Apple Music to become key driver of ARPU growth for services, says Bernstein

Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr. says Apple (AAPL) Music appears positioned to become a key driver of ARPU growth for Services. Looking forward, the analyst estimates that Apple Music could grow at 70% in FY18 and 50% in FY19, contributing nearly 500 bps per year to Services revenue growth and enabling Apple's overall music business to become meaningfully accretive to Services revenue and ARPU for the first time in years. Additionally, Sacconaghi notes that the growth trajectories of both Spotify and Apple Music appear to be stronger than of satellite radio and Netflix (NFLX). The analyst reiterates a Market Perform rating and $170 price target on Apple's shares.

iPhone X share gains accelerated in China in January, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted that Apple's 12% iPhone shipment growth in China last quarter was the company's second largest sequential share gain in China. 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. Huberty has an Overweight rating and $203 price target on Apple shares.

Apple resumed with a Market Perform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Chris Caso resumed Apple with a Market Perform rating, saying investors now know there is no "supercycle" for this round of the iPhone and he believes consensus expectations have been set appropriately lower. He thinks a "massive" cash return program announcement in April will be the next catalyst for the stock, but also does not see this as a reason to be overweight the stock as he believes it is well anticipated.

Buy
Universal Display upgraded to Buy at Needham on valuation
As reported earlier, Needham analyst James Ricchiuti upgraded Universal Display (OLED) to Buy from Hold with a $180 price target. The analyst says that he has been looking for the right entry point on the stock since the summer, and the recent 25% selloff from the high offers that opportunity. While expectations for Q4 results this week are more cautious amid the anxiousness around the Samsung (SSNLF) and Apple (AAPL) ramp, the positives of the new Samsung license agreement in hand and capacity ramping in Korea and China over the next two years outweigh the concerns.

Immersion price target raised to $17 from $15 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss says Immersion's (IMMR) guidance for 2018 is better than expected on the heels of the settlement Apple (AAPL) settlement. In a research note to clients, Stoss, who raised his price target to $17 from $15 and has a Buy rating on shares, said the implied Apple settlement appears to be towards the high end or above his previous $25M-$30M expectation. Due to ASC606 accounting, a portion of the Apple settlement will be taken in Q1 with the rest ratable over the life of the contract. He also noted that litigation spend guidance was a vast improvement vs. actual spend in 2017. He looks for additional pending lawsuit settlements with Samsung (SSNLF), Fitbit (FIT) and Motorola (MSI) in the coming months and years, penetration into new markets like China and growing adoption in automotive to drive the stock.

Lionsgate downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton downgraded Lionsgate (LGF.B) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target to $31 from $36 after the company lowered its 3-year OIBDA growth outlook to 7.8% from about 13% amid accelerated investment in Starz and international divisions. Thornton notes that while the added spending is justifiable, the multiple needs to reflect the updated model as confidence in more back-end loaded guidance has been shaken. Among his areas of concern, Thornton also lists "accelerating mix shift to originals from licensed content", impact of Netflix (NFLX) on box office and competition for projects, and impact on Starz from bundling deals such as T-Mobile (TMUS) with Netflix and AT&T (T) with HBO.

Netflix price target raised to $270 from $175 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton raised his price target on Netflix to $270 after further evaluating his FY18 revenue, EBIT, and EPS growth view following Q4 results, with upward revisions driven by expectations of higher subscription adds, higher ARPU, and lower tax rates. The analyst keeps his Hold rating however, noting the risks of intensifying competition for subscribers, cost of content, and the renegotiations with U.S ISP's in the coming years.

Netflix price target raised to $319 from $281 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Netflix shares to $319 after surveying over 700 subscribers in seven international markets. The streaming service closed yesterday up 3c to $278.55. The survey found a 15% decline in the percentage of subscribers, relative to his previous survey, who would stop subscribing if Netflix were to raise prices by 20%. The reduction in subscriber price sensitivity is due, in part, to the improving international Netflix content library, Olson tells investors in a research note partially titled "Int'l Sub Survey Shows Increased Willingness to Pay Higher Prices." The analyst notes that increasing his 2020 international revenue estimates based on a 20% price increase, while freezing spending assumptions, would increase his overall 2020 earnings per share estimate by $1.00 to $7.40, suggesting a share value of over $400. He maintains an Overweight rating on Netflix shares.

Needham says buy Roku amid 18% selloff given discount to Netflix
Needham analyst Laura Martin recommends using the post-earnings selloff in shares of Roku (ROKU) as a buying opportunity. The stock in premarket trading is down 18%, or $9.40, to $41.90. Martin keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $50 price target. The stock will open lower based on a non-cash accounting change to Accounting Standards Codification 606 that lowers Roku's projected gross profit, adjusted EBITDA and earnings, Martin tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, expects ASC 606 to elevate Roku's reported revenue and costs, which she feels is helpful, noting the stock likely trades on a multiple of forward revenue. At 7.0 times, Roku trades at a "sharp discount" to its closest comp, Netflix (NFLX), which trades at 10.7 times, Martin contends. She thinks investors should own Roku given the "steep discount" to Netflix despite "comparable growth credentials, a better margin profile, lower content risks, and little competitive threat from new OTT channel launches."
