News Corp. chairman Murdoch makes case for carriage fee for trusted publishers

News Corp. (NWSA) issued the following statement from Executive Chairman, Rupert Murdoch: ""Facebook and Google have popularized scurrilous news sources through algorithms that are profitable for these platforms but inherently unreliable. Recognition of a problem is one step on the pathway to cure, but the remedial measures that both companies have so far proposed are inadequate, commercially, socially and journalistically. There has been much discussion about subscription models but I have yet to see a proposal that truly recognizes the investment in and the social value of professional journalism. We will closely follow the latest shift in Facebook's strategy, and I have no doubt that Mark Zuckerberg is a sincere person, but there is still a serious lack of transparency that should concern publishers and those wary of political bias at these powerful platforms. The time has come to consider a different route. If Facebook wants to recognize 'trusted' publishers then it should pay those publishers a carriage fee similar to the model adopted by cable companies. The publishers are obviously enhancing the value and integrity of Facebook through their news and content but are not being adequately rewarded for those services. Carriage payments would have a minor impact on Facebook's profits but a major impact on the prospects for publishers and journalists."

Buy
News Corp. initiated with a Buy at Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Alan Gould initiated News Corp with a Buy and a $17 price target saying he has increased confidence the company will report annual EBITDA growth. Digital Real Estate EBITDA is now growing quicker than News and Information Services is declining, the analyst wrote. Gould now sees EBITDA and operating income growth of 4% and 10% compounded rates, while revenues remain flat due to the mix shift towards digital real estate, which has higher margins.

21st Century Fox downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon downgraded 21st Century Fox to Market Perform and kept his $35 price target following the Disney (DIS) deal announcement. Salmon says he likes the "slimmed-down focus on live news and sports", and contends that a re-combination with News Corp (NWSA) may be logical down the road, but prefers to be more cautious at this juncture amid an uncertain regulatory pathway ahead.

Twitter upgraded to Buy with $30 target at Aegis
As previously reported, Aegis analyst Victor Anthony upgraded Twitter (TWTR) two notches, to Buy from Sell, and set a $30 price target on the stock. Anthony believes 2018 will be an inflection point in owned and operated advertising for Twitter and he sees a return to double-digit growth in that area in 2019. He also sees the potential for improving monthly average user growth, sustained double-digit daily active user growth and thinks the stock could be included in the S&P 500 at some point. Additionally, Anthony sees Facebook's (FB) decision to de-emphasize public content making Twitter a more valuable resource for video and news, making it an even more appealing takeover candidate, he tells investors.

Cost savings emerge as 'killer app' for artificial intelligence, says KeyBanc
Over the past 35 days, KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin hosted meetings at Adobe (ADBE), Autodesk (ADSK), Algorithmia, Cloudera (CLDR), Coupa (COUP), Facebook (FB), Guidewire (GWRE), Netflix (NFLX), NVIDIA (NVDA), Salesforce (CRM), SAP, Synopsys (SNPS), Twilio (TWLO), Tableau (DATA), Talend (TLND), Veeva (VEEV), Workday (WDAY), and Zendesk (ZEN) as part of an AI & Cloud-themed field trip. The analyst notes that cost savings have emerged as the "killer app" for artificial intelligence, and large enterprise interest in migrating back-office apps to cloud has been slow, but is picking up, conversational AI and bot activity is yielding real cost savings. Further, Bracelin sees 2018 as a defining year for enterprise AI applications, and is most impressed by enterprise AI initiatives at Microsoft (MSFT), Zendesk, Guidewire, and Adobe.

Facebook Watch early traction encouraging, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said he was encouraged, and surprised, by the fact that the firm's survey of Facebook users indicated that 40% use Facebook Watch on a weekly basis and 24% are using it on a daily basis. Watch users also appear to skew younger, which is also a positive, as it speaks to the potential for Watch to become a longer-term habit, said Nowak, who keeps an Overweight rating and $215 price target on Facebook shares.

JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says TiVo's (TIVO) expanded agreement with Google (GOOG, GOOGL) to cover the new YouTube TV puts the company in a "great position" to capitalize if subscribers leave larger pay-TV operators for skinny bundles and cord-cutting options. The analyst is "especially excited about this agreement given millennial YouTube content consumption." He keeps an Overweight rating on TiVo shares.

The analyst also notes several of Alphabet's longer-term initiatives such as self-driving cars with Waymo and smart home technology with Nest.

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.

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.
