March 13, 2018 8:39 am

UBS reportedly upgraded Time Warner to “Buy” from “Neutral” previously, while also keeping its price target on the stock without change at $108.

Time Warner shares closed higher for a second consecutive trading session on Monday. It has also been the sharpest daily surge since February 1st. The stock went up 1.56% ($1.49) to $96.75, after touching an intraday high at $97.02, or a price level not seen since February 5th ($97.50).

In the week ended on March 11th the shares of the multinational entertainment company added 1.80% to their market value compared to a week ago, which marked the first gain out of three weeks.

The stock has extended its advance to 4.09% so far during the current month, following a 2.51% slump in February. The latter has been the fourth drop out of five months.

For the entire past year, Time Warner shares fell 5.24% following a 49.27% surge in 2016.

Although UBS analyst John Hodulik expects Time Warner’s acquisition by AT&T to be approved by regulatory authorities, he also notes that Time Warner’s assets may turn out to be “highly attractive” to other media companies and online-based rivals, in case the arrangement is blocked.

The UBS move comes after AT&T, Time Warner and the US Justice Department filed pre-trial motions.

The UBS analyst also projects an “attractive 4-1 risk reward” for Time Warner shares, thefly.com reported.

According to CNN Money, the 21 analysts, offering 12-month forecasts regarding Time Warner’s stock price, have a median target of $105.00, with a high estimate of $114.00 and a low estimate of $90.00. The median estimate is an 8.53% surge compared to the closing price of $96.75 on March 12th.

The same media also reported that 19 out of 24 surveyed investment analysts had rated Time Warner’s stock as “Hold”, while 5 – as “Buy”.
