Piper analysis yields $163 current fair value for Apple shares
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson expects Apple's services revenue to rise from an 11% contribution in FY16 to 17% in FY20. As services approaches 20% of revenue, with a larger contribution to profitability due to higher margin relative to the core business, many investors will shift to a sum-of-the-parts valuation on Apple, Olson tells investors in a research note. His sum-of-the-parts analysis looking out two years values Apple at $195 per share. Discounting that back two years, the analyst comes up with a current fair value of $163 per share. Apple closed Friday down 78c to $139.91. Olson remains a buyer of Apple citing the "growing anticipation" around the iPhone 8 and a "strong trajectory" for services revenue. He maintains an Overweight rating on the shares with a $155 price target.

iPhone 8 could match or surpass iPhone 6, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani believes that the unit sales and growth of iPhone 8, due out in September, "could match or even surpass" the performance of the iPhone 6. The analyst expects the iPhone 8 to feature wireless charging and an improved processor., as well as "a complete redesign." He believes that the redesign can cause Apple's share gains to accelerate, enabling the growth of its services business to increase. Daryanani keeps a $155 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.

Apple price target raised to $155 from $135 at Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri raised his price target on Apple to $155 from $135 as he believes Street estimates remain way too low. He sees an aging iPhone base, especially in China, that should lead to a powerful launch of the iPhone 8. In addition to Street estimates having to come up, Arcuri also sees the potential for additional multiple expansion. Arcuri reiterated his Outperform rating on Apple shares.

Snap initiated with a Sector Perform at FBN Securities
FBN Securities analyst Shebly Seyrafi started Snap (SNAP) with a Sector Perform rating and $23 price target. The analyst cites the recent slowing of user growth and the company's weaker presence outside of the 12-24 age demographic as concerns. Seyrafi believes, however, that Facebook (FB) has interest in acquiring Snap at the right price, which effectively puts a floor in the shares.

Facebook remains top large-cap Internet idea at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth says he's increasingly confident in his above-consensus 2017/2018 revenue estimates for Facebook following an analysis of the company's product and advertising changes. Facebook monthly active users grew last year at the fastest rate since the company went public in 2012 while Instagram added its most recent 100M users at its fastest pace in history, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. Facebook's product changes are working to drive engagement at scale, the analyst argues. Facebook remains Anmuth's favorite large-cap Internet idea with an Overweight rating and $170 price target. The social media giant closed yesterday up 42c to $137.72.

The analyst sees better than expected growth and margins and forward multiples as attractive relative to its growth/return profile. Sheridan reiterated his Buy rating Facebook shares.

Social advertising exec sees Facebook spending rising, says William Blair
After meeting with two separate executives who head social media spending and video at a "large, digital-only agency," William Blair analyst Ralph Schackart said he came away with the impression that social and Facebook (FB) will grow again in 2017, noting that the head of social expects her clients' Facebook spending to grow around 35% this year and for their Twitter (TWTR) budgets to decline 20%-30%, with some of that due to a spending shift to Facebook. The analyst, who thinks Facebook shares have near-term upside potential to $160-$165 and still believes it can be a "$200-plus stock," keeps an Outperform rating on the name.
