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

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twenty-First Century Fox stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twenty-First Century Fox shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. Additionally, the company is expected to benefit from the popularity of its cable news and business channel. Fox News was the most watched cable network for the third consecutive year. Business Network had the most Business Day viewers in 2018. Moreover, Fox continues to benefit from higher affiliate and advertising revenues from Cable Network Programming and Television segments. Notably, estimates have been stable over the past seven days, ahead of the company's second-quarter fiscal 2019 earnings. The company has positive record of earnings surprise in the recent quarters. However, higher programming costs and foreign currency fluctuations may hurt the company’s margins and affect its bottom line in the near term." (1/25/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We continue to rate Fox Hold. Fox’s fiscal 1Q19 results were generally consistent with expectations. During the quarter, Cable Networks saw domestic affiliate fee growth of +9% and ad revenue growth of +7% with lower revenue from licensing of FX Networks content. The ad revenue result was particularly strong, with the outcome attributed to higher pricing at Fox News and FX as well as FIFA Sports 1. Domestic OIBDA margins rose by +6%. International affiliate revenues rose +10% in constant currency terms (though down -1% as reported) while international advertising was lower relative to 1Q18 in constant currency terms (-8% as reported). International OIBDA was down -24% in USD. On a combined basis, revenues rose by +4% while margins fell from 36.0% to 35.4%." (11/8/2018)
