After years of defending cable’s near monopoly to hang on to subscribers, MoffettNathanson Research’s Craig Moffett said in a report that the market is now “arguably too complacent about cord cutting. He added that the 2.5% drop in video subscriptions in Q1 is “likely to get worse before it gets better,” noting that operators face heavy competition from live streaming services like YouTubeTV and Hulu, that offer fewer channels for lower prices. The shift from one of the most respected cable industry analysts contributed to a drop in cable stocks, with Comcast down 3.4%, Charter down 2.2% and Centurylink down 2.6% in Tuesday afternoon trading.
