Nomura Securities maintains a 'Buy' on Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) price target of $90.00.

Analyst, Mike McCormack, said, "New Time Warner Cable standalone broadband pricing details are emerging, and imply a much more enticing bundling strategy. By our estimate, standalone broadband pricing will increase by $20-$30 for each tier. In addition, the lowest-tier product, offering symmetrical 1Mbps speeds, will be priced at $29.95, which compares to a 2Mbps downstream product previously priced at $19.99. As a reference, in order to stream video services, typically a minimum of ~5Mbps is required. For a household looking to “cut the video cord,” under the proposed Time Warner Cable pricing changes, a customer would now have to pay ~$30 more per month."
