Apple can't agree with terms for Facebook's subscription tool, Recode reports

Facebook's (FB) new subscription tool for its mobile app will have content that readers need a subscription to view and will send users to publisher's websites to purchase subscriptions, according to Recode, citing people familiar with the matter. Apple (AAPL) want's a 30% tax on the revenue generated from subscriptions per the company's rule on "in app" sales, while Facebook intends for all the revenue to go to publishers. While the two companies try to come to terms, Facebook will launch its new tool on Android devices only for now.Reference Link

GrubHub integrated into Facebook food ordering service, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Ralph Schackart says his preliminary research in two large markets, Chicago and New York, indicates GrubHub (GRUB) is integrated into Facebook's (FB) food ordering and delivery service. The analyst notes that various articles today highlight that GrubHub is not integrated into Facebook. GrubHub shares are well off their lows and are now up 9c to $52.23 in late morning trading.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,150 from $1,050 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sam Kemp raised his price target for Alphabet (GOOG) to $1,150 saying the shares remain his favorite large cap stock into year-end relative to Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Snap (SNAP). The analyst's analysis of browser traffic share suggests Alphabet's traffic acquisition costs may be positioned to show smaller increases in Q3 than it has year-to-date as paid browsers' traffic share gains have slowed. Solid topline results and TAC relief would be a "significant positive" in the Alphabet narrative, Kemp tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Facebook third-party ad checks bullish compared to consensus, says Stifel
In a preview of Facebook's upcoming earnings report, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt noted that management has highlighted, numerous times, that ad load growth on its core News Feed will become a less significant driver of revenue growth. Given that backdrop, Devitt noted that third-party ad agency Kenshoo's reading on Q3 social spending appears bullish relative to his and to consensus estimates for Facebook. He keeps a Buy rating and $200 price target on Facebook ahead of its report on November 1.

Apple supply chain to remain range-bound, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh says that because of supply constraints associated with the iPhone X, he anticipates Apple (AAPL) supply chain stocks will likely remain range-bound in the near term, given constraints make upside to estimates less likely, and constraints make it hard to assess true demand for the iPhone X. Additionally, his latest carrier survey indicates relatively lean iPhone 8 inventories despite muted demand and slightly higher demand for the iPhone 7. The analyst recommends investors continue to own Broadcom (AVGO), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), and Skyworks (SWKS).

Apple upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves upgraded Apple to Overweight from Sector Weight with a price target of $187. The shares closed Friday up 99c to $156.99. Apple is in the early stages of a "more aggressive market segmentation strategy" that will likely increase its gross profit per user and drive gross margin higher, Hargreaves tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, remains "somewhat pessimistic" on iPhone unit growth volumes. Increased gross margin assumptions rise his earnings per share estimate for fiscal year 2018 to $11.68 from $11.07. The analyst believes initial iPhone mix is likely to suggest strong high-end demand. This report updates the firm to KeyBanc, which previously merged with Pacific Crest.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) was upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc and Pacific Crest. 2. Infinera (INFN) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Stanley Kovler saying the risk/reward is balanced with material downward revisions to estimates likely limited. 3. AstraZeneca (AZN) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Rebekah Harper saying that after recent pipeline success for Tagrisso and Imfinzi, she sees a marked improvement in its strategic position in pricing power and replacement power. 4. KKR (KKR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexander Blostein citing a more stable, improving mix of balance sheet investments, lower concentration in large public holdings, and increased mix towards private holdings. 5. Groupon (GRPN) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Cowen with analyst Thomas Champion saying he believes the shares currently look more attractive given the company's new management and cost controls, improved North America results, and balanced expectations for the second half of 2017.

Drexel Hamilton 'aggressive buyers' of Apple on order cut report weakness
Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White said he would be an "aggressive buyer" of Apple shares amid the weakness that he attributes to media reports around order cuts for the iPhone 8/8 Plus. He believes the staggered launch of the iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X is causing more confusing data points relative to past cycles and notes that Apple has cut forecasts before "even during some of the best iPhone cycles." The analyst, who notes that consumers are waiting on the iPhone X, keeps a Buy rating and $208 price target on Apple shares, which are down 2.4% to $155.92 in early trading.
