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.

iPhone ASP, guide imply iPX partially offsetting longer replacement cycle, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer believes June Apple's (AAPL) iPhone ASP and the guide imply broader penetration of iPhone X partially offsetting a longer replacement cycle. Within the Apple supply chain, the analyst continues to prefer content increase stories, and consistent track records of execution, helping insulate from demand softness. His top picks in the Apple supply chain are Broadcom (AVGO) and Skyworks (SWKS). Schafer remains sidelined on Cirrus Logic (CRUS) given lack of a near-term content expansion story, as well as on Qorvo (QRVO), as much of the benefit from the expected mid/high-band PAD win in the coming iPhone refresh appears modeled into expectations.

Apple's results positive for supply-chain companies, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh views Apple's (AAPL) "solid" results as positive for the company's supply-chain companies Broadcom (AVGO), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), Qorvo (QRVO), Skyworks (SWKS), and Synaptics (SYNA), as results indicate that demand has finally stabilized ahead of the new iPhone ramp. Additionally, lean channel commentary gets him incrementally more positive ahead of the new iPhone ramp, he contends. Vinh's favorite Apple supply-chain names are Broadcom, Qorvo, Skyworks, and Synaptics.

ObsEva price target raised to $31 from $23 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Peter Lawson raised his price target on ObsEva to $31 following the positive OBE2109 EDELWEISS data in endometriosis, saying the results "confirm comparable high dose efficacy to leader Elagolix" with better balanced pain benefit. Lawson adds that the 5-month bone data expected in Q4 of this year will further support the OBE2109 preferable profile, leading to the initiation of a Phase 3 endometriosis study in Q1 of 2019. The analyst is also positive on additional upside coming from the Nolasiban live birth rate data and OBE022 phase 2 read-out in Q4, keeping his Outperform rating on ObsEva.

Buy
Deciphera initiated with a Buy at Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Arlinda Lee initiated Deciphera with a Buy rating as she believes its Kinase switch control platform is attractive since it has generated three wholly owned, oral drug candidates that inhibit activation of oncologic driver kinases and can generate additional therapies. Lee has a $55 price target on Deciphera shares.

Buy
Deciphera initiated with a Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Peter Lawson initiated Deciphera (DCPH) with a Buy rating and a price target of $60, citing the company's differentiated position of developing kinase inhibitors that can hit multiple mutations, potentially better controlling cancer. Given its wholly owned pipeline of 3 clinical drugs, the lead of which is targeting Gastrointestinal stromal tumor in two phase 3 trials by the second half of this year, the analyst recommends that investors acquire shares ahead of those readouts. Lawson further states that other kinase targeting peer companies such as Loxo Oncology (LOXO), Blueprint Medicines (BPMC), and Mirati Therapeutics (MRTX) also point to significant upside amid clinical validation progress.

Deciphera price target raised to $65 from $38 at JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Konstantinos Aprilakis said he believes Deciphera's recently reported updated data from the ongoing Phase I study of DCC-2618 "strongly" supports the company's decision to initiate a pivotal trial in second-line GIST and bolsters his expectations that 2618 will prove superior to currently available therapies in earlier-line use. Ahead of what he expects to be the presentation of more detailed response data in earlier lines of GIST, as well as durability of response and median PFS results, later this year, Aprilakis raised his price target on Deciphera shares to $65 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

JPMorgan 'incrementally positive' on Alliance Data into earnigns
JPMorgan analyst Reginald Smith keeps a Neutral rating on Alliance Data but is "incrementally positive" on the shares into the company's Q2 results on July 19. The analyst raised his estimates and sees upside to management's prior Q2 outlook given commentary at investor conferences last month. He cites Alliance Data's relative valuation and potential for improved credit metrics for his incrementally positive stance. Smith, however, awaits "more consistency before getting more constructive on the name."

Alliance Data has 'goalpost' moved again by disappointing June, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic said he had thought Alliance Data's delinquencies would materially improve in June, but he is now hesitant to model improving delinquencies at September given that both delinquencies and net losses were worse than guidance recently provided at industry conferences and the firm's roadshow. The analyst, who thinks the "disappointing" June has moved the "goalpost" again for Alliance Data, keeps an Overweight rating on the stock but trimmed his price target to $301 from $304.

Jefferies analyst Surinder Thind assumed coverage of Alliance Data with a Buy rating and $280 price target. The company's long-term business fundamentals are intact but are being masked by a number of transitory events, Thind tells investors in a research note. He expects the stock's forward price-to-earnings multiple to re-rate from 9 times currently to 11 times as the headwinds dissipate.
