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.

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.

Yahoo downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin downgraded Yahoo to Hold saying shares now trade above her previous $40 price target, she worries Verizon (VZ) will walk away or renegotiate the acquisition price lower due to the 2014 hacking event, and lowered FY16 estimates to the low end of guidance.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: Yahoo (YHOO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham with analyst Laura Martin saying shares now trade above her previous $40 price target. 2. Chipotle (CMG) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Vaccaro saying he believes the lost sales, still down 15-20% after the initial E.coli incident, could prove to be permanent and reflect the "new normal," increasing downside risk in the stock. 3. Prudential (PRU) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital with analyst Randy Binner saying he's taking some risk off the table ahead of the third quarter earnings reports. 4. DDR Corp. (DDR) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Boenning & Scattergood with analyst Floris van Dijkum saying DDR could suffer higher than expected dilution due to asset sales like the recently closed upstate New York portfolio and said there could be more downward pressure on NAV based on further disposals. 5. Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman analyst John Nelson citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
