Sector Weight
Worldpay downgraded to Sector Weight after Fiserv deal at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck downgraded Worldpay (WP) to Sector Weight from Overweight after the company and FIS (FIS) announced a deal, quickly adding another mega-deal in the wake of Fiserv (FISV)-First Data (FDC) and Global Payments (GPN)-Heartland Payment Systems. The analyst thinks this transaction is likely to expand the M&A discussion around Global Payments, TSYS (TSS), EVO Payments (EVOP), and i3 Verticals (IIIV) and sees paths to accretion should management teams further endorse a scale strategy. Future processing competition could increase among Global Payments, TSYS, First Data, and JPMorgan (JPM), but it remains too early to gauge, he contends.

Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette downgraded Worldpay (WP) to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that he does not foresee regulatory challenges to the acquisition of the company by FIS (FIS). Faucette also said that the FIS/Worldpay and Fiserv (FISV)/First Data (FDC) deals make him incrementally more positive on Global Payments (GPN), which he could see as either a potential acquirer or takeover candidate.

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.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Amazon.com (AMZN) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Edward Yruma saying Amazon is taking a number of operational moves to improve profitability in core retail, which could drive mid-term earnings above current consensus estimates. 2. AT&T (T) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Frank Louthan saying AT&T shares trade at a relative discount and expects shares to be driven by positive earnings growth combined with a strong de-levering story. 3. Colfax (CFX) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Julian Mitchell saying he views the company's turnaround story as underappreciated. 4. Rent-A-Center (RCII) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Budd Bugatch citing the trial win regarding the terminated buyout with Vintage Capital and a strong fundamental outlook for the upgrade. 5. Global Net Lease (GNL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Bryan Maher citing the stock's attractive relative valuation as well as management's acquisition "acumen" for the upgrade to Buy.

Google's Stadia announcement potentially disruptive, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Evan Wingren attended Google's (GOOG; GOOGL) keynote at Game Developer's Conference, where it announced a new video game streaming service, new gaming hardware, and intentions to make games. The analyst believes the announcement has potential to be disruptive if Google executes well on the service, and sees it as mostly positive for video game publishers in the near and long term as it increases global access, removes value added by hardware, and increases value of key content. Google's ambitions to make games join other distributors like Sony (SNE), Microsoft (MSFT), and Amazon (AMZN), and could provide some incremental competition for time in the medium to long term, Wingren contends.

Outperform
Amazon.com initiated with an Outperform at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Greg Melich initiated co-coverage of Amazon.com with the firm's Internet Team, led by Anthony DiClemente. They have an Outperform rating and $1,965 base case price target on the stock, citing the view that the company will continue to change "the way we shop and live." While the company's percentage growth might slow, its dollar growth and profitability are improving, Melich noted.
