Week in review: How Trump's policies moved stocks

Catch up on the top industries and stocks that were impacted, or were predicted to be impacted, by the comments, actions and policies of President Trump and his administration with this weekly recap compiled by The Fly: 1. GOOGLE SEARCH 'RIGGED': On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted that Google (GOOG; GOOGL) search results for "Trump News" are "RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD," calling it a "very serious situation" that "will be addressed!" Late in the day, the President doubled down on his comments and broadened his criticism, stating that not only Google but also Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR) "have to be careful." In response, Google said that its search "is not used to set a political agenda." "We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment," a company statement said. 2. 'FAKE NEWS MEDIA': In a series of tweets on Thursday, President Donald Trump said, "The hatred and extreme bias of me by @CNN has clouded their thinking and made them unable to function. But actually, as I have always said, this has been going on for a long time. Little Jeff Z has done a terrible job, his ratings suck, & AT&T should fire him to save credibility! What's going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks - with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse. When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly! I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn't matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People!" NBCUniversal is a subsidiary of Comcast (CMCSA) while AT&T (T) acquired CNN via its acquisition of Time Warner. 3. CHINA TARIFFS: President Donald Trump would like to move ahead with imposing tariffs on $200B in Chinese imports as soon as a public-comment period concludes next week, according to a report by Bloomberg on Thursday, citing six people familiar with the matter. The publication noted that while some of the sources cautioned that Trump has not made his final decision, it is possible the president could announce the tariffs next week. 4. NEW NAFTA: The week started off with the announcement of a new U.S.-Mexico trade pact. According to The Wall Street Journal, President Trump's new free trade pact with Mexico provides clarity in the auto industry after a drawn-out trade dispute, requiring 40%-45% of a vehicles content to be made in either the U.S. or Mexico and by workers making at least $16 an hour. Manufacturers that don't fit that criteria will pay a 2.5% tariff on vehicles moving across the border. On Tuesday, Reuters also reported that the proposed bilateral trade agreement contains a cap on Mexican-made autos entering U.S. markets and would allow the U.S. Trade Representative to impose a 25% tariff beyond 2.4M units of incoming sedans/SUVs, and auto parts. The report added that this restriction is part of a "previously unreported side agreement," though no details of the agreement have been "officially" released. Trade negotiations between the U.S and Canada were ongoing on Friday, the countries' self-imposed deadline to reach a replacement NAFTA deal. Publicly traded companies in the auto space include Daimler AG (DDAIF), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY). "Week in Review" is The Fly's weekly recap of its recurring series of "Trump Effect" exclusive stories.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,515 from $1,325 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak raised his price target on shares of Alphabet to $1,515 from $1,325 citing the continued strong fundamentals in its core Google business as well as the growing visibility into its Waymo business. Nowak believes the current valuation of Alphabet ascribes little value for Waymo, but he also thinks the launch of Waymo's ride-hailing service by year-end can be a catalyst to realize that value. He currently values Waymo at $45B, or about $60 per Alphabet share, but notes this is only 25% of the $175B potential value he ascribes to the business. Nowak, who raised his 2018 and 2019 adjusted EBITDA estimates by 2%, keeps an Overweight rating on Alphabet shares.

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.

