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).

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.

The analyst believes Pandora's $4B revenue 2020 revenue goal will be difficult to achieve as the on-demand subscription streaming market has become increasingly competitive and the user base is fully penetrated. Schindler believes acquisition speculation has supported Pandora's valuation rather than fundamentals and lowered estimates to reflect reduced On-Demand services value given lower gross margin assumptions.

Consumer satisfaction with competitors has caught up to Netflix, says UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson said that the firm's Evidence Lab survey indicated that U.S. consumer satisfaction with Amazon Prime Video (AMZN) and Hulu - the joint venture owned by Time Warner (TWX), Comcast (CMCSA), 21st Century Fox (FOXA), and Disney (DIS) - has now caught up to Netflix (NFLX), advising that investors should "continue to monitor competitive threats closely" as Netflix leads the category but demand for consumer media time, attention and wallet has intensified. The analyst, who added that Netflix's "pricing power remains unclear" based on the firm's survey work, keeps a Neutral rating and $92 price target on Netflix shares.
