Roku price target raised to $85 from $65 at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin raised her price target on Roku (ROKU) to $85 and kept her Buy rating, saying its 14% stock price decline yesterday was "overdone" while maintaining her view of the company as the "top pick for 2019". The analyst cites the company's position of an "arms dealer", aggregating 5K 3rd party streaming video apps into one platform. She also believes that "every new streaming service", including the upcoming offerings from Disney (DIS), AT&T (T) and Apple (AAPL) will sign contracts allowing for viewing on Roku device, adding that "TV advertisers" will have to follow the viewers since some 10M Roku users have no linear TV access. Moreover, Martin contends that Roku is in position to expand internationally or possibly be acquired.

Apple initiated with an Outperform at Cowen
Cowen analyst Krish Sankar initiated Apple with an Outperform rating and $220 price target, stating that his long term investment thesis hinges on the Services segment growing and Apple massively monetizing its installed base of products. Sankar also thinks increasing recurring revenues should drive a higher multiple for Apple shares, he tells investors. He models iPhone units down 15% year-over-year in calendar 2019 to 175M units.

Morgan Stanley 'positively biased' on Apple's March quarter based on China signs
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty shared four reasons that she is "positively biased" on Apple's March quarter with two weeks to go: data showing that Apple gained share of the Chinese smartphone installed base year-over-year in January and February; the fact that February was the first month in half a year that her firm's Asia team didn't cut their iPhone builds forecast; the fact that this is the first time that her March and June quarter iPhone forecasts are actually below her Asia Hardware team's build forecast; and the fact that replacement cycles have converged with PCs. Huberty, who added that the XS Max is the most popular new iPhone model with users in China "contrary to expectations," keeps an Overweight rating and $197 price target on Apple shares.

Buckingham downgrades Netflix to Neutral amid 'investor angst' over Disney+
As previously reported, Buckingham analyst Matthew Harrigan downgraded Netflix (NFLX) to Neutral from Buy, citing the stock's sensitivity to any market pullback, "investor angst" regarding what he calls "increasingly credible" competition from the Disney+ (DIS) streaming service and his concerns that his model for Netflix's long-term global membership growth may be optimistic given the rising competition. He also cites "further management flux" following the departure of the company's Chief Marketing Officer. Harrigan keeps a $382 price target on Netflix shares.

Loop Capital downgrades Roku to Sell from Hold on 'excessive' valuation
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould downgraded Roku (ROKU) to Sell from Hold with an unchanged price target of $45. The stock closed yesterday down 5%, or $3.40, to $70.72 and is trading down another 4% to $68.03 in the premarket. Macquarie this morning also downgraded Roku. Gould says that while he recognizes stocks "can go from expensive to more expensive," he can no longer justify a Hold rating on Roku at this "excessive valuation." This view is corroborated by increased insider selling and the company filing to sell stock, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Roku has appreciated 131% since December 31, which compares with 33% for Netflix (NFLX) and 11% for the S&P 500 Index, Gould points out. Further, he believes Roku is facing "substantial potential competition."

GameStop (GME) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Curtis Nagle citing expectations for a deterioration in fundamentals. 3. Exxon Mobil (XOM) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Jason Gabelman saying the company is shifting to a counter-cyclical investment stage, which may pay dividends long-term but he does not believe investors are willing to wait for results. 4. Etsy (ETSY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Marvin Fong saying the current stock price embeds a "fair amount of future improvement," which yields a risk/reward that is balanced. 5. National Beverage (FIZZ) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Guggenheim with analyst Laurent Grandet saying he "drastically reduced" his LaCroix sales growth expectations and cut his gross margin and EPS estimates accordingly following the company's quarterly report.

DA Davidson analyst Rishi Jaluria raised his price target on MongoDB (MDB) after its "strong beat and raise quarter" that was highlighted by accelerating growth and its Atlas data source reaching 32% of revenue. The analyst notes that the outperformance also countered concerns about Amazon's (AMZN) AWS and Red Hat (RHT), which he sees as "overblown". Jaluria is keeping his Neutral rating on MongoDB in spite of the strong quarter however, saying its shares are "fully valued".

KeyBanc upgrades Amazon to Overweight on improving retail profitability
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma upgraded Amazon.com to Overweight from Sector Weight with a price target of $2,100. The stock in premarket trading is up $22.78 to $1,709.00. Amazon is taking a number of operational moves to improve profitability in core retail, which could drive mid-term earnings above current consensus estimates, Yruma tells investors in a research note. He believes Amazon is "pivoting to a company with accelerating profitability." And in addition to $5B in incremental retail profitability, growth and margins remain "very strong" in the combined Web Services and advertising businesses, says the analyst. Amazon's profits over the next three years could inflect, driven by improving retail margin expansion coupled with the mix shift to higher margin AWS and Advertising segments that combined could top $100B by 2022, Yruma contends.

Roku downgraded to Neutral after 160% rally off lows at Macquarie
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Tim Nollen downgraded Roku to Neutral from Outperform following a 162% rise in the stock from its lows since Christmas. He sees the stock's current valuation as full given the rising competition in the ad-supported video on-demand, or AVOD, area from services such as Viacom's (VIAB) Pluto TV, Amazon's (AMZN) ad-supported channels and a potential service expected to be announced by Apple (AAPL) on March 25. Nollen raised his price target on Roku shares to $66 from $57.
