Liberty Broadband (NASDAQ:LBRDA)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reiterated by Pivotal Research in a research note issued on Monday, March 12th. They currently have a $134.00 price target on the stock. Pivotal Research’s price objective would suggest a potential upside of 55.38% from the company’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “We modified our sum-of the-parts valuation methodology post the LBRDK 10-K filing and most importantly for our February CHTR (BUY) YE’18 target price increase to $500, which led to $21 change in our YE’18 LBRDK target price to $134. Recall Liberty Broadband’s sole effective asset is a ~17% economic stake (25% voting) in BUY rated CHTR. We point investors to our most recent CHTR note for a detailed discussion of the underpinnings of this target price + risks. Recall we utilize an 8% discount to NAV in our LBRDK target price. We continue to have a favorable outlook for CHTR shares as we expect improving results and massive share repurchase activity to act as an attractive tailwind for the shares. On our updated estimates, Liberty Broadband continues to trade at an 11% discount to NAV, which we view as attractive.””
