What are Wall Street analysts saying about Liberty Global PLC Class A stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Liberty Global PLC Class A stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Liberty Global is hurt by intensifying competition in the video, broadband, fixed-line telephony and mobile services business. The company continues to lose subscribers in most of the businesses. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, the launch of DOCSIS 3.1 network services, joint venture with Vodafone in Netherlands, buyout of UTV Ireland TV stations from ITV, takeover of Cable & Wireless bode well for the company's growth in the long haul." (7/25/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We updated our forecasts in front of 1Q results and a speculated German/E. Eastern Europe asset sale announcement next week. In a nutshell we left our rebased 1Q +3.5% revenue forecast unchanged, raised our 1Q rebased EBITDA growth forecast from +3% to +4% (on lower than forecast promotional activity + already announced Belgium 1Q strength), reduced our 1Q RGU forecast from +185K to +76K and updated currencies. We also conservatively reduced our RGU forecasts in the out years of our forecasts, offset partially by higher assumed U.K. ARPU’s. The changes drove a $4 reduction in our YE’18 target to $38. The RGU reduction was driven by: 1) aforementioned less low-end promotional activity specifically in the U.K. (which should show up in continued improving U.K." (5/4/2018)
