Google to shut down Google+ four months early after second data leak

David Thacker, VP, Product Management, G Suite, said in a blog post: "In October, we announced that we'd be sunsetting the consumer version of Google+ and its APIs because of the significant challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers' expectations, as well as the platform's low usage. We've recently determined that some users were impacted by a software update introduced in November that contained a bug affecting a Google+ API. We discovered this bug as part of our standard and ongoing testing procedures and fixed it within a week of it being introduced. No third party compromised our systems, and we have no evidence that the app developers that inadvertently had this access for six days were aware of it or misused it in any way. With the discovery of this new bug, we have decided to expedite the shut-down of all Google+ APIs; this will occur within the next 90 days. In addition, we have also decided to accelerate the sunsetting of consumer Google+ from August 2019 to April 2019. While we recognize there are implications for developers, we want to ensure the protection of our users." Thacker added that "Our testing revealed that a Google+ API was not operating as intended. We fixed the bug promptly and began an investigation into the issue. Our investigation into the impact of the bug is ongoing, but here is what we have learned so far: We have confirmed that the bug impacted approximately 52.5 million users in connection with a Google+ API. With respect to this API, apps that requested permission to view profile information that a user had added to their Google+ profile-like their name, email address, occupation, age -- were granted permission to view profile information about that user even when set to not-public. In addition, apps with access to a user's Google+ profile data also had access to the profile data that had been shared with the consenting user by another Google+ user but that was not shared publicly... We will sunset all Google+ APIs in the next 90 days. We have also decided to accelerate sunsetting consumer Google+, bringing it forward from August 2019 to April 2019. We want to give users ample opportunity to transition off of consumer Google+, and over the coming months, we will continue to provide users with additional information, including ways they can safely and securely download and migrate their data."

After proxy, Stifel says Google could come back with bid for Red Hat
After Red Hat (RHT) filed a proxy on Friday evening related to its pending acquisition by IBM (IBM) that mentioned three other parties interested in a potential purchase, Stifel analyst Brad Reback said he believes that "Party A" in the filing is Microsoft (MSFT), that "Party B" is Google (GOOGL) and that "Party C" is Amazon (AMZN). If he is correct with that assessment of the identities of the parties, it is a clear indication that Red Hat shopped itself to the "logical players" during the negotiation process, said Reback, who believes there is still a chance Google may come back and make a bid for Red Hat given the change of leadership in the Google Cloud unit. The analyst, who views Red Hat as a unique asset with strong enterprise relationships, hybrid cloud capabilities, and an open source heritage, keeps a Hold rating and $190 price target on the stock given the existing deal with IBM.

AWS revenue could double to $56B-plus by 2021, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brent Bracelin notes that the annual November trek to Las Vegas for AWS (AMZN) reInvent commences on Tuesday. The analyst believes 2019 could mark the first year AWS adds an incremental $10B within a single year as cloud and digital transformation becomes a mainstream phenomena driving AWS revenue to $35B-plus and operating profits above $10B for the first time. Looking out three years to 2021, Bracelin estimates AWS revenue could double to an estimated $56B-plus from $25B this year. Even at that scale, this would assume AWS might capture just 4% share of a trillion-dollar market leaving ample room for IaaS alternative platforms like Microsoft Azure (MSFT) and Google Cloud (GOOG; GOOGL) to also sustain high-growth at scale, he contends. Bottom line, the analyst believes AWS is likely to remain a bright spot within the broad Amazon product portfolio from both a revenue growth and profitability perspective during a cloud-first era.

MKM Partners lowers price targets on Alphabet and Facebook
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson lowers his price target on Alphabet (GOOGL) to $1,365 from $1,465 and on Facebook (FB) to $190 from $230 as part of his broader research note for the Internet Applications and Media sector. The analyst states that both of these stocks have been underperforming the Nasdaq on 1-month, 3-month, and year-to-date basis, but believes that Alphabet's underperformance has more to do with a rotation away from growth given its "remarkably consistent" performance and its expected moderating traffic acquisition rate costs. Sanderson says that while Facebook stock is the "furthest from its intrinsic value", it continues to face a "challenging event path with engagement shift toward lower monetizing apps" and the expected cost increase to build greater "safety and security competencies". He also believes that Facebook business model will normalize at "much lower profit margin" because of these added costs. The analyst keeps Alphabet and Facebook ratings at Buy. As part of his research note, Sanderson also maintains a Buy rating on Twitter (TWTR) with a price target of $43. The analyst contends that the company has "compelling upside potential as monetization catches up to engagement growth", with added optionality coming from potential "service breaks-through to the mass market."
