CBS Dismisses Merger Talks

Les Moonves, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director of CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) said on CNBC in February 2015 that CBS was "very happy being alone," and the Chief Executive Officer doubled down on that talk at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference. Moonves says his Chief Operating Officer tells him that CBS will be a $100 stock in four years, so buyers or merger partners like Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) or Viacom, Inc. (NasdaqGS:VIAB) would have to pay "a very high price." CBS faces new negotiations with DIRECTV (NasdaqGS:DTV) and Cablevision Systems Corporation (NYSE:CVC) at the end of 2015.
