On The Fly: Top five weekend stock stories

Catch up on the weekend's top five stories with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Volkswagen (VLKAY) CEO Herbert Diess was told about the existence of cheating software in cars two months before regulators blew the whistle on the exhaust emissions scandal, according to Reuters, citing the German magazine Der Spiegel. 2. Walmart (WMT) and Flipkart announced the closing of the agreements for Walmart to become the largest shareholder in the Flipkart. With the completion of the investment, Walmart now holds approximately 77% of Flipkart. The remainder of the business is held by other shareholders, including Flipkart co-founder Binny Bansal, Tencent (TCEHY), Tiger Global and Microsoft (MSFT). At the time the company disclosed the transaction, the estimated impact to FY19 EPS was a negative 25c-30c assuming the transaction closed mid-year. Consistent with guidance at the time of its second quarter earnings report, the company anticipates this level of EPS impact, prorated for the close date. In FY20, Walmart continues to anticipate a headwind to EPS of around 60c. 3. At the moment, State Street (STT) is the worst-performing major bank stock so far this year as investors have worried since it announced a $2.6B acquisition of Charles River Development, Andrew Bary wrote in this week's edition of Barron's. But the selloff looks overdone, Bary added, noting that State Street has one of the lower price/earnings ratios among large banks and an attractive fee-based business model of focusing on custodial services and asset management. Overall, a low valuation makes the stock attractive, Barron's said. 4. Warner Bros. (TWX) "Crazy Rich Asians" led this weekend's box office with a three-day North American debut of $25.2M and a five-day bow of $34M. The movie scored the top opening for a rom-com in three years and the top start of the year for any comedy. "Crazy Rich Asians" earned an A CinemaScore and sports a 92% Rotten Tomatoes score. 5. Kohl's (KSS), BrightView (BV), Verizon (VZ), AbbVie (ABBV), LyondellBasell (LYB), Broadcom (AVGO), Regions Financial (RF), Starbucks (SBUX), CF Industries (CF), Mosaic (MOS) and Nutrien (NTR) saw positive mentions in Barron's, while Walmart was mentioned cautiously.

As VW appointment drives Navistar speculation, Jefferies sees eventual buyout
Noting that Navistar (NAV) shares are rising amid broader market weakness today following a Reuters report that Volkswagen (VLKAY) has appointed a new CFO noted to be an M&A expert, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann said he continues to believe Volkswagen will pursue full ownership of Navistar, although he calls the timing of such an event "highly uncertain." He maintains a Buy rating and "Street high" price target of $53 on Navistar shares.

Jefferies lists buys on 'wildly overdone' electric truck concerns
The ramp of electric trucks amp may be slower than in passenger cars, and incumbent truck makers are likely to remain key players, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann tells investors in a research note. To a much greater extent than in passenger vehicles, commercial vehicle sales rely on uptime and return on investment, and are driven by brand relationship and dealer support, Volkmann adds. He views the "terminal multiple" concerns for established truck players as "wildly overdone" and recommends buying shares of Paccar (PCAR), Navistar (NAV), Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Volvo (VOLVY).

VW acquisition scenario supports $53 Navistar target, says Jefferies

Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Walmart (WMT) to $112, citing the company's decade-best Q2 comps growth and a positive update on its e-commerce business, which grew by 40% in Q1. Graja also notes that online grocery sales were strong, as the department delivered its best comps growth in 9 years to retain its competitive position against Amazon's (AMZN) Whole Foods unit. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Walmart and contends that the company is immune to the primary risk of "irrelevance" for retailers, stating that it plays an "important" role in the economy with its buying power and "logistical prowess".

The analyst notes that while margins are declining from investments in pricing, labor, and technology - costs that will not go away soon - the spending can produce higher leverage. Ciccarelli keeps his Sector Perform rating on Walmart, saying the valuation multiple of 20-times expected EBIT seems expensive, but would look for an opportunity to become more constructive based on the company's improvements.

In a research note to investors, Horvers says that several years of e-commerce initiatives are paying off, but likely at the expense of medium-term profits and that Walmart's large market share and mix in the lower-growth grocery category make the transition more difficult from a financial perspective.

He added that, perhaps, the comp strength is a sign that the company is reaching into Amazon's (AMZN) higher income consumer base and said the full year goal of 40% e-commerce growth now seems achievable. Following the report, Gutman increased his price target on Walmart shares to $98, though he maintains an Equal Weight rating, stating that he sees comps slowing to less than 2% as its greatest near-term risk.

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.

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.

