What are Wall Street analysts saying about TEGNA stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TEGNA stock:
  • 1. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We continue to like Premion as an asset embedded in the TEGNA portfolio, but believe the momentum and revenue trajectory will need to continue at a similar pace for at least another 12-24 months before investors even consider assigning some sort of valuation to it. Buy Current Price $10.54 Price Target $17.00 52-Wk Range $10.00 – $16.70 Shares Outstanding (mm) 217 Market Cap (mm) $2,289 Enterprise Value (mm) $6,020 Debt (mm) $3,731 Daniel L." (5/9/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "TEGNA reported strong fourth-quarter 2017 results aided by the buyout of Midwest Television's broadcasting stations, sale of CareerBuilder and spin-off of Cars.com. Moreover, in the quarter under review, TEGNA reported a one-time deferred tax benefit of $221 million, from the new tax law passed. For first-quarter 2018, the company also expects total revenues (excluding the terminated digital business) to increase by 10-12% year over year driven by Olympics, Super Bowl and subscription revenue growth. However, TEGNA’s operation in a competitive broadcast TV industry remains a concern. The U.S. broadcast TV industry has long been grappling with declining advertising revenues and global economic volatility. In fact, in the past six months, the stock price soared 7.2% but failed to beat the industry’s gain of 25.3%." (3/13/2018)
