NYU professor and brand expert Scott Galloway, who accurately predicted that Amazon (AMZN) would buy Whole Foods and who has previously stated that the next "logical" target would be Nordstrom (JWN), also predicts that Amazon is going to take on cable companies by purchasing AMC Networks (AMCX), The Next Web reported yesterday.

Applied Optoelectronics price target lowered to $75 from $115 at Needham
Needham analyst Alex Henderson cut his price target on Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) after the company pre-announced lower than expected Q3 revenue. The analyst believes that the company's top customer, Amazon (AMZN), " completely stopped buying 40G" while Applied Optoelectronics lost share at Amazon. The analyst remains upbeat on the company's 100G business, however, and keeps a Strong Buy rating on the stock.

Applied Optoelectronics price target lowered to $63 from $87 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen cut his price target for Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) to $63 saying last night's negative preannouncement shows the risk of high customer concentration with Amazon (AMZN) going from 47% of sales in Q2 to only 10% of sales in Q3. The analyst, while surprised by the news, still believes believe Applied Optoelectronics is well positioned in the 100G market. He anticipates "significantly better execution" for the company in 2018 as the 100G datacom cycle continues to evolve. Jensen keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

Oppenheimer sees Amazon retargeting solution as emerging opportunity for Kenshoo
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein noted he hosted a conference call with Oren Stern, General Manager of eCommerce Solutions at Kenshoo, a digital marketing platform, to discuss Amazon's e-Commerce product. The analyst says Stern believes that advertising budgets on Amazon are incremental to other digital formats such as search and social, and should hasten the shift from offline to online advertising. While Stern would not comment on Amazon's re-targeting solution - off platform on other websites - using its 1P data, Helfstein points out that he sees it as an emerging opportunity for the company. The analyst has an Outperform rating on Amazon's shares.

MercadoLibre building defensible position in Latin America, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt noted that MercadoLibre (MELI) shares fell about 10% after a news report in Brazil said Amazon (AMZN) will expand to product categories beyond books beginning October 18. However, Amazon's more aggressive move in Brazil is not a surprise to MercadoLibre management or investors, said the analyst, who sees the company continuing to build a defensible position in Latin America. It will take time for Amazon to ramp in Brazil and its growth could potentially accelerate the shift from offline to online, effectively growing the market, added Devitt, who keeps a Buy rating and $275 price target on MercadoLibre.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wal-Mart (WMT) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Matthew Fassler saying shares have achieved in three months what he had expected in a year on an improvement in sentiment, but not on higher earnings estimates. 2. Monro (MNRO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Bret Jordan citing expectations the company's earnings growth will slow in 2018 as its focus shifts from acquisitions to improving store-level execution. 3. Diamond Offshore (DO) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying that if an upturn is forthcoming, Transocean should outperform given a "diminution" of concern toward its balance sheet and more new contract catalysts. 4. Cummins (CMI) downgraded to Neutral following dealer checks at Longbow with analyst Faheem Sabeiha citing a recent truck dealer survey that suggests initial 2018 sales growth is below current industry forecasts, partly due to driver shortage concerns. 5. Disney (DIS), AMC Networks (AMCX), and Viacom (VIA, VIAB) were downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Disney downgraded to Neutral on increased pay-TV caution at Guggenheim
As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Michael Morris downgraded Disney (DIS) to Neutral from Buy, citing his increased caution toward pay-TV trends and concern that expectations for the contribution from its content cycle are too high. While he is optimistic about the company's proposed direct-to-consumer streaming products, he expects the initial investment and long lead time into the launch to weigh on sentiment over the next 12 months, Morris tells investors. The analyst, who lowered his price target on Disney to $105 from $122, also downgraded Viacom (VIAB) and AMC Networks (AMCX) this morning.

As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Michael Morris downgraded AMC Networks to Neutral from Buy, citing his concern about advertising growth trends and increased pressure from digital video competitors. He now forecasts 2018 domestic advertising revenue will decline by 2.3%, with a 6.2% decline at flagship AMC, as The Walking Dead continues to mature and potentially lose audience, he tells investors. Morris lowered his price target on AMC Networks to $60 from $73.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. ON Semiconductor (ON) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Mark Delaney citing the stock's relative outperformance and lack of catalysts over the next year. 2. Nordstrom (JWN) downgraded to Hold from Accumulate at Gordon Haskett. 3. Mallinckrodt (MNK) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Mizuho with analyst Irina Koffler saying Mallinckrodt consists of a gradually declining generics portfolio, and a "basket" of branded assets that face some degree of competition and downside risks. 4. Whiting Petroleum (WLL) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Drew Venker citing weak risk-reward relative to peers. 5. GasLog (GLOG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at DNB Markets. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Nordstrom worth up to $54 in an LBO, says Wolfe Research
Wolfe analyst Adrienne Yih said Nordstrom could fetch up to $54 per share in an LBO, particularly with a substantive equity rollover contribution of the Nordstrom family's current stake. Yih said going private would allow the company to make long-term investments in various initiatives without the public backlash from investors.
