The Intersection: Crypto and Wall Street This Week

As bitcoin, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies get increasing attention from investors, Wall Street and its traditional banks continue to adjust to the shift. Catch up on this week's top stories highlighting the intersection of these old guard and new school areas of finance with this recap compiled by The Fly: 1. S. KOREA LOOKS TO BAN BITCOIN TRADING: South Korea regulators are planning legislation that bans trading of cryptocurrencies, BBC reported Thursday, with several exchanges in the country raided this week on suspicion of tax evasion. South Korea's Justice Minister cites "great concerns" regarding virtual currencies. However, the country's presidential office said a ban has not yet been finalized and is one measure that is being considered. 2. CHINA SEEKS TO CLOSE BITCOIN MINING: Chinese authorities are ordering the closure of operations that produce, or "mine", cryptocurrencies and local regulatory officials across China are complying, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday. The order, which did not set a deadline, comes amid a broader clampdown on cryptocurrencies by China which has already resulted in the shuttering of digital currency exchanges. The country has accounted for roughly 80% of computer power linked to global bitcoin mining over the past 30 days. 3. BUFFETT "WILL NEVER" HOLD: On Wednesday, Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett said his firm is not buying bitcoin, is not shorting bitcoin and "will never hold a position" in the cryptocurrency. "In terms of cryptocurrencies, generally, I can say with almost certainty that they will come to a bad ending," he said, adding, "If I could buy a five-year put on every one of the cryptocurrencies, I'd be glad to do it but I would never short a dime's worth." 4. DIMON REGRETS 'FRAUD' CALL: JPMorgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon said he regrets that he called bitcoin a fraud in September, CNBC reported Tuesday. "The blockchain is real," Dimon said. "You can have cryptodollars in yen and stuff like that. ICOs ... you got to look at every one individually. The bitcoin was always to me what the governments are going to feel about bitcoin when it gets really big. And I just have a different opinion than other people. I'm not interested that much in the subject at all." 5. GUNDLACH SAYS HIGH IS IN: Billionaire investor Jeffrey Gundlach said on Wednesday he believes bitcoin has hit its high. "It's just a thing that is out there, unproven," he said, "I have a theory that bitcoin is very different than what people think... I do not own bitcoin. This type of investment is very, very different from my conservative DNA." 6. GAIN CAPITAL CONTINUES ROLLOUT: On Monday, GAIN Capital (GCAP) announced the launch of Bitcoin trading in Australia and Singapore on the company's City Index branded service, which is regulated by ASIC and MAS, respectively. GAIN plans to complete the global roll out of bitcoin trading in the coming months, launching in other markets in Asia and the United States. The company also plans to expand its cryptocurrency offering to include Ethereum and other digital currencies in early 2018. 7. RIPPLE: On Friday, MoneyGram (MGI) announced a partnership with Ripple to pilot XRP in their payment flows. As part of this agreement, both companies will also explore MoneyGram's integration into Ripple's ecosystem through xVia. XRP's transaction fees are fractions of a penny, compared to Bitcoin fees of about $30 per transaction, and the average transaction time for XRP is two to three seconds. Seagate Technology (STX) invested in both the 2015 $28M Series A and 2016 $55M Series B fundraising rounds conducted by Ripple Labs, developer of XRP, a Seeking Alpha contribitutor was credited with highlight on Monday. Based on some assumptions and data from tech sites, the Seeking Alpha report hypothesized that Seagate may own over 4% of Ripple, worth about $7.8B. 8. KODAKCOIN: On Tuesday, Kodak (KODK) and WENN Digital, in a licensing partnership, announced the launch of the KODAKOne image rights management platform and KODAKCoin, a photo-centric cryptocurrency to "empower photographers and agencies to take greater control in image rights management." The initial coin offering will open on January 31, 2018. 9. BITCOIN STOCK PLAYS: Cryptocurrency revenues have been pointed to as reasons to be bullish on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Nvidia (NVDA) in select research. Overstock (OSTK), Digital Power (DPW), Long Blockchain (LBCC), Seven Stars Cloud Group (SSC), Riot Blockchain (RIOT), Longfin (LFIN), Pareteum (TEUM) and Social Reality (SRAX) are other stocks that have been touted, or promoted themselves, as a way to play the crypto theme. PRICE ACTION: As of time of writing, bitcoin was down roughly 17% this week to $13,674 in U.S. dollars according to CoinDesk. Bitcoin Investment Trust dropped about 10% this week to $1,925.

Piper wonders if Microsoft is better than bitcoin
In a research note titled "Better Than Bitcoin?," Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Zukin updated his investment thesis on Microsoft and formally rolled out estimates for 2019. Azure revenues are still growing close to triple digits and channel checks suggest that the company's pipeline of Office 365 remain robust, Zukin tells investors in a research note. He believes his investment thesis on the shares is resonating and reiterates an Overweight rating on Microsoft with a $115 price target. The software giant closed Friday up $1.08 to $88.19. The analyst calls Azure the "single largest growth opportunity" at Microsoft.

