Recent News & Updates
Plugging Into The Altice Bull Case
Altice has massively trailed peers so far this year. Management has not done themselves any favors. From a quixotic quest to buy Atlantic Broadband to forecasts that showed no handle on the business. Still, the company is much cheaper than peers, gushing cash flow, and buying back shares hand over fist.
Altice USA: 16% Correction Was Overreaction To Q2 Broadband Stability
ATUS stock has fallen 15.5% since Q2 results on July 28, which we believe to be an over-reaction and represents an opportunity. Zero organic Broadband net add in Q2 was due to COVID-related move churn and the end of mandated payment extensions. Competition has remained manageable, ATUS is confident about H2, and "edge out" and fiber upgrade will help future years. Free Cash Flow Yield is nearly 10%, and Free Cash Flow/Share will grow at double digits even with conservative assumptions. With shares at $28.81, we expect an exit price of $58 and a total return of 101% (22.8% annualized) by 2024 year-end. Buy.
