EU's case against Google will seem 'quaint' in the future, WSJ says

The European Commission's $5B antitrust fine on Google (GOOG, GOOGL) "will seem quaint five years from now, if it doesn't already," says the Wall Street Journal. The Journal notes that the EU's past battle with Microsoft (MSFT) over its browsers on desktop computers was wrapping up just as a "smartphone-and-tablet market dominated by Apple and Google was emerging to challenge Microsoft's dominance in PC software."

Alphabet price target raised to $1,350 from $1,250 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler reiterated an Overweight rating and raised his price target to $1,350, telling investors in a research note that he would add to positions into Q2, "full stop." Sandler says the recipe for upside is simple, "beat consensus for sites revenue, TAC and operating margin," and he believes this trifecta may happen in Q2 against a muted sentiment backdrop, causing shares to respond positively. He continues to view the risk/reward as attractive.

Facebook price target raised to $240 from $215 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill raised his price target for Facebook (FB) shares to $240 from $215 ahead of the Q2 reporting season for the Internet space. The social media giant closed yesterday up 2% to $206.98. Amazon.com (AMZN), Facebook and Google (GOOGL) are the analyst's top large-cap picks into the earnings season. Expedia (EXPE) is Thill's top value play while IAC (IAC) and GoDaddy (GDDY) are his favorite names among smaller caps. Facebook continues to be the best return on investment for advertisers as Instagram shows continued strength and more ad opportunities are being added, Thill tells investors in a research note on the Internet space. He sees earnings per share of $10-plus "on the horizon." A 25-30 times multiple off that yields a stock price of $250-$300 for Facebook, the analyst points out. Thill keeps a Buy rating on the name.

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.

EC ruling against Google is 'pro-Amazon,' says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes the European Commission's ruling against Google (GOOGL) is "a bit misguided," but he also thinks it should have a limited direct impact on Google since it ostensibly does not force a change to its search algorithm and seems "relatively straight-forward" to comply with. The "pro-Amazon ruling" has obvious benefits to Amazon (AMZN) and potentially Apple (AAPL), argues Sebastian, as he notes that the EC will require Android users to take another step before they can access an alternative product search engine and forcing Google to support forked-versions of Android could directly benefit Amazon's Fire devices. Despite the direct and/or indirect benefits of this ruling for Apple and Amazon, Sebastian maintains his positive view on Alphabet and keeps an Outperform rating and $1,300 price target on the shares.

Lionsgate upgraded to Buy at SunTrust on stronger Starz slate
As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton upgraded Lionsgate (LGF.B) to Buy from Hold, citing expectations of a stronger content slate at Starz driving the higher subscriber count while also increasing its distribution, with the addition of Amazon (AMZN) UK/Germany, YouTube (GOOGL) TV USA, Hulu TV USA, and Bell Canada. The analyst also anticipates higher subs count amid abating Starz MVPD headwinds from international expansion and secular growth in OTT. Thornton lowers his price target to $27 from $31, but notes that his target multiple assumption and OIBDA forecast for FY19 and FY20 are largely unchanged.

Microsoft price target raised to $130 from $123 at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kash Rangan raised his price target for Microsoft to $130 from $123 as he expects a Q4 beat on revenues/EPS. His channel checks continue to suggest that potential upside opportunities exist long-term. The analyst believes E5 adoption could accelerate by end of CY2018 as market awareness of value proposition improves, while adoption trends should continue to be strong as feature sets good enough for enterprise wide deployments. Dynamics 365 is also seeing strong midmarket pull, he contends. Additionally, Rangan thinks gaming is underappreciated, but Fortnite could still be a tailwind. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

Nvidia can selloff near-term on graphics commentary, says Citi
Citi analyst Atif Malik says his recent supply chain checks indicate discrete graphics gaming demand is expected to remain sluggish thru the September quarter due to a "sharp decline" in mining related demand on falling cryptocurrency prices, channel distributors and partners waiting for Nvidia's (NVDA) new Turing gaming card launch in the October quarter, and weak gaming console sales at Microsoft (MSFT) offset by the Nintendo (NTDOY) Switch. The analyst lowered his July and October quarter estimates for Nvidia to bring them in-line with consensus. He thinks the stock can selloff in the near-term on weaker than expected graphics commentary from TSMC (TSM), who reports on July 19, and AMD (AMD), who reports on July 25. Malik, however, keeps a Buy rating on Nvidia with a $300 price target. He believes his long-term thesis on the shares remains intact.

Cyclical tailwinds could help lift Microsoft growth, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin reiterates an Overweight rating and $110 price target for Microsoft as he believes it could benefit in the 2H from the combination of secular and cyclical tailwinds. The analyst sees Microsoft delivering double-digit revenue growth for the fourth consecutive quarter driven by healthy fundamentals across all three major segments and 40% secular growth in commercial cloud. While investor sentiment is mixed on moderating Azure growth, Bracelin thinks it this is misplaced given usage-based Azure growth could remain in the triple digits.

Credit Suisse remains positive on Microsoft heading into Q4 results

The analyst highlights incremental U.S. dollar strength since the time of last guidance, but is constructive on fundamental business drivers. Zelnick expects continued momentum in commercial cloud, driven by Azure growth and Office 365 strength. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $115 price target on the shares.
