eMarketer revises upward estimates for Amazon's ad business, WSJ reports

Research firm eMarketer has revised upward its estimates for Amazon's (AMZN) U.S. ad revenue, partly due to third-party data that indicates advertising offers more of Amazon's revenue than thought, projecting 2017 ad revenue totaled $3.3B, up from its previous estimate of $1.9B in September, the Wall Street Journal's Alexandra Bruell reports, citing eMarketer. Amazon's ad revenue is expected to rise to $15B in 2020, or just below 10% of the digital ad market share in the U.S., from $11.3B in 2019 and an 8.8% share and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) are expected to continue to dominate the digital ad space, with a combined $89B in ad revenue in the U.S. in 2020.

Shopify price target raised to $212 from $190 at Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Mark Zgutowicz raised his price target on Shopify (SHOP) shares to $212 from $190 following the company's Q4 report, stating that large DTC direct-to-consumer companies are leveraging Shopify's platform to take "back ownership of their brands, largely from Amazon." Though "the stock may appear optically expensive," he still sees good value, added Zgutowicz, who keeps a Buy rating on Shopify shares.

JPMorgan cuts XPO Logistics target to $78, removes from Focus List
JPMorgan analyst Brian Ossenbeck lowered his price target for XPO Logistics (XPO) to $78 from $84 and removed the stock from his firm's Analyst Focus List following the company's Q4 results. The analyst expects XPO shares will be under pressure as the market digests a second guidance cut in as many months from "persistent uncertainty" in Europe combined with the recent loss of a large customer. Ossenbeck believes the shipper that is paring down its parcel injection, brokerage, last mile, and logistics activity with XPO is Amazon (AMZN). The market will interpret the XPO contract loss as Amazon taking capacity in-house which is negative for FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS), the analyst tells investors in a research note. He lowered his price target for XPO but keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

Morgan Stanley downgrades XPO Logistics, says M&A 'off the table'
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker downgraded XPO Logistics (XPO) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $71 from $116, stating that the company's 2019 guidance and sudden loss of its largest customer with virtually no notice has raised questions on forward visibility. M&A potential had made it his top pick previously, but now M&A is "off the table," said Shanker, who thinks confidence in the company's near-term trajectory may take time to recover. The analyst, who did not name the customer that he believes XPO recently lost, added he believes the customer aggressively insourcing its business away from XPO has "a significant negative read-across to other companies in the sector that are exposed to the same customer," particularly UPS (UPS), FedEx (FDX) and C.H. Robinson (CHRW). Other analysts have speculated that Amazon (AMZN) was the large customer lost by XPO.

XPO Logistics investment 'going to require more time and faith,' says Stifel
Stifel analyst J. Bruce Chan said XPO Logistics (XPO) had "a challenging quarter, to say the least," given the loss of its largest customer, which he believes to be Amazon (AMZN), and other headwinds on multiple fronts. A reduction in Amazon outsourcing was "probably inevitable," but the timing and magnitude of the hit was surprising, Chan tells investors. Management has also pivoted away from M&A after promising one or two major deals, added the analyst, who still believes in XPO's long-term outlook but said "the path there is now going to require more time and faith." Chan keeps a Buy rating on XPO shares but lowered his price target on the stock to $86 from $98.

RBC Capital sees Google data centers news as positive for AMD, Nvidia
RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves sees news of Google (GOOG; GOOGL) planning to spend about $13B to build new data centers in Nevada, Ohio, Texas and Nebraska along with additional expansion plans for the Virginia and NY City campuses as an incremental positive for AMD (AMD), Nvidia (NVDA), Arista Networks (ANET) and the Semi-cap equipment group, including Lam Research (LRCX), ASML (ASML), and Applied Materials (AMAT). One of the material concerns over the past few months has been hyperscale spending and this announcement should help quell fears surrounding a weaker spending environment, he contends.

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.

SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali lowered his price target on Alphabet to $1,350 after its "mixed" Q4 results that featured a "strong top line" and lower margins driven by rising expenses. 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".

BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon lowered his price target on Alphabet to $1,100 and kept his Market Perform rating after its Q4 results, saying the company's margins are trending lower as its revenue mix shifts to lower-margin businesses. 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.

He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

JPMorgan keeps Overweight on Alphabet but continues to prefer other FANGs
Alphabet's (GOOG) Q4 "continues to prove challenging on the bottom line" as the company now had a string of lighter than expected Q4's in terms of operating income and margins, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth tells investors in a post-earnings research note. While the quarter is seasonally strong for advertising, it also comes with higher content costs for YouTube, more marketing spending, and a spike in low-margin hardware, says the analyst. Overall, though, Anmuth believes Alphabet continues to execute well as evidenced by both the acceleration and long-term stability in its sales growth. He maintains an Overweight rating on the shares, but prefers other FANG names Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and Netflix (NFLX) to Google. The analyst lowered his price target for the latter to $1,250 from $1,270.

The analyst further states that the management has warned about more slowdowns coming in 2019, even as the company pivots to support new applications. With Messenger and WhatApp platforms having reached critical mass of users to start to get monetized, Bonner also raises his FY19 EPS view to $9.17 from $8.75.
