Enterprise value of Alphabet's Waymo raised to $175B at Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak increased his enterprise value estimate for Alphabet's Waymo unit from $75B for ride sharing only to $175B given his analyses for two other emerging business models, namely logistics and licensing. He believes Waymo remains on track to launch an autonomous ride hailing service in Phoenix this year and believes this business could be worth about $80B over the long-term. Partnerships with Walmart (WMT), DDR (DDR) and Peterbilt speak to Waymo's logistics focus, said Nowak, who sees the company potentially having a $90B logistics business. Additionally, he sees a roughly $7B licensing opportunity, pointing to the company's FCA (FCAU) relationship as a model of how companies could pay a license fee to Waymo for its autonomous technology. Given his view of Waymo being a key part of Alphabet's long-term value, Nowak raised his sum of the parts valuation to $1,550 from $1,400. He has an Overweight rating and $1,325 price target on Alphabet shares.

Boeing, Tesla, Nvidia make Morgan Stanley 'key man risk' list
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mark Savino noted that about 12% of CEO jobs among S&P 500 companies turned over in 2017, noting that this was the highest level of CEO departures since before the financial crisis. The 59 stocks of S&P 500 companies that had CEOs depart in 2017 underperformed the market by 11% over the next 12 months, or since the departure for instances that were less than 12 months ago, noted Savino. In cooperation with the firm's U.S. analysts, Savino and his team identified the companies in each sector they believe face the greatest level of "key man risk," which includes: Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA), ADT Inc. (ADT), Moody's (MCO), TransUnion (TRU), Arista Networks (ANET), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca-Cola (KO), Monster Beverage (MNST), Coupa Software (COUP), Salesforce (CRM), FireEye (FEYE), MongoDB (MDB), Microsoft (MSFT), New Relic (NEWR), XPO Logistics (XPO), Hilton (HLT), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Best Buy (BBY), Ulta (ULTA), Aflac (AFL), Athene Holding (ATH), Lincoln National (LNC), Arthur J.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Through buybacks and expense reductions, the company can fully replace the lost earnings from Walmart (WMT), Hecht tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Buy rating on the shares with a $50 price target. Barclays this morning downgraded Synchrony to Equal Weight.

The analyst said he sees a potential opportunity for TSYS (TSS) to provide the issuer processing services for this contract given its strong relationship with Capital One. He views TSYS as a good idea with its price likely to drift to roughly $100 per by year-end. Koning reiterated his Outperform rating and $102 price target on TSYS shares.

Castlight Health loss of Walmart overshadows Q2 beat, says Cantor
Castlight Health's (CSLT) beat in Q2 was overshadowed by the loss of large client Walmart (WMT) and the initiation of a cost-restructuring program to mitigate the loss of revenue in 2019, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper tells investors in a research note. Despite positive discussions recently, Walmart decided not to renew and migrate to Complete, the analyst adds. With 25% upside potential to his $5 price target, the analyst maintains an Overweight rating on Castlight amid the post-earnings selloff.

UBS analyst Eric Wasserstrom upgraded Synchrony Financial (SYF) to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $33 from $32. Cost reductions and "significantly" greater expected share repurchases help offer the loss of the Walmart (WMT) portfolio next year, Wasserstrom tells investors in a research note. The analyst still sees an unclear outlook for Synchrony, but raised his estimates and says the valuation is now low enough for an upgrade to Neutral.

SemGroup (SEMG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Michael Blum saying he believes its growth trajectory is mostly reflected in valuation. 2.

Nektar (NKTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at H.C. Wainwright with analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay saying an updated cut of NKTR-214 data presented at an investor conference on June 06, does not assuage fears on the outlook of NKTR-214 in the post ECHO-301, immuno-oncology combination therapy landscape. 5.

Fiat shares should deliver the best earnings momentum among the European car manufacturers in the coming quarters, Hummel tells investors in a research note.

Santander Consumer, Fiat Chrysler tolling agreement doesn't change much, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John Hecht notes that Santander Consumer (SC) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) entered a tolling agreement that allows both parties additional time to assess their rights, obligations, claims, etc. while not having to worry about the statute of limitations. The analyst believes the tolling agreement does not change much of what is going on. Nonetheless, Hecht notes that the companies also acknowledged they are working to resolve the matter tied to the captive finance, with the agreement indicating that a resolution on this matter may come in months rather than quarters. He reiterates a Buy rating and $25 price target on Santander Consumer shares.

Danone (DANOY) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst James Jones saying he now has less "punitive" assumptions about the company's sales growth and capital expenditures as its profits have become less reliant on dairy. 3. Hexcel (HXL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Ken Herbert stating he believes the acceleration in growth expected in 2018 will continue into 2019. 4. Qorvo (QRVO) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Michael McConnell citing healthy China smartphone trends, stabilizing Apple (AAPL) iPhone demand, and greater than expected market share gains in China smartphones. 5. Advanced Energy (AEIS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Pavel Molchanov saying the company's 9% free cash flow yield has turned the shares into an appealing deep value story, despite slowing organic growth.
