Dollar Tree valuation is quite favorable, says UBS
UBS analyst Michael Lasser said Dollar Tree's valuation remains favorable. Lasser said top-line trends for Q3 were probably subdued but with the shares trading at a discount and its PE trading at just a sight premium to the S&P, soft trends will be reflective of a tough environment rather than a change in productivity. The analyst said margins should continue to gain as synergies with is Family Dollar acquisition accelerate. Lasser reiterated his Buy rating and $90 price target on Dollar Tree shares.

Morgan Stanley positive on Analog Devices ahead of earnings and into 2017
Morgan Stanley analyst Craig Hettenbach said Analog Devices (ADI) is one of his top Overweight picks and sees upside to earnings for the next 2 quarters given strength in broad-based markets and strong opex controls. The analyst expects October quarterly earnings of 90c and $942M, in line with consensus, to prove to be conservative and sees meaningful accretion from the Linear Technology (LLTC) deal adding 84c to 2018 earnings and believes cost savings of $150M will prove to be too low.

Analog Devices likely to report beat and raise results, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani, expects Analog Devices to report beat and raise October quarter results, driven by multiple positive catalysts, including strong sales of Apple's iPhones, the stabilization of demand for passive safety systems in autos after multiple quarters of declines, and the high probability that the company's prior guidance was conservative. He keeps a $75 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.

Monster Beverage results 'better than feared,' says Stifel
Although Monster's Q3 results came in below expectations, they were "better than feared," according to Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan. The analyst blames the miss partly on higher expenses and shipment timing. He notes that the company's gross sales accelerated meaningfully in October versus Q3, and he thinks that its U.S. market remains strong. The analyst trimmed his price target on the name to $178 from $185 and keeps a Buy rating.

Monster Beverage 'bull case still intact,' says RBC Capital
After Monster (MNST) reported weaker than expected results, RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi blames the miss partially on the company's transition to Coca-Cola's (KO) system.

Monster Beverage should be bought on recent weakness, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan continues to expect Monster's sales to rise by at least high single digit percentage levels through at least 2018, partly driven by international expansion and innovation. The analyst attributes recent weakness in the stock to a lack of new products by the company and perceptions of decelerating energy drink growth. But he thinks the U.S. energy drink category "remains healthy," and he says that Monster is poised to offer new products. He recommends buying the shares on weakness and keeps a $185 price target and Buy rating on the stock.
