Match Group price target raised to $52 from $45 at BMO Capital

BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Match Group (MTCH) to $52 after its Q2 earnings beat and raised FY18 guidance, saying its Tinder platform continues to exceed expectations while the rest of the portfolio shows stability. Salmon adds that Tinder's subscription growth and pricing power position Match Group as a "sustainable long-term" story within the expanding total addressable market, even as the entry of Facebook (FB) into the online dating industry gets closes. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Match Group.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. UMC (UMC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Bernstein with analyst Mark Li saying he believes the company will deliver a better capital return. 2. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James with analyst Pavel Molchanov saying the government's "dramatic intervention" in late May to slash diesel prices in response to a national trucker strike is largely reflected in valuation. 3. Apache (APA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Bill Selesky citing the impact of rising crude oil prices as well as the management's strategy of allocating nearly 70% of its FY18 capital spending program to production in the Permian basin. 4. Match Group (MTCH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brent Thill saying a survey of 600 online daters shows many users do not wish to commingle dating with social media. 5. First Data (FDC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst James Schneider saying despite "choppy" fundamentals, the company's revenue growth is poised to improve.

Paid subscriptions for Match's Tinder tracking ahead of consensus, says Aegis
Aegis analyst Victor Anthony said his analysis of Tinder app MAUs in the second quarter-to-date lead him to believe Tinder is exceeding the consensus estimate of 250K Tinder average paid net additions by a "comfortable margin." He thinks this suggests Tinder continues to incrementally benefit from the Gold launch with higher than expected renewal rates, Anthony tells investors. The analyst maintains a Buy rating and $47 price target on Match Group shares.

Match Group beat Q2 expectations across the board, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Kunal Madhukar increased his price target for Match Group to $50 from $47 citing the company's beat and raise quarter. Match beat Q2 expectations across the board and raised its full-year outlook primarily on continued strength at Tinder and stabilization at the other brands, Madhukar tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst has increased confidence in Match's ability to continue to drive elevated growth as it builds new products, new features, integrates Hinge and expands deeper into international markets. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

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.

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.

Facebook added to Stifel Select List, Amazon removed
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt replaced Amazon (AMZN) with Facebook (FB) on the Stifel Select List, citing the strong year-to-date performance of Amazon shares, which he still likes and keeps a Buy rating upon. He believes Facebook expectations, and the shares, are appropriately set to allow for longer-term outperformance given the material reset that followed the company's "painful" Q2 update, Devitt tells investors. He maintains a Buy rating and $202 price target on Facebook.

Applied Optoelectronics price target raised to $28 from $20 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Richard Shannon raised his price target for Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) to $28 from $20 following a "strong" Q2 result, driven by strong upside from Data Center, specifically Facebook (FB). The analyst thinks most of the upside was from lack of supply from a competitor he believes to be Intel (INTC). He reiterates a Sell rating on Applied Optoelectronics shares.
