CBS suspends search for new CEO, extends Ianniello as acting CEO

Joseph Ianniello has agreed to extend his role as CBS Corporation's President and Acting Chief Executive Officer for six additional months through Dec. 31, the company announced. CBS' board of directors determined it would suspend its search for another Chief Executive Officer. In a statement, CBS' board of drectors said: "Joe has demonstrated exceptional leadership during this time of unprecedented transition at CBS. He steadied the ship with some key appointments and a commitment to cultural change, and steered it forward by focusing CBS' operations around its growing direct-to-consumer strategy. We are very pleased to recognize Joe's talents and efforts with this extension, and we look forward to all that he'll continue to do to build on CBS' remarkable momentum." Previously, Ianniello served as the Chief Operating Officer since 2013, where he was responsible for establishing and executing Company strategy across all businesses.

Viacom upgraded to Buy at Loop Capital on de-risked AT&T loss
As previously reported, Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $35. The analyst cites the company's loss of its biggest distributor AT&T (T) having been de-risked which, he believes, raises the likelihood of a Viacom merger with CBS (CBS). Gould adds that despite the renewed distribution deal with AT&T, investors can accumulate shares at a lower price than a few weeks ago, resulting in a "positive risk-reward" for Viacom.

Viacom upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital
As previously reported, RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target to $36 from $31, saying the company's "less contentious" than feared DirecTV (T) deal improves its standing and "paves the way toward merger talks" with CBS (CBS). The analyst sees an implied upside for Viacom stock at over 30% on the CBS deal prospects and believes that investors should own both to hedge the exchange ratio risk of the potential transaction.

CBS Q1 to be impacted by higher content costs, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould kept his Buy rating and $59 price target on CBS (CBS), saying that while he is lowering his Q1 earnings outlook by 3c to $1.37 due to higher programming costs at Showtime, he is keeping a positive view on the stock given its valuation of just 9-times forward earnings. The analyst adds that CBS and Viacom (VIAB) may reopen merger talks with the AT&T renewal having been completed.

CBS price target raised to $65 from $59 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould raised his price target on CBS (CBS) to $65 and kept his Buy rating, saying the stock represents the "most attractive opportunity in large-cap media." The analyst expects the resolution around the appointment of a permanent CEO by the company to lead to CBS entering merger talks with Viacom (VIAB) within 60 days, even though the board appears to be having a "difficult time attracting outside candidates due to the uncertainty of a potential merger," with its initial March 31st target date to conclude its CEO search now having passed.
