  • CenturyLink Upgraded at Normura Securities to "Neutral" (CTL)

    Nomura Securities announced on Friday that it has raised its rating on communications company CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) . The firm has upgraded CTL from "Reduce" to "Neutral," and has increased the company's price target from $30 to $33. This price target suggests a 2% increase from the stock's current price of $32.58. Analyst Adam Ilkowitz noted, "we think CenturyLink shares are appropriately discounting the previously revised dividend rate and the potential for revenue and Adj. EBITDA growth. We forecast $2.5bn in annual free cash flow, which supports the $1.3bn dividend while leaving $1bn for debt reduction. CenturyLink’s 2Q13 results largely met our and consensus financial expectations, with a modest EPS beat, but reduced revenue and Adj. EBITDA guidance drove shares lower. We believe that the limited Prism TV rollout and slower DSL speeds versus Cable are taking a toll on the Consumer business. Removing the CIBER acquisition, Data Hosting revenue growth was 3% in 1H13, well below that of peers in the colocation and cloud hosting business. Our updated $33 target price is based on our DCF analysis and implies a 6.5% dividend yield, a discount to Verizon and AT&T and a premium to Frontier and Windstream." Looking ahead, the firm has raised its FY2013 estimates from $2.71 to $2.72 per share. FY2014 estimates have been lowered from $2.70 to $2.65 per share. CenturyLink shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Friday. The stock is down 17% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) have a 6.63% yield based on Thursday's closing price of $32.58. CenturyLink, Inc. (CTL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
