The analyst believes that MasterCard's strong cyclical and secular trends are continuing, and that its "record" operating margins warrant a premium relative to the stock's historical average multiple.

Square reported 'notable' deceleration in GPV, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said the deceleration in gross payment volume, or GPV, growth reported by Square (SQ) this quarter was somewhat disappointing and "notable" given the strong U.S. consumer spending trends reported by other Payments players, including Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA). Combining this with the "deviation from Square's traditional beat-and-raise story" made him less positive about the report, although his calendar 2019 forecasts remain largely intact, said Faucette, who keeps an Equal Weight rating and $74 price target on Square shares.

DFAST results encourgaing for Wells Fargo, says UBS
UBS analyst Saul Martinez said the DFAST results from the Federal Reserve, reported after the close on Friday, were most encouraging for "those who didn't fare as well last year," like Wells Fargo (WFC). He thinks Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS) and State Street (STT) look like they have room to reach his forecasted capital returns and also said lower stressed losses at Citi (C) and JPMorgan (JPM) could suggest that the current SCB proposal may not lead to materially higher minimum capital requirements, added Martinez. However, he thinks there could be some downside to his capital return estimates for Capital One (COF), which he notes have been above consensus.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Goldman Sachs (GS) and Citi (C) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette. 2. Ambev (ABEV) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Lucas Ferreira saying the post-earnings share rally shows that investors are chasing good growth stories to play Brazil's economic recovery. 3. West Pharmaceutical (WST) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Derik de Bruin saying that over the course of the first half, the company addressed his prior concerns around organic revenue growth and product mix trends while also boosting its operating margins and generating higher free cash flows. 4. Union Pacific (UNP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities, while CSX (CSX) was upgraded to Neutral from Underweight. 5.

Goldman Sachs upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Brian Kleinhanzl upgraded Goldman Sachs (GS) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $260 from $225. The analyst, who also upgraded Citi (C) and Bank of America (BAC) today to Outperform, raised the Universal Bank group to Overweight from Market Weight as he believes the economic cycle will be extended following rate cuts from the Federal Reserve. Further, the current valuations for the group are attractive "as we are not as late cycle as feared," Kleinhanzl tells investors in a research note. He also expects rotation back to financial stocks after investors have reduced allocations to the group. Investors should position for better macro conditions with a focus on owning money center banks and select brokers, says Kleinhanzl.

The analyst maintains his Market Perform rating however, saying he continues to prefer Morgan Stanley (MS) to Goldman Sachs given the lower valuation of the former and continued risks around the 1MDB issues of the latter.

Tesla executive turnover notably high, 'not outlandish,' says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi, Jr. performed a detailed benchmarking analysis of executive turnover at Tesla (TSLA) and at comparable companies that are young, fast growing, and largely Silicon Valley based, including Snap (SNAP), Uber (UBER), Lyft (LYFT), Airbnb, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN). His analysis indicates that Tesla's annualized executive turnover level has been 27%, "notably higher" than the cohort average of 15%. With that said, the analyst notes that it is "not outlandish," with Snap at 24% and Lyft at 23%, which is nearly as high.

Uber quarter positive 'under the scorched-earth rubble,' says Barclays
For those investors looking "under the scorched-earth rubble," there are actually some positive things going on at Uber Technologies, Barclays analyst Ross Sandler tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Stripping out one-time initial public offering-related driver payments, core Rides adjusted net revenue accelerated to 20% year-over-year, says the analyst. He thinks "risk-seeking, opportunistic" investors should take advantage of any weakness into Uber's lock-up expiration. Sandler keeps a Buy rating on Uber with a $50 price target.

Yelp CFO departure another indication of possible sale, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte views the upcoming departure of CFO Lanny Baker as "another indication that Yelp (YELP) may be sold." Forte believes the company could be worth as much as $60 per share in a buyout. Yelp in afternoon trading is up 8%, or $2.93, to $37.76. Of the companies he covers, Forte says Yelp is the most likely to be sold given the low price of its shares, the involvement of an activist, and its strategic value to potential acquirers like Amazon.com (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Facebook (FB) or Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL). The analyst has a Buy rating on Yelp with a $48 price target.

First round of tariffs likely absorbed by Apple, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives does not believe Apple will pass the costs of the 10% tariff placed on $300B of Chinese goods by President Trump to U.S. consumers on the new smartphones hitting the market this September. All indications the analyst is seeing from the field and across the supply chain indicate the trifecta of smartphones will officially be released in the second week of September with pricing being very similar to last year's models. If the tariffs go ahead as planned this will reduce 2020 EPS by roughly 50c-55c based on his $12.80 estimate for the year, with Apple looking to absorb this first round of tariffs, he contends. However, Ives believes Apple is aggressively looking at alternative options within the supply chain in light of this "U.S./China UFC trade battle" around moving 5%-7% of iPhone production to India and/or Vietnam, away from China. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and a $245 price target on the shares.

China iPhone shipments July bounce back a positive for Apple, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Matthew Cabral notes that government data implies a big jump in July China Apple iPhone shipments, which rose 42% year over year in the month of July, despite a modest 3.5% year over year decline in the broader Chinese smartphone market. The analyst believes the bounce back is a positive for Apple and a "solid start" toward above-seasonal guidance for Q3, particularly against a backdrop of a slowing Chinese economy coupled with the re-escalation of trade tensions with the U.S. Nonetheless, Cabral points out that the trade overhang remains in focus as 10% U.S. tariffs approach. He reiterates a Neutral rating and a $209 price target on the shares.

Apple iPhone demand cycle looks stable heading into 2020, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives is bullish into Apple's future heading into 2020 and beyond, as the company is seeing stable demand despite the myriad of China challenges and macro swirls. With general nervousness around the Apple story and tech space in light of the U.S./China trade battle and worries around China demand/slowdown, his Asia checks continue to give him "confidence based on supply chain tea leaves that Cupertino is in the process of producing between 75M to potentially 80M iPhone 11 units heading into the September launch period." Ives reiterates an Outperform rating and a $245 price target on the shares.
