VeriSign weakness only partial read through for GoDaddy, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says shares of GoDaddy (GDDY) fell yesterday after VeriSign's (VRSN) domain name additions for the December quarter came in below expectations. Weakness related to renewals of Chinese names is likely part of the reason for the shortfall, but GoDaddy's exposure to the country is still very small, Auty tells investors in a research note. The analyst views VeriSign's weakness as only a partial read through for GoDaddy and notes the company's data is only an indicator of .com and .net. There are hundreds of other domains, Auty points out. He keeps a Neutral rating on GoDaddy shares.

VeriSign could have new growth opportunity with .web domains, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty noted that the DOJ investigation into VeriSign acquiring .web has been closed, which he views as a positive development. He believes .web could be the closest thing to .com in the minds of customers looking for domain names, and being the registry operator of .web could offer VeriSign a new growth opportunity while also being a good defensive move by keeping the top-level domain out of the hands of a potential competitor. However, this opportunity is unlikely to drive revenue growth back into the double digits, added Auty, who keeps an Underweight rating on VeriSign shares.

VeriSign price target raised to $106 from $101 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty raised his price target on VeriSign to $106, updating his model based on the company's February 16th decision to redeem convertible notes and estimating a 20c benefit to expected FY18 EPS. The analyst keeps his Underweight rating on the stock, stating that VeriSign's topline growth potential is limited because of little ability to increases prices on ".com" domains and because of steady emergence of new gTLDs, awaiting the news on the timing of ".web" launch.

VeriSign Q1 net adds tracking towards low-end of guidance, says Cowen
Cowen said VeriSign's Q1 net domain name adds are tracking to towards 1.58M, the low-end of 1.5M-2M guidance. The firm's analyst said February was more subdued than expected and March will need to be stronger than usual to meet the midpoint of the range.