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. BOFA CUTS ZILLOW TO NEUTRAL: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Nat Schindler downgraded Zillow (Z, ZG) to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $60 from $70 following the Q2 report and reduction in guidance. Schindler said the quarter indicated Zillow is taking longer than expected to ramp up the Homes business, Rentals revenue missed and the outlook was cut, and other revenue also missed, indicating the new construction opportunity is also taking longer to materialize. Zillow Class A shares are down about 17% in late morning trading. MORGAN STANLEY SAYS WAYMO COULD BE WORTH $175B: Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak increased his enterprise value estimate for Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Waymo unit from $75B for ride sharing only to $175B given his analyses for two other emerging business models, logistics and licensing. He believes Waymo remains on track to launch an autonomous ride hailing service in Phoenix this year and believes this business could be worth about $80B over the long-term. Given his view of Waymo being a key part of Alphabet's long-term value, Nowak raised his sum of the parts valuation to $1,550 from $1,400. He has an Overweight rating and $1,325 price target on Alphabet shares. GOLDMAN RAISES NVIDIA TARGET AHEAD OF EARNINGS: Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari raised his price target for Nvidia (NVDA) to $324 from $310 ahead of quarterly results. Unlike the past 10 quarters where the company handily beat Street estimates and raised guidance, the analyst expects a "noisy" quarter with the focal points being the upcoming product transition in Gaming, the current product transition in Datacenter, weakness in cryptocurrency mining, and potential disruption from the virus attack at TSMC (TSM). That said, Hari noted that his long-term bull thesis on Nvidia remains intact and reiterated a Buy rating on the shares. ARGUS CUTS CBS TO HOLD: Argus analyst Joseph Bonner downgraded CBS (CBS) to Hold from Buy, noting significant downside risks for the company from both the sexual harassment allegations against CEO Moonves and the board's attempts to prevent the Viacom (VIA, VIAB) merger. Bonner noted that if the Moonves allegations are proven true, he would be immediately dismissed, which could end the board's bid to remain independent and thereby inflict damage on the shareholders.

Enterprise value of Alphabet's Waymo raised to $175B at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak increased his enterprise value estimate for Alphabet's Waymo unit from $75B for ride sharing only to $175B given his analyses for two other emerging business models, namely logistics and licensing. He believes Waymo remains on track to launch an autonomous ride hailing service in Phoenix this year and believes this business could be worth about $80B over the long-term. Partnerships with Walmart (WMT), DDR (DDR) and Peterbilt speak to Waymo's logistics focus, said Nowak, who sees the company potentially having a $90B logistics business. Additionally, he sees a roughly $7B licensing opportunity, pointing to the company's FCA (FCAU) relationship as a model of how companies could pay a license fee to Waymo for its autonomous technology. Given his view of Waymo being a key part of Alphabet's long-term value, Nowak raised his sum of the parts valuation to $1,550 from $1,400. He has an Overweight rating and $1,325 price target on Alphabet shares.

Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. MORGAN STANLEY RAISES ALPHABET, AMAZON TARGETS: Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak raised his price target on shares of Alphabet (GOOGL) to $1,515 from $1,325 citing the continued strong fundamentals in its core Google business as well as the growing visibility into its Waymo business. Nowak, who raised his 2018 and 2019 adjusted EBITDA estimates by 2%, kept an Overweight rating on Alphabet shares. Additionally, Nowak expressed increasing confidence that Amazon's (AMZN) rapidly growing, high margin revenue streams will drive higher profitability and continue to push up consensus estimates. He has not made any changes to his estimates, but raised his price target on Amazon shares to $2,500 from $1,850 to reflect its improving business mix and his belief that the new target more accurately represents the company's long-term potential earnings power. He maintained an Overweight rating on Amazon shares. FERRARI UPGRADED TO BUY: HSBC analyst Giulio Pescatore upgraded Ferrari (RACE) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to EUR 133 from EUR 114. The recent selloff on the CEO's comments regarding Sergio Marchionne's 2022 targets has provided an attractive entry point, Pescatore said. The analyst believes Ferrari's pipeline remains strong. ROYAL CARIBBEAN UPGRADED TO BUY: Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Woronka upgraded Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCL) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $146 from $135. The analyst finds the stock's valuation as "undemanding" at current share levels. Further, he sees the potential for more inflows into cruise stocks for the balance of 2018 as comps get tougher across sectors like lodging, retail, and Macau, but "relatively easier" for Royal Caribbean. JEFFERIES RAISES TARGET ON PAYPAL: Jefferies analyst John Hecht raised his price target for PayPal (PYPL) to $110 from $100 saying the company's growth story is more than just Venmo. While Venmo is an important growth driver, PayPal's core person-to-person business and mobile trends, which have been "impressive," should be followed more closely alongside the Venmo success, Hecht said. The analyst's updated analysis supports his belief that the eBay (EBAY) migration should be "very manageable" for PayPal. Further, his analysis of app downloads shows PayPal platforms "remain competitive." Hecht reiterated a Buy rating on the shares.

Sanderson states that he remains impressed with Alphabet's "consistent growth at increasingly large revenue levels" and believes that the company's traffic acquisition costs could slow after a drag on earnings over a period of about 3 years, boosting its margins. The analyst adds that while Waymo has "negligible" near-term implications, its long-term potential is "tremendous".

