Guess in penalty box but fundamentals healthy, says Jefferies
While Guess shares will be in the penalty box near-term as an inventory overhang weighs on margins, its fundamentals remain healthy, Jefferies analyst Janine Stichter tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects CEO Carlos Alberini's return to be a positive catalyst for Guess and that his first earnings call as CEO was a strong one. Significant market share potential remains in Europe and Asia for Guess while North America appears to be gaining momentum, says Stichter. She keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $24 price target.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Saia (SAIA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Amit Mehrotra saying after meeting with management, he is incrementally more confident in Saia's ability to generate double-digit revenue growth this year. 2. Guess (GES) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Janine Stichter saying the recent pullback in the stock puts the company's multiple below its historical average and peers. 3. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Catherine O'Brien saying she expects passenger revenue trends for the company in the first half of the year to be stronger than previously anticipated. 4. MacroGenics (MGNX) upgraded to Buy from Sell at Citi with analyst Yigal Nochomovitz saying additional Phase 1 readouts in 2019 should provide further stock momentum for MacroGenics. 5. Cognizant (CTSH) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Keith Bachman citing the company's FY19 revenue growth outlook and a positive management transition. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Jefferies upgrades Guess to Buy following recent share pullback
Jefferies analyst Janine Stichter upgraded Guess to Buy from Hold with an unchanged price target of $24. The recent pullback in the stock puts the company's multiple below its historical average and peers, Stichter tells investors in a research note. This presents an opportunity to own one of the few remaining retailers with both top-line growth and potential for margin expansion, the analyst writes. Further, she views the management change as an opportunity, not a sign of current weakness. Stichter also sees a "substantial runway for growth ahead" in Europe and Asia for Stichter, while pointing out that data suggest inflecting North America momentum.

AMD taking desktop CPU lead from Intel for first time, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Kevin Cassidy issued his thoughts over the weekend on the Computex opening keynote that AMD (AMD) CEO Lisa Su delivered on Sunday night, stating that she focused on AMD's strength in high performance markets including the data center, gaming, and PCs. The CEO officially announced the company's third generation Ryzen PC CPUs and next generation GPU, which "represents the first time AMD has taken the desktop CPU lead process technology and performance lead from Intel in its 50 year history," according to Cassidy. While still awaiting third-party benchmark tests, the analyst said it "seems obvious" that AMD has the lead in price/performance/watt and he expects the company to accelerate its PC market share gains. Cassidy keeps a Buy rating and $34 price target on AMD shares, which are up $2.49, or 9.4%, to $28.91 near noon.

AMD keynote highlights 'astonishing' CPU leadership, says Rosenblatt
AMD (AMD) CEO Lisa Su's keynote at Taiwan's Computex show highlighted the company's "astonishing CPU leadership for years to come and a resurgent graphics roadmap," Rosenblatt analyst Hans Mosesmann told investors earlier in a research note. AMD shares are up 10% to $28.97 in midday trading. AMD is launching a series of new 7nm-based Zen2 architecture Ryzen 3000 desktops, which are set to disrupt Intel 14nm desktop central processing unit market share through 2022, contends Mosesmann. Ryzen 3000 price points are 10% to over 50% below Intel counterparts, which will place pressure on Intel selling prices, says the analyst, who keeps a Buy rating on AMD shares with a $42 price target.

New Gold downgraded to Underperform at RBC Capital on eroding cash flow
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Dan Rollins downgraded New Gold to Underperform from Sector Perform and lowered his price target to $1.40 from $3.50. The analyst cites elevated financial leverage and "material" reduction in free cash flow, along with continued risk related to Rainy River mine ramp. Rollins believes that although New Gold has underperformed the broader gold mining ETF GDX by 30%, it will continue to underperform until its risks diminish.

DOJ's Google probe could embolden critics of tech giants, says BofA/Merrill
After the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday that the U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to open an investigation into Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) compliance with antitrust laws, BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post said that while FTC commissioners have voted in the past not to pursue a lawsuit and possible breakup of Google, the current climate "is somewhat different." In a research note to investors, Post says antitrust probes are "difficult to predict," and that if the DOJ moves ahead, an investigation would likely embolden critics of Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and other tech giants as well, causing rhetoric to heat up during the 2020 election year. Potential implications for Google could include new regulations on business practices or an antitrust investigation leading to a breakup, but to break up Google, the DOJ would likely have to file a lawsuit and convince judges that Google has undermined competition. Post has a Buy rating and $1,350 price target on shares of Google parent Alphabet.

Cray downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Chad Bennett downgraded Cray (CRAY) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target on the shares to $35 from $36 after HP Enterprise (HPE) announced that it has entered into an agreement to purchase the company for $35.00 per share in cash, totaling $1.3B net of cash. The analyst believes the possibility of another buyer coming in over the top is fairly low, but notes that the price is "too low" based on the opportunities Cray has in front of it over the next few years. Furthermore, Bennett believes there would be a number of interested parties in Cray including Microsoft (MSFT), Dell (DELL), Intel (INTC), Alphabet (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), and potentially IBM (IBM).

The analyst is also keeping his Market Perform rating after the 20% deal-related run-up in TSYS shares which demonstrated the "attractiveness of merchant acquirers and the benefits of scale." Fotheringham notes that from current levels, there is greater potential in other financial technology names under his coverage like Visa (V) and Paypal (PYPL).

Facebook crypto, Marketplace could drive growth for PayPal, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Brad Berning notes that investors have been worried about the impact of PayPal (PYPL) losing eBay (EBAY) and missing out on market share opportunities by not participating in Amazon's (AMZN) platform. However, the analyst points out that Facebook's (FB) crypto currency may be coming sooner than expected, which will have large implications for the payments industry as Facebook looks to co-op partners for loading payments, processing FX settlements, and providing exit points to spend the money in cash, crypto, digital wallets and cards networks. Additionally, Berning believes Facebook's Marketplace initiative could be a large positive for PayPal, with the potential to sustain its strong TPV growth rate in the 2021/2022 timeframe, despite eBay unwinding starting in the second half of 2020. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating and $125 price target on PayPal's shares.

PayPal price target raised to $130 from $114 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer raised his price target on PayPal to $130 and kept his Buy rating, saying that while the stock has rallied over 45% since its December low, the company's "operational momentum", expanding margins, and robust total payment volume growth warrant a higher valuation. Among the drivers, the analyst cites the monetization progress at Venmo, significant optionality of PayPal's $9.5B cash balance and strong free cash flows, continued rapid growth of active accounts, and rising customer engagement. Palmer is also positive on the company's accelerating international expansion and the opportunity that comes with progress toward in-store payments following its acquisition of iZettle.
