Dish leads bidding for Sprint, T-Mobile assets, WSJ reports

Dish Network (DISH) is leading the race to buy assets that the Justice Department says Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) must sell to save their $26B merger, the Wall Street Journal's Drew FitzGerald, Sarah Krouse and Brent Kendall report, citing people familiar with the matter. Dish is in talks to buy prepaid subscribers and wireless spectrum licenses from the merger partners, the people said. Discussions are expected to continue over the weekend and Dish may not reach a deal. Other suitors include cable operators Charter Communications (CHTR) and Altice USA (ATUS). Reference Link

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. 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. Wainwright with analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay seeing 40% downside risk to the stock if the FDA does not consider mirvetuximab to be a clinically meaningful addition to the armametum against ovarian cancer versus a 145% upside potential. 3. Dish (DISH) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Douglas Mitchelson saying he finds that risk/reward and potential catalysts across wireless and Pay TV are now in balance. 4. Post Holdings (POST) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jason English stating he views the recent pullback as a buying opportunity as he thinks transient headwinds were the reason results missed investor expectations in Q2. 5. Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Barrington with analyst Michael Petusky saying the company's turnaround is "now on a firm, provable footing".

AT&T, Dish satellite video combination would make sense, says JPMorgan
It would make sense for AT&T (T) and Dish (DISH) to combine video operations, nearly two decades after an attempt failed in 2002, JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick tells investors in a research note after press reports discussed a combination of Dish and DirecTV. The analyst believes the dis-synergies of pulling DirecTV away from AT&T's U-verse "in buying power would be value destructive." The analyst, however, does not think the companies are in discussions today, and he sees both "regulatory and personality issues that would have to be overcome to get to a deal." He reiterates Overweight ratings on AT&T and Dish and notes his price targets of $38 from $40, respectively, reflect no potential deal.

Hold
Dish downgraded to Hold at Pivotal Research
As previously reported, Pivotal Research analyst Jeffrey Wlodarczak downgraded Dish (DISH) to Hold from Buy as it appears that the Sprint (S)/T-Mobile (TMUS) deal will clear regulatory hurdles and given the 22.9M share equity deal with sister company EchoStar (SATS). The likely ultimate approval of the Sprint/T-Mobile deal likely "significantly pushes back the timing" for a potential Dish spectrum deal materially, he contends.

As previously reported, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Tal Liani upgraded Ericsson to Buy from Neutral, citing its 5G leadership and potential for longer-term share gains as well as the U.S. pressures on Huawei, which he thinks may add to Ericsson share gains. Additionally, the T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) merger, if approved, may help accelerate the 5G timeline, Liani tells investors. The analyst, who added that he had a bullish visit to Ericsson's headquarters last Friday, raised his price target on the ADRs to $11.40 from $10.40.

Following reports that Amazon (AMZN) is interested in buying Boost Mobile from T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S), Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan tells investors in a research note that he believes a deal would be "highly disruptive" to the industry, but would enable the merger approval for the Sprint-T-Mobile deal. The analyst sees Outperform-rated AT&T (T) and Perform-rated Verizon (VZ) trading down on the news, and Sprint trading higher.

State AGs may challenge Sprint, T-Mobile deal even if DOJ approves, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Paul Gallant said he believes that the Department of Justice is likely to approve T-Mobile's (TMUS) deal to buy Sprint (S) despite the Bloomberg report claiming that the DOJ is leaning against signing off on the agreement, with the main reason for his view being the belief that the White House really cares about beating China in 5G. However, he still sees significant risk at the state AG level, noting that Maryland AG Brian Frosch was quoted by Bloomberg as saying that "consumers are going to suffer in terms of price, in terms of quality, in terms of opportunities." Even if the DOJ approves the deal, state AGs have the authority to challenge and they might, Gallant tells investors.

Sprint, T-Mobile headlines positive for Dish, Intelsat, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Brett Feldman, while taking no view on the outcome of the proposed merger between Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS), laid out his thoughts for other industry participants following the Wall Street Journal's report that the Department of Justice is unlikely to approve the deal as currently structured. The analyst believes investors will initially see the headlines as negative for the other major wireless carriers, namely AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), since they "create uncertainty over long-term industry structure." Further, investors will initially see these headlines as a slight positive for tower operators American Tower (AMT), Crown Castle (CCI) and SBA Communications (SBAC) as they "imply less risk of material cell site decommissioning," Feldman told investors earlier in a research note. The analyst also thinks investors will view the Journal's report as positive for owners of excess spectrum such as Dish (DISH) and Intelsat (I) and a slight positive for cable operators like Altice USA (ATUS), Charter (CHTR) and Comcast (CMCSA).

American Assets Trust (AAT) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Todd Thomas saying the stock has surpassed his previous $45 price target. 3. Ball Corp. (BLL) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Mark Wilde saying that after an "impressive run," the stock is now trading at the upper end of its peer group range. 4. Charter (CHTR) downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Macquarie with analyst Amy Young saying shares reflect much of the operational and free cash flow potential and further multiple expansion hinges on its ability to set a consistent track record. 5. U.S. Steel (X) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Curt Woodworth saying after performing deep dive analysis on U.S. Steel Flat Rolled segment, the analyst concludes the step-function rise in unit costs the past several years coupled with loss of automotive share suggests the company is in a weaker competitive position versus peers entering the "Sheet Tsunami" period in the U.S. from 2021-2022.

Russell reconstitution a positive for Altice USA, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes the reconstitution of the Russell 3000 Index and Altice USA being added to the Russell 1000 Index, which becomes effective on June 28, will be a positive for the shares. His firm's strategist estimates that indexer demand will be 16,746,467 shares, or 420.6% of Altice USA's average daily volume for a notional value of $390M. Altice's notional addition is the 355 largest of 2,056 by market cap and accounts for 1.4% of the Russell's total notional increase, Cusick tells investors in a research note. Cusick has an Overweight rating on Altice USA with a $28 price target.

The analyst views his new target as conservative. He expects "another solid" Q2 report as Altice management "continues to deliver despite a relatively lean relative cost structure." Wlodarczak views the recent relative weakness in the stock as an opportunity and keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Fundamentals across cable remain strong, says JPMorgan
Sustained household formation and wage growth, along with a pullback in promotional activity at AT&T (T), the main competitor to most multi-service operators, keeps fundamentals across cable strong, JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick tells investors in a research note. In 2018, the U.S. added ~1.5m households for the second year in a row, "which sets up the wireline video and broadband ecosystems well in 2019," says the analyst. Altice USA (ATUS) and Charter Communications (CHTR) are both on the JPMorgan's Analyst Focus List, and Comcast (CMCSA) is Cusick's favorite mega-cap service provider. The analyst is "wary" of the multiple of Underweight-rated Cable One (CABO), but admits its operational momentum seems strong.
