Google said to acquire certain HTC assets, VentureBeat's Bass reports

VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass said via Twitter, "[1] Someone sent me a copy of an internal invitation to an HTC employee Town Hall meeting tmrw (9/21). One alleged topic: Google acquisition...[2] According to this person, the companies have finalized a deal wherein GOOG will acquire certain HW eng assets, but HTC retains its brand...Sounds like HTC will focus on VIVE, and wants its brand for that."

Citi analyst Mark May says early checks with two leading search engine marketing firms, Merkle and Kenshoo, suggest that growth in Google search spend remains strong and that the company is on track to at least meet expectations in Q3.

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).

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 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.
