Investors want more transparency about YouTube's sales, profit, WSJ reports

Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) has previously not shared YouTube's sales or profit as the product is part of a broader suite of ad-supported businesses but now investors and others have renewed calls for additional transparency in light of accounting rules and recent questions by the SEC over its disclosures, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing investors. Investors argue that the video streaming site has become a material part of Alphabet's business and a significant driver of growth warranting quarterly disclosure of revenue, costs and profitability and some say the lack of disclosure could potentially be undervaluing the company. Analyst estimates of YouTube's annual revenue range from $11B to $20B, or 10% to 18% of Alphabet's estimated total revenue of $134B for 2018, meaning YouTube may have more revenue than competitor Netflix (NFLX), which brought in $11.7B last year.

Google interest ups chances of in-flight Wi-Fi acquisition, says William Blair
"We have seen this movie before" is what William Blair analyst Louie DiPalma says after Bloomberg reported yesterday that Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is in advanced talks to acquire Nokia's in-flight connectivity hardware business. Google joins a long list of technology, telecom, and media providers that have exhibited a strategic interest in in-flight Wi-Fi, "although all have thus far stayed on the perimeter," DiPalma tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes that incumbents Gogo (GOGO), Panasonic (PCRFY), ViaSat (VSAT), Global Eagle Entertainment (ENT), and Inmarsat (IMASY) have invested billions toward satellite capacity and infrastructure. The industry is all about scale and potential new entrants would not have any, DiPalma contends. He believes it would take any new entrant many years to build a network from scratch, obtain regulatory approvals, and procure line-fit partnerships. The analyst thinks Google's interest in in-flight connectivity increases the probability that a tech or telecom company would buy an incumbent in the space. DiPalma has Outperform ratings on ViaSat and Gogo and a Market Perform rating on Global Eagle.

Morgan Stanley says consensus view on Alphabet expenses seems too optimistic
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak predicts that Alphabet's Q1 EPS will miss the consensus view by 8% as he believes consensus modeling of a $2B sequential decline in operating expenses, which he notes would be the largest sequential operating expense decline in 5 years, seems too optimistic given the company's investments in the cloud, YouTube and hardware. He also believes the company's large, important strategic investments will reinforce the need for improved disclosure from Alphabet, Nowak tells investors. While he trimmed his price target on the stock to $1,175 from $1,200, Nowak is still bullish about Alphabet's long-term opportunity and he keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

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.

Netflix price target raised to $360 ahead of earnings at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry believes that Netflix's strong Q1 content slate, newer distribution partnerships and marketing investments make it likely to report quarterly results that top consensus expectations. Beyond the just completed and upcoming quarters, he continues to believe long-term subscriber growth and profitability will exceed current consensus expectations, added Terry, who raised his price target on Netflix shares to $360 from $315 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Netflix U.S. trends remain solid, target to $330 at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Justin Patterson search and app data analysis indicates U.S. trends remain solid, while international momentum continues. Patterson is slightly cautious on Q2 guidance given the shifting of House of Cards to Fall 2018 and the presence of the World Cup, but said these are largely timing factors and notes the international business has grown in the past during the World Cup. The analyst said Netflix continues to build its programming lead over competitors and his core thesis of share gains, pricing power, and margin expansion remains intact. Patterson reiterated his Buy rating on Netflix and raised his price target on shares to $330 from $290.
