Amazon's Seller Flex expansion unlikely to impact Stamps.com, says B. Riley

B. Riley analyst Kevin Liu believes Amazon.com's (AMZN) plans to expand its Seller Flex program more broadly in 2018 following a two-year pilot in India and testing in West Coast states, as reported yesterday by Bloomberg, is unlikely to impact Stamps.com (STMP). The Seller Flex program Seller Flex arranges for the pickup and delivery of merchandise from the seller's distribution facility, which could potentially impact volumes currently routed through the major domestic carriers, Liu tells investors in a research note. He believes FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS) have the most to lose given their exposure to large shippers. The analyst sees "little risk at present" to Stamps.com given that Seller Flex is targets merchants with a "far greater" assortment, order volumes, and logistical footprint than is typically targeted by the company's various brands. Liu reiterates a Buy rating on Stamps.com with a $250 price target.

Stamps.com selloff on Capitol Forum report unwarranted, says B. Riley
B. Riley analyst Kevin Liu attributed Stamps.com's over 6% move lower yesterday to a report from The Capitol Forum alluding to potentially significant changes in the USPS' Reseller Program. However, he thinks the report lacks any insight into the consequences of those changes for either resellers or Stamps and believes investors should take advantage of the weakness. Additionally, he noted that USPS published monthly data for July that showed PC Postage revenues increased 16% year-over-year, which he reads as a sign that recent organic growth trends should continue. Liu keeps a Buy rating and $250 price target on Stamps.com.

Stamps.com price target raised to $230, buy pullback, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Jason Kreyer notes that changes to the U.S. Postal Service reseller program last fall have been favorable for Stamps.com and he believes the recent letters submitted to resellers are now formalizing the processes to make these changes permanent. Kryer points to the results over the last three quarters and recent renegotiation of contracts with the USPS as indicative of positive change and the firm relationship between Stamps.com and the U.S. Postal Service . Sutton increases his price target to $230 from $210 and reiterates a Buy rating and would use the pullback as a buying opportunity.

Deutsche calls Bloomberg headline on Amazon rivaling UPS, FedEx misleading
The headline of Bloomberg's story this morning on Amazon titled "Amazon Is Said to Test Own Delivery Service to Rival FedEx, UPS" is misleading, Deutsche Bank analyst Amit Mehrotra tells investors in a research note. Amazon's initiates are aimed at growing its own volumes to lower unit shipment costs, the analyst contends. He does not find it likely that Amazon at this point will invests heavily in its own network for last mile business-to-consumer deliveries. FedEx (FDX) in early trading is down $1.01 to $220.31 while UPS (UPS) is down $1.42 to $117.58.

FedEx price target raised to $260 from $250 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson raised his price target on FedEx after the company reported much lower than expected Q1 EPS. The analyst blamed the miss on a cyberattack and Hurricane Harvey. The analyst notes that the company expects FedEx Ground's operating income to rise this year, while it reiterated its operating income target for its Express unit. The analyst says that the stock "will have no choice" but to rise if the company continues to reiterate the latter target. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst William Selesky saying he expects Tesla to reach breakeven two quarters earlier than he'd previously forecast and sees the company achieving full-year profitability in fiscal 2019. 2. L3 Technologies (LLL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Drexel Hamilton analyst Pete Skibitski saying he is "cautiously" optimistic that there will be a positive resolution in fiscal 2018 budget negotiations, which will benefit the entire space, and notes L3's international outlook has improved as the year has progressed. 3. Foot Locker (FL) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Jay Sole saying he believes share weakness related to investor concerns surrounding share loss to Amazon (AMZN) and brands' own websites has created an "excellent" buying opportunity. 4. UPS (UPS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Christian Wetherbee saying he sees a "clear path" toward double-digit earnings growth returning in 2018. 5. Cognizant (CTSH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg with analyst Georgios Kertsos saying the market now considers U.S. immigration policy changes as unlikely, which leaves upside for investors.

Fears over Amazon (AMZN)/other factors have weighed down this best-in-class retailer to undeserving valuation levels, Gere adds. However, the analyst does not think the growth story is over. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Nomura 'comfortable' with below consensus Akamai estimates
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal says he's "comfortable" with his estimates for Akamai Technologies (AKAM) being below the consensus. The analyst is concerned about the trajectory of Akamai's media business, specifically its revenue from Amazon (AMZN), which represents 2% of its total revenue. Amazon may take content delivery network traffic in-house, possibly in the near term, Kvaal tells investors in a research note. He views Amazon as a likely do-it-yourself candidate given its scale and existing CDN platform, CloudFront. Kvaal has a Neutral rating on Akamai with a $47 price target.

The firm's analyst has heard Amazon has added eight freight companies for heavy/bulk inventory since the beginning of the year to improve its furniture offering and is targeting Wayfair given its growth of 50% in 2016 with sales reaching $3.4B.
