Roth Capital cuts Intel price target after guidance disappoints
Roth Capital analyst Suji Desilva lowered his price target for Intel to $40 from $43 after disappointing guidance. However, the analyst expects the shares to recover with a reset of expectations. Desilva continues to be encouraged by the company's transition to growth areas such as cloud data center, networking and IoT, and by the stable margin profile. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

Intel fundamentals improving despite server shortfall, says Baird
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra believes Intel will maintain its 40% market share in mobile resulting in a continued decline in its mobile losses in 2017. The analyst noted the company lowered its outlook for client data center groups, which could weigh on the shares for the remainder of the year. Gerra believes the longer-term fundamentals remain intact with a still rising DCG mix, stabilization in PC comps, and further reductions in mobile losses driving a sustainable resumption in earnings growth. Gerra reiterated his Outperform rating and $42 price target on Intel shares.

Intel Q4 outlook 'disappointing, but beatable,' says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis says Intel issued a "disappointing, but beatable" outlook for Q4. The guidance, which calls for below seasonal growth and gross margin decline of 180 basis points, appears conservative, Lipacis tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He lowered his price target for Intel shares to $46 from $49 but keeps a Buy rating on the name. The analyst likes the "gross margin setup" into 2017.

Intel data center results bode badly for several stocks, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest says that Intel's (INTC) data center results and commentary were "modestly disappointing," as enterprise demand for the company's data center products was "weak," according to the firm. The firm thinks that the negative enterprise results are "modestly negative for stocks with enterprise exposure, including Micron (MU), Seagate (STX) and Western Digital (WDC)."

Needham sees Netflix programming pivot as 'key story' of the quarter
Needham analyst Laura Martin notes that Netflix beat revenue, subscriber guidance and estimates in Q3, and sees its programming pivot as the key story of the quarter. Although the pivot toward more owned programming hurts margins and free cash flow in the near term, the analyst likes the fact that Netflix is now building a content library. Martin reiterates a Hold rating on the shares.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Norfolk Southern (NSC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Avondale with Donald Broughton saying he continues to believe volumes will continue to decline, yields will continue to disappoint, cost savings will be increasingly harder to achieve, return on invested capital will continue to deteriorate, and the combination of those factors should result in fiscal 2017 earnings below fiscal 2016, pressuring valuation. 2. Fortinet (FTNT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver saying he believes that in addition to slower overall growth in the network security market, heightened competition is impacting sales growth. 3. Alcoa (AA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners saying she believes Alcoa's aerospace-focused downstream segment will continue to struggle with execution issues and delays over the next several quarters. 4. Emerson (EMR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Shannon O'Callaghan saying analysts need to lower estimates to reflect Emerson's portfolio transformation, pension headwinds and end market pressures. 5. Nanometrics (NANO) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Weston Twigg saying 3D NAND equipment demand is likely to peak in 2017.

As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded Alcoa to Neutral from Buy and lowered its price target to $30 from $33. Analyst Timna Tanners believes Alcoa's aerospace-focused downstream segment will continue to struggle with execution issues and delays over the next several quarters. The analyst cut our estimates to reflect a weaker aerospace view and sees risk to Alcoa's guidance and continued margin pressures.

Apple Q4 estimates raised above Street at Stifel
Stifel analyst Aaron Rakers raised his September quarter estimates for Apple above consensus levels, citing his belief that iPhone sales will beat expectations. Rakers estimates that Apple's installed base is nearing 700M, and he notes that the company's December quarter includes an extra week versus last year. Rakers expects the company's December quarter EPS guidance to come in above expectations, but he predicts that Apple's revenue guidance will be roughly in-line. The analyst raised his price target on the stock to $130 from $120 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Apple near-term outlook improved, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich believe Apple's (AAPL) Q4 guidance could have upside due to an extra week in the quarter and checks that show iPhone 7 demand is a bit better than the iPhone 6s. The analyst also noted the Samsung (SSNLF) Note 7 problem remains a wild card, but believes it should help Apple's retention rate. Milunovich said the current Apple share price reflects a gradual erosion of its installed base and the amount people are willing to spend with Apple, which he believes is conservative. Milunovich reiterated his Buy rating and $127 price target on Apple shares.

Apple expectations have moved higher, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner believes investor expectations for Apple have already moved higher and are reflecting a September quarter beat and potential guidance raise. To reflect increased build plans at Asian suppliers and a boost from "short-lived" U.S. carrier promotions, Scribner raised her September quarter iPhone estimate to 46M units and December quarter estimate to 75M. Positive iPhone comments should continue in the next two months, supporting the shares into year-end, Scribner tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. She raised her price target for Apple shares to $108 from $105 but keeps a Hold rating on the name citing slowing longer term smartphone growth.

Most of Note impact on Broadcom could be offset, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani says that most of the impact on Broadcom (AVGO) of the Samsung Note 7 recall will be offset if consumers returning the Note buy Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 7 devices. The analyst says that Broadcom has $1-$2 more content per device in the iPhones than in the Note, so he thinks that the recall could actually provide "a tailwind for Broadcom." The analyst keeps a $190 price target and Top Pick rating on the stock.
