Snap Q2 results disappointing, says UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan called Snap's Q2 results disappointing. The analyst reduced his estimates but he still sees the company as a social media and messaging platform that has the potential for success as an advertising business. Sheridan, who expects the shares to remain volatile, maintained his Neutral rating on Snap shares and lowered his price target to $12 from $19.

Snap mix shift contributed to Q2 revenue miss, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Scott W. Devitt says "a primary driver" of Snap's Q2 revenue miss "was its ad buying mix shifting significantly to the recently launched API / self-serve platforms." He says the change "pressured" the company's ad prices, but he thinks it will "broaden" advertiser demand "over time." Devitt trimmed his price target on the name to $18 from $22 but keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Lumentum price target raised to $68 from $58 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen raised his price target for Lumentum (LITE) to $68 saying a surge in orders for 3D Sensing VCSELs offset weaker than expected core optics in the June quarter. Jensen believes, based on conversations with industry contacts, that Lumentum captured 75%-100% of initial shipments of both the high and low-power VCSEL into Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 8. The 3D sensing market is a "significant earnings enhancement opportunity" for Lumentum, Jensen writes in a post-earnings research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

As previously reported, Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang raised the firm's price target on Lumentum to $70 from $66 after the company confirmed its receipt of a $200M 3D sensing order for calendar 2017, believed to be from Apple (AAPL). This order was better than the firm's expectations and the consensus view, said Zhang, who keeps a Buy rating on Lumentum shares.

CEVA could be pressured by latest in Qualcomm-Apple fight, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Gary Mobley noted that Qualcomm (QCOM) announced that the ITC has commenced an investigation into Apple's (AAPL) use of certain mobile devices, radio frequency and processing components" as the companies continue their legal fight over disputed royalties. Intel (INTC) and Qualcomm currently split the iPhone 7 thin modem business and it is expected they'll also evenly split the iPhone 8 business, said Mobley, who noted that CEVA (CEVA) could lose $2M-$2.5M in annual royalties if the Intel-based phones are banned for U.S. import. He keeps a Buy rating on CEVA shares, which are down fractionally in early trading.

Nvidia shares should be bought on weakness, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Stein says that Nvidia significantly beat Q2 expectations even excluding its cryptocurrency business, and he thinks the cryptocurrency business will be sustainable. Stein adds that analysts keep anticipating that the company's revenue growth will slow, but he says their estimate of when this will occur keeps getting delayed. He recommends buying the stock on weakness.

Nvidia pullback presents 'compelling' entry point, says Loop Capital
With Nvidia shares "priced for perfection" into its Q2 report, Loop Capital analyst Betsy Van Hees attributes the post-earnings pullback in the stock to the company's "modest" 2% sequential growth in data center and the guidance for a large sequential step-up in operating expenses. However, she thinks investors' concerns that data center growth has topped out are unwarranted, noting that the quarter featured a transition to Volta, which is now ramped. The analyst, who also contends that Nvidia must continue to spend to maintain its leadership position, raised her price target on the stock to $181 from $137, keeps a Buy rating and view the pullback as a "compelling" entry point to the stock.

Roth says Nvidia 'stands alone' in semiconductors, valuation 'only question'
Roth Capital analyst Brian Alger said Nvidia's (NVDA) performance over the past several quarters has made it clear that neither Intel (INTC) nor AMD (AMD) have been able to slow the company's growth. Nvidia "stands alone" among semiconductor companies in terms of big volume and big dollar growth potential, but valuation of its stock remains the "only question," according to Alger. He raised his FY19 revenue estimate by roughly $1B and increased his price target on Nvidia shares to $150 from $120, but maintains a Neutral rating on the stock.

The analyst remains encouraged by fee income resiliency, favorable credit trends, strong capital build, and compelling risk/reward, and reiterates his Buy rating and $27 price target.

Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.
