Pandora launching promotional tool kit for artists, labels, WSJ reports

Pandora (P) is making a promotional tool kit available to help artists and labels market their music, The Wall Street Journal reports. According to the report, artists and labels who use Pandora's Amp platform can record audio messages on their smartphones "asking their fans to give new songs a chance." The tools are rolling out on the heels of Pandora's direct-licensing deals with major record labels, which were struck in order to launch an on-demand subscription offering that will compete with Apple Music (AAPL), Amazon Music Unlimited (AMZN) and Spotify.

Pandora deal negative, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves says that Pandora's deals with music labels create a business model that "is fraught with a lack of limited control of content costs and a lack of incremental leverage on operating expenses." The analyst says that the agreement "cedes control of (Pandora's) content costs to the major labels," significantly reducing his confidence in the company's profitability going forward. He keeps an Underweight rating on the stock.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CBS (CBS) upgraded to Buy from Sell at UBS with analyst Doug Mitchelson saying he sees any deal with Viacom (VIA) as priced into CBS shares already. He also has increased confidence in consensus estimates for CBS and sees further upside if the national TV ad market and CBS' ratings remain strong. 2. Pandora (P) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Heath Terry saying he sees significant upside to out-year estimates from premium radio and on-demand subscriptions. He expects competition to ease as new entrants slow and existing providers focus on profitability and limit "free" models. 3. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Shaun Kelley saying shares remain fairly under-owned and thinks estimate revisions will move higher due to market momentum, better ROI for Parisian, Cotai infrastructure additions, and optionality from Japan and real estate. 4. KBR (KBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Chad Dillard saying yesterday's 10% post-guidance cut selloff is overdone and backward-looking. 5. West Marine (WMAR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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).

Apple to have in-line Q4 results, Q1 guidance beat, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr. expects Apple to report in-line Q4 results and provide higher than expected Q1 revenue and iPhone sales guidance. However, the analyst says it's " too soon to have conviction on the strength of the iPhone 7 cycle." Sacconaghi, Jr. maintains that the extra week in this year's December quarter will be offset by a lower expected channel build this year and seven fewer, high volume launch sales days in the quarter this year. The analyst raised the price target on the stock to $135 from $125 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Piper's teen survey shows spike in iPhone share
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says his firm's survey of over 10,000 teens indicates Apple's share of smartphone ownership has spiked. 74% of teens said they have an iPhone versus 69% in the Spring survey, while 79% of teens expect their next device to be an iPhone versus 75% in the Spring, Munster tells investors in a research note. He notes that this is the largest survey-over-survey change since Spring to Fall in 2014. Munster views the survey as a positive data point on how consumers are viewing the new iPhone 7. He keeps an Overweight rating on Apple shares with a $151 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 36c to $116.98.

Apple estimates raised at Morgan Stanley on confidence in next 'supercycle'
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty raised her estimates for Apple for the second half of this calendar year on better than expected iPhone7 demand, but added that she believes higher near-term iPhone estimates are largely priced into shares. The real catalyst for the stock, however, is the FY18 "supercycle," in which Huberty is increasingly confident, she tells investors. Noting that the iPhone installed base is 60% larger, but that unit estimates are just 6% higher compared to iPhone 6, the analyst said she sees the potential for "meaningful" FY18 estimate revisions. Huberty keeps an Overweight rating on Apple and raised her price target on the shares to $124 from $123.

Wells Fargo thinks that Intel's (INTC) September quarter report and December quarter guidance will be boosted by several positive catalysts, including signs of improving PC demand, solid revenue momentum at its Data Center Group, and ramping sales of modems for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 7. The firm keeps a $40-$50 price target on Intel and continues to identify it as a top pick.

JPMorgan says buy GoPro on today's weakness
JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster views today's weakness in shares of GoPro (GPRO) as a buying opportunity. While GoPro is not shipping Hero 5 via the Amazon (AMZN) channel today, Amazon has been consistently a top five channel partner for the action camera maker, Coster tells investors in a research note. 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.

GoPro currently not shipping to Amazon, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy says she uncovered that GoPro (GPRO) is not currently selling to Amazon (AMZN), at least domestically, in a change that occurred over the last three weeks. 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.

Morgan Stanley sees 'un-grandfathering' peaking for Netflix in Q3
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes the market expects Netflix (NFLX) to report Q3 domestic net subscriber additions that fall short of the company's 300K forecast. However, he thinks the impact of "un-grandfathering" will peak in Q3 and that the percentage of U.S. members seeing price increases will begin to fade in Q4. While acknowledging that Amazon (AMZN) continues to grow as a competitor for content and time spent, Swinburne notes that local and regional players in many markets continue to struggle. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $110 price target on Netflix shares.
