U.S. state AGs signaling willingness to investigate Google, Facebook, WaPo says

Some of the most influential state attorneys general are signaling a willingness to investigate Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and other tech giants, according to The Washington Post's Tony Romm. Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry is quoted in the report as having said, "I think what we've found is that big tech has become too big, and that while we may have been asleep at the wheel, they were able to consolidate a tremendous amount of power," adding that Landry said "numerous bipartisan discussions" among Democrats and Republicans are happening about other areas where attorneys general can coordinate their attention on big tech. The report adds that states such as Arizona and Mississippi are taking aim at Google for the way it collects and monetizes web users' data. Reference Link

Arista Networks price target raised to $300 from $265 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said he has increased confidence in Arista Networks' (ANET) ability to beat consensus estimates as he believes Arista is likely to benefit from hyperscale customers' growth. Faucette explains that he sees Arista sales as most closely tied to hyperscale service revenue and he believes better than expected revenue at Microsoft (MSFT), Google (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) will lead to better than expected buying of Arista gear. Given that view and his confidence, Faucette raised his price target on Arista shares to $300 from $265 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

TripAdvisor downgraded to Underperform on weak 2019 start at Cowen
As reported previously, Cowen analyst Kevin Kopelman downgraded TripAdvisor (TRIP) to Underperform from Market Perform. The analyst cited a weak start to 2019, expectations for weaker usage, and worries about younger age demos using Google (GOOG). He expects profit growth to slow to single digits by 2020 and thinks the stock's multiple should now be more in line with peers. Kopelman lowered his price target to $40 from $50 on TripAdvisor shares.

Rosenblatt sees low odds Facebook would be forced to spin off Instagram
Though it is possible a new task force announced last week by the FTC may consider unwinding consummated M&A by internet companies, presumably including Facebook (FB) and Instagram, Rosenblatt analyst Mark Zgutowicz sees a low probability of such a forced spinoff for two primary reasons. First, spinning off Instagram would not necessarily make the social media market more competitive. Second, it may be hard to prove how such a theoretical breakup would better protect user privacy. In such a scenario, he sees potential for 13% downside to Facebook shares if the company were to be forced to spinout Instagram due to the added costs of running two separate companies. Zgutowicz said he remains an aggressive buyer of Facebook shares, despite the FTC task force that appears directed at mega cap tech companies including it, Google (GOOGL) and Amazon (AMZN), given the social media company's stable fundamentals and an accelerating earnings growth profile. Zgutowicz keeps a Buy rating and $212 price target on Facebook.

Departure of Chris Cox to weigh on Facebook shares, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth expects the departure of Chris Cox to weigh on Facebook shares in the near term, though he notes there is no change to his overall positive thesis on the name. Cox's departure is surprising given his expanded role overseeing strategy for the Facebook family of apps from nearly a year ago, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. In some ways, the timing "represents a clean break" given Facebook's recently announced shift to build out a privacy-focused social platform, but the company will now launch some major product initiatives without its "most valuable product person of the past several years," says the analyst. He keeps an Overweight rating on Facebook.

UPGRADE

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Wamsi Mohan saying he now sees "stability" of supply chain order cuts and a "large reversal of inventory overhang" in iPhones. He believes negative consensus estimates revisions for fiscal 2020 and 2021 have overshot to the downside and that the valuation, excluding Apple's cash position, is attractive. The analyst also raised his price target for the shares to $210 from $180. 2. Facebook (FB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet with analyst Mark Kelley saying Facebook's transition to Stories appears to be occurring more quickly than we expected. 3. FireEye (FEYE) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Sterling Auty saying the stock's year-to-date performance has been 23% below the group's coverage, and the stock is now trading at 3.7 times estimated fiscal 2019 revenue estimates. 4. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Brandon Oglenski raising his price target for the shares to $70 from $65. 5. AutoZone (AZO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Elizabeth Suzuki saying she does not think that the rally for auto parts stocks is over and she believes that AutoZone's valuation discount to the group should narrow as it grows its commercial business.

Facebook Coin could add $19B in sales by 2021, says Barclays
Any attempt by Facebook to build out revenue streams outside of Advertising, especially those that don't abuse user privacy, are likely to be very well received by shareholders, Barclays analyst Ross Sandler tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that Facebook "has a long history" in Payments dating back to the original FB Credits, which in 2012 represented ~16% of company revenue. If Facebook Coin proves successful in reinvigorating the company's micro-payment strategy for digital content distribution, it could add as much as $19B in additional revenue by 2021, Sandler says, citing his "upside case." His "base case," which he admits is "more conservative," has Facebook Coin adding an incremental $3B in revenue by 2021. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Facebook with a $210 price target.

Nomura upgrades Facebook to Buy with $215 target on faster Stories transition
Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley upgraded Facebook to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $215 from $172. The stock closed Friday up 47c to $169.60. Facebook's transition to Stories appears to be occurring more quickly than we expected, Kelley tells investors in a research note titled "A New Story to Tell." As such, the analyst says his concerns over engagement trends at core Facebook have eased. Given management's original commentary that operating margins would trend towards the mid-30% range over "the next several years," and considering guidance for 2019 expense growth essentially equates to 35%-36% operating margins right out of the gate, the expense growth outlook may be tempered as we progress throughout the year, says Kelley. Further, he continues to believe that increased regulation will be a net positive for large platforms like Facebook. The analyst finds the stock attractively valued at current levels.
