Microsoft (MSFT) Teams is now used by 329,000 organizations, up from 200,000 in March and over double the 125,000 organizations it had in September 2017, VentureBeat reports, citing an announcement the company made at Microsoft Ignite. Teams, which is Microsoft's fastest-growing business app ever, is an Office 365 chat-based collaboration tool that competes with Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) Hangouts Chat, Facebook's (FB) Workplace and Slack.

Negative
Nutanix downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna
As previously reported, Susquehanna analyst Mehdi Hosseini downgraded Nutanix to Negative from Neutral and reduced his price target on shares to $33 from $55. The analyst believes Nutanix's OEM relationships are likely to become "less impactful over time," and also cited increasing competition as a headwind. Hosseini specifically said not to count out Microsoft (MSFT), noted that VMware (VMW) continues to add new features for vSAN while tightening integration with AWS, and expects an IPO from Dell in the coming months.

Microsoft demand appears robust ahead of Ignite user event, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin reiterates an Overweight rating and $123 price target on Microsoft shares on a multi-year model transformation driven by fast-growing cloud and Internet segments that he estimates could top $70B in revenue by CY20 versus $18.5B in CY16. The analyst adds that demand appears robust based on proprietary Key First Look Data ahead of Microsoft's annual Ignite user event. Bracelin expects enterprise cloud assets including Azure, Dynamics 365, and LinkedIn to headline the event.

Big winner in Adobe deal for Marketo is Vista Equity, says JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Patrick Walravens believes the big winner in Adobe's (ADBE) agreement to acquire Marketo is Vista Equity Partners, which bought the B2B marketing cloud company in 2016 for $1.8B, suggesting nearly a 7x return on the equity investment in 2.5 years. He also suspects that Microsoft (MSFT), SAP (SAP) and Google (GOOGL) looked at Marketo, which may have driven the premium valuation that Walravens says Adobe agreed to pay. He maintains a Market Perform rating on Adobe shares following the deal announcement and leaves his estimates unchanged.

Fears of Google competition for Nutanix look overblown, says William Blair
Shares of Nutanix (NTNX) fell yesterday after The Information reported that Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is working on a potential hyperconverged infrastructure product that could conceptually compete with Nutanix, William Blair analyst Jason Ader tells investors in a research note titled "Fears of Google Entering HCI Space Look Overblown to Us". This is likely Google's response to what Microsoft (MSFT) has built with Azure Stack, which is Microsoft's HCI product that connects directly into its Azure public cloud service, Ader contends. He believes that if Google turn this into an actual packaged HCI product sold to a broad range of customers, it could create longer-term risk for Nutanix. However, thinks investors should consider that this appears to be another validation of the staying power of the on-premises market, which he says bodes well for Nutanix. Further, he points out that if Google were to decide to enter the HCI market more broadly, it would have a long way to go to establish itself in the enterprise against entrenched players like Nutanix and VMware (VMW). Google has not had great success selling into the enterprise historically and has little experience selling enterprise infrastructure appliances, Ader writes. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Nutanix.

Square price target raised to $125 from $86 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Square (SQ) to $125 from $86 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The stock closed yesterday up 75c to $86.04. The analyst's analysis of Square's fundamentals indicates "buoyant" gross payment volume, revenue and marketing efficacy trends. The company's "fully cohesive solutions and rapid rate of innovation" suggest that it is en route to disrupt the global payments ecosystem, Dolev tells investors in a research note titled "Improving Momentum Means $125 Is Within Reach." He believes this is similar to the FANG stocks, or Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL), that have "disrupted traditional markets with massive" global total addressable markets. Further, Dolev believes shares of Square are not too expensive when taking into account its "stellar" 45% expected three-year annual revenue growth, which he thinks "makes it screen more attractively than many payment peers and FANG stocks."

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.

JPMorgan cuts estimates for Facebook, drops price target to $195
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. The analyst says Facebook remains the most controversial company in his Internet coverage universe. The company is in transition as it pushes Stories more prominently on the core platform and rolls out stronger privacy tools for users. Even with Facebook suggesting it could reach mid-30%'s operating margins in a few or several years, investments in 2019 could be larger than anticipated in consensus estimates, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. The analyst also cut his price target for the shares to $195 from $205. However, he keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. Anmuth's top overall Internet picks are Amazon.com (AMZN), Twitter (TWTR) and Yelp (YELP.)

Piper says Amazon, Facebook, Alphabet attractive despite regulatory pressure
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson believes shares of Amazon.com (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) remain attractive despite increased regulatory pressure in the near-term. While current regulatory challenges present "multiple issues over the next few months," the long-term outlook remains favorable for all three companies, Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Facebook may be becoming less exposed from a regulatory perspective going forward given that the company "has now done extensive work to bring its platform in line with recent privacy regulations and because it is now giving the deserved attention to privacy." Between the three companies, Alphabet may face the most regulatory headwind given its open infrastructure marketing platform exposure on privacy and targeting, susceptibility to copyright changes through YouTube, and its dominant position in search amenable to antitrust issues, the analyst contends. However, he believes Google, YouTube, Android, and Gmail together "create a once-in-a-generation asset with continued strong revenue growth potential, high margins, and secular tailwinds." For Amazon, Olson sees the biggest worries as antitrust and Post Office changes. However, he thinks antitrust law precedent will be upheld and points out the company continues to build its own last-mile delivery to lessen its dependency on the United States Postal Service.
