ViacomCBS is ready for a bounce back after the stock lost more than half its value during the downfall of a highly levered investment fund, according to Citi.

Citi analyst Jason Bazinet on Tuesday upgraded the stock to buy from neutral, saying the company was being too cautious with its projections for its streaming video business and that its shares looked relatively cheap.
