Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan and to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI. 2. Domino's Pizza (DPZ) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst John Glass saying he thinks the stock's current price reflects 2-3% blended global same store sales growth over the next two years, which he views as too bearish based on its track record as a "best in class operator." 3. TSYS (TSS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst James Schneider saying the company's new portfolios are driving revenue growth while improving margin expansion is driving earnings acceleration. 4. Omnicom (OMC) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays. 5. Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Jade Rahmani saying she sees an attractive entry point following the recent underperformance of the shares.

Apple to benefit from Qualcomm litigation settlement, says Argus
Argus analyst Jim Kelleher kept his Buy rating and $225 price target on Apple (AAPL), saying the company's "comprehensive legal settlement and new supply agreement with Qualcomm (QCOM)" should benefit the shares. The analyst notes that the decision to settle was driven by the realization that Apple may miss out on the 5G phone cycle upgrade, and the announcement by Intel (INTC) within hours of the settlement highlighted that the Street was more optimistic about its development of a viable 5G chip. Kelleher adds that the cost burden for Qualcomm chip and licensing is not "too severe", which he estimates to be below $25 on devices that may retail for over $1.1K. The analyst also notes that Apple stock remains "attractive compared to its historical valuations and to peer average multiples."

Intel exiting 5G smartphone modem business 'a positive,' says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Aaron Rakers says that following the Apple (AAPL)-Qualcomm (QCOM) settlement announcement, Intel (INTC) announced its intention to exit the 5G smartphone modem business. The analyst views this as a positive for Intel. Rakers reiterates a Market Perform rating on Intel's shares.

Intel 5G modem challenges a key factor leading to Apple settlement, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh notes that Qualcomm (QCOM) and Apple (AAPL) announced an agreement to dismiss all legal proceedings between the two companies worldwide, and says he believes challenges at Intel (INTC) on its 5G modem were a key factor leading to the settlement. The analyst also thinks this settlement likely will lead to a Huawei settlement, which could add another 80c in EPS for Qualcomm. While Vinh views the settlement as encouraging and as removing a major overhang for Qualcomm, he remains Sector Weight as he believes the economic benefit from the Apple settlement is largely reflected in the stock.

Lattice competitive landscape unchanged by Intel deal, says Baird
Shares of Lattice Semiconductor are trading lower on potential concerns related to smartphone procurement dynamics and the competitive landscape, Baird analyst Tristan Gerra tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes, however, that Lattice is de-emphasizing the smartphone market and no longer has content in Apple's (AAPL) new iPhones. Further, Intel's (INTC) acquisition of Omnitek does not change Lattice's competitive landscape, says Gerra. The analyst has an Outperform rating on Lattice Semiconductor with a $10 price target. The stock in afternoon trading is down 5%, or 62c, to $12.43.

Morgan Stanley prefers Seagate over Western Digital as cloud capex recovery play
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said her industry conversations have increased her confidence in a cloud recovery in the second half. Her checks suggest orders from Microsoft (MSFT) will restart in Q2 and rise to above trend levels in Q3 while orders from Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL) are expected to return in Q3. Given this context, Huberty said she prefers Seagate (STX) over Western Digital (WDC) as a play on a cloud capital expenditure recovery, noting that inventory levels position hard disk drives to benefit before NAND, that HDD pricing is structurally better positioned than NAND and her view that Seagate has a better HDD product portfolio to meet cloud demand in the second half of 2019 and first half of 2020. Huberty has an Overweight rating on Seagate and the firm has an Equal Weight rating on Western Digital, which is covered by analyst Joseph Moore.

Citi upgrades NIO to Buy after 47% selloff since March peak
Citi analyst Jeff Chung upgraded NIO Inc. to Buy from Neutral while lowering his price target for the shares to $6.80 from $7.20. BofA/Merrill this morning also upgraded the shares to Neutral from Underperform. Chung is in part making a valuation call with the shares down 47% since the early-March peak. He also expects a valuation "re-rate" of China's electric vehicle sector. NIO's Q1 shipments beat consensus and ES6 deliveries, which start in early June, should be faster than consensus expects, Chung tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes NIO's customer base is less price sensitive due to its premium brand positioning. Share of NIO are up 14c to $5.45 in premarket trading.

NIO Inc. upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Ming Hsun Lee upgraded NIO Inc. to Neutral from Underperform with a price target of $6.20. The shares, after declining 47% from the peak in early March, have now factored in the company's lowered sales volume growth, Lee tells investors in a research note. The analyst views NIO's current valuation as fair and expects its volume sales to grow sequentially in Q2 relative to Q1. The company just launched a six-seater ES8, which should gain some popularity from consumers, says Lee. Further, NIO is arranging more test-drive events in more cities, which the analyst believes should help orders improve.
