Online trend continues as risk in dental consumables, says Stifel

Stifel analyst Jonathan Block said his survey of 106 dental practices showed that online vendors are gaining traction, and this trend is expected to continue. 39% of respondents currently use an online vendor such as Amazon (AMZN) for 21% of their dental consumables and traction among current users is expected to climb higher while additional practices plan to start using an online vendor, noted Block, who views this trend as a long-term headwind for Patterson Companies (PDCO) and Henry Schein (HSIC). In the Dental space, he keeps a Buy rating on Dentsply Sirona (XRAY), a Hold on Henry Schein, and a Sell on Patterson.

Patterson Companies upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS
UBS analyst Michael Cherny upgraded Patterson Companies (PDCO) to Neutral from Sell, stating that his sell thesis played out more quickly than he anticipated. His call was the risk to out-year estimates as the company worked to transition away from its exclusive Sirona (XRAY) relationship in the U.S. Although he still has concerns over the growth rebound, he feels the risk/reward is more balanced. Cherny has a $40 price target on Patterson Companies shares.

Dentsply Sirona estimaters reduced at Northcoast
Northcoast analyst Ed Snyder's checks indicate Patterson Companies (PDCO) sales of high technology dental equipment is weaker than expected caused by industry competition. Snyder said it appears Patterson's CEREC sales growth is down about 40-50%, despite promotional activity. As a result, he reduced Dentsply Sirona's (XRAY) second half internal growth estimate to 1.4% from 2.3% and earnings FY17 earnings estimate to $2.80 from $2.82. Snyder retains a Buy rating on Dentsply and a $76 price target.

Dental survey indicates Q2 upside for Align, Henry Schein, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Robert Jones said checks indicate Q2 Dental trends remained stable and point to consistent low-single-digit growth end-markets. The analyst likes Align Technology (ALGN) saying Q2 case guidance appears beatable and expects high 20% case growth driven by investments, sees Q2 upside for Henry Schein (HSIC) due to share gains from Patterson Companies (PDCO), and said Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) promotions to drive cross-selling have yet to gain traction and 2017 guidance may be aggressive, but expectations are low into the quarter.

Patterson Companies price target lowered to $41 from $46 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Kevin Ellich lowered his price target for Patterson Companies(PDCO) to $41 from $46 to reflect the soft dental consumable environment and potential market share losses once Henry Schein (HSIC) starts to sell CEREC on September 1. Given the lower valuation and good, stable end markets, the analyst thinks Patterson Companies could be an "interesting target" for a financial buyer as cash flow should start to improve over the next few quarters once the company completes the ERP implementation. He reiterates a Hold rating on Patterson Companies' shares.

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.

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.

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.
