CBS looks like a bargain, Barron's says

In a follow-up story, Barron's says a deal between CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIAB) now seems increasingly remote. But amid the battler, nothing has changed around CBS' outlook, with the stock looking like a bargain, the publication adds. Reference Link

CBS price target lowered to $60 from $75 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould lowered his price target on CBS (CBS) to $60 but kept his Buy rating after the company board voted to declare a dividend even as the Delaware Court denied the company's request for a temporary restraining order against National Amusements, Inc. The analyst states that despite NAI's comment that it has no intention of forcing a deal, there is now a 60% chance of a CBS-Viacom (VIAB) merger as Les Moonves departs and Bob Bakish takes over running the combined company. In his estimated 30% scenario that there is no merger and Moonves stays as CBS CEO, the analyst assigns CBS a $79 price target. In the remaining 10% possibility of no merger but Moonves is forced out by Shari Redstone, Gould says the stock can trade around $53 per share.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Molson Coors (TAP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Mark Swartzberg saying he sees multiple expansion as unlikely because U.S. beer industry volume trends are getting worse, the company's U.S. share trends are not improving, and demographics favor continued pressure on per capita alcohol consumption. 2. Progressive (PGR) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Meyer Shields citing valuation. 3. CBS (CBS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Jessica Reif saying the lawsuit brought by CBS and the special committee alleging a breach of fiduciary duty by the National Amusements Inc. is a significant overhang for shares and will constrain outperformance until a ruling. 4. Canadian National (CNI) downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Macquarie with analyst Konark Gupta citing valuation. 5. Jounce Therapeutics (JNCE) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Jim Birchenough saying overall response rates for JTX-2011 monotherapy in gastric cancer and in triple negative breast cancer, as well as for JTX-2011 plus Opdivo in gastric cancer and in triple negative breast cancer are "underwhelming" and "not competitive with other investigational drugs."

Market Perform
CBS shares likely return to mid-$60's with no merger, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker sees three potential paths unfolding for CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIAB). The first being CBS remaining a standalone company with Les Moonves in charge. In this scenario the analyst sees CBS shares re-rating to $64, but ultimately being worth $78, and Viacom retreating to $26.50, but being worth $35-$39. The second scenario has CBS and Viacom merging with Moonves in charge. Under this, the new CBS is worth $55 per share with Viacom taken out at $32, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. Her third scenario has CBS and Viacom merging with Bob Bakish in charge. The analyst values the new CBS at $44 per share in this scenario. At this point, Ryvicker favors a go-it-alone strategy for CBS. She also likes what Bakish is doing at Viacom. The analyst keeps Market Perform rating on both stocks, however, citing the lack of visibility on the outcome or timing.

Neutral
CBS downgraded to Neutral on lawsuit overhang at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded CBS to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $58 from $78. Analyst Jessica Reif said the lawsuit brought by CBS and the special committee alleging a breach of fiduciary duty by the National Amusements Inc. is a significant overhang for shares and will constrain outperformance until a ruling. Further, Reif sees increased risk that CEO Leslie Moonves could leave the company, which would elevate execution risk.

Citi drops likelihood of CBS-Viacom merger to 25% from 50%
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet dropped his likelihood of a CBS (CBS), Viacom (VIAB) merger to 25% from 50% after CBS filed a Delaware lawsuit asking for a restraining order to prevent Shari Redstone from interfering with a special CBS board meeting. The analyst now sees a lower chance of CBS acquiring Viacom. As such, he increased his price target for CBS shares to $66 from $61 and lowered his price target for Viacom shares to $29 from $30.

CBS-Viacom deal could work at Class B shareholders' expense, says Stephens
Stifel analyst Kyle Evans contends that CBS (CBS) posted the kind of quarter that should fundamentally separate the company from many media peers. However, he said there is no more clarity following its report on whether its Class A shareholders will push for a combination with Viacom (VIAB) that "undermines Class B holders." Evans lowered his price target on CBS to $58 from $64 and maintains an Equal Weight rating on the stock.

Twitter's new partnerships highlight 'growing relevance,' says Baird
Disney's (DIS) and Viacom's (VIAB) announced live content/streaming partnerships with Twitter (TWTR) highlight Twitter's "growing relevance as a distribution platform," Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. He believes the partnerships should provide tailwinds for Twitter's video advertising business. 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.
