Fly Intel: Wall Street's top stories at midday

Stocks opened sharply higher as the market rebounded after two days of frenetic selling. The pullback has put the market on pace for its worst weekly performance since March and had put almost 75% of stocks in the S&P in correction territory. The averages have moved in a fairly tight range since the open, though the averages have been bleeding off their best levels. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., import prices rose 0.5% in September, while export prices were flat, both of which were a little better than forecast. The preliminary October reading of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index was down 1.1 points to 99.0 compared to the final 100.1 reading for September. COMPANY NEWS: Big banks are kicking off the earnings season, with JPMorgan (JPM) reporting better than expected third quarter earnings per share and a 7% increase in assets under management for the quarter. Of note, CEO Jamie Dimon said on the bank's quarterly call that the market will not take it well if rates go up. Meanwhile, Wells Fargo (WFC) reported lower than expected Q3 earnings but reported revenue in-line with consensus estimates. CEO Tim Sloan commented that the company continues to make progress to "build a better Wells Fargo." Additionally, Citi (C) reported Q3 EPS that beat Wall Street expectations, though revenue was lower than the consensus estimate. CEO Michael Corbat noted, however, that the lender is "firmly on track" to deliver on its fiscal 2018 financial targets. PNC Financial (PNC) also reported better than expected quarterly results... Meanwhile, General Electric (GE) shares were about 1% lower after the conglomerate moved the date of its Q3 earnings release and webcast to October 30 from October 25. The company moved the call to allow GE chairman and CEO Larry Culp to complete initial business reviews and site visits following his appointment on October 1, GE stated. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the noteworthy gainers was Iovance Biotherapeutics (IOVA), which rose 20% after the company reported results from an FDA end of Phase 2 meeting and provided a corporate update. Also higher was Snap (SNAP), which gained 5% after Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold while cutting his price target for the shares to $8 from $9. Among the notable losers was Wabash (WNC), which fell 22% after it provided lower than expected guidance for Q3 and cut its FY18 earnings guidance. Also lower was Alder Biopharmaceuticals (ALDR), which slipped 3% after Mizuho analyst Difei Yang downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy and cut her price target for the shares to $15 from $29. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 77.85, or 0.31%, to 25,130.68, the Nasdaq was up 87.35, or 1.19%, to 7,416.41, and the S&P 500 was up 16.49, or 0.60%, to 2,744.86.

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.

JPMorgan mobile launch a catalyst for industry consolidation, says Deutsche
Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell believes JPMorgan's (JPM) reported rollout of online trading to its 47M customers next week should be a catalyst for online broker industry consolidation. The analyst believes the news supports his TD Ameritrade (AMTD), E-Trade (ETFC) merger scenario thesis. He points out that his model already includes "substantial" trade price compression.

JPMorgan mobile trading platform 'another salvo' on online brokers, says Citi
JPMorgan's (JPM) reported zero cost mobile trading service to be launched next week is "another salvo" in the war on broker dealers' fundamentals, Citi analyst William Katz tells investors in a research note. JPMorgan's move further underscores the commoditization risk to pricing across the retail broker dealer complex, particularly online brokers, the analyst adds. Further, he believes the new product adds an additional degree of difficulty to pricing a potential E-Trade (ETFC) acquisition or other retail broker deals. The analyst's work suggests negative 3% and negative 1% earnings risk to TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Charles Schwab (SCHW), respectively. However, Katz believes much of the negativity is already priced into Ameritrade following yesterday's selloff. For Schwab, he believes continued pressure on Investor Services presents further downside risk in the stock from here.

UBS analyst Saul Martinez reassessed Wells Fargo client engagement and employee sentiment and found that app download data was encouraging and showed no slowdown in momentum. Employee sentiment, however, showed a material weakening. The analyst said meaningful improvements in earnings power and profitability require revenue to stabilize and the recent share weakness may be due to concerns that business momentum and top line growth will continue to lag. Martinez maintained his Buy rating and $63 price target on Wells Fargo shares.

This rejection would be a negative for Wells as it may be required to spend more and take more time to satisfy regulators, the analyst writes. He also views the news negatively overall for the bank's ongoing regulatory issues. Juneja reiterates an Underweight rating on shares of Wells Fargo.

However, Kotowski notes that banks are trading at an average relative P/E of just ~66% relative to the S&P 500 and returning to a historical avg valuation of 73%-80% range would imply over a thousand basis points of outperformance by the group. In his view, the U.S. banks are, on the whole, in "very good" shape.

In his view, Citi's stock had been hurt on perceptions of the U.S. relationship with Mexico.

Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski maintained a Perform rating on Wells Fargo (WFC) after recent meetings with CFO John Shrewsberry. In a research note to investors, Kotowski says there was nothing that shakes his view that the next few quarterly earnings reports are likely to still be "choppy," and notes that Shewsberry "readily acknowledged" that there was much work to be done to get the consent order lifted. At the same time, the analyst contends that shares are not trading at much of a discount versus other high performing banks like JPMorgan (JPM) and PNC (PNC) and says he favors companies that have lower but rising ROTCEs that are trading near TBV, especially Citi (C), CIT (CIT) and Goldman (GS).

The analyst keeps his Top Pick rating and $170 price target however, saying the bank is well positioned for higher interest rates that would expand its net interest income and also has a high 42% of the total component for its non-interest income. Cassidy adds that the regulatory environment benefits could also exceed his expectations.

The analyst said turning the company around will take years, but he has every confidence that Larry Culp is the leader for the job. He said based on his valuation metrics, he could see near-term downside in the share before they begin climbing. Winoker maintained his Neutral rating and $13 price target on General electric shares.

