Trump says 'unfair' FCC would not approve Sinclair-Tribune merger

In a tweet, President Donald Trump said: "So sad and unfair that the FCC wouldn't approve the Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) merger with Tribune (TRCO). This would have been a great and much needed Conservative voice for and of the People. Liberal Fake News NBC and Comcast (CMCSA) gets approved, much bigger, but not Sinclair. Disgraceful!"

Tribune Media downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Kyle Evans downgraded Tribune Media (TRCO) to Equal Weight from Overweight after the FCC announced last night that it has adopt a Hearing Designation Order for the Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) deal. He had hoped the revised divestiture plan would eliminate the need for an HDO, but now that it has been adopted he is more worried that there could be character issues standing in the way of the deal being closed. Evans lowered his price target on Tribune shares to $37 from $41.

Benchmark says Sinclair chose 'most efficient option' to try to close deal
After Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) announced it was amending its previously announced divestiture process to put what appear to be two of the three stations in question into a divestiture trust in an attempt to satisfy concerns voiced by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos said he thinks Sinclair has chosen "the best and most efficient option" to get the deal with Tribune Media (TRCO) closed. The real question now is whether or not this satisfies the character issues raised by Chairman Pai and the "ball is now firmly in the FCC's court," said Kurnos, who reiterates his Buy rating and $52 price target on Sinclair shares.

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. VF CORP DOUBLE UPGRADE: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Robert Ohmes upgraded VF Corp (VFC) to Buy from Underperform and raised his price objective to $96 from $65 ahead of the company's earnings report on July 20, telling investors in a research note that he believes Vans will be a "go-to-brand" for the back-to-school selling season. He said his channel checks indicate accelerating momentum in Vans, especially classic styles, and that the $50-$60 price point is attractive given consumers' shift to value. RAYMOND JAMES DOWNGRADES AT&T: Raymond James downgraded AT&T (T) to Market Perform from Outperform. Analyst Frank Louthan said he views the Department of Justice appeal of the Time Warner case as a negative and said it is a "frustrating delay." Louthan expects the suit to be a "significant overhang" for an extended period of time, which will limit share appreciation, but remains confident AT&T will prevail. AT&T is lower by 2% in late morning trading. STIFEL STARTS GALMED WITH A BUY: Stifel analyst Adam Walsh initiated Galmed (GLMD) with a Buy rating and $35 price target, calling it a "legitimate late-stage NASH play" after Aramchol recently proved itself in a Phase 2 trial as a clearly active and "very safe" compound for treating NASH. Galmed is trading higher by over 17% in late morning trading. MORGAN STANLEY HIKES WWE TARGET TO $100: Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said that WWE (WWE), by securing rights fees in its new five-year agreements with NBC (CMCSA, CMCSK) and Fox (FOX, FOXA) that are 3.6 times higher than its prior five-year broadcast agreement with NBC, has gained a "massive increase" in earnings power and "extremely high" visibility into the associated revenue. Given the recently announced deals, he raised his price target on WWE shares to $100 from $58 and kept an Overweight rating on the stock. WILLIAM BLAIR CALLS KEMPER PULLBACK 'BUYING OPPORTUNITY': William Blair analyst Adam Klauber said he views shares of Kemper (KMPR) as "even more attractive" after the recent pullback, which he attributes to selling pressures from Infinity Property shareholders receiving Kemper stock. Klauber said Kemper "continues to be our top conviction idea," and kept an Outpeform rating on the name. Kemper is higher by 4.8% in late morning trading.

Comcast added to Franchise Pick List with $41 target at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John Janedis added Comcast (CMCSA) to his firm's Franchise Pick List while keeping a Buy rating on the shares with a $41 price target. The analyst expects the "M&A driven volatility" to subside following Comcast's announcement to walk away from 21st Century Fox (FOXA). The stock remains attractively valued with the company's fundamentals "stable to improving," Janedis tells investors in a research note. He believes the outcome of Sky (SKYAY) "will not be a thesis changer" and that Comcast should see multiple expansion.

Potential Fox deal 'largely priced' into Comcast shares, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John Janedis told investors in a research note that he has noted healthy ad demand this quarter, and combined with "decent" ratings at key cable networks like Bravo, USA and Oxygen, Comcast's (CMCSA) NBCUniversal appears to be performing well. Janedis, who has a Buy rating and $41 price target on Comcast shares, believes a potential Fox (FOXA) deal is "largely priced" into shares and that the stock will trade higher when the dust settles -- either way. Following Disney's (DIS) $38 per share offer for Fox assets, he thinks a competing offer from Comcast would need to be at least $42.50 per share to be viewed as superior, adding that Comcast likely has options for Fox that include more than a straight cash offer.

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.

Sky initiated with a Neutral at Buckingham
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.
