Bank of America operating leverage hitting an inflection, says Goldman
Goldman analyst Richard Ramsden believes Bank of America is hitting an inflection point in operating leverage driven by low single digit growth, stable credit, and absolute reductions in the expense base. The analyst believes topline growth will reach approximately 4% annually through to 2018, driven by consumer bank and wealth management initiatives. Ramsden reiterates his Conviction Buy rating on Bank of American and raised his price target to $19 from $17 given the combination of revenue growth and expense discipline.

Piper's teen survey shows declining Facebook engagement
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says his firm's latest survey of over 10,000 teens shows Facebook engagement is decreasing. Engagement in the Fall survey is 52% versus 60% in Spring. Factoring out shifts in the population surveyed, core Facebook usage likely declined by three basis points, which indicates Facebook is gradually becoming less relevant versus Instagram and Snapchat, Munster tells investors in a research note. He points out, however, that teens indicating they use Instagram increased five points in the Fall 2016 survey, slightly faster than Snapchat's four points. Desire for engagement from brands on Instagram will drive long-term monetization above core Facebook levels, Munster contends, while noting that declining Facebook usage is a negative. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $185 price target.

Facebook price target raised to $170 from $154 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju raised Facebook's price target to $170 from $154 on a roll forward to the end of 2017 estimates. Ju's Outperform rating and investment thesis remain unchanged and continues to expect Facebook will be able to drive long term revenue growth without a material lift in ad loads, street models continue to underestimate the long-term monetization potential of upcoming new products, and upward bias to estimates, which do not contemplate contributions from multiple other products including WhatsApp, Messenger, and Offers/Local.

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).

Facebook keeps expanding addressable market, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Blake Harper noted that Facebook has launched several new products over the past week as the company keeps working to expand its addressable market. Among the new offerings, Harper sees "Events" as a natural extension of what people already use Facebook for, views "Workplace by Facebook" as the largest strategic leap and said "Marketplace" should be helpful for users but more difficult to scale as a business considering Facebook's prior challenges in making inroads in e-commerce. While he does not expect near term revenues from any of these products, Harper said Facebook's innovation gives him confidence in his longer-term estimates and keeps a Buy rating and $165 price target 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. Golar LNG (GLNG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter saying he believes negative news of low LNG rates, delayed new terminals, and potential financing gap are reflected in shares. 2. Coach (COH) upgraded to Positive from Mixed at OTR Global following checks that indicate steady progress by store managers, more appealing offerings, new open-to-the-public Mother's Day sale at full-price Coach stores and tight wholesale distribution. 3. Harley-Davidson (HOG) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Gerrick Johnson saying the stock provides a good contrarian trading opportunity, given the highly negative sentiment towards it. Over the longer term, the analyst thinks that the company's accelerated development of new products will beat fruit. 4. Dollar Tree upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Paul Trussell saying the Family Dollar acquisition will provide "more upside opportunities." 5. Houghton Mifflin (HMHC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Andre Benjamin saying the shares can rally on both positive estimate revisions and multiple expansion after underperforming year-to-date.
