Defensive spread opened in Nielsen as shares extend gains

Defensive spread opened in Nielsen as shares extend gains. The stock up 25c to $26.25 today and has rallied 11% in the past four days on reports a final round of bidding for the company is in the low-30s. One player seems to be bracing for a possible sell-off in shares in the short-term: sold 15K Jun 29 calls at 85c to buy 15K Jun 20 - 23 put spreads for 85c. All three legs open (tied to 720K shares) and the three-way offers a max payout on a 23.8% drop to $20 or less over the next eleven weeks. The stock's (intraday) 52-week low from July 2018 is $20.53 and that was after a 25.2% earnings tumble on 7/26. Next earnings expected around 4/25.

Buy
comScore able to gain 'meaningful share', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould kept his Buy rating and $32 price target on comScore (SCOR), saying the company's latest partnership announcement with E.W. Scripps (SSP) is confirming the management's "financial viability and credibility" relative to Nielsen (NLSN). Gould adds that as the industry evolves from linear to digital video, he sees comScore having the assets to gain meaningful share.

Nielsen Q4 results better than feared, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton raised his price target on Nielsen to $28 and kept his Buy rating after its Q4 earnings, saying the results were "better than feared", with the management also getting "positive marks for increasing transparency and instilling confidence over execution". The analyst also raises his FY19 EBITDA outlook to $6.49B from $6.37B while speculating that the company may be taken private in the first half of 2019.

Buy
SunTrust not convinced of change in outcome probabilities for Nielsen
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton kept his Buy rating and $28 price target on Nielsen, stating that while speculation in New York Post about Blackstone backing out of its bid has hit the price by over 10% afterhours, a separate source reported that the bidding process is "still "very much alive". The analyst states that given the conflicting reports, he is "not convinced that the outcome probabilities have changed that much", adding that the risk-reward on Nielsen is looking "more favorable" with the stock now trading near the "failed transaction valuation".
