Sinclair struggles to sell sports deal to lenders, NY Post reports

Sinclair Broadcasting Group (SBGI), which has agreed to acquire 21 regional sport networks from Disney (DIS) for $9.6B, is struggling to find a lender to replace a $1.025B bridge loan it secured from JPMorgan (JPM), the New York Post's Josh Kosman reports, citing sources with direct knowledge of the situation. Sinclair is seeking a loan with less onerous terms than the JPMorgan one. but lenders are balking at the company's terms specifically that Sinclair wants the new loan to be 100% secured by the RSNs, rather than its TV stations.

Sinclair Broadcast price target doubled to $90 at Benchmark after RSN 'homerun'
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos doubled his price target on Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) shares to $90 from $45 after the company's "massively accretive, transformative acquisition" of 21 Fox regional sports networks from Disney (DIS). While some questions are still unanswered, Kurnos sees several reasons that Sinclair can keep moving significantly higher, including significant cash flow optionality through the RSNs, the fact that he thinks consensus for legacy Sinclair looks conservative through 2020 and his view that shares remain inexpensive. He keeps a Buy rating on Sinclair shares, which closed yesterday with an advance of 35% to $60.48.

Riley FBR with analyst Barton Crockett saying yhe company's deal to acquire 21 regional sports networks from Disney (DIS) at valuation of $10.6B "looks like a home-run". 2. ImmunoGen (IMGN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at H.C.

BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Disney (DIS) to $170 and kept his Outperform rating ahead of its Q2 results, saying he expects an "upbeat quarter" and positive commentary around June quarter's main events of Endgame box office and the first Edge of Galaxy opening. The analyst also believes that the company will join Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN) at the helm of global streaming while noting that its Star Wars themed lands its theme parks and the launch of Disney+ will materialize as catalysts for this year.

Overweight
Disney continues to deliver in every segment, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani reiterates an Overweight rating on Disney with a $150 price target following last night's "strong" quarter. The company's upside to revenue and profits was driven by the core business, which has largely been overshadowed in recent months in anticipation of the Disney+ unveiling, Quadrani tells investors in a post-earnings research note. She believes Disney continues to deliver in every segment, with notable upside this quarter at the Parks. However, the stock may remain range bound near term following the recent run as near-term estimates fluctuate given the lack of clarity around Fox's financial contribution, says the analyst. Nonetheless, she believes Disney shares have the potential to further re-rate in the longer term.

Piper survey shows limited risk to Netflix from Disney streaming service
Piper Jaffray asked 1,536 U.S. Netflix (NFLX) subscribers if they would subscribe to both Disney's (DIS) new streaming service and Netflix, only Netflix or only Disney+, analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. Piper indicated that the Disney+ price point is $7 per month, which it believes will prove to be only an introductory price. The results show that 73% of U.S. Netflix subscribers do not expect to subscribe to Disney+, 20% expect to subscribe to both services, and only 7% indicated that they will cancel Netflix and subscribe to Disney+, Olson tells investors in a research note. The results suggest Netflix's risk of share loss is limited to a small percentage of its base, concludes the analyst. As such, he expects Netflix to continue to "capture a significant portion of the tidal wave of traditional content dollars that are migrating to streaming." Olson maintains an Overweight rating on Netflix shares with a $440 price target. The stock closed Friday down $1.71 to $361.04.

BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham lowered his price target on JPMorgan to $116 and kept his Market Perform rating, citing the company's Investor Day presentation that lowered expectations for net interest income as well as performance of its corporate & investment bank and wealth management segments. The analyst believes that other large-cap banks, fin-tech companies, and specialty lenders offer greater opportunity, even though his price target still implies a 13% return for JPMorgan stock.

Jefferies downgrades Financials to Underweight on 'shocking' Fed meeting
Jefferies analyst Steven DeSanctis is "very surprised" by last week's Federal Reserve's decision taking rate hikes completely off table in 2019. The "shocking" Fed meeting means lower rates for longer, which is not good for Financials, DeSanctis tells investors in a research note. A "lack of catalysts and weaker earnings growth" going forward for the entire sector, not just banks, means an Underweight rating on the space makes sense, says the analyst. As such, he downgraded his rating on the Financial sector to Underweight from Market Weight. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).

Worldpay downgraded to Sector Weight after Fiserv deal at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck downgraded Worldpay (WP) to Sector Weight from Overweight after the company and FIS (FIS) announced a deal, quickly adding another mega-deal in the wake of Fiserv (FISV)-First Data (FDC) and Global Payments (GPN)-Heartland Payment Systems. The analyst thinks this transaction is likely to expand the M&A discussion around Global Payments, TSYS (TSS), EVO Payments (EVOP), and i3 Verticals (IIIV) and sees paths to accretion should management teams further endorse a scale strategy. Future processing competition could increase among Global Payments, TSYS, First Data, and JPMorgan (JPM), but it remains too early to gauge, he contends.
