Apple CEO tells Independent: Still 'huge challenges' with smart glasses

Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook told The Independent in an interview that there are still "huge challenges" with smart glasses that augment users' reality. When asked about smart glasses, Cook commented, "There are rumors and stuff about companies working on those -- we obviously don't talk about what we're working on. But today I can tell you the technology itself doesn't exist to do that in a quality way. The display technology required, as well as putting enough stuff around your face -- there's huge challenges with that. Additionally, Cook commented that "The field of view, the quality of the display itself, it's not there yet" and that Apple will only ship something if it feels it can do it "in a quality way." Google (GOOG) previously stopped selling Google Glass to consumers. Reference Link

Apple target raised to $199 on higher U.S. iPhone estimates at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said the firm's smartphone survey conducted after Apple's September product launch showed that iPhone retention and "switcher" rates, or the percentage of non-iPhone users expected to move to an iPhone, have increased from the firm's last check in April. Given the new survey data, the firm's estimate of North American iPhone shipments was raised to 74M from 72M units and, keeping the rest of the world unchanged, that drives its global iPhone upgrade forecast to 268M units from 266M. Noting this increased forecast, along with "surprisingly bullish" Apple Watch demand revealed in the survey, Huberty raised her price target on Apple shares to $199 from $194 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Piper teen survey shows Apple remains dominant brand
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his firm's s bi-annual teen survey shows Apple's place as the dominant device brand among teens remains intact. Of the over 6,000 teens surveyed, 78% have an iPhone, up from 76% in the spring, and 82% anticipate their next phone to be an iPhone, Olson tells investors in a research note. The Apple Watch was the top smartwatch among teens, garnering 12%, with the Samsung Gear next on the list at 2%, the analyst adds. He maintains an Overweight rating on Apple with a $196 price target.

Apple near-term iPhone unit estimate cut, ASPs raised at Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research lowered its iPhone unit estimate for the December quarter to 81M from 86M citing soft initial traction for the 8/8+ and limited availability of the iPhone X. The firm, which also increased its FY18 iPhone Average Selling Price estimate to $718 from $700, said it remains optimistic on Apple's margin opportunities and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Street estimates too low for RF stocks, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Karl Ackerman believes there may be near-term risk for Broadcom (AVGO), Qorvo (QRVO) and Skyworks (SWKS) due to potential delays in the iPhone, but he said investors are not pricing in an iPhone super-cycle. He believes the sell-side has become more bearish on the Apple (AAPL) supply chain since the iPhone launch, but he feels the Street estimates are too low. Ackerman sees a long RF content growth opportunity moving forward and believes Broadcom, Qorvo, and Skyworks are best positioned.

Alphabet valuation still looks compelling, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill says Google's (GOOGL) valuation, even with the stock up 25% year-to-date, still looks compelling. The company "has the right pieces in place to deliver meaningful 20+% upside," Thill tells investors in a research note titled "Google Picture Book: No Shortage of Value in These Search Results." He believes Google's initiatives, like Google Cloud and recently raised bets on hardware, could boost consensus estimates. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $1,200 price target.

Alphabet Waymo still has 'significant limitations,' says Bernstein
Commenting on a media report saying Alphabet's Waymo is preparing to launch "a commercial ride-sharing service powered by self-driving vehicles with no human 'safety' drivers as soon as this fall," Bernstein analyst Max Warburton says that any service will be" very limited and experimental." However, he notes that its launch may scare auto sector investors. The Waymo vehicles still have "significant limitations," he contends, adding that they are not about to disrupt the industry soon.

Google AI focus in hardware has potential, modest impact, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves says Google showed off new Pixel smartphones, additions to its smart speaker line, a new laptop, and other accessories at its hardware launch event yesterday. The analyst notes that the hardware matches up well against competitors, and features a heavy focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning-based features. However, distribution of the Pixel 2 remains limited and incremental advancements in the other hardware lines do not appear material enough to drive a noticeable inflection in Google's Other Revenue, where hardware sales are recognized, he contends. Hargreaves sees potential in Google's hardware business, but much greater distribution is likely necessary to drive a meaningful inflection in the model. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

YouTube TV 'significant strategic benefits' offset lack of profit, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves says that Google's brand, engineering prowess, and budget position YouTube TV to capture share of U.S. pay-TV subscribers. While YouTube TV is unlikely to be profitable on a stand-alone basis, the analyst believes it creates a substantial opportunity for Google to capture TV ad dollars, accelerate consumption of traditional YouTube content on televisions, and benefit Google's broader advertising efforts. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju raised his price target for Class A shares of Alphabet to $1350 from $1100 ahead of Q3 results. The analyst says his conversations with advertisers suggest minimal search budget growth deceleration coupled with potentially accelerating spend on YouTube due to multiple factors. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
