EU court order keeps Yelp out of Google appeal, Bloomberg reports

Google (GOOG, GOOGL) won a European Union court order that stops Yelp (YELP) and advocacy group Consumer Watchdog from partnering with the EU at a legal challenge of a 2017 antitrust fine, Bloomberg reports, citing an EU General Court filing. The filing said Yelp "cannot be directly affected" by the decision over Google's comparison-shopping search service after the company and Consumer Watchdog sought to assist the EU in the case.

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.

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.

Facebook testing search ads may unlock new revenue stream, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post kept his Buy rating and $190 price target on Facebook (FB), saying there is potential for "high value search activity" on its platform if its testing of search ads within the Marketplace section - as reported by TechCrunch - bears fruit. The analyst notes that the report anticipates the search ad testing to be rolled out with a small set of auto and e-commerce advertisers, modeling that the company could generate up to $5B in annual search related ad revenue under the assumption of offering a 75% discount to Google's (GOOGL) revenue per search. Post maintains his positive view on Facebook and its monetization opportunities.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Yelp (YELP) downgraded to Hold om Buy at SunTrust with analyst Matthew Thornton citing a surprising and disappointing set of Q3 results following a "stellar" first half of 2018, highlighted by the return of sales execution issues, yielding an unexpected slowdown in gross account adds and continued churn. 2. Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Jeffrey Bernstein saying he sees headwinds persisting following the company's "disappointing" Q3 results and views the valuation as full at current share levels. 3. Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan and to Market Perform at Wells Fargo. 4. Skyworks (SWKS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Atif Malik saying the company is being impacted by broad smartphone weakness, disappointing unit sales of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone XR, and a high Apple concentration, which represented 39% of sales in fiscal 2019. 5. AB InBev (BUD) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst David Coleman citing the company's dividend cut, which he believes reduces the attraction of the stock to income investors.

Citi says now not the time to throw in towel on Yelp
Citi analyst Mark May believes the 27% post-earnings pullback Friday in shares of Yelp is understandable as the company's growth slowed, "and this represents another sales-related execution issue." However, now is not the time to throw in the towel on the stock, May tells investors in a research note. The factors driving the latest missteps appear addressable and similar to past issues that the company has ultimately worked through, says the analyst. Further, May notes that management has been able to improve margins and maintain profit growth. In addition, the valuation "is at levels that have represented a floor historically," May writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Yelp.

Yelp price target lowered to $40 from $56 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson lowered his price target on Yelp to $40, saying the stock is "damaged" because of the company's flawed business model and execution challenges. The analyst keeps his Buy rating however, saying the service still "provides value to a sizeable audience, continues to expand its value-add and connects many businesses to high-value customers and jobs". Sanderson expects Yelp's value to be "eventually monetized". Sanderson bases his price target on his view that "low-growth Internet stocks with spotty execution should trade around 10-tmes EBITDA" multiple.

Yelp could be worth closer to $50 in potential buyout, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton believes that exploring a sale is an alternative for Yelp (YELP), whether to a strategic buyer or to private equity. To the former, the analyst recalls Yelp was reportedly approached in May 2015 and hired advisors, though nothing materialized in terms of a transaction. To the latter, SQN principals come from mid-market tech private equity backgrounds, he notes. Comparing Yelp to Pandora (P) and Web.com (WEB), the analyst points out that these assets have large inside salesforces and are in the process of being acquired or have been acquired recently by a strategic and by private equity, respectively. Further, Thornton notes that Yelp trades at about 2.3 times 2019 EV/gross profit versus Pandora and WEB at about 4 times, which could potentially value Yelp closer to $50. He maintains a Hold rating on Yelp's shares.
