WarnerMedia cuts ad sales jobs, Wall Street Journal reports

AT&T's WarnerMedia started eliminating jobs in its advertisement sales division, Sahil Patel of the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. These job cuts happened as AT&T attempts to reorganize the businesses it bought in the Time Warner deal last year. A WarnerMedia spokesperson said the reorganization included less than 20 job cuts and that the company does not expect any further layoffs. The layoffs were reportedly part of the process of AT&T working to remove redundancies from the merger of HBO and Turner into WarnerMedia. Reference Link

Verizon, AT&T selloffs present buying opportunities, says JPMorgan
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.

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.

JPMorgan downgrades BCE to Neutral, Rogers to Underweight
JPMorgan analyst Richard Choe downgraded BCE (BCE) to Neutral from Overweight and Rogers Communications (RCI) to Underweight from Neutral. The analyst cut his price target for BCE to C$60 from C$63 and for Rogers to C$69 from C$71. Choe also reduced his price target for Neutral-rated Telus (TU) to C$49 from $C51. Rogers on June 12 announced the launch of its unlimited plan offering for its premium postpaid brand and BCE as well as Telus quickly followed, Choe tells investors in a research note. The analyst says he's starting to see a slowdown in subscriber growth. In addition, potential average revenue per user pressure from the migration to unlimited plans creates risk to the premium multiples the Canadian Communications companies have traded at versus U.S. and global peers, contends the analyst. He recommends stepping away from Canadian carriers at this level and prefers AT&T (T) and Comcast (CMCSA) in the U.S.

Citi downgrades Verizon to Neutral on rising long-term industry risks
Citi analyst Michael Rollins downgraded Verizon Communications (VZ) to Neutral from Buy with an unchanged price target of $62. Rising long-term industry risks and the stock's current valuation premium are likely to limit returns over the next 12-months, Rollins tells investors in a research note. He believes long-term risks are rising for industry pricing and margins given the "widening array of possible outcomes" for the proposed merger of T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S). Rollins thinks national wireless firms that take more aggressive steps to shape their long-term strategic and competitive position in the industry have a better chance of creating value over the next 12-months. As such, he maintains Buy ratings on T-Mobile, AT&T (T), Telephone and Data (TDS) and U.S. Cellular (USM).
