Apple's iPhone X sets new standards for smartphones, DigiTimes says

Apple's (AAPL) newly released iPhone X is likely setting the standards for next-generation smartphones with several new features including 3D sensing, which can enable facial recognition, 3D emojis and perform augmented reality experiences, DigiTimes reports, citing industry sources. Android players, including Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) and Huawei, are likely to follow suit and demand for 3D sensor modules is expected to experience massive growth in 2018-2019, benefiting 3D sensor chips suppliers such as Qualcomm (QCOM) and Himax Technologies (HIMX).

Lack of Band 71 inclusion a near-term negative for T-Mobile, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brandon Nispel says that the lack of inclusion of band 71, or 600 MHz spectrum, in iconic device launches from Samsung (SSNLF) and Apple (AAPL) is a clear negative for T-Mobile (TMUS). T-Mobile spent $8B to purchase this spectrum and will spend more capital going forward to build it out, without having the ability to put it to use for at least another year, he notes. Nispel believes investors are likely to view this as negative, and it could cause some weakness to shares.

Apple fiscal 2018 EPS estimate raised at Maxim
After Apple announced that it would charge $1,000 for its iPhone X, Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi increased his fiscal 2018 EPS estimate for the company to $13+ from $11.75. According to the analyst, the consensus estimate is roughly $11. However, the analyst lowered his fiscal 2018 iPhone unit sales estimate for Greater China by 25% and cut his fiscal 2018 iPhone unit sales estimate outside of Greater China by 8%. He raised his price target on the stock to $182 from $180 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

A.I. 'moving to the edge,' no material impact yet, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Pierre Ferragu notes that Apple has announced the much-leaked iPhone X, 8 and 8 plus, and provided additional details provided about the iPhone X's new chip, the A11. While the chip is confirming that A.I. is moving to the edge with applications heavy on pictures and video, it does not have a material impact on leading edge silicon content yet, he argues. The analyst points out that the A11 counts only 30% more transistors than the A10.

Criteo has workaround to Apple cookie disabler, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves recommends buying Criteo (CRTO) after the company at an event yesterday detailed its Commerce Marketing Platform, which aggregates online and offline data across partners to create a "Shopper Graph." The product has the potential to create new product areas, deepen partnerships and expand Criteo's "moat," Hargreaves tells investors in a research note. The stock has been weak on Apple's (AAPL) upcoming Intelligent Tracking Prevention rollout, which attempts to disable third-party tracking cookies after 24 hours, Hargreaves points out. He sees the issue as transitory, however, noting Criteo has a workaround that he believes will prove effective with direct publisher relationships. The analyst views Criteo's risk/reward as attractive and keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $62 price target.

Apple target raised to $177 at Morgan Stanley after survey shows rising loyalty
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty reported that the firm's recent survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers shows a rising iPhone retention rate, with 92% of iPhone owners who see upgrading their phone in the next 12 months saying they plan to stick to an iPhone, up from the 86% retention rate in last year's survey. Apple's (AAPL) 92% loyalty rate "dwarfs" that of all other vendors, with its biggest competitor, Samsung (SSNLF), seeing a 77% retention rate, she noted. Huberty, who sees Apple being positioned to gain increasing U.S. smartphone share, raised her price target on Apple to $177 from $161 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Synaptics price target lowered to $35 from $45 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz lowered his price target for Synaptics (SYNA) to $35 from $45, citing his bearish outlook on the company's fingerprint and DDIC business. The analyst's model implies "significant" fingerprint revenue loss from Samsung (SSNLF) and ongoing decline of DDIC revenues from Apple (AAPL). Meanwhile, Uerkwitz believes its new products such as optical fingerprint sensor and OLED DDIC are unlikely to offset the decline until after FY19. He reiterates an Underperform rating on Synaptics' shares.

Foldable smartphones another potential catalyst for Coherent, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Patrick Newton noted that AP reported yesterday that the President of Samsung's (SSNLF) mobile business said the company could release its anticipated foldable smartphone as soon as next year. Such a potential launch, and likely broader adoption of the technology by peers, is a potential long-term catalyst for Coherent (COHR) and other such equipment suppliers whose revenues are linearly correlated with total screen area, he tells investors. Also, higher resolution OLED displays, like the one confirmed yesterday for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone X, are a positive for Coherent's future recurring revenue from laser discharge units, added Newton, who keeps a Buy rating on Coherent shares.

He raised his 2018 revenue and earnings estimates for Himax (HIMX) given growing confidence in its 3D sensing opportunity and raised his price target on the stock to $15 from $12. He keeps an Outperform rating on Himax shares.

Oppenheimer still views Himax as overvalued, keeps $4 price target
A history of growth opportunities not panning out coupled with a deteriorating core business make shares of Himax Technologies overvalued, Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz tells investors in a research note titled "Deja Vu All Over Again?" The analyst notes that his channel checks are inconclusive regarding near-term Diffractive Optical Element design wins. "To be generous," Uerkwitz models an Apple (AAPL) design win. He believes, however, that Himax is not well positioned competitively to be a primary player in this space for the Android segment beyond basic components such as DOE. The analyst reiterates an Underperform rating on Himax with a $4 price target. The shares closed yesterday at $11.09.

Baird still believes Himax has multiple engagements for 3D cameras
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra notes that Himax (HMIX) and Qualcomm (QCOM) announced a collaboration for a 3D depth sensing camera system to enable computer vision capabilities, notably for use in smartphones. The analyst continues to believe Himax has multiple engagements for 3D cameras in smartphones starting to ramp next year, and views 3D cameras as a critical new, high-ASP component ramp in smartphones over the next few years. Additionally, Gerra points out that Apple (AAPL) may emulate multiple smartphone OEMs to adopt 3D Sensing starting next year. Many smartphone OEMs will require a turnkey 3D camera solution, which Himax/Qualcomm are best positioned to supply, he said. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $10 price target on Himax shares.

Wells Fargo downgrades Semiconductor sector to Market Weight
Wells Fargo analyst David Wong downgraded the Semiconductor sector to Market Weight from Overweight. Recent earnings reports from chip companies suggest that year-over-year growth will likely plateau or perhaps even decelerate over the next few months, Wong tells investors in a research note. He believes many chip stocks now have "elevated multiples" off calendar 2018 earnings estimates. Wong still sees good investment opportunities in some specific stocks, however, and reiterates Outperform ratings on Intel (INTC), Qualcomm (QCOM), Micron (MU), AMD (AMD), Skyworks (SWKS) and Microsemi (MSCC).

NXP Semiconductors target raised above deal price to $117 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Craig Hettenbach believes NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) shareholders "have the upper hand" in seeking to push for a higher takeout price from Qualcomm (QCOM), while also thinking a higher bid would be "inconsequential" to Qualcomm's balance sheet and deal accretion. The analyst, who sees momentum building for a higher deal price and a "hard time believing" Qualcomm would walk away rather than raise the price and get a deal done, raised his price target on NXP to $117.50 from $110. He keeps an Equal Weight rating on NXP shares.

CEVA could be pressured by latest in Qualcomm-Apple fight, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Gary Mobley noted that Qualcomm (QCOM) announced that the ITC has commenced an investigation into Apple's (AAPL) use of certain mobile devices, radio frequency and processing components" as the companies continue their legal fight over disputed royalties. Intel (INTC) and Qualcomm currently split the iPhone 7 thin modem business and it is expected they'll also evenly split the iPhone 8 business, said Mobley, who noted that CEVA (CEVA) could lose $2M-$2.5M in annual royalties if the Intel-based phones are banned for U.S. import. He keeps a Buy rating on CEVA shares, which are down fractionally in early trading.
