Neutral
Bank of America downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird
As previously reported, Baird analyst David George downgraded Bank of America to Neutral from Buy as he believes the post-election rally has largely discounted the potential benefits of rising interest rates, lower taxes, and more aggressive capital return. George raised his price target to $18 from $17 on Bank of America shares.

As previously reported, Guggenheim downgraded Bank of America to Neutral from Buy and raised its price target to $22 from $19. Analyst Eric Wasserstrom said valuation embeds his above consensus earnings estimate for 2017-18 and any upside will be increasingly driven by macro-factors rather than company specific drivers.

Deutsche says buy Facebook following recent weakness
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley views Facebook's $6B share repurchase beginning in 2017 as a "welcome launch" of a capital return program. The stock represents an "outstanding value" following the recent selloff, Walmsley tells investors in a research note. He recommends that investors add to positions at current levels and keeps a Buy rating on Facebook with a $150 price target.

Internet stock weakness creates buying opportunity, says RBC Capital
EBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney says that the 5%-10% decline in Internet stocks since the election has created more attractive long-term opportunities. The analyst does not expect the Trump Administration's policies to have a major impact on the fundamentals of the Internet sector. His favorite large-cap names in the sector are, in order, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB), and Priceline (PCLN). His favorite small-cap names are, in order, Yelp (YELP), Criteo (CRTO), and GoDaddy (GDDY).

Piper sees Trump-related Internet selloff as 'rare opportunity'
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says he would be "buying the fear" priced into Internet mega-caps. Concerns of President-Elect Trump's impact on tech companies are being largely extrapolated from sound bites that are unlikely to manifest during Trump's presidency, Munster tells investors in a research note. The selloff in "best-in-class" large cap internet stocks Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Netflix (NFLX) presents a "rare opportunity," Munster writes. He believes Trump's threats towards Amazon are without merit and that net neutrality is unlikely to be reversed. He finds the valuations for each of the mega-caps "very attractive."

Facebook updates on metrics don't alter value proposition, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian noted that Facebook has identified a number of metrics that were being calculated incorrectly by the company. While significant, Facebook does not currently bill its clients based on any of these metrics, noted Sebastian, who doesn't think the news alters Facebook's core value proposition for users or advertisers. Also, Facebook's plans for a "Measurement Council" should improve client engagement and communication, contends the analyst, who keeps an Outperform rating on the shares and recommends investors continue to add to Facebook positions on weakness.

Citi fields Pandora questions after Amazon on-demand launch
Citi analyst Mark Kelley says he's received a lot of questions from investors over the last few days on the impact from potentially lower prices for Pandora's (P) on-demand offering after Amazon (AMZN) launched a competing service. Amazon's on-demand offering costs $7.99 per month for Prime users, or $3.99 if you only want to listen on your echo device. Non-Prime users must pay $9.99 per month. The launch by Amazon has caused some speculation in the press that Apple (AAPL) is going to lower its prices, Kelley tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not expect Pandora to lower the price of on-demand to $7.99 per month. Kelley still believes on-demand music is the way the industry moves forward and he remains bullish on Pandora's long-term opportunity. The analyst has a Buy rating on the shares with a $16 price target.

Apple to become more reliant on the iPhone, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz believes Apple "lacks the courage" to lead the next generation of innovation, and instead will become more reliant than ever on the iPhone. Over the next decade, the analyst expects the stock to generally underperform the market, noting however that the stock did and could outperform in years with radical redesigns. He reiterates a Perform rating on the shares.

Oppenheimer recommends buying Technology, Energy ahead of breakout
Oppenheimer analyst Ari Wald says that the S&P 500's bullish reversal of its eight-week downtrend is confirming the start of a year-end rally, and cyclical stocks should be owned given resuming strength in the index's long-term trend. The analyst thinks the current opportunity is to buy Technology and Energy ahead of a breakout, namely Apple (AAPL), Seagate (STX), Skyworks (SWKS), Western Digital (WDC), Apache (APA), Chevron (CVX), Halliburton (HAL), and Helmerich & Payne (HP).

He noted Apple will continue to generate strong profit share despite iPhone sales moderating in North America over the past several weeks. Walkley expects steady iPhone 7 sales will help Apple return to growth in Q1 2017 and reiterated his Buy rating and $140 price target on the shares.

GoPro downgraded to Market Perform after drone recall at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James downgraded GoPro to Market Perform from Outperform following the company's announcement of an immediate recall of the roughly 2,500 Karma drones purchased since launch on October 23.. Analyst Tavis McCourt is concerned about GoPro's brand image following a 12-18 month period of product management missteps and its ability to broaden its product portfolio into different areas. McCourt didn't make any changes to 2016 estimates but is less comfortable in potential upside and sustainability of growth in 2017 and beyond.
