UBS is 'taking the blindfold off,' upgrades Netflix shares to Buy

UBS analyst Eric Sheridan last night upgraded Netflix to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $410 from $400. The streaming giant closed yesterday up $4.70 to $324.66. After six months of stock underperformance as key debates emerged about competition, margins and free cash flow, the debates are better understood by investors and reflected in the current stock price, Sheridan tells investors in a research note partially titled "Taking The Blindfold Off." The analyst sees share upside over the near-to-medium term to subscriber growth. Current subscriber metrics such as growth, churn, spend and consumption are tracking inline to better than management's Q4 guidance and commentary, Sheridan says, citing his firm's Evidence Lab.

Netflix price target lowered to $375 from $430 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar lowered his price target for Netflix to $375 to reflect reduced multiples despite his "continued confidence in the underlying story." The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. Netflix has outlined a strategy of releasing 90 movies every year, which would make it the second-biggest movie studio after Disney in terms of production budgets, Venkateshwar tells investors in a research note titled "Films need an offline strategy." The analyst believes Netflix could see greater benefit from a more nuanced distribution strategy than a "one size fits all" approach. Franchise-oriented films will need to include theatrical release on a larger scale to optimize returns, says Venkateshwar.

Netflix search index indicates 'strong' U.S. subs in Q4, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says his analysis of Netflix search trends points to a "strong" Q4 for domestic subscribers, with international likely in-line. Consensus calls for 10.0% year-over-year domestic sub growth in Q4 and Piper's search index points to 11.5% growth, Olson tells investors in a research note. For international, Q4 consensus calls for 36.7% year-over-year sub growth and Piper's index points to 46.0% growth, adds the analyst. Olson keeps an Overweight rating on Netflix shares with a $430 price target.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Intel (INTC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Vivek Arya saying the stock provides attractive exposure to growth trends in cloud computing, AI, advanced autos and 5G. 2. Netflix (NFLX) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Heath Terry saying with the stock down 36% since record highs in July, Netflix represents one of the best risk/reward propositions in the Internet sector. 3. Shutterfly (SFLY) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Edward Yruma saying valuation is "compelling" despite concerns about the promotional environment that have materialized. 4. Honeywell (HON) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying the company looks to be benefiting from the re-rating that follows the Garrett/Resideo spins. 5. Etsy (ETSY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Heath Terry saying consensus estimates remain too low for 2019 as the company optimizes the incremental growth investments made possible by the take rate increase instituted in July 2018. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
