McDonald's picks Interpublic's Huge over Accenture, Adweek reports

McDonald's (MCD) hired Interpublic Group's (IPG) Huge over Accenture (ACN) to handle its U.S. digital design and user experience work, Patrick Coffee of Adweek reported yesterday, citing two parties with direct knowledge of the matter. The writer calls the development a "major win" for Huge. Sources told him that McDonald's digital review "flew under the radar," with Huge up against Accenture Interactive's design and innovation division Fjord in the last round. Reference Link

Interpublic Group upgraded to Buy from Hold at Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser upgraded Interpublic Group to Buy and maintained a $24 price target citing the recent share pullback. The analyst said the recent 20% share decline following the surprisingly weak Q2 and reduced outlook is not commensurate with the change in the value of the business.

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).

Buy
Interpublic Group upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet upgraded Interpublic Group (IPG) to Buy while lowering his price target for the shares to $24 from $26. The analyst sees a favorable risk/reward at current share levels. In 2018, there is nearly $2 upside for every $1 of downside, and in 2019, the upside-to-downside ratio expands to nearly 6:1, Bazinet tells investors in a research note where he also upgraded Omnicom (OMC) to Neutral.

Fast food restaurants more insulated from Amazon effects, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital says that fast food companies "are likely more insulated" from Amazon (AMZN) than other types of restaurants "due to their convenience-based usage occasions, low price points, and insulation from deflationary pressures." The firm identifies Wendy's (WEN) and McDonald's (MCD) as its favorite names in the fast food space.

The analyst thinks Accenture (ACN), IBM (IBM), DXC Technology (DXC), and EPAM Systems (EPAM), among others, could benefit from the shift to AI.

Accenture risk/reward into earnings 'decent,' says Baird
Baird analyst David Koning views Accenture risk/reward as "decent" into Q4 earnings as consensus estimates are biased higher, but notes shares have been strong since September. The analyst said foreign exchange and acquisitions have become increasingly positive for 2018 and believes revenue growth will be guided to 7%-9%, versus consensus of 7%. Koning believes valuation will hold or improve a bit as reported growth is likely to accelerate to the high single digits in FY18. The analyst raised his price target to $148 from $142 and maintains a Neutral rating.

After its Q2 report, Credit Suisse analyst Charles Brennan said Cognizant (CTSH) remains one of the fastest growing companies in Computer Services & IT Consulting and deserves a valuation more in line with slower-growing peer Accenture (ACN). The analyst raised his price target on Cognizant to $80 from $70 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
