On Wednesday, Roth/MKM adjusted its outlook on fuboTV (NYSE:FUBO), reducing the stock's price target to $2.00 from the previous figure of $3.25. The firm has decided to maintain a Neutral rating on the shares of the sports-focused streaming service.

The revision comes as major sports broadcasters Warner Bros./Discovery, ESPN/Disney, and Fox Sports are said to be in the process of creating a joint sports streaming application. This move is expected to intensify the competitive landscape for fuboTV, as the proposed platform could present a more extensive selection of channels, some of which fuboTV does not currently offer.

The analyst from Roth/MKM cited the collaborative effort of these broadcasting giants as an indicator of the increasing competitive pressure within the industry. Concerns have been raised that this development could potentially impact fuboTV's growth trajectory, customer retention, path to profitability, and the ability to set prices, particularly given fuboTV’s variable cost structure.

The decision to lower the price target to $2.00 is a reflection of these potential challenges. It underlines the heightened competitive environment that fuboTV is facing, which could affect its market position and financial performance moving forward.

As the streaming market continues to evolve, fuboTV's position as a sports-centric platform will be tested by the entry of new, potentially more comprehensive services. This adjustment in the price target by Roth/MKM signals the need for fuboTV to navigate a rapidly shifting industry landscape.
