What are Wall Street analysts saying about DISH Network stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about DISH Network stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "DISH's focus on acquiring and retaining subscribers that are profitable over the long term, is paying off. The company’s excellent customer service is improving retention, as reflected by lower churn rate. Further, the the launch of Hands-Free TV entertainment that allows users to control TV through voice assistants reflects company's intiatives to improve customer experience. Moreover, DISH has ample wireless opportunities with its extensive portfolio of wireless spectrum, valued at around $50 billion. However, subscriber loss due to stiff competition and cord-cutting is a major conceern, Moreover, escalating programming and content expenses, retransmission fees and failure to strike any deal with wireless operators are major concerns. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (7/10/2018)
  • 2. Macquarie analysts commented, "We cut our SoTP target to US$60 from US$68; we now assign a 1x lower multiple to its video business and take down our ’18 EBITDA by ~5% due to rising competition and secular concerns. Our spectrum valuation remains unchanged at US$44/sh. Impact Now is the time for Dish to insert itself. AT&T-Time Warner appear to be on schedule while headlines suggest ongoing discussions between T-Mobile/Sprint. Though Dish could benefit from the regulatory review process, both leave Dish with fewer potential partners. M&A options could include a three-way deal with T-Mobile- Sprint and/or cable, or a Silicon Valley partner like Amazon to build out a fifth network using its ~100MHz of spectrum. Neither of these are an optimal outcome (vs a clean sale of the company) for shareholders, in our view." (10/2/2017)
