    Media Stocks: Debt, Deal Hopes, and Undead All Take a Toll

    Disney's (DIS) sweetened takeover bid  for 21st Century Fox (FOXA) has soured ratings agency Moody's Investor Service on the media giant's debt.  Moody's placed Disney on review for a downgrade late yesterday, citing the company's major debt load, should it be successful in buying Fox and European satellite TV provider Sky: Moody's pegs the company's debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ratio around four times if the deal closes, 3.5 times without Sky. Of course, that figure could go higher if  Comcast (CMCSA) ratchets up its own $65 billion offer for Fox and Disney decides to escalate again. Moody's expects that should a ratings downgrade occur, it will be limited to one notch." Needham's Laura Martin expects that Disney will win the day, given that Fox's controlling Murdoch family will vote its 17% economic interest for the deal, which means that only 40% of remaining shareholders need to agree, where as 60% of non-Murdoch shareholders have to vote for the Comcast deal.

    [$$] Disney brings a revolver* to its Fox hunt

    The bond market has its money on Disney winning a bidding war for 21st Century Fox.

    Is Fox Leaning towards Comcast’s Bid?

    According to Bloomberg, 21st Century Fox (FOXA) is planning to begin discussions regarding a deal with media giant Comcast (CMCSA) in regards to Fox assets, thus paving the way for a bidding war with rival Walt Disney (DIS).

"Given the strategic importance of the Fox assets, we expect Comcast will come back with a higher offer," he wrote. "Given timing and regulatory risk that could lengthen a path to close, we believe the next counter offer from Comcast will be in the low $40/sh.
