CBS price target lowered to $62 from $72 at Imperial Capital

Imperial Capital analyst David Miller lowered his price target for CBS (CBS) to $62 from $72 following press reports that the company and Viacom (VIAB) have agreed in principal to an all-stock merger ratio of 0.596 CBS shares for every Viacom share. The analyst says that while this is generally consistent with where both names had been trading for the last 90 days, the ratio is below what he had been hoping for from the Viacom side, which was a ratio of 0.7. Nonetheless, Miller keeps an Outperform rating on shares of CBS.

CBS price target lowered to $60 from $72 at Barrington
Barrington analyst James Goss lowered his price target on CBS shares to $60 from $72, stating that following the company's Q1 report he believes CBS "remains steadily on a path it charted out several years ago" but he thinks a more conservative multiple is appropriate given the industry "turmoil and transformation" as well as management uncertainty. He keeps an Outperform rating on CBS shares, citing the company's high-margin retransmission revenue and success in the creation of new OTT ventures.

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.
