Apple removes links from podcast directory to Infowars content, WSJ reports

Apple (AAPL) has removed links from its podcast directory to content from controversial far-right site Infowars for failing to comply with guidelines that are designed to create a safe environment for users, including prohibitions on "hate themes," The Wall Street Journal reports. Apple "does not tolerate hate speech" and has "clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users," the company says, adding that "We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions." Infowars host Alex Jones recently was suspended from using his Facebook (FB) account and has also been suspended from broadcasting live on Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) YouTube. Reference Link

Apple price target raised to $199 from $184 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Tim Long raised his price target on Apple to $199 after its Q3 earnings beat and raise of its guidance, saying the results were driven by "better than seasonal" iPhone selling prices and strong Services segment. The analyst notes that ASPs declined about 8% in Q3 over the past two years, but only saw a 1% sequential decline this time. Long also keeps his Market Perform rating on Apple, saying the upside in the shares is limited because of valuation.

Apple price target raised to $235 from $207 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Walter Piecyk, in a note published last night, raised his price target on Apple (AAPL) shares to $235 from $207, stating that he believes there are early signs that upgrade rates might be bottoming and noting that iPhone revenue grew by over 20% despite "historic low" upgrade rates in Q3. Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted at a noteworthy content project, added Piecyk, who agrees with fellow BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield's view that Apple is likely to follow Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon's (AMZN) approach "build their way into the market rather than buy their way in" to video. Piecyk keeps a Buy rating on Apple shares.

Citi reiterates Sell on Fitbit, says not an acquisition target
Citi analyst Jim Suva reiterates a Sell rating on Fitbit (FIT) with a $5 price target following the company's Q2 results, which he notes were largely better than expected except for a decline in free cash flow. Apple's (AAPL) smart watch is smarter than Fitbit's (FIT) smartwatches, which do not allow "robust" two-way communication or a lengthy app catalog, and the price differential is immaterial, Suva tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Further, he does not see Fitbit as an acquisition target.

Apple stock to continue to outperform, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Wamsi Mohan kept his Buy rating and $230 price target on Apple after its Q3 earnings beat, also raising his FY18 EPS view to $11.77 from $11.59. In a research note titled "Five reasons to buy Apple post the quarter", the analyst says the stock should continue to outperform based on: 1) strong underlying iPhone demand and higher average selling prices; 2) gross margin upside from lower NAND memory prices; 3) strong capital returns; 4) continued strength of the Services segment; and 5) strong demand for wearable devices such as AirPods and the Apple Watch.

Twitter should trade at discount to Facebook, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst James Lee says that while Twitter (TWTR) reported "strong" Q2 results, EBITDA and implied revenue guidance for Q3 was below consensus by 16% and 6%, respectively. Management cited the health initiative that will slow down active user growth and increase operating expenditures due to headcount additions, Lee tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He keeps an Underperform rating on Twitter shares with a $25 price target, which represents 12.5 times his 2020 EBITDA estimate. The analyst believes the stock should trade at a discount to his Facebook (FB) target of 13.5 times EBITDA.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Edward Jones. 2. LogMeln (LOGM) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray and JPMorgan, to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital, and to Neutral from Outperform at Baird. 3. Nielsen (NLSN) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Daniel Salmon saying a material change in risk-reward amid deceleration of Emerging Buy, the announcement of CEO retirement, and the strategic review of the Buy segment. 4. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Summit Insights and to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill as well as Citi. 5. Deckers Brands (DECK) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Jim Duffy saying he is being "valuation aware" and thinks further meaningful upside may prove limited despite the company's Q1 report showing evidence of strong management execution towards their margin improvement plans.

Facebook price target lowered to $230 from $255 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson lowered his price target on Facebook to $230 but kept his Buy rating, saying investors should "take advantage" of the "second capitulation" in the stock. The analyst says the current valuation multiple is too low after the management's "aggressively conservative" outlook relative to consensus even though growth deceleration is nearing, with consensus pricing in about 15% of revenue slowdown in the next two quarters.

Baird analyst Colin Sebastian removed his Fresh Pick designation from Alphabet following the stock's recent price strength. While he believes fundamental trends remains favorable and he continues to expect strong growth, he believes the Street now has a better grasp on the benefits of AI and Machine Learning and moderating TAC growth, both of which underpinned his Fresh Pick thesis. Sebastian has an Outperform rating and $1,380 price target on Alphabet shares.

TripAdvisor upgraded to Hold from at Needham on non-hotel focus
As reported earlier, Needham analyst Laura Martin upgraded TripAdvisor (TRIP) to Hold from Underperform, saying that while the company's pivot to competing as an online travel agent has failed, its focus to grow its non-hotel businesses is a "higher ROI idea". The analyst is positive on the company's "experience aggregator" platform and its "enormous" traffic of 450M MAUs and 150M monthly unique hotel shoppers. The analyst remains concerned about Google (GOOG) and Booking Holdings (BKNG) and Expedia (EXPE) outspending TripAdvisor on travel accommodation advertising.

Amazon summit highlights long cloud growth runway, says Baird
After having attended the AWS Summit in Chicago this week, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said his talks with several enterprise IT decision makers highlight Amazon's "clear advantage" in product breadth and go-to-market capabilities despite the fact that cloud services competition is "undoubtedly intensifying" from Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure and Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google Cloud Platform. Most large-scale enterprises are still in the early days of cloud migration, which bodes well for the long-term growth outlook for AWS along with Azure and Google Cloud, Sebastian concluded. He keeps an Outperform rating and $2,100 price target on Amazon shares.

Microsoft price target raised to $120 from $115 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Tim Horan raised his price target on Microsoft (MSFT) to $120 and maintained an Outperform rating, telling investors in a research note that he remains "bullish." With enterprises in the steepest part of the S-curve adoption cycle of cloud, over the next few quarters, he says he expects strong results from Azure which benefits from AWS (AMZN)/Google (GOOG, GOOGL) channel conflicts and also sees upside surprises in Gaming, Search, Dynamics, Hardware and strong operating leverage.

Argus analyst Joseph Bonner raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,450 and kept his Buy rating after its "strong revenue growth" reported in Q2 in spite of the record setting European Commission fine. The analyst says the bearish case on Alphabet that the transition to mobile will lead to reduced use of its search and lower monetization is being negated by strong mobile search advertising revenue. Bonner also notes that the company's next-generation businesses - YouTube, Google Cloud, and Google Play - have also started to produced "significant" revenue growth.

2018 shaping up to be year of Google Cloud, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves says partner and customer feedback at Google Next in San Francisco last week was surprisingly bullish on the increasing adoption of G Suite, Google Cloud, and Chrome at enterprises. This was in stark contrast to prior Google Cloud events that he has attended over the past couple of years, signaling an important inflection point for Google Cloud in 2018, the analyst contends. For Alphabet, Hargreaves is encouraged with the progress of its cloud efforts and view it as a significant growth opportunity longer term with the potential to grow into a $30B-plus run-rate business exiting 2022. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $1,430 price target on the stock.
