Apple hits back at Spotify's claims of unfair App Store treatment, AI reports

Apple (AAPL) is hitting back at Spotify's (SPOT) claims of unfair treatment in the App Store, Apple Insider's Mike Weurthele reports. According to data supplied by Apple to the European Commission, only 680,000 of Spotify's users are paying 15% of the subscription fee to Apple, and none are paying the 30% that the music streamer claims. Germany's Der Spiegel also notes that Apple only holds 25% of the smartphone market in the EU, nor is Apple Music dominant in music streaming, and says that Apple shouldn't be considered a monopoly.

Overweight
Spotify should be long-term winner as streaming music grows, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said that competition concerns and perceived label tensions have recently weighed on Spotify (SPOT) shares, but he reiterates his Overweight rating and $170 price target on the stock ahead of the company's upcoming Q1 report on Monday. He continues to see a significant runway for growth at Spotify given its leadership position in Android, the largest mobile ecosystem globally, as well as its higher engagement level relative to competitors such as Amazon Music (AMZN), the analyst tells investors. Streaming now accounts for 47% of global music industry revenue, per IFPI, and should surpass 50% of music industry revenues in 2019, noted Swinburne.

Underperform
Spotify downgraded to Underperform at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI analyst Kevin Rippey downgraded Spotify to Underperform from In Line and lowered his price target on the shares to $110 from $125, stating that the recent rally in the stock "reflects an overly optimistic view" on the company's gross margin path and potential label negotiation outcomes. He does not see a way for Spotify to generate the gross profits "demanded by Street estimates" in the medium-term, Rippey tells investors. The risk "is real" that publisher rates go higher per the existing Copyright Royalty Board ruling and SensorTower data shows that competition at the country level is far more intense than suggested by global aggregates, the analyst said.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Sonoco (SON) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Maguire citing valuation. 2. Occidental Petroleum (OXY) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Devin McDermott saying he believes covering the 2020 dividend at current oil prices will require meaningful capital expenditure cuts, even though the Anadarko (APC) deal looks accretive to cash flow. 3. International Paper (IP) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Mark Connelly saying RISI decided to cut the price of containerboard $10 "just three days after investors breathed a sigh of relief on encouraging supply-demand fundamentals." 4. Shopify (SHOP) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Roth Capital with analyst Darren Aftahi saying he remains positive on its underlying business prospects following the company's Unite conference and investor day but not on the stock's valuation, which has increased in the wake of the event. 5. Spotify (SPOT) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Kevin Rippey saying the recent rally in the stock "reflects an overly optimistic view" on the company's gross margin path and potential label negotiation outcomes.

Deutsche Bank, fearing 2019 iPhone cycle 'lull', starts Apple at Hold
Deutsche Bank analyst Jeriel Ong last night initiated coverage of Apple with a Hold rating and $205 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 58c to $197.87. The analyst sees potential for 2019 iPhone cycle "lull" ahead of 5G iPhones in 2020. And while other hardware is transitioning to growth, namely Watch and AirPods, "this is more of the slow-and-steady variety," Ong tells investors in a research note. Further, Apple's Services business "increasingly faces a law of large numbers dynamic," adds the analyst. Taken together, Ong sees a "balance reward profile relative to the risks" with respect to Apple shares.

Apple letter highlights negative impact of tariffs, says BofA/Merrill
After Apple made public a letter the company sent to United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer regarding its opposition to a proposal to impose up to 25% tariffs on a fourth set of products imported from China, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan said the letter highlights the negative impact of the proposed tariffs seen by a company that makes a significant contribution to the U.S. economy. If and when iPhones sold in the U.S. become subject to a 25% tariff, the net EPS impact would be about $1 overall, assuming unchanged pricing, estimated Mohan. The team at BofA estimates that moving iPhone production to 100% of final assembly in the U.S. would require a 20% price increase to offset incremental costs, the analyst noted. He keeps a Buy rating on Apple, citing its strong capital returns, ramp-up in services, and potential new products.
