UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on Scripps Networks Interactive (NYSE: SNI) price target raised from $48 to $55.

Analyst, John Janedis, said, "Despite ratings declines at HGTV and The Travel Channel, strength at FOOD and four key shows allowed the networks segment to post 10% ad growth, well ahead of our 6% estimate, driving EBITDA to $239M vs. our $219M and EPS to $0.74 vs. our/ FC $0.60. Given the strength of SNI’s ad growth ahead of the ratings turn at both Travel/ FOOD and upside to affiliate fees, we are upping our 2012 EPS to $3.35 from $3.11." (FY13 raised from $3.56 to $3.70)
