Apple CEO urges China to keep opening for the global economy, Reuters reports

Apple CEO Tim Cook urged China to open up and said the future would depend on global collaboration as the United States and China continued its trade dispute, Reuters' Brenda Goh reports, citing comments made by Cook. "We encourage China to continue to open up, we see that as essential, not only for China to reach its full potential, but for the global economy to thrive," said the CEO, whose remarks come as Apple manages sinking sales in China due to a contracting smartphone market, rising pressure from Chinese competitors and slowing upgrade cycles.

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 Strong Buy from Buy at Needham with analyst Laura Martin stating that Apple has five types of "network effects," including the strongest type, namely hardware-based direct network effects. 2. Qorvo (QRVO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari saying he's beginning to see early signs of smartphone unit stabilization with channel checks indicating near-term upside in China will offset "marginal weakness" at Apple. 3. Arista Networks (ANET) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Rod Hall seeing "significant upside potential" to consensus expectations driven by Arista's expansion into campus switching. 4. ConocoPhillips (COP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Blake Fernandez attributing the stock's year-to-date underperformance to concern over major project spending risk, which he believes is embedded in current valuation levels. 5. Diplomat Pharmacy (DPLO) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst John Ransom saying the 56% decline in shares since the February earnings delay provides a valuation that could be attractive to a strategic buyer. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Apple event may be negative for Netflix, positive for Lions Gate, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton previews Apple's (AAPL) media event scheduled for March 25th, saying the company is likely to unveil a Video Service. The analyst believes that an Apple OTT service could be a positive for Lions Gate (LGF.B) given the participation of the Starz networks but negative for Netflix (NFLX) "if Apple can offer compelling content bundles at compelling prices with a compelling UI and ubiquitous access". Thornton adds that Apple's bundling of its Music with video subscriptions and news subscriptions may be a negative for Spotify (SPOT) and a "modest incremental negative" for Roku (ROKU) if Apple's service app is not on its service.

JPMorgan upgrades Lumentum to Overweight on iPhone volume stabilization
JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee upgraded Lumentum Holdings (LITE) to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $65 from $50. The stock closed yesterday up $2.44, of 5%, to $52.10. The analyst sees a "solid" outlook for the company's telecom business amid "strong" growth led by 5G investments and upside to synergy targets relative to recent acquisition of Oclaro. Further, he sees limited downside risk relative to volume expectations for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone, which he notes has been a "key driver of sentiment on the shares." Stabilization of its iPhone volume outlook should drive focus back to the "strong" fundamentals in Lumentum's primary telecom business, Chatterjee tells investors in a research note.

Apple streaming service timing, robustness key details, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said she expects next Monday's special event from Apple to be focused on new Services launches, specifically a streaming video on demand service and likely a paid subscription news and magazine service. Huberty believes that besides the launch of an Apple Media bundle, which she would view as the most bullish potential announcement, the inclusion of video content from other programmers would be a positive and the launch timing and robustness of the offerings are the most important details to watch. A meaningful delay in the launch of original video content could hamper customer adoption and pricing at or above market for a stand-alone streaming video service could also slow adoption, said Huberty, who has an Overweight rating on Apple shares.
