Verizon making 'marginal' progress toward ad industry goals, BI says

Two years after Verizon (VZ) acquired AOL for $4.4B, people in the ad industry believe that the promise of combining AOLs' audience and ad tech with Verizon's consumer data has yet to be realized, Business Insider reports. Verizon's proposed takeover of Yahoo (YHOO) may add another layer to the complexity, as the carrier aims to become a "third giant" in the online advertising sector, behind Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG), the report says. Verizon is taking many steps to reach that point, but "progress is slow" for now, the report says. "They have made some marginal progress but are nowhere near integrating the disparate data sets or unlocking the vision of integrating their content and people inside Oath," one ad buyer told Business Insider, referring to the name Verizon intends to use for all its media assets following the Yahoo takeover.

Finisar line card still not qualified at Verizon, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst James Kisner says he's a buyer of Finisar (FNSR) ahead of the company's Q4 results after his channel checks suggested "very strong demand" for Datacom optics. His checks, however, also indicated that Finisar still isn't qualified at Verizon (VZ) for its ROADM line card. The analyst lowered his July quarter earnings per share estimate to 52c, below the consensus of 59c, to reflect "clear public datapoints" suggesting no recovery of China near-term and no benefits in the quarter from ROADM at Verizon. Nonetheless, Kisner believes Finisar's guidance could be better than feared and he sees low expectations into the print. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Finisar with a $34 price target.

AT&T likely to lose share, says Drexel Hamilton

Verizon shares could rise to $51 but outlook still mixed, says BTIG
BTIg analyst Walter Piecyk believes that Verizon's (VZ) stock can rise to $51. He notes that the company's wireless "margins and churn are still near record levels," while Sprint's (S) CEO expects prices for unlimited data plans to rise. Additionally, the analyst believes that the chances of Verizon making "a large dilutive acquisition" have decreased, while Verizon would benefit from a merger of Sprint and T-Mobile (TMUS). However, the analyst lowered his estimates for Verizon ,and he thinks that the company's dividend could be at risk over the longer term. Moreover, he warns that the stock could come under pressure if the T-Mobile/Sprint merger falls through, while a new , "well-funded" competitor could enter the wireless space. He keeps a Neutral rating on Verizon.

Verizon responding to wireless competition, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan expects Verizon's (VZ) equipment revenue in Q4 to be strong, linked to the release of the new iconic Apple (AAPL) iPhone 8. The analyst believes wireless competition will remain elevated, but Verizon is responding, and will remained focused on network quality. Further, Horan says Verizon is integrating Yahoo (YHOO)/AOL to deliver growth from programmatic ads/digital content, but this will take some time. He reiterates a Perform rating on Verizon's shares.

Piper sees Facebook revenue tripling by 2022
Piper Jaffray analyst Samuel Kemp believes the evolution of Instagram's ad units as well as Messenger's potential to "disrupt the in-house and outsourced customer care industry" could triple Facebook's revenue by 2022. The analyst expects Instagram revenue will increase from $2B in 2016 to $22B by 2021. More near-term, however, the analyst believes the stock could be range-bound. Investor expectations have fully baked in the likely upside to second half of 2017 advertising revenue, Kemp tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweight rating on Facebook with a $165 price target. The stock closed yesterday up $1.59 to $154.71.

Snap download trends deteriorated thus far in Q2, says Nomura Instinet
An analysis of app download data from SensorTower points to year-over-year deterioration in Snapchat download trends through the first two months of Q2, Nomura Instinet analyst Anthony DiClemente tells investors in an intraday research note titled "Snap Back Unlikely in 2Q." He points out that Facebook's (FB) Instagram downloads grew year-over-year in Q2, which the analyst believes suggests competitive pressures may be intensifying for Snap. For April and May, SensorTower has Snap worldwide downloads down 22%. DiClemente keeps a Reduce rating on the shares with a $14 price target. He lowered his 2017 earnings per share estimate for SNAP to ($3.24) from ($2.68) and revenue estimate to $842M from $953M. These estimates are well below the consensus. Snap in midday trading is down 73c to $19.63.

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.

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