Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan upgraded Comcast Corp (NASDAQ: CMCSA) from Market Perform to Outperform with a price target of $61.00.

The analyst comments "We are upgrading shares of Comcast to Outperform ahead of 1Q results. We believe there is future NBCU upside from HSD strength, Peacock sub growth, improved theatrical revenue, and phased theme park reopenings. Additionally, we believe any Title II-related fallout likely won't join the fold until at least 2022. The COVID-defensive cable group has lagged in recent months, although we believe Comcast possesses a notable COVID-recovery component with its stores, parks, and theatrical business."
