American Axle downgraded on acquisition, headwinds at KeyBanc
As noted earlier, KeyBanc downgraded American Axle (AXL) to Sector Weight from Overweight. Analyst Brett Hoselton says that the company's acquisition of Metaldyne (MPG) does not appear to have accomplished its goals of diversifying its geographic focus and its customer base. Additionally, the analyst expects the company to be hurt by slowing light vehicle production growth in North America and its loss of 25% of the GM (GM) replacement business.

General Motors downgraded ahead of a US auto cycle peak at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded General Motors to Neutral from Buy. Analyst John Murphy believes the peak of the US auto cycle is approaching which will keep a "lid" on the stock. Murphy said the incremental boost from leasing represented more than 30% of industry new vehicle sales and incentive levels appear elevated and lease residual assumptions appear to be more aggressive. Additionally, he believes the mix benefit, volume, and raw material tailwinds could reverse at some point. Murphy lowered General Motors' price target to $37 from $43.

Comcast solid quarter overshadowed by OTT, wireless threats, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan says Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) reported a "solid" Q3, but notes that shares were likely impacted by comments surrounding AT&T's (T) $35 Over The Top service, which will be a slimmed-down service designed to expand the overall market initially. While the analyst points out that the "legitimate concern" is a wireless acquisition of T-Mobile (TMUS), he thinks this is a 2018 event and that Comcast can integrate cellular/WIFI to create a unique service. Horan reiterates an Outperform rating and $74 price target on Comcast's shares.

Comcast upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Amy Yong upgraded Comcast (CMCSA) to Outperform and raised its price target to $77 from $69 saying the AT&T (T)/Time Warner (TWX) and Starz (STRZA)-Lionsgate (LGF) deals highlight the merits of distribution content. Yong said Comcast is becoming a one-stop shop for all things consumer with wireless optionality, digital initiatives, and Xfinity's brand paired with strategic acquisitions like DreamWorks and BuzzFeed. The analyst said Comcast's balance sheet optionality leaves room for further vertical deals and said its DreamWorks' TV business, library of content, and direct piper into China are heavenly undervalued.

Jefferies says approval of Time Warner deal 'far from certain'
Jefferies analyst Mike McCormack believes regulatory approval of AT&T's (T) Time Warner acquisition is "far from certain." The analyst expects a "lengthy and arduous regulatory process" and believes the Comcast-NBCU deal serves as "both a precedent and a concern." The deal looks "modestly accretive" with "relatively small synergies," McCormack tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on AT&T with a $48 price target.

The analyst raised his price target on Alibaba shares to $130 from $120 and reiterates a Conviction List Buy rating on the stock, which remains his top pick in its sector. In the Chinese Internet space, the analyst also has Buy ratings on Tencent (TCEHY), Baidu (BIDU), JD.com (JD), Ctrip.com (CTRP), NetEase (NTES) and Vipshop (VIPS).
