Alphabet ad platform enhancement offers more automation, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian kept his Outperform rating and $1,300 price target on Alphabet, saying the company's sixth annual Marketing Live conference demonstrated its recently announced core ad platform changes and its ability to "leverage machine learning capabilities". Sebastian notes that the enhancements provide a higher level of automation in ad creation and measurement, making it easier for advertisers to develop campaigns across the company's suite of consumer apps. The analyst adds that moderating growth in traffic acquisition costs as well as its increasing revenue diversification offer further upside potential for Alphabet.

Jefferies sees rotation coming to Technology, downgrades sector rating
Jefferies equity strategist Steven DeSanctis downgraded his rating on the Technology sector to a Market Weight from Overweight. "Sentiment is too strong and we sense a rotation coming," DeSanctis tells investors in a research note. On Biotech, the analyst recommends staying selective as the sector "is nearing an all-time high weight in small growth benchmarks." On Financials, DeSanctis says that while the sector has not worked for 18 months, rising interest rates, more deal activity and cheaper valuations could get the group moving higher.

Alphabet should be giving away Google Home, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak lowered his FY18 EPS estimate for Alphabet (GOOGL) by 1%, citing the impact of foreign exchange and company investments on Cloud, Hardware, and YouTube, and noted that he expects Q2 EPS to miss consensus by 1%. However, he would be a buyer on any weakness through Q2 results and raised his price target on Alphabet shares to $1,250 from $1,200 given a higher view on its long-term earnings. Nowak estimates U.S. household penetration of smart speakers will grow to about 70% by 2022, with Amazon (AMZN) having 1.3 times more Echos in use than Google Home devices. Given this view, and his expectation for voice shopping to lead to faster e-commerce adoption, Nowak argues that Alphabet should give away a Google Home Mini to every U.S. household, and possibly even everyone globally. The cost would be "only" $3.3B, and the larger personal assistant base would let Google grow its emerging voice technologies, according to Nowak, who keeps an Overweight rating on Alphabet.

Next round of privacy regulations unlikely to impair digital advertisers, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves notes that beyond GDPR, the next significant potential privacy laws appear to be ePrivacy Regulation in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act. At this point, the analyst does not expect either to meaningfully impair the opportunity for digital advertisers. Further, changes to ePR drafts suggest a more moderating view from regulators that better balances privacy with demands of the digital economy and the consumer experience, which he views positively. Hargreaves continues to recommend buying Criteo (CRTO), Facebook (FB), and Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG).

Nomura Instinet initiates coverage on Americas Internet
Nomura Instinet initiated coverage on nine names within the Americas Internet sector. The firm believes, overall, that there is "still some room for growth in digital advertising for the foreseeable future" and believes it will be led primarily by digital video and social, and primarily on mobile devices. The firm added that, as a result of slowing user growth and already high internet penetration, the growth will likely be led by pricing, rather than volume, and the consistent shift away from offline to online media. Nomura Instinet forecast the global digital advertising market "will grow at a 15% five-year CAGR through 2020 as digital ads work toward constituting half of total advertising spend," which the firm expects to occur in 2020. Nomura Instinet initiated Alphabet Class A (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Spotify (SPOT) with Buy ratings, and added that Alphabet and Facebook were the best positioned in this newly regulated industry. It initiated Netflix (NFLX), Snap (SNAP), Trade Desk (TTD), Criteo (CRTO), and Pandora (P) with Neutral ratings. It initiated Twitter (TWTR) with a Reduce rating, saying that while it is a "stable long-term asset that has something for everyone," the firm believes the market is pricing in "a significant advertising reacceleration that implies a shift in ad spend," while the firm expects "stability instead of a reacceleration of growth."

Groupon offers 'tremendous value' in potential sale, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte kept his Buy rating and $8 price target on Groupon following speculation by Recode over the weekend that the company is looking to sell itself. Forte recommends that investors purchase shares, stating that the market is underpricing Groupon as its "North American business has never been in better shape and its international operations are well positioned". In a bull case, the analyst contends that Groupon could be worth $12 per share if it can improve its growth rate or find a strategic buyer where a deal would value the two companies higher than the sum of their parts. Forte speculates about Priceline (PCLN), Alibaba (BABA), Google (GOOGL), and Facebook (FB) as potential acquirers for Groupon.
