Wedbush maintains a 'Neutral' on CBS (NYSE: CBS) price target raised from $33 to $35.

Analyst, James Dix, said, "Raising 2012/13E EPS to $2.46/$2.80 from $2.40/$2.73, primarily on Showtime online licensing revenue and higher international syndication estimates. Higher entertainment and cable networks revenue and OIBDA estimates drive our consolidated changes, as well as flowing through a bit higher core TV network ad revenue than we estimated for 1Q."

Wedbush maintains a Neutral on shares, citing content upside being offset by advertising risk (mainly in the U.S.)
