Google confirms YouTube Music streaming service to launch May 22

In a post last night to the official YouTube blog, Google confirmed that on Tuesday, May 22, the company will be introducing YouTube Music, which it calls "a new music streaming service made for music with the magic of YouTube: making the world of music easier to explore and more personalized than ever." The post stated: "While fans can enjoy the new ad-supported version of YouTube Music for free, we're also launching YouTube Music Premium, a paid membership that gives you background listening, downloads and an ad-free experience for $9.99 a month." Publicly traded companies that already offer music streaming services include Spotify (SPOT), Pandora (P) and Apple (AAPL). Reference Link

Walmart deal for Flipkart more dilutive than anticipated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that news reports heading up to Walmart's (WMT) deal for a majority stake in Flipkart had predicted a $12B transaction for about 60% of a business generating operating losses in the $1B range. However, the higher than expected magnitude of losses Walmart would absorb in India significantly raises the stakes on the trajectory of its U.S. business and clouds the near-term path, he said. He also questions why the company is investing outside the U.S. market, stating that it could have instead accelerated its third-party marketplace infrastructure, stepped up its partnership with Google Home (GOOG) to better compete with Amazon's (AMZN) Alexa, or intensified domestic investments in price and fulfillment. However, he does add that the deal prevents Amazon, for now, from building an "insurmountable" advantage in the important Indian market. Gutman lowered his price target on Walmart to $93 from $99 after the deal was more dilutive than anticipated and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares.

KeyBanc remains a buyer of Criteo
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves remains a buyer of Criteo (CRTO), reiterating an Overweight rating and $50 price target on the shares. The analyst says that the potential for a decline in consumer consent rates is the biggest risk to Criteo from GDPR. Along these lines, publishers that opt to outsource consent management to Google (GOOG; GOOGL), which may require explicit consent, could see a material change in consent rates, he contends. While this could create a headwind to Criteo's revenue growth, Hargreaves believes exposure is modest and built into current expectations.

Broadcom co-designed Google's third generation AI processor, says JPMorgan
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) yesterday as its developer conference introduced its third generation deep learning/artificial intelligence processor chip called the Cloud Tensor Processor Unit, JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the TPU3 chip was co-designed by Broadcom (AVGO). Further, and just as important, Sur believes Broadcom has won, and is already working with Google on its fourth generation TPU4 processor chip using 7nm manufacturing technology. Broadcom remains the analyst's top pick in semiconductors. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Google changes unlikely to impact Dropbox, says Deutsche Bank
Dropbox (DBX) rival Google (GOOG, GOOGL) this week announced some changes to its consumer-based cloud storage service, Deutsche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes that Google is moving all paid Google Drive consumer subscribers to a newly named Google One service, which includes added storage capacity options, "expert assistance" and the ability to add family members. Google also cut the price of its 2TB capacity plan in half, to $10 from $20 per month, Keirstead adds. He does not see these changes materially impacting Dropbox and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Spotify initiated with a Sell at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould initiated Spotify (SPOT) with a Sell rating and a price target of $120, saying the company's comparison to Netflix (NFLX) based on its status of a streaming music leader is not justified. Gould states that Spotify does not have a similar competitive lead as Netflix does, adding that the "music oligopoly will make it difficult for music streaming to achieve the same margin as video". The analyst concludes that at 4.5-times projected sales, the multiple on Spotify is too high.

Apple's Service growth likely to decelerate in Q3/Q4, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr. notes that one of the key issues arising from Apple's (AAPL) Q2 was the surprising strength of Services. The analyst believes Service growth will likely decelerate in Q3 and Q4, in part due to tougher comps and as the Licensing business laps its contract renegotiation with Google (GOOG; GOOGL). That said, Sacconaghi does feel incrementally better about the longer-term prospects of the business. While he still doubts that Services can sustainably grow at 20% without new services offerings, he now sees Apple as likely to "hit its bogey of doubling Services to $49B by the end of FY20." Sacconaghi reiterates a Market Perform rating and $190 price target on Apple's shares.

Surveys indicate iPhone inventories beginning to trend down, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh says his carrier surveys indicate sell-through results were largely in line with lowered expectations. The analyst notes that demand for the Galaxy Samsung (SSNLF) 9 remains "very disappointing" and inventories remain bloated, as pricing and the lack of innovation appear to be culprits. These mixed results leave him slightly more constructive on owning the mobile supply chain stocks into 2H18 given the modest decline in Apple's (AAPL) iPhone inventories. Vinh's favorite mobile names are Broadcom (AVGO), Skyworks (SWKS), and Synaptics (SYNA).

Immersion results, guidance beat Street estimates, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss reiterated a Buy rating and $17 price target on Immersion following the company's Q1 earnings report, in which the company beat Q1 consensus estimates and raised its FY18 guidance for both revenues and non-GAAP net income. Stoss noted that March cash of ~$139M implies a sizable Apple (AAPL) win, roughly in-line with the analyst's ~$90M estimate for this part of the agreement. Stoss believes that Immersion pushed for a longer term deal with Apple, with this part of the deal representing half of what he sees as a six-year agreement, with another similar payment from Apple coming for the second half of the agreement after three years. Stoss also believes that Samsung (SSNLF) and China each represent an opportunity of similar size to Apple.

The firm said the share gains came mainly from secondary vendors in China, and from Samsung in India, but that Apple was not affected in any region.
