Microsoft building for Cloud business larger than most expect, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Mark Moerdler notes that Microsoft (MSFT) has a much larger datacenter footprint compared to its peers such as AWS (AMZN) and Google (GOOG;GOOL). Looking at datacenter investment, the analyst thinks Microsoft is building for Cloud business larger than most expect, growth in Azure and Commercial Cloud should continue to remain strong, and given Microsoft Commercial cloud is already at AWS like GM, it should have even better GM as they fill into the built capacity. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $100 price target on Microsoft's shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

Microsoft (MSFT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Joseph Bonner saying Microsoft is positioned to grow its commercial revenue within its "massive" commercial user base. 2.

Microsoft price target raised to $100 from $95 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead raised his price target for Microsoft to $100 saying he feels "incrementally better" after speaking to management. The consensus outlook among investors long the stock is for fiscal 2019 free cash flow of around $5.25 per share, and a multiple on that of 18-20 times yields the $100-plus price targets, Keirstead tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Buy rating on Microsoft.

Nomura sees Tesla selling all it can produce after Model 3 sedan spin
In a research note titled "Better Than Advertised," Nomura Instinet Romit Shah says he left test driving Tesla's (TSLA) Model 3 sedan feeling the automaker will be selling as many cars as it can produce for a long time. Taking the sedan for a spin reinforced the analyst's view that Tesla's addressable market opportunity is "perhaps much larger" than the BMW 3-series, Mercedes C class and Audi A4. There is a "real passion" for the brand, which is "bigger than loyalty because much of the enthusiasm comes from people who have never owned a Tesla," Shah tells investors in a research note. The only comparable product the analyst sees is Apple's (AAPL) iPhone. Apple succeeded because the world shifted from computers to smartphones and Apple had the best product, the analyst writes. Similarly, he believes there is a secular shift today from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles and that Tesla has the best product. If Tesla can overcome its operational challenges, it will see "unprecedented revenue growth and strong cash flows," Shah concludes. He has a Buy rating on Tesla with a $500 price target. The automaker closed yesterday down $1.66 to $304.39.

Apple holiday season expected to be strong, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst T. Michael Walkley said his North American survey indicates strong initial demand for the iPhone X with decreasing lead times, which suggests ramped up production. He believes Apple continues to grow its market share of the premium tier smartphone market with an installed base that will drive strong replacement sales and earnings as well as cash flow generation to fund long-term capital gains. Walkley reiterated his Buy rating and $195 price target on Apple shares.

Snap downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Eric Sheridan downgraded Snap (SNAP) to Sell and cut his price target for the shares to $7 from $12 following last night's Q3 results. The camera company is down 19%, or $2.88, to $12.24 in premarket trading. In a post-earnings research note titled "SNAP Crackle Flop," Sheridan says he finds it very likely that Snap will continue to struggle on "multiple fronts" in the coming 12 months. A redesigned app could bring opportunity but also platform disruption, Sheridan writes. He believes trying to scale its ad business amid "tepid" user growth while competing against Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Amazon.com (AMZN) is likely going to prove difficult for Snap.

Nonethless, the analyst says that while Yelp has divested of Eat24, he sees its go-forward business as remaining challenged by the likes of Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG; GOOGL), and now to a lesser extent, Snap (SNAP). He reiterates a Neutral rating on Yelp's shares.
