Analyst Views

In July, Time Warner's Time magazine eliminated some free online content, providing only summaries and shortened articles. In addition to striking a multi-year advertising pact worth up to $300M with Unilever (NYSE:UN)(NYSE:UL), Time Warner's Warner Bros. and its financing partner Legendary Pictures invested $160M in "Inception," an action thriller that's not a sequel, inspired by a toy or adapted from a comic book.

Credit Suisse recently added Time Warner to its U.S. Focus List based on valuation and strong strategic positioning and growth prospects.
