Wedbush cautious on Micron, initiates with a Neutral
As previously reported, Wedbush analyst Mathew Bryson initiated Micron (MU) with a Neutral and $30 price target. The analyst notes that Micron has suffered and continues to suffer from the downturn in memory fundamentals. Bryson remains less positive about 2019 second half fundamentals and to some extent Micron's execution as focus shifts from clear improvements in NAND chip production on the 32 layer and 64 layer nodes toward questions around Micron's ability to execute on charge trap without Intel (INTC), while at the same time needing to build scale in this market to compete effectively with its much larger peers. Net, he is not yet convinced the memory markets have bottomed.

DRAM, NAND monthly contract pricing declines continue in June, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Weston Twigg says that inSpectrum released its June monthly memory contract pricing, with price declines continuing. DRAM contract pricing for 8Gb DDR4 was down 7.4% month over month and down 26.5% quarter over quarter, he notes, adding that he anticipates DRAM price declines to continue through 2019, though the rate of decline will likely decelerate further in the second half of the year. Meanwhile, Twigg points out that NAND contract pricing for 128Gb TLC was down 3.3% month over month and down 11.5% quarter over quarter, and expects NAND pricing to stabilize in the second half of the year as year over year bit supply should drop and demand is likely to improve. Despite near-term demand headwinds in both DRAM and NAND, he continues to anticipate meaningful long-term growth as new demand drivers, such as 5G, hyperscale, and edge/endpoint devices, continue to expand. Further, Twigg views the DRAM market as likely healthier and more profitable than NAND over the long run given just three main producers - Micron (MU), Samsung (SSNLF), and SK Hynix -, strong long-term demand drivers, and rational capacity expansion.

Western Digital power outage gives Maxim confidence in NAND price rise call
After Western Digital (WDC) announced that the Yokaichi power outage will impact approximately 6 exabytes of NAND flash capacity, Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi said the news, combined with additional idling of capacity by Micron (MU), gives him "a high degree of confidence" in forecast for NAND flash prices to begin increasing in the September quarter. Chokshi reiterated a Buy rating and $126 price target on Western Digital shares, though he pushed out his price target basis to FY21.

As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded NIO Inc. (NIO) to Underperform from Neutral and cut its price target to $3 from $6.20. Analyst Ming Hsun Lee expects weak orders for the ES8 and ES6 due to EV purchase subsidy cuts, less cash flow from reduced car sales, increased competition from Tesla's (TSLA) Model 3 in 2020, and views valuation as "rich." Lee lowered his volume sales forecast for 2019 by 20% to 27k units and 2020 by 45% to 40k units.

General Mills (GIS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jason English saying that after a period of outperformance from sequential improvement in the company's core business and the impact of its acquisition of Blue Buffalo, General Mills is entering its next "chapter" of "mounting deceleration." 2. NIO Inc. (NIO) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ming Hsun Lee saying he expects weak orders for the ES8 and ES6 due to EV purchase subsidy cuts, less cash flow from reduced car sales, increased competition from Tesla's (TSLA) Model 3 in 2020, and views valuation as "rich." 3. American Campus (ACC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities with analyst Aaron Hecht saying his firm's checks at UC Berkeley indicate that the 6,000 bed RFP will likely end up being fee-based development, which takes one of his previously expected catalysts off the table. 4. Atlassian (TEAM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Edward Parker saying after a "great run" of over 100% in the last 12 months, the risk-reward on the stock has turned more "balanced." 5. Ericsson (ERIC) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at New Street. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Impacts of Bank of America decision manageable for First Data, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Timothy Willi sees three potential outcomes as Bank of America (BAC) reportedly weighs the exit of its joint venture with First Data (FDC). The joint venture can be dissolved, the terms can be renegotiated more favorably for Bank of America, and/or Bank of America can acquire an increased ownership of the venture, Willi tells investors in a research note. The current agreement ends in June 2020 and any party wishing to terminate must give one year notice, the analyst adds. While he believes that each of these scenarios could be an incremental negative for First Data, the analyst thinks the impacts are either "manageable or immaterial" in the context of a combined Fiserv (FISV), First Data. Willi has a Market Perform rating on First Data.

SunPower (SPWR), SunRun (RUN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral as SolarEdge (SEDG) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Lee anticipating "volume tailwinds" in the second half of 2019 given the recent signs of strength in the sector's financing environment. 3. CNH Industrial (CNHI) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Chad Dillard saying he's turning positive on North America large agriculture. 4. U.S. Cellular (USM), Telephone and Data (TDS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Simon Flannery stating that he sees both stocks as "very attractively valued" with each down over 20% from their recent peak levels. 5.

BMO upgrades Bank of America to Outperform, sees 34% return potential
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham upgraded Bank of America to Outperform from Market Perform with an unchanged price target of $37. The stock closed Monday down 11c to $27.93. The analyst expects upward consensus estimates revisions and a "multiple re-rating" to drive 34% total return in the shares. Bank of America's current valuation multiple is 15% below its long-term average, Fotheringham tells investors in a research note. Further, even if the Federal Reserve cuts rates, positive earnings revisions from better fees, tax rates, provisions and buybacks should "more than offset" any related net interest margin dilution, contends the analyst.

Tesla focus to turn to margins, full-year after Q2 hurdle cleared, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said Tesla cleared a "major hurdle" with its stronger than expected Q2 deliveries and he has received many questions from investors about why shares were not up significantly more on Wednesday given the numbers that he views as "impressive across the board." He continues to think the biggest overhang is Tesla's ability to hit its full-year unit guidance of 360,000-400,000 units, which Ives still views as "an arduous task." Ives also thinks gross margins need to tick up and driving 20%+ gross margins will be another "key" issue. He keeps a Neutral rating and $230 price target on Tesla shares.

The analyst states that investor focus should now shift to the company's auto gross margins, cash flow, and sustainability of demand. Spak adds that Tesla did not affirm its guidance as it did when the company released its Q1 delivery numbers.

Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne noted Tesla deliveries came in stronger than expected but said he remains concerned about margin pressure due to price cut and mix, as well as second half demand given 2019 guidance was not reiterated and the lack of disclosure on the steady state of demand. Osborne maintained his Underperform rating and $140 price target on Tesla shares.

Tesla gross margin, free cash flow could surprise to upside, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch notes that Tesla delivered a record number of vehicles in Q2, while guiding to sequential production and delivery growth in Q3 and implying deliveries ahead of consensus estimates. Given the short thesis focused on anemic demand, the analyst believes this result directly contradicts that thesis, at least for the time being. Q2 production of 87,048 will likely be viewed as in line or a bit soft and leave the company open to criticism that it continues not to reach its targeted 1,000/day production run rate for longer than short bursts, he adds. Rusch turns his focus now to gross and free cash flow for the quarter. Should ASP be strong, which he believes is likely the case due to higher mix of EU shipments, the analyst expects gross margin and free cash flow to surprise to the upside. Rusch has an Outperform rating on the shares.
