Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) early Monday is expected to post Q1 earnings up 4% on flat revenue, as analysts await conference call commentary on where the nation's No. 1 cable TV firm is headed after regulators thwarted its proposed acquisition of No. 2 cable firm Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC).
Some analysts expect Comcast to update its stock buyback plans in the wake of the TWC deal's demise. Comcast pulled the plug on the merger on April 24, and its stock is roughly flat since then.
