Icahn negative on automotive replacement retailers

AutoZone price target raised to $900 from $864 at Stephens
Stephens analyst Ben Bienvenu raised his price target for AutoZone to $900 from $864 following quarterly results. While a lagging effect from the warm winter slightly weighed on Q1 results, the analyst is encouraged by the company's ability to leverage expenses in a tough sales environment. Further, he still believes that AutoZone's investments in its distribution network and parts availability will unlock long-term growth and better position the company to outperform as comps ease after Q2. Bienvenu reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Sentiment of Amazon (AMZN) risk has become a "consensus thesis for bears" and will help push AutoZone higher if comps accelerate to 3% in two quarters, Horvers tells investors in a research note.

Citi replaces Amazon with Alphabet as top U.S. Internet pick
Citi analyst Mark May replaced Amazon.com (AMZN) with Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG) as his top stock pick in the U.S. Internet space. Recent channel checks suggest Alphabet's core search growth may not slow as much as most are forecasting, which could drive upside to Q4 and 2017 estimates, May tells investors in a research note. He believes Pixel handset sales could also drive revenue upside. Facebook (FB) is May's second pick in the sector with Amazon moving to third.

Google Home Service Ads expansion could increase sector risk, says Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Darren Aftahi says that, according to 949Local, Google (GOOGL; GOOG) has plans to expand its Home Services Ads to Los Angeles and then nationwide by the end of 2017. The analyst believes Google's move, along with recent announcements by Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN) further validates the space, but also increases competitive risk to Angie's List (ANGI) and Yelp (YELP).

Cowen names Amazon as a best idea for 2017
Cowen analyst John Blackledge named Amazon as one of the firm's "Best Ideas For 2017" as the company continues to take share in "non-core" retail markets. Apparel, consumables, and grocery represent about a $1.5T addressable market in the U.S. alone, and with only about 3% share in those markets Amazon has "a lot of runway ahead," Blackledge tells investors. The company also has a large international opportunity while AWS is well positioned to benefit from the continued migration to the cloud, said Blackledge, who keeps an Outperform rating and $1,050 price target on Amazon shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Fortinet (FTNT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Melissa Gorham saying she is more constructive on Fortinet heading into fiscal 2017 given the stable demand environment, free cash flow generation, easier comps, and more durable renewals. 2. Advance Auto Parts (AAP) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James and to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna following the company's quarterly report. 3. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at CLSA while the firm also upgraded EOG Resources (EOG) to Outperform from Underperform. 4. Harley-Davidson (HOG) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Joseph Spak saying that risks to the company's growth have dissipated, partly due to the potential of President-elect Trump's policies to spark increased consumer spending. 5. Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying investors should be attracted to Cheesecake by its dividend hikes, share repurchases, and ability to open new stores while generating consistent comparable sales growth.
