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 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. Sling TV subscriber base is increasing, which is a positive for the company’s top-line growth. Moreover, 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, DISH has ample wireless opportunities with its extensive portfolio of wireless spectrum, valued at around $50 billion. However, 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." (9/17/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We remind investors that DISH’s core DBS business is in effect a declining annuity stream that in 2Q declined at a slower than expected pace. More importantly, CEO Ergen gave a spirited defense of step 1 of his spectrum build out, highlighted the fact that they were effectively 2/3 through an investment in a best in class 5G network (via their attractive ~$20B in spectrum) at what would be a best in class network at total build-out cost of $1 MHz/Pop and implied he would expect “many, many, many” entities would be interested in investing in his 5G business plan (and also implied in approximately a year those parties will be revealed). In addition, Ergen appears to believe they will receive the substantial lost DE entity discount (which is not in our forecast target)." (8/6/2018)
