Lumentum selloff provides attractive entry point, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee believes the post-earnings pullback in shares of Lumentum (LITE) provides an attractive entry point. However, he keeps a Neutral rating on Lumentum with an $80 price target. The shares sold off yesterday as management chose to provide conservative 3D Sensing revenue guidance for fiscal Q2 ahead of greater visibility into market share development and inventory position with its primary customer, Apple (AAPL), on next generation phones expected to be launched in September, Chatterjee tells investors in a research note. Based on his conversations with management, Chatterjee believes the softer guide is driven entirely by a lower market share assumption and budgeting for inventory timing "purely out of conservatism." This increases the likelihood of an upside surprise, the analyst contends.

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.

Citi reiterates Sell on Fitbit, says not an acquisition target
Citi analyst Jim Suva reiterates a Sell rating on Fitbit (FIT) with a $5 price target following the company's Q2 results, which he notes were largely better than expected except for a decline in free cash flow. Apple's (AAPL) smart watch is smarter than Fitbit's (FIT) smartwatches, which do not allow "robust" two-way communication or a lengthy app catalog, and the price differential is immaterial, Suva tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Further, he does not see Fitbit as an acquisition target.

Apple has been a long speculated customer of Arista, but the iPhone maker "is not known to readily disclose its use of third party technologies," noted Kurtz, who has an Overweight rating on Arista shares.

After visiting Tesla's Freemont facility, Evercore ISI says Model 3 'on track'
Evercore ISI analyst George Galliers said he is a bit more positive on Tesla following his trip to the company's Freemont facility, stating that Tesla "seems well on the way" to achieving steady production of 5,000 to 6,000 Model 3 units per week and that reaching 7,000 to 8,000 units per week seems "well within reach." Following the trip, he said the Model 3 looks to be "on track" and while he continues to forecast second half Model 3 production of 123,000 units, Galliers now believes his estimate could be 4%-7% too low. He maintains an In Line rating on Tesla shares with a $301 price target.

Tesla price target raised to $325 after 'taking company private' tweet at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr. raised his price target for Tesla to $325 after Elon Musk shocked investors last week when he tweeted that he was considering a take-private transaction for Tesla at $420 per share, and given the fact that it has been over a year since the analyst last adjusted his price target. Sacconaghi sees the odds of a successful take-private transaction at less than 50%, with downside to about $300 and upside to approximately $400.

Goldman involvement with Tesla 'doesn't mean anything,' says Vertical Research
Vertical Research analyst Gordon Johnson said Goldman Sachs (GS) being confirmed as a financial advisor to Tesla's (TSLA) proposed go-private offer "does not mean anything" beyond the "superficial optics" of the carmaker being able to "use Goldman's prestigious name to lend credence to the deal." Goldman is "in it for M&A fees" and agreeing to be an advisor is "not based on any inherent understanding of Tesla's value proposition, nor is it based on Goldman's confidence in Tesla's legal situation with respect to its significant issues surrounding disclosures and SEC involvement," according to Johnson, who maintains a Sell rating on Tesla shares.

Altaba price target lowered to $115 from $124 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson lowered his price target on Altaba (AABA) to $115 to account for the tax liability of its recent divestment of Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo Japan stakes along with its own stock repurchase. The analyst also keeps his Buy rating on Altaba, stating that the recent volatility in its stock is all macro related, which should be limited to currency transition since the consumption economy in China still has "very strong drivers".

JD.com has 'improving event path' and 'low valuation', says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson kept his Buy rating and $51 price target on JD.com (JD) ahead of its Q2 earnings this week, saying that while consensus expectations suggest concern with whether net margins can achieve the 0.9%, more bullish investors can be rewarded beyond this quarter. The analyst further notes that the loss of market share to Alibaba (BABA), along with China macro trade concerns, have weighed on the stock, but its "all-time low" valuation is compelling, and even a partial recovery in performance could yield a sizable move in the stock price.

Booking Holdings downgraded to Hold on slowing growth at Stifel
As previously reported, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Booking Holdings (BKNG) to Hold from Buy, citing the slowing growth at the company-formerly-known-as Priceline. Devitt lowered his core bookings growth expectations in 2018 and beyond following the company's Q2 earnings report and cut his price target on Booking shares to $2,150 from $2,332. He sees better large cap opportunities at company's with similar earnings multiples and better growth, such as Alibaba (BABA), Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB), Devitt added.

Groupon offers 'tremendous value' in potential sale, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte kept his Buy rating and $8 price target on Groupon following speculation by Recode over the weekend that the company is looking to sell itself. Forte recommends that investors purchase shares, stating that the market is underpricing Groupon as its "North American business has never been in better shape and its international operations are well positioned". In a bull case, the analyst contends that Groupon could be worth $12 per share if it can improve its growth rate or find a strategic buyer where a deal would value the two companies higher than the sum of their parts. Forte speculates about Priceline (PCLN), Alibaba (BABA), Google (GOOGL), and Facebook (FB) as potential acquirers for Groupon.

Facebook suit, Burma issues point to 'systemic problems,' says Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser noted that a lawsuit was filed on Wednesday by one of Facebook's small business advertisers that alleges, citing anonymous former employees, that "those who were responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Potential Reach at Facebook were indifferent to the actual numbers." He also noted that the United Nations has "accused Facebook of playing a determining role in stirring up hatred against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Rakhine State" of Burma. Both the lawsuit related to Ads Manager reach data and the recent reporting on how Facebook ignored concerns related to its role in the problems in Burma "further illustrate systemic problems with the company," contends Wieser, who keeps a $140 price target and Sell rating on Facebook shares.

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.

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.
