Apple survey points to improved demand since iPhone X launch, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich talked about the rumor of Apple supply chain cuts, but said according to the UBS Lab analysis that iPhone demand appears to have improved post the iPhone X launch. The analyst said this provides confidence in his estimates and could mean upside to average sale prices given the higher implied mix for the iPhone X. Milunovich reiterated his Buy rating and $190 price target on Apple shares.

Fitbit invests $6M in glucose tracking startup Sano, CNBC reports
Fitbit (FIT) has invested $6M in startup company Sano, which makes a coin-sized patch for tracking blood sugar, as the wearable device company looks to expand into health solutions, CNBC reports, citing CEO James Park. The move comes as Apple (AAPL), which makes the Fitbit competitor Apple Watch, has a research team developing a noninvasive glucose reader. Reference Link

Cirrus Logic downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh downgraded Cirrus Logic (CRUS) to Sector Weight citing his "disappointment" with the current iPhone cycle and the lack of meaningful content gains until 2019. While iPhone X supply has improved meaningfully and remains very lean, feedback indicates sell-through has been somewhat disappointing, Vinh tells investors in a research note following his monthly surveys. The analyst recommends investors continue to own Apple (AAPL), Broadcom (AVGO) and Skyworks (SWKS).

Pandora downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne downgraded Pandora (P) to Equal Weight from Overweight, noting that the company's core free product has not evolved meaningfully and faces continued innovation by Spotify, Apple (AAPL) and Amazon (AMZN) while also being pressured by free music available on Google's (GOOG) YouTube. While engagement is challenged, is increasingly clear that consumers' willingness to accept more ads is limited, which also puts pressure on monetization and means growing ad revenue in 2018 is "no longer a given," he tells investors. Swinburne lowered his price target on Pandora shares to $6 from $12.

JPMorgan sees 'too many risks,' cuts GE price target to $16
JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa says he sees "too many risks" to change his view on shares of General Electric. The analyst keeps an Underweight rating on the name and cut his price target for the stock to $16 from $17. There is no other company in the sector where earnings and free cash expectations were cut by 50% last year, Tusa tells investors in a research note. GE's leverage remains high and one-third of its core business lacks a "credible turnaround plan in the face of a dramatic fundamental shift," Tusa writes.

Honeywell price target raised to $171 from $154 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch raised his price target for Honeywell (HON) to $171 following recent meetings with management. The shares closed yesterday up 77c to $150.43. The target represents a 20 times forward multiple to the analyst's 2019 earnings forecast. Inch continues to believe Honeywell could become the "next multi-industry investment leader" over the coming decade as General Electric (GE) "further retrenches to preserve cash." Honeywell can pivot towards faster growth with a balance sheet that allows for billions in future growth investments, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Deutsche concerned Ed Garden won't stay long on GE board
If Trian were to significantly reduce its ownership stake in General Electric in the coming year, from just the 80 basis points of shares it owns now, Ed Garden would likely be forced to step down from the company's board, Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch tells investors in a research note titled "GE Board risk." The analyst believes Trian could realize incremental pressure to reduce or exit its GE position, especially if the stock, as Inch expects, struggles to gain upward traction. Garden leaving the board would create "substantial headline risk," particularly given the public vote of confidence that new GE CEO John Flannery has placed in him, the analyst contends. As such, Inch sees risk that Garden may not end up serving on GE's Board over the long term. The analyst believes his selection to the board raises some questions given Trian's relatively small stake in GE. Were there not other equally qualified candidates with more prospective longevity for the position versus a hedge fund executive whose firm owns just 80 basis points of the stock, Inch asks. The analyst keeps a Sell rating on GE with a $15 price target. The shares closed yesterday up 26c to $17.97.

GE could exit Baker Hughes in 2018, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch believes General Electric (GE) could exit its 62.5% ownership of Baker Hughes (BHGE) sometime in 2018. The eventual monetization and separation of GE's entire oil and gas portfolio would be consistent with management's signaling regarding its investment in Baker Hughes, Inch tells investors in a research note. GE's exit timing may not be optimal, however, considering that the pickup in industry activity is likely to continue given improved energy prices, the analyst contends. He adds that GE would forego $188M of dividend from Baker Hughes and any future additional share repurchase benefit by the company. Inch has a Sell rating on GE with a $15 price target.

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.

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.

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.
