Nexstar named a Best Idea at Stephens

Stephens analyst Kyle Evans named Nexstar (NXST) as his "Best Idea," replacing CBS (CBS). He believes recent weakness in the broadcast affiliate group and an imminent close on the proposed acquisition of Tribune Media (TRCO) presents an attractive entry point, said Evans, who has an Overweight rating and $150 price target on Nexstar shares.

Tegna upgraded to Outperform on accretive acquisitions at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI upgraded Tegna (TGNA) to Outperform from In Line with a $18 price target, up from $16. Analyst David Joyce believes the market is misinterpreting the price Tegna is paying for station acquisitions in the "impressive" Nextar Media (NXST) required station sale announced last week. Tegna is paying only 6.7x EBITDA after re-transmission rate resets, other synergies, and tax benefits, making it approximately 11% accretive, the analyst wrote in a note to investors. Joyce said Tegna can immediately step-up retransmission fee rates to their levels and Tribune Media (TRCO) stations it is acquiring and will benefit from accretion and diversify to the portfolio.

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.
