Papa John's cuts FY18 adjusted EPS view to $1.30-$1.80 from $2.40-$2.60

Consensus $2.05. The recent negative publicity surrounding the company's brand negatively impacted July sales in North America. North America comparable sales for the July period decreased approximately 10.5%. At this time, the company cannot predict how long and the extent to which the negative customer sentiment will continue to impact future sales. In addition, the company expects to incur significant costs as a result of the recent negative publicity. Cuts FY18 North America comparable sales growth view to (10%)-(7%) from (3%) to flat.

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. STIFEL SAYS SELL PAPA JOHN'S: Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull downgraded Papa John's (PZZA) to Sell from Hold and cut his price target for the shares to $38 from $50. The outlook for Papa John's is "growing dimmer" after recent media reports indicated a "fraternal corporate culture," O'Cull told investors. The reports reinforce the consumer perception that Papa John's is not a trusted brand, the analyst added. His recent channel checks indicate the company's domestic same-restaurant-sales are running down in the mid-teens since last week's media report about the company's founder using a racial slur. Papa John's is in a "precarious position," as it needs a "strategic savior" but is struggling to find one "willing to underwrite a transaction given the brand damage," O'Cull contended. Papa John's shares are down 7% in midday trading BTIG SAYS BUY SPOTIFY: BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield initiated Spotify (SPOT) with a Buy rating and a price target of $230, saying that awaiting a better entry on the stock price "has not worked." The analyst contended that the company will be a "long-term winner" in the subscription music category that remains in its infancy and will "grow significantly for years to come." DEUTSCHE RAISES QUALCOMM TARGET TO $60: Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore raised his price target for Qualcomm (QCOM) shares to $60 from $55 after concluding that removal of the uncertainty from the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) deal likely leads to incremental upside in either scenario. The analyst said he has no way of assigning probabilities of deal approval given the politically charged nature of the pending regulatory ruling from China's State Administration for Market Regulation. Seymore kept Hold ratings on both Qualcomm and NXP. ARGUS CUTS GE TO HOLD: Argus analyst John Eade downgraded General Electric (GE) to Hold from Buy, saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. Eade lowered his FY18 EPS forecast to 97c from $1.03, adding that GE will need to show at least two quarter of progress before he would reconsider his rating. The analyst prefers other large industrials such as Illinois Tool Works (ITW), United Technologies (UTX) and Boeing (BA) over General Electric, he added.

Papa John's upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Alexander Slagle upgraded Papa John's International to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $58 from $52. The stock, down 50% from highs, now reflects the likelihood that fundamentals will get worse before improving, Slagle tells investors in a research note. After reviewing the company's potential path to recovery and possible strategic actions that could create shareholder value, the analyst has a bull case of $75 per share. He thinks this outweighs the bear case, or downside risk, of $35 per share. Papa John's closed yesterday down 10c to $41.96.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AutoZone (AZO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Mike Baker saying Improving comps and fundamentals, coupled with a stock that has underperformed year-to-date, has brought a "compelling" valuation. 2. Pandora (P) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Mahaney saying the company's double-digit organic revenue growth and declining EBITDA losses were driven by improving execution, adding that while the 2% active listener hours decline is a worry, the valuation on the stock is "undemanding" given its expected annualized revenue growth of about 10% over the next 3 years. 3. Papa John's (PZZA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Alexander Slagle saying the stock, down 50% from highs, now reflects the likelihood that fundamentals will get worse before improving. 4. Electronic Arts (EA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Joseph Bonner saying the latest pullback in the stock price after the company's recent Q1 earnings report offers a favorable entry point. 5. Sarepta (SRPT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Matthew Harrison saying the stock is down about 34% since June 19 after having moved up by about 50% when its initial DMD gene therapy data was announced.

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. JEFFERIES UPGRADES DROPBOX TO BUY: Jefferies analyst John DiFucci upgraded Dropbox (DBX) to Buy from Hold with an unchanged price target of $32. The analyst is not making a call on the Q2 results, which come on August 9. Rather, the upgrade is based "entirely on valuation," he stated. Dropbox is up 4.7% in late morning trading. JEFFERIES UPGRADES PAPA JOHN'S: Jefferies analyst Alexander Slagle upgraded Papa John's (PZZA) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $58 from $52. The stock, down 50% from highs, now reflects the likelihood that fundamentals will get worse before improving, Slagle said. After reviewing the company's potential path to recovery and possible strategic actions that could create shareholder value, the analyst has a bull case of $75 per share. He thinks this outweighs the bear case, or downside risk, of $35 per share. SAREPTA UPGRADED AFTER PULLBACK: Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Harrison upgraded Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) to Overweight from Equal Weight, noting that the stock has given up much of the gains it saw when its initial DMD gene therapy data was announced. He sees the pullback as an opportunity to own the stock near pre-DMD gene therapy levels without taking the binary risk. He doesn't think a major bear case has emerged on the prospects for the company's DMD gene therapy program and he sees major catalysts in the second half of this year that he believes the market is missing. Harrison has a $163 price target on Sarepta shares. PIPER CUTS SHOPIFY TO NEUTRAL: Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson downgraded Shopify (SHOP) to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target to $145 from $155, saying that Shopify's Q2 was "good, but not good enough" with monthly recurring revenue below investor expectations. While Olson said Shopify is performing well, he believes their performance is mostly reflected in the stock's current valuation. PIPER RECOMMENDS BIOGEN AFTER MANAGEMENT MEETING: After hosting investor meetings with Biogen (BIIB) investor relations this week, Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond came away feeling like the "all-important" high-dose APOE4 subset analysis of the BAN2401 results "may be provided sooner than later." If shown to have little impact on the overall placebo-adjusted ADCOMS benefit, this should be an important event, Raymond said. Coupling this with "continued solid commercial momentum and a host of other value-enhancing catalysts," the analyst continues to like the risk/reward on Biogen. He kept an Overweight rating on shares with a $400 price target.