Piper ups Metropolitan Bank estimates on cryptocurrency exposure
Piper Jaffray analyst Matthew Breese raised his earnings estimates for Metropolitan Bank by 6% after the company detailed its exposure to a cryptocurrency exchange. Metropolitan's exposure to a cryptocurrency exchange averaged $245M in Q3, or 16% of total deposits, Breese tells investors in a research note. He estimate these items aggregate to 7% of net interest income and 9%-11% of earnings. Yesterday's disclosure is important on both the impact of earnings, the percentage of deposits tied to one customer, and that the bank has exposure to a "controversial industry," Breese tells investors in a research note. The analyst, despite raising his earnings estimates, keeps a Neutral rating on Metropolitan Bank shares with a $46 price target. He views the company's cryptocurrency exposure as a "double-edged sword for the stock." On the one hand, cryptocurrencies represent a "unique source of potential earnings growth" for Metropolitan, Breese writes. On the other, the volatility and potential regulatory concerns surrounding cryptocurrencies may cause some trepidation for traditional depository investors, the analyst adds.

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.

Axalta remains potential acquisition target, says Citi
Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar expects "significant downward pressure" today in shares of Axalta Coating (AXTA) after AkzoNobel (AKZOY) confirmed that it has walked away from merger talks. When the initial news hit, Axalta shares jumped 17%, or nearly $5 per share, and since then are up another 2%, Juvekar tells investors in a research note. His bear case scenario for the shares if the deal did not happen is $28, or 10.8 times his 2018 EBITDA estimate. The analyst, however, thinks Axalta remains a potential acquisition target given the ongoing consolidation of the paints industry. He still thinks the involvement of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) 10% owner, "is a wildcard." Nonetheless, Juvekar remains concerned about the company's near-term fundamentals and keeps a Neutral rating on Axalta with a $34 price target.

Morgan Stanley says $13.25 'a reasonable ceiling' for Euronet bid for MoneyGram
Morgan Stanley analyst Danyal Hussain contends that the initial $13.25 bid made by Alibaba (BABA) affiliate Ant Financial for MoneyGram (MGI) appears to be "a reasonable ceiling" for a new initial offer from Euronet (EEFT) given that MoneyGram's underlying growth has slowed over the past year and the former no longer appears to be competing against another bidder. However, MoneyGram's risk/reward looks skewed to the downside if Euronet does not follow through with a revised bid and could potentially trade below $10 in such a case, Hussain tells investors. He lowered his price target on MoneyGram shares to $13 from $18 and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares.

After media outlets reported that the U.S. government could block the acquisition of Moneygram (MGI) by Alibaba's (BABA) Ant Financial, DA Davidson analyst Peter Heckmann indicates that such a development would help Euronet (EEFT). He notes that Euronet previously made an unsuccessful bid for Moneygram. He believes that if Euronet is able to acquire Moneygram, the deal would be "transformational" and " would provide visibility to attractive revenue and earnings growth into 2020". Conversely, if Ant acquires Moneygram, Euronet and Western Union (WU) could come under increased pressure, the analyst stated. He keeps a Buy rating on Euronet. .

Predicting semiconductor demand for Ethereum challenging, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Mark Li said that predicting the semiconductor demand for Ethereum is challenging, but he estimates mining GPU demand may fall about 30% year-over-year if Ether prices and mining margins both stay constant. However, semiconductor demand would increase "very rapidly" if Ether prices continue rising. Should the price rise to $5,000 and miners maintain similar margins, mining GPU demand would more than quadruple, theoretically representing as much as 13% upside to NVIDIA (NVDA) revenue in 2018 and 23% of AMD's (AMD), barring supply constraints, Li estimates. Consensus already appears to model a very sharp decline in NVIDIA's crypto-specific revenues, but clarity on what is in AMD models "is harder to say," Li added. He thinks the impact of Ethereum on TSMC (TSM) and memory makers such as Micron (MU) is negligible, noting that they are exposed to much broader applications and bigger markets.

Moore notes that IT customers he's spoken with didn't rule out a 35% impact for some workloads, but said that the mainstream impact on Intel processors would be more on the order of 5%. A 5% performance impact, while significant, is not enough to drive CPU preference to AMD, according to Moore, who adds that if the 35% performance hit were correct it could drive consideration for AMD.

Deutsche expects quick response from Intel on Register story
The Register reported yesterday that Intel (INTC) chips from up to the past 10 years have a critical security flaw that AMD (AMD) chips do not have, Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore tells investors in a research note. The analyst says that while he has no incremental insights on the accuracy of the story, he'd be surprised if such a "fundamental flaw" went unnoticed for the duration that the article is highlighting. Further, if the impact to Intel was known and material, the company would likely have disclosed it earlier, Seymore adds. He expects a response from Intel "to be forthcoming relatively quickly." The analyst has a Buy rating on the shares with a $50 price target. Intel in afternoon trading is down 5% to $44.55 while AMD is up 8% to $11.84.

Overstock.com price target raised to $87 on a potential sale at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte raised Buy rated Overstock's price target to $87 from $57 following management comments indicating it was considering strategic alternatives for its home e-commerce business. The analyst believes there is potential to unlock value in its two most significant assets, home e-commerce and Medici Ventures. Forte said his new price target reflects a $58 valuation for the home e-commerce business and $27 for Medici Ventures.
