Google issuing refunds over ads on sites with fake traffic, WSJ says

Alphabet's Google is giving refunds to advertisers for ads purchased through its platform that ran on sites with fake traffic, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the situation. The company is currently working on a tool to provide buyers with more transparency about their purchases, the report notes. In the past few weeks, Google has told hundreds of marketers and ad agency partners about the issue with fake traffic, the report says. The refunds amount to just a fraction of the total ad spending served to invalid traffic, which has left some ad execs unsatisfied, the report notes. Reference Link

Facebook at top of investors preferences in consumer internet sector, says Credit Suisse
According to conversations he had over the last few weeks, Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju says not much has changed in positioning around long-term investment theses, with earnings results driving the willingness to upside/downsize. Hence investors' most favored list has shifted to number 1 Facebook (FB), number 2 Amazon (AMZN), and number 3 Google (GOOG; GOOGL), he said. Away from the large caps, the analyst notes that MercadoLibre (MELI) as well as the videogame stocks remain popular topics for discussion, with increasing activity in Take-Two (TTWO) relative to Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Electronic Arts (EA).

Jefferies cuts Twitter with Google, Facebook and Snap preferred in social video
As previously reported, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Hold from Buy in a note to investors after the market close yesterday, stating that he prefers Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Snap (SNAP) as plays on the digital video transition occurring across the social media space. Thill, who thinks Twitter will underperform broader internet and social peers, acknowledged that investors might ask why he is not advising to sell the stock, but he thinks recent management changes could improve the company's declining ARPU in the near-term. Thill lowered his price target on Twitter shares to $16 from $20.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Brent Hill, who prefers Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Snap (SNAP) as plays on the digital video transition occurring across the social media space. Thill, who thinks Twitter will underperform broader internet and social peers, acknowledged that investors might ask why he is not advising to sell the stock, but he thinks recent management changes could improve the company's declining ARPU in the near-term. 2. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital by analyst Shannon Coyne, who said that there are bright spots ahead for the company, but sees "clouds on the horizon" looking ahead, including a slowing beauty market and department stores that are "upping their collective game." 3. Hormel Foods (HRL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse by analyst Robert Moskow, who said increased volatility in the protein markets has reduced earnings visibility and his confidence in FY2020 margin targets of 15-19%. Moskow sees further risk from the pork industry's 10% expansion in slaughter capacity. 4. TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Shutterstock (SSTK) downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Jefferies. 5. Domino's Pizza (DPZ) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus by analyst John Staszak due to concerns about slowing international revenue combined with a potential for a comparable slowdown in domestic sales. The analyst now expects Domino's to post mid-single-digit comp growth following years of double-digit growth and believes margin gains will be limited going forward as the company invests in the business.
