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. GOLDMAN CUTS SEAGATE TO SELL: Goldman Sachs analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Seagate Technology (STX) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $44 from $50, representing 20% downside from current levels. While Seagate has improved its product offerings in the last few years, hard disk drives remain a cyclical industry, and one "facing secular challenges in many parts of the market," Delaney said. He believes Seagate's fundamentals will peak in the second half of 2018 and decline in 2019. RBC CUTS FOX TO SECTOR PERFORM ON VALUATION: RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall downgraded 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to Sector Perform from Outperform, but raised his price target to $49 from $45. The analyst noted that the stock is now trading near its M&A price and that he does not see any competitive bids emerging. Cahall adds that while the company is "undervalued", he awaits the separation to re-evaluate his stance. MORGAN STANLEY DOWNGRADES SEMI INDUSTRY: Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said he has become less constructive on semiconductor stocks through the year and he now believes elevated inventory levels and stretched lead times leave "no margin for error." Given his view that any lead time adjustment or demand slowdown could drive a "meaningful correction," Moore has downgraded his semiconductor industry view to Cautious from In-Line. He favors connector companies, like Amphenol (APH) and TE Connectivity (TEL) over analog/MCU at this point in the cycle, due to lower risk around lead time issues, Moore said. He also has a "strong preference" for high margin and more defensive models, such as Analog Devices (ADI) over lower margin and commodity exposed ones, like Cypress Semiconductor (CY) and ON Semiconductor (ON), he said. Despite his more cautious view on the space, Moore kept Overweight ratings on Nvidia (NVDA), Xilinx (XLNX) and Ambarella (AMBA), citing his view that they should benefit from secular growth in the area of AI, data center, and autonomous. SOUTHERN COMPANY GETS MULTIPLE DOWNGRADES AFTER Q2 REPORT: Barclays analyst Eric Beaumont downgraded Southern Company (SO) to Equal Weight and lowered his price target for the shares to $48 from $51. Credit Suisse analyst Michael Weinstein downgraded Southern Company to Underperform from Neutral and lowered his price target on the shares to $43 from $46. Guggenheim analyst Shahriar Pourreza downgraded Southern Company to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target on the stock to $47 from $50. Evercore ISI analyst Greg Gordon downgraded Southern Company to Underperform from In Line and lowered his price target on Southern shares to $46 from $46.75.

Ambarella downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Adam Gonzalez downgraded Ambarella to Underperform and cut its price target to $35 from $42 to reflect slower earnings and sales growth near-term. The analyst said the slower-than expected transition away from legacy consumer markets is pressuring earnings as the company's Q2 report was inline but guided Q3 sales below consensus for the second straight time. Gonzalez is positive on Ambarella's expansion into computer vision but does not expect a material contribution for at least 2+ years.

Ambarella price target lowered to $45 from $56 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Kevin Cassidy lowered his price target on Ambarella shares to $45 from $56 after the company guided for continued weakness in all consumer camera categories, which leaves him more cautious on the core business into FY20. However, he keeps a Buy rating on the stock, citing his positive view on the longer term prospects of Ambarella's computer vision SoCs. Management stated that the CV family is progressing in line with previous expectations and they expect initial CV revenue in the first half of next year, noted Cassidy.

Morgan Stanley bullishness on Ambarella computer vision opportunity still intact
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said a large miss in Ambarella's consumer business, an auto program delay and trade tensions in surveillance will all likely test investor patience, but he remains bullish as his enthusiasm for the new computer vision opportunity has not waned. He thinks the company is hitting its milestones and still expects the company to be able to talk more specifically about autonomous driving customers later this year, Moore tells investors. While his view of the upside has not changed, the downside protection in the event that the company is less successful transitioning to computer vision has declined, added Moore, who keeps an Overweight rating on Ambarella shares but lowered his price target to $50 from $58.
