Barclays sees Disney becoming 'core holding' again, upgrades to Overweight

Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar upgraded Disney to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $130 from $105. The shares closed yesterday down 91c to $116.18. The stock is likely to become a "core holding" again, Venkateshwar tells investors in a research note partially titled "The Force Awakens." While almost everything about Disney's over-the-top story is conjecture and success is not a given, the company has the "key mix of assets to be successful and the opportunity from this pivot could be substantial," contends the analyst. He believes Disney's investor day could prove to be a catalyst to frame the scale of the OTT opportunity and help the company build a credible terminal value "story"' around the stock. And the analyst thinks current media multiples are more about terminal value optionality than near-term core trends. "In this respect, there are a few other names with a credible terminal value story other than Disney," writes Venkateshwar.

RBC Capital nudges down its EPS view on Disney on higher park expense
RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall lowered his Q4 EPS view on Disney (DIS) by 4% to $1.35 and FY19 EPS view by 2% to $7.04 to reflect the company's recent pay raises in its Parks segment as well as the losses at Hulu from its recent announcement of tendering Sky (SKYAY) shares and investing more heavily in content. The analyst also keeps his Top Pick rating and $140 price target, noting that his investment thesis remains intact as the stock generally trades on the sentiment around "direct to consumer", or DTC, success.

Overweight
21st Century Fox resumed with an Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne resumed coverage of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) with an Overweight rating and $53 price target, based on his valuation of $12 per share for "New Fox" and roughly $41 per share for "RemainCo." Swinburne said he expects New Fox's cable networks to deliver 7-8% annualized distribution fee growth through FY22, which he notes is higher growth than he projects for the U.S. TV assets it is selling to Disney (DIS). He projects roughly $2.1B of annual free cash flow generated on average for FY20-FY22, ramping up to nearly $2.5B in FY23, which he sees being used for dividends, buybacks and likely more M&A.

Disney shares appear 'compelling' at current levels, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes Disney (DIS) shares appear "compelling" at a current valuation of under 13x "core" FY20 pro forma EPS given the company's opportunity to maximize the potential of the acquired Fox (FOXA) assets and scale a direct-to-consumer business. He attributes investor reluctance to own Disney shares to uncertainty about its ability to simultaneously execute on a large acquisition, launch a global direct-to-consumer business and grow, but Swinburne sees this "complexity discount" as an opportunity, he tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating on Disney shares with a $135 price target.
