Samsung downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Shawn Kim downgraded Samsung to Equal Weight with a lowered price target of 2.8M won. NAND prices started to reverse in Q4 while visibility on DRAM supply-demand dynamics has reduced beyond Q1 of 2018, Kim tells investors in a research note. He sees downside risk in Samsung with its memory segment not growing materially next year.

Apple Pay Cash, Samsung Pay not meaningful threats to PayPal, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra notes that in addition to Apple (AAPL) rolling out Apple Pay Cash, Samsung (SSNLF) recently filed a patent to introduce a social payment feature to Samsung Pay. While the analyst does not see these as "meaningful threats" to PayPal (PYPL), which has first-mover advantage, he believes the more important takeaway is validation of the social payments model pioneered by Venmo and the expanding ways in which internet companies are integrating payments to bolster the functionality of their platforms. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $85 price target on PayPal's shares.

Immersion price target raised to $15 from $12 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss raised his price target for Immersion (IMMR) to $15 after the company reached a global settlement with Apple (AAPL). The analyst estimates the settlement is likely in the $25M-$30M per year range in fees to Immersion. He believes Apple alone can get the company to 60c in non-GAAP earnings per share. Further, the Apple settlement could "trigger a quick succession" of settlements with other pending lawsuit customers including Samsung (SSNLF), Motorola (MSI), and Fitbit (FIT), Stoss tells investors in a research note. He believes Immersion's earnings per share could be $1.50-$1.80, and the stock price above $20, if everybody signs a settlement. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Immersion. The stock in morning trading is up 41%, or 3.00, to $10.34.

Mizuho remains a buyer of Micron after Samsung results, DRAM/NAND pricing
Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh notes that January DRAM contract prices up 5% month over month, with expectation of March quarter pricing up 5%, while NAND pricing continues to rise up 0%-3% month over month for SLC NAND in January. Additionally, the analyst points out Samsung (SSNLF) reported results last night and noted its Q1 DRAM supply could slow down with Line 11 conversions, while full year DRAM supply demand is "sound." Rakesh sees this as overall positive for peer Micron (MU) and remains a buyer of the stock.

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.
