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 is suffering from continued customer loss in the video segment, primarily due to stiff competition. Additionally, declining cable revenues, and discouraging data and voice subscriber addition do not bode well for the stock. Weak performance by Virgin Media hurt third-quarter 2019 results. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, the company is expected to benefit from increasing Internet speed and expanding mobile subscriber base. Virgin Media’s net postpaid subscriber additions were impressive in the reported quarter. Moreover, increased ARPU owing to price increases is a positive for the top line. The company’s plan to reduce corporate costs is expected to boost profitability. Further, Liberty Global’s improving liquidity position makes it an attractive bet for investors." (11/11/2019)
  • 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)
