What are Wall Street analysts saying about CBS stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CBS stock:
  • 1. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are confident in current management to achieve its stated goals and drive shareholder value." (2/19/2019)
  • 2. Imperial Capital analysts commented, "We remain comfortable with the Coach brand’s global +LSD% comp sales growth trajectory. At retail, we note 3 supportive factors: 1) the recent Selena Gomez capsule that spanned across categories (handbags, ready-to-wear; September), 2) global excitement around the new higher-end Dreamer bag ($495; August), and 3) last fiscal year’s Signature re-launch (don’t lap this until 3Q). In outlets, the new Edit bag sits in the ‘best’ classification within the outlet product pyramid and reflects an increasing focus on improving outlet AUR with innovation at the high-end. In terms of KPIs, conversion remains the largest opportunity overall, aided by the filling in of product gaps, particularly in the $300-$500 handbag bucket." (11/5/2018)
  • 3. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We continue to believe CBS represents the best standalone content play remaining on the market and would not be surprised if a bid emerges before the stand-still expires." (11/2/2018)
  • 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CBS is benefiting from strong demand for content, rise in retransmission rates and expansion of direct-to-consumer business. Additionally, several strategic deals with Sinclair, AT&T, Nexstar and others have positioned CBS favorably, enabling it to meet retransmission targets much ahead of schedule. Moreover, the company has an average four-quarter positive earnings surprise of 4.53%. For the third quarter, CBS expects Local Media revenues to increase at a double-digit rate as mid-term elections are coming closer. However, currency fluctuations and higher expenditure for original programming might prove to be a drag.  Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (10/26/2018)
