Ctrip.com should report 'solid' Q1 results, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Fawne Jiang expects Ctrip.com to report "solid" Q1 results, supported by healthy air growth and robust travel demand. The analyst, who also thinks Ctrip's Q2 growth will benefit from increasing market share gains and a China consumption improvement tailwind, keeps a Buy rating and $60 price target on the stock ahead of its report on May 10.

Ctrip.com price target raised to $65 from $60 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jed Kelly raised his price target for Ctrip.com to $65 from $60 following a "solid" Q1 where non-GAAP operating margins improved on higher customer-service efficiencies and scaling of tech platform. The analyst sees upside to his profitability estimates if management can drive improving advertising efficacy in a dissipating competitive environment, and believes Ctrip.com is a leading option to participate in China's consumption economy transition. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Competing Whole Foods bid of $50 or higher 'not unrealistic,' says Barclays
Barclays analyst Karen Short said a potential strategic bidders for Whole Foods (WFM) can "rationally outbid" Amazon (AMZN) based on the roughly $750M in synergies she estimates for a buyer such as Kroger (KR) or Wal-Mart (WMT). For Kroger, she estimates that a 100% debt-financed bid at $50 could be about 6% accretive, and a Whole Foods bid up to $60 would still be accretive. For Wal-Mart, a 100% debt-financed bid at $50 could be about 2% accretive, though a could still be accretive bid up to $70 per share, she tells investors. Whole Foods was not "shopped," based on public documents, and the math indicates a superior, competing bid is "feasible," said Short, who also notes that Amazon could then outbid any other offer. Short has an Overweight rating and $48 price target on Whole Foods shares.

Pivotal Research analyst Ajay Jain downgraded SpartanNash (SPTN) to Sell and cut his price target for the shares to $20 from $35. Setbacks at the company's Military Distribution Segment suggest revenue trends for the military commissary business are unlikely to stabilize soon, Jain tells investors in a research note. He believes the stock's valuation premium to Kroger (KR) and Supervalu (SVU) is not warranted.

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.

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.

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.

Mehrotra this morning also downgraded Old Dominion (ODFL) and Landstar System (LSTR) to Hold. He lowered his price target for Norfolk Southern shares to $104 from $132. CSX (CSX) is now his only Buy-rated rail.

He believes Norfolk Southern will show additional market share gains in Q3 and increase its earnings over that time. Seidl has an Outperform rating and $130 price target on Norfolk Southern shares.

CSX, Union Pacific likely to rebound in near-term, says Stifel
Stifel analyst John Larkin expects the shares of CSX (CSX) and Union Pacific (UNP) to rebound in the near-term. He says that disappointment over CSX's Q2 results was driven by overly high expectations following the hiring of its new CEO. Referring to the new CEO, Larkin says that he "may be a railroading and costsaving God-send but miracles can take some time." The analyst believes that the decline in Union Pacific's shares was caused by "overly negative sentiment." He is upbeat on the stocks due to "positive 3Q carload volumes and a potential for more positive dialogue on the space in the coming weeks." But he keeps Hold ratings on both names.
