Next year may bring more media consolidation, and analysts have identified several media stocks as their top picks in the new year. They include CBS (CBS) , on which Stifel has a buy rating. While the company didn't do a deal with Viacom (VIAB) , Stifel says CBS could make a play for Sony's (SNE) Sony Pictures. AMC Entertainment (AMC) and Cinemark Holdings (CNK) are also top picks, with analysts expecting another record year at the box office. Analysts are also high on Netflix (NFLX) , saying its large lead and established brand are benefits as more consumers shift to Internet TV viewing.