China approval freeze creates buying opportunity in Activision, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Timothy O'Shea said he views China having frozen mobile game approvals as a temporary problem and "mostly a non-issue" as only the monetization approval process has been frozen, not the content approval process, and he note administrators are already implementing a fast-track approval process to alleviate the problem. Activision Blizzard's (ATVI) upcoming Call of Duty mobile game was expected to launch in China this year, but O'Shea said this is a smaller game that is not in his estimates, adding that Tencent (TCEHY) gets 70% of the revenue under its deal for the game. Activision has a pipeline of new mobile games coming that he would still expect to launch in China over time and O'Shea sees the 15% pullback in the game maker's shares in the last month as a buying opportunity, he tells investors. He maintains a Buy rating and $90 price target on Activision Blizzard shares.

This ruling sends a "clear message to other industry players" and market uncertainty on deal prospects could fall, which could mean that equity values will likely rise accordingly, Swinburne tells investors. He notes there remains a large gap, which may now narrow, between private market valuations and public multiples in many parts of media and cable, pointing to Discovery Inc.

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. MCDONALD'S CUT TO NEUTRAL: Cleveland Research analyst Steven Gojak downgraded McDonald's (MCD) to Neutral from Buy after his industry checks led him to believe that its comparable sale results in the second half will trend more in-line with consensus expectations. Gojak, who is still modeling Q2 U.S. comp sales growth of 3.7% for McDonald's, which is above the 3.1% consensus growth view, lowered his 2018 U.S. comp estimate to 3.2% from 3.4%, compared to the consensus of 3.1% growth. McDonald's is down 1% in midday trading. NOMURA INITIATES INTERNET SECTOR: Nomura Instinet initiated coverage on the Americas Internet sector. Nomura Instinet initiated Alphabet Class A (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Spotify (SPOT) with Buy ratings, and added that Alphabet and Facebook were the best positioned in this newly regulated industry. It initiated Twitter (TWTR) with a Reduce rating, saying that while it is a "stable long-term asset that has something for everyone," the firm believes the market is pricing in "a significant advertising reacceleration that implies a shift in ad spend," while the firm expects "stability instead of a reacceleration of growth." CREDIT SUISSE POSITIVE ON VERIZON, NEGATIVE ON AT&T: Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson initiated Verizon (VZ) with an Outperform rating and a price target of $58. The analyst believes Verizon should benefit from its "major $10B cost savings plan, stable capex spending, record low churn, and the benefit of tax reform." Mitchelson also initiated AT&T (T) with an Underperform rating and a price target of $29. Mitchelson said that AT&T will require greater scale and a shift to global direct-to-consumer distribution, stating that the elevated execution risk under its ownership structure and its wireless business look mature with little chance for stabilization in spite of the coming 5G technology. DISNEY VALUATION NOT COMPELLING: Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson initiated Disney (DIS) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $114. The analyst noted that the company is "the best positioned traditional media company", but believes the Street has not sufficiently discounted the costs associated with Disney's push into direct-to-consumer streaming services, adding that FY19 will be extra challenging because of high film comps and major theme park project launches.

Deutsche Bank analyst Matthew Niknam tells investors in a research note that two recent data points support his positive view on the U.S. wireless sector, saying that the recent VerizonFirst (VZ) and T-Mobile (TMUS) Uncarrier moves are aimed at further improving customer retention and do not disrupt industry pricing. Net net, the analyst continues to like Buy-rated Verizon as a beneficiary of improving Wireless industry trends, upside optionality via 5G launches, and discounted valuation.

Citi says Myovant may have $102 upside if relugolix priced at parity to elagolix
After AbbVie (ABBV) and Neurocrine Biosciences (NBIX) announced that the FDA approved elagolix and Neurocrine said the list price has been set at $28 per day, Citi analyst Robyn Karnauskas noted that she currently models Myovant Sciences' (MYOV) relugolix priced at $10 per day. Modeling relugolix pricing at parity to elagolix and assuming a gross-to-net of 100% would lead to a fair value estimate for Myovant of $146, or the equivalent of $102 of upside from her current price target of $44, Karnauskas stated. The analyst, who models a split market between relugolix and elagolix in endometriosis, keeps a Buy rating on Myovant shares.

Worries about AbbVie's Humira keep Piper Jaffray on sidelines
Piper Jaffray analyst Christopher Raymond said he finds "little to quibble with" in AbbVie's Q2 report, but also noted that while its FY18 EPS guidance was raised, its revenue guidance actually came down slightly. Raymond, who continues to worry that consensus does not fully factor in the extent of ex-U.S. Humira pressure or the further pressure from co-pay accumulator programs in the U.S., prefers to stay on the sidelines and keeps a Neutral rating on the shares. He also lowered his price target on AbbVie to $100 from $105.