Piper survey shows most Facebook, Instagram users unfazed by recent issues
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his firm's survey of 1,300 Facebook and Instagram users leaves him confident that "most are unfazed by the negative news flow." Facebook has had a rough year from a public relations perspective, with Cambridge Analytica, concern around "fake news" and privacy issues, Olson tells investors in a research note. However, the survey, which focused on usage of the services this year versus last year, found that the majority, or two-thirds, are using Facebook and Instagram the same or more versus last year, Olson writes. He believes the 21% pullback in Facebook shares since the July 25 close more than reflects issues surrounding Europe's new privacy laws as well as the rising cost of content security and screening. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Facebook shares with a $200 price target. The social media giant closed yesterday up 12c to $172.62.

The analyst also believes that Twitter's Daily Active User count is "at least" as monetizable as that of Facebook (FB) and possibly more so over time, even though the company is currently spending its capital on network health. Sanderson adds that he still believes in the "potential for a mass-market Twitter one day", with the continued development of AI technology serving as a possible user experience break-through opportunity.

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. SIDOTI UPGRADES SYSTEMAX TO BUY: Sidoti analyst Anthony Lebiedzinski upgraded Systemax (SYX) to Buy from Neutral. The analyst said the recent selloff in shares is overdone and maintained a $45 price target. Systemax shares are up 10.2% in morning trading. PIPER CUTS STARBUCKS TO NEUTRAL: Piper Jaffray analyst Nicole Miller Regan downgraded Starbucks (SBUX) last night to Neutral from Overweight and lowered her price target for the shares to $53 from $60. The motivation for the downgrade was another month of U.S. checks that suggested a lack of comp performance, Miller Regan said. The analyst believes shares of Starbucks will be "range bound at best" until U.S. trends improve. She sees issues around "inconsistent results, credibility of guidance, and management transitions." Miller Regan thinks the stock has "modest downside risk." MKM BOOSTS NETFLIX TARGET TO $395: MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) to $395 from $390 and kept a Buy rating on the shares after updating his estimates. The analyst said his "previous caution" on the shares is "now reversed" following the recent stock price correction. His subscriber ramp expectations are "somewhat lower" in the near-to-medium term but remain unchanged in the long-term. Netflix will approach full penetration of the U.S. over time, growing to 90M subscribers by 2025, Sanderson said. He continues to see over $40 per share in earnings power at 90M U.S. and 300M international subscribers, which he projected in the 2025 timeframe. Expectations for Netflix became "somewhat elevated, but have been appropriately moderated," Sanderson contended. He called the stock a "must-own for growth managers." BAIRD SAYS STAR WARS LICENSE ADDS VISIBILITY FOR ZYNGA: Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes the Star Wars license announced adds some visibility to Zynga's (ZNGA) out-year growth targets. The new Disney (DIS) license is a positive development for Zynga for the longer-term given the popularity of the Star Wars franchise, Sebastian said. That said, he does not expect a material contribution from new titles until 2020. As such, Sebastian kept a Neutral rating on Zynga shares. Znga shares are up 7.6% in late morning trading. PIPER SAYS FACEBOOK USERS 'UNFAZED' BY ISSUES: Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson said his firm's survey of 1,300 Facebook (FB) and Instagram users leaves him confident that "most are unfazed by the negative news flow." The analyst kept an Overweight rating on Facebook shares with a $200 price target.

After selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset, Kelley tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Twitter's investments to clean up the platform will prove a longer term positive and lead to a more engaged user base. Further, he expects improving ad formats will drive advertiser retention and possibly growth over time.

