Wunderlich Says Cabelvision is Worth $25 per Share in Takeout
In a report published by Wunderlich analyst Matthew Harrigan Monday morning, Cablevision Systems (NYSE: CVC) was highlighted to be "conservatively worth" $25 per share in a potential acquisition by Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) or Liberty Media (NASDAQ: LMCA).
Harrigan went on to say that Cablevision and Time Warner Cable have major synergies, but that the Dolan family's 73% voting position may favor Liberty Media over Time Warner in a deal.
The total merger benefits between Time Warner Cable and Cablevision were calculated at $1.9 billion or $7 per share based on fiscal year 2014 EPS estimates.
Following the report, Cablevision traded up 5.47 percent to $17.74, while Time Warner Cable is down 0.04 percent to $112.42, and Liberty Media is up 0.78 percent to $127.75.
