21st Century Fox says 'looks forward' to final decision clearing transaction

21st Century Fox (FOXA) said it "welcomes" the announcement by the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport that he intends to accept the final undertakings proposed by 21CF and The Walt Disney Company (DIS) with a view to clearing 21CF's proposed acquisition of the remaining shares in Sky (SKYAY) on media plurality grounds. "The undertakings are now subject to a 15-day public consultation. Under the final proposal submitted by 21CF, Sky News would be divested to Disney following the close of the Sky transaction and 21CF has committed to increase its funding of Sky News to 15 years under Disney's ownership. We now look forward to a final decision clearing our transaction."

Wells Fargo expects bidding war for Sky
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker expects a bidding war for Sky (SKYAY). The analyst believes Sky appears to be more accretive to Disney (DIS)-Fox (FOXA) but more strategic for Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK). Ultimately, Ryvicker thinks the latter with win but not without a fight from Disney/Fox.

Sky upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie
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.

Disney trades at 'historic discount' while building out OTT, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes Disney's (DIS) new segment presentation could benefit shares by highlighting Disney's Over-the-top, or OTT, opportunity and providing visibility into the earnings power of its core businesses. If Fox (FOXA) is included and Hulu is consolidated, Swinburne estimates Disney's OTT and Direct-to-consumer businesses grow to roughly $6.5B in gross annual revenues by FY20, while noting that the stock is currently trading at a historical discount to the S&P 500. He maintains an Overweight rating and $130 price target on Disney shares.

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.

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.

Nomura sees 'protracted bidding war' for Fox assets

He sees the stage being set "for a protracted bidding war." The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on Comcast with a $40 price target.

Disney likely to top bid for Fox entertainment assets, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that Comcast (CMCSA) has bid $65B for a cash offer for Fox's (FOXA) entertainment assets, a 19% premium to Disney's offer (DIS). The analyst believes it does make strategic/financial sense, and Comcast has a great track record on acquisitions. Further, Horan thinks a joint NBC/Fox would be a content powerhouse while expanding the company's presence in Europe with Sky (SKYAY), and slashing OTT video risk. Nonetheless, the analyst believes Disney is likely to top the bid. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $42 price target on Comcast's shares.

Disney downgraded to Sell from Hold at Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Disney to Sell with an unchanged price target of $93. The stock closed Friday up 10c to $108.85. The recent rally in the shares is unwarranted and fails to reflect that a higher price paid for Fox's (FOXA) entertainment assets would reduce the value of Disney to its shareholders, Wieser tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes the acquisition not being completed would also be negative for Disney as it would mean the company would be unable to realize the synergies it expects to produce from the transaction. The strategic position of Disney would "further be weakened relative to what would otherwise be possible without the transaction," Wieser contends.
