Wedbush analyst, James Dix, reiterated his Outperform rating on shares of Viacom (NASDAQ: VIAB) but cut his price target to $40 from $44 after he reduced estimates for Filmed Entertainment. The lower PT reflects lower estimates and lower weight on SoTP valuation, given that VIAB has announced that a deal for a stake in Paramount is off the table.

Shares appear to be in a catalyst-free zone pending the selection of new CEO.
