On The Fly: Stocks end week lower as big banks kick off earnings season

Stocks ended the week lower as investors assessed the minutes from the last Federal Reserve meeting and weighed comments from Fed Chair Janet Yellen, who said that it may be useful to consider the benefits of a "high-pressure economy." Additionally, three major U.S. banks reported better than expected quarterly results, but their reports came on the heels of several profit warnings issued in the days prior. Earnings season will accelerate next week, when the volume will pick up and several more banks, along with a number of the biggest names in tech, will be reporting. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., Initial jobless claims were unchanged at 246,000 for the week ended October 8. September import prices rose 0.1%, while export prices were up 0.3%. Retail sales rose 0.6% in September. If the autos and gas are removed, the core reading was up 0.3%. The Producer Prices Index for September rose 0.3%. When food and energy are removed, the core reading was up 0.2%. The preliminary University of Michigan consumer confidence reading for October came in at 87.9. Business inventories increased 0.2% in August. The Fed released the minutes from its September policy meeting, which showed that some members see a rationale to raise rates "relatively soon" if economic conditions keep improving. In a speech Friday, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the Fed may need to run a "high-pressure" economy in order to reverse damage from the crisis that depressed output and sidelined workers... In Asia, China's September exports fell 10% year-over-year in dollar terms, while imports shrank 1.9% after picking up in August. China's consumer price index rose 1.9%, while its producer price index increased 0.1% in September... In Europe, Germany's trade numbers for August came in strong, with exports growing 5.4% and imports rising 3%. Eurozone industrial production expanded 1.6% in August from July. COMPANY NEWS: The trading week started with Bloomberg reporting that Twitter's (TWTR) sales process was "almost dead" as its major suitors have lost interest amid investor pressure, including Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Google and Disney (DIS). On Friday, The Financial Times reported that Salesforce had ruled out a bid for the microblog service operator, citing an exclusive interview with CEO Marc Benioff... On Wednesday night, Wells Fargo (WFC) announced that its chairman and CEO John Stumpf is retiring from both the company and the board amid the bank's sales tactics scandal. The board has elected Tim Sloan, the company's president and COO, to succeed Stumpf as CEO and Stephen Sanger, its lead director, to serve as the board's non-executive chairman. On Friday, Wells Fargo reported better than expected earnings per share and revenue for the quarter. Two of its peers, JPMorgan (JPM) and Citigroup (C), also announced better than expected third quarter earnings per share and revenue, with the later benefiting from strong demand in its investment banking and trading businesses... Among other companies that announced quarterly results this week, Barracuda Networks (CUDA), Blackhawk Network (HAWK), and Delta Air Lines (DAL) advanced following their reports, while Alcoa (AA) declined. Meanwhile, Dover (DOV) cut its yearly earnings view and Rent-A-Center (RCII) pre-released worse than expected financial results for the quarter. Illumina (ILMN) also cut its revenue view for the third quarter as a result of a larger-than-anticipated year-over-year decline in high throughput sequencing instruments. Fortinet (FTNT) reported lower than expected preliminary results and Ericsson (ERIC) issued a profit warning for the third quarter, saying that results will be significantly lower than company expectations due to weaker demand for mobile broadband... Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) announced that it has stopped production and distribution of its Galaxy Note 7, asked carriers to stop sales of the device, and also asked customers with original or replacement devices to power down and stop using the phone. On Friday, the Department of Transportation issued an emergency order to ban all Galaxy Note7 smartphone devices from air transportation in the U.S... Mylan (MYL) agreed to a $465M settlement over charges that it overcharged the government for its EpiPen products... YUM! Brands (YUM) said the separation of its China business will be complete on October 31 and that it expects to return as much as $13.5B to shareholders by 2019 as part of a program started last year... On Wednesday, Humana (HUM) dropped after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reported that the percentage of the company's July 31, 2016 membership in 4-Star plans or higher declined to approximately 37%, or 1.17M members. The company, which said it believes that its Star ratings for the 2018 bonus year do not accurately reflect the company's actual performance under the applicable Star measures, also increased its 2016 EPS guidance, primarily due to better-than-previously-projected performance in its Medicare Advantage business and Healthcare Services segment. Aetna (AET), which has agreed to buy Humana, announced that it has the highest percentage of Medicare members enrolled in plans rated 4.0 overall stars among publicly traded companies with over 250,000 Medicare Advantage enrollees... Amazon (AMZN) launched its new Amazon Music Unlimited, a competitor to the likes of Spotify, Apple (AAPL) Music, and Google's Play Music... Verizon (VZ) general counsel Craig Silliman said the company has "reasonable basis" to believe Yahoo's (YHOO) recently-reported email data breach represents a "material" event related to the companies' deal, according to Reuters... In M&A news, Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) agreed to acquire the Tools business of Newell Brands (NWL) for $1.95B in cash. Polaris Industries (PII) announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Transamerican Auto Parts Company for an aggregate consideration of $665M. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow fell 0.55% to 18,138.38, the Nasdaq dropped 1.46% to 5,214.16, and the S&P 500 slid 0.95% to 2,132.98.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff mostly calmed nerves over a potential Twitter (TWTR) acquisition by saying at the company's analyst day, "While we look at everything, we pass on almost everything," Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin tells investors in a research note. The comment does not completely take a deal for Twitter off the table, but the probability of a transformational acquisition is now "dramatically lower," Zukin contends. As such, the analyst feels the "clouds are parting" on Salesforce's valuation "with sunshine ahead." Zukin believes the company has a "clear line of sight" to $10B in revenue in FY17. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $100 price target. Salesforce closed yesterday up $2.84, or 4%, to $71.26.

