    [$$] Why Media Deal Making Could Free CBS From Viacom

Ms. Redstone’s National Amusements, the parent company of CBS and Viacom, seems to have given up on the idea of merging the companies after months of bickering. In a recent court filing, the company  insisted that it no longer supported a deal.

    Viacom: Don't Expect More Buybacks or Dividends

    Don’t expect higher dividends or fresh buybacks from Viacom (VIAB). The question came up Thursday at a Gabelli & Co. conference after CFO Wade Davis said management was “a little frustrated, as potentially some of you all are, with stock prices.” “None of that is anticipated,” Davis said, noting a previously mentioned goal of paying down a debt load that sat around $10 billion at the end of Q1. “And beyond the de-levering objectives that we’ve highlighted for people, we have a pretty broad pipeline of tactical internal investments, as well as small M&A that we’re going to be working through those prior to thinking about restarting any sort of share repurchase program.” The company repurchased 2.1 million shares in fiscal 2016, and 21 million the year before, for a total of $1.6 billion.
