Microsoft's Bing to focus on PC search market, Reuters reports

Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Satya Nadella said the company's Bing search engine will concentrate on expanding in the PC search market after losing its deal with Apple's (AAPL) Siri digital assistant, Reuters reports, citing comments made at a newsmaker event in New York. Earlier this week, Apple said it would replace Bing as its default search engine for Siri on iOS and Spotlight on Mac with Google (GOOG). Reference Link

Microsoft to expand penetration in enterprise computing, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Mark Moerdler notes that Microsoft held both its Ignite and Envision conferences in Orlando this week and shared its updated vision for the company and the industry. The analyst believes Microsoft clearly presented its vision for expanding its presence and increasing its penetration across every aspect of enterprise computing, and has moved to a "big-tent" approach where they partner even with their traditional competitors to meet customer requirements and drive adoption of core Microsoft technologies and especially Azure. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $87 price target on the shares.

Valuing Microsoft should shift to cash flow multiple, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Nemeroff believes investors should begin to shift their framework for valuing Microsoft shares to a cash flow multiple as an increasing percentage of its business shifts to recurring sources of revenue. The analyst notes that Microsoft shares currently trade at a discounted cash flow multiple to its legacy/on-premise software peers, but he believes a premium multiple to this peer group is warranted given its prospects for accelerating top line growth and better cash flow visibility over the next few years. Nemeroff reiterates an Outperform rating and $84 price target on the shares.

Microsoft weakness on dividend disappointment a buying opportunity, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Brad Reback noted that he expected Microsoft to raise its dividend by 10%-15%, in-line with its average annual rate of increase over the past 10 years, not the 7.6% by which the company increased it. The dividend news paired with the fact that G. Mason Morfit of ValueAct is leaving the board may put the stock under modest pressure, but if so he would view the pullback as a buying opportunity, he tells investors. Reback keeps a Buy rating and $80 price target on Microsoft shares.

Audience extension could drive LinkedIn budget share higher, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Peter Stabler notes that Microsoft LinkedIn is now distributing Sponsored Content ads via third-party sites and apps and ad exchanges. His checks with marketing developers suggest LinkedIn maintains low-single-digit share of social marketing budgets. Beta testing suggests "significant lift" in impression and click volumes, and Stabler believes audience extension could drive LinkedIn's budget share higher.

Jabil Circuit traded down on costs, ramping challenges, says Citi
Citi analyst Jim Suva says Jabil Circuit (JBL) traded down 1% despite last night's better than expected August quarter as the company explained some additional costs and ramping challenges. In a research note titled "Results Beat As Apple Creates Upside & Challenges at the Same Time," Suva keeps a Sell rating on Jabil with a $28 price target. The company is executing very well and its top customer Apple (AAPL) is entering a super cycle for a massive iPhone 8 product launch, the analyst writes. He notes, however, that his experience is new product cycles often lead to manufacturing challenges.

Jabil Circuit near-term 'hazy' due to Apple production ramp timing, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Matthew Sheerin attributes Jabil Circuit's "particularly wide" guidance for the new quarter to uncertainty around timing for production runs of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone X. The company's DMS segment margins missed expectations due to manufacturing hiccups related to production ramps for Apple casings and frames for the iPhones, he believes, adding that Jabil said those issues lingered into September but have since been resolved. Sheerin keeps a Hold rating and $30 price target on Jabil shares.

Apple iPhone X mix will be high but 'No Supercyle,' says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt said September survey results indicate no evidence of an accelerated upgrade cycle for the iPhone 8 or X, but suggests better demand for the X over the 8 due to the price difference and lack of "killer app." McCourt lowered his Apple iPhone FY18 unit outlook to 240M from 260M, but increased his gross margin and ASP assumptions based on new iPhone price points and mix, resulting in an increase in Apple's price target to $180 from $170. The analyst remains materially below consensus on December forecasts, and expects year-over-year growth to peak in first half 2018, which historically corresponded with stock peaks. McCourt views the recent pullback as a trading opportunity and maintains his Outperform rating.

Apple shares fairly valued around $140, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner believes optimistic expectations will make it hard for Apple share upside to continue. She remains "wary" that investor expectations for the iPhone 8 and X cycle are "more optimistic than realistic." Upside has already been priced in with the shares up 37% year-to-date and consensus estimates having consistently moved higher through 2017, Scribner tells investors in a research note titled "Expectations are pricing in more than Apple can chew." She sees "modest downside risk" to shares in the near-term and finds Apple fairly valued in the $140 range. Estimates for fiscal year 2019 need to come down to "realistically reflect a year after a strong cycle," Scribner writes. She keeps a Hold rating on Apple with a $140 price target. The shares closed yesterday up $1.09 to $154.23.

Google's Bitium acquisition has little implication for Okta, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Rob Owens notes Google (GOOG; GOOGL) announced the acquisition of Bitium, which offers IAM solutions that include single sign-on and provisioning for cloud applications. The analyst sees the implications as muted for Okta's (OKTA) competitive dynamic, with the latter offering a broader integration ecosystem, richer technology integrations, and a portfolio of identity centric solutions that extends beyond provisioning and SSO. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $35 price target on Okta's shares.

Smart doorbell business competition positive for Ambarella, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Kevin Cassidy notes that Nest, a subsidiary of Google (GOOG; GOOGL), announced that it is moving into the smart doorbell business with Hello, and argues that multiple sources create healthy competition and expands the end market. The analyst believes Ambarella's (AMBA) products are a key part of this device, based on its presence in the rival Ring product. He reiterates a Buy rating and $52 price target on Ambarella's shares.

Nest product does not change Alarm.com's growth potential, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Bhavan Suri believes Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Nest's new do-it-yourself security system does not change Alarm.com's (ALRM) long-term growth potential. Nest Secure is not that differentiated from existing do-it-yourself products, therefore its impact on the monitored security market should not be that material, Suri tells investors in a research note. He also do not see Moni, one of Alarm.com's largest customers, providing the professional monitoring service for Nest as a big headwind to Alarm.com. He believes Moni would rather push its own service, which is run on Alarm.com, versus Nest due to better monetization and a direct relationship with the customer. Suri keeps an Outperform rating on Alarm.com.
