AT&T to stop selling location data amid calls for federal probe, WaPo reports

AT&T (T) has said it will stop selling customers' location data to third-party service providers following calls from federal lawmakers for a probe into the alleged misuse of data after a report found a complex chain of unauthorized information-sharing, the Washington Post reports, citing a company statement."In light of recent reports about the misuse of location services, we have decided to eliminate all location aggregation services - even those with clear consumer benefits. We are immediately eliminating the remaining services and will be done in March," the company said in a statement. T-Mobile (TMUS) CEO John Legere followed the move by saying his company would be "completely ending location aggregator work" in March and Verizon (VZ) said it was winding down its four remaining location-sharing agreements.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AT&T (T) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Michael Rollins saying he expects AT&T to further benefit from the "measured" promotional environment in wireless, while improving its competitive position from FirstNet and the marketing of its network enhancements, branded 5G Evolution. 2. Sanofi (SNY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Peter Welford saying he believes European large-cap pharmaceuticals are entering a period of sustained earnings momentum which should justify valuations above the historic average for the sector. 3. Total (TOT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill. 4. Zynga (ZNGA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie. 5. Allstate (ALL) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Edward Jones.

AT&T likely to raise dividend despite deleveraging goals, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simon Flannery said he expects AT&T to raise its quarterly dividend by 1c to 51c from 50c per share as early as this Friday, which would be in-line with its timing last year. He would view such an increase, which would not be that notable normally but takes on added significance due to the company's high leverage and desire to delever, as a signal of confidence in the recent 2019 business and financial outlook, Flannery tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $37 price target on AT&T shares.

Citi upgrades AT&T to Buy with shares down 23% year-to-date
Citi analyst Michael Rollins upgraded AT&T to Buy from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $34. The stock closed yesterday down 24c to $29.91. The analyst expects AT&T to further benefit from the "measured" promotional environment in wireless, while improving its competitive position from FirstNet and the marketing of its network enhancements, branded 5G Evolution. Further, the company has "several levers" to manage free cash flow and support its net debt deleveraging goals for 2019, Rollins tells investors in a research note. In addition, the analyst believes the stock's 23% decline year-to-date provides a better risk/reward scenario. AT&T trades at a price-to-earnings ratio of about eight times the analyst's revised 2019 outlook and at a dividend yield of about 6.7%. He sees a buying opportunity at current share levels.

Cisco results bode well for Arista Networks, Nutanix, says JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Erik Suppiger noted that Cisco (CSCO) reported Q1 EPS and revenues ahead of consensus, stating that he believes the "robust" results bode well for the broader networing and security markets, including vendors such as Arista Networks (ANET), Nutanix (NTNX), Extreme Networks (EXTR) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW). Service provider bookings had positive growth for the second consecutive quarter, though management acknowledged that the growth may not be sustainable and Suppiger said he thinks this quarter included a large deal with T-Mobile (TMUS). The strength in data center and campus switching that Cisco called out suggests market demand trends are favorable for Arista and Extreme Networks, said the analyst. The strength in Cisco's hyperconverged infrastructure product, HyperFlex, suggests demand is favorable for Nutanix, he added. Suppiger, who views Cisco shares as fairly valued, keeps a Market Perform rating on the stock.

T-Mobile net add beat signals continued subscriber momentum, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Brett Feldman notes that T-Mobile released its preliminary Q4 results, with postpaid phone net adds of 1.02M beating his estimate of 950k and consensus of 829k, and postpaid phone churn of 0.99% beating his estimate of 1.08% and consensus of 1.04%. This is the first time that T-Mobile has reported postpaid phone churn below 1.0% and the first quarter in which postpaid phone net adds have exceeded 1M since Q4 of 2014, he points out. Feldman believes the net adds beat signals continued wireless sector subscriber momentum.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Verizon to Equal Weight, says good news priced in
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Simon Flannery downgraded Verizon to Equal Weight from Overweight, as he contends that the stock's 11% year-to-date advance prices in the company's good news, including its $4B free cash flow improvement this year. While Verizon has actively marketed itself as the first carrier to 5G, this may spur higher spending than currently estimated by consensus, said Flannery. He believes carriers could spend up to $40B on wireless spectrum over the next three years, with Verizon alone spending up to $18B, the analyst added. Additionally, he sees risk of an increased competitive environment. Flannery maintains a $58 price target on Verizon shares.

Citi analyst Michael Rollins says Verizon's "strong" postpaid phone net additions for Q4 in a measured promotional environment bode well for the company's sales growth and cash flow as well as the broader wireless category. The analyst remains a buyer of Verizon shares as he sees further upside from better wireless performance, cost cutting and 5G.

Verizon 5G rollout offset by saturated, competitive market, says Tigress
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth reiterated a Neutral rating on Verizon, noting that the long-term opportunity of its 5G rollout, which it continues to invest in upgrading and expanding, is offset by "headwinds of a highly saturated and competitive market," as well as an ongoing decline in Verizon Fios subscribers. Feinseth does believe, however, that Verizon's above-average dividend and size advantage could provide an "attractive investment opportunity at some point in the near future."

Bank of America (BAC) and Morgan Stanley (MS) were downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette. 3. Mosaic (MOS) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying there are signs of increased phosphate exports from China, which have the potential to loosen the supply/demand balance in phosphate in 2019, leading to a weaker phosphate price dynamic. 4. Verizon (VZ) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Simon Flannery saying he contends that the stock's 11% year-to-date advance prices in the company's good news, including its $4B free cash flow improvement this year. 5. Fluor (FLR) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jerry Revich saying Fluor management noted that it was underbid on a major U.S. liquefied natural gas project that the analyst expected to be a catalyst in 2019.
