What are Wall Street analysts saying about Liberty Global stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Liberty Global stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Liberty suffers from continuing customer losses in the video segment. Additionally, decline in cable revenues and less than encouraging data subscriber addition doesn’t bode well for investors. Liberty is also facing significant regulatory hurdles in Belgium, which is negatively impacting results. However, launch of DOCSIS 3.1 network services and 50-50 joint venture with Vodafone in Netherlands is a tailwind. Moreover, the divestiture of its Swiss operation, UPC Switzerland will help it to focus on other profitable but less competitive European regions. Additionally, buyout of UTV Ireland TV stations from ITV and long-term agreement with Netflix bode well for the company's growth. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (4/29/2019)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We tweaked our RGU and financial forecasts prior to the 1Q report that resulted in overall no material changes to our forecasts or our conservative $32 YE’19 target price. For 1Q, we are forecasting core (ex-announced deals) RGU’s of +41K (up +11K from our previous forecast on CEE), +0.6% 1Q rebased revenue growth (mismatched y/y U.K. price increase + difficult U.K. mobile handset comp) [+1.3% for ’19 exacerbated by Telenet loss of MVNO beginning in 2Q], flat rebased 1Q EBITDA growth (mainly already announced significant UK incremental tax hit running through on UK tax, artificially high UK programming costs and loss of MVNO at Telenet). In key market the U.K. we expect steady improvement in EBITDA results with 1Q being the low water mark (-1.5% to +0.7% in 4Q)." (4/4/2019)
