On The Fly: Top stock stories at midday

Stocks opened little changed and have remained that way throughout the morning. The averages are mixed, with the Nasdaq slightly higher while the Dow and S&P are hugging the flat line. Oil prices are also little changed as the East coast of the U.S. is beginning to see temperatures abate after a two-week deep freeze. Bitcoin prices are lower after reports indicating that authorities in South Korea will inspect the country's major banks for money laundering as part of a probe into cryptocurrencies. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet this morning. This afternoon, a report on consumer credit growth in November is expected at 3 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: Stock futures were little changed throughout the early session, leading to a relatively quiet open for the market despite a notable pick up in the flow of news ahead of the impending start of the earnings season. With earnings approaching, a number of companies have begun to issue pre-announcements on their results. Among those that pre-announced this morning, Kohl's (KSS) was a stand out to the upside, jumping 6% after the retailer said its sales for the holiday period were up almost 7% year-over-year. On the opposite end of the spectrum, GoPro (GPRO) has plunged 19% after cutting its Q4 revenue outlook, reporting it plans to cut its workforce to fewer than 1,000 employees worldwide and stating that it plans to exit the drone market after selling its remaining Karma inventory... Following a Seeking Alpha article attributed with highlighting Seagate's (STX) previous investments in Ripple via early stage fundraising, the company's shares jumped 7% despite the fact that the cryptocurrency was falling sharply. Meanwhile, Susquehanna analyst James Friedman upgraded Western Union (WU) to Neutral from Negative, stating that he believes the company may be working with Ripple Labs to potentially implement blockchain applications in remittance. Western Union shares gained 5% after the note linking the financial services company to the cryptocurrency technology provider. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the noteworthy gainers was Nevro (NVRO), which surged 16% after it received FDA approval for its Senza 11 Spinal Cord Stimulation System and after it provided revenue guidance. Also higher was Weight Watchers (WTW), which gained 12% after stakeholder, board member, and spokesperson Oprah Winfrey delivered a particularly buzzworthy speech last night at the Golden Globes. Among the notable losers was Axovant (AXON), which saw its share price cut in half after the company said that its investigational drug intepirdine did not meet its primary efficacy endpoints in Phase 2b studies. Also lower was Dave & Buster's (PLAY), which fell 21% after cutting its fiscal 2017 revenue guidance. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 32.58, or 0.13%, to 25,263.29, the Nasdaq was up 14.08, or 0.2%, to 7,150.64, and the S&P 500 was down 0.37, or 0.01%, to 2,742.78.

TJX stands to benefit from Bon-Ton closures, says Morgan Stanley
After analyzing which department stores and off-price retailers have the greatest overlap with troubled retailer Bon-Ton Stores (BONT), Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger found that over 40% of Bon-Ton's have a TJX (TJX) concept within a one mile radius and she sees it as the retailer that could benefit the most from a Bon-Ton liquidity event. Though Sears (SHLD) has the greatest overlap overall, there is no evidence to suggest it, nor Kohl's (KSS) and J.C. Penney (JCP), have been able to capitalize on Bon-Ton's struggles so far, added Greenberger.

Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger said that overall retail traffic appeared solid following Christmas, adding that store checks and third party data points suggest better performance at Kohl's (KSS) and Macy's (M) than she originally anticipated. Greenberger raised her Q4 Kohl's comparable sales estimate to down 1% from down 3% and increased her comp sales estimate for Macy's to down 2% from down 2.5%. However, she maintains an Underweight rating on Kohl's shares and an Equal Weight rating on Macy's.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. GoPro (GPRO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst Joe Wittine saying his channel checks confirmed the holidays missed the company's plan and late quarter $100 price cuts were not enough to save the quarter. 2. Snap (SNAP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Brent Thill saying he continues to have optimism around Snap's platform, but believes "fundamental execution needs to be shown" before he can be more positive on the name. 3. Cirrus Logic (CRUS) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst John Vinh citing his "disappointment" with the current iPhone cycle and the lack of meaningful content gains until 2019. 4. Pandora (P) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Benjamin Swinburne 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. 5. GrubHub (GRUB) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush with analyst Aaron Turner saying that while he continues to like the company's market opportunity and competitive positioning, the current peak valuation of shares accurately reflects these positive dynamics.

JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster lowered his price target for GoPro shares to $9 citing today's negative preannouncement. The analyst now assumes lower pricing and gross margins through 2019. Offsetting this somewhat is reduced operating expenses from GoPro's restructuring initiatives, Coster tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. The analyst still believes a return to profitability is probable in 2018. GoPro in morning trading is off the day's lows, but the stock remains down 21% to $5.98.

