What are Wall Street analysts saying about Twenty-First Century Fox Inc Class A stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twenty-First Century Fox Inc Class A stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twenty-First Century Fox continues to benefit from rise in retransmission and robust advertising demand for its live content and entertainment product. The company is now rumored to bid higher for the remaining 61% stake in Europe’s leading pay-TV broadcaster Sky plc to counter Comcast's aggressive bid. Further, the ongoing tussle between Disney and Comcast over Fox’s assets bodes well for investors. Although Disney’s latest bid is beneficial for shareholders, Comcast is highly anticipated to raise its all-cash bid, providing better returns to investors. However, increasing cable networking programming cost is a headwind." (7/10/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We recognize some upside potential to this number if Disney makes a higher bid vs. its prior offer, which we see reflected in the slightly higher trading levels of Fox stock. However, we are also mindful of a potential outcome involving a division of the assets Fox would be selling. We continue to rate Fox Hold. Comcast has now formally made its bid to buy the same Fox assets Disney previously agreed to purchase. For Fox shareholders, this is clearly a positive event, and any upside that might follow from Disney responding with a higher bid of its own will be even more positive." (6/13/2018)
