Wolfe Research analyst John Janedis upgraded iHeartMedia (NASDAQ: IHRT) from Peerperform to Outperform with a price target of $24.00.

The analyst comments "Though the pandemic has had a major impact on core radio advertising, it allowed mgmt. to successfully accelerate the execution of its digital strategy, while also taking out $250MM+ of permanent savings from its cost structure. With IHRT well positioned to reap the benefits of the cyclical recovery in core & the inflection in digital, we upgrade the stock to OP (from PP) using a SOTP methodology to better reflect the value of the assets."
