Toyota, Pizza Hut partner for fully-autonomous delivery vehicles

Toyota (TM) and Pizza Hut (YUM) have forged a global partnership to explore the future of pizza delivery and other initiatives to improve mobility around the world. Toyota unveiled designs of a self-driving concept vehicle called e-Palette at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and Pizza Hut is one of the founding members of a new "mobility service business alliance" that also includes Amazon (AMZN), Didi, Mazda and Uber. The new mobility service business alliance will leverage Toyota's proprietary Mobility Services Platform to develop a suite of connected mobility solutions and a flexible, purpose-built fully-autonomous vehicle. The alliance will create a broad-based ecosystem of hardware and software support designed to help a range of companies utilize advanced mobility technology to better serve customers. Toyota plans to implement testing of the e-Palette Vehicle Concept in several regions, including the United States, as early as 2020.Along with working together on autonomous delivery solutions, the companies will immediately begin working on plans to improve the existing driver/delivery ecosystem. Starting in early 2018, Pizza Hut and Toyota will jointly test dual communication technology in Pizza Hut delivery vehicles to capture data on driver patterns and behaviors. Better data will result in improved performance for both companies, optimize the safety of delivery, as well as enhance delivery operations.

Demand for Nvidia gaming chips remains strong, says RBC Capital
After conducting checks and reviewing Nvidia's (NVDA) 10-Q, RBC Capital analysts Mitch Steves and Amit Daryanani say that demand for Nvidia's gaming chips "remains healthy" in the midst of strong demand from crypto-currency miners. The analysts add that the company's new deal with Toyota (TM) should boost its selling volumes in 2018-2019, and cause its average selling prices to rise towards the end of that period. They add that sales of the company's Volta chip "are beginning to ramp." The analysts keep an Outperform rating on Nvidia.

Nvidia likely to continue partnering with Tesla, says RBC Capital
After CNBC and other media outlets reported that Tesla (TSLA) would work with AMD (AMD) to improve its self-driving car chips, RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves expects Nvidia to continue to work with Tesla and remain the dominant chip provider to the automaker. He expects "similar dynamics" to play out in the data center space, with AMD "winning some share" in the sector, and Nvidia "remaining as the de-facto standard and market share leader." He notes that Toyota (TM) and Uber both use Nvidia's technology, and he does not expect the loss of share at Tesla to impact the chip maker over the long-term. He keeps an Outperform rating on Nvidia.

Tax reform-driven EPS accretion would be sizeable for restaurant sector, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jeff Farmer says that small cap companies including Del Taco (TACO), Habit Restaurants (HABT), El Pollo Loco (LOCO), Shake Shack (SHAK) and Noodles & Company (NDLS) could see the largest EPS accretion tailwind from a reduced corporate tax rate, with Red Robin (RRGB), Restaurant Brands (QSR), Yum! Brands (YUM) and Bloomin' Brands (BLMN) the companies that could see the smallest tailwind. The analyst notes that recent restaurant sector rally indicates that virtually the entire sector has benefitted from anticipation of potential tax reform, with the most heavily shorted names seeing an amplified share price move.

Potential tax cuts should bode well for restaurants, says Baird
Baird analyst David Tarantino argues that with Congress making progress toward passing a tax package that would reduce rates for corporations and individuals, most restaurant chains should benefit from the reform. As such, the analyst sees potential for investor sentiment toward the group to become more positive if tax cuts actually are enacted, creating a good setup for many stocks heading into 2018. Jack in the Box (JACK), El Pollo Loco (LOCO), Wingstop (WING), Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), McDonald's (MCD), Yum! Brands (YUM), Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), and Texas Roadhouse (TXRH) seem best positioned to show meaningful step-up in comps following tax cuts, he contends.

Shake Shack, Chipotle among tax reform beneficiaries, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Jason West believes tax reform could have a material impact on restaurant EPS and free cash flow since most profits are generated in the U.S. The analyst sees the top tax reform beneficiaries including Shake Shack (SHAK), Chipotle (CMG), Jack in the Box (JACK), Wingstop (WING), and Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), while companies least-benefited by tax reform tend to be global franchisors with already-low tax rates, such as Restaurant Brands (QSR), McDonald's (MCD) and Yum! Brands (YUM).

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.

Sebastian raised his price target for Amazon shares to $1,310 from $1,100 and keeps an Outperform rating on the name.

JPMorgan calls Facebook best idea for 2018, ups target to $230
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth calls Facebook (FB) his best idea for 2018 and raised his price target for the shares to $230 from $225. The social media giant closed Friday up $2.52 to $186.85. The analyst's favorite names for 2018 are Facebook, Priceline (PCLN) and Amazon (AMZN) among large-caps and Twitter (TWTR) and Yelp (YELP) among smid-caps. Facebook continues to show a "rare and impressive" combination of scale, growth and profitability, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects continued strong engagement and highlights the "rapid growth" at Instagram, which he believes could double over time and ultimately approach core Facebook platform scale. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
