Intuit upgraded to Buy on TurboTax share gains, QuickBooks growth at Stifel
As previously reported, Stifel analyst Brad Reback upgraded Intuit (INTU) to Buy from Hold, as he believes its two primary business divisions each have improving competitive dynamics and multiple secular growth drivers. On the TurboTax side, Reback highlights that Intuit's primary competitor, H&R Block (HRB), recently announced plans to close 400 tax stores, which should put additional market share up for grabs in 2019. On the QuickBooks side, Reback continues to believe the platform is just as important to the company's long-term strategy and should help to sustain mid-teens growth in the company's Small Business Segment. He raised his price target on Intuit shares to $240 from $197.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Matthew Niknam saying the company's fundamentals are inflecting but the shares have remained range-bound. 2. Intuit (INTU) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Brad Reback saying he believes its two primary business divisions each have improving competitive dynamics and multiple secular growth drivers. 3. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Weinstein saying the recent pull back captures potential downside risk from U.S. tariff withdrawal. 4. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brad Handler saying the stock's 13% pullback over the past month is unwarranted. 5. Accenture (ACN) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he is incrementally more bullish that an ERP modernization cycle is starting.

Uncertainty around H&R Block to persist, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer kept his Sell rating and $19 price target on H&R Block (HRB), saying the uncertainty around the company's medium-term prospects is likely to persist, keeping the stock under pressure. Palmer points to the recent 18% decline in the stock price after the company's June 12th financial guidance indicating that the changes in the company's pricing structure were due to the less favorable simplified U.S. tax laws. The analyst also expects the U.S. Treasury's foray into tax simplification to accelerate the shift to online tax filing, marginalizing H&R Block to a fraction of the market share of Intuit's (INTU) TurboTax.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. NETFLIX CUT TO UNDERPERFORM AT BUCKINGHAM: Buckingham analyst Matthew Harrigan downgraded Netflix (NFLX) to Underperform from Neutral ahead of the company's earnings report, as he estimates that the stock's current price implies "optimistic" views of the company reaching 360M global members in 2025 and 505M by 2033 along with a long-term operating profit margin near 35%. UBS NOW FAVORS UPS OVER FEDEX: UBS analyst Thomas Wadewitz upgraded UPS (UPS) to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $125 from $121. The combination of cost and productivity improvements, coupled with a "constructive" revenue backdrop, provide potential for improved Domestic Package margin performance and stronger operating income growth in 2019 for UPS, Wadewitz told investors. The analyst believes the company has "multiple cost side drivers" and that the new Teamsters agreement may also facilitate growth. Wadewitz this morning also downgraded FedEx (FDX) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $256 from $283. With a large global Express business representing 55% of revenue and about 13% of revenue linked to Asia, FedEx is exposed to risk from tariffs and potentially slower trade activity, Wadewitz told investors. The analyst sees limited visibility to near term margin expansion as the company is still ramping up integration with TNT in Europe. In midday trading, UPS is up just over 1%, while FedEx is down 1.5%. BMO CUTS HASBRO TO UNDERPERFORM: BMO Capital analyst Gerrick Johnson downgraded Hasbro to Underperform from Market Perform and lowered his price target to $75 from $80. The analyst noted that the liquidation of Toys R US may be "more impactful than investors realize" after the initial 9% rally in the stock price on "relief that things were not worse", even as retailers are becoming more selective in the "pantry loading" inventory restocking process. JPMORGAN SEES LOW THREAT FROM AMAZON TO NETWORK EQUIPMENT STOCKS: JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee told investors in a research note that he believes the threat of Amazon (AMZN) entering into the networking equipment market is "relatively low" for networking equipment stocks including Arista Networks (ANET), Cisco Systems (CSCO), and Juniper Networks (JNPR), contending that AWS' switching product will target data center capital spending from large enterprise customers, which is only a $2.5B opportunity relative to the $12B data center switching and $16B campus switching market.

Overweight
Amazon.com price target raised to $2,075 from $1,850 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target on Amazon.com to $2,075 and kept his Overweight rating ahead of its Q2 results. Olson notes that his search index suggests that unit growth will be up 19% - in line with Q1 and just below consensus for the online segment. The analyst adds however that his CIO survey suggests intentions to accelerate spending, stating that the AWS segment and other segment revenue is likely to post an upside. Olson is positive on the Amazon stock amid a "plethora of topline tailwinds and potential return to margin expansion" in the second half of this year.

Hold
PayPal price target raised to $92 from $80 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey raised his price target on PayPal to $92 but kept his Hold rating, saying the company can now be seen as a "Venmo monetization" story. Jeffrey warns that the company is facing increasing U.S. competition from Amazon (AMZN) with its estimated 50% share of e-commerce, and is also assailed by new entrants such as Zelle. The analyst further states that while Venmo's high-profile deals with GrubHub (GRUB) and Uber are notable, but there is uncertainty over the consumers' inertia in using Venmo, and recommends that PayPal acquires a "physical world processor".

Macquarie sees mixed results for U.S. internet large-caps, downgrades Twitter
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Benjamin Schachter downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Outperform, citing concerns about MAU trends, what he views as a limited set of near-term catalysts and a valuation he believes will likely limit upside from current levels. In his note previewing the upcoming earnings season for U.S. large-cap internet names, Schachter said he expects "somewhat mixed results," identifying Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL) as the stocks on which he is most bullish. He added that he is "increasingly frustrated" with the lack of visibility into the core revenue drivers for Alphabet (GOOGL) and he does not "expect much" from eBay (EBAY) this quarter.
