On Monday, Charter Communications stock (NASDAQ:CHTR) received an upgrade from Bernstein, shifting from a 'Market Perform' to an 'Outperform' rating. The firm also set a new price target of $370.00 for the company's shares, indicating a 25% potential upside from the current levels.

The upgrade comes amidst Bernstein's analysis that, despite near-term challenges, the risks have been more than factored into Charter's current valuation. The company's shares are trading at five-year low multiples, and Bernstein anticipates a significant recovery as the identified risks are expected to evolve throughout 2024 and into 2025.

Bernstein's revised outlook for Charter Communications includes a cautious yet optimistic stance. The firm has taken a conservative approach to three key issues affecting the company: the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), fixed wireless access (FWA), and capital expenditures (Capex). Despite adopting a more bearish view on these fronts due to the prevailing negative sentiment, Bernstein asserts that the stock holds a considerable upside from its price today.

Charter Communications, which has been navigating a challenging market environment, is now seen by Bernstein to have a promising investment potential.
