The analyst believes the media transaction reported last night makes sense for both AT&T (T) and Discovery. Discovery needs additional scale in terms of content and advertising spending to compete effectively in a direct-to-consumer world, and AT&T "potentially brings sufficient scale on both dimensions," (5/17/2021)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Discovery has been hit hard by the coronavirus-led disruption on advertising demand and spending. Its fourth-quarter 2020 results reflected sluggishness in the U.S. Networks’ advertising business. Further, incremental spending on direct-to-consumer initiatives and international business are likely to keep margins under pressure. Notably, higher selling, general and administrative expenses hurt profitability in the reported quarter. Its leveraged balance sheet remains a concern. Nevertheless, Discovery’s fourth-quarter results reflected recovery in advertising sending, primarily in the international markets. The company witnessed strong viewing share growth in the United Kingdom, Spain and Portugal. Additionally, its solid free cash flow generating ability boost investor confidence. Shares have outperformed the industry year to date." (4/27/2021)
