KeyBanc upgrades Comcast to Overweight on coverage transfer

KeyBanc upgraded Comcast to Overweight from Sector Weight after transferring coverage to Brandon Nispel. The analyst has a $38 price target for the shares. Uncertainty about Comcast's acquisition aspirations in media has created a buying opportunity, Nispel told investors last night in a research note. Either the company's cable business is undervalued, or investors get NBCU for essentially free, the analyst contends. He believes Comcast is trading at attractive valuation relative to peers.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Comcast (CMCSA) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Atlantic Equities. 2. Zillow (Z, ZG) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Mahaney citing the recent stock price appreciation. 3. XL Group (XL) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Dwelle saying the company's first quarter earnings did not contain any red flags around the sale of the company to AXA (AXAHY), which is on track to close in late second quarter or in the third quarter. 4. Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI with analyst Josh Schimmer citing the safety concerns around volanesorsen discussed in the latest FDA briefing documents, which also "dismantled the company's claims" that the treatment leads to benefits in pancreatis. 5. Sapiens (SPNS) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair with analyst Justin Furby saying consensus estimates for 2019 could be a "too aggressive."

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.
