VeriSign results may signal little booking growth for GoDaddy, say Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson maintained an Overweight rating and $91 price target on GoDaddy (GDDY), but lowered this Q4 booking estimates for the company based on Verisign's (VRSN) earnings report, which showed a slight top-line miss and lower sequential net adds, leading the analyst to believe there is minimal room for quarter-over-quarter bookings growth for GoDaddy in Q4. Olson lowered his Q4 bookings est to $740M from $744M, and his revenue estimtae to $692M from $695M, but left his EPS estimate of 19c unchanged. Olson believes, however, that "continued efforts on GoDaddy's website builder and eCommerce initiatives are closing the gap with builder rivals, such as Wix."

AMD addition to Nasdaq-100 a 'small near-term positive', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves notes the addition of AMD (AMD) to the Nasdaq-100 index announced late on Friday, which also contained the inclusion of lululemon (LULU), NetApp (NTAP), United Continental Holdings (UAL), VeriSign (VRSN) and Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) and the subtraction of Express Scripts Holding (ESRX), Hologic (HOLX), Qurate Retail (QRTEA), Shire (SHPG), Seagate Technology (STX) and Vodafone Plc (VOD). The analyst believes that the change - which will become effective before the market open on December 24th - could act as a "small near-term positive" for AMD shares, even though it does not change its fundamentals. Longer term, the analyst keeps his Outperform rating and $34 price target on AMD, but warns that the company is faced with a crypto currency downdraft in the Gaming segment and that he is also cautious on the hyperscale spending trends next year which he estimates in the low single digits. Steves adds that the notable investor debate is also taking place around the AMD server average selling prices, which he sees coming in around $5,400 - the higher end of the more bullish forecasts of $5K-$6K vs. the bears' estimate around $4K.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Emergent BioSolutions (EBS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Dana Flanders saying he sees an "underappreciated opportunity" for Emergent to expand into other verticals, highlighted by Narcan nasal spray. 2. Michael Kors (KORS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS and to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray. 3. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Andrew Casey sayoing the recent selloff has created an opportunity "to get back on board the PH stock train." 4. Ingredion (INGR) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst David Driscoll saying the worst is now likely behind the company's North American operations, which should resume growth in 2019 "when many of the transitory 2018 issues will be in the rear view mirror." 5. VeriSign (VRSN) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan and to Outperform from Neutral at Baird. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

VeriSign upgraded to Outperform after cooperative agreement amendment at Baird
As reported previously, Baird analyst Rob Oliver upgraded VeriSign to Outperform from Neutral following a disclosure that detailed an amendment to its cooperative agreement that grants the company the right to pursue up to 7% price increases in the last four years of its six year contract.
