LivePerson price target raised to $15 from $10 at Roth Capital

Roth Capital analyst Richard Baldry noted that LivePerson (LPSN) has announced partnering efforts around corporate messaging with both Apple (AAPL) and IBM (IBM) in the past week, which he points to as evidence that the enterprise messaging sector appears to be gaining momentum and mainstream acceptance. Baldry, who believes momentum in LivePerson's messaging segment is likely to accelerate in 2H17, raised his price target on the stock to $15 from $10 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

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.

Jabil Circuit price target raised to $35 from $30 at UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich raised his price target on Jabil Circuit (JBL) to $35 from $30 following solid Q3 results and its positive 2018 outlook. The analyst said the company still has a 24% revenue dependence on Apple (AAPL). Based on its guidance for 2018, it must have reasonable confidence in the iPhone 8 cycle, said Milunovich, who reiterated his Buy rating on Jabil shares.

Citi on Apple buying athenahealth? 'Never say never'
After CNBC reported that Apple (AAPL) is working on making the iPhone into a centralized management of patient health data, Citi analyst Garen Sarafian says athenahealth (ATHN) is a "well-suited candidate" to help. In a research note titled "Apple For athenahealth? Never Say Never," the analyst argues that athenahealth would accelerate Apple's efforts for interoperability. He believes Apple "would be one of few homes" that CEO Jonathan Bush would consider. Sarafian has a Buy rating on athenahealth with a $163 price target. The digital provider of medical records is down 42c to $142.34 in midday trading.

Recent Apple pullback largely due to overall tech weakness, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty believes the recent pullback in Apple shares, which are down 7% in the last week, is largely a result of overall weakness in the tech sector and not a change in investor sentiment towards the stock. She notes that Apple shares have risen an average of 18% in the 3 months prior to iPhone announcements over the last ten years, which she believes suggests the recent weakness creates an attractive opportunity to buy the stock. Huberyty keeps an Overweight rating and $177 price target on Apple.

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.

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.
