The streaming service had been riding high as the head of the company insinuated live sports partnership deals may be on the table, only to tumble after BMO Capital knocked the company to a hold-equivalent from outperform.
Analyst Daniel Salmon bumped his target to $50 from $33, and cited recent outperformance for the ratings downgrade.
“We raise our valuation and target again owing to higher streaming comp set valuation and expanded distribution opportunities (e.g. partnership with Hisense and VIDAA) that add upside tension to subscriber estimates,” Salmon said in a note, according to StreetInsider. “Our new target implies downside to shares, however this is more a reflection of recent volatility than an incrementally negative view. With that said, we think secular tailwinds and recent execution are reflected at these levels.”
