Twitter policy VP briefing Congress on Russia, 2016, Recode's Romm says

Recode's Tony Romm tweeted this morning, "Twitter (TWTR) policy VP Colin Crowell just entered the classified, closed-door meeting with Senate Intel staff to talk Russia and 2016. Twitter declined to answer questions about their upcoming presentation to congressional aides. More soon." The Fly notes that a number of publications have reported that the Senate Committee is asking Twitter, Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) to testify at a hearing on November 1. Reference Link

Wedbush cites Snap's 'hugely unprofitable' history in Neutral initiation report
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter initiated Snap (SNAP) last night with a Neutral rating and $12 price target. The shares closed yesterday down 3c to $14.96. Decelerating growth trends, "fierce" competition for user mindshare and advertiser dollars, and a history of being "hugely unprofitable" justify being on the sidelines with respect to the shares, Pachter tells investors in a research note. He notes his $12 price target reflects a slight premium to Twitter's (TWTR) multiple, since Snap "appears to have a longer runway for continued growth," and a discount to Facebook's (FB) multiple, a company with "superior monetization and growth trends."

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).

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Brent Hill, who prefers Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Snap (SNAP) as plays on the digital video transition occurring across the social media space. Thill, who thinks Twitter will underperform broader internet and social peers, acknowledged that investors might ask why he is not advising to sell the stock, but he thinks recent management changes could improve the company's declining ARPU in the near-term. 2. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital by analyst Shannon Coyne, who said that there are bright spots ahead for the company, but sees "clouds on the horizon" looking ahead, including a slowing beauty market and department stores that are "upping their collective game." 3. Hormel Foods (HRL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse by analyst Robert Moskow, who said increased volatility in the protein markets has reduced earnings visibility and his confidence in FY2020 margin targets of 15-19%. Moskow sees further risk from the pork industry's 10% expansion in slaughter capacity. 4. TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Shutterstock (SSTK) downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Jefferies. 5. Domino's Pizza (DPZ) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus by analyst John Staszak due to concerns about slowing international revenue combined with a potential for a comparable slowdown in domestic sales. The analyst now expects Domino's to post mid-single-digit comp growth following years of double-digit growth and believes margin gains will be limited going forward as the company invests in the business.

Jefferies cuts Twitter with Google, Facebook and Snap preferred in social video
As previously reported, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Hold from Buy in a note to investors after the market close yesterday, stating that he prefers Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Snap (SNAP) as plays on the digital video transition occurring across the social media space. Thill, who thinks Twitter will underperform broader internet and social peers, acknowledged that investors might ask why he is not advising to sell the stock, but he thinks recent management changes could improve the company's declining ARPU in the near-term. Thill lowered his price target on Twitter shares to $16 from $20.

Facebook price target raised to $215 from $185 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ken Sena raised his price target for Facebook to $215 from $185, while reiterating an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst notes that Facebook has the largest audience platform in the world at a time when the advancement in deep neural network science, or artificial intelligence, is setting up for a very different computing era, namely in the sense that it is adaptive, learns continually and will favor those with data scale and compute efficiency. Further, Sena thinks the company could yield "such a major opportunity" on the video side.

Deutsche sees upside to Facebook estimates, boosts target to $220
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley raised his Q3 and 2018 estimates for Facebook citing "increasing signs of strength." Conversations in the advertising industry continue to point towards "strong" same-client budget growth in Q3 and a longer term willingness to "lean into" new inventory on Facebook, Walmsley tells investors in a research note. He increased his ad revenue growth rate excluding currency for Facebook to 42% from 39% in Q3 and to 32% from 30% in 2018. The analyst believes Facebook has the most upside to estimates over the next 6-12 months and is his favorite name among the large cap Internet space. Walmsley upped his price target for the shares to $220 from $215 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. Facebook closed yesterday up $3.47 to $167.68.

Facebook checks suggest possible upside in Q3, says Citi
Citi analyst Mark May says early checks with two "leading" social marketing platforms, 4C and Kenshoo, suggest that growth in spend across the Facebook platform remains strong and that the company is on track to at least meet expectations in Q3. Total advertising growth in Q3 could be as high as it was in Q2, May tells investors in a research note titled "Early Agency Checks Suggest Upside Potential in Q3." He keeps a Buy rating on Facebook with a $200 price target.

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.
