Cable and satellite providers blamed the economy and increased competition for the batya.levi@ubs.comweaker than expected results. Telcos continued to improve penetration of homes passed (VZ at30%, AT&T at 16%), capturing a total of 7.3% market share vs. 5.6% a year ago. Satellite. Lisa L.

While cord-cutting is likely impacting results at the margin, we believe the impact ofover-the-top is more prevalent in ARPU trends. Cable MSOs’ video ARPU growth deceleratedto 3.9% from 4.6% in 1Q, resulting in just 0.7% video revenue growth, half of the 1Q rate. We.estimate total industry video revenues grew 5.2% yoy, down from 5.7% in 1Q and 6.5% a yearago. Cable leads in broadband; Data ARPU growth acceleratesBroadband subs grew 6.3% yoy in 2Q, in-line with the last four quarters. Cable continued totake a majority of the flow share, capturing 84% in 2Q vs. 66% in 1Q and over 100% a year ago.We expect this trend to continue with cable garnering 75% of flow share in 2012. Cable is alsobenefiting from the improved mix of higher-speed subs, boosting ARPU growth to 2.5% from1.9% in 1Q. Cable VoIP adds slowed to 307K from 407K a year ago. This helped improve theannual declines in telco voice lines to 9.1% in 2Q from 9.4% in 1Q and 9.8% a year ago.- Michael Lasser................ +1-212-713 2440Lowes (LOW.N).

US$1.62 => US$1.60ascribing a high probability of success based on the discounted valuation vs. HD. 2013E......................... US$1.84 => US$1.76 Several near-term factors should support the stockWe think there are several appealing factors for LOW’s near-term investment case: Thecompany has set a lower bar for 2H’11 by guiding to flat comps (note that comps are runningpositive QTD). Also, we expect LOW should see less of a drag from soft appliance trends. This.caused a ~50 bps comp drag in 2Q’11. Lastly, we believe Lowe’s should continue to generatestrong expense leverage (2Q’11 op margin expanded 34 bps). Valuation: LOW trading at a 9% FCF yield & less than 6x ‘11E EBITDAIn our view, LOW’s attractive valuation should provide some potential downside support even asits gross margin outlook is more uncertain. Our $25 target is based on a blend of a DCF andmultiple analysis (equates to 14x our CY’12 EPS est of $1.76).- UBS 3

What is Long Term EPS Power at Estee Lauder?Driven by accelerated category growth, share gains, white space expansion, positive price/mix,operating leverage and incremental cost savings, we estimate 13-14% EPS growth through.2015. We expect the company to be the next “10 in 10” story. That is, the company would beable to deliver high quality 10% EPS growth every year for the next 10 years.

Thus, Matthew Harrison.............. +1-212-713 2429the patent is valid and enforceable until October 2019 (excluding pediatric exclusivity). Associate Analyst Our takeaway: Upside to Pfizer, we had been expecting generics matthew.harrison@ubs.comThe fact that Pfizer will retain Viagra until 2019 is a substantial positive and counter to ourexpectations that Teva would enter sooner.

Tricorfranchise: TRx volumes remain weak at -15% (12-wk moving average: -15%). That said, ABThas managed revs effectively w/ sales +1% in 2Q11 despite -14% in TRx, which we attribute topricing (+14% cumulatively) and lower performance rebates.

While LCAPP #2 would supplement the original procurement, we believe thewinning bids under the original LCAPP SOCA agreements would never be developed, allowingfor these assets to be re-procured under the latest solicitation.

Also slightlysoft—demand by small businesses was fairly restrained. Broader easing is more supportive of Q3 growth and hiringThe net easing in lending standards and strengthening in loan demand suggests support forspending at the start of Q3. The survey ran from July 12 to 26—fairly recent although it missedthe grand finale of the Federal debt negotiations.We focus on the Senior Loan Officer Survey because lending standards tend to lead growthbroadly and hiring in particular. Also, the small business sector, key to hiring activity, dependsdisproportionately on banks for credit.The leading relationship with growth and hiring is probably partly causal (easier credit makes foreasier investment spending) and partly a function of an economic/business outlook shared bybanks and businesses. But the net of this report is that bank credit was boosting overall activitymore at the start of Q3 than it had been at the start of Q2. The pattern of recent easing appearshistorically consistent with private-sector job growth of about 200k per month—versus a 164kper month average year to date.- UBS 13
