Apollo nears deal to buy group of Nexstar stations for over $1B, Bloomberg says

Apollo Global (APO) is closing in on a deal to buy a group of local television stations from Nexstar Media (NXST) for more than $1B, Bloomberg's Nabila Ahmed and Kiel Porter report, citing people familiar with the matter. The companies could announce a transaction as soon as next week, the publication adds. Nexstar had been attracting interest from rival media companies as well as buyout firms for the stations it promised to sell in order to secure regulatory approval for its $4.1B acquisition of Tribune Media (TRCO), the authors note.

Morgan Stanley upgrades TD Ameritrade, favors brokers late cycle
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys upgraded TD Ameritrade (AMTD) to Overweight from Equal Weight, stating that he favors discount brokers in a more volatile, late cycle environment. Among the group, TD Ameritrade has the most countercyclical revenue streams, with 27% of revenue tied to trading commissions that tend to spike in volatile environments, Cyprys tells investors. He raised his price target on TD Ameritrade shares to $65 from $61. Cyprys, who also sees growing risk to portfolio harvesting and dividends, lowered his ratings on alternative asset managers Apollo Global (APO) and Carlyle Group (CG), each to Equal Weight.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Apollo Global and Carlyle, favors brokers late cycle
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys downgraded Apollo Global (APO) and Carlyle Group (CG), each to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that he sees growing risk to portfolio harvesting and dividends and favors discount brokers in a more volatile, late cycle environment. On Apollo, he said he now has less conviction that cash performance fees can accelerate over the next 12 months given the more volatile market backdrop. On Carlyle, he sees risk to growing cash performance fees with increased market volatility. Cyprys lowered his price target on Apollo shares to $34 from $42 and cut his price target on Carlyle shares to $23 from $31.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim with analyst Robert Cihra saying the average selling price of the iPhone has increased a "dramatic" $220, or 40%, over the past 10 years, reflecting its "growing value to both consumer and business markets." 2. Kellogg (K) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Ken Goldman saying that while nothing at the company's investor day "necessarily disappointed" him, he also did not gain "much comfort that the bottom-line turnaround would be swift." 3. Apollo Global (APO) and Carlyle Group (CG) were downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley. 4. Conagra Brands (CAG) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Alexia Howard saying the frozen category has experienced positive growth over the past year, largely led by new product innovation from Conagra and Pinnacle Foods, but this now seems to be running out of steam. 5. Tenneco (TEN) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Armintas Sinkevicius citing its elevated leverage and limited free cash flow conversion in what he views as an increasingly uncertain environment for auto suppliers.
