Walmart says Kevin Systrom will not stand for re-election to board

Walmart and Systrom, the co-founder and CEO of Instagram, mutually agreed he would not stand for re-election as he prioritizes work, board responsibilities and other outside commitments. Systrom joined the Board in 2014 and served as chair of the Technology and eCommerce Committee and was a member of the Compensation and Management Development Committee.

Walmart upgraded at Argus on low-income shoppers, high-quality stock seeekers
As previously reported, Argus analyst Christopher Graja upgraded Walmart to Buy from Hold, as he believes an improving job market should help low-and-middle-income shoppers spend more. He also sees the recent flattening of the Treasury yield curve leading some investors to boost their allocation to high-quality stocks like Walmart, Graja tells investors. He set a $100 price target on Walmart shares.

Amazon gaining apparel market share in U.S., says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said his analysis shows that Amazon (AMZN) gained 1.5% of U.S. apparel market share in 2017, largely at the expense of department stores. He estimates Amazon is the second largest U.S. apparel retailer, trailing only Walmart (WMT), and expects the e-commerce giant to take the number one spot in terms of U.S. apparel market share in 2018. Cumulatively, Nowak estimates Sears (SHLD), Macy's (M) and J.C. Penney (JCP) lost 0.8% share in 2017, with shareholdings remaining roughly flat for Target (TGT) and Kohl's (KSS). He maintains an Overweight rating and $1,550 price target on Amazon shares.

Deutsche Bank feels better about Facebook's exposure to GDPR
After scouring press reports and blog posts, Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley feels better about Europe's General Data Protection Regulation as it relates to Facebook. GDPR related consent opt-in flows for Facebook seem more benign than the most hawkish expectations, Walmsley tells investors in an intraday research note. He believes, however, that Facebook seems to be proactively pushing out these flows globally. As such, the universe of Facebook users exposed to the consent flows is likely higher and sooner than initially expected, which is probably a net negative, Walmsley contends. He has a Buy rating on Facebook with a $200 price target.

Facebook Q1 earnings unlikely to be positive catalyst, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley sees Facebook Q1 earnings report as unlikely to be a positive catalyst for shares given that the stock has already rebounded considerably from recent lows. Further, investors are unlikely to get meaningful comfort around the impact of Europe's General Data Protection Regulation until the Q2 report, Walmsley tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. He also wouldn't be surprised to hear a "cautious revenue outlook" from Facebook on the call. However, looking out longer term, the analyst sees Facebook shares as attractive. Walmsley keeps a Buy rating on the name.

WWE price target raised to $46 from $36 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Brandon Ross raised his price target on WWE (WWE) to $46, citing the company's confidence that they can come to an agreement on renewing the rights to their Raw and SmackDown programs which are set to expire in Q3 of 2019. The analyst adds that he has turned "more bullish" regarding the outcome of these negotiations over the past several weeks, suggesting the demand for live programming could lead to emergence of interested bidders among digital platforms such as Facebook (FB).

Facebook price target lowered to $230 at Credit Suisse ahead of Q1 report
Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju lowered his price target on Facebook to $230 from $240 ahead of the company's Q1 earnings release on April 25. In a research note to investors, Ju, who has an Outperform rating on shares, said he "struggles for reasons as to why" his near-to-medium term estimates should materially change following advertiser conversations, which suggest little in the way of changes to budget allocations to Facebook, as well as OpEx and CapEx guidance parameters, which require the company to spend an incremental $15B. Stepping back from the recent controversy, Ju said he remains a buyer of Facebook shares and notes that his long-term thesis has not really changed.
