Disney price target lowered to $125 from $130 at Loop Capital

Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould lowered his price target on Disney (DIS) to $125, saying the bidding process for 21st Century Fox (FOXA) and Sky (SKYAY) could see another increase by the company to low $40s per share and up to GBP 15 per share respectively. Gould believes that Disney will end up acquiring both assets, with associated costs lowering its EPS by 18c per share. Longer term, the analyst keeps his Buy rating on Disney, noting that despite its premium valuation, it has "carried an even higher multiple on a similar mid-teens EPS growth rate".

Morgan Stanley calls Overwatch deal with Disney an 'important step' for esports
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said Activision Blizzard's (ATVI) exclusive live television coverage deal with Disney (DIS) for the Overwatch League not only has the potential to drive higher licensing revenue for the company but its also an "important step" in continuing to establish esports as more of a mainstream event and towards his $100 per share "bull case" for Activision shares. Nowak maintains an Overweight rating and $80 price target on Activision Blizzard shares.

Imperial sees $70M opening for Disney's 'Ant-Man and The Wasp'
Disney's "Ant-Man and The Wasp" will be released today on around 6,300 screens beginning today, Imperial Capital analyst David Miller tells investors in a research note. Based on conversations with select contacts at the exhibitor level and previous Marvel-branded releases, the analyst estimates the film will open at $70M. He sees total domestic sales of $210M and total global sales of $585M. Miller maintains an In-Line rating on Disney with a $108 price target.

Disney initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson initiated Disney with a Neutral rating and a price target of $114. The analyst notes that the company is "the best positioned traditional media company with its leading brands, global presence, scale, upcoming ESPN affiliate renewal cycle, and terrific Theme Park growth prospects". However, the analyst also believes that the Street has not sufficiently discounted the costs associated with Disney's push into direct-to-consumer streaming services, adding that FY19 will be extra challenging because of high film comps and major theme park project launches, while the affiliate renewals for ESPN will not begin until later in the year.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. MCDONALD'S CUT TO NEUTRAL: Cleveland Research analyst Steven Gojak downgraded McDonald's (MCD) to Neutral from Buy after his industry checks led him to believe that its comparable sale results in the second half will trend more in-line with consensus expectations. Gojak, who is still modeling Q2 U.S. comp sales growth of 3.7% for McDonald's, which is above the 3.1% consensus growth view, lowered his 2018 U.S. comp estimate to 3.2% from 3.4%, compared to the consensus of 3.1% growth. McDonald's is down 1% in midday trading. NOMURA INITIATES INTERNET SECTOR: Nomura Instinet initiated coverage on the Americas Internet sector. Nomura Instinet initiated Alphabet Class A (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Spotify (SPOT) with Buy ratings, and added that Alphabet and Facebook were the best positioned in this newly regulated industry. It initiated Twitter (TWTR) with a Reduce rating, saying that while it is a "stable long-term asset that has something for everyone," the firm believes the market is pricing in "a significant advertising reacceleration that implies a shift in ad spend," while the firm expects "stability instead of a reacceleration of growth." CREDIT SUISSE POSITIVE ON VERIZON, NEGATIVE ON AT&T: Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson initiated Verizon (VZ) with an Outperform rating and a price target of $58. The analyst believes Verizon should benefit from its "major $10B cost savings plan, stable capex spending, record low churn, and the benefit of tax reform." Mitchelson also initiated AT&T (T) with an Underperform rating and a price target of $29. Mitchelson said that AT&T will require greater scale and a shift to global direct-to-consumer distribution, stating that the elevated execution risk under its ownership structure and its wireless business look mature with little chance for stabilization in spite of the coming 5G technology. DISNEY VALUATION NOT COMPELLING: Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson initiated Disney (DIS) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $114. The analyst noted that the company is "the best positioned traditional media company", but believes the Street has not sufficiently discounted the costs associated with Disney's push into direct-to-consumer streaming services, adding that FY19 will be extra challenging because of high film comps and major theme park project launches.

WWE price target raised to $82 from $68 at Guggenheim
After WWE announced new five year deals for RAW and SmackDown yesterday evening, Guggenheim analyst Curry Baker raised his price target on the stock to $82 from $68, noting that the combined average annual value of the deals with Comcast's (CMCSA) USA Network and Fox Sports (FOXA) of $524M was ahead of his $500M a year forecast. Beyond the renewals, Baker sees a number of opportunities remaining for WWE, including renewals in the UK and India, incremental content deals, and WWE Network tiering. He keeps a Buy rating on WWE shares.

Disney entering 'transitional period' on Fox transaction, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall kept his Top Pick rating and $135 price target on Disney (DIS) but reduced his FY18 EPS view to $7.07 from $7.18 on the writedown of disappointing Solo film performance, 21st Century Fox (FOXA) transaction costs, and expectations of a smaller stock buyback. Despite the favorable trends in Media and Parks segments, Cahall says the company is now in a "transitional period" as it seeks to meet antitrust regulators' divestment requirements. The analyst notes that Disney stock will likely be range-bound "until the dust settles".

Discovery will not bid for Fox regional sports networks, says Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst David Miller says Discovery (DISCA) is seeing "unnecessary selling pressure" on media reports that the company is a potential bidder for the Fox regional sports networks, which Disney (DIS), through its pending acquisition of the entertainment assets of 21st Century Fox (FOXA), will have to divest, as per the Department of Justice decree. The analyst believes potential bidders for these assets will include Charter (CHTR), Liberty Media (LMCA), Altice (ATUS), and various private equity entities, but not Discovery. Discovery is fully occupied with the integration of Scripps Networks, the sale of its headquarters building in Bethesda, Maryland, as well as ratings issues at its core Discovery Channel, Miller tells investors in a research note. Further, he notes that Discovery already pledged $2B in additional sports rights to broadcast various PGA Tour events via its networks outside of the U.S. through 2030. As such, the analyst thinks the recent pullback has created an "attractive opportunity to either establish new positions, or for existing holders to lower their bases." Miller keeps an Outperform rating on Discovery with a $32 price target.

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.

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.

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.

Earlier today, Buckingham analyst Michael Harrigan initiated Sky (SKYAY) with a Neutral rating and GBP14.50 price target with 3% upside, above Comcast's (CMCSA) GBP12.50 cash bid and a premium to 21st Century Fox's (FOXA) GBP10.75 bid to buy the 61% of Sky it does not already own. The analyst tells investors in a research note that a higher bid assessment could be triggered by the U.K. Takeover Panel exercising its authority to mandate a higher takeout bid if the price paid by Comcast or Disney (DIS) to buy the 21st Century Fox assets that are in play implies a higher bid.

Shaw Communications Q3 results mixed, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Tim Casey says the Q3 earnings of Shaw Communications (SJR) yielded "mixed results", albeit with more "positive momentum" in the wireless segment even as the core wireline business was still weak. The analyst notes that adding the wireless product will improve the company's growth over the long term, adding that the wireline may also start to reflect the go-to-market strategy after the full rollout of Comcast's (CMCSA) X1 platform. Casey keeps his Market Perform rating while nudging his price target on Shaw Communications to $28 from $27.50.
