California DMV grants Waymo permit to begin driverless testing on public roads

Google's Waymo said in a blog post that the California Department of Motor Vehicles has just granted Waymo the first permit in the state to begin driverless testing on public roads. This permit is the result of new DMV regulations that took effect in April, which allow companies to apply for fully driverless testing within carefully defined limits, and is the product of nearly ten years of testing in California by Waymo's team. It's the first time that California has allowed tests on public roads of fully driverless cars that is, without a test driver sitting in the driver's seat. Waymo's permit includes day and night testing on city streets, rural roads and highways with posted speed limits of up to 65 miles per hour. The company said its vehicles can safely handle fog and light rain, and testing in those conditions is included in the permit. "We will gradually begin driverless testing on city streets in a limited territory and, over time, expand the area that we drive in as we gain confidence and experience to expand," Waymo added.

Alphabet price target lowered to $1,435 from $1,450 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein lowered his price target for Alphabet to $1,435 from $1,450, while reiterating an Outperform rating on the shares on attractive GARP characteristics. The analyst notes that while focus is on slowing revenue growth and reduced margins, results appear stable if looking at the two-year comp and focusing on Google Segment EBITDA. As TAC pressure continues to be moderate in Q4 and early 2019, Alphabet is on track for accelerating free cash flow/share growth, he contends, adding that upside from Waymo is not priced into shares.

IBM/Red Hat may look to partner much more with Google, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that IBM (IBM) and Red Hat (RHT) have lagged leaders such as Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG; GOOGL) in the cloud. By merging, they are trying to improve their cloud position and Horan sees them looking to use the disruptive Container/Kubernetes to create a new hybrid cloud platform. Given how far behind they are in infrastructure, the analyst believes they may look to partner much more with Google, which is a threat to Microsoft more so than AWS. While Horan thinks the deal does open up an opportunity for a combined IBM/Red Hat to enter the market with a new service, they still have a long way to go before they can compete with Microsoft and Amazon in cloud.

IBM acquisition of Red Hat 'game changing,' says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives notes that IBM (IBM) has announced a definitive deal in which it will be acquiring cloud player Red Hat (RHT) for $190 per share, thus representing an enterprise value of $34B in one of the biggest tech M&A deals ever. The analyst believes this is a "game changing" cloud acquisition that will have wide-reaching ramifications not just for IBM, but across the broader cloud and tech space and could spark an acceleration in M&A over the next 6 to 12 months. In his opinion, this was a major shot across the bow from IBM and Rometty to core cloud players such as Amazon (AMZN) Microsoft (MSFT), and Google (GOOG; GOOGL) that there is another player in town that plans to aggressively compete in this massive secular hybrid cloud shift. Further, Ives believes the combination of Red Hat and its Linux cloud platform with IBM could represent a "formidable" cloud behemoth for the coming years.

Stifel downgrades Red Hat to Hold, but sees potential for competing bid
Stifel analyst Brad Reback downgraded Red Hat (RHT) to Hold from Buy after IBM (IBM) announced an agreement to acquire the company for $190 per share. Stating that he is not aware of any M&A talks, Reback added that he would not be surprised if a hyperscale cloud vendor such as Google (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) or Oracle (ORCL) to make a competing bid given Red Hat's strategic position within on-premise datacenters. Reback raised his price target on Red Hat shares from $160 to the announced deal price of $190.

Overweight
Alphabet steadily monetizing across all 'ages' of business, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said in a post-earnings research note that Alphabet (GOOGL) is steadily monetizing and investing in its oldest, middle-age and youngest businesses. He noted that its oldest market, the U.S., is still growing 20% year-over-year and its oldest product, namely desktop search, is still growing about 7% year-over-year. Meanwhile, its innovation and investments are driving strong growth in "middle-aged" products, such as mobile search and YouTube, and the longer-term investments, like Waymo, are beginning to show "green shoots." He keeps an Overweight rating on Alphabet shares, but trimmed his price target to $1,500 from $1,515 to account for a lower adjusted EBITDA view in FY19 and FY20 due to slightly lower revenue and higher assumed investments.
