What are Wall Street analysts saying about TEGNA stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TEGNA stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "TEGNA’s acquisition of two leading stations, WTOL and KWES, in Ohio and Texas is expected to be accretive to its free cash flow immediately and to earnings in less than a year after close. Additionally, Premion, which is helping the company reach customers beyond its traditional business, has expanded its reach to 200 markets from 39 markets earlier. Moreover, the company continues to benefit from higher paid-up subscribers, both MVPD and OTT subscribers, and increased revenues from political advertisements. Political revenues recorded an all-time high, including presidential election years and came well above the previous mid-term election in 2014. However, the company operates in a competitive broadcast TV industry, which has long been grappling with declining advertising revenues. Moreover, its shares have also underperformed the industry over the past year." (1/15/2019)
