Alphabet added as a Fresh Pick at Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian added Alphabet as a Fresh Pick as he noted the shares have underperformed the large cap internet group overall. He said there are several catalysts ahead as the company moves more aggressively in key markets, which he thinks should drive the shares higher. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $1,300 price target on Alphabet shares.

Morgan Stanley makes case for Amazon trying again to enter travel market
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak noted that Amazon (AMZN) has attempted twice without success to enter the travel market with its "Local" and "Destinations" efforts, but he won't count the company out of any sector indefinitely and chose to proactively analyze and size the opportunity. While stating that he is not aware of any specific new Amazon travel offerings, Nowak said he believes the required dollar investment for online travel isn't large versus some of the company's other investments, though execution could be difficult and take time. If Amazon could build an online hotel business even 50% the size of Expedia's (EXPE) with Booking's (BKNG) level of ad spend/transaction, Nowak estimates it could add about $600M annually to operating profit. An even larger business, or better efficiency, could add over $1.5B to profit annually, he added. Nowak, who keeps his Overweight rating on Amazon, also said he thinks the near-term impact of Amazon entering travel would likely be positive for Alphabet (GOOGL).

Jefferies boosts Amazon target to $1,850 after ad business deep dive
Following a deep dive into the company's advertising business, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill raised his price target for Amazon.com (AMZN) shares to $1,850 from $1,750. The stock closed yesterday up $19.50 to $1,589.39. Amazon's ad segment should grow annually at 43% to $22B by 2022, Thill tells investors in a research note. Amazon is aggressively growing its advertising business, but not at the expense of Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL), the analyst contends. He says Amazon's "billions of touch points with consumers and end of funnel sales conversion are an advertiser's dream for targeting and attribution." Thill thinks the "right pieces are in place" for Amazon to get to $1 trillion in market capitalization over time. He keeps a Buy rating on Amazon shares.

Apple HomePod sales weak, cheaper model may help, says Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang lowered his estimates for Apple's (AAPL) HomePod to 3M units from 6M after seeing weaker than expected sales, but he believes a low-cost HomePod model may see better traction against Amazon's (AMZN) and Google's (GOOGL) devices. Zhang keeps a Buy rating on Apple shares.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,355 from $1,210 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,355 and kept his Buy rating on strong Q4 revenue momentum in spite of the miss on margins. Given its sensitivity to margin trends, the analyst notes that the stock "corrected meaningfully" after the Q4 report while also underperforming the Nasdaq. Sanderson believes that the stock could still "benefit meaningfully from additional disclosure on some of the key growth assets and investment areas", such the company's latest announcement of Google Cloud revenue reaching $1B per quarter, though he does not see further transparency into assets such as YouTube on the horizon.

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.

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 $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.

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.
