Google announces Pixel smartphone

Google (GOOG) announced Pixel, a high-end smartphone designed by Google itself. The device is the first phone with Google Assistant built in, and features improved Google Cloud storage functionality. Pixel also sports an industry-leading camera -- which Google said has been rated above that of the Apple (AAPL) iPhone 7 -- and is "made for mobile virtual reality," the company noted.

Alphabet downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Wedbush

Mizuho cuts Twitter to Underperform with $15 price target
Mizuho analyst Neil Doshi downgraded Twitter to Underperform from Neutral based on valuation. The shares are up 45% since the company reported Q2 results, primarily driven by potential buyout comments in media reports, Doshi tells investors in a research note. The stock at current levels is overvalued as Twitter's business fundamentals "have deteriorated significantly" over the past 12 months, the analyst contends. Doshi believes many of the M&A scenarios are unlikely to play out. He puts potential acquirers Salesforce (CRM) and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) in the "maybe" camp, but he still has some reservations about these deals happening. The analyst believes investors of both companies would view a buyout of Twitter as negative. Doshi keeps a $15 price target for Twitter shares. The stock closed yesterday up 35c to $23.72. Loop Capital this morning also downgraded Twitter to Sell.

Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Mizuho and to Sell from Hold at Loop Capital. 5.

Street underestimating Google growth outlook, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney expects Google to end 2016 with "up to 20% growth," versus the Street's outlook of mid teen percentage level growth. Mahaney says that Google's growth should be boosted by "ongoing Search innovations, rising Mobile CPCs, and the growing impact of YouTube, Play & Cloud." He thinks that YouTube's revenue is growing at a 30%-40% clip. Mahaney raised his price target on the stock to $1,025 from $1,000 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Barclays removes Apple as Top Pick after trimming global smartphone forecast
Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz removed the firm's Top Pick designation on Apple (AAPL) shares after the firm trimmed its 2016 smartphone revenue and unit growth estimates, saying that the firm's research is not pointing to any major improvement in smartphone units beyond initial channel fill for the new iPhones and Samsung (SSNLF) Galaxy products. The firm now estimates a decline of 2.9% in smartphone revenue and growth of 2.6% in smartphone units, versus its prior forecast for a revenue decline of 0.7% and unit growth of 3.7% in 2016. Moskowitz, who thinks Apple shares may see near-term choppiness after their recent run-up, keeps an Overweight rating on the stock but lowered his price target to $114 from $115.

Western Digital is a new Top Pick in IT Hardware at Barclays
Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz recommends investors build positions in Western Digital (WDC) and named it his new Top Pick in IT Hardware, removing Apple (AAPL). Western Digital issued a positive September quarter financial update citing a favorable mix in both HDD and SSD, and particularly good pricing conditions in NAND flash, the analyst wrote. Moskowitz believes the company's commentary is positive for investor sentiment and added it to the top spot given improving end markets, reduced industry manufacturing capacity, and potential for further operational synergies. He recommends investors build or add positions in Western Digital as gross margins should trend upward in the near- to mid-term. Moskowitz rates Western Digital an Overweight with a $61 price target on shares.

Apple price target raised to $130 from $120 at Citi
Citi analyst Jim Suva raised his price target for Apple shares to $130 from $120 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. The stock closed yesterday down $1.77 to $112.18. U.S., Canada, European and Asian store checks indicate iPhone 7 demand at launch appears strong, Suva tells investors in a research note. Supply remains a limiting factor with many stores having received very limited supply of the iPhone 7 and in some cases only to suffice demand from preorders, the analyst adds. Suva raised his iPhone estimate for the December quarter to 79.4M units, above the consensus of 75M units.

Apple checks show iPhone 7 inventory still constrained, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said his checks of 134 Apple Stores in the U.S. showed that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus inventory levels are improved, but still constrained, and that supply appears even tighter in China. The limited supply of the iPhone 7 Plus should bode well for the December quarter outlook, adds Munster, who keeps an Overweight rating and $151 price target on Apple shares.
