Nomura sees 'protracted bidding war' for Fox assets

Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal expects Disney (DIS) to counter Comcast's (CMCSA) offer for 21st Century Fox's (FOXA) assets, which include Premier League sports rights, premium content, and Hulu stake. He sees the stage being set "for a protracted bidding war." The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on Comcast with a $40 price target.

Comcast may offer 25% premium to Disney for Fox, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that a U.S. District Court Judge approved AT&T's (T) acquisition of Time Warner (TWX), with no conditions, stating the Department of Justice did not prove the merger would harm competition. The judge also stated he would deny any requests by the DoJ to stay the decision, and as such, the companies are free to close the deal even if the ruling is appealed, he adds. The analyst expects Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) will now offer a 25% premium to Disney (DIS) for Fox (FOXA). Horan has a Perform rating on AT&T shares.

Comcast might make competitive offer for Fox soon, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brandon Nispel notes that Judge Richard Leon ruled in favor of AT&T (T), without condition, in a suit brought against it by the Department of Justice over its acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). The analyst believes this decision could drive additional media M&A expectations and thinks a formal offer by Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) for 21st Century Fox (FOXA) can come as soon as today. Nispel believes 21st Century Fox is the last of the scaled media companies, which makes it appropriate for Comcast to aggressively pursue the company. Additionally, the analyst does not see Verizon (VZ) as a likely buyer of traditional media assets

21st Century Fox price target raised to $47 from $43 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould raised his price target on 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to $47 following yesterday's confirmation of a Disney (DIS) counterbid from Comcast (CMCSA), saying he expects "at least one additional bid" from each potential acquirer. He also believe that while a Disney merger "offers more regulatory certainty" and its long-term stock value is superior to that of Comcast, the difference in the higher offer from Comcast is too great, requiring more cash or a stock price collar from the former. Gould keeps his Buy rating on 21st Century Fox.

RBC Capital backs Outperform rating on Netflix post U.S., international surveys
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney reiterated an Outperform rating and $360 price target on Netflix (NFLX) shares following "positive" results from surveys in the U.S., France and German that found higher satisfaction trends, a rising willingness to pay for streaming content and high penetration levels. In the U.S., Mahaney noted that the survey found 55% of respondents watch Netflix, a significant lead over YouTube (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN) and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, TWX), adding that while Amazon is showing the fastest penetration growth among Streaming services, three years of data show that Prime customers are "more likely to also subscribe to Netflix." He views Netflix as one of the best derivatives off the strong growth in online video viewing and in Internet connect devices.

WWE price target raised to $70 from $45 at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin raised her price target on WWE to $70 following press reports that the company will renew its USA Network / NBC deals for 3-times its current value and also license its SmackDown programming to Fox (FOXA) for 3-times its current value. The analyst adds that the new contract payments are expected to begin in Q4 of 2019. Martin also notes that the terms suggest that WWE's direct-to-consumer offering did not cannibalize the US TV license growth, keeping her Buy rating on the shares.
