Netflix, Palo Alto offer growth at a discount, Barron's says

As stocks search for a bottom, many high-quality tech and communications-services names are starting to look like attractive growth opportunities, priced at bargain-basement levels, Bill Luby writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Two are particularly alluring because of the extent of their falls and their growth prospects: Netflix (NFLX) in communications services and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) in the cybersecurity segment of the computer networking industry, the report notes.

Imperial parts with consensus, raises Netflix estimates for Q4
Imperial Capital analyst David Miller says he is "parting with consensus and guidance" and raising his Q4 domestic subscriber net additions estimate for Netflix from 1.50M to 1.55M and international subscriber net additions estimate from 6.10M to 6.25M. The reason is due not only to returning episodic installments of "House of Cards" and "Narcos," but also series originally intended for international audiences that are "quickly finding viewers" in the U.S., Miller tells investors in a research note. Examples are "Elite," filmed in Spain with an all-Spanish cast, "3%," a sci-fi drama filmed and set in Brazil, The Rain, another drama filmed and set in Denmark, and Dark, a crime drama filmed and set in German, says the analyst. Miller also increased his Q4 estimate for revenue to $4.22B and for net income to 28c per share from 26c. Consensus estimates currently sit at $4.20B and 24c per share, he points out. Miller keeps an Outperform rating on Netflix with a $459 price target, which represents 58% upside from current share levels.

Netflix, Amazon price targets raised at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson raised his price targets on Buy rated Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN) to $415 from $395 and $2,240 from $2,215 respectively as part of his broader research note titled "Victims of Risk-off Environment; Recommend Buying Weakness". The analyst states that these stocks have been among the weaker performers in the underperforming Internet sector, but should become "excellent performers" over the next 12 months if his view attributing the recent correction in the broader market to a late-cycle pause amidst geo-political uncertainty and Fed concerns proves to be correct. As part of this research note, Sanderson also keeps his Buy rating on Spotify (SPOT) but lowers its price target to $200 from $245, applying a 25-times forward earnings multiple in rolling out his valuation to 2022, with added currency related pressure against the "much less contentious" expected renewal rates in 2019.

comScore resumed with a Buy at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin resumed coverage of comScore (SCOR) with a Buy rating and $20 price target. The analyst recommends purchase of the stock at current price levels saying comScore is a pure-play way to invest in the shift toward streaming and over-the-top viewing. The company offers monetization at a "much lower valuation" than other over-the-top alternatives such as Netflix (NFLX), Roku (ROKU) and Trade Desk (TTD), Martin tells investors in a research note.

Netflix seeing 'consistent satisfaction trends', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney kept his Outperform rating and $450 price target on Netflix after reviewing the findings from his quarterly survey of over 1,500 respondents. The analyst notes that the company's penetration levels have gone up to 59% from 56% in November and that 69% of its users are "Extremely" or "Very Satisfied", which is consistent with positive results of the past 6 quarters. On the down side, Mahaney notes that 9.4% of subscriptions indicated that they are "very" or "extremely likely" to cancel, which is the highest level in the last 27 surveys.

Palo Alto Networks price target cut to $160 from $185 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Brad Zelnick reiterated an Underperform rating on Palo Alto Networks and cut his price target to $160 following the company's "mixed" Q1 results. In a research note to investors, Zelnick says the disparity between product and billings performance continues to suggest an especially strong refresh dynamic, and while he maintains respect for Palo Alto's market leadership, strong execution and superlative messaging, he believes his secular call is just beginning to play out as firewalls cede relevance in a cloud-first world.

Palo Alto Networks price target raised to $280 from $274 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi raised his price target on Palo Alto Networks to $280 and kept his Buy rating after "another beat and raise quarter", saying the company's strong results were driven by sequential subscription revenue growth. The analyst adds that the above-consensus guidance was the factor of the "uniqueness" of the company's Application Framework. Chokshi is also positive on Palo Alto Networks' CEO plan to extend its business "from security to the intersection of security and AI".

Palo Alto Networks price target lowered to $205 from $260 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman lowered his price target on Palo Alto Networks to $205 and kept his Market Perform rating, saying that while the company beat on Q1 earnings, its billings were in line, "which is a downtick from the outperformance in prior quarters". The analyst believes that the free cash flow multiple on Palo Alto Networks is "reasonable", but also warns about the overhang on the stock lingering because of the potential for M&A. Bachman adds that he is concerned by the "durability" of the company's billings growth, adding that his price target reduction reflects "lower free cash flow estimates and a lower multiple due to a reduced equity risk environment".
