Twitter price target raised to $28 from $15 at Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said he underestimated Twitter's (TWTR) turnaround efforts throughout 2017 and he has raised his price target on the stock to $28 from $15 given the company's better revenue outlook and high incremental margins. However, despite Twitter's better than expected results, he still sees the stock being a relative underperformer from current levels when compared to faster growing peers like Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOGL), he tells investors. Nowak keeps an Underweight rating on Twitter.

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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Mahaney saying the fourth quarter revenue and EBITDA were materially better than expected, and while MAU's were below consensus, DAU's grew for the first time at a double-digit rate. 2. iRobot (IRBT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Mark Strouse saying he sees a more balanced risk/reward following the recent pullback in the shares. 3. Regeneron (REGN) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Brian Skorney noting its selloff since last year and believes its valuation has reached a point where the selloff is overdone. 4. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Randall Stanicky saying the 11% sell-off in the stock price following the company's guidance update has removed the debate around 2018 EBITDA target and sees limited downside from the current levels. 5. United Technologies (UTX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Eade saying the company remains a leader in a number of global industries and should continue to benefit from population growth and middle class expansion in developing markets.

Twitter price target raised to $29 from $18 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali raised his price target on Twitter to $29 after improved monetization seen in the company's Q4 earnings, but says the flat MAU's and high valuation keeps his rating on Hold. Squali points to "growing user engagement and better cost containment leading to record high margins and free cash flow" and believes the momentum is likely sustainable as Twitter management improves the product and the ad platform to attract larger advertisers.

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.

MKM Partners recommends 'aggressive' buying for Facebook at historic low value
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson kept his Buy rating and $240 price target on Facebook but raised his FY18 EPS forecast to $7.40 GAAP from $7.05. Sanderson says that after another strong quarter with robust top-line growth, the stock valuation is "highly attractive" as investors "debate the impact of an expected decline in engagement, revenue growth deceleration and an elevated spending outlook". The analyst notes that the pullback in the stock price has produced a decoupling in PE from growth to all-time lows, and that the "aggressive revenue growth deceleration" that is reflected in consensus offers an upside to earnings.

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.

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.
