Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Charter Communications stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Charter is benefiting from its diversified portfolio offerings that includes video, voice services and Internet. Increasing Internet subscriber base is also a key catalyst for the company. Additionally, the partnership with Comcast to develop back-end software to support services for Xfinity mobile offering is significantly positive. The collaboration is cost-saving to the company. Moreover, Charter is expected to benefit from the launch of Spectrum Mobile service under mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) reseller agreement with Verizon. Notably, its shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. However, Charter continues to struggle due to a saturated and competitive multi-channel U.S. video market. The company is also facing stiff competition from online TV streaming service providers that is hurting top-line growth." (1/8/2019) 2.
