EU officially approves new Copyright Directive reform aimed at Facebook, Google

The Council of the European Union has approved the new Copyright Directive which "will bring concrete benefits to citizens, the creative sectors, the press, researchers, educators, and cultural heritage institutions," the European Commission said in a statement. It added that "The reform will adapt copyright rules to today's world, where music streaming services, video-on-demand platforms, news aggregators and user-uploaded-content platforms have become the main gateways to access creative works and press articles. It was proposed by the Commission in September 2016 and voted by the European Parliament in March 2019." European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said: "With today's agreement, we are making copyright rules fit for the digital age. Europe will now have clear rules that guarantee fair remuneration for creators, strong rights for users and responsibility for platforms. When it comes to completing Europe's digital single market, the copyright reform is the missing piece of the puzzle." The new Directive will "boost high-quality journalism in the EU and offer better protection for European authors and performers. Users will benefit from the new rules, which will allow them to upload copyright protected content on platforms legally. Moreover, they will benefit from enhanced safeguards linked to the freedom of expression when they upload videos that contain rights holders' content, i.e. in memes or parodies."

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.

Baird boosts Shopify target to $208 from $188 after 'positive' checks
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian raised his price target for Shopify (SHOP) to $208 from $188 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares following "positive" channel checks. The stock closed yesterday down 5% to $194.75 following a cautious research report from short-seller Citron Research. Channel checks suggest Shopify continues to consolidate share, despite intensifying competitive concerns from Adobe (ABDE), Facebook/Instagram (FB), Microsoft (MSFT), Salesforce (CRM) and Square (SQ), Sebastian tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes it will "take years and significant investment for others to catch up." Further, enterprise, international and merchant services offer incremental growth potential for Shopify, says the analyst. While not in "pound the table" territory, investors should opportunistically add or build to positions in the name on pullbacks, contends Sebastian.

Facebook price target raised to $195 on Stories monetization at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said he is bullish on Instagram's commerce opportunity, which he believes could add $4B or more to North America ad revenue by 2021, but that developing a stronger payments offering to capitalize will take some time. Monetizing Stories "took time too," said Nowak, who added that his agency conversations on Stories pricing and ROI have been positive and he believes Stories are monetizing now. He raised his FY19 revenue and EPS estimates by 1% each, increased his price target on Facebook shares to $195 from $190 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Piper's 8,000 teen survey shows Apple brand dominance 'well intact'
Of the 8,000 teens surveyed by Piper Jaffray, 83% have Apple's (AAPL) iPhone, the highest percentage seen in the semi-annual survey, analyst Michael Olson, tells investors in a research note. The iPhone may have room to move higher, however, with 86% of teens anticipating their next phone to be an iPhone, tied for the highest ever surveyed, Olson writes. He notes that Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Android was the runner up with 9%, down from 10% in the fall survey. Further, the Apple Watch was the top smartwatch among teens, garnering 20% share, with the Samsung Gear next on the list at 2%, the analyst points out. Olson views the survey data as a sign that Apple's place as the dominant device brand among teens "remains well intact." He reiterates an Overweight rating on Apple shares with a $201 price target.

Apple healthcare opportunity being underappreciated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, in collaboration with the firm's healthcare and tech teams, said she sees Apple "creating the building blocks of another ecosystem like the App Store" but in healthcare, armed with the Apple Watch and the iPhone. While she believes investors are aware of Apple's healthcare efforts, Huberty thinks they "may be missing the big picture and underappreciating the magnitude of the opportunity" she stated in her healthcare deep dive report. Huberty noted that the firm's recent survey of 30 meeting participants, three-quarters of them C-level executives from leading healthcare and technology companies, showed that they see Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOGL) and Apple as the technology companies that will have the largest impact on healthcare over the next five years, but in that ranking she thinks they are believe they are underestimating Apple. Huberty, who sees healthcare as a $15B-$313B revenue opportunity for Apple by 2027, keeps an Overweight rating on the iPhone maker's shares.

MongoDB partnership with Google a positive development, says William Blair
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) announced yesterday at its annual Cloud Next developer conference a slew of partnerships with open source database and analytics vendors, including MongoDB (MDB), William Blair analyst Jason Ader tells investors in a research note. Instead of competing with these vendors, like its main rival Amazon Web Services (AMZN) has generally chosen to do, Google is deepening integrations with these open source solutions in an effort to simplify customer adoption of them through the Google Cloud Platform, says Ader. He believes that although Google Cloud Platform is a "distant third" in market share to AWS and Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure, the news is a positive development for MongoDB "that could begin to bring more attention to and turn the tide against open source strip mining." Ader reiterates an Outperform rating on MongoDB shares.

Alphabet price target raised to $1,420 from $1,390 at Cowen
Cowen analyst John Blackledge maintained an Outperform rating on Alphabet and lifted his price target to $1,420 from $1,390 ahead of the company's Q1 results on April 29. In a research note to investors, Blackledge says he estimates a slight reported topline growth deceleration for Q1 vs. last year and further core Google operating margin compression. He sees shares likely rising off the print with a small revenue beat and margin upside from faster TAC cost deceleration and possibly lower than expected R&D costs.