JEFFERIES UPS RATING, TARGET FOR CHIPOTLE: Jefferies analyst Andy Barish upgraded Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $550 from $400. Barish believes Chipotle is one of the better positioned companies to benefit from the ongoing shift to digital/off-premise. The company's operations are now poised to again handle increased volume and throughput, the analyst contended. Further, he believes new management's plans are "credible" and should help drive results in 2019 and beyond. The analyst called the stock a top mid-cap pick. NOMURA UPGRADES TWITTER TO NEUTRAL: Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Reduce with an unchanged price target of $31. After selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset, Kelley told investors. The analyst believes Twitter's investments to clean up the platform will prove a longer term positive and lead to a more engaged user base. BARCLAYS PREFERS DEERE TO CATERPILLAR: Barclays analyst Adam Seiden downgraded Caterpillar (CAT) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $155 from $170. The company's largest end-markets are no longer at trough, and the analyst believes Caterpillar's second half of 2018 price initiatives, directed towards offsetting supply chain and materials cost increases, will limit its ability to expand margins. The analyst prefers shares of Deere (DE) and CNH Industrial (CNH), which he says are at similar valuations but are earlier in their market cycles. CITI SAYS SELL WISDOMTREE: Citi analyst William Katz placed a low probability on Franklin Resources (BEN) acquiring WisdomTree (WETF), and downgraded WisdomTree to Sell, lowering his price target for the shares to $7 from $10. The analyst downgraded the shares to Neutral on July 13. Katz believes WisdomTree's price-to-earnings multiple can further contract amid mixed flow dynamics and flat earnings growth prospects out to 2020. JPMORGAN SAYS GOPRO MAY SEE SHORT SQUEEZE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster believes "muted" expectations and elevated short-interest could position GoPro (GPRO) shares for a "short squeeze" rally after the company's Q2 results. The analyst expects the company to post an in-line quarter. GoPro must entice existing users to upgrade to a new flagship camera expected to be released in early Q4, and convert new users for a product category that "feels a bit long in the tooth now," Coster said. He lowered his price target for GoPro shares to $7 from $8 and kept a Neutral rating on GoPro.

While a "scary headline," the reality is this does not matter in terms of TiVo's court case with Comcast (CMCSA), since this patent was dropped from the case, said Auty, who keeps an Overweight rating on TiVo shares.

VF CORP DOUBLE UPGRADE: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Robert Ohmes upgraded VF Corp (VFC) to Buy from Underperform and raised his price objective to $96 from $65 ahead of the company's earnings report on July 20, telling investors in a research note that he believes Vans will be a "go-to-brand" for the back-to-school selling season. He said his channel checks indicate accelerating momentum in Vans, especially classic styles, and that the $50-$60 price point is attractive given consumers' shift to value. RAYMOND JAMES DOWNGRADES AT&T: Raymond James downgraded AT&T (T) to Market Perform from Outperform. Analyst Frank Louthan said he views the Department of Justice appeal of the Time Warner case as a negative and said it is a "frustrating delay." Louthan expects the suit to be a "significant overhang" for an extended period of time, which will limit share appreciation, but remains confident AT&T will prevail. AT&T is lower by 2% in late morning trading. STIFEL STARTS GALMED WITH A BUY: Stifel analyst Adam Walsh initiated Galmed (GLMD) with a Buy rating and $35 price target, calling it a "legitimate late-stage NASH play" after Aramchol recently proved itself in a Phase 2 trial as a clearly active and "very safe" compound for treating NASH. Galmed is trading higher by over 17% in late morning trading. MORGAN STANLEY HIKES WWE TARGET TO $100: Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said that WWE (WWE), by securing rights fees in its new five-year agreements with NBC (CMCSA, CMCSK) and Fox (FOX, FOXA) that are 3.6 times higher than its prior five-year broadcast agreement with NBC, has gained a "massive increase" in earnings power and "extremely high" visibility into the associated revenue. Given the recently announced deals, he raised his price target on WWE shares to $100 from $58 and kept an Overweight rating on the stock. WILLIAM BLAIR CALLS KEMPER PULLBACK 'BUYING OPPORTUNITY': William Blair analyst Adam Klauber said he views shares of Kemper (KMPR) as "even more attractive" after the recent pullback, which he attributes to selling pressures from Infinity Property shareholders receiving Kemper stock. Klauber said Kemper "continues to be our top conviction idea," and kept an Outpeform rating on the name. Kemper is higher by 4.8% in late morning trading.

