Gray Television to sell WSWG-TV in Albany, Georgia

Gray Television (GTN) announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell WSWG-TV, the CBS (CBS) affiliate for the Albany, Georgia, television market to Marquee Broadcasting. Marquee currently owns television stations in Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, and Maryland. It also has a pending acquisition for WSST-TV, an independent television station in the Albany market expected to close on September 1. By combining WSWG-TV with WSST-TV, Marquee plans to improve and expand both stations' service to southwestern Georgia communities. The WSWG-TV transaction will close concurrently with the closing of Gray's acquisition of Raycom Media, which Gray anticipates will occur following the receipt of regulatory and other approvals in the fourth quarter of 2018. No additional terms were disclosed.

Gray Television price target raised to $26 after Raycom deal at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos raised his price target on Gray Television to $26 from $20 after the company agreed to acquire private broadcaster Raycom, stating that the deal will increase Gray's national reach to 24% and effectively eliminate the one major criticism of the otherwise strong operator. He understands the heavier debt load may give some investors pause, but Kurnos believes the positives appear to "vastly outweigh" the risks, he tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating on Gray Television shares.

DOJ broadcast investigation unlikely to be material, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker says her conversions with industry contacts indicate the Department of Justice investigation into various television groups for alleged ad-rate collusion is unlikely to be material. The investigation likely stemmed from the DOJ's review of the Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI), Tribune Media merger, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. She believes high levels of conversations about business likely drove the investigation and that it will be tough to prove that this lead to price fixing.

Reported DOJ investigation likely to pressure broadcaster stocks, says Stephens
After The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the Department of Justice is investigating whether TV station owners violated antitrust law in ways that inflated local ad prices, Stephens analyst Kyle Evans said that the negative news is likely to further pressure a group that he sees being "hard to own in any quarter." Evans added that, in his view, any miss within the group seems to drag them all down. Publicly traded broadcasters include Sinclair (SBGI), Tribune Media (TRCO), Gray Television (GTN), Nexstar (NXST) and Tegna (TGNA).

CBS downgraded to Hold at Argus
As reported earlier, Argus analyst Joseph Bonner downgraded CBS (CBS) to Hold, noting significant downside risks for the company from both the sexual harassment allegations against CEO Moonves and the board's attempts to prevent the Viacom (VIAB) merger. Bonner notes that if the Moonves allegations are proven true, he would be immediately dismissed, which could end the board's bid to remain independent and thereby inflict damage on the shareholders. As part of his research note discussing the "mounting risks", Bonner also lowers his CBS FY18 EPS estimate to $5.25 from $5.29.

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. BOFA CUTS ZILLOW TO NEUTRAL: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Nat Schindler downgraded Zillow (Z, ZG) to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $60 from $70 following the Q2 report and reduction in guidance. Schindler said the quarter indicated Zillow is taking longer than expected to ramp up the Homes business, Rentals revenue missed and the outlook was cut, and other revenue also missed, indicating the new construction opportunity is also taking longer to materialize. Zillow Class A shares are down about 17% in late morning trading. MORGAN STANLEY SAYS WAYMO COULD BE WORTH $175B: Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak increased his enterprise value estimate for Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Waymo unit from $75B for ride sharing only to $175B given his analyses for two other emerging business models, logistics and licensing. He believes Waymo remains on track to launch an autonomous ride hailing service in Phoenix this year and believes this business could be worth about $80B over the long-term. Given his view of Waymo being a key part of Alphabet's long-term value, Nowak raised his sum of the parts valuation to $1,550 from $1,400. He has an Overweight rating and $1,325 price target on Alphabet shares. GOLDMAN RAISES NVIDIA TARGET AHEAD OF EARNINGS: Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari raised his price target for Nvidia (NVDA) to $324 from $310 ahead of quarterly results. Unlike the past 10 quarters where the company handily beat Street estimates and raised guidance, the analyst expects a "noisy" quarter with the focal points being the upcoming product transition in Gaming, the current product transition in Datacenter, weakness in cryptocurrency mining, and potential disruption from the virus attack at TSMC (TSM). That said, Hari noted that his long-term bull thesis on Nvidia remains intact and reiterated a Buy rating on the shares. ARGUS CUTS CBS TO HOLD: Argus analyst Joseph Bonner downgraded CBS (CBS) to Hold from Buy, noting significant downside risks for the company from both the sexual harassment allegations against CEO Moonves and the board's attempts to prevent the Viacom (VIA, VIAB) merger. Bonner noted that if the Moonves allegations are proven true, he would be immediately dismissed, which could end the board's bid to remain independent and thereby inflict damage on the shareholders.

Imperial keeps Underperform rating on Viacom with $25 target
Viacom (VIAB) in Q3 missed on revenue due to a 3% decline in domestic affiliate fees and 3% decline in U.S. advertising, but earnings beat on "very nice cost containment," Imperial Capital analyst David Miller tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Underperform rating on the shares with a $25 price target. The analyst has a "tough time" applying anything north of a 6.0 times enterprise value to EBITDA multiple on fiscal 2019, which a implies $25 per share, given Viacom's lack of appointment programming, lack of sports, and lack of any franchise presence in film with the exception of Mission Impossible and Transformers. Miller admits, though, that an acquisition of Viacom by CBS (CBS) could prove his call wrong.
