jason Bazinet is out with a research note ascribing a 50/50 chance of a deal being reached. The analyst sees three unknowns: will they merge, will CBS pay a premium for Viacom, and how large are the synergies? To reflect the potential for a deal, Bazinet upgraded Viacom to Neutral from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $30 from $26. The analyst also lowered his price target for Buy-rated CBS to $61 from $71.

CBS take-under offer for Viacom may 'uncouple' the stocks, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould is keeping his Buy rating and $75 price target on CBS (CBS) following yesterday's afterhours reports of a take-under consideration for Viacom (VIAB). The analyst notes that the two stocks have been linked in underperformance, and that the low offer may uncouple that momentum. Gould adds that the deal could give CBS greater scale, allow an opportunity to buy the company early in its turnaround process, and add to its distribution leverage with scale and synergies.

Sector Weight
KeyBanc would likely view Viacom acquisition by CBS favorably
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves notes that news reports suggest an all-stock offer for Viacom (VIAB) by CBS (CBS) is imminent. The analyst believes this would create earnings growth potential through cost synergies in excess of what CBS standalone is capable of and could increase the likelihood of monetizing Viacom-owned assets through disposition. Hargreaves views the near-term risk/reward on CBS as positive and would likely view a deal favorably. He reiterates a Sector Weight rating on CBS shares.

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).

CBS price target raised to $86 from $78 at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos raised his FY18 revenue forecast for CBS (CBS) by $750M to $14.9B after the company's Q4 report to reflect a healthier ad environment and increased his price target to $86 from $78. While "everyone continues to denigrate" a Viacom (VIAB) merger, Kurnos point outs the international distribution benefits that don't seem to be factored into the equation. The analyst, who thinks CBS shares are "a bargain," keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Macquarie by analyst Tim Nollen, who told investors that the company has taken a decisive turn in strategy to re-set its distribution relationships and is in the early stages of a turnaround. Nollen believes Viacom can return to growth despite any merger outcome with CBS (CBS) and raised estimates on increased U.S. ad and affiliate revenue growth. 2. Tenet (THC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James by analyst John Ransom to reflect management's efforts to reduce costs and sell assets. Ransom said the company is reducing debt and could generate $400M in annual free cash flow until its NOL runs out. 3. AB InBev (BUD) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna by analyst Pablo Zuanic, who said the recent weakness provided an attractive entry point as the company had a great January to September period of organic growth, he sees deal synergies with SAB, and he believes Q4 was just as good if not better than the same period a year ago. 4. Etsy (ETSY) upgraded to Buy at Roth Capital by analyst Darren Aftahi after a "strong" Q4 and citing growth reacceleration and margin expansion. 5. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MoffettNathanson. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