As previously reported, Longbow analyst Joe Wittine downgraded GoPro to Neutral from Buy, predicting the company will issue a negative preannouncement this week in concert with its appearance at the CES event. His channel checks confirmed the holidays missed the company's plan and late quarter $100 price cuts were not enough to save the quarter, Wittine tells investors. He hoped for a stronger-than-typical Q1 sell-in, but that has also become less likely based on channel inventory, added Wittine.

Cowen says conservatism warranted valuing Seagate stake in Ripple
Following a Seeking Alpha article attributed with highlighting Seagate's previous investments in Ripple via early stage fundraising, Cowen analyst Karl Ackerman said he does not think that the company's investment is worth even half of the $8B the article speculates. He thinks it could be worth as much as $2B on paper, but also tells investors that "a high degree of conservatism should be warranted" given the high volatility of cryptocurrencies and the lack of clarity regarding Seagate's investment objectives. Ackerman keeps a Market Perform rating on Seagate shares, which are up 7% in late morning trading.

The analyst continues to expect limited new DRAM supply until later this year, creating a tight supply/demand environment, and "substantial" new NAND capacity coming online in the first half of the year, driving lower pricing. He views DRAM strength as positive for Micron (MU), and NAND softness as a potential negative for Micron, Western Digital (WDC) and Seagate (STX).

Susquehanna sellers on Seagate strength due to Ripple stake report
Following a report that noted Seagate's investment in Ripple Labs and speculated on the value that the stake could represent, Susquehanna analyst Mehdi Hosseini said he would be a seller on strength that was driven by reports related to Ripple. While the investment in Ripple Labs is "intriguing," Hosseini pointed out that it is an equity investment and not token ownership, meaning the holding is not a source of liquid cash for Seagate. The value of the investment in Ripple Labs is likely to "fluctuate wildly," added the analyst, who keeps a Neutral rating on Seagate shares.

The deal is also a positive for Seagate (STX), according to Ackerman, as it gives that company an opportunity to access NAND supply from Toshiba. The analyst, who maintains an Outperform rating on Western Digital, added that the company's updated guidance proves his prior view that Street estimates were "way too low."

Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan saying she believes the stock still has "significant upside" despite the outperformance in 2017. 3. Flir Systems (FLIR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Michael Ciarmoli citing the company's realigned segment structure under the new management team with a sharper focus on the larger government and industrial end-markets, forecasting outperformance driven by RAID order flow and new Department of Defense procurement initiatives. 4. Applied Materials (AMAT) upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham with analyst Y. Edwin Mok saying he is positive on the company's "balanced WFE exposure across segments" amid the likelihood of moderating NAND growth. 5. Western Union (WU) upgraded to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he believes the company may be working with Ripple Labs to potentially implement blockchain applications in remittance and sees that as a possible accelerator with business-to-business.

Standpoint raises 2018 bitcoin price target to $28,000 from $20,000
Standpoint Research analyst Ronnie Moas this morning raised his 2018 price target for bitcoin to $28,000 from $20,000. Just over a week ago the analyst raised his 2018 target to $20,000 from $14,000. Moas points out that his longer term public target remains $50,000. He points out in an email that unlike the U.S. dollar, where the government can print money, the supply of bitcoin is capped. We are a couple of years away from being in a situation where hundreds of millions of people around the world are trying to get their hands on a few million bitcoin, Moas contends.

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.

Standpoint raises 2018 bitcoin price target to $20,000 from $14,000
Standpoint Research analyst Ronnie Moas raised his 2018 price target for bitcoin to $20,000 from $14,000. The current price is around $10,720 and the split-adjusted price is now $12,740 when factoring in Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Diamond, Moas tells investors in an intraday email. There is "no way to justify" gold investments equaling 40 times than that of bitcoin, the analyst argues. He thinks an argument can be made that bitcoin will be equal to gold in 10-15 years. Currently, gold has $7T in investments to bitcoin's $180B, according to Moas.

Other concerns, such as macroeconomic and credit-related risks, "did not go away when some investors suddenly viewed its shares as a play on a trendy cryptocurrency" following the company's confirmation that it is testing allowing users to buy and sell bitcoin using its app, Palmer tells investors. He has a $30 price target on Square shares, which closed Friday at $48.86.

He also raised his price target on D&B to $97 from $84, on Domino's to $240 from $230 and on Del Taco to $20 from $19.
