Facebook, Apple troubles in China no longer a surprise, NY Times says

Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft's (MSFT) troubles in China no longer surprise anyone, The New York Times writes, while noting that this summer of challenge for the three companies offers a broad illustration of just how varied the obstacles have become for foreign companies in the country. Just in the past few weeks, Facebook had one of its most popular apps blocked by the Chinese government, Microsoft's LinkedIn had its local boss step down amid tepid results in the country, and Apple announced a billion-dollar investment to comply with local law, the report noted.Reference Link

Facebook consensus forecasts looks overly conservative, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson said anecdotes from ad agencies and partners suggest that strong trends in social media spending and allocation to Facebook have continued, leading him to believes that consensus forecasts for the company's upcoming Q2 report seem overly conservative. Sanderson reiterates a Buy rating and $180 price target on Facebook shares ahead of the Q2 report, which is scheduled for July 26.

Snap still has room to fall, says MoffettNathanson
offettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson said Snap (SNAP) still has room to fall and sees two near-term catalysts that can push shares towards his $11 price target. Nathanson said its a "scary admission" by Snap that disappointing growth is due to seasonality and said its seems like an artful warning to take down estimates for Q3. Further, the analyst believes Snap's lock-up expiration on July 30 could drive a double digit sell-off, if you use Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR) histories as a guide. Nathanson rates Snap a Sell.

Facebook price target raised to $185 from $165 at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin raised her price target for Facebook (FB) to $185 from $165 as user growth has outpaced her estimates and her channel checks indicate more robust advertising revenue growth than she previously projected, owing to more video ads, faster Instagram revenue growth, and lower competition from Snap (SNAP) than she had previously projected. The analyst now believes Facebook is "becoming the de facto near-monopoly mobile choice" for brands and direct response advertisers. Martin reiterates a Buy rating on Facebook's shares.

Facebook Q2 checks positive, innovation to drive results, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Heather Bellini said Facebook Q2 field checks were universally positive, suggesting the pace of innovation is accelerating on both the consumer product and the ad tech stack. The analyst said advertisers are achieving higher returns and expects increased video content from publishers and recent advertising on Messenger to driver higher CPMs, and higher available ad inventory overall, increasing her confidence in sustained revenue growth. Bellini raised CY17 earnings to $4.96, versus consensus of $4.85, and raised CY18 earnings to $5.88, versus consensus of $5.98. The analyst rates Facebook a Buy with a $180 price target.

Qualcomm customers unlikely to take business to Intel, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri said the June quarter for Qualcomm (QCOM) was okay while the September quarter outlook was bad because Samsung (SSNLF) now is withholding full royalties on top of Apple (AAPL). The analyst said there aren't many more levers these customers can pull short of taking their business to Intel (INTC), but he believes that is unlikely given the performance gap. Arcuri believes the risk/reward is still favorable and maintained his Outperform rating and $70 price target on Qualcomm shares.

Skyworks $110 price target very supportable by results, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri noted Skyworks (SWKS) reported solid results as the company continued to execute well amid a soft China smartphone market. The analyst believes the timing of an OLED iPhone launch is already factored into the numbers and he believes his $110 price target is very supportable. However, he feels the Apple (AAPL) and supply chain trade is in the late innings. Arcuri maintained his Market Perform rating on Skyworks shares.

Arcuri maintains his Outperform rating and $160 price target on Apple shares, as he sees the capital returns and Services narrative gaining momentum.

Piper expects 'solid' quarter from Apple on August 1
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson expects Apple on August 1 to report a "solid" quarter, but adds the outlook may be slightly below consensus due to the timing of the next iPhone launch. The setup for shares over the coming months appears favorable, Olson tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The analyst pushed 4M iPhone units from the September to December quarter amid industry chatter suggesting that at least some models will not be available until October, November and December. Olson maintains an Overweight rating on Apple with a $158 price target. The stock in late morning trading is down 62c to $149.72.
