Sony aims to bolster cash flow to better compete in chips, games, NAR says

Sony is seeking to bolster its cash generation in an effort to improve competitiveness in semiconductors and video games, Nikkei Asian Review's Hisashi Iwato and Daisuke Maruyama report. The company is targeting at least JPY2.2T in operating cash flow, excluding its financial services unit, for the three year period through March 2021, raising its target by JPY200B, and is aiming for a 50% hike in operating cash flow from the preceding three years, the authors note, citing an updated plan unveiled by the Japanese group. President and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said that funds brought in by its electronic products and solutions business as well as gaming will be siphoned into two growth fields, namely CMOS image sensors and entertainment, the authors say.

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 Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst James Faucette citing his view that the market has "not yet fully appreciated" the impact of the company's settlement with Apple (AAPL), which he thinks not only increases earnings substantially while also expanding the freedom with which Qualcomm can pursue new opportunities. 2. Kimberly-Clark (KMB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus and to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie. 3. Sanderson Farms (SAFM) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Adam Samuelson saying African swine fever is upending the protein markets, Samuelson tells investors in a research note. 4. Visteon (VC) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird while Veoneer (VNE) was upgraded to Neutral from Underperform. 5. Sony (SNE) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie.

Chicken Soup for the Soul initiated with a Buy at Maxim
As previously reported, Maxim analyst Allen Klee initiated Chicken Soup for the Soul (CSSE) with a Buy rating and a price target of $18. The analyst expects the company's Crackle Plus online streaming joint venture with Sony (SNE) to double the company's revenues in 2019, making it "one of the largest players in the attractive advertising video-on-demand market." Klee also cites Chicken Soup for the Soul's "strong brands, accretive acquisitions, low risk TV production, and revenue streams from production/distribution/advertising", positioning the company for longer term growth. The analyst further cites the attractive valuation for the shares at 12-times his expected 2019 adjusted EBITDA.

Sony, Microsoft JV a 'surprsing turn' in 'battle for living room,' says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said he views the joint venture pact between competitors Microsoft (MSFT) and Sony (SNE) on cloud-based gaming services as both "surprising" and a validation of the emerging market for streaming. The two companies clearly view video games as strategically important enough to put aside their intense competition and see Google (GOOGL) as a legitimate competitor and the Stadia streaming platform as a credible threat, said Sebastian, who added that he does not believe this means Sony and Microsoft will forego their separate console hardware platforms. He also believes that video game developers and publishers should benefit from the intensifying battle among platform companies for share of the game market and the "living room audience." Publicly traded game makers include Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO).
