Nomura Securities maintains a 'Reduce' on DIRECTV (NASDAQ: DTV) price target of $32.00.

Analyst, Mike McCormack, said, "DIRECTV’s 1Q results showed progression against many of our concerns, and we continue to recommend investors reduce positions in the shares. Incremental pre-SAC margins were again negative for the quarter, and we remain cautious on the outlook. Latin America subscriber growth continues to impress. However, with declining ARPU and pre-SAC margins, offset by a growing SAC, the transition into the middle market strategy appears to be costly. We are revising our 2012 and 2013 FCF/share estimates from $3.10 and $3.56 to $3.05 and $3.40, respectively."
