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.

Comcast initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson initiated Comcast with a Neutral rating and a price target of $36. The analyst says the company has "terrific management and assets generating returns, but broadband is maturing and video & voice are in decline. Mitchelson adds that while the Street is still forecasting 5-6% EBITDA growth for years, investors are beginning to discount Comcast going "ex-growth" soon.

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".

Bernstein 'not so sure' Comcast will give up on Fox assets
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger said that it appears that the market is starting to believe Comcast (CMCSA) will give up on its bid to buy assets from 21st Century Fox (FOXA) and focus on Sky (SKYAY), but he said he is "not so sure" that is the case after only one counter from Disney (DIS). He does not believe Comcast would put forth a $35 bid unless it was prepared to bid up to near $45 per share, Juenger tells investors. If Comcast ups its bid, it either wins Fox at a high price or Disney is forced to pay more, which both seem better than giving up to him, Juenger stated. In any case, the "winner" will be left with increased leverage on a cyclical business late in the cycle at a time when it needs to invest significantly to build its direct-to-consumer business, added Juenger.
