F5 Networks downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall downgraded F5 Networks (FFIV) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $120 from $165. The company's earnings risks are increasing due to the weaker short-term spending environment and increasing competitive threat, Hall tells investors in a research note. Enterprise represents ~65% of F5's revenue and short term indications for spending in that market have been weak, says the analyst. Further, he believes VMware (VMW) is now a potential competitor through its proposed acquisition of Avi Networks.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James with analyst David Long saying the retirement of CEO Tim Sloan removes a "headwind." 2. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Alan Gould citing the company's loss of its biggest distributor AT&T (T) having been de-risked which, he believes, raises the likelihood of a Viacom merger with CBS (CBS). 3. F5 Networks (FFIV) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst James Fish saying after underperforming the tech sector and the market over the last six months by ~20%, some of the main downside share catalysts have played out. 4. Mosaic (MOS) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Chris Parkinson citing modest downside to Chinese cash operating costs, lower immediate-term ammonia and sulfur costs, evidence of near-term volume discipline, the emphasis on long-term cost reduction programs and balance sheet stability. 5. KeyCorp (KEY) upgraded to Neutral from Reduce at Nomura Instinet with analyst Bill Carcache saying he believes the shares are near a fair valuation.

Nomura Instinet upgrades F5 to Buy, says security story resonating
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal upgraded F5 Networks to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $180 from $155. "Long an out-of-favor name," F5 shares are now ~25% below their 2018 peak following the acquisition of Nginx, Kvaal tells investors in a research note. However, the analyst's work indicates the company's "security story is resonating," physical application delivery controller revenue declines are contained, and that new launches should boost F5's share in virtual ADCs. He believes the company's "rapidly rising mix of software" will allow its multiple to rise.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. UPS (UPS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg with analyst Joel Spungin saying he is increasingly confident that UPS will deliver margin improvement in both its International business and the U.S. this year, following an in-depth review of European parcel markets. 2. AstraZeneca (AZN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Steve Scala saying the 5% stock decline on news of the company's partnership with Daiichi Sankyo for trastuzumab deruxtecan, which he calls a "promising" breast cancer drug, offers a compelling entry point. 3. Energizer (ENR) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jason English saying he sees a credible path to top-tier EBIT, EBITDA and EPS growth over the next three years "fueled almost entirely" by debt-reduction and synergies from its recently completed deals for the Global Battery & Lighting business and Global Auto Care business of Spectrum Brands (SPB). 4. Anadarko (APC) resumed with a Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Robert Morris citing the stock's underperformance over the past three months and the company's recent success in the Delaware Basin for the upgrade. 5. F5 Networks (FFIV) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet with analyst Jeffrey Kvaal saying "long an out-of-favor name," F5 shares are now ~25% below their 2018 peak following the acquisition of Nginx.

KeyBanc analyst Alex Kurtz raised his price target for VMware to $214 from $206 and reiterated an Overweight rating following the company's Q1 earnings report, saying the company continued to demonstrate strong billings upside, beating consensus billings by $300M, driven by strong Enterprise Agreement activity at 43% of total bookings vs. 36% a year ago.

Nutanix shares 'fairly washed out' amid selloff, says William Blair
Following another "disappointing" quarter, Nutanix (NTNX) management pushed out the prospect of a full recovery with Q4 revenue, billings, and earnings guided well below consensus, William Blair analyst Jason Ader tells investors in a research note. The analyst attributes the weakness to weak sales execution, a faster than expected transition to a subscription business model, and increased competition from main rival Dell Technologies (DELL) / VMware (VMW). Ader, however, believes Nutanix shares are "fairly washed out at this point." As such, he sees a favorable risk/reward equation and keeps an Outperform rating on Nutanix.

Dell Technologies has $10+ EPS potential longer term, says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Amit Daryanani started Dell Technologies (DELL) with an Outperform rating and $75 price target. In a research note to investors, Daryanani cited the company's comprehensive enterprise IT portfolio spanning from personal systems and data center solutions to cloud and infrastructure virtualization software through the company's ~80% ownership stake in VMWare (VMW) in addition to the stock's attractive valuation for the Outperform rating. While there is some level of investor concern surrounding the overall IT spend backdrop following a robust year of technology investments in calendar year 2018 and a "conglomerate discount," he thinks a mix of share gains in each of Dell's core markets, self-help levers., commodity tailwinds, and operational improvements will more than offset potential overhang from these trepidations. Longer term, the analyst sees $10+ EPS potential, which in an upside scenario, drives Dell stock higher toward the $75+ level.

Morgan Stanley still confident in Microsoft's Server & Tools division growth
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss noted that a key debate about Microsoft (MSFT), which has been stoked by recent weakness in other on-premise infrastructure software vendors such as Cloudera (CLDR), Pivotal Software (PVTL) and VMware (VMW), remains the durability of growth in the company's On-premise Server Products and Tools. However, he maintains confidence in the durability of low-single digital growth in the Server Products & Tools division, citing share gains across the solution portfolio. However, Weiss does note that Microsoft faces face unusually tough comparison in the division in Q4 and Q1 of FY20, leaving him to forecast year-over-year declines in these two quarters. He maintains an Overweight rating and $145 price target on Microsoft shares.
