What are Wall Street analysts saying about Nexstar Media Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nexstar Media Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nexstar Broadcasting Group currently owns, operates, programs or provides sales and other services to television stations in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, Texas, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama and New York. Nexstar's television station group includes affiliates of NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and UPN. " (10/15/2019)
  • 2. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We note that Nexstar can get creative to sell additional top-tier markets without significantly impacting EBITDA by moving non- big-4-affiliated or independent stations in those markets (6 markets between 3-25 fit that criteria; see page 2 for overlap and prior planned divestitures from SBGI). We think a sub 9x buyer’s multiple (on highly conservative synergies and material retrans and political upside in 2020) is very reasonable. We are establishing a new $115 per share price target using a sum-of-the-parts analysis. We estimate that, ex-WGNA and ex-Food, blended 2019/2020 TV EBITDA will be $1.4 billion." (12/4/2018)
