Apple's Q4 beat a 'positive harbinger' for Best Buy, says Loop Capital

Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Buy rating and $88 price target on Best Buy (BBY) ahead of its Q3 earnings on November 20th, saying that the positive quarter reported by Apple (AAPL) - including the higher-than-expected iPhone revenue - is a "positive harbinger" for its results. The analyst also anticipates the company to post a 3.4% increase in comps, a 30bps gross margin decline, and a 0.1% increase in SG&A expense as a percent of revenue, forecasting investor focus to also fall on any updates around the company's strategic initiatives and the management's thoughts on the impact of Sears bankruptcy.

GameStop may see Q2 upside on 'robust' Best Buy console sales, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Hold rating and $14 price target on GameStop (GME) ahead of its Q2 earnings next week, saying that "robust" sales of video game consoles and accessories at Best Buy (BBY) in the quarter is a "positive harbinger" for its results. The analyst expects investors to focus on GameStop's comps, title release slate for the second half of 2018, any update on its CEO search, and negotiations with financial sponsors and AT&T (T). Chukumba further states that while its 4.6-times current earnings multiple represents a "substantial discount to historical average levels", the valuation is appropriate given the "secular declines" in the company's core business.

Best Buy narrowing pricing gap with Amazon, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Buy rating and $88 price target on Best Buy (BBY), citing the findings of his pricing study. The analyst says Best Buy has narrowed the pricing gap relative to Amazon (AMZN) to just 1.5% on average relative to the 8% in his prior study in June - the lowest average gap since September 2017 - and expects it to continue to capture market share in the second half of 2018.

Argus looking for entry point in Best Buy
Argus analyst Chris Graja kept his Hold rating on Best Buy, saying his stance reflects his view of a fair valuation on the stock. The analyst noted however that he would look for an entry point based on his expectations of continued operating improvements being made by Best Buy's management. Graja also cites the recent credit rating affirmation of Best Buy at Moody's, which stated that the company has "sufficient financial flexibility to pursue all aspects of its strategy".

Best Buy to be major beneficiary of likely Sears liquidation, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Buy rating and $88 price target on Best Buy (BBY) after Sears Holdings (SHLD) declared bankruptcy over the weekend, saying it should be a "major beneficiary" from the latter's eventual "likely" liquidation. The analyst estimates the liquidation could add as much as 47c or 8.5% accretion to Best Buy FY19 EPS, with the company picking up a "fair share" on the consumer electronics side of the business as the "last man standing" in terms of dedicated national brick-and-mortar retailers.

35M Apple iPhones in 'window of opportunity' to upgrade, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives notes that the Street continues to be laser focused on the demand trajectory for Apple's iPhones into 2019 and is modeling iPhone shipments of 215M-220M units, which could ultimately prove to be conservative in his opinion given the underlying demand drivers. Based on his analysis, the analyst believes 35M iPhones are in the "window of opportunity" to upgrade over the next 12-18 months with Apple needing to capture a majority of these units and driving higher ASPs as part of this upgrade cycle to make a clearly successful iPhone product cycle in 2019 and lay the groundwork for future services/software growth and steady iPhone demand over the coming years. That said, while it's frustrating how Apple decided to pull the plug on unit metrics, Ives' core bull thesis does not change on the story. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $310 price target on the shares.

Handset RF revenue expectations for 1H19 could see downside, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh says that while September quarter iPhone units were mostly in-line, Apple (AAPL) had a weaker December quarter guide at $89B-$93B, noting currency headwinds making iPhones costlier. The analyst would add that most consensus Apple iPhone estimates for December quarter are being lowered quarter over quarter post-call, a headwind for more exposed RF suppliers Skyworks (SWKS)/Qorvo (QRVO). Further, Rakesh highlights that Apple would not give color on iPhone/iPad units going forward, a headwind for suppliers with the lack of visibility, and with some of the weaker emerging market currencies the same $1000/$1400 Xs/Xs Max is selling at $1400/$1900 in China/Russia and East European countries. The analyst believes 1H19 handset RF revenue expectations could see downside as higher iPhone ASPs could be a challenge.
