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 Network posted mixed fourth-quarter 2017 results, where the bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate, the top line lagged the same. In 2017, the company had 13.242 million Pay-TV subscribers, including 11.03 million DISH TV and 2.21 million Sling TV subscribers. DISH Network’s efforts to diversify its business from being a pure-play satellite-TV operator to an Internet TV operator should help it counter competitive threats from low-cost video streaming operators. Meanwhile, DISH Network continues to look for wireless opportunities with its extensive portfolio of wireless spectrum, valued at around $50 billion. However, DISH Network continues to lose subscribers due to stiff competition and cord-cutting. Regulatory fines, programming and content expenses, retransmission fees and failure to strike any deal with wireless operators are other risks. In the past three months, the stock price underperformed its industry." (2/23/2018)
- 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)
