Time Warner Cable Still a “Buy” at Canaccord Genuity (TWC)

Cable TV and Internet provider Time Warner Cable Inc (TWC) on Monday saw its “Buy” rating reiterated by analysts at Canaccord Genuity.

The firm also backed its $96 price target, which suggests a 19% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $80.38.

A Canaccord Genuity analyst commented, “TWC with Insight: Adjusted OIBDA expectations. We expect TWC to report pro forma Adj OIBDA of $1.89B, 4.3% above the combined results last year. While this is slightly below the 4.5% growth we’re expecting for TWC classic (excluding Insight), we anticipate cost savings to kick-in in H2/12. For 2012, we expect ADJ OIBDA to grow 4.1% on a pro forma basis, above the 3.5% for TWC excluding Insight, due to $50M in programming and other cost savings.”

Time Warner Cable shares were mostly flat in early trading Monday.