Bernstein 'not so sure' Comcast will give up on Fox assets
Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger said that it appears that the market is starting to believe Comcast (CMCSA) will give up on its bid to buy assets from 21st Century Fox (FOXA) and focus on Sky (SKYAY), but he said he is "not so sure" that is the case after only one counter from Disney (DIS). He does not believe Comcast would put forth a $35 bid unless it was prepared to bid up to near $45 per share, Juenger tells investors. If Comcast ups its bid, it either wins Fox at a high price or Disney is forced to pay more, which both seem better than giving up to him, Juenger stated. In any case, the "winner" will be left with increased leverage on a cyclical business late in the cycle at a time when it needs to invest significantly to build its direct-to-consumer business, added Juenger.

The analyst tells investors in a research note that a higher bid assessment could be triggered by the U.K. Takeover Panel exercising its authority to mandate a higher takeout bid if the price paid by Comcast or Disney (DIS) to buy the 21st Century Fox assets that are in play implies a higher bid.

GameStop may see Q2 upside on 'robust' Best Buy console sales, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Hold rating and $14 price target on GameStop (GME) ahead of its Q2 earnings next week, saying that "robust" sales of video game consoles and accessories at Best Buy (BBY) in the quarter is a "positive harbinger" for its results. The analyst expects investors to focus on GameStop's comps, title release slate for the second half of 2018, any update on its CEO search, and negotiations with financial sponsors and AT&T (T). Chukumba further states that while its 4.6-times current earnings multiple represents a "substantial discount to historical average levels", the valuation is appropriate given the "secular declines" in the company's core business.

Wells Fargo sees AT&T shares as range bound, downgrades to Market Perform
Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche downgraded AT&T to Market Perform from Outperform and lowered her price target for the shares to $35 from $40. The analyst says that while she agrees with the longer term story of AT&T's strategic perspective, the stock will be range bound over the near-to-medium term. Fritzsche expects continued pressure on the company's entertainment margins and points out that enterprise stability is not yet seen. Further, AT&T has "many new balls to juggle (and invest in)" with Time Warner's assets, Fritzsche tells investors in a research note. She also believes achieving delevering targets "might push other priorities down the list." She thinks the company has to get a few full quarters under its belt with Time Warner integration before its longer term strategy gains more credibility with investors.

The analyst believes the tolling agreement does not change much of what is going on. Nonetheless, Hecht notes that the companies also acknowledged they are working to resolve the matter tied to the captive finance, with the agreement indicating that a resolution on this matter may come in months rather than quarters.

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. BOFA CUTS YUM CHINA TO UNDERPERFORM: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Chen Luo downgraded Yum China (YUMC) to Underperform from Neutral and cut its price target to $34 from $44.30. Luo said he expects Yum China to continue to underperform given a likely peak in KFC trends amid China's weakening macro environment, a likely prolonged turnaround at Pizza Hut combined with heavy costs, a slowdown in Chinese consumer consumption, and RMB depreciation. Yum China is down 4.8% in late morning trading. CREDIT SUISSE CUTS FIVE BELOW TO NEUTRAL: Credit Suisse analyst Judah Frommer downgraded Five Below (FIVE) to Neutral from Outperform, telling investors that he is moving to the sidelines as he sees risk/reward balanced at current levels given the stock's material outperformance and back-half comp acceleration that he believes is priced into shares. Frommer keeps his $110 price target and says Five Below remains one of the most differentiated concepts in retail. Five Below is down 4.4% in late morning trading. BAIRD MORE CAUTIOUS ON DRUG SUPPLY CHAIN: Baird analyst Eric Coldwell downgraded Express Scripts (ESRX), AmerisourceBergen (ABC), and McKesson (MCK), all to Neutral from Outperform, citing the heavy political attack in recent weeks against pharmacy benefit managers and members of the drug supply chain. Among them, he said AmerisourceBergen remains his preferred name, but he cannot justify putting new money to work in these names in the current environment. SUNTRUST STARTS VIKING WITH A BUY: SunTrust analyst Edward Nash initiated Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) with a Buy rating and a price target of $14, saying its VK2809 drug for lipid disorders "has the potential to become a promising treatment by addressing multiple metabolic issues" associated with the non-alcoholic steatohepatitis disease, or NASH. Viking is up 8.3% in late morning trading. JPMORGAN SAYS BUY GM, SELL TESLA INTO EARNINGS: JPMorgan analyst Ryan Brinkman forecast lower than consensus Q2 earnings for Ford (F) and higher than consensus earnings for General Motors (GM). The analyst is also concerned about the potential for a "large loss and accompanying large cash outflow" at Tesla (TSLA) in Q2 to "make the bridge" to GAAP profitability and positive cash generation in the second half of the year. Brinkman maintained Overweight ratings on GM and Ford, with a preference for GM shares. He also kept his cautious Underweight rating on Tesla shares, seeing 44% downside to his $180 December 2018 price target.

