Smartphone war shifting to focus on design, WSJ reports

Ten years after Apple (AAPL) launched the first iPhone, the smartphone war is shifting to how a phone looks as smartphone innovation seems to have plateaued in the eyes of many consumers, according to The Wall Street Journal. Samsung (SSNLF) is turning the tables on Apple with phone quality, Consumer Reports concluded when it ranked the Galaxy S the top smartphone on the market, with design earning praise alongside battery life and camera quality, the report noted.

Apple Watch bigger than any Swiss watch brand other than Rolex, says UBS
UBS analyst Helen Brand noted that the latest data points indicate retail demand for Swiss watches has been accelerating and she expects further cyclical recovery through 2017. In the same note, Brand pointed out that Apple Watch (AAPL) is now bigger than any Swiss watch brand other than Rolex and said Swiss industry market share may be further hurt as smart watches improve in functionality. However, the firm's latest Evidence Lab shows no indication of an incremental pick-up in demand for smart watches compared to last year's survey, she also noted.

Autonomous vehicle deals positive for car rental companies, says MKM Partners
After Avis (CAR) announced a multi-year deal with on autonomous vehicles with Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Waymo and news reports stated that Hertz (HTZ) is working with Apple (AAPL) on autonomous vehicles, MKM Partners analyst Christopher Agnew says the news should ease investors' concerns about car rental companies no longer existing in five to ten years. The analyst believes that car rental companies will become "more relevant" following the launch of autonomous vehicles due to their fleet management skills. He keeps Buy ratings on Hertz and Avis.

Cypress Semiconductor upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis upgraded Cypress Semiconductor (CY) to Overweight to reflect the likely USB-C wins at Apple (AAPL) for the upcoming iPhone 8 cycle. Apple is moving to USB-C connectors for its chargers and including silicon in the iPhones/iPads to enable fast charging, Curtis tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the content win is accretive to Cypress' gross margins and should also help boost fab utilization. He also views the company's core business as strong. Curtis raised his price target for the shares to $18 from $14.

Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves says that Apple's Services revenue will probably decelerate significantly going forward. The analyst says that App Store revenue growth has probably peaked, as App Store revenue per iPhone user looks set to drop. Meanwhile, Apple Music is probably unprofitable and all other services have had a compound annual growth rate of 3% over the last three years, according to Hargreaves. He keeps a $145 price target and a Sector Weight rating on the stock.

STMicroelectronics to benefit from content jump in iPhone 8, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss raised his STMicroelectronics' (STM) March and June quarter estimates to account for content increases in Samsung's (SSNLF) Galaxy S8 and Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 8, coupled with continued strong demand for the Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch and strength in the company's connected car business. The analyst says STMicroelectronics remains one of his top names in 2017 and would be a buyer heading into both the S8 and iPhone 8 launches. He reiterates a Buy rating and $18 price target on STMicroelectronics' shares.

Apple target raised to $177 at Morgan Stanley after survey shows rising loyalty
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty reported that the firm's recent survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers shows a rising iPhone retention rate, with 92% of iPhone owners who see upgrading their phone in the next 12 months saying they plan to stick to an iPhone, up from the 86% retention rate in last year's survey. Apple's (AAPL) 92% loyalty rate "dwarfs" that of all other vendors, with its biggest competitor, Samsung (SSNLF), seeing a 77% retention rate, she noted. Huberty, who sees Apple being positioned to gain increasing U.S. smartphone share, raised her price target on Apple to $177 from $161 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.
