What are Wall Street analysts saying about DISH Network stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about DISH Network stock:
  • 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We continue to see potential issues with DISH retiring its core DBS 6 ¾% Senior due 2021 = in early 2021 DISH may have to decide if they are going to hand the keys to DBS to bondholders, pursue a debt deal that may disadvantage certain existing bondholders or tap into the leveragability available at the DISH parent (where most of the spectrum value resides = unlikely). We remind investors most of DISH’s debt is non-recourse to the DISH parent company where most of DISH spectrum resides + material cash. If we value the spectrum at cost, and assume DISH’s hands the DBS business to bondholders (valuing DBS at zero), our target would be $45 (not including potential reinstatement of DE discounts)." (2/13/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "DISH is hurt by subscriber loss in the Pay-TV business, primarily due to stiff competition and cord-cutting. Moreover, Sling TV subscriber base is increasing, but at a much slower rate. These factors negatively impacted top-line growth. Churn rate is likely to increase due to unavailability of Univision’s certain channels as well as HBO and Cinemax. Additionally, escalating programming and content expenses, retransmission fees and failure to strike any deal with wireless operators are major concerns. Nevertheless, DISH’s efforts to diversify its business from being a pure-play satellite-TV operator to an Internet TV operator is expected to help it counter competitive threats from low-cost video streaming operators. Moreover, DISH’s focus on acquiring and retaining subscribers that are profitable over the long term, is expected to drive growth. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past year."