Further, the oncologist believes the limited duration of response could improve in a second NSCLC study incorporating key "biomarkers," the analyst points out. Amin believes Iovance Biotherapeutics could incorporate some of these key learnings into its two Phase I/II NSCLC studies. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Iovance with a $31 price target.

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 UPGRADES LUMENTUM AFTER SELLOFF: JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee upgraded Lumentum (LITE) to Overweight from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $80. The 19% stock decline from the highs in late August, driven by concerns relative to U.S.-China trade, over-appreciates the "modest risks" for Lumentum, Chatterjee said. He believes this creates an "attractive buying opportunity" to capitalize on the near-term improvement in the earnings outlook. GOLDMAN CUTS HUNTINGTON TO SELL: Goldman Sachs analyst Noah Poponak downgraded Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $208 from $220. Poponak said Huntington is now the most expensive stock in his Defense coverage on economic, price-to-earnings and free cash flow yield. The analyst believes the stock could underperform Defense peers in the medium-term given the valuation. JEFFRIES STARTS HERBALIFE WITH A BUY: Jefferies analyst Akshay Jagdale started Herbalife Nutrition (HLF) with a Buy rating and $65 price target. After a period of "muted growth," Herbalife's sales looked poised to accelerate to a more normalized range of 5%-9%, Jagdale believes. He thinks the company should be able to grow at least in line with its total addressable market growth rate of 6%. This, coupled with margin expansion and accretive free cash flow usage, should drive "significant" earnings upside and support a "growth company valuation," Jagdale said. JPMORGAN RAISES PRICE TARGET ON NY TIMES: JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani raised her price target for New York Times (NYT) to $32 and reiterated an Overweight rating on the shares ahead of the company's Q3 results. The analyst said that while quarterly subscriber growth may continue to be volatile, the company's longer-term trends are positive. She expects New York Times' growth to "remain at elevated levels for the foreseeable future." SNAP PRICE TARGET CUT AT GOLDMAN SACHS: Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry lowered his price target for Snap (SNAP) to $11 from $17, while reiterating a Buy rating on the shares. With Snap shares down 50% since the company reported Q2 results, beyond the broader weakness in social media, the analyst believes investors are clearly focused on the impact competition is having on the company's user growth, ability to monetize, and capital needs. Terry continues to believe that a Twitter-like (TWTR) turnaround is possible, particularly as the new Android app comes out of Alpha later this quarter. However, it is unlikely that Q3 results will show any signs of that as reported DAUs decline and engagement is negatively impacted by the redesign/competition, he said.

It is not too late for management to find ways to reverse recent usage trends and generally improve monetization regardless of those usage trends, Wieser tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes Snap could become an attractive candidate to go private with the stock's price at current levels. Wieser views Snap's risk/reward as favorable following the recent selloff.

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. MICROSOFT UPGRADED TO OUTPERFORM AFTER PULLBACK: Macquarie analyst Sarah Hindlian upgraded Microsoft (MSFT) to Outperform from Neutral and raised her price target on the shares to $121, saying she is taking advantage of the pullback in shares. Hindlian views Microsoft as a relatively defensive name with long-term earnings power and expects a strong start to FY19 following constructive field work. CITI UPGRADES NETFLIX TO BUY: Citi analyst Mark May upgraded Netflix (NFLX) to Buy from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $375. The valuation, following this week's selloff, has reached a level that warrants an "opportunistic" upgrade to Buy, May said. Netflix has a highly recurring subscription-based revenue business that delivers "significant value" to consumers, and its management team has a strong track record of execution, the analyst contended. Further, he believes the company's fundamentals remain strong and that is has opportunity to continue growing international subscribers. SQUARE UPGRADED TO BUY AFTER PULLBACK: Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Graham upgraded Square (SQ) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $90 from $60. The recent pullback in the shares creates a long-term opportunity in a "truly disruptive and well-run company," Graham said. He believes the departure of CFO Sarah Friar is more about going to a promising company as CEO rather than walking away from a risk. PIVOTAL UPGRADES SNAP TO BUY: Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser upgraded Snap (SNAP) to Buy from Hold while lowering his price target for the shares to $8 from $9. The analyst said that despite declining usage and liquidity, the data he looks at is showing a "widening user base, although one which is collectively reducing its time on the platform." It is not too late for management to find ways to reverse recent usage trends and generally improve monetization regardless of those usage trends, Wieser added. Further, the analyst believes Snap could become an attractive candidate to go private with the stock's price at current levels. JPMORGAN DOWNGRADES ESTEE LAUDER TO NEUTRAL: JPMorgan analyst Andrea Teixeira downgraded Estee Lauder (EL) to Neutral and lowered her price target for the shares to $138 from $154. There may be a deceleration in the travel retail channel ahead now that Chinese customs agents are implementing tighter controls at the border, according to local source, Teixeira noted. Further, she believes the de-rating in luxury peers related to the group's "outsized exposure" to Chinese consumers will likely put a cap on Estee Lauder's valuation as well. The analyst also sees less opportunity for earnings beats on margins in the near term given tariff costs.

Morgan Stanley starts Alder at Underweight given crowded migraine market
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Jeffrey Hung started Alder Biopharmaceuticals with an Underweight rating, noting that the company's migraine drug will be the fourth to market of the same class. Alder's drug has a fast onset, but he views efficacy across these drugs as largely similar, Hung tells investors. The consensus estimate of $750M for Alder's drug by 2025 needs to come down, according to the analyst, who set a $19 price target on the stock.
