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.

Macquarie upgrades Microsoft to Outperform after pullback to 'correct' mistake
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Sarah Hindlian upgraded Microsoft to Outperform from Neutral, taking advantage of the market pullback to "correct" her rating on "a name [she has sorely missed." The company has been differentiating Azure in several critical ways that she did not fully appreciate, such as being both enterprise-friendly and aggressive in layering in unique and incremental services such as Artificial Intelligence, Azure Stack, Azure Sphere, and a broad focus on edge computing, Hindlian tells investors. Additionally, Microsoft continues to drive the business into higher-growth arenas, like public cloud and what she expects to be an emerging successful gaming services platform. While many are worrying that the company's robust earnings trend will not persist as comps get tougher, Hindlian sees ample revenue drivers and raised her price target on Microsoft shares to $121 from $106.
