Morgan Stanley says Q1 'bar' set by investors for Nike 'very achievable'

Morgan Stanley analyst Lauren Cassel said her talks with investors leading up to Nike's Q1 report lead her to believe the "bar" has been set for a 1-3c EPS beat, 4-5% constant currency revenue growth in North America, 15-20% global direct-to-consumer growth, and a reiteration of its high-single digit full-year sales growth view. These expectation feels "very achievable," Cassel said, noting that her U.S. channel checks suggest strong sell-throughs, a positive average selling price mix shift to higher priced products and clean inventory in the channel. She reiterates her Overweight rating and $88 price target on Nike shares.

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. JPMORGAN CUTS ESTIMATES, PRICE TARGET ON FACEBOOK: JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth lowered his 2019 and 2020 earnings estimates for Facebook (FB) by 5%-6% on the company's bigger investment increases over the next couple years, which he does not believe are fully captured in consensus estimates. Even with Facebook suggesting it could reach mid-30% operating margins in a few or several years, investments in 2019 could be larger than anticipated in consensus estimates, Anmuth said. The analyst also cut his price target for the shares to $195 from $205. However, he kept an Overweight rating on Facebook. PIVOTAL CUTS DISCOVERY TO SELL: Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Discovery (DISCA) to Sell with an unchanged price target of $26. Despite "tepid" earnings and "underwhelming" longer-term trends, the stock is up 20% over the past month, Wieser noted. While Discovery's agreements with Hulu and Sling are positive, they do not meaningfully alter the company's fundamentals, the analyst added. His price target implies 19% downside from current share levels. MIZUHO BOOSTS AMD PRICE TARGET: Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh raised his price target for AMD (AMD) to $36 from $20 after meeting PC supply chain companies in Asia. AMD's expected server EPYC shipment spike in Q4 will be key, as Intel (INTC) continues to lack a CEO and a competitive technology response to AMD's 12nm Ryzen and 7nm Vega launch, Rakesh said. The analyst, who admits there could be "near-term bumps," kept a Buy rating on shares of AMD. CANACCORD SAYS KAPERNICK AD HAS 'OVERWHELMING' SUPPORT: Canaccord analyst Camilo Lyon conducted a proprietary survey to assess the impact of Nike's (NKE) "Just Do It" ad featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kapernick. The findings suggest the impact was overall positive and he expects the company to confirm that when it reports Q1 results next week. He believes the ad has had the intended effect of positively skewing the company's brand perception and likely provided a bump in sales. Lyon reiterated his Buy rating and $95 price target on Nike shares. PIPER, WILLIAM BLAIR DEFEND NUTANIX: Nutanix (NTNX) shares dropped 11.5% Monday due to an article from The Information citing a potential competitive hyperconverged infrastructure offering from Google (GOOG, GOOGL), but Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski views the selling pressure as "excessive" and reiterates an Overweight rating on Nutanix with a $66 price target. William Blair analyst Jason Ader called the fear of competition from Google "overblown" and reiterated an Outperform rating on Nutanix.

Nike positioned for 'solid' Q1, says Needham
Needham analyst Rick Patel is keeping his Hold rating on Nike ahead of its Q1 earnings next week based on its "premium valuation", even though he expects the company to post "solid results". The analyst cites his proprietary domestic checks suggesting "sequential improvement in promos and average selling prices". Patel also points to a favorable Q2 read-through from other athletic apparel names in the quarter, along with the "lean" inventory of Nike's wholesale customers. The analyst further anticipates outperformance in Nike's international segment based on its "strong brand and product momentum".

Piper remains positive on Nike shares ahead of Q1 results
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy remains positive on shares of Nike ahead of the company's fiscal Q1 results on September 25. The analyst sees upside to her Q1 sales and gross margin estimates, driven by "solid" domestic demand, strength in China and "on-going traction" in Europe. While currencies have been more volatile, upside on a constant currency basis and a strengthening fundamental backdrop should still support earnings and the stock moving higher over the near- to medium-term, Murphy tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. Further, the analyst's checks indicate Nike outperformed peer promotional levels and inventory management during back-to-school. She keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $93 price target.
