Barracuda downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty downgraded Barracuda Networks to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $27.55 from $35 in conjunction with his 2018 annual outlook for Software Technology. The analyst does not expect the "exceptional performance" in Software during 2017 to repeat in 2018. As such, he's moderating his bullish outlook into next year.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Juno Therapeutics (JUNO) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo, with analyst Jim Birchenough saying that while data for JCAR017 continue to support a potential best-in-class profile in aggressive lymphoma, the current valuation already reflects dominant market positioning over Gilead's (GILD) Yescarta. 2. General Dynamics (GD) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan, with analyst Seth Seifman saying Gulfstream questions are unlikely to be resolved in the near term. Demand for G500/600 is ok for now, but uncertainty about ultimate production levels and the pace of the learning curve mean the transition will remain a near term overhang, the analyst said. Seifman also downgraded Raytheon (RTN) to Neutral from Underweight. 3. Adobe (ADBE), Barracuda (CUDA), GoDaddy (GDDY), Fortinet (FTNT) and Check Point (CHKP) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight and CoStar Group (CSGP), Imperva (IMPV) and Monotype Imaging (TYPE) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at JPMorgan by analyst Sterling Auty in conjunction with his 2018 annual outlook for Software Technology. The analyst does not expect the "exceptional performance" in Software during 2017 to repeat in 2018. 4. Spark Therapeutics (ONCE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS, with analyst Carter Gould seeing a "challenging setup" for the shares after the Phase 1/2 SPK-8011 data in hemophilia A fell short of expectations. The analyst removed SPK-8011, or $29 per share, and early-stage pipeline value, or $12 per share, from his model. He finds it difficult to be more constructive on Spark shares in the near-term. 5. Electronic Arts (EA) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs by analyst Christopher Merwin to reflect fewer near-term catalysts around in-game monetization of non-sports titles.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Under Armour (UA, UAA) downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Sam Poser saying the fundamental outlook has not improved since its weak print back in October and he believes the company's brand will continue to weaken before it is clear if it can survive. 2. Principal Financial (PFG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Sean Dargan saying he now prefers Voya Financial (VOYA). 3. AK Steel (AKS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Seth Rosenfeld saying the company's leverage to the current U.S. steel industry up-cycle "may continue to underwhelm." 4. Fortinet (FTNT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Saket Kalia citing the slowing of aggregate firewall product revenue growth across the industry. 5. Barracuda (CUDA) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst Jayson Noland citing the lack of a higher bidder to top Thoma Bravo's previously announced offer of $27.55 per share.

Amazon price target raised to $1,425 ahead of Q4 earnings at Stifel
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt previewed Amazon's Q4 earnings report, expected in early February, telling investors he expects healthy e-commerce holiday sales, continued momentum in Prime adoption and continued strength in AWS. Beyond the quarter, he sees Amazon as well positioned for 2018 and 2019 given strength in e-commerce, cloud, smart speakers and voice), international growth and new product categories like grocery. Devitt raised his price target on Amazon shares to $1,425 from $1,313 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Amazon's AWS still the leading public cloud offering, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson reported that the firm's 2018 survey of CIOs shows that Amazon's (AMZN) AWS remains the leading public cloud offering in terms of revenue and scale and is tied with Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure for mindshare, which is a change from last year when AWS had lost some mindshare amid "early-2017 hype" regarding the maturation of Azure's offering. 90% of CIOs surveyed intend to increase AWS spending in 2018, which is up from 87% in 2017, Olson added. Azure maintained mindshare and Google Cloud Platform (GOOG) saw a significant step up in mindshare, while smaller cloud providers rapidly lose mindshare, noted Olson.

Piper Jaffray analyst Sam Kemp raised his price target on Alphabet (GOOG) to $1,300, saying Google Cloud Platform is gaining mindshare from smaller competitors in the public cloud space amid "ongoing feature improvements, accompanying platform evangelism, and adoption by younger companies". The analyst contends that as a #3 player in the field behind Amazon's (AMZN) AWS and Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure, GCP can still create "meaningful shareholder value" within the accelerating cloud environment. Kemp keeps his Overweight rating on Alphabet.

Morgan Stanley most bullish on Amazon in large-cap internet
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak issued his 2018 outlook for U.S. internet names, saying among the large caps he is bullish on Amazon (AMZN) as he sees growing high margin revenues leading to upward revisions of estimates for the company. He is also positive on Facebook (FB), contending that core Facebook ad unit pricing can rise over 20% in 2018 and Instagram can add about $16B in ad revenue. Nowak also keeps an Overweight rating on Alphabet (GOOG), as he expects innovation to drive beats on revenue and profits. He has a $1,250 price target on Amazon, $215 price target on Facebook and a $1,210 target on Alphabet.
