Nomura Securities maintained a Buy rating on AMC Networks (NASDAQ: AMCX), and cut the price target to $63.00 (from $70.00), following an industry conference. The company's CEO, Mr. Sapan, mentioned that National Networks would likely be down “a little bit” in the 3Q in light of the lower-than-expected ratings of Fear the Walking Dead.
Analyst Anthony DiClemente commented, "At yesterday’s industry conference, AMCX’s CEO Josh Sapan indicated the company will likely come in short of the previously guided “relatively flat” 3Q16 domestic ad growth, largely owing to lower-than-expected ratings for Fear The Walking Dead, as well as for acquired programming. Therefore, we adjust our model to incorporate a more modest ratings trajectory across The Walking Dead franchise. In sum, we lower our 2016 and 2017 EPS estimates to $5.53 and $6.00 from $5.78 and $6.37, respectively. Given the multiple compression across Media, we also lower our target 2017E P/E multiple to 10.5x (from 11x), which equates to $63 TP."
Shares of AMC Networks closed at $51.42 yesterday.
