eBay could rise 25% in a year, Barron's says

Shares of eBay (EBAY) could rise 25% to $40 in a year, Barron's contends in a feature article. Investor expectations are low and the company is taking steps to overhaul its "clunky" site, the publication argues. Website revamps "can turn dot-com relics into comebacks," such as the 229% and 363% gains achieved by MercadoLibre (MELI) and Expedia (EXPE) following their respective overhauls, and eBay's new site should also help its search rankings, the publication argues.

Deutsche upgrades eBay to Buy with $40 price target
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler upgraded eBay to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $40 from $30. The stock closed yesterday down 9c to $31.85. eBay is likely to outperform Internet peers over the next two years now that its re-platforming is in the latter stages, Sandler tells investors in a research note. There are few "out-of-favor accelerating-growth stories with upside to estimates and a reasonably low valuation," the analyst contends. He believes eBay may be the best story in Internet heading into 2017.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. eBay (EBAY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Ross Sandler saying eBay is likely to outperform Internet peers over the next two years now that its re-platforming is in the latter stages. 2. BlackBerry (BBRY) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Macquarie with analyst Gus Papageorgiou saying he expects operations to stabilize and profitability to return next year. 3. Endo (ENDP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Northland. 4. Rex Energy (REXX) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel with analyst Michael Scialla saying the production cut may not actually occur, but he believes that other factors, along with positive commentary from OPEC, "appears to be building an oil price floor of $40." 5. Incyte (INCY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Reni Benjamin saying Epacadostat plus pembrolizumab, should ;the results be confirmed in the ongoing Phase III study, could effectively compete with ipilimumab and nivolumab.

Baird says impact on eBay from Facebook's Marketplace likely limited for now
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said Facebook's (FB) launch of its long-anticipated peer-to-peer commerce platform, "Marketplace," came "much later" than he anticipated, but he still thinks Facebook is well positioned to compete in consumer shopping. Facebook's latest e-commerce effort will create headlines around competitive pressure, but Sebastian thinks Amazon (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY) will be "minimally impacted" in the near term given their scale, brand awareness, and much more advanced e-commerce capabilities. eBay may be most exposed, but the analyst also notes that 80% of its listings are new products, which may have limited overlap with Facebook listings.

MercadoLibre listings growth continues, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says his firm's proprietary web analytics indicates MercadoLibre's listings growth continues at an "impressive rate." For July, the analyst thinks the company's unit growth was 85%. MercadoLibre's platform is "gaining steam with suppliers due to improvements in the site," Munster tells investors in a research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $185 price target.

The Latin America online commerce platform closed yesterday up $1.68 to $173.68.

MercadoLibre (MELI) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Andre Baggio, who said the Brazilian marketplace is thriving, and MercadoLibre is gaining market share. 2. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer by analyst Rohit Vanjani, who points out that the validity of Teva's Copaxone patents now lies with the District Court decision after the inter partes reviews by the USPTO. Vanjani believes the court ruling, which will likely come in early 2017, is the more important of the two, with a higher hurdle to invalidate the patents. 3. Pioneer Energy (PES) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies by analyst Brad Handler, who argues that the 24% pullback in shares since the early July peak provides an attractive valuation. The analyst believes Pioneer's covenant risk can be managed and raised his price target for the shares to $6 from $5. 4. Amec Foster Wheeler (AMFW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill. 5. Mitsubishi UFJ (MTU) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Daiwa. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Piper prefers Expedia over Priceline into Q2 results
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says he prefers Expedia (EXPE) over Priceline (PCLN) into the Q2 earnings reports given the latter company's tendency to provide overly conservative guidance in the face of headwinds, namely Brexit. Expedia has a "high degree of flexibility" to maintain its guidance for 35%-45% EBITDA growth in 2016, Olson tells investors in a research note. He reiterates Overweight ratings on Expedia, Priceline and TripAdvisor (TRIP).

trivago IPO to highlight value of core Expedia, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson believes the initial public offering of trivago will highlight the value of Expedia's core business. The planned IPO is a positive from a sum-of-the-parts perspective, but HomeAway's guest booking fee will drive the bulk of value creation and potential EBITDA upside, Olson tells investors in a research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on Expedia with a $147 price target.
