What are analysts saying about Twenty-First Century Fox stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twenty-First Century Fox stock:

  • 1. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "Priceline announced yesterday a definitive agreement to acquire Momondo Group for $550MM in cash. We view this transaction as a net positive for Priceline as it strengthens its position in several key international markets and adds largely complementary assets to the Kayak meta-search portfolio." (2/8/2017)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Fox reported better than expected 2Q17 results. Driving the results was a strong contribution from sports (Television) and while Cable results were in-line we view the continued growth in domestic cable subscribers favorably. We raise our target price to $35 as we continue to see the company as monetizing sports well on a hybrid broadcast/cable/RSN platform. We remain Buy rated." (2/7/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "FOXA's F2Q results were ahead of expectations, with particular strength in TV and Film. There are many moving parts as we head into 2H17, and in our view the thesis remains intact with our FY17 EBITDA growth est. moving higher to 9.0% vs. prior 8.4% (film weakness in F3Q offset by lower PPA beat in F2Q). FOX remains our top pick for 2017." (2/7/2017)
  • 4. Pivotal Research analysts commented, " Fox reported fiscal year 2Q17 earnings on Monday which came in slightly better than we expected overall. We maintain our $36 YE2017 price target and continue to rate the stock Buy." (2/7/2017)
  • 5. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twenty-First Century Fox has outperformed the industry in the past three months, primarily due to back-to-back earnings beat. The company’s Cable Network Programming has been driving force backed by rising affiliate fees. Earlier, the company said that the pace of affiliate fees will accelerate in the back half of the fiscal year as 15–20% of the company’s domestic subscribers will be up for annual renewal in couple of years. Moreover, increase in content revenues at the Filmed Entertainment segment is also boosting the company’s overall performance. However, increase in programming costs and fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rate continues to act as a headwind for Twenty-First Century Fox. Further, it expects costs at Cable Network to go up in fiscal 2017. Increase in expenses may dent the company’s margins and in turn the bottom line. Estimates are stable lately ahead of the second quarter earnings release." (2/3/2017)
