Consumer groups say YouTube improperly gathering children's data, NY Times says

A coalition of over 20 consumer advocacy groups is expected to file a complaint against Google's YouTube alleging the site is violating the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act by collecting and profiting from personal information of young children, the New York Times reports, citing the complaint. The groups, which are calling on the Federal Trade Commission to probe the matter and implement penalties, say YouTube breached the federal law which requires companies to obtain consent from parents prior to harvesting data on children younger than 13, however the company has said its main site is meant only for users 13 and older.

Facebook, Twitter MAUs could drop on European regulation, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler says his recent checks indicate Europe's General Data Protection Regulation could be "slightly more problematic than Facebook (FB) implied in recent commentary." The analyst sees risk that reported monthly active users could drop off for Facebook and Twitter (TWTR) starting in late Q2. He adds, however, that daily active users are "far more important and less of a GDPR concern for the social networks." Daily users may also drop off a bit, Sandler adds. The analyst sees less of impact on ad revenue. Further, his checks suggest that most companies using cookies and tags for digital marketing should be relatively unchanged as most publishers have been using GDPR compliant notifications for months ahead of the May mandate. Beyond GDPR, Sandler thinks ePrivacy regulation, slated for 2020 and beyond, may be even more problematic for the social media group, and "accrue more control" to Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and Apple (AAPL).

Adobe downgraded to Market Perform after run-up at JMP Securities
As previously reported, JMP Securities analyst Patrick Walravens downgraded Adobe Systems (ADBE) to Market Perform from Outperform as he believes the shares are fairly valued after having risen 69% in 2017 and a further 21% year-to-date. On the plus side, he notes that Adobe's Creative Cloud continues with "near-monopoly competitive power", its international business is growing and its CEO said on the Q1 earnings call that he expects the "momentum to continue." However, Walravens also expresses caution that the strategic partnership between Google (GOOGL) and Salesforce (CRM) could negatively impact the competitive position for Adobe's Experience Cloud.

Microsoft has path to $1T market cap, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss said Microsoft's (MSFT) Public Cloud offering is differentiated from those of cloud giants Amazon (AMZN) and Google (GOOGL) as it spans from core Infrastructure Services to Platform-as-a-Service capabilities and up the stack to the application layer. This combination of Public Cloud assets paired with Microsoft's large existing customer base, developer base, expansive distribution channel, and strong on-premise technology will likely drive continuing share gains over the next three years, contends Weiss. The analyst, who thinks Microsoft looks poised to maintain a dominant position in a public cloud market, also now forecasts improving gross and operating margins for the company over the next three years. Given all of this, Weiss called Microsoft his top pick, increased his price target on the shares to $130 from $110, and noted that he sees the company having a path to $50B in EBIT and a $1 trillion market cap.

Automation the next 'cloud wars' battle, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin says the AWS Summit SF exposed an even greater focus by Amazon (AMZN) Web Services on cloud automation. The analyst believes the "cloud wars" in 2018 appear to be moving from a battle of "features" seen in the last two years toward a new battle of "automation." Bracelin sees Automation as having three major benefits for AWS: it can drive material cost savings, it saves developers time, and it serves as a competitive differentiator versus Microsoft Azure (MSFT) and Google Cloud (GOOG; GOOGL). Bracelin reiterates a Sector Weight rating on Amazon's shares.

Amazon digital ad spending to benefit from Facebook scandal, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba says the recent issues involving Facebook (FB) and Google's (GOOGL) YouTube in customer data protection are positive for Amazon.com (AMZN). The analyst says he "always expected" for Amazon to become a force in digital advertising based on its "extensive user data, technological expertise, and deep pockets", pointing to data management scandal at those firms as a potential catalyst for migration to Amazon. Chukumba keeps his Buy rating and $1,700 price target.

Etsy price target raised to $33 from $28 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte raised his price target on Etsy (ETSY) to $33, keeping his positive view of the company's business model as a blend of "eBay's (EBAY) high-margin marketplace, Google's (GOOGL) high-margin advertising business, PayPal's (PYPL) payments effort, and, loosely speaking, Amazon's (AMZN) shipping offering". Forte adds that his meetings with the management last week was even more impressive as it demonstrated how the company's operations are being fine-tuned. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Etsy.
