Call spreads in Verizon Communications as shares extend gains

Call spreads in Verizon Communications as shares extend gains. The stock up 10c to $59.86 and moving multi-month highs after a four-day 4.1% winning streak. One player in the options market buys 8.5K May 60 - 62.5 call spreads for 93c. The vertical trades more than 10K and appears to roll short calls up 2.5 strikes: the May 60 calls saw notable opening selling Monday last week when, with shares near $58, 10.8K traded VWAP 52.2c on 3/18. Rolling the position up 2.5 strikes today expresses the view that shares will see limited upside through earnings on 4/23 and the adjustment is probably part of an overwrite against a stock position.

Dish downgraded to Reduce from Hold at HSBC
HSBC analyst Sunil Rajgopal downgraded Dish (DISH) to Reduce from Hold and cut his price target on the shares to $24 from $38, advocating that investors choose "sturdy carriers" such as Verizon (VZ), T-Mobile (TMUS), AT&T (T) and Comcast (CMCSA). For 2019, Rajgopal expects more fragmentation in the content/pay-TV business as more players enter the OTT content market and he expects the pay TV base to shrink further.

Hold
Adtran downgraded to Hold at Needham on margin pressure
As previously reported, Needham analyst Richard Valera downgraded Adtran to Hold from Buy, saying that while the company posted solid Q4 results, the quarter was aided "by the re- emergence of Telmex" and warns that its shift toward international business will results in "structurally lower margins" and limited earnings power. The analyst further notes that he had previously anticipated AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) deals as "potentially significant" North America revenue opportunities, but now sees "little confidence either of these programs will ramp substantially over the near to medium term." Valera adds that the recent bounce in Adtran stock has taken its price to within 10% of his prior target, justifying a neutral stance.

Verizon has network focus in its 'DNA,' says Wells Fargo
After attending Verizon's analyst day centered around the company's "very detailed 5G strategy," Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche noted that there were a lot of new faces on the stage compared to five years ago but she said the company "appreciates the network is THE # 1 focus" and "that network focus...is fully in this company's DNA it seems." The analyst, who favors the way Verizon is "doubling down on what it knows best," namely the network, left the meeting with confidence a 5G plan is in place. She keeps an Outperform rating on Verizon shares and raised her price target on the stock to $65 from $60.

5G financial impact won't be felt by Verizon until 2021/22, says Morgan Stanley
After attending Verizon's first analyst day in seven years, Morgan Stanley analyst Simon Flannery said the company provided "a lot of helpful material" on its 5G plans, but provided limited incremental information around deployment timelines or business models. The analyst, said it seems that the financial impact of 5G will not be felt by Verizon until the 2021/22 period, also said that it appears to him that operational momentum from 2018 is continuing into 2019. Flannery maintains an Equal Weight rating on Verizon with a $58 price target on the shares.
