Epic workers describe 'Fortnite' working environment as toxic, Polygon says

Current and former employees at Epic, which makes the popular battle royale shooter "Fortnite," say that they regularly have worked in excess of 70-hour weeks, with some saying that have worked 100-hour weeks, Polygon's Colin Campbell reports, citing a dozen interviews conducted over a period of several months. Certain Epic employees and contractors claim that they have felt extreme pressure to work intense hours to maintain the success and profitability of "Fortnite," which has led to a toxic, stressful environment at the game maker, Campbell says. Contract staff at the company's quality assurance and customer service departments described to Polygon a stressful and hostile working environment in which working overtime was an expected service to Epic, even though it was officially voluntary. Though such staff were paid overtime, developers spoke of a culture of fear, in which they were expected to work long hours as part of their job, the author notes. Investors in Epic include Tencent (TCEHY), KKR (KKR), and Disney (DIS). Reference Link

Tencent initiated with an Outperform at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein started Tencent Holdings with an Outperform rating and $55 price target. Despite slowing online gaming sales in China, Tencent should continue to lead the gaming industry with innovations and better consumer engagement, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst sees "ample runway" for the company's advertising business with the largest online audience in China.

YY downgraded to Neutral on slowing Live business at Nomura Instinet
As previously reported, Nomura Instinet analyst Jialong Shi downgraded YY (YY) to Neutral from Buy as the company struggles to find a new driver for its slowing YY Live business, which is facing rising competition from Tencent-backed (TCEHY) Kuaishou and Kugou. Shi cut FY19 revenue and earnings estimates for YY by 3% and 5%, respectively, and lowered the price target on the stock to $74 from $75.

Facebook looking to emulate WeChat ecosystem, says Oppenheimer
In the wake of recent Facebook (FB) employee departures, product announcements and regulatory risk, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein views WhatsApp and Instagram's founders departure as related to those products being integrated into Facebook. CPO Cox's departure confirms Zuckerberg is likely to purse a more aggressive product refresh, he contends, adding that Facebook appears to want to emulate Tencent (TCEHY) WeChat's ecosystem, allowing information sharing, communications and commerce in a single application. Lastly, Helfstein views Facebook's announcement of the "Clear History" tool as a way to get in front of potential U.S. and international regulation of consumer internet data. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $195 price target on Facebook's shares.

Tencent price target raised to HK$400 from HK$360 at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Fawne Jiang said Tencent reported "solid" Q4 results, with revenue upside driven largely by growth in payments and cloud services. She expects the company's online gaming business to recover gradually during 2019 with the resumption of game approvals. Jiang maintains a Buy rating on Tencent and raised her price target on the shares to HK$400 from HK$360.

Acadia selloff appears 'overdone,' says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte views Acadia (ACHC) as being oversold after the CNBC newsflow on Friday around the issues ongoing with the sale process to KKR (KKR). The analyst notes that it is unclear to her if the strategic leak to CNBC is coming from the company itself to signal the end of the current sale process, or is a move from the current potential buyers in pursuit of a lower price. Gupte reiterates a Market Perform rating and $42 price target on Acadia shares.

KKR downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Alexander Blostein removed KKR from his firm's Americas Conviction List but keeps a Buy rating on the name. The analyst thinks the more challenging macro backdrop will likely be a headwind for the company's near-term cash earnings growth and book value growth. He still sees "significant upside" to his $27 12-month price target, but cautions that the "near-term path is less certain."

Goldman Sachs analyst Alexander Blostein downgraded T. Rowe Price (TROW) to Neutral with a $93 price target. The analyst also removed the shares of KKR (KKR) and IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) from his firm's Americas Conviction List, but keeps Buy ratings on both. Blostein continues to view T. Rowe as "one of the strongest active management franchises" in a challenging environment for traditional asset managers, but he believes "risks to the stock are building." Flows are likely to decelerate "meaningfully" as T. Rowe's three-year excess returns in parts on equities and particularly in fixed income are declining and broader retail rotation out of equities remains a risk, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

JPMorgan sees 'much more' to like than not in Netflix Q1, ups target to $450
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) to $450 from $435 and reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares following last night's Q1 results. While the earnings report "may be controversial to some," mostly because of the light Q2 subscriber outlook, there's "much more to like here than not," Anmuth tells investors in a research note. Netflix's Q1 paid net adds of 9.6M and operating margin of 10.2% is above expectations and the company expects 2019 paid net adds to be greater than in 2018, the analyst points out. Further, he sees a "strong" back half of 2019 content slate across series and films. While 2020 will bring a more competitive landscape, the secular global streaming trend and ongoing improvements to Netflix's product should continue to drive "strong" sub growth, says Anmuth. He continues to believe that Disney+ (DIS) will not be a major threat to Netflix subscriber numbers.

Netflix price target lowered to $410 from $425 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein lowered his price target for Netflix (NFLX) to $410 from $425 on modestly weaker FY19/20 subscriber outlook, partially offset by higher APRU. The analyst notes that despite new competitive entrants, such as Apple (AAPL) and Disney (DIS), Netflix cites potential for further upside with only 2% of global downstream mobile internet traffic versus 10% peak viewing share in U.S. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Netflix's shares.

Morgan Stanley says streaming video survey points to more multiple service users
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said his firm's annual streaming video survey showed that Netflix (NFLX) remains the most widely used service, with 48% of respondents identifying themselves as users. Of interest, 50% of Netflix users also use Amazon (AMZN) Prime Video, 64% of Prime members use Netflix and 81% of Hulu users said they use Netflix, all of which are up from the prior survey. Also, 37% of respondents expressed some level of interest in subscribing to Disney+ (DIS) at $8/month, which is higher than the price point the company announced, and 60% of respondents who reported having children expressed some level of interest, noted Swinburne. Hulu is a joint venture of Disney and Comcast (CMCSA).

She keeps a Buy rating on Disney shares, noting that she thinks Disney+ can become a material value driver for shareholders.