General Motors outperforming Ford in China, says Piper Jaffray
While both would suffer in a trade war, it is clear that General Motors (GM) is outperforming Ford (F) in China, Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter tells investors in a research note. The analyst views GM's China business as stable, with a growing presence in luxury. He thinks Cadillac represented 16.7% of GM's Q2 revenue in China, versus 13.6% in 2017, which should boost margins. Until its "new product blitz gains momentum, Ford's China business will likely continue bleeding," Potter contends. He notes the company's Ford's retail sales in China declined by 38% year-over-year in June. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on GM and a Neutral rating on Ford.

Ford risks high, but so is potential reward, says Morgan Stanley

While acknowledging the wide range of potential outcomes, Jonas has an estimate for how Ford could recognize its planned $11B in restructuring charges over a 3-5 year period to achieve annual cost reductions of about $4B, giving it a payback period of just under 3 years that would "usually [be] a very good use of capital" by automotive standards, he tells investors. Jonas maintains an Overweight rating on Ford with a $15 price target, contending that the "risks are high, but so is the potential reward."

UBS teardown finds 'numerous' quality issues with Tesla's Model 3
The UBS Evidence Lab tore down the new Tesla (TSLA) Model 3, the 2014 BMW (BMWYY) i3, and 2017 Chevy Bolt from General Motors (GM), UBS analysts led by Colin Langan tell investors in a research note. While Tesla won the first test focused on powertrain and the second test focused on electronics, it came in last on the third test, which focused on fit and finish. Teardown experts noted "numerous" Model 3 quality issues including inconsistent gaps and flushness throughout the car, missing bolts, loose tolerances, and uneven and misaligned spot welds, UBS writes in a research note partially titled "The Revolution is Over." The Model 3 car scored "below average" on the firm's fit and finish quality audit. The results confirm media reports of quality issues and are disappointing for a $49,000 car, UBS writes to investors. The winner of the third test was the Chevy Bolt, with the BMW i3 close behind. UBS believes the Bolt offers good value with a price that's over $10,000 lower than the BMW i3.

Morgan Stanley says Softbank stake in Cruise significant 'far beyond' just GM
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas said Softbank's (SFTBF) recently announced investment in GM Cruise "carries significance far beyond" General Motors (GM), arguing that the increasingly conspicuous involvement of "outside validators" such as large-cap tech firms and prominent investors can accelerate perception change in the capital markets about "Auto 2.0." He envisions the possible formation of two different companies currently held under one automaker's roof, which he dubs an Auto 2.0 "Yieldco" and an Auto 2.0 "Growthco." Converting car owners into monthly subscribers could open up significant revenue, profit, and value opportunities for traditional automakers, argues Jonas in a note to investors. Other automaking "OEMs" include Ford (F), Daimler (DDAIF), Toyota (TM), Honda (HMC), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) and BMW Group (BAMXY).

Morgan Stanley compares automakers to Facebook, Apple in 'Auto 2.0' model
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas noted that auto companies' valuations have compressed to extremely low levels, but he believes that a move from a vehicle ownership model to a transportation subscriber model could expand the revenue opportunities for the potential "tollkeepers" for the monetization of content and data by "nearly an order of magnitude." Looking at U.S. technology leaders Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL), which are both valued on their installed base/subscriber models, can "offer valuable clues" regarding the opportunity for General Motors (GM) and other auto OEMs, said Jonas. Viewing the OEMs though the lens of a subscription model, which should be less cyclical and potentially less capital intensive over time than the current auto model, is relevant to analyzing auto stocks, according to Jonas, who adds that it is still too early to call a winner or loser in "Auto 2.0." Other publicly traded legacy automakers include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM), Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Daimler (DDAIF).

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).
