Seattle repeals 'Amazon tax' just a month after approving it, TechCrunch says

Seattle's City Council has repealed a tax it unanimously passed just last month that would require big corporations to pay a fixed amount per employee, with the money to be used to combat homelessness, TechCrunch reports. Amazon (AMZN) was the most high-profile opponent of the tax, though not the only one, the report says. After fighting to have the law changed, Amazon, Starbucks (SBUX), and Paul Allen's Vulcan lent their weight and money to a referendum campaign that would put the tax up to a popular vote in November, the report says. This prospect apparently caused the City Council to announce a special meeting less than a day in advance, which resulted in a repeal of the tax, the report notes. Reference Link

Bernstein offers list of possible CEOs for Amazon-Berkshire-JPMorgan venture
After Berkshire' (BRK.A) Warren Buffett and JPMorgan's (JPM) Jamie Dimon announced on CNBC that they have selected a CEO for their healthcare joint venture with Amazon (AMZN) and added that they would announce the name in about two weeks, Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes noted that Geisinger CEO David Feinberg denied accepting the position and said he is committed to Geisinger. The ultimate choice of the CEO will inform on the intended scope of the NewCo and how the companies will prioritize strategic direction and needed capabilities, said Wilkes, who offered a list of potential CEO candidates that includes Gary Loveman, Rick Jelinek, Matt Manders, Patrick Conway, Amir Rubin, Owen Tripp, Chris Grant, Marc Harrison, Andy Slavitt, Todd Park and Peter Orszag.

Target price target raised to $90 from $85 at Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict raised his price target on Target (TGT) to $90 and kept his Outperfom rating, saying 2018 marks the year of "aggressive scaling" of same-day and next-day fulfillment option that rivals "any retailer in the market", including Amazon (AMZN) and Walmart (WMT). The analyst further contends that given the improving profitability trends, "Target remains a stock to own".

Morgan Stanley says AT&T ruling may help narrow public/private media value gap
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said the court approval of AT&T's (T) acquisition of Time Warner (TWX) without conditions recognized the reality of new competition in the form of content investments from players such as Netflix (NFLX), Google's (GOOGL) YouTube, Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB). This ruling sends a "clear message to other industry players" and market uncertainty on deal prospects could fall, which could mean that equity values will likely rise accordingly, Swinburne tells investors. He notes there remains a large gap, which may now narrow, between private market valuations and public multiples in many parts of media and cable, pointing to Discovery Inc. (DISCK) as an example illustrating that point.

DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte raised his price on Amazon.com to $2,100 and kept his Buy rating, citing his updated model projecting incremental revenue generated by the company's private-label and ad efforts relative to his prior forecasts. Forte says he is raising his sales growth projections by 1% for the forward years and still expects longer-term adjusted EBITDA margin to reach 20% vs. 11.1% in 2017.

JPMorgan likes Starbucks' risk/reward at current share levels
In a research note titled "Far from Perfect, but Good Enough for Where Stock is," JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe says he likes Starbucks' risk/reward profile at current share levels. Following the company's first ever in-country analyst day focused on China, the analyst believes "multiple downside is very limited." Downside risk in the stock comes from earnings, not multiple compression, Ivankoe tells investors. He keeps an Overweight rating on Starbucks with a $64 price target.

Starbucks deserves a premium multiple, says UBS
UBS analyst Dennis Geiger said Starbucks has broad-based quality growth and as a results deserves its premium multiple. The analyst went to China and saw a strong and increasingly important growth opportunity. The analyst said new products, digital, and market tailwinds will help contribute to its positive same-store-sales growth. Geiger reiterated his Buy rating and $66 price target on Starbucks shares.

Schultz leaving a loss, but Morgan Stanley says change can benefit Starbucks too
Morgan Stanley John Glass said Howard Schultz stepping down from his role of executive chairman must be considered a loss for Starbucks, but he added that change can have some potential benefits as well. Glass contends Starbucks is at an important crossroads in its strategy and he believes this event perhaps could further accelerate this process as the new leadership team put the company on a path toward the future with their own ideas. Glass maintains his Overweight rating and $72 price target on Starbucks shares.

Starbucks loss of Schultz raises risk profile, says Baird
Baird analyst David Tarantino believes the departure of Howard Schultz from Starbucks raises the risk profile for investors. The analyst said he is disappointed to see such an iconic leader exit the business, but he is cautiously optimistic the current leadership team can execute the current strategies effectively. Tarantino lowered his price target to $65 from $68 on Starbucks shares, but maintains an Outperform rating.
