Amazon ramps up hiring in China to compete with Alibaba, SCMP reports

Amazon (AMZN) is hiring hundreds of employees in China for roles ranging from internet software engineers to Alexa designers as it seeks to regain market share lost to Alibaba Group (BABA), the South China Morning Post reports, citing job posting. The company lists roughly 400 Chinese-based job openings on its career website and over 900 on Linkedin, which include openings for senior executives for content, a manager to expand its Lending program, a head for its storefront on Alibaba's Tmall and a hardware engineer for Alexa.

Fast food restaurants more insulated from Amazon effects, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital says that fast food companies "are likely more insulated" from Amazon (AMZN) than other types of restaurants "due to their convenience-based usage occasions, low price points, and insulation from deflationary pressures." The firm identifies Wendy's (WEN) and McDonald's (MCD) as its favorite names in the fast food space.

Consumer survey shows most individuals shop on Amazon, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ike Boruchow notes that ComScore online traffic data showed that 62% of all U.S. internet users visited Amazon.com during Q2, but the percentage of U.S. web users that visited Amazon declined 100bps. Nonetheless, the analyst says that per-visit and per-visitor metrics appear to be accelerating, meaning that even if the number of Amazon users is stabilizing, Amazon appears to be taking a greater share of time and wallet for each customer. His quarterly Amazon consumer survey shows that most individuals shop on Amazon, but that it still accounts for a somewhat small portion of total purchases. Lastly, Boruchow also argued that wholesalers seem to be generally aiming to take part in the web giant's growth, particularly as Amazon has made fashion/apparel more of a focus.

Augmented Reality the next 'killer app' to power Apple, says Morgan Stanley
A team of Morgan Stanley analysts including Katy Huberty, Brian Nowak and Grace Chen, among others, state in a new note to investors that they view Augmented Reality, or AR, as a revolutionary trend that can be "the next killer app" to extend the life of the smartphone market and accelerate device upgrades, led by Apple's (AAPL) iPhone. The analysts, who compare the impact of AR to the launch of Apple's App Store nearly a decade ago, add that they "don't expect the Android ecosystem to stand still in response." Huberty and the team raised the firm's "bull case" valuation of Apple, which they see taking the lead in AR, to $253 from $203. While they see Apple as "the clear leader" in AR, Google (GOOG) and Tencent (TCEHY) are also well-positioned and "interesting use cases" in e-commerce could benefit Alibaba (BABA) and Amazon (AMZN), they add.

MKM ups Altaba price target to $76 on higher Alibaba outlook
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price target for Altaba (AABA) shares to $76 from $62 to reflect a higher outlook for the value of the company's Alibaba (BABA) stake. His new sum-of-the-parts valuation embeds a 12-month price target for Alibaba of $220, current value for other assets and the full 40% tax liability. The pretax value of Altaba's assets is now $95 per share, Sanderson tells investors in a research note. He sees tax efficiencies on the stake, upside in the value of Yahoo Japan (YAHOY) and sale of patents in excess of fair value as potential upside scenarios for Altaba. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Altaba closed yesterday down 8c to $64.08.

JPMorgan analyst Alex Yao lowered his price target for Alibaba Group Holding to $200 saying he expects the company's s FY18 non-GAAP EBITDA margin to decline to 43% from 47% in FY17 due to investments across B2C promotions, New Retail and video content. The analyst sees a "mixed outlook" for return on investment, but believes the investments "pave the way for long-term sustainable earnings growth." Yao keeps an Overweight rating on Alibaba.

Alibaba price target lowered to $199 from $208 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Alan Hellawell lowered his price target for Alibaba shares to $199 after recalibrating his estimates to reflect higher investment for the rest of fiscal year 2018. The analyst reduced his profit estimates to reflect Alibaba's intention to grow B2C market share and rising video spend. Hellawell maintains his FY18 revenue growth estimate of 48.5% on "continuously improving ad personalization and other data analytics tools increasing merchant ROI." The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Alibaba.
