Senate votes in favor of restoring FCC's net-neutrality rules, BI reports

The U.S. Senate voted 52-47 on Wednesday to put the Federal Communications Commission's net-neutrality rules back in place, Business Insider reports. The Senate resolution would overturn a vote by the agency in December to repeal its open-internet regulations. The resolution had drawn the support of half of all senators, including all Democrats; two additional Republicans backed it in the final vote. Publicly traded companies that could be impacted by the decision include ISPs like AT&T (T), Charter Communications (CHTR), Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) and Verizon (VZ). Content providers, such as Netflix (NFLX), Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR), have all lobbied in favor of net neutrality. Reference Link

While churn is improving and pre-paid net subscriber additions growth continues, the analyst sees a shift from Pay-TV to OTT model weighing on revenue and margins in the Entertainment and Internet segments.

AT&T multiples at 'historical lows,' says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Matthew Niknam sees value in shares of AT&T with "multiples at historical lows." Despite lowering his earnings estimates by 1%-2%, the analyst says the stock's "heavily discounted valuation is noteworthy." AT&T currently trades at 9.6 times 2018 earnings estimates, which marks its historical trough, Niknam tells investors in a research note. He believes the 6.1% dividend yield should provide additional downside support. Nonetheless, Niknam lowered his price target for AT&T to $36 from $41 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares.

Morgan Stanley discusses T-Mobile deal implications for competitors, towers
After T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) announced a merger agreement, Morgan Stanley analyst Simon Flannery said that while the $43B in estimated synergies is "impressive," the key question is how likely is it that the companies can gain regulatory approval. On competition, he thinks the deal may contribute to a more benign competitive environment in the near-term and that AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) could benefit from market consolidation, though he adds that the new T-Mobile would be a formidable competitor in new areas such as 5G and fixed broadband. Flannery added that the deal will be an overhang on tower and fiber providers, noting that part of their $4B in annual network synergies involves a reduction in tower counts from 110,000 to 85,000 over time. However, the analyst said he would expect much more gear to be deployed on each tower and small cells will still expand to 50,000 from 10,000. Tower operators include American Tower (AMT), Crown Castle (CCI) and SBA Communications (SBAC), which are all lower in pre-market trading.

He also sees relatively modest downside risk in the event of the deal being blocked, given the continued fundamental support based on existing Time Warner assets and operations, he tells investors. Goss maintains a $110 price target on Time Warner shares.

Miller keeps his Buy rating on Charter however, adding that the valuation following the 22% year-to-date decline in the stock price is compelling in spite of the subscriber churn.

Comcast acquisition of Fox would make strategic, financial sense, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that press reports stated Comcast (CMCSA) has lined up $60B in financing to make an all-cash offer for Fox's (FOXA) entertainment assets, representing a 15% premium to Disney's (DIS) offer. While he thinks this has caused half the 30% decline in Comcast's stock year to date, the analyst believes it does make strategic and financial sense, and Comcast has a great track record on acquisitions. Horan thinks a joint NBC/Fox is a content powerhouse while expanding the company's presence in Europe through Sky (SKYAY), and slashing OTT video risk. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $42 price target on Comcast's shares.

Macquarie analyst Guy Peddy upgraded Sky (SKYAY) to Outperform from Neutral after he raised his FY19/20 and FY20/21 EPS by about 16% due to the lower EPL costs. His valuation analysis suggests the current 1075p offer from 21st Century Fox (FOXA) "materially undervalues" Sky and even Comcast's (CMCSA) indicative offer at 1250p "fractionally undervalues" it, Peddy tells investors. What happens next is up to Comcast and Disney (DIS), as Fox is just an intermediary, he added. Peddy raised his price target on Sky shares to 1450p, as he believes tension between those two could lift the offer price at least 10% above his fair value estimate of 1287p.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Celgene (CELG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust by analyst Yatin Suneja after the company received a refusal to file letter from the FDA on ozanimod for relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. Suneja said that following pipeline setbacks in late 2017, ozanimod was central to his "bull thesis to re-accelerate growth" and provide "much needed diversification away from myeloma." Given the delay, he lowered his ozanimod peak sales estimate to $3.5B from $5B. The refusal to file letter could result in a 24-month or longer delay for ozanimod's launch in relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis, Suneja said. 2. Frontier Communications (FTR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Scott Goldman. With the dividend now suspended and EBITDA stabilization "still a work in progress," the shares have no near-term catalyst, Goldman said. He believes "significant challenges" remain for Frontier following the dividend suspension. 3. Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie by analyst Amy Young, who cited uncertainty around the M&A playbook and increased net leverage. Young said Comcast's intention to acquire Sky (SKYAY) diversifies its portfolio and increases international revenues to 25% of total from 9% currently, but exposes it to satellite TV, which faces secular pressures. The analyst views the 12x price tag for Sky as high, questions the synergies, and believes the unpredictability could cap near-term upside. 4. e.l.f. Beauty (ELF) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital by analyst Shannon Coyne, who cited the "near-term challenges in the mass category" and heightened competition yielding further pressure on results and the stock in the near term. The analyst also points to the management having lowered its expectations for the 3rd time in 6 months, adding that it may take some time for investor confidence to return. Despite the downgrade, the analyst believes that e.l.f "has material white space in existing and new retailers" as well as an "unmatched strong value proposition." 5. Maxim Integrated (MXIM) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie by analyst Srini Pajjuri, who said shares have significantly outperformed the SOX index year-to-date and believes healthy fundamentals are now backed in, combined with some M&A premium. Pajjuri believes further upside is limited on a fundamental basis and believes comps will get tougher in the second half of 2018 and sees risk of higher volatility in Consumer as Samsung GS9 builds fade.

