Nielsen weighing new approaches to financial reporting

NLSN CFO Dave Anderson said some potential enhancements the company is considering in adding to its financial reporting are adding non-GAAP EPS, organic revenue growth, maintaining focus on key segments and sub-segments/simplify message. Providing annual guidance with color on quarterly expectations, as opposed to only providing annual guidance. Comments provided during Q3 earnings conference call and presentation slides.

Piper calls IHS Markit, S&P Global top picks in Information Services
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert calls IHS Markit (IHS) and S&P Global (SPGI) his top picks in the Information Services sector. Dun & Bradstreet's (DNB) pending sale to a private equity group and Nielsen's (NLSN) strategic review refocuses investor attention on M&A activity in the sector, Appert tells investors in a research note. He says that while "rich" transaction values provide an "intriguing valuation backstop for the group," he continues to focus on operating fundamentals as the key driver of stock performance.

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. ROSENBLATT BOOSTS AMD PRICE TARGET TO STREET HIGH: Rosenblatt analyst Hans Mosesmann raised his price target for AMD (AMD) shares to $30 from $27. Mosesmann's new price target represents the high among Wall Street sell-side analysts. Following the meetings, Mosesmann has renewed conviction in AMD's multi-year double digit growth profile. Further, he's impressed by the analysis investors are doing in the name after years of disregard. AMD is up 4.1% in late morning trading. CANTOR CUTS AETNA TO NEUTRAL: Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper downgraded Aetna (AET) to Neutral from Overweight with a price target of $202. The stock now trades at just a 4.6% discount to the implied CVS Health (CVS) acquisition value of about $207 per share, Halper said. He believes the narrowed deal spread reflects an increased likelihood of regulatory approval. Halper cites limited potential upside for his downgrade of Aetna to Neutral. NIELSEN UPGRADED TO NEUTRAL AT GOLDMAN: Goldman Sachs analyst George Tong upgraded Nielsen Holdings (NLSN) to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $25 from $20. With activist Elliott Management pushing for a sale and increased deal activity in the Information Services sector, Tong sees increased likelihood of Nielsen being involved in a transaction. His upgrade to Neutral and price target increase come after the analyst incorporated a potential takeover into his model. Nielsen is up 3.3% in late morning trading. IMPERIAL SEES SUBSCRIBER UPSIDE FOR NETFLIX: Imperial Capital analyst David Miller believes Netflix's (NFLX) experiment with ending billing through Apple's (AAPL) app store in 33 countries outside the U.S. likely implies upside to its Q3 international subscriber guidance. The analyst said he has a tough time believing that Netflix would "experiment" with billing infrastructure mid-quarter if it did not believe that its international subscriber levels were trending ahead of guidance. As such, Miller raised his Q3 international subscriber estimate to 4.46M from 4.35M. He kept an Outperform rating on Netflix with a $494 price target. TARGET GETS UPGRADE AND DOWNGRADE: Target (TGT) was upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Telsey Advisory, and downgraded to Peer Perform from Outperform at Wolfe Research.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Target (TGT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Telsey Advisory. 2. Deckers Brands (DECK) upgraded to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna with analyst Sam Poser saying wholesale accounts are more positive than just a few months ago following checks with both large and small retailers. 3. Nielsen (NLSN) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst George Tong saying with activist Elliott Management pushing for a sale and increased deal activity in the Information Services sector, he sees increased likelihood of Nielsen being involved in a transaction. 4. Finisar (FNSR) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Troy Jensen saying China demand is returning via Huawei and ZTE (ZTCOY), Finisar is facing easy comps following five quarters of depressed demand and the upcoming 400G cycle should provide a tailwind in 2019. 5. Coca-Cola Amatil (CCLAY) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
