Microsoft to release low-cost Surface to compete with Apple's iPad, WSJ reports

Microsoft (MSFT) will sell a cheaper Surface tablet, retailing at $399, to compete with Apple's (AAPL) least expensive iPad, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Surface Go will release in August and is aimed at the same market as Apples $329 iPad. The company will also offer a Surface Go with Windows 10 Pro, rather than just Windows 10 for $449.

Microsoft trading at discount to peers, says UBS
UBS analyst Jennifer Swanson Lowe believes Microsoft's current price undervalues both the emerging Cloud story and the durable on-premise legacy businesses. The analyst said Microsoft content is taking center stage as it acquired four game studios and formed a fifth. She also believes the strength of the Azure platform can be a differentiator for the company. Lowe reiterated her Buy rating and $114 price target on Microsoft shares.

Microsoft upgraded to Overweight on long-term growth at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell assumed coverage on Microsoft with an Overweight rating, from a Neutral rating, and a $125 price target. Cordwell said Microsoft has successfully managed the cloud transition, while expanding its addressable market, and should now be a primary beneficiary of enterprises undertake digital transformations. The analyst expects Azure, the cloud platform, to drive 40% of Microsoft's incremental 2018-2021 gross profit , with Office 365 adding 35%, and the legacy server business remaining robust due to hybrid cloud deployments.

William Blair sees buying opportunity in 3D sensing names
3D sensing names were weak Tuesday following a preannouncement from BE Semiconductor Industries, William Blair analyst Dmitry Netis tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, sees "no evidence to draw any parallel to the 3DS supply chain from the Besi preannouncement." He believes "investors are jumping to flabby conclusions, perhaps unjustly, and are overreacting to the news." With respect to Apple's (AAPL) supply chain, Netis continues to believe 3D sensing vendors, Lumentum (LITE) and Viavi (VIAV) mainly, and to lesser extent Finisar (FNSR) and II-VI (IIVI), are set to benefit from Apple's launches this fall. According to supply chain reports, Netis says, the launches will include a 3D sending camera in one low-end LCD phone and two high-end versions of an OLED phone, as well as iPad Pro. He reiterates Outperform ratings on Viavi and Finisar and sees the recent weakness as a buying opportunity.

Danone (DANOY) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst James Jones saying he now has less "punitive" assumptions about the company's sales growth and capital expenditures as its profits have become less reliant on dairy. 3. Hexcel (HXL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Ken Herbert stating he believes the acceleration in growth expected in 2018 will continue into 2019. 4. Qorvo (QRVO) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Michael McConnell citing healthy China smartphone trends, stabilizing Apple (AAPL) iPhone demand, and greater than expected market share gains in China smartphones. 5. Advanced Energy (AEIS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Pavel Molchanov saying the company's 9% free cash flow yield has turned the shares into an appealing deep value story, despite slowing organic growth.

The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Lumentum's shares.
