Groupon lawyer says IBM shakes down other tech companies, Reuters says

A lawyer for Groupon (GRPN) told a court in Delaware that IBM (IBM) has shaken down pretty much every major tech firm for patent fees, Reuters reports. IBM is suing the e-commerce company for $167M, claiming that it infringed four basic internet technology patents, the report says. "IBM has approached every significant company in the web technology space asserting patents against them," Groupon lawyer J. David Hadden said during cross-examination of IBM licensing executive Thomas McBride in federal court. Reference Link

Groupon upgraded to Neutral at UBS
As reported previously, UBS analyst Eric Sheridan upgraded Groupon to Neutral from Sell following its Q1 results, which continued a string of recent "very solid" earnings reports. The analyst cited management's laser focus on local commerce, scaling of its platform, the continued evolution of Groupon+, and management's job of framing the opportunity going forward. Sheridan raised its price target to $5.50 from $4.15 on Groupon shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Halliburton (HAL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners citing an increase in the firm's WTI crude forecast to $69/bbl for 2019. 2. Groupon (GRPN) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS with analyst Eric Sheridan citing its first quarter results, which continued a string of recent "very solid" earnings reports. 3. AIG (AIG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Yaron Kinar saying AIG reaching break-even underwriting in its "much-criticized" General Insurance business will serve as a catalyst for shares in the second half of 2018. 4. Carvana (CVNA) double upgraded to Buy from Sell at B. Riley FBR and upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank. 5. Wolverine World Wide (WWW) upgraded to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna.

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.

IBM price target lowered to $150 from $160 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner lowered her price target for IBM to $150 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares. IBM last night reported Q2 sales and earnings numbers that came in slightly ahead of Street estimates, but the beat was primarily driven by the benefit of the mainframe cycle, Scribner tells investors in a research note. Performance in IBM's other three businesses were "more mixed," with sales ex-hardware not growing year-over-year in constant currency, the analyst adds. She views the stock's risk/reward as balanced at current levels.

IBM report included reasons to be more optimistic, says Stifel
Stifel analyst David Grossman noted that IBM's Services revenue continued to improve in Q2 and he sees the turnaround in Services being the primary catalyst to drive IBM estimates and the stock's multiple higher over the next 12 months. While some have questioned the sustainability of revenue momentum and margin expansion, Grossman believes the market is overlooking tailwinds from restructuring actions he sees yielding about 150bp of margin tailwind in the second half and leverage from Services growth. He trimmed his price target to $178 from $182 and keeps a Buy rating on IBM shares.

IBM 'relatively clean' Q2 beat puts floor under valuation, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said IBM's report of a "relatively clean" beat in Q2 builds hope that the company's transformation is playing out and helps put a floor under the stock's valuation. The quarter "wasn't without blemishes," said Huberty, who pointed to cognitive revenue declines and gross margins struggling to stabilize, but another clean quarter in September could help the stock re-rate more meaningfully, she believes. Based on recent peer multiple compression, Huberty lowered her multiple for IBM and cut her price target to $185 from $198, but she keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

IBM Q2 Cognitive segment results 'disappointing', says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman lowered his price target on IBM to $172 from $175 and kept his Market Perform rating after its Q2 results. The analyst notes that while the company saw some progress on the services side and the Systems performance was better than expected, the Cognitive segment results were disappointing, particularly given that the business contains high-growth Watson and blockchain offerings. Bachman adds that the latest update on Cognitive segment is raising questions on whether IBM can sustain meaningful growth in operating income and free cash flows.