JPMorgan sees 'opportune entry point' for Salesforce
JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy believes shares of Salesforce (CRM) are at an "'opportune entry point" following the recent selloff. The pullback has been driven by a "slightly soft" Q2 and concerns about a potentially expensive acquisition of Twitter (TWTR), Murphy tells investors in a research note. After speaking to industry contacts at Dreamforce, the analyst sees a path for the "overhangs to fade" with a "better pace of business in Q3/Q4" as well as the eventual fading of the Twitter discussion. Murphy reiterates an Overweight rating on Salesforce with a $95 price target in a research note titled "The Most Valuable Cloud Asset Is Undeservedly Undervalued."

Mylan settlement does not end EpiPen issue, says Wells Fargo
In a research note titled "Forget After Hrs. Quarterbacking - It is Not Back to Normal," Wells Fargo analyst David Maris says Mylan questions still remain after the company's lowered 2016 outlook and $465M Department of Justice settlement. One of Mylan's earnings levers, EpiPen pricing, is now off the table going forward, Maris tells investors in a research note. The analyst disagrees with investors that think the settlement puts the EpiPen pricing issue largely behind the company. The deal with the DOJ addresses only the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services portion of the issue, it does nothing to answer the original issue of EpiPen pricing and consumers, Maris contends. He points out that Mylan also disclosed in Friday's regulatory filing, but not in its press release, an SEC investigation by the Division of Enforcement. Maris says he's "not too excited" and doesn't gauge how good the news is by the after-hours share rally of 10%. He believes Mylan is "not back to normal" and keeps a Market Perform rating on the stock with a $43-$45 price target range. The shares are up 12% in pre-market trading to $40.35. Raymond James this morning upgraded Mylan to Strong Buy.

