Regulators inquiries fuel speculation about big tech breakup, Barron's says

Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOG; GOOGL) deserve a lot of the credit for last week's record stock market highs but their positive effect will now depend on how they respond to U.S. and European regulators, Tiernan Ray writes in this week's edition of Barron's. European inquiries and those from the U.S.'s Federal Trade Commission have prompted speculation about the breakup of these companies, he adds. And it is not only antitrust issues that are in play, as many see the huge amounts of personal data that these companies are amassing as troubling, Ray contends. Reference Link

Cowen analyst John Blackledge raised his price target on Match (MTCH) to $28 from $22 to reflect its successful launch of Tinder Gold during the quarter, its integrated advertising with Facebook (FB), and its march to $1B in revenues.

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.

Amazon.com co-opetition with Google becoming more important, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte previews Amazon's (AMZN) Q3 earnings, noting particular attention will be paid to the company's "co-opetition" efforts with Google (GOOG), the competitive threat from Walmart (WMT), and initial performance of Whole Foods. Forte notes that the Google challenge in particular is becoming increasingly important and "problematic" for Amazon, as Google's search algorithm changes made in May resulted in prioritizing local stores with physical inventory of merchandise. This has prompted Amazon to increase spending on Google's product listing ads to preserve its traffic, which weighed on profits in Q2 and may again be a headwind in Q3, the analyst writes in his research report titled "Clash of the Titans". Forte maintains a Buy rating and a $1,300 price target on Amazon stock.

DA Davidson speculates on whether Amazon should buy Sally Beauty
With Sally Beauty (SBH) shares trading lower intraday, DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser published a note in which she covered seven points to consider when evaluating whether the company will be, or should be, an acquisition target for Amazon (AMZN). The analyst, who also attributed today's strength in Ulta Beauty (ULTA) to speculation that Wal-Mart (WMT) will buy it, said beauty has been a hard category to crack for Amazon. She concludes that Sally Beauty's "uniquely high gross margin of 55% and high number of U.S. retail stores" were key reasons why Amazon has chosen the company as its beauty partner.

lululemon upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez upgraded lululemon athletica to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $73 from $62. The athletic apparel maker closed yesterday up 37c to $60.09. Recent market concerns around Amazon.com (AMZN) competition, denim trends and weather are overblown, Lejuez tells investors in a research note. He believes current lululemon share levels represent an attractive entry point for "one of the best performing brands (and long term growth stories) in all of retail."

GoPro upgraded to Buy on 'misguided' return to early 2017 valuation at Longbow
As previously reported, Longbow analyst Joe Wittine upgraded GoPro (GPRO) to Buy from Neutral, noting that the stock's valuation has returned to early 2017 levels, which he views as "misguided" given the execution improvement made since that time. Google (GOOG) Clips, which he attributes to having driven some of the recent selloff, is "not a competitive problem," Wittine tells investors. Additionally, his early channel checks show "good enough" initial market momentum for the HERO6, the analyst noted. Wittine has a $13 price target on GoPro shares.

Intel adds to Broadcom's "growing" custom chip design wins in artificial intelligence, which already include Google's (GOOGL, GOOG) first and second generation Tensor Processing Units and Fujitsu's deep learning unit artificial intelligence processor chip, Sur tells investors in a research note. Broadcom remains the analyst's top pick in semiconductors. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $315 price target.
