Driver sues Uber over resistance to California gig worker bill, Reuters says

A driver for Uber (UBER) is suing the ride-hailing giant for misclassifying its drivers as independent contractors, hours after California lawmakers voted for a bill to reclassify thousands of those workers as employees, Reuters' Jonathan Stempel reports. The proposed class action suit, which was filed by Uber driver Angela McRay, appears to be the first since the state's senate passed landmark legislation that could have an impact on workers in many sectors, in addition to ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft (LYFT), Stempel says. California Governor Gavin Newsom supports the proposed measure, which would take effect on January 1, though it may undergo changes before it arrives on his desk, the author notes. McRay, a resident of Pittsburg, California who claims she has driven for Uber since November 2016, faulted the company for having "publicly stated that it intends to defy this statute" by continuing to not treat drivers as employees, the report says.

Overweight
Uber price target lowered to $53 from $57 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said Uber's new disclosure of ridesharing vs. Eats contributions gives more clarity around Uber's path to profitability and he is optimistic this disclosure will continue going forward. Based on his new bottom-up segment-level forecast for Rides and Eats, Nowak raised his FY19 adjusted EBITDA forecast by 5% and increased his FY20 adjusted EBITDA view by 15%, putting him ahead of Street expectations for both, he tells investors. Despite being bullish about Uber's ability to show investors improving profitability, Nowak lowered his Eats FY19 and FY20 bookings estimates by 3% and 7%, respectively, and also adjusted his primary valuation methodology, leading him to lower his price target for Uber shares to $53 from $57. Nowak keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

LOOP
Lyft, Uber price targets lowered at Loop Capital on AB5 legislation in CA
Loop Capital analyst Jeffrey Kauffman lowered his price target on Uber to $48 from $54 and on Lyft to $52 from $60, saying the companies' long-term earnings power is being reduced with AB5 legislation in California moving forward while effectively turning its "gig workes" into W2 employees with guaranteed wages and benefits. The analyst believes that ultimately, the companies will reach a concession that raises costs and will be passed on to consumers through higher price, resulting in some "negative demand elasticity". Kauffman keeps his ratings on Uber at Buy and Lyft at Hold.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dish (DISH) double upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Richard Prentiss saying following the recent pullback on investor concerns about the shift from a spectrum bank to a wireless operator, now is the "opportune time" to buy shares of Dish. 2. Lyft (LYFT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Guggenheim with analyst Jake Fuller saying improving U.S. ride hail competitive dynamics and Lyft's "surprising leverage to that trend" should allow the company to reach EBITDA positive in 2021 versus prior expectations of 2023. 3. Canopy Growth (CGC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global with analyst Brett Hundley saying Canopy shares have now "round-tripped themselves" year-to-date, and are down 7.4% compared to a 13.6% increase in the S&P 500. 4. Copel (ELP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Fernando Abdalla saying the company's cash flows are expanding in 2019 and its leverage coming down with the start-up of important greenfield projects. 5. VICI Properties (VICI) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Thomas Allen saying the stock has underperformed since the merger announcement between Eldorado Resorts (ERI) and Caesars Entertainment (CZR) on concerns that the deal will result in greater tenant risk, but he believes that it makes Caesar's rent "better covered by free cash flows" in a recession and that the underperformance is overdone.

Deutsche Bank starts Lyft at Buy, says shares may be bottoming
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley initiated coverage of Lyft with a Buy rating and $70 price target. The company reported "robust" Q2 results, and yet the stock has been weak around an early release from the initial public offering lockup, heightened regulatory uncertainty stemming from the California AB 5 legislation and concern this could spread nationally, a decreased appetite for unprofitable companies trading on revenue multiples, and concerns around whether or not ridesharing is a good business, Walmsley tells investors in a research note. However, he thinks Lyft shares may be bottoming. The bulk of the lockup pain is in the shares at this point, and fears around the California AB 5 impact are overblown, contends Walmsley. Further, he thinks there are barriers to scale in ridesharing. A "rational duopoly" in the U.S. makes Lyft a good business today, the analyst argues.
