Sinclair Broadcast price target raised to $45 from $39 at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos said Sinclair Broadcast Group reported "solid" Q4 results and offered a healthier outlook for 2019 than anticipated and he believes EBITDA and free cash flow estimates look set to rise. Management reiterated their interest in M&A in addition to ongoing share repurchases, said Kurnos, who sees the company's clean balance sheet leaving significant flexibility. He maintains a Buy rating on Sinclair shares and raised his price target on the stock to $45 from $39.

Neutral
Disney upgraded to Neutral at BTIG on strategy shift
As previously reported, BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield upgraded Disney to Neutral from Sell, saying the rating change was prompted more by the commentary from CEO Bob Iger on CNBC than by the company's investor day presentation unveiling Disney+. The analyst says he was initially inclined to keep his Sell rating given the overly "ambitious" 60M-90M 5-year subscriber target for the product, adding that while it is "nearly impossible to disprove a five-year projection for a service that has not even launched", he saw the $2.5B original content investment by 2024 as too small. Greenfield turned less negative on stock however after the company's CEO Iger signaled that the company is more aware of the need to "realize an even more dramatic shift in strategy" to a more consumer-driven model that will be required as its legacy businesses erode.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at BTIG with analyst Richard Greenfield saying the rating change was prompted more by the commentary from CEO Bob Iger on CNBC than by the company's investor day presentation unveiling Disney+. 2. Western Digital (WDC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Nikolay Todorov saying NAND fundamentals are bottoming and "there is a line of sight to cyclical recovery." 3. Dow Inc. (DOW), Huntsman (HUN), LyondellBasell (LYB), and Eastman Chemical (EMN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet, while Olin (OLN) and Westlake Chemical (WLK) were upgraded to Neutral from Reduce. 4. Waste Management (WM) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Michael Hoffman saying even with potential divestitures to get the deal approved, adding Advanced Disposal "dramatically lowers" Waste Management's cost of capital, reduces capital spending, converts more of the fleet to CNG, and stimulates tuck-in activity that should all drive sustainable free cash flow growth. 5. Sony (SNE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Overweight
Netflix Q1 earnings bar likely lowered amid Disney fears, says JPMorgan
Netflix (NFLX) shares are down 5% since the Disney (DIS) streaming service reveal last week, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth tells investors in a research note. This likely reflects a potential overhang from not being able to disprove the Disney risk until late 2019/early 2020, Disney's initial $6.99 per month price point and "strong enthusiasm" on Disney's content and management's tone around being "all in" on streaming, says Anmuth. The analyst expects Disney+ will likely be the most competitive streaming offering to Netflix, but he does not view it as a major threat to Netflix subscriber numbers given the company's "quality and quantity" of content. Further, given the "strong global secular shift" toward streaming, there is room for multiple companies to succeed, he contends. Anmuth continues to like Netflix shares into tonight's results as he believes the competitive fears will prove overdone. Netflix's first half of 2019 content slate is strong and performing well, and the Q1 earnings bar has likely come down over the past few days, says Anmuth. He keeps an Overweight rating on Netflix shares.

Outperform
Netflix price target raised to $470 from $440 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Netflix (NFLX) to $470 and kept his Outperform rating ahead of its Q1 earnings today, saying he expects "strong results" from the company. The analyst bases his price target change on his rolled out estimates for 2021-2028 and believes that Netflix still has "room to grow" internationally - particularly in India and Japan - while improving its per subscriber leverage on content spend and generating "steady growth of its consumer product licensing revenues." Salmon also believes that while Netflix remains the clear leader in global streaming, Amazon (AMZN) and Disney (DIS) can also be "long-term winners" in the sector.
