Estee Lauder expected to guide cautiously for FY20, says Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Caroline Levy said she believes Estee Lauder will report "solid" Q4 results on Monday, August 19, and she also expects the company to guide cautiously for FY20, following "its typical pattern." The analyst, who thinks Estee Lauder will set low expectations, and then likely over deliver, keeps an Outperform rating and $195 price target on the stock.

Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy raised her price target for Estee Lauder to $187 from $178 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. The analyst increased her Q4 estimates as she believes Estee can continue to gain share globally against the overall beauty category growing ~6%. For Q4, she expects outperformance to be driven by travel retail, skincare and China.

Estee Lauder price target raised to $205 from $180 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan raised his price target on Estee Lauder to $205 from $180 after raising his FY20 and FY21 sales and EPS expectations. His deep dive on Estee Lauder's cost structure makes him believe long-term expectations for 50 basis points of yearly operating margin expansion is conservative and he also views long-term sales growth of 6%-8% as reasonable, Astrachan tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating on Estee Lauder shares.

Amazon entrance to likely continue to depress Sally's multiple, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh notes that Amazon (AMZN) Business announced the launch of the Amazon Professional Beauty store and that he spoke with Sally Beauty (SBH) management. Given the exclusivity the BSG side of the business has with key brands, the analyst think announcement would have a minimal nearer-term impact on Sally's business. Nonetheless, Parikh believes Amazon's entrance and interest in the category will likely continue to depress Sally Beauty's multiple to even lower levels until the company can demonstrate the ability to return to positive comp growth on a sustainable base. For now, Ulta Beauty (ULTA) and Estee Lauder (EL) remain his top beauty picks. The analyst has a Perform rating on Sally Beauty's shares.

Diamond Offshore reinstated with an Underperform at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Chase Mulvehill reinstated coverage of Diamond Offshore with an Underperform rating and $5 price target, saying that while Diamond's strategy to differentiate through technology and exploit niche markets likely tops the offshore drillers under coverage, ultimately he says he "struggles" to arrive at sustainable free cash flow and valuation is challenged. Mulvehill tells investors in a research note that the opportunity for free cash flow is "short-lived," and says second quarter consensus estimates could be too high.

Needham remains cautious on Nvidia's near-term data center business
Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill keeps his Underperform rating on Nvidia after its Q2 results, saying that while the quarter topped earnings and revenue consensus thanks to the strong growth in gaming, expectations for the company's data center business remained "mixed". The analyst notes that the segment still experiences strength in external hyperscaler cloud demand, but internal hyperscaler demand remains muted. Gill adds that the data center business is set to gain from secular growth drivers longer term, but he is concerned by the near term potential amid limited visibility and increased macro uncertainty.

Nvidia price target raised to $170 from $165 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Richard Shannon maintained a Hold rating on Nvidia but bumped his price target to $170 from $165 following the company's Q2 beat and largely in-line Q3 guidance. In a research note to investors, Shannon says Nvidia's growth may struggle to get to 20% in the near term given Data Center, and with the stock trading at 27x FY20 EV/EPS, it is too rich given the geopolitical and macro risks.

SunTrust increasingly optimistic about Nvidia data center recovery
SunTrust analyst William Stein kept his Buy rating and $210 price target on Nvidia after its "solid" Q2 results, saying that its improved margins helped offset the weak hyperscale revenue. The analyst believes however that Q3 and Q4 will see acceleration in its "lone near-term problem" Data Center segment amid improving inventory trends. Stein maintains his long term bullish thesis on Nvidia and its "superior" positioning in gaming, server business acceleration driven by AI, and autonomous driving potential.

Nvidia earnings recovery should continue, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore attributes the sharp recovery in Nvidia's gross margins for the unexpected EPS beat in the October quarter. Gaming earnings look materially higher going forward and the company's earnings recovery should continue, said Moore, but he thinks that while gaming drives earnings for the most part, HPC and Cloud/Data Center are the key driver of the multiple. The analyst, who still isn't seeing clarity on when there will be an inflection in data center, keeps an Equal Weight rating on Nvidia shares, but raised his price target on the stock to $180 from $170 as he raised his estimates, mostly due to gross margin and bringing down opex assumptions.

Wynn Resorts gaming license removes key near-term risk, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst David Katz views the approval of the Encore Boston Harbor gaming license and associated fine as a positive for Wynn Resorts. The news removes a key near-term risk surrounding the company's domestic growth strategy, Katz tells investors in a research note. He expects a positive reaction to the shares and keeps a Buy rating on Wynn Resorts with a $170 price target.

Wynn Resorts price target raised to $157 from $146 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski raised his price target on Wynn Resorts to $157 from $146 following the company's Q1 results, though he noted that he expects the shares to trade modestly lower at the open on the heels of last night's report. Despite the headline "miss," Wieczynski said he thinks the factors driving the softness were well documented ahead of the report and he also believes the 33% increase in its quarterly dividend should "soften the damage." The company's shift in its marketing focus to capture a greater share of the mass gaming market appears to be working, said Wieczynski, who keeps a Buy rating on Wynn shares.

The meeting addressed key questions regarding the boundaries for capital allocation, and suggest that further acquisitions and new significant projects are unlikely, Katz tells investors in a research note titled "Some Wicked Good Capital Allocation." The analyst sees "meaningful upside" from current share levels.

Tegna upgraded to Outperform on accretive acquisitions at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI upgraded Tegna (TGNA) to Outperform from In Line with a $18 price target, up from $16. Analyst David Joyce believes the market is misinterpreting the price Tegna is paying for station acquisitions in the "impressive" Nextar Media (NXST) required station sale announced last week. Tegna is paying only 6.7x EBITDA after re-transmission rate resets, other synergies, and tax benefits, making it approximately 11% accretive, the analyst wrote in a note to investors. Joyce said Tegna can immediately step-up retransmission fee rates to their levels and Tribune Media (TRCO) stations it is acquiring and will benefit from accretion and diversify to the portfolio.

As previously reported, Stephens analyst Kyle Evans downgraded Tegna (TGNA) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target on the shares to $17 from $19 after the company agreed to acquire stations in Indianapolis and Columbus for $535M in cash from Dispatch Broadcast Group. While he said he likes the free cash flow accretion, increased scale and addition of an Ohio station ahead of the 2020 political cycle, Evans thinks current valuation and the growing scale make Tegna a less likely target for Apollo (APO).
