Apple could gain 8M iPhone units from Note 7 troubles, says Drexel Hamilton

Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White estimates Apple (AAPL) has an opportunity to pick up "at least" 8 million incremental iPhone units in calendar year 2016 due to the Galaxy Note 7 being scrapped, noting that original market expectations were for Samsung (SSNLF) to ship about 10M-14M Galaxy Note 7 units in the second half of this year. The "fiasco" could permanently damage Samsung's smartphone brand, resulting in Apple market share gains, White added. The analyst keeps a Buy rating and $185 price target on Apple shares.

Apple has positive read through from Dialog results, says RBC Capital
After Dialog issued a positive preannouncement due to higher than expected Mobile Services revenue, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani thinks that the Dialog results should comfort Apple investors heading into that company's September quarter results. The analyst notes that Apple accounts for 75%-80% of Dialog's revenue. He keeps a $125 price target and Outperform rating on Apple.

Apple average selling prices could beat expectations, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani says that his analysis indicates that the average selling prices of Apple's iPhone 7 could significantly exceed Street expectations. Stronger demand for the "plus" model versus the last two years, along with the fact that Apple is charging a $120 premium for the "plus" model versus a $100 premium historically, should boost average selling prices, the analyst stated. He thinks that Apple's September quarter revenue could beat expectations by a "modest" amount, while the company's December quarter guidance could be "materially ahead of Street expectations." He keeps a $125 price target and Outperform rating on the stock.

Deutsche sees Netflix takeover as unlikely, starts shares at Sell
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft initiated shares of Netflix (NFLX) with a Sell rating and $90 price target. The stock closed Friday down 25c to $104.82. The risk/reward is unattractive as consensus expectations reflect an "optimistic case," Kraft tells investors in a research note. Market expectations appear too high through 2020, the analyst contends. He also expresses skepticism that Netflix will be acquired. The business is "too fully formed" and valued to be acquired by Disney (DIS) and Apple (AAPL), Kraft writes. He also sees Amazon.com (AMZN) as a competitive risk to Netflix.

Digital Turbine estimates, price target reduced at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Brian Alger reduced his estimates for Digital Turbine (APPS) and lowered his price target on the shares to $2.60 from $3, after the company quantified the miss that it had previewed last month. The shortfall was attributed to the slashed digital ad budget of a large advertising customer, Verizon (VZ) choosing to reduce the number of slots per device for much of the March quarter, and to Verizon Samsung S7's (SSNLF) that have yet to have Ignite software included, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Alger reiterates a Buy rating on Digital Turbine's shares, considering the depressed current valuation.

Apple supply chain names to rebound, says Needham
Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill expects a rebound in the Apple (AAPL) supply chain names given its underperformance over the last 25 days and the relatively good quarterly results from Knowles (KN). Among the names, the analyst sees Cirrus Logic (CRUS) increasing its dollar content per unit about 40% for the iPhone 7 cycle, with possible upside of 80%-100% for the iPhone 7S in 2017 with the inclusion of adaptive noise cancellation. Knowles, which generated 25% of sales from Apple and less than 10% of sales from Samsung (SSNLF), posted better-than-expected results and guidance, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

Fitbit faces 'fight of its life,' GoPro Karma delay a problem, says BlueFin
In an update on the wearable space, BlueFin analysts John Donovan and Steve Mullane make the case that Fitbit (FIT) is "in for the fight of its life" given mounting competition that is coming from Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Garmin (GRMN) and Under Armour (UA), adding that the sizable inventory of Alta and Blaze devices that it must deplete in this competitive environment puts Fitbit is in a "precarious position." The analyst add that Apple's watchOS improvements "further paint Fitbit into a corner," but noted that market data suggests consumers are looking for wearables under $200, which is in the "sweet spot" of Fitbit's portfolio. Weighing in on GoPro (GPRO), the analysts wonder if the Hero5 will be compelling enough to make consumers buy another camera and note that its upcoming Karma drone is very late to market and "facing daunting odds."

Synaptics price target lowered to $65 from $88 at Needham
Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill lowered his price target for Synaptics (SYNA) to $65 from $88 on a lower earnings multiple as he remains uncertain on whether the company has secured the OLED DDIC for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 8 versus an internal Samsung (SSNLF) solution. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Synaptics' shares, saying the company will remain one of the leaders in the display markets.
