eBay sale of MercadoLibre stake adds financial flexibility, says Baird

Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said eBay's (EBAY) sale of a majority of its investment stake in MercadoLibre (MELI) will provide eBay with both financial and strategic flexibility. The analyst believes the capital will allow eBay to increase share buybacks, make strategic acquisitions, or expand more aggressively in Latin America under a new strategic agreement with MercadoLibre. Sebastian maintained his Outperform rating and $35 price target on eBay shares.

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. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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.

eBay outlook has improved, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Robert Peck says he's more confident about eBay's turnaround following its beat and raise results. However, the analyst warns that the company's turnaround still has a long way to go, while its competition is increasing. Peck thinks that the stock could "re-rate" as the company's outlook becomes more certain, but he keeps a Hold rating on the shares.

eBay coverage assumed with a Neutral at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Aaron Turner says that eBay's e-commerce initiatives should help slow its market share erosion. However, the analyst prefers to keep a Neutral rating on the shares until the company shows that its "recent growth is sustainable and/or accelerating." Target to $34 from $29.

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.

JPMorgan analyst Andre Baggio upgraded MercadoLibre to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $200 from $133. The Latin America online commerce platform closed yesterday up $1.68 to $173.68. The Brazilian marketplace is thriving, and MercadoLibre is gaining market share, Baggio tells investors in a research note. He expects the share price to be driven by earnings growth, despite the "rich valuation."

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. 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.
