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. Additionally, partnerships with the likes of Amazon in the United Kingdom and Airtel in India are a positive. Further, investments in e-sports and mobile gaming are expected to diversify the company’s revenue sources in the long haul. However, continued investment in Starz is expected to hurt profits and keep margins under pressure at least in the near term. Additionally, increasing investments in content and marketing are expected to remain overhangs. The company’s shares have significantly underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (12/23/2019)
  • 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)
