Buy
Spotify initiated with a Buy at Stifel
Stifel analyst John Egbert started coverage of Spotify (SPOT) with a Buy rating and $180 price target, stating that he believes the company's $9.99 a month music streaming service is right behind Amazon's (AMZN) Prime membership and Netflix's (NFLX) $10.99 a month streaming subscription on the list of Internet services on a value per dollar basis. He forecasts Spotify will reach approximately 300 million monthly active users, including 159 million paying subscribers, by 2021. Egbert also thinks Spotify can deliver meaningful operating profits and cash flow within its current licensing structure, with additional upside if the company succeeds in demand creation and / or non-music content.

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.

Morgan Stanley says online tax legislation probable, but manageable for Amazon
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak weighed in on the tax and USPS debates facing Amazon (AMZN) following the President's recent tweets, saying that he sees online sales tax legislation as probable, but also believe it is manageable for the company. On the issue, he thinks this isn't new for Amazon and if anything sees it as a bigger risk to eBay (EBAY) and third party sellers. On the company's relationship with the USPS, Nowak said he views it as mutually beneficial and while he see the USPS asking for higher rates he also expect negotiations to be "rational." If the USPS asks for material increases, Amazon may be forced to increase its 2018/2019 last mile build, which is likely to weigh on near-term profitability, added Nowak, who keeps an Overweight rating and $1,500 price target on the stock.

Amazon contract profitable for USPS, former Postmaster General tells UBS
UBS hosted an expert call with Patrick Donahoe, former Postmaster General at the USPS, given confusion around rhetoric coming out of Washington D.C. regarding Amazon's relationship with the USPS, and press reports indicating this contract expires in October 2018. On the call, Donahoe unequivocally stated that the Amazon contract is profitable for the USPS, UBS said. The firm pointed out that USPS business is primarily split into two areas, namely market-dominant products/"monopoly mail," and competitive products where Amazon would fall. By law, competitive products must cover their costs, including both operating costs associated with the service provided and an allocation of 5.5% of the USPS's institutional/fixed costs, the firm added in a research note this morning.

Hasbro price target lowered to $96 from $110 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Eric Handler lowered his price target on Hasbro (HAS) to $96, saying the company's earnings will see a bigger impact from the liquidation of Toys R Us than the previous forecast. The analyst also notes headwinds for the company coming from tight inventory management at mass retailers Wal-Mart (WMT) and Amazon (AMZN). Handler adds that he has broader industry concerns, but sees some mitigating product launches for Hasbro, including a new Nerf brand launch, expanded Baby Alive product lines, continued strength from Marvel, and the possible digital launch of Magic: The Gathering Arena. The analyst keeps his Neutral rating on Hasbro.
