Liberty Broadband (LBRDA) Rating Reiterated by Pivotal Research

Pivotal Research restated their buy rating on shares of Liberty Broadband (NASDAQ:LBRDA) in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday morning, Marketbeat reports. They currently have a $100.00 price objective on the stock, down from their previous price objective of $134.00.

“We modified our sum-of the-parts valuation methodology post the LBRDK 10-Q filing and most importantly for our 4/30 CHTR (BUY) YE’18 target price decrease to from $500 to $375, which led to $34 change in our YE’18 LBRDK target price to $100. Recall Liberty Broadband’s sole effective asset is a ~17% economic stake (25% voting) in BUY rated CHTR. Recall our CHTR target price reduction was a conservative move to attempt to reflect what we view as overdone investor concern regarding mainly heightened competition and changes to the broader low margin payTV subscriber outlook. We point investors to our most recent CHTR note for a detailed discussion of the underpinnings of this target price + risks. Recall we utilize an 8% discount to NAV in our LBRDK target price.”,” Pivotal Research’s analyst wrote.
