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.

Google remediation plan could help frame risk in shopping, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo notes that Google has submitted a plan to comply with the EU's shopping search decision ahead of a September 28 deadline. While Google's revenue exposure here is likely modest, it could face EU regulatory scrutiny in additional verticals, the firm added. Wells Fargo believes EU requirements for ''equal treatment'' of competitors remain vague, and Google's remediation plan could help frame the risk in shopping and other verticals.

Deal for HTC handsets would be immaterial to Alphabet financials, says UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan commented on the media report Alphabet is in the final stages of negotiating the purchase of the smartphone business of HTC. The analyst feels the financial implications are immaterial to Alphabet but admitted it opens the debate about the strategic plan of the acquisition. He feels owning and operating its own mobile division would offset some of the key challenges that Google's mobile computing business might face. Sheridan reiterated his Buy rating and $1,080 price on Alphabet shares.

Alphabet well positioned to expand AR platform, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes Alphabet is well positioned to expand its Augmented Reality, or AR, platform, which could lead to a justification of a tie-up with HTC's mobile/R&D assets. The analyst believe Alphabet is in a position to expand and stimulate growth of AR applications and an acquisition of the HTC mobile business will help with that along with protecting its Pixel production supply chain. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $1,100 price target on Alphabet shares.

Aegis sees signs of start of advertising recession
After speaking with Bryan Wiener, the Executive Chairman of online and traditional advertising agency 360i, Aegis analyst Victor Anthony said that his commentary, along with earnings results from ad agencies Interpublic Group (IPG) and WPP (WPPGY), leave him of the opinion that an ad recession is underway. Wiener believes Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN) will be relatively insulated given they will continue to take share, and Anthony said he would continue to buy Alphabet and Facebook shares. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on Snap (SNAP) and a Sell rating on Twitter (TWTR).

Alphabet TAC expense could rise due to EU regulatory action, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark S.F. Mahaney says that the EU could force Google to unbundle Android from its other services, which in turn would increase Alphabet's traffic acquisition costs, or TAC. The analyst says that Alphabet faces the greatest regulatory risk among the large cap Internet stocks. However, he keeps an Outperform rating on the shares, citing what he sees as " sustainable & scarce premium growth, significant option value & reasonable valuation."

Facebook taking long-term view of video opportunity, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Peter Stabler notes that Facebook (FB) is reportedly willing to spend as much as $1B to cultivate original video programming through 2018. The analyst believes that the scale of potential investment and particular investment targets suggest that Facebook is taking a long-term view of the video opportunity and that investments are likely to "significantly outstrip" near-term video monetization. Additionally, the company appears determined to drive Stories adoption in core Facebook to head off the threat of competitive incursion by Snap (SNAP), while expanding the distribution of advertising stories being widely adopted by marketers on Instagram.

Pivotal says Facebook ad reach claims look inflated
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser noted that Australian trade publication AdNews found that Facebook (FB) claims to reach more 16-39 year-olds in the country than exist according to the country's census. His analysis of Facebook Ads Manager data compared to the U.S. consensus reveals a similar outcome. His talks with ad agency executives on this topic indicate that the gap between Facebook and census figures is not widely known, Wieser tells investors. The analyst, who keeps a Sell rating and $140 price target on Facebook, believes the primary winner of the social media giant's video expansion will be third party measurement firms, such as Nielsen (NLSN) and comScore (SCOR), he added.

KeyBanc continues to recommend owning Facebook
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves continues to recommend owning Facebook, and believes Watch has the potential to reach a scale that few online video platforms have, which should draw brand advertisers and drive incremental revenue. While initial revenue is likely to be modest at Facebook's scale, the analyst thinks the service can grow to $5B or more in the medium term and help sustain Facebook's period of superior growth. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $200 price target on the shares.

Wedbush cites Snap's 'hugely unprofitable' history in Neutral initiation report
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter initiated Snap (SNAP) last night with a Neutral rating and $12 price target. The shares closed yesterday down 3c to $14.96. Decelerating growth trends, "fierce" competition for user mindshare and advertiser dollars, and a history of being "hugely unprofitable" justify being on the sidelines with respect to the shares, Pachter tells investors in a research note. He notes his $12 price target reflects a slight premium to Twitter's (TWTR) multiple, since Snap "appears to have a longer runway for continued growth," and a discount to Facebook's (FB) multiple, a company with "superior monetization and growth trends."
