Herbalife estimates lowered on share repurchase challenges at Pivotal Research
Pivotal analyst Timothy Ramey lowered his Q4 and 2018 estimates for Herbalife as he now believes the company's and his own share repurchase forecasts "are not attainable." Ramey added that "is bizarre that the company was so singularly unsuccessful at share repurchase to not even spend its cash flow this year," but he hopes the company's Dutch Auction is successful and allows for some progress on retiring shares. He keeps a Buy rating and $120 price target on Herbalife shares.

Herbalife earnings beat on lower tax rate, says Citi

China Mobile tender offer looks 'significant' for optical stocks, says Needham
Needham analyst Alex Henderson said the coherent transport ports tender offer announced by China Mobile (CHL) on its Chinese language website looks "significant in scale and material" for optical stocks. He noted that NeoPhotonics (NPTN) gets roughly 60% of revenue from China and is directly exposed to coherent demand, while Acacia (ACIA) gets 50% of revenue from China and is also directly exposed. He noted that Oclaro (OCLR), Lumentum (LITE), Finisar (FNSR) all have China exposure, but are less tied to coherent, while adding that "this order has no bearing" on Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI).

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.

Fiat Chrysler upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Brian Johnson upgraded Fiat Chrysler to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to EUR 18 from EUR 13. The analyst likes both the strategic options and the operating story at Fiat. He believes CEO Sergio Marchionne, with 18 months left in his tenure, is open to a range of options to unlock shareholder value. Further, "at a minmum," the analyst sees Fiat coming closer to the 2018 targets than does consensus.

Fiat Chrysler liklely to spinout certain businesses, says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst George Galliers said its high probability Fiat Chrysler spins-out or sells certain components businesses, most likely Magneti Marelli and Comau units. The analyst said CEO Marchonne has made comments that the components businesses do not belong and notes his history of unlocking shareholder value through M&A. Galliers expects actions before Marchonne's retirement at the end of 2018. The analyst rates shares an Outperform and increased his price target to EURO$17.00 from EURO$12.00.

Ford's new leaders may be better positioned for Waymo deal, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas previewed Ford's (F) strategic update scheduled for October 3, calling it an important event that could have a potentially significant impact on the perception of the company's long-term direction. Noting prior media reports about talks between Ford and Google (GOOG) on autonomous cars that reportedly fell apart in 2016, Jonas opined that Ford's new leadership may be better positioned to potentially negotiate a partnership with Alphabet's autonomous car division Waymo, but he noted that the companies have not said whether they are currently considering a deal. Ford may not have the same type of brands as Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) that are conducive to potential carve-outs, but Jonas would not exclude the potential for it to conduct a review of its portfolio as part of its strategy to become a mobility company, he added.

Conviction Buy
Fiat Chrysler has numerous catalysts for value creation, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Stefan Burgstaller said recent comments by Fiat Chrysler CEO Marchionne suggest potential for further value creation from the spin-off of Magneti Marelli, Comau, and eventually Maserati/Alfa Romeo. The analyst said investors today can acquire the Fiat Chrysler core, which includes Jeep and Ram which generate 80% of group EBIT, essentially for free. He sees further value creation from free cash flow over the next 18 months and potential M&A interest for the core business by interested industrial suitors. Burgstaller rates Fiat Chrysler a Conviction Buy.
