Neutral
Nordstrom initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti initiated Nordstorm with a Neutral rating and a price target of $54. The analyst states that the company has some advantages relative to its department store peers, having pivoted to e-commerce with 25% of total sales and value offerings at 33% of sales. However, Binetti also sees additional stock price upside as limited without improved visibility on a "potential Nordstrom family MBO".

Evercore sees high likelihood of Nordstrom take-private deal getting done
Evercore ISI analyst Omar Saad closed the 8.5% Nordstrom short position in his firm's model portfolio saying a potential leveraged buyout transaction at a price above $50 appears likely at this point. A stronger holiday season and consumer backdrop, coupled with lowered taxes in the U.S., have strengthened the case for the take private transaction and the ability to finance the added debt, Saad tells investors in a research note. He sees "enough room" for Nordstrom management and Leonard Green to increase the bid and still get the deal done. As such, the analyst sees a high likelihood of Nordstrom going private at a price above $50 per share. The stock in morning trading is up 18c to $52.08.

Nordstrom price target raised to $55 from $50 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Wayne Hood raised his price target on Nordstrom to $55 despite the Q4 earnings miss, citing better than expected FY18 EPS outlook. The analyst states that he is positive on the management's view of 2018 as a "long-awaited inflection point" that will lead to the company leveraging its "generational' investments which previously weighed on earnings. Hood keeps his Market Perform rating on Nordstrom, adding that he could become more constructive on stock price pullback or if he sees "more material acceleration in sales".

Amazon new denim brands a 'modest negative' for Gap/Nordstrom, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma notes that Amazon (AMZN) recently launched two premium private-label denim brands, namely Hale and Denim Crush. Importantly, the price points, details, and construction point to a foray into premium women's denim, he notes, adding that he thinks this is a "modest negative" for Gap (GPS) and Nordstrom (JWN). Yruma reiterates a Sector Weight rating on Amazon's shares.

Citi upgrades Lam Research to Buy ahead of strong 2019 equipment spending
As previously reported, Citi analyst Atif Malik upgraded Lam Research (LRCX) to Buy from Neutral, as he believes his concerns about weak NAND memory spending this year are now mostly priced-in and he sees investments planned by Samsung and others leading to higher year-over-year NAND equipment spending growth in 2019. He also assumes strong DRAM equipment spending this year, Malik tells investors. Malik noted that his 2019 wafer fab equipment spending forecast of $61B is above the consensus view of $58B. He still identifies Applied Materials (AMAT) as his number one U.S. semi capital equipment pick, placing KLA-Tencor (KLAC) at number two.

Applied Materials to post another record quarter, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Thomas Diffely kept his Buy rating and $70 price target on Applied Materials ahead of its Q2 earnings this week, saying that the "red-hot" memory market should produce another "record quarter and strong outlook" for the company. The analyst adds that emerging industry trends such as AI, autonomous driving, big data, internet of things, and others, are also driving "dramatic increases in semiconductor content across multiple device types", positioning the company positively over then next few years.

Nomura sees 'very attractive opportunity' in shares of Applied Materials
Shares of Applied Materials are up only slightly year-to-date despite a 12% increase in consensus fiscal 2018 earnings estimates, Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah tells investors in a research note titled "Don't 'Display' Fear." The analyst believes weakness in the OLED supply chain is creating a "very attractive opportunity" to further accumulate the shares. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Applied Materials with a $70 price target.

JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas downgraded Orion Engineered to Neutral citing citing valuation with the shares up 31% over the past year. The analyst also expects the company's EBITDA growth will see pressure in the coming quarters due to currency translation effects. He lowered his price target for the shares to $23 from $25.

JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas upgraded Orion Engineered Carbons to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $29 from $23. Carbon black business fundamentals are improving, which creates an attractive risk/reward profile, Zekauskas tells investors in a research note. He cautions, however, that equity issuance by Kinove, Orion's 40% owner, could "introduce intermittent negative volatility into the share price over shorter periods of time."
