Alphabet develops renewable energy storage system, Bloomberg says

Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) X "moonshot factory" is developing a system to store renewable energy, called Malta, which could be located almost anywhere, have a longer life than lithium-ion batteries, and compete on price with other energy storage methods, Bloomberg reports, citing X executives and researches. Although the initiative is not yet official, it has been "de-risked" to the point where the team is seeking partners to construct, operate and connect a prototype to the grid which may result in partnerships or competition with businesses such as Siemens (SIEGY), ABB (ABB) and General Electric (GE).

Alphabet reported 'solid' Q2 results, says Cantor
Cantor analyst Kip Paulson says that Alphabet reported "solid" Q2 results, as he believes that its earnings "featured....sustained underlying momentum and broad-based global strength." The analyst says that "slightly lower gross margins" due to high TAC will be "offset" by faster revenue growth "over time." Calling the stock's valuation "compelling," he raised his price target on the name to $1,100 from $1,070 and .keeps an Overweight rating. .

Alphabet price target raised to $1,100 from $1,050 at Needham
Needham analyst Kerry Rice raised his price target for Alphabet to $1,100 from $1,050 following the company's Q2 "solid" results. While the analyst expects the light net ad revenue coupled with the recent run-up in share price will likely cause a pullback, he believes this is a buying opportunity as Alphabet's fundamentals remain intact. Rice reiterates a Buy rating on the name.

Baird says buy Alphabet at current levels with shares at discount
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said Alphabet reported solid Q2 results slightly above consensus, consistent with his positive checks. The analyst said the results were driven primarily by healthy core advertising revenues and increasing contributions from YouTube, Google Cloud, and Hardware. He said Alphabet is underperforming peers year-to-date and trading at a discount, so he remains a buyer at current levels. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $1,100 price target on Alphabet shares.

Facebook downgraded to Sell from Hold at Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Facebook (FB) to Sell with an unchanged price target of $140. The social network closed Friday up $2.01 to $172.45. The shares are not factoring in risks to the company's growth following their "remarkable run" this year, Wieser tells investors in a research note. The recent European Commission ruling on Google (GOOG, GOOGL) Shopping and the agency's approach to dominant companies in general poses a greater risk as Facebook becomes larger, the analyst contends.

Citi sees multiple ways for GE to drive shareholder value
General Electric has "significant flexibility" to drive value creation for shareholders under CEO-elect John Flannery, Citi analyst Andrew Kaplowitz tells investors in a research note. While early to speculate on potential actions Flannery will take after assuming the role on August 1, a disciplined approach to operational management and capital allocation could serve as a catalyst, Kaplowitz argues. The analyst believes consistent execution could support a return to GE's historical valuation range. Nonetheless, to reflect slower near-term demand trends in Power and energy headwinds, Kaplowitz lowered his 2018 earnings per share estimate to $1.80 from $1.90 and 2019 estimate to $2.00 from $2.10. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $34 from $36. He keeps a Buy rating on GE. Kaplowitz's sum-of-the-parts analysis suggests a potential valuation for GE in the $32-$34 per share range. The stock closed Friday at $26.15.