JPMorgan tweaks Alibaba, Netflix targets lower ahead of Q3 results
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth lowered his price target for Alibaba (BABA) to $134 from $135 and his target for Netflix (NFLX) to $122 from $125 ahead of the Q3 reporting season. Both stocks remain Overweight rated. The analyst slightly lowered his estimates for Alibaba to reflect tougher inventory comps and increased investment spending. He remains positive on the company's overall monetization trends. On Netflix, Anmuth tweaked his 2017 average selling price forecast lower while increasing his investment spend estimate modestly. Within the Internet space, the analyst's top large-cap picks into the quarter are Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Amazon.com (AMZN). Among small-caps, his top picks into earnings are Yelp (YELP), Pandora (P) and Match Group (MTCH).

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.

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.

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.

Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Market Perform saying she believes shares are close to a floor. A merger with CBS (CBS) does not appear imminent, but if/when it does happen, CBS is unlikely to pay less than $32-$33 per Viacom share in a take-under, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note.

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.

Citi hopes Disney does not acquire Twitter
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet lays out four reasons for why he doesn't like Disney (DIS) pursuing an acquisition of Twitter (TWTR). Going back 15 years, the analyst can't think of a single web-based property that was successfully acquired by a traditional media firm. Two, he calls Twitter trends "troubling." Three, Bazinet estimates a cash offer would lower Disney's stock by $5 per share while an equity offer would drop its stock by $9. Four, the analyst feels it is unclear how Disney's content will help Twitter. Bazinet thinks both Yahoo (YHOO) and Twitter lost "significant money" when they streamed NFL content over the web. The analyst hopes Twitter is acquired by somebody other than Disney. He keeps a Buy rating on Disney shares. Both Loop Capital and Mizuho this morning downgraded Twitter to sell ratings.

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

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.

GoPro currently not shipping to Amazon, says Piper Jaffray

In a follow-up research note after speaking to management, Murphy clarified that the pause in shipping to Amazon is planned to be temporary. GoPro plans to resume shipping to Amazon at the end of October, Murphy adds. The action camera maker has been shipping to Best Buy (BBY), other partners and its own GoPro.com channel in the meantime, she points out. Nonetheless, the analyst believes the disruption at Amazon was not contemplated in guidance. Murphy is "incrementally concerned" on GoPro's ability to reach its second half of 2016 guidance. The analyst reiterates an Underweight rating on the shares with a $9 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 72c to $14.30.

He expects Amazon shipments to resume by month end and points out the hiatus does not apply to international Amazon sales. The one month impact would be 30,000 Hero 5 units through this channel, or less than $10M in GoPro sales, Coster estimates. He calls the decision to halt shipments to Amazon voluntary and believes the company has alternative distribution channels for the new product. Coster has an Overweight rating on GoPro. The shares are down 22c to $14.08 after Piper Jaffray this morning highlighted that Hero shipments to Amazon have stopped.

BofA thinks Verizon deal stays on track despite Yahoo data breach
Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post said that Yahoo's (YHOO) disclosure of the massive data breach impacting over 500M of its users is clearly a negative for the company that could result in email account closures, but he does not anticipate a major impact on Yahoo's business related to this breach, citing as evidence the fact that he is not aware of any significant business impairment or financial liability related to security breaches at LinkedIn (LNKD) in 2012 and at eBay (EBAY) in 2014. Post adds that the Target (TGT) data breach, which did include credit card info, is not directly comparable to Yahoo's breach. For Verizon (VZ) to back out of its acquisition agreement, Post thinks the company would need to assume Yahoo acted in bad faith during negotiations and that the Yahoo asset is impaired or comes with significant liability, neither of which he sees as being the case. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Yahoo and bumped his target on the shares to $55 from $53, citing an increased price target on Alibaba (BABA) that a peer at the firm recently set.

He notes that the sales contract says that a MAC will not be triggered by "any failure by Yahoo to meet its internal or published projections, budgets, plans, or forecasts of its revenues, earnings, or other financial performance or results of operations."

While giving his opinion on potential acquirers - which he sees possibly including Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), Disney (DIS), Fox (FOXA), and Alibaba (BABA) - Peck said the company's high price and "unique" asset limit the potential buyers and gave his view that a PE buyer is highly unlikely given the company's lack of free cash flow. Additionally, Peck thinks activist action at Twitter seems "extremely unlikely" despite "unsubstantiated investor conjecture" and media reports.

