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. WELLS SAYS 'MAY BE AS GOOD AS IT GETS' FOR COSTCO: Wells Fargo analyst Edward Kelly downgraded Costco Wholesale to Market Perform from Outperform with an unchanged price target of $235. While Costco remains one of the highest quality companies within consumer and its near-term results should be positive, "this may be as good as it gets," Kelly told investors. He believes the stock's 50% rally over the past year "has left it priced for perfection" and that Costco's comps "seem destined to slow in 2019" as it laps tough comparisons. JPMORGAN ADVISE CAUTION ON GE: A read of the proxies for the General Electric (GE) and Wabtec (WAB) transportation deal suggests "caution is warranted" in taking the forecasts "to the bank," JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa wrote in a research note. The situation "looks eerily similar" to GE's Baker Hughes (BHGE) deal, where management went from pitching $8B in future EBITDA several years forward to "slowly pulling annual guidance once public," with a consensus that is now at $5B, Tusa said. He believes that as each of GE's Industrial businesses get broken out clearly with "clean GAAP" transparency, the less impressive the financials look. Tusa keeps an Underweight rating on General Electric shares. CORNING UPGRADED ON OPTICAL DEMAND STRENGTH: Citi analyst Asiya Merchant upgraded Corning (GLW) to Buy from Neutral with a $40 price target, telling investors that the shares are "poised to continue to grind higher" in the next 12-18 months. The analyst expects Corning's earnings and margins growth will be driving by optical demand strength and better display pricing. JPMORGAN CUTS VALVOLINE TO UNDERWEIGHT ON NEW AMAZON COMPETITION: JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas downgraded Valvoline (VVV) to Underweight from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $20 from $22. Industry trade publication National Oil and Lube New is reporting that Amazon (AMZN) has launched its first private label motor oil called AmazonBasics Full Synthetic Motor Oil, Zekauskas noted. While too early to gauge the effects of the Amazon entry on the Valvoline brand, the new competition from Amazon will likely reduce Valvoline's trading multiple "because the lubricant industry structure is probably weaker for its entry," Zekauskas contends. NVIDIA TARGET HIKED TO $350: Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill raised his price target on Nvidia to $350 from $325 after his investor meeting with its Data Center GM and Director of IR, saying the discussions about the company's AI/ML dominance reminded him of "Wintel" platform during the PC computing era. The analyst believes that Nvidia is "uniquely positioned" to capitalize on the next wave of computing, taking a larger inference market share with its new TensorRT Hyperscaler Platform.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Corning (GLW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Asiya Merchant saying the shares are "poised to continue to grind higher" in the next 12-18 months as investors appreciate the company's "multiple vectors" for revenue growth, diversification and margin expansion. 2. Coca-Cola European Partners (CCE) was upgraded to Outperform at Wells Fargo and to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna. 3. VF Corp. (VFC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst John Kernan saying VF's disclosure of a 23% operating margin for Vans implies that the brand alone could generate $1B-plus in free cash flow by fiscal 2022. 4. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Sean Meakim saying Helmerich exceeded his expectations in adapting to the upgrade cycle. 5. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Guggenheim sees 5% iPhone drop next year, downgrades Apple to Neutral
Guggenheim analyst Robert Cihra downgraded Apple to Neutral from Buy and removed his prior $245 price target for the shares. The stock closed yesterday down $1.94 to $192.23. The average selling price of the iPhone has increased a "dramatic" $220, or 40%, over the past 10 years, reflecting its "growing value to both consumer and business markets," Cihra tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out, however, that nearly half of that increase came in fiscal 2018 alone. This makes a "period of digestion now likely," Cihra writes in a note partially titled "ASPs No Longer Enough." The analyst believes Apple's growth via average selling price is now "widely known." The iPhone's nearly 60% contribution to revenue and profits is "looking like a headwind again," says Cihra. Following early supply chain cuts, exemplified by Corning's (GLW) "softer" Q4 gorilla glass guidance back in October and this week's warnings from 3D sensing laser supplier Lumentum (LITE) and LCD supplier Japan Display, the analyst now estimates iPhone units will decline 5% year-over-year in fiscal 2019. He cut his fiscal 2019 earnings per estimate for Apple to $12.97 from $13.41 and revenue estimate to $273B from $281B.

Adtran price target lowered to $17 at Needham on Q3 revenue slip
Needham analyst Richard Valera nudged his price target on Adtran (ADTN) lower to $17 from $18 and also lowered his FY19 EPS view to 15c from 42c after its Q3 revenues came in "light due to an explainable slip out of shipments to NBN". The analyst also notes the management's more downbeat view of its G.Fast program with AT&T (T), along with a generally more muted outlook for next year. Valera keeps a Buy on Adtran however, stating that although the stock is setting new 52-week lows on a series of disappointments, its valuation multiple of 1.1-times enterprise value to expected 2018 sales is supportive of the rating.

Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst David Palmer saying while Q3 earnings may be "lackluster," he expects comps to improve from 4% to 6% through the second half of FY19 and raises his FY20 EPS vie to $16.30 from $15.86 on implied 3-turn multiple increase to 31-times forward earnings. 5. SAP (SAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Michael Briest saying the company deserves credit for sustaining 6%-10% underlying sales growth over the past 12 quarters, with "impressive" cloud growth at scale.

The success Netflix has seen has the potential to expand to other carriers and markets and provide a tailwind for Digital Turbine, said Aftahi, who keeps a Buy rating and $3 price target on the shares.

Miller is also positive on the management's capital deployment and 5G upgrade cycle investment.
