Facebook traffic to publishers being replaced by Google's, Recode reports

Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) increased traffic to publishers is replacing the traffic lost from Facebook (FB), according to Recode, citing new data from Chartbeat. More publishers have been signing up for the Google publishing format known as Accelerated Mobile Pages as Facebook tinkers with its algorithm to prioritize posts from friends and family, the report noted.

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.

DOWNGRADE

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.

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.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,300 from $1,220 at Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,300, citing strong growth in mobile search as well as "significant revenue growth" from the company's next-generation businesses - YouTube, Google Cloud, and Google Play. 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.

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.

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.
