Apple price target lowered to $204 from $211 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi lowered his price target on Apple to $204 after its Special Event presentation, saying the company's announcements of new iPhones and Watch models were all in-line with expectations. The analyst also states that the Apple TV+ subscription terms were 2-times lowers than his estimate and should weigh on Apple's gross margins. Chokshi keeps his Hold rating on Apple.

Overweight
Apple TV+ pricing a positive catalyst for adoption, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee came out of Apple's (AAPL) event yesterday "largely positive," believing lowered pricing of the iPhone 11 relative to the XR could act as a positive driver for volumes in the entry level premium smartphone segment. Further, the analyst says "favorable pricing" for Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade makes him positive on the potential ramp of the new services. Apple TV+'s monthly subscription price of $4.99 is "quite attractive" relative to competitive services, which should be a positive catalyst for adoption as Apple scales up its original content over time to compete with Netflix (NFLX), Amazon's (AMZN) Prime Video and Disney (DIS), among others, Chatterjee told investors earlier in a research note. He kept an Overweight rating on Apple shares.

Apple TV pricing adds pressure to Netflix and Disney, says Imperial Capital
The $4.99 monthly price of Apple's (AAPL) TV+ adds pressure to both Netflix (NFLX) and Disney (DIS), Imperial Capital analyst David Miller tells investors in a research note. The price point took most analysts by surprise, as $4.99 is "far less" than what had been previously estimated going in to Apple's presentation, which was somewhere around the $9.00 level, according to Miller. In addition, while Apple's content lineup is not nearly as robust as that offered currently by Netflix , or what will be offered by Disney+, its lineup looked "fairly impressive," headlined by talent such as Jennifer Aniston, Samuel L. Jackson, Ron Moore, Aaron Paul, Oprah Winfrey, Octavia Spencer, and M. Night Shyamalan, Miller contends. However, he believes the market is too focused on price points rather than the "value" for that said price point. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Netflix shares with a $451 price target.

August China shipments dip ahead of Apple iPhone 11 launch, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Matthew Cabral says that Apple iPhone shipments in China fell 19.5% year over year in the month of August per MIIT "non-Android" data, worse than the 2.8% year over year drop in the broader Chinese smartphone market. But looking quarter-to-date, Q3 is up 5.2% year over year, which is a significant improvement versus the difficult start to the year and is tracking well toward Apple's above seasonal September guidance, he contends. The analyst believes the introduction of a triple-camera system on the Pro/Pro Max and the RMB700 price cut should help demand within China at the margin. However, Cabral views this year's feature upgrades as more incremental in nature and thinks they are unlikely to reverse the ongoing extension of replacement cycles, especially without a 5G iPhone until the second half of 2020. He reiterates a Neutral rating and $209 price target.

Netflix head start unlikely dented by Apple TV+, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Douglas Mitchelson notes that his Netflix (NFLX) thesis already presumes increased competition in the future and Apple (AAPL) is noteworthy as it certainly has a "terrific brand and global distribution platform." However, the analyst believes Netflix's 10-year head start, scale, breath of content and customer engagement is unlikely to be dented by an Apple TV+ subscription service with a relatively light content slate and no library content. In fact, Apple TV+ looks more like an HBO (T) or Showtime than a Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime (AMZN), he contends, adding that he continues to believe SVOD will not be a zero sum game. Lastly, Mitchelson would expect Apple TV+ would more likely displace a runner-up than the leader.

Apple focusing on presenting iPhone Pro as premium product, says Wells Fargo
Commenting on Apple's (AAPL) Tuesday event, Wells Fargo analyst Aaron Rakers notes that the company is focusing on presenting the iPhone Pro as a premium product. One of the biggest surprises was Apple's announced pricing for its Apple TV+ streaming service at $4.99/month versus Netflix (NFLX) $12.99 standard, Disney+ (DIS) $7.99, and HBO GO (T) $14.99, the analyst contends, adding that with a free 1-year Apple TV+ and Arcade subscription included with any new hardware purchase or upgrade, Apple is clearly focused on leveraging a subsidized pricing strategy to drive a user base as content expands. As Rakers thinks about the derivative read-though to his coverage of the NAND industry, the analyst believes that investors could be disappointed in Apple leaving its base NAND capacity point unchanged at 64GB. He reiterates a Market Perform rating and a $215 price target on Apple's shares.