Bernstein analyst David Vernon initiated coverage of the U.S. airline sector, saying that he is "bullish on the sector" and asserting that it has "favorable..dynamics." He expects the sector's stocks to have "higher average highs and higher average lows over time," driven partly by its investments in return enhancing programs, revenue enhancing initiatives, and "a stronger outlook for longer term capital return" which isn't reflected in valuation, according to the analyst. Vernon recommends owning airlines that have "less financial and operating leverage." He says that he is "favorably disposed" to Southwest (LUV) and Delta Air Lines (DAL), which he says have high returns and low leverage, and is less upbeat on United Continental (UAL), which he says has higher operating leverage and execution risk. He is bearish on American Airlines (AAL), as he thinks that its capacity growth and financial leverage create significant risk.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Norfolk Southern (NSC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Avondale with Donald Broughton saying he continues to believe volumes will continue to decline, yields will continue to disappoint, cost savings will be increasingly harder to achieve, return on invested capital will continue to deteriorate, and the combination of those factors should result in fiscal 2017 earnings below fiscal 2016, pressuring valuation. 2. Fortinet (FTNT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver saying he believes that in addition to slower overall growth in the network security market, heightened competition is impacting sales growth. 3. Alcoa (AA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners saying she believes Alcoa's aerospace-focused downstream segment will continue to struggle with execution issues and delays over the next several quarters. 4. Emerson (EMR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Shannon O'Callaghan saying analysts need to lower estimates to reflect Emerson's portfolio transformation, pension headwinds and end market pressures. 5. Nanometrics (NANO) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Weston Twigg saying 3D NAND equipment demand is likely to peak in 2017.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on the today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dover (DOV) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with an $87 price target. The firm thinks that the oil-related headwinds the company had been experiencing have peaked. It says that the company's non-oil business now accounts for 93% of its earnings, up from about 60% previously, and Bernstein expects those units to generate low to mid single digit percentage organic growth. Additionally, the firm is extremely upbeat on the company's acquisition of Wayne, saying that the deal increases the value of Dover's stock by $7 per share. 2. Joy Global (JOY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at FBR Capital by analyst Lucas Pipes, who also raised its price target for shares to $25 from $14. The analyst has increased confidence Joy's growth opportunities following its strategic wins in India and the Canadian oil sands and notes the company's organic order rate is tracking well against his estimates. 3. Ducommun (DCO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord, which raised its price target to $23 from $19 on Ducommun shares. The firm cited better visibility, execution and de-leveraging of its balance sheet. The recent divestitures are expected to significantly contribute to improved margins, the firm said. 4. Pentair (PNR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global by analyst Ryan Cassil, who raised his price target to $70 from $59. The analyst believes the worst margin performance is behind the company in its V&C segment and has increased confidence in management's forecast for decrementals to be reduced by half in Q2 as volumes increase seasonally and high-cost inventory is turned. 5. U.S. Concrete (USCR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Sidoti by analyst Michael Conti, who raised his price target to $90 from $72. The analyst views the capital raise from debt refinancing as a catalyst for acquisitions. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Illumina selloff a buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk recommends using today's selloff in shares of Illumina as a buying opportunity. The stock traded down 24% last night after the company reported preliminary Q3 revenue of $607M, below the Street's $628.3M estimate. A lower number of HiSeq 2500/4000 installs as well as a HiSeq X Ten placement slip drove the revenue miss, Quirk tells investors in a research note. He notes, however, that his HiSeq X checks found the pipeline remains "very strong" at 95 systems, with a majority driven by the Chinese precision medicine program. He views $130 as a "technical floor" for the shares and dropped his price target for Illumina to $150 from $163. Quirk keeps an Overweight rating on the name.
