Elon Musk wrong about short sellers, Barron's says

Elon Musk has obsessed about shorts as Tesla shares bounced down from last year's peak of $384 to a Friday close of $259, and one should expect as entrepreneur to hate short sellers as they want his stock to drop, Bill Alpert writes in this week's edition of Barron's. The bet against Tesla is sizable but still one cannot blame the shorts for the slide in the stock, the publication notes. There are always way more longs than shorts, and while some shorts make bogus statements, so do many longs and none more prominently than Musk himself, the report added. Reference Link

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. WALMART UPPED TO BUY AT DEUTSCHE: Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell upgraded Walmart (WMT) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $113 from $89. The retailer is reaping returns on the many years of investment in e-commerce and customer service, Trussell said. The analyst believes Walmart is now in position to accelerate market share gains in grocery while also growing EBIT dollars and expanding return on investment. He believes Walmart's portfolio of assets is differentiated in the "rapidly changing" retail landscape. In late morning trading, Walmart is up just over 2%. KROGER CUT TO SELL AT DEUTSCHE: Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell downgraded Kroger (KR) to Sell from Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $24 from $30. Kroger's strategy to aggressively expand e-commerce capabilities, optimize space within current footprint, and compete on price "will likely be significantly more costly than the company and consensus are currently forecasting," Trussell said. The analyst, while believing Kroger may be one of the winners in food retail over the long term, thinks the "period of rapid change" in the grocery sector will likely make it challenging for the company to grow profits "while playing from a position of weakness." JEFFERIES UPGRADES BAKER HUGHES TO BUY: Jefferies analyst Brad Handler upgraded Baker Hughes (BHGE) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $34. Earnings power of $4 per share next decade "seems tangible," as is free cash flow conversion of greater than 90% of estimated earnings, Handler said. Further, he thinks General Electric (GE) "fire-sale" risk is small. MACQUARIE STARTS TESLA WITH AN OUTPERFORM: Macquarie analyst Maynard Um initiated Tesla (TSLA) with an Outperform rating and $430 price target, stating that he sees the company having unique potential among carmakers to be a leader in in-vehicle ecosystem platforms. In the near-term, Um also thinks Tesla has enough levers to get over its "debt maturity hump," including cash flow from ZEV credits and Model 3 sales, access to $1.2B unused debt commitment, and the potential for credit amendments. MOFFETTNATHANSON SAYS SNAP WILL NEED TO RAISE CAPITAL: MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson said he is skeptical, despite Snap (SNAP) CEO Evan Spiegel's internal memo, that the company can hit his stated 2019 goal of achieving full year positive free cash flow and profitability. Snap "is quickly running out of money," contends Nathanson, who thinks the company will need to raise capital by the middle to end of 2019. The analyst lowered his revenue estimates for 2019 and 2020 as he anticipates slower DAU and ARPU growth ahead and maintained his Neutral rating on Snap shares, though he cut his price target to $6.50 from $8.

Macquarie sees Tesla leading in 'vehicle ecosystems,' starts at Outperform
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Maynard Um initiated Tesla with an Outperform rating and $430 price target, stating that he sees the company having unique potential among carmakers to be a leader in in-vehicle ecosystem platforms. In the near-term, Um also thinks Tesla has enough levers to get over its "debt maturity hump," including cash flow from ZEV credits and Model 3 sales, access to $1.2B unused debt commitment, and the potential for credit amendments. While noting that CEO Elon Musk has said the company does not have to raise capital, Um believes an equity raise would be beneficial, he added in his initiation note to investors.
