Cox Communications is increasingly looking like a strategic target of Charter (CHTR +2.1%), according to media analysts.

Not only is Cox the next biggest option in the cable sector for Charter, it also makes a more strategic fit for the company than Cablevision or a string of smaller deals.

Execs with Cox are playing coy on the potential for a sale.
