Apple price target raised to $175 from $160 at Argus
Argus analyst Jim Kelleher increased his price target on Apple after the company annoucned new products and product enhancements. The analyst quotes Apple bears as saying that the company is "playing catch-up" by introducing similar products to those that its rivals have already launched. However, Kelleher says that, "coming late to the party did not hurt iPhone's leadership in smartphones." He keeps a Buy rating on the shares. .

Analog Devices weakness will be short lived, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani notes that Analog Devices (ADI) "has underperformed rather notably" since its Q2 results on May 31. The analyst blames the weakness on the company's reduced revenue from Apple (AAPL). However, he thinks that investors will begin focusing more on the company's multiple tailwinds, possibly starting in the wake of its June 20 Analyst Day. Consequently, he expects the stock to rise from current levels and keeps a $92 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.

Criteo stock reaction after Apple developer conference overdone, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Thomas Champion noted Criteo (CRTO) shares were under pressure following comments from the Apple (AAPL) developer conference yesterday, but he believes exposure to the desktop Safari browser seems limited, which will mitigate risk to revenue, suggesting the stock reaction is overdone. Champion reiterated his Outperform rating on Criteo shares.

The iPhone maker fell along with the Nasdaq index late in Friday's trade to close down 4%, or $6.01, to $148.98.

The analyst sees limited upside to consensus estimates and notes Apple shares are trading near the upper-end of their recent valuation range.

After attending Microsoft's Analyst Day, BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman says that Microsoft's " tone and confidence on competencies, culture, products, and opportunities were very bullish." The analyst says that some of the company's comments indicate that its fiscal 2018 results could miss expectations, but he's more upbeat on the company's longer term outlook and thinks that its operating income will increase around 5% in fiscal 2018, enabling the stock's multiple to rise. He keeps a $75 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.

Nutanix pact with IBM potentially more powerful than Dell deal, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi said he views Nutanix' (NTNX) announcement of a multi-year initiative that will combine IBM's (IBM) P-series servers and Nutanix' Enterprise Cloud Platform as a "very significant mid-term positive." He believes the partnership gives IBM a powerful infrastructure software answer to VMware (VMW) and Microsoft (MSFT) and sees the relationship with the potential to be even more powerful than the Dell relationship that powered Nutanix' improving FY16 sales productivity and cash flow. Chokshi keeps a Buy rating on Nutanix but trimmed his price target to $41 from $42 to account for Dell siphoning Nutanix leads to VMware, as previously discussed.

Amazon may be the next threat to drug pricing, says Wells Fargo
After CNBC recently reported that Amazon (AMZN) is considering going into the prescription pharmacy business in the U.S., Wells Fargo surveyed nearly 2,900 U.S. adults and found that 54% of those polled said they would use or would probably use "Amazon Pharmacy." While the e-commerce giant has not confirmed its U.S. pharmacy interest, if it did enter the market analyst David Maris believes it could see fast adoption and "usher in a new age of price transparency." Maris also wonders if pharmacy "may be just the beginning" and if Amazon eyes the "even larger prize" of fully integrated digital healthcare. Publicly traded large-cap pharmaceuticals companies include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY). Publicly traded retail pharmacy operators include CVS Health (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), Fred's (FRED) and Rite Aid (RAD).

Maxim sees ten $1T categories open to Amazon, ups target to $1,300
Maxim analyst Tom Forte said that as consumers increasingly interact with Amazon in physical locations, "Amazon.com will become simply Amazon." Forte analyzed 18 market opportunities, including 14 that Amazon is already pursuing and four - credit, gas stations, pharmacy, and travel - that are new, and among them identified ten categories where the global total addressable market exceeds $1T. Given Amazon's opportunity to drive incremental sales growth and "further disrupt the retail sector," Forte raised his price target on the stock to $1,300 from $1,075 and keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson continues to believe that Amazon.com is the best positioned large cap internet platform for the next five-plus years. He raised his price target for the shares to $1,200 from $1,050 and reiterates an Overweight rating on the name. The stock closed Friday down $31.96, or 3%, to $978.31. An analysis of Google search trends indicates Amazon retail unit growth will likely see little to no deceleration in Q2 relative to the 24% growth experienced in Q1, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes Amazon retail is tracking for an in-line quarter. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Ahead of the company's upcoming Q1 report, which is due on May 18, Kim raised his price target on Salesforce shares to $110 from $100 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

IBM defended after CNBC report at Stifel
After CNBC reported that Facebook's (FB) WhatsApp had decided to stop using IBM's (IBM) cloud service and build its own solution, Stifel analyst David Grossman says that WhatsApp accounted for a tiny portion of IBM's cloud/outsourcing revenue. The analyst reiterated that bookings disclosed by IBM so far this quarter increase his confidence that its Infrastructure Services business "can stabilize in 2H17, all else being equal." He notes that the business accounts for about 30% of the company's revenue. Devitt keeps a $182 price target and Buy rating on the stock.

Alphabet's Waymo an emerging competitor to Tesla, says Morgan Stanley

Jonas keeps an Equal Weight rating and $305 price target on Tesla shares.

Tesla seen more widely as 'more than a car company,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas said he believes the market is increasingly viewing Tesla (TSLA) as "more than a car company," giving it a low chance of success of disrupting a $10T global market for mobility rather than a high chance of success in the smaller traditional light vehicle market. There is "little doubt that Tesla has a seat at the table" for any conversation about machine learning and the multi-trillion-dollar transport market alongside Amazon (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), and Apple (AAPL), though its market cap is only a fraction of theirs, Jonas tells investors. The analyst, who added that the firm is getting a "surprisingly high level of pushback" on its prior work on Google's self-driving Waymo unit - with some saying they undervalued Waymo and others saying they undervalued Tesla's shared/autonomous mobility efforts - keeps an Equal Weight rating and $305 price target on Tesla shares.

Criteo selloff on Apple iOS update overdone, says JPMorgan
Criteo (CRTO) dropped 7% yesterday after Apple (AAPL) announced that it will limit ad tracking on desktop browsers with the iOS 11 update, JPMorgan Doug Anmuth tells investors in a research note. The news follows Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) recent announcement that Chrome will stop showing ads on sites that do not meet its ad criteria beginning in 2018, the analyst adds. Anmuth does not expect much financial impact to Criteo from either change in the near term. He believes both Apple and Google will ultimately leave ads up to the end user to manage. The analyst views yesterday's selloff in Criteo shares as overdone and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.
