Facebook rolls out WhatsApp Business for iOS

Facebook's (FB) WhatsApp said in a blog post that it is introducing the WhatsApp Business app for iOS (AAPL). Like the Android (GOOG) version - which over the last year has been adopted by millions of businesses around the world - the WhatsApp Business app for iOS will be free to download from the Apple App Store and will include features to help small businesses and customers communicate. The WhatsApp Business app is available today and free to download from the App Store in Brazil, Germany, Indonesia, India, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S. The app will be rolling out around the world in the coming weeks.

Buy
Facebook break-up unlikely, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould kept his Buy rating and $200 price target on Facebook after holding a call with a "leading Washington expert on antitrust and a former general counsel to the Senate Antitrust Committee, Seth Bloom". The analyst says the expert suggested that the company may have to pay a "major fine" of up to $5B to resolve the alleged violation of its 2011 consent decree and the regulators may ask for some changes in management such as requesting that CEO Zuckerberg resigns from his post as Chairman. However, Gould believes that proving anti-competitive behavior allowing the government to break up Facebook would be difficult. The analyst maintains his view that the shares are "attractively priced", particularly given the value of monetization from its WhatsApp and Messenger platforms.

Guggenheim downgrades Roku on increasing competition from Apple, Amazon
Guggenheim analyst Michael Morris downgraded Roku (ROKU) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $72 from $77. The stock closed yesterday down 3%, or $2.04, to $68.60. Morris this morning also upgraded Facebook (FB) to Buy from Neutral with a $200 price target. Apple's (AAPL) video product unveiled on March 25 represents an additional risk to Roku's active user base, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Further, Amazon's (AMZN) and Viacom's (VIAB) greater pushes into advertising video on demand are also increasing competition on Roku, Morris contends. He adds that Roku CFO Steve Louden's sale of 100,000 shares has also "shaken" his confidence in the stock. Nonetheless, the analyst's view of the "strong" secular streaming and targeted video advertising tailwinds that the company is positioned to benefit from is unchanged.

Guggenheim upgrades Facebook to Buy with $200 price target
Guggenheim analyst Michael Morris upgraded Facebook to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $200 from $175. The social media giant closed yesterday down 66c to $173.54. Investors will continue to gain comfort with the incremental financial risk created by Facebook's content and privacy concerns, Morris tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes the company's usage trends have remained "solid" and sees the potential for commerce and messaging monetization opportunities "as attractively priced within shares." Morris expects Facebook shares to outperform his broader Media & Entertainment coverage given its "above-average growth rate at a modest premium to overall market valuation."

Qualcomm CFO exit immaterial, says Argus
Argus analyst Jim Kelleher is keeping his Buy rating and $85 price target on Qualcomm (QCOM), saying the latest announcement that its CFO George Davis is stepping down to join Intel (INTC) is immaterial and a "side show". The analyst sees the real "main event" risk with the company's upcoming trial this month in a dispute with Apple (AAPL), which has alleged that Qualcomm's licensing model is illegal. Kelleher contends however that Qualcomm's licensing model has "repeatedly been validated" and the company has "withstood multiple legal challenges over the past two decades".

Apple's iPhone may be 'already at replacement', says UBS
UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri kept his Buy rating and $215 price target on Apple (AAPL), saying that while his "field work" suggests that the company may not be able to ship a 5G iPhone in 2020 because Intel (INTC) may not be "ready with a single chip backward compatible 5G modem", he sees iPhones as being "already at replacement". The analyst adds that Intel should or will discontinue or sell its modem operations, and that the buyer could be Apple.

Apple App Store trends appear stable, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted that Sensor Tower estimates that March quarter App Store revenue was $3.7B, up 15% year-over-year, which is a 1 point deceleration from revised December quarter year-over-year growth of 16%. Keeping the rest of her Apple Services forecasts unchanged and using the Sensor Tower data would imply March quarter Services revenue of $11.5B, which Huberty said is slightly below her current $11.6B estimate but largely in-line with consensus. The analyst, who said she is modeling an acceleration in Services growth in the second half and FY20 as Apple ramps its recently announced Service launches, keeps an Overweight rating on Apple.

Local ad survey positive for Google and Facebook, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analysts led by Benjamin Swinburne and Brian Nowak said the firm's annual local ad survey showed that expectations to grow marketing budgets remained robust. The survey results were positive for Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB), as Google's search and Instagram stood out as having strong year-over-year increases in the number of small and medium businesses pointing to each as providing "the highest ROI," the analysts noted. Twitter (TWTR) and Yelp (YELP) both fell in terms of usage by local advertisers, the analysts also noted. Outdoor continues to slowly pick up budget share, according to the survey, which makes the analysts incrementally positive on Lamar Advertising (LAMR) and Outfront Media (OUT), they added.

FTC officials seem to spotlight Facebook, Amazon for scrutiny, says Cowen
After FTC Chairman Joe Simons and Competition Bureau Director Bruce Hoffman spoke at the American Bar Association's annual antitrust conference on Friday, Cowen analyst Paul Gallant said his read of some of Simons' comments on "consummated mergers" is that they seem directed toward Facebook (FB) deals like Instagram and Whatsapp and/or Google's (GOOGL) past ad tech acquisitions. Hoffman "also seemed to lean forward on tech," said Gallant, who sees some of Hoffman's comments on a prior ruling about American Express (AXP) as making Amazon (AMZN) more of an antitrust target than he expected. The analyst also noted that Sarah Oxenham-Allen, Chair of the State Attorney Generals Task Force on Antitrust, spoke at the event and he sees her comments as underscoring that state AGs are a "legitimate threat" on antitrust and privacy for Facebook and Google.

Chrome changes overblown, buying opportunity for Rubicon, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Jason Kreyer believes the recent pullback in Rubicon Project (RUBI) shares creates a buying opportunity. Shares were down nearly 10% last week following rumors that Google (GOOG) could make privacy changes to its Chrome browser, he notes. The analyst does not anticipate this creating any fundamental headwinds for Rubicon Project and believes management's focus on releasing a suite of tools for publishers positions the company for further competitive gains. He reiterates a Buy rating and $8 price target on Rubicon's shares.

Cowen says latest U.S. survey shows Netflix maintains living room lead
Cowen analyst John Blackledge said he expect solid results from Netflix (NFLX) when the company reports Q1 earnings on April 16, noting that the company's Original programming hours are up 34% year-over-year, which he views as a tailwind. The firm's monthly recurring proprietary survey of 2,500 U.S. consumers again highlighted Netflix's "leadership in the living room," particularly among Millennials, said Blackledge. When asked which platforms they use most often to view video content on TV, Netflix held the top position with 26.2% of total survey respondents, followed by basic cable, broadcast television and Google's (GOOGL) YouTube, noted Blackledge. He keeps an Outperform rating and $455 price target on Netflix shares.
