FB design head touts voice command, stays silent on hardware, TechCrunch says

Facebook (FB) head of design Luke Woods said services like voice command and voice search are promising, but declined to comment on the subject of hardware which uses a voice interface, TechCrunch reports, citing comments he made at TechCrunch Disrupt. Facebook is reportedly developing a video chat device and a smart speaker that would use a voice interface in order to compete with Amazon (AMZN) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL). Reference Link

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.

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 remains positive on Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts
KeyBanc analyst Evan Wingren remains positive on Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA), and Take-Two (TTWO) after attending eSCon, a small eSports conference in Los Angeles. The analyst believes interest and momentum in the space remains high, and continues to think the majority of the economics in the industry will accrue to IP owners and scaled technology partners. Therefore, Wingren continues to see the publishers as well-positioned, as well as Amazon's (AMZN) Twitch, Google's (GOOG; GOOGL) YouTube, and Facebook (FB).

Amazon can add 2.5M Prime members via Whole Foods deal, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said he sees Whole Foods driving faster Prime subscription growth, as he estimates that about 5M Whole Foods households are not currently Prime members and he expects Prime-only pricing and offers can help Amazon convert half of these shoppers over to its service. He noted he is ahead of the Street consensus view on revenue, modeling 12% CAGR revenue growth for Whole Foods from 2017-2022, but he thinks consensus Consolidated Segment Operating Income, or CSOI, expectations appear "overly optimistic." After raising his Amazon estimates to integrate Whole Foods, Nowak keeps an Overweight rating and $1,150 price target on the shares.

CBS recent share weakness overdone, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani views the recent pullback in shares of CBS (CBS) as overdone. The stock has underperformed over the prior month, down 12% versus the S&P 500 Index up 1%, Quadrani tells investors in a research note titled "Weather Channel's Gain is NFL's Pain; CBS Weakness Overdone." The analyst attributes yesterday's selloff to NFL ratings for week one, which declined 12% year-over-year. It is unreasonable to draw conclusions from just one weekend of games, especially last weekend given the storms, the analyst argues. Further, Quadrani says CBS CEO Les Moonves' comment yesterday that Amazon (AMZN) would be interested in bidding for NFL rights when they come due early next decade is "hardly news." She keeps an Overweight rating on CBS with a $75 price target.

Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James upgraded Henry Schein (HSIC) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $193 from $190. The analyst believes concern over Amazon (AMZN) entering the market is overdone and sees potential for improvement in dental consumables based on her firm's consumer surveys. James believes the recent pullback in Henry Schein shares creates an attractive entry point. She calls the company a "high quality, low earnings risk name."

Alphabet TAC cost may moderate in coming quarters, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said his analysis suggests traffic acquisition cost, or TAC, headwinds for Google may moderate in coming quarters. He believes Alphabet shares have been range bound due to TAC-related margin pressures, but they could moderate earlier than many investors anticipate, in part due to the company lapping distribution agreements. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $1,100 price target on Alphabet shares.

Ford's new leaders may be better positioned for Waymo deal, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas previewed Ford's (F) strategic update scheduled for October 3, calling it an important event that could have a potentially significant impact on the perception of the company's long-term direction. Noting prior media reports about talks between Ford and Google (GOOG) on autonomous cars that reportedly fell apart in 2016, Jonas opined that Ford's new leadership may be better positioned to potentially negotiate a partnership with Alphabet's autonomous car division Waymo, but he noted that the companies have not said whether they are currently considering a deal. Ford may not have the same type of brands as Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) that are conducive to potential carve-outs, but Jonas would not exclude the potential for it to conduct a review of its portfolio as part of its strategy to become a mobility company, he added.

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.

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."
