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 STARTS APPLE AT OVERWEIGHT: JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee initiated coverage of Apple (AAPL) with an Overweight rating and $272 price target. While Apple's leadership position in the premium smartphone market is well understood by investors, its "faster-than-expected" transformation to a services business, "stronger-than-expected" price increases in the core iPhone business and earnings growth from stock buybacks can drive "considerable upside" to current share levels, Chatterjee said. The analyst also believes Apple's "robust" high-single-digit growth in the installed base, which he says is a key contributor to services revenue growth, has been underappreciated by investors. LOOP CUTS APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS TO SELL: Loop Capital analyst James Kisner downgraded Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) to Sell from Hold and cut his price target for the shares to $20 from $45. The downgrade follows the analyst's industry checks which suggest the company is having product quality issues in 100G CWDM4 transceivers and that the pricing environment for 100G data center optics "remains very tough." It's possible that Applied Optoelectronics can get around the problem by procuring lasers externally, but this would obviously be negative for gross margin, the analyst said. NORTHLAND CUTS AMD TO MARKET PERFORM: Northland analyst Gus Richard said that while his thesis that AMD (AMD) will challenge Intel (INTC) has not changed, valuation has, prompting him to downgrade AMD shares to Market Perform from Outperform. He still sees AMD shares appreciating through year end, but Richard believes the stock price now reflects "irrational expectations." While downgrading his rating, Richard raised his price target on AMD shares to $30 from $26. STIFEL BOOSTS AMAZON PRICE TARGET TO STREET HIGH: Stifel analyst Scott Devitt increased his price target on Amazon (AMZN) shares to $2,525 from $2,020 primarily due to higher long-term revenue and margin expectations, driven by stronger than previously expected growth from Amazon's retail, cloud, and advertising businesses. He raised his 2019 advertising and other revenue forecast to $15.0B from $13.5B and hiked his 2020 view for the business to $20.2B from $17.6B. He increased his 2019 AWS revenue forecast to $36.6B from $35.4B and increased his 2020 view for AWS to $50.1B from $47.8B. Devitt also raised his 2019 and 2020 online stores revenue forecasts to $143.1B and $164.6, respectively, from $141.5B and $161.3B. He maintains a Buy rating on Amazon shares. CITI SAYS BED BATH & BEYOND TURNAROUND MAY BE TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE: Citi analyst Kate McShane lowered her price target for Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) to $13 from $16 and reiterated a Sell rating on the shares following the company's Q2 results. Management's turnaround plan "might be too little too late," McShane said in a post-earnings research note. In the near term, it's difficult to envision the company's initiatives "moving the needle in a meaningful way," McShane wrote. And over the long term, she finds it unclear which of the projects management will stick with.

Piper views Amazon's '4-star' store concept as another positive step
After visiting Amazon.com's new "4-star" store concept in lower Manhattan, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says the company's physical presence is "another positive step toward a hybrid online-offline world that lets Amazon service online customers at breakeven cost and sell a few prime subscriptions along the way." The recent story published by Bloomberg that Amazon hopes to open up to 3,000 physical locations by 2021 is plausible, Olson tells investors in a research note. He expects Amazon to eventually find a formula that works, but that its core economics will likely remain online. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $2,100 price target.

Morgan Stanley survey shows 26% of U.S. consumers now own Amazon credit card
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak noted that the firm's latest Alphawise survey data indicates that 26% of U.S. consumers now own an Amazon credit card, which is up from 18% in the third quarter of last year. He is bullish on this strategy and said credit could be only the beginning, noting that The Wall Street Journal has previously reported that Amazon seems interested in offering a debit card with rewards. Nowak, who sees the potential for an Amazon debit reward card to grow its Prime subscriber base in the under $50k per year bracket, has an Overweight rating on Amazon with a $2,500 price target.

Amazon represents ongoing threat to mattress industry, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Bradley Thomas says that he came across several mattress models launched under the AmazonBasics brand on Amazon. While not a surprise, the analyst believes the launch warrants monitoring. Initially, Thomas thinks this line will likely take share from other lower-price online brands, rather than having an effect on the middle or upper price points. Nonetheless, the analyst believes Amazon represents an ongoing threat to most of the traditional side of the industry.
