  • Cablevision Systems Corporation Shares Rise on Q3 Earnings Beat; Dividend Maintained (CVC)

    Regional cable TV and Internet provider Cablevision Systems Corporation (CVC) on Friday announced better-than-expected third quarter earnings results, reversing a year-ago loss. Cablevision's Q3 Earnings in Brief - Net income totaled $294.6 million, or $1.10 per share, reversing last year's loss of $3.79 million, or -1 penny per share. - Revenue rose 1.8% from last year to $1.57 billion. - Analysts expected much lower earnings of just 11 cents per share, on matching revenue. Latest Dividend Reiterated; Yield Surpasses Peers In its earnings release, Cablevision announced it would continue its dividend payout of 15 cents per share. The latest dividend will be paid on Dec. 13 with an ex-dividend date of Nov. 20. The company has not raised its dividend payout since May of 2011. Despite the lack of dividend raise, CVC's dividend yield of 3.84% compares favorably with other stocks in its industry. Time Warner Cable (TWC) offers a yield of 2.2%, while Comcast Corporation (CMCSA) yields just 1.65%. The average dividend yield for S&P 500 companies is around 2.5%, so Cablevision's yield is well above both its industry average as well as the wider market average. Still, its lofty yield has come more as a result of poor price performance, rather than dividend increases. Shares Rise, but Still Tail Indexes Cablevision shares rose more than 2% in early trading on Friday, but the company's stock performance has lagged the wider markets for quite some time. Year-to-date, CVC has gained about 6%, compared with a 24% gain in the benchmark S&P 500 index. The stock was trading around the $38 level as recently as early 2011, so its dividend yield has risen significantly as its stock price plunged to around $16.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Cablevision currently offer a 3.82% yield, based on the stock's Thursday closing price of $15.63 and the company's annualized payout of 60 cents per share. Dividend investors enticed by the company's better-than-average yield should take heed to the fact that CVC's share price performance has been poor over the past several years. Cablevision Systems Corporation (CVC) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.

  • Nomura Securities Downgrades Cablevision to "Neutral," But Raises Price Target (CVC)

    Early on Monday, Cablevision Systems Corporation (CVC) was downgraded by analysts at Nomura Securities, as they expect the stock to be expensive due to diminished free cash flow and disappointing subscriber trends. The analysts downgraded CVC from "Buy" to "Neutral," but raised the price target from $19 to $20. This new price target suggests an 8.5% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $18.43. Furthermore, the analysts boosted the stock's fiscal 2013 EPS estimates from 16 cents to 19 cents. However, for fiscal 2014, EPS estimates were cut from 64 cents to 58 cents. Nomura analyst Adam Ilkowitz commented, "Financial results in 2Q13 were strong for Cablevision, achieving 26% sequential AOCF growth and returning to positive fully taxed free cash flow. Revenue was a bit lower than expected, but Cable AOCF margin of 32.1% was better than our 31.5% forecast due to better control of non-programming costs. While revenue and AOCF met or beat expectations, subscriber trends disappointed for the second consecutive quarter. With Net Debt / EBITDA reaching 4.8x, including the Bresnan proceeds, we believe that Cablevision is near the level where it can resume share repurchases. We expect an improvement in AOCF and declining capital spending in the coming years but do not think free cash flow will exceed $500mn for some time, making Cablevision expensive on FCF yield despite the improvement in shareholder returns." Cablevision shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 23.36% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Cablevision Systems Corp (CVC) offer a dividend yield of 3.26% based on Friday's closing price of $18.43 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 60 cents per share. Cablevision Systems Corporation (CVC) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
