MKM Partners raises NVIDIA, AMD price targets on inflecting semi opportunities
MKM Partners analyst Ian Ing raised his price target for NVIDIA (NVDA) to $106 from $87, saying that thematic attention is heating up as large suppliers are crowding into artificial intelligence as an investment theme with non-GPU solutions. While other suppliers may be able to come up with better performance-for-power in certain use cases, he believes NVIDIA GPUs still have user stickiness with developer incumbency and easy-to-use tools that will be difficult to overcome. The analyst also raised his price target for AMD (AMD) to $10.50 from $8 to reflect improved prospects for the company driven by new product pipeline. Although Ian expects AMD to be a relatively minor player, its shares are helped by continued A.I. headlines and NVIDIA, Intel (INTC), and Qualcomm (QCOM) turning increasingly vocal on the opportunity. He reiterates a Buy rating on NVIDIA and AMD shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Comerica (CMA) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst David George saying he sees a more balanced risk/reward as the company is already getting significant credit for earnings leverage from its efficiency program. 2. Qualcomm (QCOM) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst James Faucette saying Qualcomm's valuation adequately reflects incremental smartphone opportunities and NXP Semiconductor (NXPI) contribution. 3. CSX (CSX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Fadi Chamoun saying the company will be hurt in the near-term by "an over-supplied trucking market," while its cost savings are expected to decelerate next year and macro economic trends will become less favorable to the company. 4. SolarEdge (SEDG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities, to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital, and to Neutral from Buy at Roth Capital. 5. Capitala Finance (CPTA) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer and to Neutral from Buy at Ladenburg. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

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.

Needham recommends buying Apple on Pokemon Go, Samsung upside
Following Apple's (AAPL) Q4 results, Needham analyst Laura Martin notes that iPhone revenue rose driven in part by Samsung's (SSNLF) Galaxy Note 7 imploding in September and estimates $10B-$20B of brand value transfers to Apple during the next adoption cycle owing to Samsung's poor handling of the replacement, recall and ultimate discontinuation of the Note 7. Of the company's extra services revenue quarter over quarter, the analyst's channel checks indicate that Niantic and Nintendo's (NTDOY) Pokemon Go represented much of the growth. Martin reiterates a Strong Buy and $150 price target on Apple's 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).
