On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst James Dix citing concerns that the "Four Horsemen of the Search Apocalypse" -- self-identified consumers, consumer control of IP-delivered ads, payments innovation, and attention markets -- might arrive. 2. AT&T (T) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst John Hodulik citing expectations for lower earnings growth. 3. Macy's (M) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Exstein saying the retailer, after outlining in August its operations and merchandising strategies, is now in an execution phase. 4. Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Mizuho and to Sell from Hold at Loop Capital. 5. Galectin Therapeutics (GALT) downgraded to Sell from Buy at Roth Capital with analyst Sa'ar Yaniv citing the company's announcement that NASH-FX, GR-MD-02's Phase 2a study in NASH fibrosis, failed both primary and secondary endpoints.

Citi says Salesforce buying Twitter 'nearly impossible' above $28/share
Citi analyst Walter Pritchard believes a Salesforce (CRM) acquisition of Twitter (TWTR) is possible financially but that such a deal would put "significant constraints" on the company for the next three-plus years. The analyst sees "very little reason" for Salesforce to own Twitter and feels the acquisition "would pose a difficult decision" for CEO Marc Benioff and the board. Salesforce closed yesterday down 6%, or $4.21, to $68.42. Recode reported last night that the company is likely the only bidder left for Twitter after Disney (DIS) and Alphabet (GOOG) opted not to pursue a deal while Apple (AAPL) is unlikely. Twitter in pre-market trading is down 14% to $21.50. In order for Salesforce to avoid a shareholder vote, it would have to borrow $7.5B to fund the transaction if Twitter were valued at $20B, or $27.50-$28 per share, Pritchard tells investors in a research note. This is a level that likely constrains the company with little additional borrowing capacity for other deals, the analyst contends. He thinks the deal is "nearly impossible to do" for Salesforce should the bidding for Twitter go above $20B or $28 per share. Pritchard has a Buy rating on Salesforce with an $89 price target.

Alphabet, Facebook can meet Street estimates, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that investors are concerned about the ability of Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG,GOOGL) to meet Street estimates because forecasts continue to indicate that TV's ad share will be relatively stable over the next two years. But Wells says that Facebook and Google will continue to gain share from "non-TV media" and could see increased revenue from "non-advertising marketing services" such as sponsorships and public relations. Wells keeps Outperform ratings on both stocks.

Wells doesn't see Apple as biggest beneficiary from Samsung issues
Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um attributes the recent rally in shares of Apple (AAPL), at least in part, to Samsung's (SSNLF) issues with its Note 7 phones. Apple gained an incremental $14B in market capitalization at its intraday peak, which the analyst believes embeds more than 3M of incremental iPhone 7 Plus units. Samsung's production halt will help Apple, but other Android vendors with 5.7 inch phones could see a bigger benefit if Android users prefer to stick with Android, Um tells investors in a research note. He points out that LG, Kyocera, and Microsoft (MFST) have 5.7 inch Android phones at U.S. carriers. Um thinks expectations for Apple into earnings "have risen materially." He keeps a Market Perform rating on the iPhone maker. Apple closed yesterday up 25c to $116.30.

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.
