Pali said that despite the MSO’s slower growth prospects and weaker clustering relative to its peers, "we are increasingly hard pressed to find a major catalyst that will drive down MCCC shares." — Pali Research raised its ’08 estimates for Discovery Holdings and increased its price target on Discovery shares to $28.50 from $25.50.

"Discovery is one of the few cable network companies that can truly exploit their content globally without having to create significant amounts of local programming," said Pali in a research note.
