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 Global continues to grow in Europe through mergers and acquisitions. The spin-off of Latin American and Caribbean operations is expected to help the company focus on operations with long-term potential. Additionally, increasing Internet speed and robust performance of Virgin Media are expected to drive Liberty’s top line. Moreover, aggressive share repurchase activity will boost bottom-line growth in the near term. Further, buyout of UTV Ireland TV stations from ITV, long-term agreement with Netflix and takeover of Cable & Wireless bode well for the company's growth. However, continuing customer loss in most of its businesses remains a concern. Moreover, the regulatory headwind in Belgium and stiff competition in Switzerland do not bode well. Its shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (10/1/2018) 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) Has Liberty Global been receiving favorable news coverage?
