Comcast Corp. "possesses a notable COVID-recovery component with its stores, parks, and theatrical business," which could help its stock even as defensive cable names have lagged recently, according to Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan IV. He upgraded shares of Comcast to outperform from market perform Friday while setting a $61 price target. Louthan sees room for upside from the NBCUniversal business, noting that Universal Studios Hollywood is reopening this week at limited capacity and with some restrictions. NBC has other open theme parks that were running at about 35% capacity late last year, with room to head higher. "We believe the uncertain timing of Universal Studios Hollywood reopening had been an overhang on the business," Louthan wrote in a note to clients. Louthan also sees potential in the company's Peacock streaming business and its mobility business. Peacock could start showing benefits from its exclusive streaming deal for "The Office" and could eventually come to reap rewards from the postponed Olympics, due to take place this summer, he argued. The mobility side of the business could show some improvements from the reopening of Xfinity stores, he continued. "Comcast appears to be giving up some gains from the renegotiation with Verizon this week, cutting prices by up to $15/month per line, implying aggressive promotions," Louthan wrote. "That said, we believe subscriber gains drive investor interest and significantly reduce churn." Shares of Comcast are up 1.3% in premarket trading Friday. They've gained 9.2% over the past three months as the S&P 500 has risen 10.7%.

The Africa data center market by investment is expected to grow at a CAGR of approx.New York, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Data Center Market in Africa - Industry Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05822887/?utm_source=GNW 15% during the period 2020–2026. The Africa data center market size by investment was valued at USD 2 billion in 2020 and is expected to USD 5 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 15% during 2021-2026. The data center market expects to observe growth because of the flurry of factors – renewable power availability, smart city initiatives, and increased support for the digital economy. Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Morocco, and Ethiopia are actively working toward improving the share of renewable energy in the region’s electricity generation. Africa is an emerging leader in microgrid capacity. Grid-connected, on-site energy generation or storage plants help data centers control power costs more efficiently by saving on peak demand costs charged by traditional grid facilities. Both colocation and enterprise operators invest heavily in adopting renewable energy sources to power data centers. The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the Africa data center market during the forecast period: • Availability of Renewable Energy • Government Support boosting Digital Economy • Increase in Adoption of All-Flash Storage Solutions • Increased Investment in Fiber Connectivity The study considers the present scenario of the Africa data center market and its market dynamics for 2020?2026. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The report offers both the demand and supply aspects of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent ones operating in the market. AFRICA DATA CENTER MARKET SEGMENTATION The Africa IT infrastructure market expects to reach approx. USD 4 billion by 2026. The growth in data generation in Africa is fueling the demand for fast-processing efficient servers. The demand for build-to-suit infrastructure is growing to support specific applications. Several segments such as BFSI, healthcare, transportation and logistics, education, and heavy industries adopt advanced server systems for efficient services. The unreliable power grid connectivity increases the demand for power backup sources. UPS and generator systems are expected to grow due to the increased construction of large and mega data center facilities. The Kenya data center market has witnessed the installation of energy-efficient power infrastructure. Most facilities are of Tier III standards and are adopting power redundancy of N+1 or 2N to manage power grid instability. Colocation service providers are likely to emerge as contributors to the lithium-ion UPS solutions market. Vendors are continuously offering innovative UPS solutions to boost efficiency and reduce cost. The construction of extensive facilities across Africa is likely to boost the generators market. The growing complexity of data center infrastructure is driving the demand for automated switchgear technology. Medium- and high-voltage switchgear are more likely to be adopted than low-voltage switchgear. The demand for intelligent PDUs among colocation end-users is growing as there is an increasing need to meter and monitor rack power consumption. Data center facilities operating in the African region mainly adopt chillers and precision air cooling. The adoption of air-based cooling (free cooling chillers) is likely to gain traction as certain African countries experience cold winter seasons. South Africa is likely to adopt free cooling chillers or evaporative coolers. The cooling systems market depends on the construction of mega and hyperscale facilities, primarily of 10 MW capacity. While several smaller facilities in Africa use DX-based CRAC units, medium and large data centers are installing CRAH units. Also, the implementation of air-cooled CRAC systems with cooling units that use refrigerants or glycol-based cooling is expected to grow during the forecast period. Data centers in Morocco have witnessed the adoption of precision cooling systems, chilled water-cooling systems, and free air-cooling systems. Most colocation facilities are funded by enterprise and government agencies; however, the actual investment in greenfield projects is low. Government initiatives to offer tax incentives expect to fuel general construction services during the forecast period. However, the shortage of skilled workforce construction and operational benefits is the major reason organizations select modular providers to perform installation and operation services. The increasing OPEX is likely to boost the implementation of DCIM solutions. The rapid growth in colocation data centers will drive investments in physical security systems in the African market. In South Africa, most colocation facilities have installed physical security solutions, ranging from perimeters to racks guarded via CCTV cameras and biometric systems. Companies have also adopted DCIM solutions that enable remote monitoring of data center operations. Data center operators in Kenya use several security systems such as biometric access systems, perimeter fencing, and CCTV surveillance solutions. In 2020, the Africa data center market witnessed Tier III facilities’ dominance, especially for colocation services. 10 out of the 11 tier III facilities developed were colocation data centers in 2020. The trend expects to continue during the forecast period, with several operators expecting to shift to Tier IV facilities due to the growth in rack power densities and increase in critical data center applications during the forecast period. Most new facilities are designed to be of Tier III standards with a minimum of N+1 redundancy. They can be reconfigured with up to 2N+2 redundancy with the incorporation of flexible data center designs. Most facilities in Kenya are built according to Tier III standards with standard redundancy of N+1 or N+N for support infrastructure, including cooling systems. Similarly, facilities in South Africa are designed to be tier III standards, which are flexible to be converted into Tier IV facilities.
