Citi opens 'Catalyst Watch' on Dish ahead of potential agreement

Citi analyst Jason Bazinet opened a "Catalyst Watch" on Dish (DISH) saying the company may reach some type of agreement with Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) to help facilitate the two firms' merger. This development, if it happens, is apt to be a positive for Dish shares for three reasons, Bazinet tells investors in a research note. Such a deal would reduce the likelihood that the Federal Communications Commission repossesses Dish's spectrum, would reduce the company's liquidity risk, and "may lay the groundwork" for Dish to ultimately transition from a holder of spectrum to a true operating business, the analyst contends. He keeps a Buy rating on Dish shares.

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". This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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.

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.

Ericsson upgraded to Buy on 5G leadership, Huawei pressures at BofA/Merrill
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.

JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick believes Amazon.com (AMZN) is unlikely to enter the wireless market via an acquisition of Boost Mobile, as reported last night by Reuters. As a result, he believes the selloffs today in shares of Verizon Communications (VZ) and AT&T (T) present buying opportunities.

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.
