In-the-money call buyer in Ericsson ahead of earnings

In-the-money call buyer in Ericsson ahead of earnings. With shares flat at $9.65, 5K Apr 9s trade 80c with bid-ask 70 to 80c. Adding the 2.3K open at that line, the call buy will create the second largest open interest in the name - second to the 8.8K open at the Apr 10 strike, which also expire in two days. The bullish short-term option play comes ahead of the company's profit report tomorrow morning. Shares added 4.2% to $8.88 on 1/25/19 after the last report and have since tacked on another 8.7%.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Humana (HUM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor saying the upgrade reflects the "significant" recent pullback in the shares, Humana's accelerating market share gains, its "attractive" Medicare Advantage exposure, and "conservative" balance sheet. 2. Ericsson (ERIC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James. 3. Patterson-UTI (PTEN) and Halliburton (HAL) were upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale. 4. PPG (PPG) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Arun Viswanathan citing the potential tailwind coming from more favorable pricing in raw materials like oil and titanium dioxide. 5. Synovus (SNV) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Garrett Holland saying core trends should remain solid with better relative loan growth, rising capital return and further efficiency improvement. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Ericsson restructuring of BSS a 'slight positive' for Amdocs, says JPMorgan
After Ericsson (ERIC) announced that it will be taking about $685M in restructuring charges in the fourth quarter to reshape its Business Support System, or BSS, business, JPMorgan analyst Jackson Ader called the news a "slight positive" for Amdocs (DOX). Ericsson's announcement gives more credence to Amdocs' contention that it has competed well against the equipment providers in the BSS space, it shows that the BSS market is strategic enough to warrant increased focus, and it likely gives Amdocs a leg up in the early stages of the 5G rollout, Ader tells investors. He maintains a Neutral rating on Amdocs shares.

Nokia a top pick for 'steadily moving forward' 5G market, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Michael Genovese kept his Buy rating and $8 price target on Nokia (NOK), maintaining his view of the company as the "top pick for 5G", which he sees as "steadily moving forward". The analyst notes that the stock outperformed the Nasdaq by 10% over the past 6 months but underperformed the index by 8% over the past 3 months on investors perceptions that the rollout is proceeding slowly. Genovese adds that the most recent headwinds of wrongdoing in the company's Alcatel-Lucent transactions are unlikely to be material, and maintains that Nokia should be favored over Ericson (ERIC) in 5G because of its "greater exposure to IP Routing, Optical and Wireline".

Goldman sees risks to Nokia estimates, downgrades shares to Sell
Goldman Sachs analyst Alexander Duval downgraded Nokia (NOK) to Sell from Neutral and cut his price target for the shares to $5.50 from $6.40. Consensus estimates have further downside as analysts factor in lower Networks revenues, a more conservative margin trajectory and "more muted" growth in the Nokia's "highly profitable" Patents business, Duval tells investors in a research note. The analyst reduced his Networks growth rate on "subseasonal" growth in the first half of 2019 as well as management's "cautious" statements. Duval says these contrast with his industry discussions suggesting a wireless market growth inflection, due to 5G. He sees risks to Nokia's market share "given newsflow implying share gains by its main competitor, Ericsson" (ERIC).
