$23M spread in Square as a bullish play is adjusted

$23M spread in Square as a bullish play is adjusted. The stock off 56c to $66.72 and 20K Sep 40 - Dec 55 call spreads sold at $11.5. 33K Sep 40 calls trade total today (13K more at $26.90) and the combined $87.8M in premium likely covers a matching block opened 3/19/18 with shares near $55. 33K calls were bought for $16.85, tied to stock on an 86 delta, at that time and are being covered today to monetize the $32.2 in profits. Net cash outlay for the new position in Dec 55 calls is almost $30M and opening the position expresses confidence that shares can move even higher through yearend. Note that ROKU is also seeing substantial deep ITM call buying and these strategies are likely part of a larger stock replacement strategy.

Perform
Square assumed with a Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene downgraded Square to Perform from Outperform without a price target after assuming coverage of the name. While the analyst is optimistic that Square's "robust growth will persist," he estimates that greater than 30% and 55% of annual revenue and EBITDA growth are priced into the shares. As such, he sees "meaningful risk if growth moderates or execution falters."

Hold
Square assumed with a Hold from Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John Hecht downgraded Square to Hold from Buy after assuming coverage of the name. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $63 from $60. The analyst sees "broadly positive fundamentals" for the company, but believes the shares are fairly valued at current levels. He views competition as well as "high growth targets in nascent business segments" as risks for Square.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI. 2. Chipotle (CMG) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Mizuho with analyst Jeremy Scott saying after an 80% rally since the new CEO appointment, Chipotle shares currently price in an "aggressive recovery" in both comps and margins. 3. Biogen (BIIB) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst Brian Skorney saying that following a quick ~35% move since his April upgrade, he is taking his gains off the table on the back of the BAN2401 results. 4. eBay (EBAY) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst Youssef Squali citing the anticipated impact of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that forces collection of online sales tax on a state level and reverses the 1992 e-commerce precedent. 5. Square (SQ) assumed and downgraded to a Hold from Buy at Jefferies and a Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Square is not a play on bitcoin, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev disagrees with the notion that Square is a play on bitcoin. Cash App downloads have been accelerating despite the slump in bitcoin prices, Dolev tells investors in a research note. For perspective, Coinbase's monthly downloads have turned sharply negative in recent months, the analyst adds. He notes that his firm's payments app tracker shows Square Cash App downloads accelerated in May/June to up 154% year-over-year. Dolev keeps a Buy rating on the shares with an $85 price target. The stock closed yesterday up $1.72 to $64.76.