Piper survey shows most Netflix subscribers willing to pay more
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his firm's survey of 1,100 domestic Netflix subscribers shows that most would be willing to pay more to remain subscribers of the service, with some willing to pay significantly more. Specifically, 64% of subscribers surveyed indicated that they would not cancel Netflix until it reaches a price of greater than $15 per month. Among those, 23% said they wouldn't cancel until pricing reached greater than $20 per month, and 5% would only cancel if pricing was well above $20 per month. The conclusion is that Netflix could raise monthly prices to $15 or more today and approximately two-thirds of subs would absorb the increase and remain on the service, Olson tells investors in a research note. Compared to a similar survey taken in mid-2016, a higher percentage of subscribers are willing to pay a higher monthly fee, suggesting Netflix content has improved, the analyst adds. Olson reiterates an Overweight rating on Netflix with a $367 price target. The streaming service closed yesterday up $2.07 to $328.53.

Netflix valuation remains 'significantly higher' than peers, says Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner kept his Hold rating on Netflix (NFLX) but raised his FY18 EPS view to $2.89 from $2.73 after the company's Q1 earnings beat. The analyst says the company is benefiting from the "secular growth of internet-delivered on-demand video" but also warns that it is taking on more debt, resulting in a "stunning" cash-burn rate. Bonner adds that the market is still judging the company by its subscriber growth while overlooking the costs associated with the ramp in content production and content licensing. The analyst is also cautious on Netflix valuation as its trailing enterprise value to EBITDA multiple is 136-times relative to 29-times peer average and 48-times at Amazon (AMZN).

The analyst cites Q1 net subscriber adds' consensus beat of 32% for domestic and 9% for international segments, while the outlook for Q2 was above the Street by 23% and 19% respectively. Mahaney also points to improving profitability, as Netflix domestic contribution margin expanded by 400bps to 38% and international margin reached a record high of 15%. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Netflix, maintaining his view of the company's "King of Content" position amid a rapid global ramp in demand for internet TV.

Walmart deal for Flipkart more dilutive than anticipated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that news reports heading up to Walmart's (WMT) deal for a majority stake in Flipkart had predicted a $12B transaction for about 60% of a business generating operating losses in the $1B range. However, the higher than expected magnitude of losses Walmart would absorb in India significantly raises the stakes on the trajectory of its U.S. business and clouds the near-term path, he said. He also questions why the company is investing outside the U.S. market, stating that it could have instead accelerated its third-party marketplace infrastructure, stepped up its partnership with Google Home (GOOG) to better compete with Amazon's (AMZN) Alexa, or intensified domestic investments in price and fulfillment. However, he does add that the deal prevents Amazon, for now, from building an "insurmountable" advantage in the important Indian market. Gutman lowered his price target on Walmart to $93 from $99 after the deal was more dilutive than anticipated and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares.

While this could create a headwind to Criteo's revenue growth, Hargreaves believes exposure is modest and built into current expectations.

Video accounts for greater than 50% of Twitter ad revenue and is its fastest growing ad format, Sebastian points out. The analyst says Disney and Viacom represent two of the company's biggest partnership wins to-date. He keeps a Neutral rating on Twitter with a $30 price target. The stock closed the trading day up 4.5% to $30.31.
