What are Wall Street analysts saying about Time Warner stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Time Warner stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Time Warner’s foray into new markets and digital efforts, and investments in video content and technology bode well. This is evident from positive earnings surprise streak of more than 20 straight quarters, including an earnings beat of 11.1% in fourth-quarter 2017. The company witnessed robust subscription revenue growth at HBO and Turner during the quarter. The company is now focusing on original programming, cost containment and increasing investments in key areas to enhance profitability. The impressive quarterly performance has led the stock to increase and outpace the industry in a month. However, management’s projection of decline in operating income across its segments in first-quarter 2018 raises concern. The company also expects HBO’s content and other revenues to decline considerably in the quarter. Moreover, its takeover by AT&T hit a roadblock due to DOJ’s antitrust concerns." (2/6/2018)
- 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We value TWX based on the valuation embedded in AT&T’s proposed acquisition." (2/1/2018)
- 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We make very modest updates to our TWX model, ahead of the company’s 1Q17 earnings report." (4/7/2017)
- 4. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of Time Warner with a Neutral rating and a $105 price target, a small discount to the AT&T (T: Not Rated) offer. TWX is a deal stock and will trade on the deal’s prospects rather than on fundamental values. Being a vertical merger with little overlap we expect the deal will pass regulato- ry scrutiny, but based on experience would not be surprised if it stretches be- yond the calendar year-end target. On a fundamental basis, we believe TWX should trade in the mid-90’s, about a 10% discount to the market based on cur- rent year earnings which should provide some downside support under the un- like scenario that the deal falls apart."

Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
