Spending trends favorable for Logitech, unfavorable for GoPro, says Citi
After surveying 75 retail and electronics stores in U.S. throughout June to inquire about promotions and sell-through, Citi analyst Asiya Merchant says spending trends are favorable for both Logitech (LOGI) and Corning (GLW) and unfavorable for GoPro (GPRO). Across categories, TVs stood out as the category most likely to be the top selling consumer electronics product and highest category to exceed sales expectations, while digital cameras are least likely to be a top seller and most likely to miss, Merchant tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes video gaming accessories trends are positive for Logitech while digital camera trends are negative for GoPro. The digital camera market is at historical lows, contends Merchant. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Logitech shares with a $46 price target. She also lowered her price target for Neutral-rated iRobot (IRBT) to $95 from $100 to reflect the 25% tariff levied on robotic vacuums. Merchant adds that the survey yield "mixed" results for robotic vacuums.

iRobot price target lowered to $75 from $96 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen lowered his price target on iRobot shares to $75 from $96 after the company reported mixed Q2 results and lowered its 2019 revenue and earnings expectations, citing the 25% tariffs on Chinese-made products that have been put into effect by the U.S. iRobot has a robust product pipeline that will be a tailwind for revenue growth in 2020, but it will continue to be impacted by tariff costs until a China/U.S. trade settlement or until the company can shift more of its manufacturing, said Jensen, who keeps a Neutral rating on the stock.

New Shark RVC could intensify iRobot's competitive environment, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Mark Strouse notes that Shark's website includes a soon-to-be-released robotic vacuum cleaner that includes many of the same features as iRobot's Roomba i7 series, at a significantly lower price. While the analyst awaits initial customer reviews of the new product, he believes the offering may weigh on sentiment for iRobot somewhat. Strouse believes it is likely the new product will be available in time for the key holiday season, presenting potential risk to iRobot's market share in the U.S. The analyst has a Neutral rating on iRobot's shares.

iRobot upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Sidoti
Sidoti analyst Frank Camma upgraded iRobot to Buy from Neutral and maintained an $83 price target saying valuation is "compelling. Camma believes tariff and competition concerns are overdone. He expects the company to produce some robotic vacuum cleaners in Malaysia by the end of the year, which should mitigate future tariff increases. Further, the analyst expects iRobot to face additional competition, but said the company spends aggressively on R&D, selling, and marketing, which will allow it to maintain its lead in the category.

HP Enterprise price target lowered to $19 from $23 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Ananda Baruah lowered his price target on HP Enterprise to $19 after its Q3 results, saying the "macro crosscurrents" had an impact on the company's revenues. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on the stock however, stating that the quarter saw "strong" operational EPS and free cash flow despite the "challenging" revenue environment. Baruah also contends that HP Enterprise will get an upside catalyst from improved visibility in FY20 when it begins in November, particularly if the company's "next-generation applications and Edge computing manifest."

Argus analyst Jim Kelleher upgraded HP Enterprise to Buy with a price target of $18 after its Q3 earnings beat and raised FY19 guidance delivered earlier this week. The analyst notes that the company is facing "top-line challenges" but its positive earnings comparisons imply an "improving" sales mix. Following a multi-year period of underperformance, Kelleher also contends that HP Enterprise is offering "unrecognized value" thanks to its stronger operating model going forward.
