Shares of Time Warner Inc (NYSE: TWX) are inexpensive on a relative and absolute basis, according to Rich Tullo, Director of Research at Albert Fried & Company. In a note released on Thursday, the firm believes Time Warner's two units are poised to "execute better" than Wall Street expects.

The firm has an Overweight rating and $90 price target on Time Warner.

"Turner looks poised for a modest return to growth driven by "low teens" escalating affiliate fees, a modest rebound in scatter market ad rates, programmatic advertising and new programming investment," Tullo commented.
