JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick downgraded US Cellular (NYSE: USM) from Neutral to Underweight with a price target of $36.00 (from $35.00).

The analyst comments "We downgrade USM to Underweight from Neutral and establish a Dec. 2022 price target of $36 (prior 2021 PT of $35). We base our valuation primarily on a discounted cash flow analysis that assumes a 7.0% WACC and 2.5% perpetual growth rate. US Cellular currently trades at 6.6x our 2021 EBITDA forecast compared with an average of 6.6-7.8x for other wireless carriers. However, US Cellular trades at 5.0x when excluding the L.A. partnership stake."
