Intel says progress continues on firmware updates

Intel (INTC) said in a statement that it continues to work closely with industry partners to protect customers against the security exploits disclosed by Google (GOOG) Project Zero. "As I shared January 22, we identified the root cause of the reboot issue affecting the initial Broadwell and Haswell microcode updates," said Intel's Navin Shenoy. "Since then, we've been focused on developing and validating updated microcode solutions for those and other impacted platforms." The company said that production microcode updates released earlier this week will be made available in most cases through OEM firmware updates. The company emphasized how critical it is for everyone to keep their systems up-to-date, saying that research shows there is frequently a substantial lag between when people receive updates and when they actually implement them.

Intel price target raised to $55 from $50 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Ruben Roy raised his price target on Intel to $55 and kept his Buy rating after Q4 earnings. Roy says the company continues to highlight the data-centric portion of its business as it diversifies away from the PC market, which drive Intel to faster longer-term revenue growth at stronger profitability margins. The analyst expects the multiples to follow, noting that the current valuation appears attractive while raising his FY18 EPS view to $3.55 from $3.25.

Intel price target raised to $50 from $43 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Stein raised his price target on Intel to $50 but kept his Hold rating after Q4 earnings, saying the upside seen in the results was a one-off and not likely to recur. Stein says the Data Center Group growth remains "uninspiring" this year, attributing his price target change to more favorable tax rates.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CVS Health (CVS) upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham by analyst Kevin Caliendo, who contended that the stock remains underowned and, unlike its peers, yet to rally beyond the expectations of benefits from the tax changes. The analyst says the company's multiple has remained constant despite the expansion in the rest of the pharma services industry, forecasting EPS growth of 8%-10% beyond the modeled $8 per share in 2019. 2. JetBlue (JBLU) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Jamie Bakier who said the company's costs are "gradually coming under control" and its balance sheet is "sound." The analyst also upgraded United Continental (UAL) to Overweight from Underweight, saying the shares are the "cheapest in the sector and among the most washed out, having declined the most from recent highs." 3. Gilead (GILD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Robyn Karnauskas, who said that tax reform could lower the company's tax rate to 22% in 2018 versus prior estimates of 28%. The analyst also raised her nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and JAK-1 probability of success estimates to 50% with both Phase 3 trials expected in the next 12 months. Further, Karnauskas expects Gilead's hepatitis C virus business to stabilize by mid-2018. 4. Intel (INTC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Christopher Danely, who said overly conservative guidance and poor sentiment from years of underperformance should drive estimates and the stock higher in the near term. He believes management's "new habit" of conservative guidance is good for the stock. 5. Albemarle (ALB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS by analyst John Roberts, who said the stock is down 23% from the November high despite no change to the outlook for lithium. The analyst attributes the pullback to larger scale lithium expansion announcements and raising concerns of potential oversupply. He believes the market is pricing in 10% annual realized price declines for Albemarle over the next few years. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Baird checks show Apple will bring Qorvo in on super PAD
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra say his firm's recent industry checks support the belief Apple (AAPL) will dual source the super PAD in 2018 and bring Qorvo (QRVO) in. Shares of Qorvo are up 37c to $71.04 in midday trading. Apple will have 3.5GHz in the second half of 2018, offering more capacity and benefiting carriers, Gerra tells investors in a research note. He also believes Broadcom (AVGO) is working on custom 802-11.ax for Apple, with Qualcomm (QCOM) being one year behind on .ax. Gerra added that the checks indicate Intel's (INTC) 7560 modem sampling is on track.

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 $1,400 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.

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.

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.

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.
