LendingClub downgraded as FTC probe seen detering investors at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette downgraded LendingClub to Equal Weight from Overweight as he thinks the previously disclosed FTC investigation into the company's lending practices will be a drag on new investor interest and involvement in the stock until it is resolved. While its fundamentals are undervalued, there is also execution risk, added Faucette, who lowered his price target on LendingClub shares to $5 from $6.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. NEEDHAM CUTS TESLA TO UNDERPERFORM: Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill downgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Underperform from Hold, stating the stock remains overvalued in spite of its 16% decline from the the June 2017 peak. The analyst cited expectations of slower Model S/X sales amid increased competition and possible cannibalization from the Model 3, the expiration of credits, slower gross margins improvement with "persistently high" production costs, lower energy segment revenue after recent restructuring, and Tesla's "unsustainable capital structure." Tesla is down 1.9% in midday trading. CREDIT SUISSE UPGRADES SQUARE: Credit Suisse analyst Paul Condra upgraded Square (SQ) to Outperform from Neutral, saying he believes its growing product eco-system is increasing its ability to penetrate larger merchants. He also said positive data points on Cash-App adoption validate Square's two-sided platform strategy to grow both merchant and consumer use-cases. The analyst also raised his price target on the shares to $81 from $44. MORGAN STANLEY UPS SQUARE TARGET: Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette sees good potential for upward estimate revisions for Square in the near-term and raised his price target on the stock to $75 from $43. However, Faucette kept an Equal Weight rating on Square, calling its valuation "demanding" and citing his continued view that new services are misvalued. Square is higher by 3.5% at midday. MORGAN STANLEY DOWNGRADES LENDINGCLUB, ON DECK: Morgan Stanley's Faucette downgraded LendingClub (LC) to Equal Weight from Overweight as he thinks the previously disclosed FTC investigation into the company's lending practices will be a drag on new investor interest and involvement in the stock until it is resolved. Faucette lowered his price target on LendingClub shares to $5 from $6. Faucette downgraded On Deck Capital (ONDK) to Underweight from Equal Weight, stating that he sees the company needing a long time to meaningfully scale the "OnDeck-as-a-Service," which he believes will limit the stock's potential for valuation expansion above small-to-mid cap banks. Also, Faucette sees limited upside potential to origination growth estimates given the company's preference for delivering profitability versus growth, he tells investors. PIPER POSITIVE ON CISCO AND ARISTA, CALLS AMAZON FEARS OVERBLOWN: Amazon (AMZN) is not entering the network switching market as speculated on July 13, Piper Jaffray analyst James Fish told investors in a research note. The confirmation by Amazon removes the potential shadow of Amazon on the space. The analyst continued to recommend Cisco (CSCO) and Arista (ANET) as his top networking picks.

Subprime lenders weakness may be opportunity, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic attributes weakness in shares of subprime consumer lenders to news that U.S. Bancorp (USB) is re-entering the small dollar, high yield lending business after Fifth Third (FITB) re-entered two months ago. However, he views the OCC's push for banks to offer small dollar loans as a positive for online lenders and notes that the recent bank announcements are for loans yielding 40%-70%, which competes against products from Regional Management (RM) and World Acceptance (WRLD) but should not impact online lenders. Subprime online lenders include Enova (ENVA) and Elevate Credit (ELVT). Other publicly traded companies in the FinTech space include LendingClub (LC) and On Deck Capital (ONDK).

Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh said Papa John's February update was "somewhat encouraging" and that the company's guidance for FY19 was "better than feared." While he expects sales and margins to remain pressured throughout 2019, Slabaugh thinks market expectations are for a choppy recovery and the quarterly report "helped to keep the hope for $2.00 in EPS power alive," he tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $55 price target on Papa John's shares.

Papa John's upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel
Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull upgraded Papa John's International to Hold from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $45 from $35. The analyst believes the company's turnaround has entered a phase where investors believe the worst is behind it "and are willing to accord the company a hall pass to see whether the sales plan can work." The more optimistic sentiment stems from the view that the new board of directors and new brand spokesperson Shaquille O'Neal can reverse the declining traffic and EBITDA trends, O'Cull tells investors in a research note titled "Sell Thesis Not a Slam Dunk; Investors Optimism Outweighing Fundamentals." The analyst remains concerned that low franchisee profits will require ongoing financial support from Papa John's and declining transactions will pressure commissary profits, but he believes investor optimism will likely outweigh these fundamental issues in the near-term.

However, Vinh tells investors in a research note that recent field work indicates that despite the design win, Qorvo has failed to be qualified and is likely to lose its share in the 2019 iPhone back to Broadcom (AVGO). As this was a key tenet of his Overweight thesis and he believes it puts forward estimates at risk, he downgraded the stock to Sector Weight.

Atlantic starts Uber with Neutral rating despite preferring over Lyft
Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell initiated coverage of Uber (UBER) with a Neutral rating and $55 price target ahead of the company's initial public offering. The analyst this morning also initiated coverage of Lyft (LYFT) with an Underweight rating and $50 price target. Transportation-as-a-service addresses a large market opportunity, says the analyst, whose analysis shows that scale enables superior returns and a clearer path to profitability. Given the benefits of scale, Cordwell prefers Uber to Lyft, due to the company's "market-leading ridehailing position augmented by the fast-growing Eats business and freight brokerage opportunity." The analyst's year-end 2019 price target of $55 for Uber implies 0.9 times fiscal 2020 gross bookings, which he notes is similar to the historical average multiple of Amazon's (AMZN) e-commerce business.