Elliot's plan to accelerate AT&T shareowner value, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan notes that Elliott Management sent a letter to AT&T's board of directors that it has taken a $3.2B effective ownership stake in the company and has a share price target of $60-plus by the end of 2021. Elliott's four-part plan recommends increased strategic focus, improving operational efficiencies, a formal capital allocation framework, and improved leadership, he adds. The analyst believes AT&T has the ability to increase shareholder value by continuing to focus more on higher growth segments that are in line with our shared infrastructure thesis. Horan notes the company is already implementing many of Elliott's recommendations, but believes it can be more aggressive with cost reductions and asset sales. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $41 price target on the shares.

AT&T price target raised to $35 from $31 at Barclays
Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar raised his price target for AT&T (T) to $35 from $31 while keeping an Equal Weight rating on the shares. Activist Elliott Management is likely to have some impact on AT&T's strategic choices, with buybacks potentially being the most proximate, which should help close some of the company's valuation discount relative to Verizon Communications (VZ), Venkateshwar tells investors in a research note. However, while the analyst does not disagree with Elliott's take on the state of AT&T's business and some of its strategic choices, he believes that Elliott's "implicit assumptions driving some of its suggested solutions may be a bit too optimistic." Elliott suggests that AT&T should be more aggressive in monetizing larger assets such as DirecTV, but it is unclear who would buy this asset, adds the analyst.

Norilsk Nickel, Rio Tinto, Vale upgraded at Exane BNP Paribas
Exane BNP Paribas upgraded Norilsk Nickel (NILSY) to Outperform and also upgraded Rio Tinto (RIO) and Vale (VALE) to Market Perform as part of the broader research note, saying he prefers Norilsk Nickel to reflect the positive trends expected for base metals in the later part of the year. The analyst also attributes his rating change for Rio Tinto and Vale to valuation following the correction in their stock prices, even though he warns that the tightening of property developers' funding in China makes him cautious on the iron ore exposure. As part of the research note, BHP (BHP) was also downgraded to Underperform because of its "lowest free cash flow yield" in the analyst's coverage and its expected negative earnings growth until FY22.

Macquarie upgrades Vale to Outperform with 'peak uncertainty' behind company
Macquarie analyst Grant Sporre upgraded Valeto Outperform from Neutral with a 12-month price target of $14.40. Following the Brumadinho tailings dam failure, Vale has been the worst performer relative to its commodity peers, Sporre tells investors in a research note. After eight months, however, the company has been able to quantify the financial impact and has benefited from an iron ore windfall cash bonus, contends the analyst. As such, he believes "peak uncertainty" is now behind Vale with remediation costs quantified and iron ore production and shipments recovering.

Morgan Stanley cuts Tesla estimates after Q2 report, keeps $230 price target
Following Tesla's Q2 earnings report last week, Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas decreased his FY19 delivery estimate by about 2,000 to 345,000 units, lowered his full year auto gross margin forecast to 17.4% from 19.6% and cut his FY19 GAAP EPS estimate to ($8.94) from ($7.06). Jonas, who said his reduced gross margin and deliveries forecasts are offset by a lower CapEx forecast, keeps an Equal Weight rating and $230 price target on Tesla shares.

Tesla quietly making good progress on key initiatives, says Nomura Instinet
Tesla in recent weeks has made good progress on a few key initiatives "in a relatively quiet manner," Nomura Instinet analyst Christopher Eberle tells investors in a research note. These include multiple positive developments in China from a new tax credit and continued factory build out, the launch of an in-house insurance offering, and what appears to be an increasingly efficient fulfillment of the company's global order book, says the analyst. Eberle says this "low-controversy execution" is what he and many investors have hoped to see from Tesla for some time. He adds that if Tesla can continue to hit both operational and financial targets, he sees an opportunity to get more positive on the shares in the future. For now, though, Eberle keeps a Neutral rating on Tesla with a $270 price target.

Tesla demand in Europe steady so far despite fears, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives believes that heading into the next few months, the laser focus of investors around the Tesla story will be gauging Model 3 demand in Europe as thus far in Q3 he is seeing steady demand in the region, which should help neutralize some weakness seen out of China. The analyst continues to believe, based on his field work, that one of the epicenters of demand is in Norway for Model 3 with overall EV sales growing in the country by 40%-plus and a strong ramp expected over the next few quarters with Tesla leading the charge. But while Ives acknowledges that Europe demand thus far is a positive development for Tesla, he believes it does not change the broader demand and profitability worries he continues to have on the story. The analyst reiterates a Neutral rating and a $220 price target on the shares.

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.
