Apple, Amazon deny report on Chinese hardware attack, Bloomberg reports

Apple (AAPL) and Amazon (AMZN) denied a Bloomberg report on Thursday that their systems contained malicious computer chips inserted by Chinese intelligence, statements from the tech companies released separately by Bloomberg showed. Bloomberg cited 17 unnamed intelligence and company sources as saying that Chinese spies had placed computer chips inside equipment used by around 30 companies, as well as multiple U.S. government agencies, which would give Beijing secret access to internal networks.

ITC ruling Friday reinforces Qualcomm's momentum, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah believes Friday's International Trade Commission ruling reinforces Qualcomm's (QCOM) momentum in the Apple (AAPL) litigation and increases the likelihood the dispute will be settled before the end of the year. The analyst says he's been recommending Qualcomm shares on the belief that the Apple dispute would be resolved by the end of the year and Qualcomm stands to "benefit greatly" from a resolution. Shah keeps a Buy rating on the shares with an $80 price target.

Piper calls iPhone ASP estimate conservative after iPhone user survey
After surveying over 700 domestic iPhone owners to ask which iPhone they would buy if they were to upgrade this year, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson believes the consensus average selling price estimate may be conservative. Of those surveyed, 39% indicated they would buy one of the two "flagship" devices, the iPhone Xs or Xs Max, while the remaining 61% would buy some combination of iPhone Xr, 8 or 7, Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst now expects a fiscal 2019 average selling price of $770, above his previous estimate of $758. Further, Olson believes more choices for next gen form factor iPhones will drive unit upside relative to consensus. For fiscal 2019 he models 223M units versus the consensus at 218M. The analyst raised his estimates for Apple and continues to recommend owning the shares with an Overweight rating and $250 price target.

Apple price target raised to $215 from $210 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal raised his price target for Apple to $215 while keeping a Neutral rating on the shares. Falling shipment times for the XS models lifts visibility into the trajectory of two of the three new phones, Kvaal tells investors in a research note. Further, longer shipment times for the Max than the XS imply a "material" average selling price boost, the analyst contends. He upped his fiscal 2019 earnings per share estimate to $14.35 from $14.16.

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.

Trade Desk pullback due to misplaced concerns about Amazon, says Stifel
Stifel analyst John Egbert raised his mid- and long-term estimates for Trade Desk (TTD) citing momentum from new advertiser wins and the fact that platform spend and attach rates are benefiting from the recent New Wave product launch. He believes recent weakness in Trade Desk shares may be related to worries over online reports suggesting Amazon (AMZN) has discussed building a proprietary video ad serving product for its own streaming business, but sees these concerns as misplaced, Egbert added. Based on the available information, it seems like Amazon is focusing on video ad server technology, not a connected TV ad buying software tool, which would pit it against Trade Desk partners Comcast's (CMCSA) Freewheel and Google (GOOGL) Ad Manager, not Trade Desk itself, Egbert explains. He maintains a Buy rating on Trade Desk and raised his price target on the stock to $155 from $130.

Amazon to be accelerant of disruption coming for healthcare, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes believes disruption is coming for healthcare and that Amazon (AMZN) will be an accelerant of this disruption. Further, the analyst sees a parallel with the fast changes in health insurance which took place in the 90's, when health insurance changed from 90% indemnity to 80% managed care within ten years. Wilkes thinks Amazon is developing a series of business strategies for entering healthcare market segments, namely directly entering online pharmacy, creating a disruptor in the employer healthcare space through its venture with Berkshire (BRK.A) and JPMorgan (JPM), and entering digital consumer healthcare spaces including using Alexa for consumer engagement and behavior modification.

Amazon will need to address productivity after wage increase, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Brandon Fletcher notes that Amazon has announced a company-wide minimum wage increase to $15/hour effective at the beginning of November. Though most retailers announced some variation of store employee wage increase or alternative benefit over the past few years, this jump in wages goes beyond any other retailers' immediate plans, he points out. On the one hand, the analyst believes this is an interesting move to attract and retain talent, reduce turnover, and incentivize better service levels while managing public perception. On the other, in traditional brick and mortar retail, these types of wage increases need to go hand in hand with productivity improvements, and Amazon will need to address productivity if they want Whole Foods to continue being a profitable segment of their business, he contends.

Amazon's 'savvy' wage hike to minimally impact profitability, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba views the Amazon.com's announcement of a minimum wage hike to $15 per hour as a "savvy move" that should result in lower fulfillment center employee turnover. The news is a "public relations victory" for Amazon, Chukumba tells investors in a research note. Further, he believes the wage increase will have a "fairly limited" on the company's overall profitability. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Amazon with a $2,200 price target.
