California governor eyes new data dividend, San Diego Union-Tribune says

In his State of the State speech, California governor Gavin Newsom said he asked his team to develop a proposal for a new data dividend for California, according to a copy of the speech provided by the San Diego Union Tribune. The governor said that the move was inspired by the idea that the state's consumers should be able to share in the wealth that is created from their data, according to the Union Tribune. "California is proud to be home to technology companies determined to change the world. But companies that make billions of dollars collecting, curating and monetizing our personal data have a duty to protect it," Newsom said. "Consumers have a right to know and control how their data is being used." Major players in the tech space include Amazon (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT), Twitter (TWTR), Apple (AAPL), IBM (IBM), Intel (INTC), Facebook (FB), and Oracle (ORCL). Reference Link

PayPal acceptance growth still best of any digital wallet, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said the most common question he has gotten for the past several weeks on PayPal (PYPL) has been, "Why is the stock underperforming so much since the beginning of 2019?" He believes PayPal's recent plateauing probably has more to do with other stocks than anything stock-specific, stating that Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA) "really have arguably had their best buying opportunities in years" and he would not be surprised to see PayPal "tread water" until those two stocks retake their respective highs. Another common thread in talks has been increasing concern that other digital wallets from Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and others may be closing the acceptance gap, though he thinks that "speculation is flatly wrong." Dating back to March 2016, PayPal has had the fastest acceptance growth among all digital wallets, outpacing all the other wallets that he can reliably track, Faucette tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $99 price target on PayPal shares.

DA Davidson reiterates $60 target on Wayfair citing Amazon 'encroachment'
In a research earlier today titled "Encroachment Is a 5-Yard Penalty," DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte reiterated an Underperform rating on Wayfair with a $60 12-18 month price target. The stock in morning trading is up 1% to $120.89. Amazon.com (AMZN) announced yesterday that it was launching two private-label furniture brands in the U.K., Forte wrote to investors. The analyst sees the news as "yet another indication" of Amazon's intent to expand its efforts in the home category, including furniture. Yesterday's announcement follows Amazon's decision last December to lower third-party selling fees for the furniture category, the analyst points out. Forte views Amazon's efforts to ramp its sales in the home category as an increasing threat for Wayfair. Further, the analyst is monitoring the potential sale of Overstock's (OSTK) legacy home e-commerce business, as he thinks a sale to a large bricks and mortar retailer could also result in additional competition for Wayfair.

He believes NEMF's customers, which reportedly includes Amazon (AMZN), will be challenged to find capacity easily with other LTL carriers given the current tightness in the market.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,380 from $1,300 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley raised his price target for Alphabet to $1,380 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares following last night's Q4 results. Alphabet reported a mixed quarter, with Sites revenue excluding currency modestly ahead of estimates but disappointing operating income, weighed down in part by unusual compensation linked to Other Bets, Walmsley tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "Strong revs, miss on EBIT; thank u, next." On the positive side, the company reiterated optimism on its ability to sustain sales growth and the expectation that headcount growth would slow modestly in 2019 and capex growth would moderate significantly in 2019, adds the analyst.

Alphabet may need better transparency to see shares rise, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said Alphabet's Q4 report highlights the strength of the company's core and portfolio of assets, though it also reinforces how improved disclosure or transparency may be needed for "material share-price appreciation." A company-wide EBIT miss of 4% compared to consensus was due to a larger than expected Other Bets loss, said Nowak, who noted that he attributes the larger EBIT loss to Other Bets equity compensation programs that are tied to long-term value creation. He also reminded investors that these compensation rewards are tied to long-term asset values appreciating. Nowak, who believes it may take revisions or better disclosure for the market to appreciate that Other Bets are strong and appreciating in value, keeps an Overweight rating and $1,500 price target on Alphabet shares.

The analyst is keeping his Buy rating however, stating that the company's vore business of Search and especially YouTube are performing at "impressive growth levels', with added support coming from the scaling segments like Cloud, Play, and hardware and emerging ones like Waymo. Squali expects Alphabet to sustain its mid-teen growth over the next several years with a focus on incremental profit and free cash flows, making the stock "an attractive growth story at a compelling valuation".

The analyst adds that Alphabet's rising expenses related to "Other Bets" have become the latest variable challenging profitability that reinforces his cautious margins view. While he sees Alphabet's sum-of-the-parts valuation as attractive, Salmon contends that it is not yet sufficient to drive a bullish thesis.

Despite relatively unrestrained expense growth in the quarter, the analyst came away encouraged by management commentary indicating moderating headcount growth and a meaningful deceleration in CapEx growth in 2019. Coolbrith reiterates an Outperform rating and $1,300 price target on the shares.

Microsoft's key secular growth drivers sustained well in Q2, with an acceleration to 22% commercial bookings growth and Azure sustaining 76% growth, which comes in contrast to mounting investor concerns on weakening IT spending and negative data points from component suppliers, Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss tells investors. However, component shortages led to a weaker Windows OEM business, which reminds investors that "transactional risks remain in the Microsoft business," Weiss added.

Activision, Sonos, Netflix offer best strategic fits for Apple, says JPMorgan
Despite Apple (AAPL) itself offering no comments on the subject or giving any indication to investors of its intentions, potential acquisition targets for the company have been widely discussed in press reports on a regular basis, JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee tells investors in a research note. The speculation has included a wide range of industries, from automobile manufacturers, like Tesla (TSLA), to information platforms, like Twitter (TWTR), adds the analyst. He believes the speculation has likely in part been driven by the $130B of net cash on Apple's balance sheet. Chatterjee finds three industries to be of the most strategic value to Apple for potential deals: Video gaming, smart home speaker and video content. These areas provide potential growth opportunities to leverage Apple's services over a wider installed base, says the analyst. In video gaming, he sees Activision Blizzard (ATVI) as being the best strategic fit for Apple. In smart home speaker, Chatterjee believes Sonos (SONO) offers the best strategic of the names mentioned in the press. And in video content, the analyst views Netflix (NFLX) as the best strategic fit, although he "appreciates a combination is less likely as Netflix is unlikely to be a seller for a modest premium."

Piper storage survey positive for Pure Storage, Nutanix, NetApp
Piper Jaffray conducted its fiscal Q4 Storage Reseller Survey by collecting feedback from 28 resellers and distributors. While only five of 14 vendors had net positive results versus six of the 14 last quarter, the firm saw "strong results" for Pure Storage (PSTG), Rubrik, Nutanix (NTNX), Veeam and NetApp (NTAP), analyst Andrew Nowinski told investors earlier in a research note. Pure Storage also had the strongest pipeline heading into the April quarter, added the analyst. The company's results sharply improved in the survey, with 67% of resellers citing "Above Plan" results, the highest level seen in three years, says Nowinski. The stock in early trading is up 19c to $18.47. Of those surveyed by Piper, 36% of resellers said they saw a negative impact from the U.S. government shutdown, with Dell (DELL), HP/3PAR (HPQ) and IBM (IMB) the most impacted.

Underweight
Oracle initiated with an Underweight at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities analyst Dimitri Kallianiotis started Oracle with an Underweight rating and $45 price target as he believes that AI favors the dominant cloud providers in this "winner takes all" environment and thinks AI will reinforce the dominant position of the largest player in each market segment. This will exacerbate market share loss in applications at Oracle, driven by the decline in legacy on-premise solutions, Kallianiotis contends.
