Nuance brings virtual assistant 'Jess' to Facebook Messenger

Nuance Communications (NUAN) announced Jetstar has extended the deployment of web virtual assistant "Jess" to Facebook Messenger (FB) to offer more points of contact for its customers to engage. Powered by AI-driven virtual assistant, Nuance Nina, Jess is now capable of providing real-time conversations on Facebook Messenger to resolve customer queries across Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. As the first airline in Asia Pacific to extend the same AI-powered virtual assistant from web to Facebook Messenger, Jetstar is providing a contemporary digital experience for its highly mobile customer base. Jess is now able to assist Jetstar's Facebook fans quickly and conveniently through retrieving customer bookings, resending itineraries and adding baggage to bookings, amongst a range of other 'smart' features. Through Facebook Messenger, Jess is already showcasing results by achieving an impressive 73% first-contact resolution when inbound traffic quadrupled during the recent volcanic activity of Mount Agung in Bali.

Overweight
Nuance upgraded ahead of expected return to growth at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Sanjit Singh upgraded Nuance to Overweight from Equal Weight, citing his view that Nuance is set to deliver positive organic growth through FY20. He believes contributions from auto, virtual assistants and Dragon Med Cloud will offset declines in Nuance's legacy segments, he tells investors. A growth inflection should lead to a rerating of the shares, which currently trade at a 34% discount to peers, noted Singh, who keeps an $18 price target on Nuance.

Overweight
In-line guidance likely good news for Nuance, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Sanjit Singh attributes recent weakness in Nuance shares to concerns about its upcoming quarterly report and guidance, as well as the lack of an update on a new CEO. However, he predicts the results and FY18 guidance will come in largely in-line with expectations, which he thinks will be a positive for the stock. Singh maintains an Overweight rating and $18 price target on Nuance shares.

Nuance sentiment seems 'washed out,' says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Nandan Amladi views investor sentiment on Nuance Communications as "washed out" into the company's Q4 results tomorrow. The shares have remained flat for the year while the Software sector has appreciated over 30%, Amladi tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The analyst, however, sees "reasons to remain optimistic." While the late June malware attack set back revenue growth for fiscal 2018, Nuance's bookings will "remain healthy," Amladi writes. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $23 price target.

Deutsche Bank analyst Nandan Amladi says Nuance Communications posted a "nice beat" last night. The analyst upped his price target for shares to $25 from $23 and reaffirms a Buy rating on the name. Commentary on the pipeline and bookings suggest Nuance has regained its footing, Amladi tells investors in a post-earnings research note.

Facebook price target raised to $250 from $230 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney raised his price target on Facebook to $250 and kept his Outperform rating after a "very strong" Q4. Mahaney says the company's growth trends remained "very impressive" and also cites the management's expectations that News Feed changes promoting "meaningful interaction" will not have a negative impact on advertising revenue growth - a notion with which he agrees.

Mizuho analyst James Lee raised his price target for Facebook to $250 from $230, citing a "strong finish" to 2017 and implying ARPU at $28 in 2019, which he believes still has a lot of room to grow based the company's optionality. Lee reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

Facebook price target raised to $237 from $215 at Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner raised his price target on Facebook to $237 and kept his Buy rating after Q4 earnings. Bonner contends that while the management decision to enhance user interaction contributed to a 5% decline in time spent on the site in the short term, the value of time spent may actually increase with higher advertising rates as user engagement becomes more relevant. The analyst also believes that Facebook is well positioned to capture the shift of audiences and advertisers to mobile digital video.

Twitter price target raised to $28 from $22 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Twitter (TWTR) to $28 after Q1 results, saying the company has a "clearer strategy" to sustain its revenue momentum thanks to video and AI helping grow mainstream adoption. As top-line pressures fade, writes the analyst in his research note titled "Solid Steps Down Road to Recovery", the stock could become "more interesting", though he is also weary of Facebook (FB) competition still "looming large". Salmon keeps a Market Perform rating on Twitter.
