Why the Paramount Global Weekly Options Trade was Originally Executed!

Paramount Global (NASDAQ: PARA) fell Monday after a BofA Securities analyst downgraded the stock because the entertainment company wasn’t preparing to sell some of its assets. This sell-off is likely to continue.

BofA Securities analyst Jessica Reif Ehrlich double-downgraded shares of Paramount to Underperform from Buy and slashed her price target to $9 from $32.

Reif Ehrlich wrote in a research note Monday that her previous bullish view on the stock came with the assumption that Paramount would sell some of its assets. However, despite receiving bids for assets like Showtime and BET Media Group, it doesn’t look like sales are coming anytime soon.

“Our concern is the longer it takes to execute potential asset sales, the less value they could ultimately garner,” the analyst said. She added that this, coupled with the challenging macro backdrop, creates an unfavorable medium-term outlook for the stock.

Additionally, BofA sees a challenging macro environment and secular headwinds weighing on the business into 2024.

About Paramount Global.....

Paramount Global operates as a media and entertainment company worldwide. The company operates through TV Media, Direct-to-Consumer, and Filmed Entertainment segments.

The TV Media segment operates domestic and international broadcast networks, including CBS Television Network, Network 10, Channel 5, Telefe, and Chilevisión; and cable networks comprising Showtime, BET, Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, Paramount Network, Smithsonian Channel, and CBS Sports Network.

It is also involved in the television production operations; and ownership of broadcast television stations.

The Direct-to-Consumer segment provides a portfolio of direct-to-consumer streaming services, including Paramount+, Pluto TV, Showtime Networks' premium subscription streaming service, BET+, and Noggin.

The Filmed Entertainment segment operates produces franchise live-action and animated films, and genre films for audiences. It operates under the Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players, Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon Studio, and Miramax names.

The company was formerly known as ViacomCBS Inc. and changed its name to Paramount Global in February 2022. Paramount Global was incorporated in 1986 and is headquartered in New York, New York. Paramount Global operates as a subsidiary of National Amusements, Inc.

Further Catalysts for the PARA Weekly Options Trade…..

Last week, the company reported third-quarter earnings that gave a mixed picture of the business. Overall revenue was up 3% to $7.13 billion, which was slightly below estimates. Growth in its direct-to-consumer streaming segment was strong with revenue up 38% to $1.67 billion, but its linear TV division continues to experience declines.

On the bottom line, adjusted earnings per share fell 23% to $0.30, but that was better than the consensus of $0.09. Its base of Paramount+ subscribers continued to grow, with 2.7 million additions in the quarter to reach 63 million.

Ehrlich isn't alone in her assessment that Paramount's value lies in its assets, as some have speculated that Berkshire Hathaway owns the stock as an asset play as well.

The positive reaction from the market to Paramount's earnings last week could indicate that investors are sensing that the worst has passed, but an asset sale would also likely boost the stock and give the company money to pay down debt and invest in growth areas of the business.
