Pivotal Research Group reiterated its Hold rating on Discovery Communications (NASDAQ: DISCA) but raised its price target from $55 to $57.

Pivotal Research Group commented, "Discovery Communications announced transactions to expand into Nordic markets and France. … The properties include free-to-air TV businesses in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Assets also include a strong radio network business. Margins on the assets are in the low-20s. On our initial take on the transaction, we assume expansion given what we expect will be content and other synergies with the rest of Discovery's operations) with a revenue mix that is heavily skewed towards advertising."
