Fox RSN bid may be next focus following China merger approval, says Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Matthew Harrigan says that the unconditional Chinese government approval for Disney's (DIS) purchase of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) entertainment assets was as he had expected given the Chinese government's pro-globalization posture and Disney CEO Bob Iger's close relationship with Beijing. With closure of the asset sale to Disney, market attention is now apt to gravitate toward Disney's sale of the Fox Regional Sports Networks as a U.S. regulatory condition, with new Fox bandied about as a possible buyer, he contends. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating and $52 price target on 21st Century Fox shares.

Morgan Stanley raises 'New Fox' estimates after 21st Century Fox report
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said 21st Century Fox's Q1 results reinforced his conviction in his Overweight view, as he believes its strong distribution and ad sales results in the U.S. underscore Fox's pricing power. Following the quarterly report, Swinburne raised his estimates for "New Fox" and increased his price target on 21st Century Fox shares to $54 from $53 based on his value of $13 per share for "New Fox" and $41 per share for "RemainCo." The analyst also noted that Fox's international cable networks came in below his expectations, adding that he believes Disney's (DIS) acquisition of Fox's content production assets and Star India, along with gaining a majority stake in Hulu, are the primary growth drivers.

The analyst notes that the company will provide more details about its upcoming entertainment streaming product, Disney +, at the investor day in April. Gould also points to the management's optimistic view that the purchase of Fox (FOXA) will be approved by regulators. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Disney.

WWE shares 'on sale' after pullback, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne noted that WWE (WWE) shares are down by over 30% this month, which he sees as a "rare opportunity" to buy shares of a company that he sees having both highly visible earnings growth and growing intellectual property value. He attributes the rapid selloff primarily to a broader market rotation out of risk assets due to rising interest rates and concerns over achieving long-term growth, but he thinks this "does not make sense" given that WWE's EBITDA opportunity "is not a decade away, but rather a year away," Swinburne tells investors. Two contracts underwritten by Comcast (CMCSA) and Fox (FOXA) drive the bulk of its earnings growth and its financial outlook has no immediate exposure to ratings or cord-cutting, Swinburne added. While he trimmed his price target on WWE shares to $95 from $105 after bumping up his investment expectations for 2019, the analyst maintains an Overweight rating on the stock.

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.

KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma initiated Target (TGT) with an Overweight rating and $110 price target. The analyst says Target's investments and improved execution are driving stronger comps, telling investors in a research note that he thinks this is sustainable in the current environment. Rather than viewing Target as a participant in the Amazon (AMZN) vs. Walmart (WMT) battle, Yruma thinks its unique mix of consumables and high-margin apparel/home decor leave it well-positioned to take share from at-risk retailers.

Netflix, Amazon price targets raised at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price targets on Buy rated Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN) to $415 from $395 and $2,240 from $2,215 respectively as part of his broader research note titled "Victims of Risk-off Environment; Recommend Buying Weakness". The analyst states that these stocks have been among the weaker performers in the underperforming Internet sector, but should become "excellent performers" over the next 12 months if his view attributing the recent correction in the broader market to a late-cycle pause amidst geo-political uncertainty and Fed concerns proves to be correct. As part of this research note, Sanderson also keeps his Buy rating on Spotify (SPOT) but lowers its price target to $200 from $245, applying a 25-times forward earnings multiple in rolling out his valuation to 2022, with added currency related pressure against the "much less contentious" expected renewal rates in 2019.

Jefferies uncovers signs of Amazon expanding prescription drug presence
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says his proprietary checks of Amazon.com's (AMZN) moves in the pharmacy space indicate that the online retailer has finally made moves to expand PillPack. However, the initial expansion phase appears focused on offering pharmacy services to Amazon employees in Washington. In his most recent webscrape, Tanquilut came across a new prescription license in WA, two pending Rx licenses in New Mexico and Indiana, and pharmacy technician and packaging/shipping job postings all linked to PillPack's Phoenix facility. These new developments signal the beginning of Amazon's prescription expansion via PillPack, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. If Amazon were to rollout a more extensive PillPack offering to its own employee base, Rite Aid (RAD) could be most exposed to potential script transfers with Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) the least exposed among the public drugstores, says the analyst. He still believes that the impact of Amazon's pharmacy entry will take a while to materialize for drug stores CVS Health (CVS) and Walgreens.

RBC Capital analyst Seth Weber initiated ADT Inc (ADT) with an Outperform rating and a price target of $12. The analyst cites the company's position as a leading provider in the $28B North America monitored security industry serving over 8M customers. Given the 27% short interest, Weber says ADT is a battleground stock, but he also believes that the perceived risk of competition from Amazon (AMZN) is overstated and that the company's big free cash flows outweighs its high leverage.

The analyst states that Blackstone is seeing "sees considerable growth in real estate, private equity, infrastructure, tactical opportunities and credit assets", adding that while the $1T target is "aggressive", it is also achievable, requiring "continuing cooperative economic environment and fundraising efforts". Biggar also anticipates Blackstone's "fee-related earnings component to grow significantly over the next two years" as its flagship funds reach key milestones, helping reduce earnings volatility and yielding "more consistent" dividend payouts.

Ryan, who said Blackstone communicated a "clear line of sight" into $2 of fee-related earnings over the longer-term, keeps an Outperform rating on Blackstone shares.
