Citigroup downgraded shares of Cablevision Systems (NYSE: CVC) from Neutral to Sell and maintained a $17 price target.

In the note, Citigroup analyst Jason Bazinet explained that Windstream has opened the door into the REIT space for other Telcom & Cable firms. However, Bazinet said it is unlikely that Cablevision will convert to a REIT because it would complicate a future sale.

Bazinet's downgrade of Cablevision comes amid the recent run-up in its share price and presumed low probability that the company will convert to a REIT.
