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.

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.
