Political revenues recorded an all-time high, including presidential election years and came well above the previous mid-term election in 2014. Additionally, TEGNA’s agreement to acquire two leading stations, WTOL and KWES, in Ohio and Texas is expected to boost its market share post acquisition, which is a positive. Moreover, Premion, which is helping the company reach customers beyond its traditional business, has expanded its reach to 200 markets from the earlier 39 markets. However, the company operates in a competitive broadcast TV industry, which has long been grappling with declining advertising revenues. Moreover, shares have also underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis.”

The company saw strength in all end markets categorized by customer type or geography in the last reported quarter. It particularly registered solid international performance with strong growth in Asia-Pacific including China. Also, a series of product launches with progress in precision medicine initiatives aided its performance. The company’s recently-closed acquisition of Advanced Bioprocessing business from BD should add complementary cell culture products to Thermo Fisher’s bioproduction offerings. Also, the company’s initiative to buy Gatan to boost electron microscopy suite buoys optimism. On the flip side, Thermo Fisher’s business segments are getting impacted by unfavorable business mix. Also, competitive headwinds and escalating costs pose a threat.”
