What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lions Gate Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lions Gate Entertainment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lionsgate is expected to benefit from increased premium programming and Starz subscriber growth in the near term. The availability of Starz on Hulu, in addition to DirecTV Now, YouTube TV and Sling, is a key catalyst. Further, investments in esports and mobile gaming are expected to diversify the company’s revenue sources in the long haul. Meanwhile, estimates have been stable ahead of the company’s second-quarter fiscal 2020 earnings release. Lionsgate has a mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, continued investment in Starz is expected to hurt profitability and keep margins under pressure at least in the near term. Additionally, increasing investments in content, marketing and partnerships are expected to hurt profitability. Shares have significantly underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (10/15/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "Reaffirm OUTPERFORM : Our fiscal 2020-based price target is $21. The speculation regarding the potential value in a sale of Starz should help establish a baseline value for the premium service, with additional support from investment in the international unit. These elements should help establish a floor for the perceived value of the total company, providing added support for our favorable . Additionally, management’s risk mitigation skills highlight a measured risk-taking approach. Management continues its efforts to right-size the balance sheet and the sale of a stake in Starz International will support achievement of management’s leverage targets." (5/24/2019)