While difficult to maintain the 30% growth experienced in 2018, Match Group should see sustainable mid to high teen revenue growth and high 30% margins going forward, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a research note. However, with the stock up 32% year-to-date, "further multiple expansion may prove difficult at these levels," adds the analyst. Nonetheless, Thill trusts Match's "history of quarterly execution" and the long-term "tailwinds at play. He expects the stock "to grind higher rather than fly higher" and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $64 price target. It remains a top mid cap pick at Jefferies.

T-Mobile price target raised to $88 from $76 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brandon Nispel raised his price target for T-Mobile (TMUS) to $88 from $76, saying he believes that "with or without" Sprint (S), T-Mobile's fundamentals and market position are extremely strong relative to its valuation and he would be aggressively buying shares. Nispel tells investors in a research note that he sees potential for T-Mobile to beat subscriber expectations in 2019, beat adjusted EBITDA expectations and believes the skeptics view on lower than expected ARPU and gross additions as "wrong." He backs an Overweight rating on the shares.

SBA Communications price target raised to $215 from $195 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brandon Nispel raised his price target for SBA Communications to $215 from $195 as he continues to expect accelerating organic growth in its domestic business in 2019 versus 2018 and sees further potential for acceleration in 2020 versus 2019 if the T-Mobile (TMUS)/Sprint (S) merger is approved. The analyst also believes valuations can continue to trend higher given strong underlying growth in the business and his view that guidance could continue to be raised in 2019. He reiterates an Overweight rating on SBA Communications shares.

T-Mobile, Sprint select Henrietta, NY for T-Mobile Customer Experience Center
T-Mobile US (TMUS) and Sprint Corporation (S) announced that they have selected Henrietta, New York, as the location for their previously announced Greater Rochester area Customer Experience Center, subject to the close of their merger to become the New T-Mobile. At full operation, the New T-Mobile CEC facility in Henrietta will directly employ more than 1,000 workers in the community and indirectly produce another 500 to 600 jobs. The new CEC jobs will feature great wages and benefits and will make the New T-Mobile one of the region's top 20 largest employers. The Henrietta CEC will support the expanded deployment of T-Mobile's innovative Team of Experts service model, which provides customers direct personal access to a dedicated team of specialists when they call or message for assistance. Specialists based in the Henrietta CEC will serve a large portion of the Northeast, including New York State. T-Mobile is not seeking any economic incentives related to this facility. In selecting the Greater Rochester area, T-Mobile engaged the Center for Governmental Research, an independent nonprofit consultancy, to conduct a thorough assessment of the economic and fiscal impact of a proposed Henrietta CEC on the Greater Rochester region. CGR found that the new development would likely generate significant economic momentum for the Greater Rochester area. According to CGR's analysis the region will see the following benefits: Spillover effects of New T-Mobile's investment will generate 500 to 600 jobs in addition to the up to approximately 1300 direct CEC employees within the region. CEC employee payroll will range from $22.1 to $26.0 million and will generate a combined income/sales tax of $1.5 to $1.8 million. Construction-phase investment will produce 200 direct and 30 spillover jobs with a total combined payroll of $13.0 million. Compensation and spending at the fully operational CEC will include $2.6 to $3.2 million in income tax and $1.7 to $2.0 million in combined state and local sales tax. The completion of the combination remains subject to regulatory approvals and certain other customary closing conditions. Federal regulatory approval is expected in the first half of 2019.

Electronic Arts downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on valuation
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Eric Handler downgraded Electronic Arts to Neutral, saying the risk-reward on the stock appears to be "less compelling." The analyst is raising his price target to $100 from $92 and his FY20 EPS target to $4.36 from $4.02, but sees diminished potential from incremental drivers for FY20 given the "head fake" of early success for Apex Legends and indications of no recurrent revenue potential for Star Wars Jedi title. Handler also warns that Electronic Arts' mobile revenue could "decline double digits."

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Yeti (YETI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexandra Walvis saying the company's "strong" sales and brand momentum are now better understood by investors. 2. Electronic Arts (EA) downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on valuation with analyst Eric Handler saying the risk-reward on the stock appears to be "less compelling." 3. Cognizant (CTSH) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair, to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan, to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs, to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer, to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc, to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush and to Hold from Strong Buy at Needham after the company's earnings and guidance missed consensus estimates. 4. Target (TGT) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst Brandon Fletcher saying he thinks Target's continued emphasis on growth over cost containment is a "less wise" stance at this point. 5. Achillion (ACHN) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Geoffrey Meacham seeing a lack of near- to mid-term catalysts that are capable of changing the story on the stock. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Electronic Arts selloff on Apex, China concerns 'unwarranted,' says Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Matthew Harrigan reiterates a Neutral rating and $103 price target on Electronic Arts. Nonetheless, the analyst would be opportunistic this week off what he feels was "unwarranted" negative price action on Friday from "very late" Apex Legends concerns and a likely reflexive China selloff on Monday, as well as uncertainty around earnings.
