Baird Shares Outlook On Telecom & Cable


In a report issued Monday, analysts at Baird shared a preview of second quarter results for connected technology companies. Consistent with the trends seen recently, the experts anticipate robust growth among cable companies, and mixed results for telecoms, as T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ: TMUS) continues to increase its wireless market share.

In addition, Baird continues to favor Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) among the service providers it covers. However, the experts acknowledge AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) offer attractive dividend yields and cash flows, especially taking into account the current market/yield environment.

Baird envisions sustained weakness in smartphone upgrade rates, “directionally negative for smartphone providers,” even for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL).

Baird maintains the following ratings and price targets:

  • Charter Communications, Inc. - Class A (NASDAQ: CHTR), Neutral, $230
  • Comcast, Outperform, $67
  • Sprint Corp (NYSE: S), Neutral, $3
  • AT&T, Neutral $41
  • T-Mobile, Neutral, $42
  • Verizon, Neutral, $54

Disclosure: Javier Hasse holds no interest in any of the securities or entities mentioned above.
