The analysts wrote, “We note that these comments were generally consistent with observations we have found recently, which indicates that marketers are unlikely to cut their spending because of concerns about the social ills of social media. However, spending will change if consumer behaviors on those media change, and spending will further be impacted by practical limits to growth in budgets for advertising, which for us remains as a key concern on the growth potential for digital media companies we cover.””

The analysts wrote, “NAT reported 4Q17 results which were ahead of our estimates, but below the consensus forecasts, and remained depressed. The beat was mainly attributable to a higher TCE rate of $13,800 per vessel/day versus our estimate of $10,500 per vessel/day.””

Key Points: FFO In-Line: TCO reported fourth quarter NAREIT FFO of $1.02 per share and core FFO of $1.03 per share. Core FFO of $3.70 per share showed 3.4% annual growth while NAREIT FFO of $3.50 per share showed a 10.2% decline, primarily due to charges associated with shareholder activism and corporate restructuring charges.””

Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ:WLTW) was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a strong sell rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Willis Towers’ fourth-quarter bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate on a solid segmental performance. The company is set to deliver value via incremental revenue growth, cost synergies and tax efficiencies besides unlocking the balance sheet capacity. Focus on realizing operational efficiencies, investing in new growth avenues and strengthening its client services bode well. Its inorganic story remains impressive and helps leverage strengths to penetrate deeper into the markets and expand international presence. The momentum in exchange business remains strong. Shares of Willis Towers have outperformed the industry in a year. Notably, Willis Towers expects adjusted earnings per share between $9.88 and $10.12, revenue growth of about 3% and EBITDA margin expansion of 25% in 2018.

Its technology continues to evolve and make progress. Currently e-commerce sales generate 25% of its revenues. Further, its focus on strategic acquisitions, cost-cutting initiatives and growth potential in the replacement market are likely to drive growth. The company’s sound balance sheet positions it well to invest and capitalize on long-term growth opportunities.”
