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.

Morgan Stanley raises price targets on Facebook, Priceline, Yelp
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak issued a note recapping his views on which U.S. Internet names are set to outperform the rest of this year and into next year, saying he is positive on Facebook (FB), Google (GOOGL) and Priceline (PCLN) among large caps. He raised his price target on Facebook to $195 from $190 and increased his price target on Priceline to $2,100 from $2,050. Nowak also raised his price target on Yelp (YELP) to $40 from $26, saying he believes near-term estimates on the Street are too low. However, he keeps an Equal Weight rating on Yelp shares, citing the recent slowdown in local account growth and worries about churn.

BWS Financial sees Applied Optoelectronics sales to Amazon softening further
BWS Financial analyst Hamed Khorsand said he believes Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) sales to Amazon (AMZN) have softened even more as the company moves away from 40G. He also thinks Intel's (INTC) start of shipments of a competing CWDM4 transceivers poses a threat to 100G revenue Applied has been generating from Facebook (FB). Khorsand keeps his Sell rating on Applied Optoelectronics shares.

DOWNGRADE

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.

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).

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."

Ahold Delhaize, Kroger deal would make sense, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Bruno Monteyne notes that Bloomberg is reporting speculation on Twitter (TWTR) that Ahold Delhaize (ADRNY) has hired advisors to study a possible $32/share Kroger (KR) bid. The analyst believes a merger makes sense both strategically and financially, but deal structure seems off - merger of equals rather than bid - and timing a bit too fast.
