Disney spends $20M to support Florida's Amendment 3, Bloomberg says

Disney and the Seminole Tribe of Florida have given roughly $36M to bolster a Florida ballot initiative coming up in November that would give voters the power to block any expansion of casino gambling, Bloomberg reports. If approved, Amendment 3 of the state's constitution would require 60% state-wide support for any new casinos, the report notes. Disney alone has spent $20M in support of the initiative, the report notes. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Kannan Venkateshwar saying the stock is likely to become a "core holding" again. 2. Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) double upgraded to Buy from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Nathan Rich saying he now believes consensus estimates are achievable and that Dentsply's valuation is attractive relative to Medtech peers. 3. PayPal (PYPL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Mark Palmer saying the company's Venmo monetization progress was the deciding factor in his rating change. 4. Roku (ROKU) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Mahaney saying the company's valuation has become more attractive following a 25% pullback in its stock price but believes Roku offers the "best opportunity for upwards estimates revisions." 5. O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Christopher Horvers saying he sees "strong" fundamentals with "structurally positive industry factors." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Barclays sees Disney becoming 'core holding' again, upgrades to Overweight
Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar upgraded Disney to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $130 from $105. The shares closed yesterday down 91c to $116.18. The stock is likely to become a "core holding" again, Venkateshwar tells investors in a research note partially titled "The Force Awakens." While almost everything about Disney's over-the-top story is conjecture and success is not a given, the company has the "key mix of assets to be successful and the opportunity from this pivot could be substantial," contends the analyst. He believes Disney's investor day could prove to be a catalyst to frame the scale of the OTT opportunity and help the company build a credible terminal value "story"' around the stock. And the analyst thinks current media multiples are more about terminal value optionality than near-term core trends. "In this respect, there are a few other names with a credible terminal value story other than Disney," writes Venkateshwar.

Disney shares appear 'compelling' at current levels, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes Disney (DIS) shares appear "compelling" at a current valuation of under 13x "core" FY20 pro forma EPS given the company's opportunity to maximize the potential of the acquired Fox (FOXA) assets and scale a direct-to-consumer business. He attributes investor reluctance to own Disney shares to uncertainty about its ability to simultaneously execute on a large acquisition, launch a global direct-to-consumer business and grow, but Swinburne sees this "complexity discount" as an opportunity, he tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating on Disney shares with a $135 price target.
