Oracle to pay over $850M for Moat, Recode says

Oracle (ORCL) is acquiring digital ad tracker Moat for more than $850M, Recode reports, citing a person familiar with the deal. When the deal closes, Moat will operate as an independent unit offered as part of Oracle's "data cloud" suite of products. Both Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) allow Moat to check in on advertisements that run on their platforms and "Google's YouTube recently announced that it would work with Moat to help advertisers verify that their messages aren't running next to offensive videos," according to Recode.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Oracle (ORCL) was upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at JMP Securities and to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. 2. GoPro (GPRO) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Stanley Kovler saying the recent stabilization in revenue as well as the company's "significant" restructuring initiatives accelerate its path to profitability to 2017 from 2019. These developments should, at the very least, stave off the bear scenario for a few quarters, Kovler tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for GoPro shares to $9 from $8. 2. TJX (TJX) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Matthew Fassler saying the company offers long-term secular growth along with near-term catalysts. The analyst expects TJX to grow market share at the expense of department stores. 4. Inovio (INO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Maxim with analyst Jason McCarthy saying it has multiple earlier stage programs moving forward with more significant data points coming in 2017 while it moves closer to its pivotal study in cervical dysplasia. He notes that his model assumes that VGX-3100 is commercialized in 2021 for cervical dysplasia. 5. Quest Diagnostics (DGX) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill.

Accenture unlikely to be bought by Oracle, says Baird
Baird said reports that Oracle (ORCL) may purchase Accenture (ACN) is unlikely given Accenture is known for being software agnostic and its a people based business. The firm's analyst views Accenture risk/reward as balanced but said 2H 2017 is improving as comps ease and cyclical end markets do better.

Wedbush does not see Oracle moving forward with Accenture
Wedbush analyst Steve Koenig says he's skeptical that The Register's report of Oracle (ORCL) performing due diligence on a potential acquisition of Accenture (ACN) will progress very far. Look beyond Accenture for potential acquisition targets, Koenig tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks more interesting targets lie elsewhere, including vendors such as health care specialists athenahealth (ATHN) and Veeva Systems (VEEV). He reiterates a Neutral rating on Oracle with a $43 price target.

After surveying 1,000 internet users in the U.S. aged 18-45 who use both Facebook (FB) and Snap's (SNAP) Snapchat, Jefferies analyst Brian Fitzgerald believes there could be upside to Snap's Q1 results. The survey found that both Instagram and Snapchat are seeing continued user growth, with Snapchat usage growing fastest among the older demographic, Fitzgerald tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes Snap's recent improvements to targeting and the increase gamified ad formats will help drive average revenue per user growth over time. Fitzgerald keeps a Buy rating on Snap with a $30 price target. The stock closed Thursday down 1c to $20.19.

Facebook overall trends remain 'very strong,' says MScience
MScience analyst Steven Weinstein is forecasting Facebook's North American revenues of 4.07B, down slightly from $4.08B, above consensus of $4.005B. The analyst said slowing increases in US spending per advertiser led to a modest deceleration in revenue growth, but these trends are reflected in management's comments regarding ad load leveling off. Weinstein views overall trends as "very strong."

Yelp upgraded to Overweight on 'underappreciated core' at Pacific Crest
As previously reported, Pacific Crest analyst Brad Erickson upgraded Yelp (YELP) to Overweight from Sector Weight, saying his checks with local ad customers indicate Yelp's core franchise is healthy and appears insulated from larger competitors like Google (GOOG) and Facebook (FB). Over $60B of offline local ad spending is shifting toward online and Yelp remains well-positioned to capitalize on this trend, though its core business is underappreciated in the shares' current value, said Erickson, who has a $43 price target on the stock.

Credit Suisse remains bullish on Alphabet ahead of Q1 results
Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju notes that Alphabet's shares have underperformed relative to its Internet large cap peers in 2016 and 2017 year to date. Nonetheless, he points out that even as the sheer size of its search business continues to blunt the contributions from other businesses, YouTube, Play, and Cloud collectively should be contributing about 1/3 of Net Revenue within three years. Further, the analyst anticipates free cash flow to grow at about 17.5% CAGR over the next five years, and therefore argues that Alphabet Class A shares should trade higher. Ju reiterates an Outperform rating and $1100 price target on the shares.

Criteo price target raised to $60 from $55 at Cowen
Cowen analyst Thomas Champion raised his price target on Criteo (CRTO) to $60 from $55 as he believes the company is well positioned in the near term given recent AdTech moves by Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOG). He sees header bidding adoption as opening more inventory and sees the long-term potential for more competition. Champion raised his estimates to account for the seasonal impact in revenues versus more linear growth in expenses while reiterating his Outperform rating on Criteo shares.
