    Tax Cuts Are Great for Media, But…

    There has been plenty of optimism about media stocks and tax cuts, but that's only gone so far for Viacom (VIAB), which is falling on Tuesday on news that a merger with CBS (CBS) is far from a done deal, even if insiders are hoping to reunite the two media companies.  Rosenblatt's Alan Gould reiterated a Sell rating on Viacom today, writing that even combined, the two companies aren't big enough to create real value for shareholders in the shifting media landscape, and there aren't many synergies to recommend the deal. Elsewhere in media today, B. Riley's Barton Crockett updated his estimates for companies to account for their benefit from lower taxes, and he also upgraded 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to Buy, with a $46 price target, writing that if the Walt  Disney (DIS) deal gets done, which he sees as increasingly likely, Fox will have even more benefit than the average media stock.  Crockett argues that the upgrade reflects Disney's big benefit from the tax reform, the fact that Fox is still trading at a discount to the takeout offer, and that regulators can probably be appeased by selling assets, which Comcast (CMCSA) might be happy to buy.
