Apple price target raised to $210 from $195 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Ananda Baruah raised his price target on Apple to $210, saying the stock is positioned "net-positively" for the second half of the year with momentum in its Services segment and the launch of a lower priced LCD-based iPhone X expected to be offered in September. The analyst also cites the company's capital return program, with its $100B buyback starting in the June quarter. Baruah kept his Buy rating on Apple.

Lumentum price target lowered to $85 from $90 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Richard Shannon lowered his price target for Lumentum (LITE) to $85 from $90, citing inventory overhang from the hard stop on Apple's (AAPL) iPhone X production, and improved module-level yields that drive temporarily lower VCSEL array bare die demand. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Lumentum's shares.

Apple price target raised to $230 on AR upside at BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan said Augmented Reality, or AR, adoption is set to grow materially with Apple's launch of the ARKit 2. He sees AR adding $1B to Apple's revenue by the end of FY20 from App Store downloads alone and also thinks increased use of AR apps will help drive higher sales of iPhones. Given his bullish view of the AR opportunity, Mohan raised his price target on Apple shares to $230 from $225 and he keeps a Buy rating on the stock, calling AR "yet another competitive advantage" for the iPhone maker.

Possible eSim win with Apple coming for STMicroelectronics, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss believes STMicroelectronics (STM) may have won a slot for its new eSIM combo chip in the upcoming new Apple (AAPL) iPhones to be launched this fall. Based on his checks, the analyst thinks it is likely that Apple will move to eSIM technology, though Apple could change that decision and keep carrier specific SIM cards. STMicroelectronics would be potentially knocking out NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) as the NFC supplier to Apple. Moreover, Stoss thinks STMicroelectronics continues to win new business at a "phenomenal pace," with several new high-volume wins still underappreciated by the Street. He reiterates a Buy rating and $30 price target on STMicroelectronics shares.

Yelp possibly benefiting from Facebook news feed changes, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said in a research note earlier today that his firm's latest consumer survey around local service preferences suggests either Yelp's (YELP) pace of product development is driving share gains, or that the company is benefiting from Facebook's (FB) recent de-emphasis of organic News Feed business posts. Baird's latest survey of 500 consumers showed an uptick in respondents selecting Yelp and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) as a preferred source for local services and information. The recent uptick coincides with a decline in Facebook's response rate, which could reflect changes to its News Feed algorithm de-emphasizing organic business posts in favor of user-generated content, Sebastian wrote. The analyst believes that while some confusion remains around the impact of Yelp's non-term contracts, the added flexibility will create an opportunity to cross-sell more attributable services over time. He keeps a Neutral rating on Yelp with a $44 price target. The stock in late morning trading is down 46c to $41.66.

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).

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.

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.

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.
