eBay price target raised to $46 from $42 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley raised his price target for eBay to $46 from $42 citing last night's "strong" Q2 results. Although gross merchandise volume was was flat year-over-year excluding currency, which was largely anticipated based on third party data, revenue was up 4%, modestly above the Street on continued growth in Promoted Listings, Walmsley tells investors in a research note.

eBay price target raised to $50 from $45 at Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos said eBay reported "another quarter of underwhelming" gross merchandise volume, but the magnitude of the tailwind from promoted listings and intermediated payments drove a slight revenue beat and allowed management to maintain its organic, currency neutral revenue growth guidance. The analyst, who raised his price target on eBay shares to $50 from $45 following the earnings report, noted that his valuation does not factor in any asset sales, which he estimates could represent upwards of $10 per share in added value. Kurnos keeps a Buy rating on eBay shares.

The analyst adds that he found the company's answers about the implications of Facebook's (FB) Libra cryptocurrency efforts encouraging in its potential to reduce the transaction costs on eBay's platform.

Wells says Nielsen restatement could be positive for Monster, tobacco stocks
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog noted that Nielsen (NLSN) just announced that it will restate data to address serious issues with its calculation methodology in the convenience store channel related to projections it applied to independent c-stores. The restated data, to be released on August 20, is expected to improve cigarette and energy drink trends and she views this as a positive for tobacco stocks and Monster Beverage (MNST). Publicly traded companies in the tobacco space include Altria Group (MO), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Philip Morris (PM).

Cigarette data from Nielsen 'dire,' industry data also 'very bad,' says Citi
Citi analyst Adam Spielman noted that Nielsen reported earlier today that cigarette industry volumes fell 11.2% in the four weeks ended May 18, noting that shares of Altria (MO), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Imperial (IMBBY) all fell following the "dire" data. Volumes in MSAi, the industry database that he regards as much more reliable than Nielsen, were down 6.4% in the same period, which Spielman said "is still a very bad figure, but it is a lot, lot better than the Nielsen one." Looking ahead, the analyst said he expects "gradually less bad" volumes in Nielsen in the rest of the year, though he noted that Altria has said it expects industry volumes to fall about 4%-5% this year and he forecasts a decline of about 6%. In late afternoon trading, Altria shares are down 4.5%, British American has declined over 4% and Philip Morris (PM) is down 5%.

Herzog reiterates an Outperform rating and $100 price target on the shares.

Cascend downgrades four rails on weakening intermodal traffic
Cascend Securities downgraded four names in the rail space, CSX (CSX), Norfolk Southern (NSC), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Union Pacific (UNP), to Hold after three years at Buy. Intermodal traffic is down since February, and it doesn't look like a "pause," Cascend tells investors in a research note. Further, industrial equipment imports into the U.S. has suddenly declined sharply, adds the firm, which notes that CSX last night called the economic backdrop "puzzling."

Red Hat closing probably earlier than most expected, says Stifel
Stifel analyst David Grossman said IBM's (IBM) closing of its Red Hat (RHT) acquisition probably came earlier than most expected, adding that IBM will report standalone Q2 results next week, on July 17, and than will provide an update including Red Hat on a webcast scheduled for August 2. IBM is set up as a defensive holding with two potential catalysts, namely continued improvement in its core infrastructure services business and demonstrated success in leveraging Red Hat, said Grossman, who keeps a Buy rating and $169 price target on IBM shares.

IBM showing growth 'in all the right places,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted that IBM's Q2 revenue was "just in-line," but she said the company is showing growth in "all the right places" as the segments aligning with its strategy of helping customers digitally transform to cloud and cognitive enterprises were strong. Cloud & Data Software constant currency revenue growth accelerated to 5% and Global Business Services delivered revenue and margin expansion for another quarter, noted Huberty. The analyst, who added that she thinks the company's tone on the earnings conference call "seemed bullish," does not have a rating on IBM shares.

The analyst believes that the overall consensus for 2020 revenue is "still too low" since the "process control intensity" was flat in 2018 despite the strong memory investment last year, and he expects KLA-Tencor to gain WFE market share.

KeyBanc analyst Weston Twigg raised his price target for KLA-Tencor to $149 from $143 after the company posted "good" Q3 results with mixed Q4 guidance. The analyst notes that product mix and its Orbotech acquisition are impacting near-term margins, but demand is expected to improve through the year, and it suggested that its prior combined target model is achievable. Twigg continues to view KLAC as very well positioned relative to peers as its logic and foundry customers build out 10/7nm capacity. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.
