Google Fiber says in a blog post that "We're excited to announce that Access has a new leader to move the Google Fiber and Webpass businesses forward.

Craig-Hallum remains a buyer of Nutrisystem as Google trends continue to lag
Craig-Hallum analyst Alex Fuhrman says Nutrisystem (NTRI) Google (GOOG; GOOGL) trends continue to lag, setting up a buying opportunity despite mixed indicators. Mixed indicators suggest the Nutrisystem brand is not likely to accelerate revenue growth in 2018 from 2017's 23% levels, however the analyst believes there is still strong potential to exceed his estimate of about 11% growth for the brand in 2018. He reiterates a Buy rating and $80 price target on Nutrisystem's shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) was downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein and to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc. 2. Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt citing fourth quarter results and saying he has some longer-term concerns around competition from Amazon (AMZN), Google Cloud Platform market share, regulatory risk and rising traffic acquisition cost. 3. Hershey (HSY) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Robert Moskow saying the stock deserves a "more narrow" valuation premium to food peers than in the past due to the deceleration of its growth rate and the stagnation of its profit margin. 4. Impinj (PI) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Dougherty, to Hold from Buy at Needham and Canaccord, and to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital. 5. Tractor Supply (TSCO) downgraded to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Elizabeth Suzuki saying the fourth quarter results were strong, but the outlook for 2018 was disappointing as management outlined expectations for operating margin compression and a store growth trajectory. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Outperform
Alphabet price target raised to $1,400 from $1,350 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju attributes greater than expected marketing spending to promote growth in hardware, cloud, and YouTube as driving the shortfall in Alphabet's operating profit compared to estimates, though he said investors should be "happy to underwrite the incremental marketing and capex" spending in pursuit of the longer-term opportunity. As bright spots in the quarter, Ju points to the company's disclosure that Google's Cloud business is now at a $1B per quarter run rate and likely growing well in the triple-digit range and the fact that device shipments in the hardware business are also growing over 100%. Ju raised his price target to $1,400 and keeps an Outperform rating on Alphabet shares.

YouTube, investments make execution critical to Alphabet, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said Alphabet's core websites ad business in mobile and desktop continue to impress, but its Q4 results also speak to areas that need improvement, pointing to the slowing seen at YouTube. Nowak thinks the company's investments are correct and necessary, but he also believes investors will hold Alphabet accountable by expecting it to execute on these initiatives and show higher long-term earnings power, he tells investors. Nowak keeps an Overweight rating on Alphabet but trimmed his price target to $1,200 from $1,215.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,300 from $1,220 at Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,300, citing strong growth in mobile search as well as "significant revenue growth" from the company's next-generation businesses - YouTube, Google Cloud, and Google Play. The analyst contends that Alphabet is navigating the desktop-to-mobile paradigm shift successfully while adding that the stock valuation is attractive against the backdrop of rapidly expanding business.
