21st Century Fox price target raised to $40 from $34 at Wells Fargo

Piper sees potential Fox deal as 'clear positive' for Disney
Piper Jaffray analyst Stan Meyers weighs in on Disney's (DIS) talks with 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to acquire Fox's film and TV studio, its Sky stake, Star India and some U.S. cable networks. A decision is likely by the end of 2017, the analyst points out. A deal would give Disney an opportunity to add to its "rich" intellectual property assets, evolve the Marvel Cinematic Universe, improve leverage with key counterparts and diversify its revenue streams away from the Pay TV ecosystem, Meyers tells investors in a research note. He estimates the deal size to be roughly $44B. The analyst sees the potential transaction as a "clear positive" for Disney. Meyers keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $120 price target.

21st Century Fox price target raised to $36 from $29 at B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Barton Crockett raised his price target for 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to $36 citing recent reports that Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA), Verizon (VZ) or Sony (SNE) may make offers for the company. The "formerly unthinkable" prospect of Rupert Murdoch selling assets is likely to be factored into the equity price for some time, Crockett tells investors in a research. He keeps a Neutral rating on Fox given the stock's proximity to his new target.

Jefferies sees Disney, not Comcast, as more likely Fox suitor
Amid press reports that suggest Comcast (CMCSA) continues to pursue 21st Century Fox (FOXA) along with Disney (DIS), Jefferies analyst John Janedis says he sees Disney as the more likely suitor given the regulatory concerns with a Comcast deal. The analyst believes Comcast would need to offer a premium to Disney for Fox to compensate for more regulatory risk. However, assuming Comcast has interest in the same assets as Disney, and using the same $66B value for Fox's assets, the analyst estimates the deal would be high-single-digit dilutive to Comcast earnings, versus neutral to Disney due to relative tax rates.

BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman raised his price target on Teradata (TDC) to $40, saying the company's turnaround is driven by the buying capacity of existing customers. While Bachman believes the recurring product revenue growth is sustainable, he sees Oracle (ORCL) and VMware (VMW) as more attractively valued, keeping a Market Perform rating on Teradata.

Oracle assumed with a Neutral from Buy at UBS
UBS analyst Jennifer Swanson Lowe downgraded Oracle to Neutral and lowered her price target for the shares to $55 from $57 after assuming coverage of the name. The analyst believes the stock at current levels leaves little room for error as the company transitions to the cloud. Further, she believes Street estimates do not fully reflect the near-term risk to margins or growth as the model shifts.

Oracle price target lowered to $53 from $56 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Ross MacMillan lowered his price target on Oracle to $53, saying that his proprietary customer survey suggests that the company's cloud revenue and margins are slightly below consensus. MacMillan says that while the findings suggest that many of Oracle's customers find its technology stack remains relevant, modeling modest spending increases over the next 3 years, many customers also indicate that they do not use Oracle cloud services today and are unlikely to do so in the future. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Oracle, forecasting a 12% revenue growth and 42% operating margins.

Baird identifies 13 areas of opportunity for Blockchain technology
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian has identified 13 areas of opportunity for Blockchain technology to have an impact. He sees Blockchain as platform enhancing in IoT, virtual goods, cloud storage, online gaming, and eSports. He sees the Blockchain as platform disruptive in online marketing, e-commerce, ride-sharing, digital music/media, and peer-to-peer payments. Sebastian believes technology companies will be talking more about it as they become more engaged in the areas he has mentioned and noted companies such as Amazon (AMZN), Oracle (ORCL) and VMware (VMW) have already recruited engineers with Blockchain experience.

As reported previously, Baird analyst Catherine Ramsey Schulte upgraded Illumina to Outperform from Neutral. The analyst cited its near-term visibility while working through its NovaSeq backlog, the potential for S4 to drive the next few quarters, better than expected performance of sequencing consumables, and optimism surrounding the market opportunity for NovaSeq in both instruments and consumables. Schulte raised her price target to $228 from $184 on Illumina shares.

Pressure on Illumina shares 'overdone,' says Cowen
Cowen analyst Doug Schenkel notes that while Illumina beat Q3 revenue, margin and EPS expectations with NovaSeq placements as expected and consumables revenue driving the beat, he felt that the composition of the beat and order commentary could limit upside. Further, he believes there is some misinformation that seems to be further weighing on shares. While pointing out that no guidance was provided on Q4 NovaSeq orders, Schenkel highlights that management guidance assumes that NovaSeq placements increase in Q4 versus Q3 and Illumina's HiSeq X analogy was meant to be backward, not forward looking. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $230 price target on the shares.
