What are Wall Street analysts saying about Charter Communications stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Charter Communications stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Charter’s residential and commercial internet and voice customer growth continues to accelerate, which is evident from the revenue growth and subscriber gain. The recently announced partnership with Comcast to develop back-end software to support services for Xfinity and Spectrum mobile offerings is significantly positive for the company’s growth prospects. The collaboration will help in saving costs for both the companies. However, the company continues to struggle due to sluggish growth in a saturated and competitive multi-channel U.S. video market. Charter also faces stiff competition from online TV streaming service providers. We also view the company's high debt level and consolidation-related woes as potential hazards. Shares have declined on a year-to-date basis." (4/23/2018)
- 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We don’t view the CHTR investment thesis as rocket science, we see massive operational/synergistic upside that will overwhelm slowing PayTV/competitive market concerns. It is also very important to understand (as highlighted by the $13B in share repurchase activity in ‘17) that CHTR is effectively a public LBO that we estimate, at current share price levels, is able to retire all of the float (ex Liberty and Newhouse) by ’22 or 70+% of the total FD share count by maintaining leverage at ~4.5X and using excess cash flow to retire stock. This should act as a continual wind at the back of CHTR shares over a multi-year period. In addition, recall that Rutledge is very well incented to drive CHTR shares to the ~$600 level." (2/5/2018)
