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.

Jabil Circuit should be bought on weakness, says Needham

The analyst believes that the company is making progress in its effort to diversify its business away from Apple (AAPL), while its product mix and "general execution" are improving. He recommends buying the stock on weakness.

Survey shows 'strong' demand for iPhone X, says RBC Capital
After RBC Capital conducted a survey of over 4,000 people, Amit Daryanani, an analyst at the firm, says that 28% of respondents are "interested" in buying the iPhone X, while 64% of respondents are interested in buying one of the new iPhones, down from 71% a year ago. The analyst says that the data indicates that demand for iPhone x is "strong," while the survey "suggests there could be stability in the iPhone replacement cycle" and switching from Android could increase. He keeps a $180 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.

Micron stock 'looks cheap,' says Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Mark Delaney said Micron's stock "looks cheap" and expects FY18 consensus earnings estimates to move higher given Q1 2018 guidance that was well above consensus combined with comments regarding 2018. The analyst raised FY18/FY19 earnings estimates, including SBC, to $8.42/$5.87 from $7.60/$5.30 and increased Micron's price target to $43 from $40.

Micron gross margins level makes for compelling valuation, says Baird
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra said he believes in the sustainability of the supply/demand trends for Micron following its Q4 results. The continued mix improvement in NAND and easy comps, above average 3D yields, and corporate initiatives support a scenario for stable or expanding gross margins over the next several quarters, he believes. Gerra reiterated his Outperform rating and raised his price target to $52 from $48 on Micron shares.

Marriott should be bought on pullbacks, says Citi
Citi analyst Smedes Rose says Marriott International's core trends in Q2 were modestly ahead of expectations while its outlook is largely unchanged through the balance of the year. The analyst believes this could drive near-term weakness in shares. Marriott has "numerous levers to outsized earnings growth" going forward and the stock should be bought opportunistically on pullbacks, Rose writes in a post-earnings research note. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Marriott shares with a $120 price target.

Marriott, Hilton weakness creates buying opportunity, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst David Beckel says that the decline in the shares of Marriott (MAR) and Hilton (HLT) has created a "near-term buying opportunity." The analyst says that Marriott's stock fell following its results even though it reported "perfectly respectable earnings," while Hilton declined in sympathy. He says that Marriott is trading below its historical average relative to the S&P and predicts that the lodging sector will "trudge on rather than decelerate further.."

Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.
