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.

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.

The analyst thinks the company can get back to profitability in 2020 based on new deal signings and cost cuts. He reiterates a Buy rating on Immersion shares.

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).

Microsoft unique as share gainer in old and new 'stacks,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss said Microsoft is in the unique position of being the top share gainer in the "Old Stack" software technologies, such as relational databases, while also being well positioned for several rapidly growing "New Stack" software areas, such as NoSQL databases, PaaS and Developer Planning & Automation Tools. Weiss, who reiterates an Overweight rating and $145 price target on Microsoft shares, contends that the company might be "one of the few vendors with significant Old Stack share to effectively transition for the software development future."

Cloudera price target lowered to $9 from $23 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Rishi Jaluria lowered his price target on Cloudera (CLDR) to $9 after its "disastrous" quarter with a reset of the company's recurring revenue expectations, resignation of its CEO, and weak bookings, as customers await the release of Cloudera Data Platform, or CDP. The analyst also points to Cloudera's higher churn, and increased competitiveness from Amazon's (AMZN) AWS, Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure, and Google's (GOOGL) GCP impacting the quarter. Jaluria cuts his FY21 EPS view to (19c) from 22c but maintains his Buy rating on Cloudera, citing his "glimmer of hope" that the company can reaccelerate growth with CDP or that either a private equity firm or IBM (IBM) would acquire it given the reduced 1.8-times enterprise value to expected 2020 revenue valuation.

Morgan Stanley corrects 'wrong call,' upgrades AMD to Equal Weight
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore upgraded AMD (AMD) to Equal Weight from Underweight and raised his price target for the shares to $28 from $17. Stating that he still remains concerned that consensus forecasts for AMD in the second half of 2019 are too high, Moore acknowledges that "being cautious on the stock has obviously been the wrong call." Given that Intel's (INTC) comeback is "at best deferred" and Nvidia's (NVDA) investment in ray tracing will have a longer-term payoff, Moore tells investors that he now thinks the 2018-19 opportunity sets the table for a period of sustained profits for AMD. He also said he expects AMD to announce a cloud gaming partnership with Microsoft (MSFT) at the E3 event next week.

Outperform
Microsoft Azure's growth still not fully appreciated, says Wells Fargo
Noting that Amazon Web Services (AMZN) entered the cloud computing market several years ahead of Microsoft (MSFT), Wells Fargo analyst Philip Winslow says that the latter has experienced more rapid revenue growth, creating a sizeable differential between Azure's and AWS's growth rates while simultaneously closing the dollar revenue gap over time. Although investors have turned more positive on Microsoft Azure, the analyst believes the full multi-year impact of Azure's growth potential is still not properly reflected in consensus estimates for Microsoft. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $145 price target on Microsoft's shares.
