Outperform
Merits of antitrust case favor AT&T, says Baird
Baird analyst William Power noted the DOJ sued to block the AT&T (T) and Time Warner (TWX) deal largely on the grounds that the merger would harm consumers due to higher content prices. The analyst finds it difficult to believe that, given other competition, the company would be able to significantly raise pricing for Turner properties or HBO and risk driving away current partners. He said although his thesis is at risk from the suit, he ultimately believes the merits of the case favor AT&T. Power reiterated his Outperform rating and $42 price target on AT&T shares.

AT&T price target lowered to $42 from $45 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal lowered his price for AT&T (T) shares target to $42 after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to block the company's acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). The analyst notes he didn't lowered his target post the Q3 video miss given the pending deal. He believes the shares have "room to run" with or without Time Warner and keeps a Buy rating on AT&T.

Q3 results, analysis of Q4 viewership trends show some bright spots, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves notes that the Department of Justice's decision to sue to block AT&T (T)/Time Warner (TWX) seems likely to halt additional M&A until a resolution is reached. Additionally, the analyst points out that Q4 viewership trends appear most positive for Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB) so far, and 21st Century Fox (FOXA) remains his favorite long among TV network stocks.

Jefferies sees Aetna trading at 10% discount to deal price
Jefferies analyst David Windley sees Aetna (AET) trading at a 10% spread to the $207 per share price paid by CVS Health (CVS) given the deal's "regulatory hurdles." The analyst sees Aetna trading today to $186 per share. Aetna in premarket trading is up 3%, or $5.99, to $187.30. Windley raised his price target for the stock to $194 from $185 and keeps a Hold rating on the name. The Department of Justice's stance on another major vertical integration, AT&T's (T) acquisition of Time Warner (TWX), suggests the CVS, Aetna transaction could face "significant scrutiny," Windley tells investors in a research note. He believes the regulatory cycle will likely take 9-12 months and may require some Part D divestitures.

Micron multiple should rise as investors appreciate secular shift, says Needham
Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill noted that Micron is trading well below its historical average P/E multiple of 8-10x, but thinks its multiple should rise as investors come to understand how the company benefits from the secular transition away from PCs and smartphones to high-performance computing applications, which brings with it higher capacity and favorable pricing. Gill maintains a Buy rating and $76 price target on Micron following the company's "record" quarter and guidance.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nomura Instinet with analyst Jeffrey Kvaal saying the stock's gains for the iPhone X "supercycle are in the late innings." 2. Hanesbrands (HBI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Kate McShane saying the U.S. wholesale environment remains challenging due to declining traffic trends in stores and price-based competition in all channels. 3. PPL Corp. (PPL) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Macquarie with analyst Angie Storozynski saying she thinks the next UK regulatory review will result in a meaningful drop in revenues and believes the high dividend debate will come back into focus. 4. Chubb (CB) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Ryan Tunis noting that while the integration of ACE Limited (ACE)/Chubb has been successful and positions the latter well for the future, the analyst argues that it is difficult for him to solve for much upside to medium term earnings per share and shares with the integration coming to a close in the fourth quarter. 5. KB Home (KBH) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Michael Rehaut citing valuation with the shares up 100% in 2017.

Nomura downgrades Apple with share gains in 'late innings'
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal downgraded Apple to Neutral from Buy and cut his price target for the shares to $175 from $185. The iPhone maker closed yesterday up $2.45 to $176.42. The stock's gains for the iPhone X "supercycle are in the late innings," Kvaal tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes iPhone unit growth is well anticipated by consensus estimates and that Apple's multiple is now "historically full." Kvaal believes now is the time to downgrade the shares but admits Apple's "user base and services growth are powerful tailwinds."

iPhone X helping Apple accelerate share gains in China, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said new data through the first 16 days of iPhone X availability in China show that adoption of the high-end device is on a faster pace than the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, which she sees fueling an acceleration of Apple smartphone share gains. The analyst, who also noted that Google Trends data corroborate iPhone strength in China, said Apple remains her top pick entering 2018 and she keeps an Overweight rating on the stock with a $200 price target.

Intel price target raised to $50 from $45 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore raised his price target for Intel to $50 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst expects "secular growth hopes" in the semiconductor space to continue in 2018, but be increasingly offset by slowing sector-wide growth and potential compression in "somewhat elevated" valuations. His top picks in the space are Intel, Inphi (IPHI), Maxim Integrated (MXIM), MaxLinear (MXL) and Microsemi (MSCC).

Intel price target raised to $50 from $45 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah raised his price target for Intel to $50 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Consensus is overly focused on earnings headwinds from depreciation and lower investment income while underappreciating the company's expense leverage, Shah tells investors in a research note. He believes expense leverage, coupled with "substantially" higher free cash flow, should re-rate Intel higher in 2018.

Nielsen (NLSN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Jason Bazinet saying cost cuts and better sales results will help Nielsen generate better results in 2019 and 2020. 3. Anadarko (APC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Phillip Jungwirth saying the company's outlook suggests competitive growth, free cash flow, and shareholder returns over a multi-year span, adding that a WTI crude oil price of $55-$60/barrel can help the company generate a 3.5%-6.5% free cash flow yield by 2020. 4. Intel (INTC) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at Daiwa. 5. Square (SQ) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Stephen Richardson saying he believes Square's new products, with omnichannel capabilities, should help its upmarket progression.
