Market just beginning to recognize Codexis opportunity, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Matt Hewitt says Codexis (CDXS) has a "unique proprietary CodeEvolver protein engineering platform" that is being sought by large pharma names, citing yesterday's announcement of a partnership with Nestle (NSRGY). Hewitt says that despite the recent stock price appreciation, the increasing value of the company's development pipeline suggests the markets is just starting to recognize the opportunity. The analyst has a Buy rating and a $7 price target on the stock.

'Third Wave' coffee shops still too small to hurt Starbucks, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst John Glass said the emergence of more "Third Wave" coffee shops have fueled competitive fears for Starbucks (SBUX), but he contends that the absolute numbers of specialty chains with 10 or more units remain small and most data sources show smaller chains and independents are flat to slightly declining in number. Recent high profile investments in specialty coffee, such as JAB's purchases of Stumptown and Intelligentsia and Nestle's (NSRGY) majority stake in Blue Bottle, are making headlines, but the brands' competitive relevance may be overstated, Glass tells investors. The analyst, who added that the last time McDonald's (MCD) pushed into specialty coffee it had "no discernable negative impact on Starbucks, and arguably even a positive one," keeps an Overweight rating and $62 price target on Starbucks shares.

Kraft Heinz could have interest in Nestle divestitures, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery expects Kraft Heinz (KHC) to pursue further consolidation, likely in packaged food, and believes potential divestitures from Nestle (NSRGY) could fit the company's criteria well. Such a deal could boost Kraft's international scale and provide synergy savings in its U.S. frozen supply chain, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Neutral rating on Kraft Heinz shares with a $92 price target.

JPMorgan sees Kraft, Conagra, Dean rallying on Nestle speculation
JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman expects Third Point's desire for Nestle (NSRGY) to divest assets to have an impact on shares of U.S. food producers. The analyst expects shares of Kraft Heinz (KHC), Conagra Brands (CAG) and Dean Foods (DF) to rally today on hopes of a potential accretive deal for some of Nestle's assets. The analyst thinks General Mills (GIS) shares may drop slightly on speculation that Nestle sells Cereal Partners Worldwide, which he believes would hinder the company's ability to grow cereal internationally. General Mills has a global partnership with Nestle via Cereal Partners Worldwide. Goldman also thinks Pinnacle Foods (PF) could trade down slightly with Conagra having "another potential dance partner" to do a deal.
