On The Fly: What to watch in Goldman Sachs earnings report

Goldman Sachs (GS) is scheduled to report results of its third fiscal quarter before the market open on October 18, with a conference call scheduled for 9:30 am EDT. What to watch for: ONLINE LENDING: On Thursday, Goldman Sachs announced the launch of its online consumer-lending platform, known as Marcus and named after one of the bank's founders. At Marcus.com, borrowers can apply for fixed-rate, no-fee personal loans of up to $30,000 for periods of two to six years. This puts Goldman in direct competition with fintech upstarts, such as the venture-funded online lender LendingClub (LC), The Wall Street Journal said. In August, The Journal had reported that the bank was turning to more basic banking businesses of deposits and loans for the middle class, and was using the Internet to do so. Aside from Marcus, Goldman began taking consumer deposits online in April after acquiring General Electric's (GE) online-savings platform, which came with $16B of deposits and a call center in Iowa, the publication added. LIBYAN FUND SUIT: After two and half years, the legal battle between Goldman Sachs and Libya's $67B sovereign fund came to an end last week, when a London court ruled that the bank did not dupe Libyan officials. At the center of the dispute was the $1.2B the Libyan Investment Authority paid Goldman to invest in nine equity derivatives trades, which turned out to be worthless. BREXIT UNCERTAINTIES REMAIN: Responding to a Sunday Times report that it planned to shift 2,000 jobs away from London if Brexit caused too many headaches for banking in the region, a Goldman Sachs spokesperson told Bloomberg last week that the bank had not yet decided on any job transfers. The spokesperson noted that Goldman is still evaluating the implications of Brexit and that "numerous uncertainties" remain, adding that "as a result we have not taken any decisions as to what our eventual response will be." The month before, Reuters reported that U.K. Prime minister Theresa May was planning to meet business chiefs from companies, including Goldman Sachs, IBM (IBM) and Amazon (AMZN), in an effort to reassure investors after the country's vote to exit the EU. NEW FED PROPOSALS: Last month, two U.S. regulators pressed for new limits on banks' involvement in commodities and other businesses outside traditional lending, with the Federal Reserve recommending that Congress repeal banks' authority to engage in merchant banking, according to The Wall Street Journal. Given its long history in merchant banking, Goldman Sachs could be the bank hit hardest by the proposals, the publication noted.

As noted earlier, Wedbush analyst Henry Coffey initiated LendingClub with a $3.75 price target and an Underperform rating. The analyst says that the company is three to five years from reporting a "meaningful" profit. He thinks that the company's originations probably won't rise much above current levels, given the limitations of its marketplace model and the difficulties of obtaining funding from more conventional sources.

Intel upgraded to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse upgraded Intel (INTC) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $45 from $38. The chipmaker closed Friday up 6c to $36.08. Fears of a slowdown in its Server business and sustained weakness in PCs have led Intel shares to underperform peers thus far in 2016, Muse tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects the underperformance to change as the company's Data Center Group segment accelerates to 10%+plus growth in the second half of 2016. Further, Muse thinks Intel's "competitive moat remains" despite potential competition from ARM Holdings (ARMH) and IBM's (IBM) Power9 architecture. He sees 25% upside in Intel shares from current levels.

Speculation suggests Imperva takeover in 'near sight,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Shaul Eyal is not surprised to see the list of potential Imperva (IMPV) buyer candidates mentioned in an article from Bloomberg, which includes Cisco (CSCO), IBM (IBM), Fortinet (FTNT), Akamai (AKAM), and privately held Forcepoint. The analyst envisions Imperva's product line aligning particularly well with Cisco's and IBM's given the recent drive by both to expand their security offerings. Eyal sees a potential price target ranging between $55-$60 if the speculation has any merit and sufficient interest from multiple bidders. Oppenheimer has an Outperform rating on Imperva's shares.

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.

Goldman suggests Apple 'go big' in content with launch of Prime-like service
Goldman Sachs analysts Simona Jankowski and Drew Borst made the case in a new note to investors that Apple (AAPL) should launch a subscription bundle, in the model of Amazon's (AMZN) "Prime" service, in order to reignite growth and avoid commoditization as smartphone sales plateau. Apple has the power to "turn the razor/blade model upside down," argue the analysts, who note that the iPhone giant can afford to be very aggressive in content, by paying premiums for must-have material or pricing services below competitors. An "Apple Prime" subscription bundle priced at $50 month - which would include the iPhone, Apple Music, Apple TV, Apple original content, and potentially live sports - implies EPS generated by "Prime" customers would be over 10% accretive by 2021, the analysts contend. Goldman keeps a Buy rating on Apple shares.
