Deutsche Bank puts 50/50 odds on AT&T closing Time Warner deal
Recent news flow lowers the probability of AT&T (T) closing its acquisition of Time Warner (TWX), Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft tells investors in a research note. Divesting either DirecTV or Turner are both unattractive options for AT&T, the analyst contends. He puts the probability of the deal closing at 50% right now. If the deal does not close, Time Warner would attract interest from potential suitors within the media industry or outside of it, Kraft writes. He notes, however, that regulatory opposition "could potentially jeopardize certain other potential suitors' interest or ability to close." Nonetheless, the analyst believes Time Warner's stock price "would see meaningful upside in this scenario." As a standalone company, Kraft sees the stock hitting $83 in the near-term but appreciating to $95 over the next 12 months. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Time Warner while reducing his price target to $99 from $103. The shares yesterday closed down $1.45 to $87.05.

Cowen sees DOJ leak as negotiating tactic, expects Time Warner deal approval
Cowen analyst Doug Creutz believes the leak to The Wall Street Journal regarding the DOJ talks with AT&T (T) and Time Warner (TWX) is likely a negotiating tactic and he expects the deal is still likely to be approved. If a deal did not happen, he sees little downside to AT&T, while he thinks Time Warner could have downside to $80-$82 per share. Time Warner shares are down 4% to $94.41 in afternoon trading.

Netflix 'still the best value' for consumers despite price hike, says Stifel
After Netflix (NFLX) disclosed it is raising subscription prices for the Standard and Premium tiers in the U.S., Stifel analyst Scott Devitt said he expects "similar round number increases" in a number of other markets, noting that the company has also confirmed increases for its top two U.K. plans. The analyst, who noted that Hulu's ad-free option and HBO Now (TWX) remain as expensive or more expensive than Netflix, said its streaming service is "still the best value on the consumer Internet." Devitt keeps a Buy rating and $200 price target on Netflix shares.

Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.

Bank of America NII softness could weight on shares, says Nomura Instinet

The analyst remains encouraged by fee income resiliency, favorable credit trends, strong capital build, and compelling risk/reward, and reiterates his Buy rating and $27 price target.

Bank of America price target raised to $29 from $27 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on Bank of America following Q3 earnings to reflect higher than expected net interest margins. Fotheringham notes that among the top four banks, Bank of America is the only one offering positive return potential. The analyst also sees positive broader trends and an opportunity to buy credit-sensitive stocks, as "investors remain bullish on rates but bearish on credit". Fotheringham maintains a Market Perform rating on Bank of America.

Nvidia price target raised to $135 from $90 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Ambrish Srivastava raised his price target on Nvidia to $135 from $90 but kept his Underperform rating following Q3 results. The analyst says the quarter was very strong, with Data Center Group business rebounding strongly from the lackluster prior quarter and Gaming likely supported by the crypto demand. Longer term, Srivastava remains concerned that earnings will track lower relative to prior years and price volatility in cryptocurrency will hamper an "unsustainable" demand that is likely to ebb in the next several quarters.

Management believes the company remains well positioned to serve the cryptocurrency market long-term, while continuing to execute strongly in several secular growth markets. Ramsay said with the strong growth drivers intact, he reiterates his Buy rating and raised his price target to $225 from $190 on Nvidia shares.

Steves says the company was able to meet and exceed estimates for Data Center and Gaming, adding that the 3% after-market stock price gains are likely to hold. The analyst also notes that the impact from crypto currencies should fade now that the profitability of a mining rig has hit levels seen in early 2017 and the topic will fade from investor focus in the near-term.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Motors (GM) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst David Tamberrino saying his price target of $32 offers 28% potential downside. The analyst continues to believe the North America auto cycle has peaked and he remains cautious on the sector. 2. Merck (MRK) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust and to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley, as well as Barclays. 3. J.C. Penney (JCP) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi, to Neutral from Buy at Northcoast, and to Neutral from Positive at Susquehanna. 4. Macy's (M) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Paul Lejuez saying the retailer's sales and margins have been pressured for several years, and J.C. Penney's weak third quarter preannouncement on Friday serves as reminder of just how challenging the department store space is. 5. Under Armour (UAA, UA) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Robert Ohmes saying he expects management to lower fourth quarter guidance on its Q3 conference call due to the highly promotional environment. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Citi analyst Paul Lejuez downgraded Macy's (M) to Sell and cut his price target for the shares to $16 from $21. The retailer's sales and margins have been pressured for several years, and J.C. Penney's (JCP) weak Q3 preannouncement on Friday serves as reminder of just how challenging the department store space is, Lejuez tells investors in a research note. He believes risks are mounting at Macy's ahead of what is likely to be another promotional holiday season. Macy's has not found the right tools to offset negative store traffic and margin pressures, the analyst contends. Lejuez this morning also downgraded Penny to Sell.
