BMO Capital downgraded CBS (NYSE: CBS) from Outperform to Market Perform while maintaining a $63 price target as the likely re-merger approaches.

Analyst Daniel Salmon commented, "We believe "the best mix shift story in media" is fairly valued and expect CBS will become a "deal stock" with VIAB soon. To be sure, that outcome is not 100% yet and we would be fundamentally productive on CBS in the mid-$50s. But we also believe the stock has worked through several catalysts, including an accelerated buyback this Q. Patient investors can hold and work through a merger, or we recommend FOXA if fundamental investing is still the priority. New Media pecking order: FOXA, TWX, CBS, VIAB, DIS."
