VMware to deliver 'solid quarterly results', says RBC Capital

RBC Capital analyst Matthew Hedberg kept his Outperform rating and $172 price target on VMware (VMW) ahead of its earnings, saying the recent surveys and his positive meetings with the management during the quarter suggest the company will deliver "solid" results. The analyst maintains that "VMware is well-positioned to capitalize on hybrid-cloud adoption", adding he is also looking for signs of additional growth on its core-compute platform, Dell synergies, and its Amazon (AMZN) AWS partnership.

VMware price target raised to $190 from $161 at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Kash Rangan raised his price target on VMware (VMW) to $190 and kept his Buy rating, citing his "increased confidence in sustained mid-teens billings growth" as well as its better operating margins of 32% relative to 24% at competitor Red Hat (RHT). Rangan says that the reverse merger at Dell removes the overhang on VMware shares and should increase its valuation multiple in the long term. The analyst also states that his new valuation on the company implies a multiple of 19-times enterprise value to expected FY19 free cash flow, which is still a 15% discount to Red Hat's 22-times because of its slightly lower billings growth, but adds that VMware is still cheaper than Citrix (CTXS) in spite of its faster revenue growth.

VMware now formidable long-term competitor to NetScout, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst James Fish says VMware (VMW) is now a more formidable, long-term competitor to NetScout (NTCT) after it announced the acquisition of Dell-EMC's Service Assurance Suite. The analyst, however, believes the acquisition could create near-term opportunities for NetScout to gain market share. He reiterates an Overweight rating on NetScout shares with a $31 price target.

Barclays sees 'healthy' off-cycle results from U.S. software names
Barclays analyst Raimo Lenschow tells investors in a research note that he largely expects "healthy" Q2 off-cycle results from U.S. software names, but believes some names with high valuation or touch comps like Coupa Software (COUP) or MongoDB (MDB) could see relative underperformance following the print, and thinks VMware (VMW) and Pivotal (PVTL) provide better upside potential heading into the off-cycle period. The analyst says his VAR surveys for Salesforce (CRM) and VMware are "strong" for the quarter, showing that many resellers are seeing spending outperform initial expectations, and sees IT spending carrying through into positive estimate revisions. Specifically, the analyst sees upside for VMware going into its first earnings post the Dell transaction announcement and expects a "clean beat and raise" from Pivotal.

Wedbush analyst Jen Redding initiated Kohl's (KSS) with a Neutral rating and $75 price target, telling investors that she views Kohl's as a compelling story and sees opportunities for improvement in categories like private label, active and women's, and says Kohl's Rewards and Amazon (AMZN) pilots as potential catalysts. Longer term, Redding favors the name and sees shares of U.S.-focused retailers like Kohl's, Dillard's (DDS), Burlington Stores (BURL) and American Eagle (AEO) as good options in a year of a strong dollar.

Piper believes Amazon's ad business should be valued at $150B-$190B
Amazon.com's advertising business "has been quietly growing into a massive driver of current and future profitability," Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst estimates that in 2018, Amazon advertising revenue will be around $8B, potentially contributing greater than $3B to operating profit. By 2020, he expects Amazon ad revenue of $16B and by 2021, he believes it is highly likely that profits contributed from advertising will exceed those from Amazon Web Services. Applying an advertising comp multiple of 16 times to estimated 2020 Amazon advertising operating income suggests an ad business that should be valued at $150B-$190B, Olson contends. As such, he believes investors "should be focused on Amazon advertising now." The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Amazon shares with a $2,100 price target. The stock closed Friday down $12.22 to $1,886.30.

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. GOLDMAN SACHS CUTS ALNYLAM TO BUY: Goldman Sachs analyst Terence Flynn downgraded Alnylam (ALNY) to Buy from Conviction Buy. The analyst also lowered his price target for the shares to $155 from $193. Flynn said the lack of cardio data in the approved U.S. label for Onpattro is disappointing and could represent a disadvantage versus Pfizer's (PFE) competitor drug Tafamadis. Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff recommended buying shares of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals on weakness following the approval of Onpattro. Morgan Stanley analyst David Lebowitz lowered his price target to $93, Nomura Instinet analyst Christopher Marai lowered his price target to $73, and Stifel analyst Paul Matteis maintained a Buy rating but cut his price target to $123 from $125 and slightly lowered his revenue ramp for the drug based on modestly reduced share in mixed-phenotype haTTR patients and lower share in cardiac-only haTTR patients. B. Riley FBR analyst Madhu Kumar raised his price target to $230. RUBIUS THERAPEUTICS INITIATED AT MULTIPLE FIRMS: Rubius Therapeutics (RUBY) was initiated with an Outperform at Leerink, an Overweight at JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley, as well as a Buy at Jefferies. PIPER JAFFRAY SAYS AMAZON AD BUSINESS GROWING INTO PROFIT DRIVER: Amazon's (AMZN) advertising business "has been quietly growing into a massive driver of current and future profitability," Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson told investors in a research note. Applying an advertising comp multiple of 16 times to estimated 2020 Amazon advertising operating income suggests an ad business that should be valued at $150B-$190B, Olson contended. IMPERIAL CAPITAL CUTS NETFLIX PRICE TARGET TO $494: Imperial Capital analyst David Miller lowered his price target for Netflix (NFLX) to $494 after he slightly reduced his global subscriber estimates. The analyst said that in the "interest of being conservative," he decreased his fiscal 2018 global subscriber estimate to 141.2M from 141.4M and fiscal 2019 global subscriber estimate to 164.4M from 166.3M. DISH DOWNGRADED TO SELL AT MOFFETTNATHANSON: MoffettNathanson analyst Craig Moffett downgraded Dish (DISH) to Sell from Neutral with a price target of $29 and noted that while the reported Q2 business conditions in the core satellite TV business were "genuinely better" amid reduced churn and slower subscriber losses, the Spectrum segment -- which holds "all" of the company's equity value -- is worse.

Walmart price target raised to $112 from $100 at Argus
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".