ObsEva price target raised to $44 from $30 at H.C. Wainwright
H.C. Wainwright analyst Raghuram Selvaraju raised his price target for ObsEva (OBSV) to $44 based on the disclosed pricing for AbbVie's (ABBV) Orilissa, the fgonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor antagonist for endometriosis and uterine fibroids. ObsEva management had previously guided to the cost of GnRH receptor antagonist therapy at $15 per day, about $450 per month, and the proposed monthly cost of Orilissa at $845 "appears to be comfortably above this level," Selvaraju tells investors in a research note. As such, the analyst elected to revise his pricing assumptions upward for ObsEva's linzagolix to reflect a daily cost of $25. He keeps a Buy rating on ObsEva shares.

AbbVie most exposed to biosimilar risk, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Vamil Divan reiterated an Underperform rating on AbbVie after the FDA further ramped up its focus on biosimilars. In a research note to investors, Divan said he was "intrigued" by the FDA's decision to withdraw its September 2017 Draft Guidance focused on evaluating analytical similarity with biosimilars, and believes the agency will release "more reasonable" guidance in the coming months that will expedite the approval and uptake of biosimilars. AbbVie is most exposed to Biosimilar risk, Divan says, with Humira accounting for about 60% of its total net present value, and is cautious on AbbVie's outlook in front of biosimilar competition in the EU later this year and in the U.S. by 2023.

Morgan Stanley downgrades semiconductor industry view to Cautious
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said he has become less constructive on semiconductor stocks through the year and he now believes elevated inventory levels and stretched lead times leave "no margin for error." Given his view that any lead time adjustment or demand slowdown could drive a "meaningful correction," Moore has downgraded his semiconductor industry view to Cautious from In-Line. He favors connector companies, like Amphenol (APH) and TE Connectivity (TEL) over analog/MCU at this point in the cycle, due to lower risk around lead time issues, Moore said. He also has a "strong preference" for high margin and more defensive models, such as Analog Devices (ADI) over lower margin and commodity exposed ones, like Cypress Semiconductor (CY) and ON Semiconductor (ON), he said. Despite his more cautious view on the space, Moore keeps Overweight ratings on Nvidia (NVDA), Xilinx (XLNX) and Ambarella (AMBA), citing his view that they should benefit from secular growth in the area of AI, data center, and autonomous. Other semiconductor names include Microchip (MCHP), Qorvo (QRVO), Micron (MU), Intel (INTC), Broadcom (AVGO) and Qualcomm (QCOM).

The analyst, however, continues to see "substantial value" in the opportunity for long-term store growth in China, ongoing leverage of the recently announced Nestle alliance, and the ongoing premiumization of the brand on a global scale through the growth of the roastery and reserve bar locations.

Strelzik adds that Starbucks' "overlap metrics are near or above the previous highs", while the company's focus on opening stores in the under-penetrated markets "isn't moving the needle".

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. MOSAIC DOUBLE UPGRADED: BofA Merrill Lynch double upgraded Mosaic (MOS) to Buy from Underperform and raised its price target to $35 from $24. Analyst Steve Byrne said he believes 2018 will mark a bottom in global phosphate utilization rates and now believes there is more upside risk to consensus estimates as the cycle improves. Mosiac was higher by 3.5% approaching midday. BTIG SAYS BUY LIVE NATION: BTIG analyst Brandon Ross upgraded Live Nation (LYV) to Buy from Neutral with a $60 price target, saying he is now more convinced that the company will outperform expectations amid inflecting growth with an added possibility of M&A. Despite the tough comparisons, Ross notes that Live Nation should "handily" top operating income consensus in FY18 and going forward, having built an "insurmountable" competitive float in U.S. markets, and that its mid-teens EBITDA growth is "the new normal". WHIRLPOOL CUT AFTER EARNINGS: Longbow analyst David MacGregor downgraded Whirlpool (WHR) to Neutral from Buy after the company reported Q2 earnings that missed the firm's "Street low" estimate of $3.55, calling its quarter "disappointing across most dimensions of the business." Expectations for a recovery in the EMEA region are being pushed out to beyond 2020, noted MacGregor, who is waiting for after the company's earnings call to reassess his view of its earnings prospects. MIZUHO CALLS EOG 'THE APPLE OF OIL': Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey started EOG Resources (EOG) with a Buy rating and $173 price target, calling EOG -- his top pick in the group -- the Apple (AAPL) of oil. EOG has been a pioneer in unconventional oil development in the U.S. and its technology-driven, innovation-focused approach will continue to drive peer-leading rates of return and oil growth, the analyst contended. EOG was up 2.6% near midday. SUSQUEHANNA RAISES ALPHABET TARGET TO $1,500: After Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Q2 earnings report on Monday night, many analyst firms raised their price targets on the name. The highest of those targets was from Susquehanna analyst Shyam Patil, who raised his price target on Alphabet to $1,500 from $1,250. The analyst cited the "impressive" sites revenue growth acceleration, which he sees as evidence that the secular momentum for the ads business remains in place. Patil reiterated his Positive rating on Alphabet shares. Class A shares of Google's parent were up over 4% to $1,260.80 at time of writing.
