Amazon.com's AWS announces availability of T3 instances for EC2

Amazon Web Services announced the availability of T3 instances, the next generation of burstable general-purpose instances for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), providing up to 30% improved price performance than previous generation T2 instances. Designed for applications with variable CPU usage that experience occasional spikes in demand - such as microservices, low-latency interactive applications, small and medium databases, virtual desktops, development environments, code repositories, and business critical applications - T3 instances enable customers' applications to burst seamlessly to meet temporary traffic peaks and then scale back down to operate at typical traffic levels. T3 instances feature Intel(R) Xeon(R) Scalable processors and support up to 5 Gbps in peak network bandwidth. T2 instances launched four years ago and have become the most popular instances for a wide range of workloads due to their low cost and unlimited burst capabilities. T2 instances are unlike any other burstable instance available in the cloud today in that customers can sustain high CPU performance for any period of time, whenever and however long required, and avoid application degradation if the instance exceeds its available CPU credits. This behavior has to be activated by customers for T2 instances, and because it isn't the default behavior, customers sometimes didn't realize that this important performance benefit was available to them. Based on customer feedback, T3 instances have this valuable unlimited burst capability enabled by default, so customers need not take any special action to enjoy this benefit.

Report incorrectly characterized Amazon DVR as threat to Tivo, says B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Eric Wold said he believes that Bloomberg's article on Friday discussing the possibility that Amazon (AMZN) is at work on a device to record and store live TV incorrectly characterized this technology/product as a threat to Tivo (TIVO). He actually believes, conversely, that it creates an additional licensing opportunity for TiVo that could push it to revisit litigation against Amazon. Wold contends that it would be "virtually impossible" for Amazon to develop an offering as described by Bloomberg without infringing upon any of TiVo's other guide, search, discovery and/or video IP beyond the company's soon-to-expire "time warp" patent. Noting further that the report comments that the functionality of the proposed Amazon DVR would be "similar to offerings from TiVo and Dish Network Corp.'s Slingbox," Wold reminds investors that Dish Network (DISH) is a licensee of TiVo. He maintains a Buy rating on TiVo shares.

Best Buy valuation 'feels full,' says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Jonathan Matuszewski assumed coverage of Best Buy (BBY) with a Hold rating and $79 price target, telling investors in a research note that Total Tech Support and In Home Advisor will help defend share loss to Amazon (AMZN), but that he'd like to see more progress before becoming constructive. The analyst also notes that "valuation feels full."

Costco price target raised to $255 from $220 at Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Costco (COST) to $255 and kept his Buy rating, saying he has maintained a bullish view on the stock for nearly a decade and will continue to do so as long as "traffic remains strong, renewal rates remain near record levels and management treats its customers and employees well". The analyst also raises his FY19 EPS view to $7.85 from $7.75, estimating 7.5% sales growth, a very slight decline in gross margins, and a slight increase in operating margins. Graja is positive on Costco's ability to deliver "extreme value" in a "curated selection of items" where it can make a reasonable profit, adding that it will be difficult for Amazon (AMZN) or anyone else to match Costco on price and quality.

Premier price target raised to $48 from $40 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Mohan Naidu said Premier (PINC) reported "strong performance in all segments" in Q4, adding that the recovery in the Performance segment is a surprise "likely to appease investors." The quarterly performance and potential upside opportunities make him "excited" despite investor concern about the threat posed by Amazon (AMZN), said Naidu, who raised his price target on Premier shares to $48 and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
