Uber CEO seeks to reassure employees after IPO, Yahoo Finance reports

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi looked to reassure employees following last week's IPO and subsequent stock drop, telling employees in a memo, "Obviously our stock did not trade as well as we had hoped post-IPO. Today is another tough day in the market, and I expect the same as it related to our stock. But it is essential for us to keep our eye on the long-term value of Uber for our customers, partners, drivers and investors," Yahoo Finance's Brian Sozzi reports, citing the memo. Khosrowshahi added that "It is essential for us to keep our eye on the long-term value of Uber for our customers, partners, drivers and investors," further commenting "Remember that the Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN) post-IPO trading was incredibly difficult for those companies. And look at how they have delivered since. Our road will be the same. Sentiment does not change overnight, and I expect some tough public market times over the coming months. But we have all the capital we need to demonstrate a path to improved margins and profits. As the market sees evidence, sentiment will improve, and as sentiment improves, the stock will follow."

Planet Fitness price target raised to $85 from $75 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik raised his price target for Planet Fitness (PLNT) to $85 from $75 saying the company reported "great" Q1 results with comps and margins ahead of consensus. However, the shares are trading lower due to elevated expectations, Konik tells investors in a research note. He continues to believe Planet Fitness' investments in marketing, expanding affinity programs, increasing Black Card penetration, and membership growth resemble a business model similar to that of Amazon.com (AMZN). The analyst sees upside in the shares and reiterates a Buy rating on the name.

Bernstein analyst Brandon Fletcher upgraded Walmart (WMT) to Outperform from Market Perform, saying that while he thinks Walmart has not been able to return to its full potential for decades, but that the fully realized vision of what Walmart could be is "so fantastic that, if it even accidentally leans in the right direction," he thinks it could create an outsized investment return over several years. Fletcher tells investors in a research note that he thinks Walmart is the only full-scale challenger to Amazon (AMZN), with sizable investments on Price & Convenience and Price & Assortment.

BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Disney (DIS) to $170 and kept his Outperform rating ahead of its Q2 results, saying he expects an "upbeat quarter" and positive commentary around June quarter's main events of Endgame box office and the first Edge of Galaxy opening. The analyst also believes that the company will join Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN) at the helm of global streaming while noting that its Star Wars themed lands its theme parks and the launch of Disney+ will materialize as catalysts for this year.

ADT Inc. downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Toni Kaplan downgraded ADT Inc. (ADT) to Equal Weight from Overweight as she has less confidence in the company's growth outlook following a recent AlphaWise survey conducted by the firm. The survey showed homeowners seem as inclined to buy DIY systems as ADT systems, that more ADT customers switched to DIY providers than she would have expected and that measure of brand preference for Amazon's (AMZN) Ring and Google's (GOOG) Nest were higher than for ADT, Kaplan explains. Given that the survey leads her to fear ADT may find it difficult to defend its market share, Kaplan lowered her price target on the stock to $7 from $9.

Alphabet sub-20% sales growth to bring share pressure, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth expects Alphabet (GOOGL) shares to be under pressure in the near-term given the company's sub-20% revenue growth in Q1 and downward earnings revisions. The exact drivers of Alphabet's slowing sales are unclear, and frustration around the company's lack of transparency will only increase, Anmuth tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst, however, points out that Alphabet has maintained 20%-plus growth for a very long time, off a large base. He maintains an Overweight rating on the stock with a $1,310 price target but prefers shares of Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Netflix (NFLX) to Alphabet.

Wedbush bullish on Uber, initiates coverage with an Outperform
As previously reported, Wedbush analyst Ygal Arounian started coverage of Uber (UBER) with an Outperform and $65 price target. The analyst notes that the ridesharing industry has become one of the most transformational growth sectors of the global consumer market over the past five years, with Uber establishing itself as the clear number 1 player and paving a similar road to what Amazon (AMZN) did to transform retail/e-commerce and Facebook (FB) did for social media. The brand loyalty of Uber is hard to dispute as the company continues to attract drivers and consumers "illustrating an impressive formula" to go after a $5.7T opportunity globally on transportation, which swells to $7T-$8T when including third-party food delivery and freight/logistics, he contends.

After attending an investor gathering with PayPal (PYPL) management, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said his key takeaways from the meeting were management's ongoing confidence in intermediate-term earnings growth targets and the early signs of progress on expanding its marketplace partnerships, including news that PayPal will be providing the infrastructure for Facebook's (FB) Marketplace payment offering. Additionally, Sebastian noted that the UK Competition and Markets Authority issued a preliminary ruling that it does not believe PayPal's acquisition of iZettle raises any competitive concerns, which he sees as a key milestone to getting the deal approved. Sebastian keeps an Outperform rating and $118 price target on PayPal shares.

Alphabet price target lowered to $1,300 from $1,375 at JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Ronald Josey said competition "may have played a role" in Alphabet's (GOOGL) worse than expected Q1 revenue given that better than expected advertising results have recently been reported by Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR), Snap (SNAP) and Amazon (AMZN). However, he believes the "majority of the deceleration was self-imposed," he tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Some of the company's product changes, such as changes at YouTube's recommendation engine, likely acted as a headwind, the analyst surmised. Josey sees benefits from investments in hardware and Google Cloud and thinks that multiple monetization opportunities remain for Alphabet, leading him to maintain an Outperform rating on the stock, though he lowered his price target on shares to $1,300 from $1,375.

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.

Uber's conservative pricing 'smart and prudent,' says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Ygal Arounian maintained an Outperform rating on Uber (UBER) with a $65 price target after the ride-hailing company's IPO priced at $45 per share, valuating the company north of $80B. In a research note to investors, Arounian says he views Uber's conservative pricing as a "smart and prudent" strategy coming out of the box as it clearly learned from its "little brother" Lyft (LYFT), and the experience it has gone through over the past month. Arounian says he views Lyft as a "one trick pony" domestic ride sharing player and believes Uber has clearly established itself as the clear #1 player in the ridesharing industry and is paving a similar road to what Amazon (AMZN) did to transform retail and ecommerce and Facebook (FB) did for social media.

Lyft reported strong quarter out of the gates, says Piper Jaffray
Lyft reported revenue and adjusted EBITDA ahead of consensus, while also guiding both Q2 and fiscal 2019 above the Street, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note partially titled "Strong Out of the Gates." The company indicated that, while it continues to spend aggressively on various initiatives, the competitive pressure on rider incentives for core ridesharing has receded to some degree, adds Olson. He sees this as a sign of a rational duopoly between Lyft and Uber (UBER) for the time being. The analyst recommends owning Lyft shares as these levels and maintains an Overweight rating on the name with a $78 price target.
