Intel security vulnerability 'brings the stock to earth', says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Stein keeps his Hold rating and $43 price target on Intel (INTC) in the wake of its security flaw disclosure. Stein says the rally in the stock since Q3 report was overdone to the upside, adding that the latest downside reaction, though likely overdone, puts the price around appropriate valuation. The analyst contends that consumers may favor alternative providers for parallel workload acceleration over Intel's solutions, adding that its latest issues strengthen his view on NVIDIA (NVDA).

Report caused confusion about Micron, Intel 3D NAND pact, says Needham
Following a media report about Micron (MU) and Intel (INTC) parting ways in the co-development of 3D NAND, Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill spoke with Micron CFO Ernie Maddok at CES. Gill believes the report caused some confusion and he said the only change to their NAND agreement is that the two companies will go their separate ways in the development of fourth generation 3D NAND IP. Micron management's view is this is a "no-brainer," as being able to develop unique IP should allow the company to broaden its addressable market by 2021, said Gill, who added that the current pact is very strict on the usage of the co-developed IP and he sees no risk of Intel licensing to Chinese manufacturers. The analyst, who also believes current NAND pricing decline concerns are overblown, keeps a Buy rating and $76 price target on Micron shares.

Ulta rises after Monness Crespi calls company a better Amazon 'target'
Pre-market strength in shares of Ulta Beauty (ULTA) is being attributed to a suggestion made by an analyst at Monness Crespi that the company could be a better M&A fit for Amazon (AMZN) than Target (TGT). AMAZON ALTERNATIVES: In a note to investors this morning, Monness, Crespi, Hardt analyst James Cakmak noted the speculation that has swirled since Amazon's deal to buy Whole Foods about what categories and kinds of companies the e-commerce giant might acquire. He also noted that Target (TGT) most recently "has been floated as a prospect," but he doesn't see how such a deal would "change the game" in terms of pricing and selection for Amazon. Beauty is a category important for Amazon, and Ulta Beauty could be an M&A fit, Cakmak said. Lyft would also makes sense, as would a purchase of Costco (COST), even though that hypothetical deal "is highly unlikely," Cakmak also told investors. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Cakmak's note appears to be in response to Loup Venture's Gene Munster having said yesterday that Amazon may be eyeing Target as its next major retail acquisition. PRICE ACTION: In pre-market trading, Ulta is up $4.78, or 2%, to $249.90 per share.

Further, Nagel expects continued solidifying fundamentals to further ease market concerns and support the premium Costco valuation. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Parcel shipping rates should rise over long-term, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry notes that on the back of President Trump's tweet late last week, questions have resurfaced as to whether the USPS has been subsidizing Amazon's (AMZN) logistics costs by charging below market rates in the competitive parcel market, and using its monopoly power in First Class mail to cross-subsidize parcel delivery costs. The analyst believes this is yet another data point that supports her thesis that parcel shipping rates will rise over the long-term as she sees the potential for Postal Reform to be addressed by Congress in 2018. Landry thinks it is only a matter of time before the USPS is forced to raise rates in its package business, which would be a clear positive for FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS).

Negative sentiment shift a concerning sign for UPS, says Morgan Stanley
Following recent media reports of service issues at UPS (UPS), Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker analyzed Google searches and online sentiment regarding the company and found a sharper than usual increase in negative sentiment regarding the brand, while finding similar to normal seasonal patterns for competitor FedEx (FDX). The analyst does not think higher volumes, which are the likely cause of the service issues, are necessarily a net positive, as the cost associated with moving the higher volumes could be a significant headwind and the issues could exacerbate any potential share loss headwinds also. Shanker, who concludes that it "could be a challenging quarter" for UPS, keeps an Underweight rating on the stock.

The analyst's earnings estimates for UPS have been revised 10% higher to reflect the passage of corporate tax reform. He also estimates that tax reform equates to about $1B of incremental free cash flow per annum. 5% cash tax rate. Mehrotra believes UPS shares are underappreciated and he maintains a Buy rating on the name.

Citi says all Transports win under U.S. tax bill
The Tax Cut and Jobs Act drives a "meaningful step up" in earnings as well as free cash flow for essentially all names in Transportation, Citi analyst Christian Wetherbee tells investors in a research note. He sees U.S. Rails as likely the biggest winners from tax reform. In most cases companies will use the cash "windfall" for buybacks, Wetherbee tells investors in a research note. He believes, however, that a compelling case can be made for U.S. Rails to increase dividends by 15%-20%. The free cash flow windfall could save UPS's (UPS) buyback program, which looked likely to decline in 2018 under the weight of accelerating capex, the analyst adds. Wetherbee upgraded C.H. Robinson Worldwide (CHRW) to Buy and downgraded Schneider National (SNCR) to Neutral. He also raised his price target for Buy-rated FedEx (FDX) to $304 from $280, Buy-rated CSX (CSX) to $64 from $58 and for Buy-rated UPS to $143 from $128.
