Coty may consider acquiring Avon Products, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser speculates that Coty (COTY) may be interested in acquiring Avon Products (AVP). Weiser says Coty has recently added $587M in debt and when asked about it on the earnings call, it claimed it was related to Burberry license acquisition where the payment was only expected to be about $162M. Coty management has also hinted that it intends to grow its EPS by using its balance sheet, says the analyst in her research note. Weiser keeps her Buy rating and $2 price target on Avon, saying the company "represents one of very few ways to gain immediate entry to the Latin American beauty market" while also noting that Coty "raves" about direct-to-consumer sales models.

The analyst notes that service disruptions and investments this year have offset cost reductions, while earthquakes in Mexico will likely weigh on Q4 earnings.

Deutsche incrementally cautious on CyberArk after field discussions
Deutsche Bank analyst Gray Powell says he's incrementally cautious on CyberArk after speaking with a number of contacts in the privileged account management space. The analyst believes the bulk of the PAM market's growth going forward will be driven by mid-market companies that are more price sensitive than larger enterprises. Competition in this segment of the security software market is on the rise and CyberArk will increasingly compete against smaller vendors with cheaper solutions, Powell tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Hold rating on the shares with a $47 price target.

Fortinet, Proofpoint targets raised after positive checks at JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Erik Suppiger said his industry discussions lead him to believe the cyber-security spending environment has been relatively healthy and that security remains top of mind for enterprise buyers. Demand for internal security technologies that monitor and detect intrusions or technologies that add additional layers of security for specific assets is benefiting vendors such as CyberArk Software (CYBR), Proofpoint (PFPT), and Imperva (IMPV), Suppiger said. Given his positive channel checks and an appreciation in valuation multiples, Suppiger raised his price target on Proofpoint to $115 from $95 and on Fortinet (FTNT) to $54 from $41.

Defense earnings, free cash flow should benefit from tax reform, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Douglas Harned believes Defense earnings and free cash flow should benefit substantially in the near-term from Senate and House bills that lower the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20%, as large U.S. defense companies currently pay effective tax rates of 25%-30%. The analyst expects those effective rates to move to a 16%-20% range. Harned prefers Raytheon (RTN) among major U.S. defense contractors, based on international sales, but believes Huntington Ingalls (HII) should benefit most from tax reform and Lockheed Martin (LMT) least.

The analyst views Huntington as an "overlooked value" and believes sentiment on defense stocks is likely to remain strong given a funding uptick in the forthcoming fiscal 2019 defense budget request, lower corporate tax rates, and geopolitical tension.

Aaron's working to leverage Amazon traffic and mindshare, says Northcoast
Northcoast analyst Nick Mitchell said channel work indicates Aaron's (AAN) Progressive segment is working diligently to put together a scalable go-to-market strategy that would allow it to leverage Amazon's (AMZN) traffic and mindshare. The analyst believes Progressive's market leading position will translate into significant growth over the next 5 to 10 years and thinks Amazon could conservatively represent a $240M to $721M inventory outsourcing opportunity, or operating income in the range of $45M to $218M.

According to smartphone data aggregating firm Jiguang, iPhone's overall active smartphone user share downticked in China in early January from recent highs, though iPhone X share gains accelerated in China during the month, Huberty tells investors. While acknowledging that iPhone is not seeing the "supercycle" she previously expected, Huberty still sees 4% total iPhone unit growth to 226M units estimated in FY18 and believes accelerating adoption of the highest end iPhone in China, the world's largest smartphone market, can drive active smartphone market share gains, she said.

Shopify price target raised to $140 from $120 at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Aaron Turner raised his price target for Shopify to $140 from $120 as he continues to view the stock as the top pick in his coverage and believes the company's momentum will continue for the foreseeable future. Further, the analyst believes Shopify is well-positioned to benefit from a long growth runway supported by significant and under-penetrated TAM, multiple growth vectors, and high-caliber managerial capability and execution. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Forte is positive on the company's platform "increasingly becoming a bigger part of the overall business" while also citing the management's view of a growing number of large merchants coming to Shopify from other platforms. The analyst keeps his Neutral rating, noting that the current share price reflects his favorable view of the company.

Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Keane raised his price target for Vantiv (VNTV) to $82 saying the company is well positioned over the medium term to capitalize on the secular shift toward e-commerce/omni-channel acquiring. Vantiv and Global Payments (GPN) are growing both integrated and e-commerce channels "strong double digits," Keane tells investors in a research note on Merchant Acquiring. He has a Buy rating on both names.

The analyst continues to like the merchant acquirer group, Global Payments, First Data (FDC) and Worldpay (WP) heading into 2018. He also raised his price target for First Data to $23 from $21 and for Worldpay to $85 from $77. Greene keeps Outperform ratings on all three names.

Global Payments price target raised to $92 from $85 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Global Payments to $92 ahead of the tomorrow's quarterly earnings report. He keeps a Reduce rating on the name. Deciphering the impact of Accounting Standards Codification 606 on fiscal 2018 growth will be critical as it could create a confluence of two conflicting forces, Dolev tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. Excluding 20%-25% of network fees from sales can drive a 1% drag to North America organic growth, but changing the timing of revenue recognition for certain software revenues can boost growth, the analyst writes. He's hopeful on Global Payments' transparency.

Jefferies analyst John Janedis downgraded Interpublic Group (IPG) to Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $20 from $24. The analyst believes the large U.S-based advertising agencies will continue to see "sub-trend" North America organic growth in 2018 due to competition, fee pressure, end market issues and work moving in-house. He also lowered his price target for Omnicom (OMC) to $72 from $82 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares.

The recent pullback in shares, coupled with data points suggesting an improving demand environment, suggests an attractive risk/reward for the company, Rozwadowski tells investors in a research note. He believes a focus on spectrum deployment and fiber builds should benefit the company on the back of rising U.S. carrier capex.

Hecla Mining upgraded to Buy after post-earnings pullback at Canaccord
As previously reported, Canaccord analyst Dalton Baretto upgraded Hecla Mining (HL) to Buy from Hold, stating that he does not believe the selloff in the stock since the company's Q3 report is justified. Hecla reported strong production, but lower than expected revenue due to timing of shipments, which he expects to reverse next quarter, Baretto tells investors. The analyst, who also views the post-earnings selloff in Pan American Silver (PAAS) as overdone, now has Buy ratings on both miners. He has a $5.25 price target on Hecla and a $23 price target on Pan American.
