We assume the accelerated buybacks will take place in 3Q14 and the remaining $250m will be done evenly over the next four quarters (beginning 4Q14). Under these assumptions, we believe the higher-than-forecast buybacks are accretable to our TBV estimate. We expect the stock will begin to re-rate up with clarity on excess cash usage.”

This was partially offset by solid results in Cable, where margins expanded 160bps q/q and revenue remained healthy at +15%, down only slightly from +16% in 1Q despite a more difficult comparison. The better-than-expected margins in Cable (and also at Sky) come despite better subscriber net adds. Higher corporate expenses reflect, in part, the impact of the higher stock price.”
