Court revives copyright suit against CBS over pre-1972 recordings, Reuters says

CBS is facing a lawsuit revived by a federal appeals court accusing the media giant of copyright infringement for playing digitally remastered songs recorded prior to 1972 by Al Green, the Everly Brothers, Jackie Wilson, and others on its radio stations and online, Reuters reports. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California said that a lower court judge acted too rapidly in saying federal copyright law preempted California state law claims by the plantiffs, the report says. "A digitally remastered sound recording made as a copy of the original analog sound recording will rarely exhibit the necessary originality to qualify for independent copyright protection," Circuit Judge Richard Linn wrote for a 3-0 panel, according to Reuters.

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.

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.

Extraction Oil & Gas (XOG) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie with analyst Paul Grigel citing increased risk from Colorado Initiative 97. 4. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak citing its Q2 earnings miss, saying the gross gaming revenue in Macau has now missed consensus forecasts for the months of June and July. 5.

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.
