AMD says Radeon GPUs being used for Google Stadia platform

AMD (AMD) announced that Google (GOOGL) selected custom AMD Radeon datacenter GPUs for its Vulkan and Linux-based Google Stadia. Google announced the platform today at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Calif. AMD also is supporting Google with its software development tools and Linux-based, open-source Vulkan driver to "help game developers optimize future titles to run on the new GPU-powered platform," AMD stated. "By combining our gaming DNA and datacenter technology leadership with a long-standing commitment to open platforms, AMD provides unique technologies and expertise to enable world-class cloud gaming experiences. AMD is delighted to work with Google in its effort to bring amazing gaming experiences to legions of gamers around the world with the reliability and no-compromises performance they expect," said Ogi Brkic, corporate VP and general manager of the Datacenter GPU Business Unit at AMD.

Any AMD weakness on Mubadala transactions a buying opportunity, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Kevin Cassidy noted that Mubadala Investment Company announced that they sold a block of 34.9M AMD shares, which represents about 3.5% of the outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis, and also announced their intent to exercise 75M AMD warrants into common equity shares. As a result, Mubadala will own about 6.9% of outstanding AMD shares, said Cassidy, who views the announcement as normal investment transactions for the group. He recommends investors use any AMD share weakness to build a long position and keeps a Buy rating and $34 price target on the stock.

Credit Suisse trims AMD earnings estimates after Mubadala transaction
Credit Suisse analyst John Pitzer trimmed his 2019 earnings per share estimate for AMD to 59c from 60c and 2020 estimate to 78c from 80c to reflect a higher share count after Mubadala sold 34.9M shares and announced its intent to exercise 75M warrants at $5.98 into common equity shares. Importantly, around 55M of the 75M shares from the warrants were already embedded in AMD's Q1 and 2019 diluted shares outstanding guidance, Pitzer tells investors in a research note. As such, he does not view today's transaction as meaningful either to AMD's financial model or underlying investment narrative. However, the analyst continues to view AMD's 2019 guidance as "optically aggressive" since it implies the fastest quarter-over-quarter growth in the company's history. Pitzer keeps a Neutral rating on AMD. The stock in afternoon trading is down 4%, or 99c, to $23.14.

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.

Nvidia price target raised to $190 from $170 at Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Hans Mosesmann raised his price target for Nvidia (NVDA) to $190 and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares following the company's Q4 results. The "crypto mess" is finally bottoming in the April quarter and management sees a "material snap-back" starting in fiscal Q2 and the rest of the year, Mosesmann tells investors in a post-earnings research note titled "Crypto Bottoming - Aggressive Snapback - Stock Works for LT Investors." However, amid Datacenter and Gaming industry uncertainty, the analyst believes management is "needlessly being aggressive" with its outlook. He points out that, though, that both Intel (INTC) and AMD (AMD) are also being aggressive for their own year guides. Mosesmann remains a long-term bull on the Nvidia story and believes new traction in inferencing and enterprise market segments will sustain high growth rates in Datacenter for years to come.

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.

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.

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.
