JPMorgan 'relatively favorable' on movie theaters into 2018
JPMorgan analyst Julia Yue expects improved, although still volatile, box office trends heading into 2018. Cinemark (CNK) and Regal Entertainment (RGC) shares will likely be affected by short-term performance and larger secular fears from any premium-video-on-demand headlines, Yue told investors in a research note detailing her sector outlook for 2018. The analyst has an Overweight rating on Cinemark and Neutral rating on Regal. She's "relatively favorable" on the movie theaters going into next year and projects EBITDA growth, market share gains, and potential further consolidation will drive growth and better share performance. Risks to the companies include MoviePass, of which Helios and Matheson (HMNY) owns a 52% stake, Netflix (NFLX) and higher film rents, Yue contends. The analyst notes MoviePass pays full retail price to the exhibitors for each consumer and sustains the difference between retail price payments to the exhibitors and incoming revenue from its subscribers as a loss. She believes, however, that the service has the potential to change consumers' perceptions of the value of a movie ticket longer term. Over the near term, Yue views the subscription service positively for the exhibitors saying it could drive incremental attendance and concession purchases. Longer term, however, MoviePass could have negative implications for the movie theatres if it were to gain enough subscribers to demand better economics, Yue writes.

Helios and Matheson initiated with a Buy at Canaccord
Canaccord Genuity analyst Austin Moldow started Helios and Matheson Analytics with a Buy rating and $15 price target. The analyst estimates that only 15% of theatre seats in the U.S. are filled each year. Similar to the online travel agencies, the MoviePass unlimited subscription product "provides a mechanism for aggregating demand and creating a new profit pool to share with exhibitors," Moldow tells investors in a research note. He expects the subscription service's "rapid growth" to continue.

Helios and Matheson price target lowered to $16 from $25 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Brian Kinstlinger lowered his price target on Helios and Matheson to $16, citing dilution from the company's recent equity offering, though he also sees it as a long term positive allowing the company to fund subscriber growth. The analyst also points to higher average ticket price paid by MoviePass while forecasting the related subscriber count to reach 4M by Q3-end from over 2M present. Kinstlinger keeps his Buy rating on Helios and Matheson.

Canaccord positive on Moviefone acquisition by MoviePass
Canaccord analyst is Austin Moldow notes that Helios and Matheson (HMNY) has completed the acquisition of Moviefone assets from Oath, a subsidiary of Verizon (VZ). The analyst believes this deal gives MoviePass the opportunity to convert a large number of users into subscribers and provides a platform for enhanced studio marketing and user engagement. MoviePass will leverage the Moviefone brand and audience for subscriber conversion, he contends, adding that he estimates the overlap of Moviefone users and MoviePass subs is fairly minimal. Moldow reiterates a Buy rating and $15 price target on Helios and Matheson shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) were upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC. 2. Unilever (UN, UL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Pinar Ergun saying the 17% pullback in the shares since the October 2017 peak has created a "compelling" entry point. 3. Rockwell Automation (ROK) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Richard Kwas saying the company's fiscal 2018 organic growth "has room to outperform" while its fiscal 2017 restructuring should yield "steady margin benefits" into fiscal 2019. 4. Jacobs Engineering (JEC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MKM Partners with analyst Daniel Scott saying he is positive on the combination with CH2M and expects the company to benefit from increased spending on defense and infrastructure. 5.

T-Mobile, Sprint merger logic, still difficult to consummate, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that The Wall Street Journal reported on revived preliminary merger talks after T-Mobile (TMUS)/Sprint (S) ended previous M&A discussions five months ago. The analyst believes a merger offers long-term value for both companies through better scale and synergies, but friction will center on control, relative valuation and regulatory approval concessions, which need to be agreed upon up-front. Ultimately, Horan thinks the industry will consolidate to four large companies that will all offer a quad-play service, one possibility being T-Mobile/Sprint, AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ)/Dish (DISH) and a combination of the cable companies/wireless assets.
