LivePerson new market opportunity emerging, says Roth Capital

Roth Capital analyst Richard Baldry notes that LivePerson (LPSN) has announced support for a new Google (GOOGL; GOOG) AdWords technology extension that enables consumers to message companies directly from "pay-per-click" ads, which he views as a positive incremental growth opportunity. Given this is a dominant form of mass-market digital advertising, the analyst believes this should open up new growth opportunities in 2017 as recognition of its availability grows. Baldry reiterates a Buy rating and $10 price target on LivePerson's shares.

LivePerson downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Richard Baldry downgraded LivePerson to Neutral saying the company's decision to rapidly migrate its mid-market and enterprise customers onto its new LiveEngage platform is coming at the cost of increased near-term churn. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $5 from $14.

Buy
LivePerson upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Richard Baldry upgraded LivePerson to Buy from Neutral as he believes resumed sequential growth should support an improving valuation, despite year over year comparisons remaining challenged throughout 2016. The sequential revenue declines of Q4 and Q1 should give way to a return to sequential revenue growth in Q2 now that the company's customer migration-driven churn appears to have peaked, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Baldry raised his price target on the shares to $10 from $5.

Citi says Salesforce buying Twitter 'nearly impossible' above $28/share
Citi analyst Walter Pritchard believes a Salesforce (CRM) acquisition of Twitter (TWTR) is possible financially but that such a deal would put "significant constraints" on the company for the next three-plus years. The analyst sees "very little reason" for Salesforce to own Twitter and feels the acquisition "would pose a difficult decision" for CEO Marc Benioff and the board. Salesforce closed yesterday down 6%, or $4.21, to $68.42. Recode reported last night that the company is likely the only bidder left for Twitter after Disney (DIS) and Alphabet (GOOG) opted not to pursue a deal while Apple (AAPL) is unlikely. Twitter in pre-market trading is down 14% to $21.50. In order for Salesforce to avoid a shareholder vote, it would have to borrow $7.5B to fund the transaction if Twitter were valued at $20B, or $27.50-$28 per share, Pritchard tells investors in a research note. This is a level that likely constrains the company with little additional borrowing capacity for other deals, the analyst contends. He thinks the deal is "nearly impossible to do" for Salesforce should the bidding for Twitter go above $20B or $28 per share. Pritchard has a Buy rating on Salesforce with an $89 price target.

Alphabet, Facebook can meet Street estimates, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that investors are concerned about the ability of Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG,GOOGL) to meet Street estimates because forecasts continue to indicate that TV's ad share will be relatively stable over the next two years. But Wells says that Facebook and Google will continue to gain share from "non-TV media" and could see increased revenue from "non-advertising marketing services" such as sponsorships and public relations. Wells keeps Outperform ratings on both stocks.

Wells doesn't see Apple as biggest beneficiary from Samsung issues
Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um attributes the recent rally in shares of Apple (AAPL), at least in part, to Samsung's (SSNLF) issues with its Note 7 phones. Apple gained an incremental $14B in market capitalization at its intraday peak, which the analyst believes embeds more than 3M of incremental iPhone 7 Plus units. Samsung's production halt will help Apple, but other Android vendors with 5.7 inch phones could see a bigger benefit if Android users prefer to stick with Android, Um tells investors in a research note. He points out that LG, Kyocera, and Microsoft (MFST) have 5.7 inch Android phones at U.S. carriers. Um thinks expectations for Apple into earnings "have risen materially." He keeps a Market Perform rating on the iPhone maker. Apple closed yesterday up 25c to $116.30.

JPMorgan tweaks Alibaba, Netflix targets lower ahead of Q3 results
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth lowered his price target for Alibaba (BABA) to $134 from $135 and his target for Netflix (NFLX) to $122 from $125 ahead of the Q3 reporting season. Both stocks remain Overweight rated. The analyst slightly lowered his estimates for Alibaba to reflect tougher inventory comps and increased investment spending. He remains positive on the company's overall monetization trends. On Netflix, Anmuth tweaked his 2017 average selling price forecast lower while increasing his investment spend estimate modestly. Within the Internet space, the analyst's top large-cap picks into the quarter are Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Amazon.com (AMZN). Among small-caps, his top picks into earnings are Yelp (YELP), Pandora (P) and Match Group (MTCH).
