Facebook price target raised to $275 from $175 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield raised his price target on Facebook (FB) to $275 and kept his Buy rating, saying the company's Instagram business is helping to grow its Mobile Time Spent operating metric. The analyst notes that Instagram now has over 1B users pay day with over 400M stories, calling that growth to the size twice as large as Snapchat (SNAP) "stunning". The analyst also states that consumers "simply could not care less" about the company's privacy practices over the past several years in spite of the regulatory scrutiny in that area across multiple countries. Greenfield contends that Facebook's personal content shift "has notably improved the quality" of the core experience on its platform, positioning the company as a "must-have utility to all demographics."

Nomura Instinet initiates coverage on Americas Internet
Nomura Instinet initiated coverage on nine names within the Americas Internet sector. The firm believes, overall, that there is "still some room for growth in digital advertising for the foreseeable future" and believes it will be led primarily by digital video and social, and primarily on mobile devices. The firm added that, as a result of slowing user growth and already high internet penetration, the growth will likely be led by pricing, rather than volume, and the consistent shift away from offline to online media. Nomura Instinet forecast the global digital advertising market "will grow at a 15% five-year CAGR through 2020 as digital ads work toward constituting half of total advertising spend," which the firm expects to occur in 2020. Nomura Instinet initiated Alphabet Class A (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Spotify (SPOT) with Buy ratings, and added that Alphabet and Facebook were the best positioned in this newly regulated industry. It initiated Netflix (NFLX), Snap (SNAP), Trade Desk (TTD), Criteo (CRTO), and Pandora (P) with Neutral ratings. It initiated Twitter (TWTR) with a Reduce rating, saying that while it is a "stable long-term asset that has something for everyone," the firm believes the market is pricing in "a significant advertising reacceleration that implies a shift in ad spend," while the firm expects "stability instead of a reacceleration of growth."

Snap's Q2 could be 'choppy,' but upbeat 2H seen, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler maintained an Overweight rating and $16 price target on Snap ahead of the company's Q2 earnings, which could include revenue and DAU in-line to slightly below consensus, he tells investors in a research note. Sandler says he thinks Snap may be "getting out of the woods" in 2H with a new CFO, a new Android stack and lapping the CPM reductions, and says he would add to positions on any weakness related to Q2.

Twitter valuation 'the primary factor that gives us pause,' says Barclays
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler maintained an Underweight rating and $24 price target on Twitter (TWTR) ahead of its quarterly earnings, telling investors in a research note that while he thinks the company will report "solid" revenue and EBITDA, the company, like Facebook (FB) and Snap (SNAP), will have issues with MAU around GDPR and account clean up. However, he says the company is executing well on its turnaround, checks are pointing to advertisers allocating more to Twitter, which should support mid-20%s O+O ad revenue growth, and says valuation remains the major factor "that gives us pause."

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. MOSAIC DOUBLE UPGRADED: BofA Merrill Lynch double upgraded Mosaic (MOS) to Buy from Underperform and raised its price target to $35 from $24. Analyst Steve Byrne said he believes 2018 will mark a bottom in global phosphate utilization rates and now believes there is more upside risk to consensus estimates as the cycle improves. Mosiac was higher by 3.5% approaching midday. BTIG SAYS BUY LIVE NATION: BTIG analyst Brandon Ross upgraded Live Nation (LYV) to Buy from Neutral with a $60 price target, saying he is now more convinced that the company will outperform expectations amid inflecting growth with an added possibility of M&A. Despite the tough comparisons, Ross notes that Live Nation should "handily" top operating income consensus in FY18 and going forward, having built an "insurmountable" competitive float in U.S. markets, and that its mid-teens EBITDA growth is "the new normal". WHIRLPOOL CUT AFTER EARNINGS: Longbow analyst David MacGregor downgraded Whirlpool (WHR) to Neutral from Buy after the company reported Q2 earnings that missed the firm's "Street low" estimate of $3.55, calling its quarter "disappointing across most dimensions of the business." Expectations for a recovery in the EMEA region are being pushed out to beyond 2020, noted MacGregor, who is waiting for after the company's earnings call to reassess his view of its earnings prospects. MIZUHO CALLS EOG 'THE APPLE OF OIL': Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey started EOG Resources (EOG) with a Buy rating and $173 price target, calling EOG -- his top pick in the group -- the Apple (AAPL) of oil. EOG has been a pioneer in unconventional oil development in the U.S. and its technology-driven, innovation-focused approach will continue to drive peer-leading rates of return and oil growth, the analyst contended. EOG was up 2.6% near midday. SUSQUEHANNA RAISES ALPHABET TARGET TO $1,500: After Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Q2 earnings report on Monday night, many analyst firms raised their price targets on the name. The highest of those targets was from Susquehanna analyst Shyam Patil, who raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,500 from $1,250. The analyst cited the "impressive" sites revenue growth acceleration, which he sees as evidence that the secular momentum for the ads business remains in place. Patil reiterated his Positive rating on Alphabet shares. Class A shares of Google's parent were up over 4% to $1,260.80 at time of writing.

After Google (GOOGL) announced that its new Cloud Services Platform will include a Google Kubernetes Engine, or GKE, that can be run on-premise, KeyBanc analyst Alex Kurtz said the offering creates a new participant in the container management/PaaS market. However, he still sees Red Hat (RHT) and Pivotal Software (PVTL) being well-positioned given their well-established PaaS go-to-market strategies, Kurtz added.

SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,370 and kept his Buy rating after its "clean" Q2 earnings beat, which he contends reflect advertisers' continued success in deriving return on investment from Search, YouTube, and other emerging platforms. The analyst adds that even though the company is in the middle of an investment cycle, better revenue growth should help absorb the higher operating and capital expenditure while driving strong free cash flows. Squali also continues to see the GDPR and the antitrust rulings in Europe against the company as medium to long-term risks for Alphabet.

BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,150 and kept his Market Perform rating after its Q2 results, saying that while the revenue growth rates driven by investment are "strongest they've been in years", margins remain under pressure. The analyst states that he is comfortable with his neutral stance because of the company's margin profile and the rapid pace of capital expenditure increase, as EBITDA margins have fallen over 150bps "even after backing out one-time performance related fees". Salmon also sees the risk of a FY18 EBITDA margin miss rising higher.

The analyst also cites greater visibility on monetization and opportunities in WhatsApp and Messenger justifying a higher multiple, which he sees at a full 3-point discount relative to Google (GOOGL) in spite of Facebook's much higher rate of growth.

Across his coverage, he is shifting his view to incrementally favor mega cap U.S. digital advertising over e-commerce outside of China in the near-term as digital advertising growth momentum continues and he sees the potential for multiple expansion. Devitt keeps a Buy rating on Facebook and raised his price target on the stock to $242 from $202.

Pachter anticipates that ad pricing growth will again drive results this quarter, following double-digit year-over-year increases in each of the past five quarters, and that revenue growth will remain "robust." Pachter says he believes Facebook will weather the controversy surround its Cambridge Analytica data breach and the implementation of GDPR in Europe, and he sees Facebook making continued investments in delivering advertising for Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, which are likely to yield major returns in the coming years. Shares of Facebook are on the Wedbush Investment Committee's Best Idea List.

The analyst's industry checks suggest Facebook continues to see strong demand from a large and growing advertiser base and that return on investment "remains very compelling." Anmuth keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $242 price target.
