Akamai price target raised to $57 from $51 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Greg Miller raised his price target on Akamai after stronger than expected Q3 earnings driven by Media performance. The analyst maintains a Hold rating on Akamai due to weak results in the larger Performance/Security business however, noting that the Media business may be volatile.

Limelight Networks geared for larger content than Akamai, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Mark Kelleher compares the networking technology at Limelight Networks (LLNW) versus that of Akamai (AKAM), saying that because Limelight is more centrally organized across its 84 data centers, it can deliver information with less internet congestion. Kelleher notes that he recently discussed the contrast with Limelight CFO Sajid Malhotra, who explained that customers are willing to pay more for this type of content delivery relative to Akamai, which places its Content Delivery Network within the data centers of its ISP partners. While Akamai's CDN is more advantageous for smaller content like web pages, Kelleher says the rapid growth in video is quickly creating congestion problems for its network. The analyst has a Buy rating on Limelight Networks, nudging his price target to $7 from $6 based on the company's return to top-line growth, as well as improved operating margins, cash flow, and positive earnings.

Sanderson keeps his Buy rating on Akamai, adding that management may also discontinue the product segment disclosure in the near future while focusing on the customer segmentation going forward.

Akamai Q4 tracking at or above guidance midpoint, says Piper Jaffray
E-commerce spending is a significant driver for Akamai in Q4 and according to Adobe, U.S. spending grew 18% year-over-year for Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes the "strong start" to the holiday buying period suggests Akamai's Q4 is tracking at or above the midpoint of its $638M-$656M revenue guidance range. The consensus is currently at $648M. Olson keeps an Overweight rating on Akamai and trimmed his price target for the shares to $59 from $60 citing the impact of currency and continued conservatism around ongoing investment in the business.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. J.M. Smucker (SJM) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Pablo Zuanic saying he believes the rout of food stocks is ebbing and since this company is the worst performing stock in his coverage universe, he chose to play the food trade with it. 2. Delek US (DK) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Justin Jenkins saying it will benefit from a wider Brent-WTI spread. 3. Nvidia (NVDA) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at BMO Capital with analyst Ambrish Srivastava saying the company has demonstrated a "far stronger" data center business than he had forecast and its leverage is greater than anticipated. 4. Praxair (PX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Bill Selesky saying the company is well positioned to deliver stronger Earnings Per Share growth thanks to its mix of high-growth businesses driving above-industry-average margins, earnings, and returns on invested capital. 5. TD Ameritrade (AMTD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Brian Bedell saying trading volumes are improving, trade pricing will hold up better than expected and the Scottrade integration is going very well.

Morgan Stanley says TD Ameritrade most likely discount broker to embrace bitcoin
Given recent regulatory approval and the upcoming launch of bitcoin futures trading on CME (CME) and CBOE (CBOE), Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys said he expects discount brokers including E-Trade (ETFC), TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Ally Financial (ALLY) to offer bitcoin futures trading within the next few months. Among them, he views TD Ameritrade as most likely to embrace bitcoin and lead the way and Charles Schwab (SCHW) as likely to be a latecomer. Cyprys added that he was surprised, given its status as a "challenger brand," that E-Trade has said it will take "a wait-and-see" approach.

TD Ameritrade monthly metrics tracking to meet or top Q1 forecast, says SunTrust

Mewhirter says that daily average revenue trades - DARTs - of 759k were up from last month's 680k and also grew on the year from 540k. Likewise, the client asset growth of 2% to $1.16B likely reflects the market appreciation, says the analyst. Mewhirter raises his FY18 EPS view by 2c to $2.42 and FY19 EPS view by 7c to $3.07.

Jefferies says P&G 'win-win' thesis intact after Peltz victory
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy sees Procter & Gamble shares trading up on news of Nelson Peltz claiming a narrow victory following a proxy recount. The analyst says the development fortifies his "win-win" thesis. Either P&G delivers financial results at least in-line with Street expectations or Peltz likely pushes for greater changes at the company, Gruny tells investors in a research note. He reiterates a Buy rating on Procter & Gamble with a $99 price target.

Jefferies likes setup for Procter & Gamble into Q1 results
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy says he likes the setup for Procter & Gamble into the company's Q1 earnings report on October 20. Expectations are low for the quarter, and the company has incentive to deliver strong results amid activist pressure from Trian, Grundy tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. He reiterates a Buy rating on Procter with a $104 price target.

Procter & Gamble price target lowered to $87 from $90 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan called Procter & Gamble's EPS beat "lower quality," noting that the company continues to grow sales below global category growth and that pre-tax income excluding corporate costs declined 3%. Following the report, he kept his FY18 and FY19 EPS estimates largely unchanged, but lowered his price target on P&G shares to $87 from $90 to reflect a lower multiple given the company's weakened fundamentals. Astrachan keeps a Hold rating on the stock.

The analyst, who thinks Aratana's Entyce and Nocita would complement the portfolios of an acquirer, keeps a Buy rating and $8 price target on Aratana shares.

Red Hat, VMware 'most important' to future architectures, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron notes that he attended Amazon Web Services' re:Invent user conference where he conducted a user survey regarding future adoption of public cloud services. The analyst points out that according to the survey, long-term IT architecture plans are tilted heavily toward the public cloud as opposed to a more balanced hybrid cloud approach, the next three years are likely to be a key inflection point for data and applications transfer to the public cloud, and on-premise IT infrastructure vendors are likely to face pressures as the move to public cloud occurs. Within his coverage, users pointed to Red Hat (RHT)/VMware (VMW) as most important to future architectures, with Cisco (CSCO) making progress. Meanwhile, Citrix (CTXS)/HP Enterprise (HPE)/IBM(IBM)/NetApp (NTAP) seem most challenged, Kidron adds.

HP Enterprise risks skewed to the downside, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Wamsi Mohan said the likelihood of large strategic changes occurring following news Meg Whitman is stepping down as CEO is unlikely. Mohan thinks HPE's story has become dependent on a large restructuring and execution and believes risks are skewed to the downside with increased execution risk, lack of positive catalysts, and downside estimate revisions. The analyst reiterates his Underperform rating and trimmed his price target on HP Enterprise to $12 from $13.

HP Enterprise CEO departure not entirely surprising, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr notes that HP Enterprise's Q4 results were modestly disappointing, 2018 was even more notably front end loaded than he had feared, and CEO Meg Whitman announced that she was stepping down effective February 1. While not entirely surprising, the timing felt abrupt in the context of her recent pronouncements that there "was still work to do" and "I am not going anywhere," Sacconaghi argues. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $18 price target on the shares.

Whitman departure a marketing negative for HP Enterprise, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich noted HP Enterprise (HPE) reported a slight beat for Q4 despite fundamentals remaining mixed. The analyst believes CEO Meg Whitman's departure is a marketing negative and that Dell and Cisco (CSCO) are better positioned to serve on-premises computing needs. He also noted 2018 earnings will be back-end loaded and the stock appears fairly valued while lacking a catalyst. Milunovich maintained his Neutral rating and $15 price target on HP Enterprise shares.
