UBS analyst Tom Beadle…

UBS analyst Tom Beadle upgraded News Corp. to Buy from Neutral with a price target of A$39.50, up from A$35. The analyst likes the long-term prospects of the media group's Dow Jones unit. Beadle now assumes Dow Jones holds its current EBITDA margin of about 21% into perpetuity and he raised its valuation to 11.6 times 2022 EBITDA from 8.9 times previously. The New York Times, a key rival, trades at 19 times 2022 EBITDA, Beadle tells investors in a research note.
