What are analysts saying about Comcast stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Comcast stock:
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Both results and 2017 shareholder returns were generally as expected. The call brought incremental clarity on wireless dilution, a key focus ahead of the print, with upwards of $300mn a reasonable level, in our view. In addition, commentary likely soothed fears of a costly wireless build ahead. Cable OCF guidance was also inline, and it appears associated X1 costs are beginning to dissipate, setting the stage for margin stability/growth in 2018 and beyond." (1/27/2017)
Pacific Crest analysts commented, "Comcast retains an extremely strong position in broadband, and investments in video provide a competitive advantage that appears sustainable. This, and Comcast's scale, provide optionality that warrants continued ownership, in our view," analyst Andy Hargreaves wrote in a note.Related Link: Comcast Posts Q2 Results, But Are Investors Only Concerned About Its Recent M&A Spree?Hargreaves, who raised the price target on the stock by $9 to $74, noted that the rollout of X1 reached 40 percent of the base exiting the second quarter, and should reach 50 percent by the end of the year.The analyst said X1, plus Comcast's leadership position in broadband, should provide a competitive advantage for the media and technology company in video for at least the next 12 to 18 months.JustificationAs such, Hargreaves upped his 2016 revenue and EPS estimates to $79.6 billion and $3.49 from $78.4 billion and $3.44. The analyst also raised his 2017 revenue estimate to $82.3 billion from $82.1 billion, but cut EPS view to $3.72 from $3.80 on lower margin expectations at NBCU.However, Hargreaves recommends owning Comcast, as its leadership position as the leader in broadband and video should support solid EBITDA and EPS growth for the foreseeable future. "The balance sheet remains strong and leaves potential for upside to its capital return program, more strategic M&A, or expansion into adjacent businesses like wireless," (7/28/2016)
J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "We update our 1Q16 Comcast estimates today based on management comments at recent conferences. We raise video net adds and now expect Comcast to have increased video subs y/y, including 40k adds in 1Q and 15k adds in 2016, though we expect programming growth increases to be high. At NBC Universal our revenue comes down slightly but EBITDA is higher, due to a bit slower than expected growth in Parks but strong margins from Broadcast and Cable Nets. Overall, our consolidated revenue and EBITDA estimates come down slightly to $18.630b and $6.279b from $18.669b and $6.275b, respectively. Our EPS estimate goes to $0.79 from $0.80." (3/30/2016)
