Imperial Capital Says CBS (NYSE:CBS) Is 'The Cleanest Name In The Space,' Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) A 'Value Trap'

VIAB CBS

CBS Corporation Common Stock (NYSE: CBS) and Viacom, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAB) are a tale of two media stock trajectories, according to Imperial Capital. While CBS is a "top idea" at Imperial, the firm said Viacom has been a bearish story since 2014. The company has 5.05 million subscribers across CBS All Access and Showtime OTT, while new services such as CBSN and CBS Sports HQ are finding success, he said. Imperial's $71 price target is based on a target multiple of 12 times the firm's 2019 EPS estimate of $5.98, which is 9 cents above consensus estimates. The bullish case for Viacom's stock picked up momentum in mid-2011 and ended in early 2014, when the company failed to reverse ratings declines at its flagship networks, including Nickelodeon, VH-1 and MTV, Miller said in a separate initiation note. Since 2014, Viacom's woes have "gotten progressively worse" due to a combination of stagnant programming, development, the departure of top executive talent and the absence of any live or hit series on par with "Walking Dead" or "Game of Thrones," the analyst said.

Viacom CEO is sitting out Sun Valley, the famous dealmakers get together

VIAB FOX +1 more VIAB FOX CBS

Sun Valley is an exclusive get together of some of the world's most influential executives in media, tech, politics and sports with the idea that its host, investment bank Allen & Co., ends up facilitating some deals. Bakish and the powerful bank had a falling out over Viacom's failed attempt to acquire Scripps Networks Interactive, the owner of HGTV and Food Network, according to two people familiar with the situation who asked not to be named because they are not authorized to talk to the media. Allen & Co. had represented Scripps in its sale and ultimately worked with Discovery Communications, which acquired Scripps for $14.6 billion soon after last year's Sun Valley get together. The two parties are at loggerheads over CBS's move to dilute the controlling stock holdings of Redstone's National Amusements Inc. Redstone is said to have a heavy round of meetings scheduled for the event. And while CBS is tied up in litigation, Viacom isn't — leaving Redstone free to pursue sale talks if they arise.

Don’t Dumpster Dive for Viacom Stock Despite Recent Minor Uptrends

VIAB

CBS (CBS) has fared just about the same as Viacom during the aforementioned time periods, for example. The news had some speculating that a merger could be in the cards for Viacom, which is one of six companies owning 90% of media. The deal with Netflix is proof of an entertainment mega-trend that’s hardly blowing wind at Viacom’s back. And despite the recent bump, the stock has overall been beaten down, not just in the last year, but in the last five years. Right now, Viacom sports a forward P/E under 7, which is half of the long-term growth of 15% that’s on tap for the stock.

Viacom’s Bellator Wraps Global Deal With Streaming Service DAZN – Deadline

VIAB

Viacom’s Bellator Wraps Global Deal With Streaming Service DAZN. Viacom’s answer to UFC – the solidly rated Bellator Fighting Championships circuit – has set a new deal with international streaming service DAZN. Described as a nine-figure transaction, the new deal will see 15 fights simulcast on Viacom’s Paramount Network as well as on DAZN. The deal follows the $1.8 billion grab of UFC rights by ESPN for both linear and streaming, which will see the WME-owned circuit change homes next January after seven years on Fox. While ratings for the UFC have fallen well below their peak levels of a few years ago, the mixed-martial-arts bouts that it features, along with Bellator, still draw a concentrated audience of young males, a plus with many advertisers.

Viacom Entered Into Netflix Partnership Because It Had to

VIAB NFLX

Long-suffering Viacom (NASDAQ:VIA, NASDAQ:VIAB) shareholders found this out recently when the company joined forces with Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). Under the agreement, Viacom will produce content for NFLX. Although it’s an admission that things aren’t going well for VIA these days, offering content to a streaming service isn’t out of the ordinary. Its foray into the streaming media world will start with Nickelodeon-branded programming. From there, Viacom CEO Bob Bakish indicated that he wishes to include other network-based shows. Viacom had to do something, and the Netflix deal makes sense in that regard. But from another perspective, critics point out that the content partnership could drive more viewers to Netflix.
