AT&T stock already benefiting from activist involvement, Barron's says

AT&T 's board got an unwelcome surprise this past Monday, when a well-known activist investor decided to question the company's long-honed strategy but for investors, though, Elliott Management's new focus on AT&T is likely to have positive long-term benefits, Nicholas Jasinski writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Elliott's involvement boosted AT&T's shares 4.6% this past week alone, to about $38, the author notes. Reference Link

Equal Weight
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.

Outperform
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.

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.

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.
