Alibaba unlikely to revise sales guidance at investor day, says Citi
Citi analyst Alicia Yap expects Alibaba's September 23 and 24 investor days to focus on new chairman and CEO Daniel Zhang's vision and strategy, the CFO's comments on investment strategy and margins, and progress and customer feedback on recommended feeds and Tmall 2.0 initiatives. The analyst believes the CFO is unlikely to revise Alibaba's fiscal 2020 revenue guidance, and instead will likely offer reassurance on "healthy" growth in core marketplace margins and on a disciplined approach to new investment initiatives. Yap keeps a Buy rating on Alibaba shares with a $233 price target.

Easing competition presents potential upside for Pinduoduo, says BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Joyce Ju said her proprietary price point checks on some products across Chinese e-commerce platforms, including Alibaba's (BABA) Taobao, support the assumption of a stabilized competitive landscape and less aggressive promotion in Q3. The easing price competition should give Pinduoduo (PDD) more budget flexibility and room for moderate margin upside in non-peak season, according to Ju, who raised her price target on the stock to $39 from $34. She maintains a Buy rating on Pinduoduo.

NetEase price target raised to $326 from $301 at Citi
Citi analyst Hillman Chan raised his price target for NetEase (NTES) to $326 from $301 saying he's positive on the sale of Kaola to Alibaba (BABA). The disposal signals NetEase's continuous focus on profitability and the additional funding to Cloud Music could make it more competitive versus Tencent Music (TME), Chan tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects investors to gradually assign value to NetEase's remaining non-gaming assets, like Cloud Music, and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

He expects upside in its ARPU and take rate during its expansion into the high-end market, Zhao noted.

Apple makes 'smart poker move' with Austin shift, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives notes that Apple (AAPL) announced that it will commit to building its redesigned Mac Pro in Austin, Texas after securing tariff exemption on a majority of its requests, including partially assembled main circuit boards and graphics cards which contain chips from Intel (INTC), Nvidia (NVDA), and AMD (AMD). The analyst believes "this is an example of smart and strategic balanced production" from Apple and should be viewed as a move in good faith heading into the December 15th possibility of the additional 10% tariff on the $300B of Chinese goods. On the supply chain, Ives thinks Apple is aggressively looking at alternative options within the supply chain around moving 5%-7% of iPhone production to India and/or Vietnam, away from China, which would in a best case scenario be ready to roll 18 months from now. The analyst believes the China overhang has resulted in a $20-$25 hit to Apple's stock, and would be a buyer of Apple stock. Ives reiterates an Outperform rating and $245 price target on the shares.

Mizuho checks indicate computer CPU and GPUs are trending better
Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh says his channel checks indicate computer CPU and GPUs are trending better in Q3 with new product launches, but also some pull-ins ahead of potential Q4 tariffs. The analyst believes Intel (INTC) is "opportunistically and aggressively" pricing its i3 processor, although he expects AMD (AMD) to pick up some share into year-end. In data center, Rakesh believes AMD's ramp could be slowed by price competition and testing. The analyst also remains positive on Western Digital (WDC) and Micron Technology (MU) into earnings, citing better pricing and PC trends. He maintains Buy ratings on Intel and Nvidia (NVDA, and a Neutral on rating AMD.

Nomura Instinet still cautious on semiconductors after Micron report
Micron Technology (MU) last week provided November quarter guidance for a 37% year-over-year decline in sales and a further drop in gross margin, to 25.5%, Nomura Instinet analyst David Wong tells investors in a research note titled "Little Evidence of Recovery Yet." Further, August global chip shipment data showed a continuing year-over-year decline in the mid- to high-teens range, adds the analyst. Wong remains cautious on the semiconductor and semiconductor equipment industry overall.

Morgan Stanley sees things getting 'more difficult' after Micron earnings miss
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore maintained an Equal Weight rating and $48 price target on Micron after the company reported its Q4 earnings results. Moore said in a note titled 'Micron Earnings expectations miss; we still see memory weakening next year' that he was "wrong to suggest the stock could trade up short term." He noted that things are likely to get more difficult from here, with limited upside, and added that he remained cautious on the memory cycle.

Rosenblatt ups Micron target to $80 from $60, says buy on today's selloff
Rosenblatt analyst Hans Mosesmann raised his price target for Micron Technology to $80 from $60 and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares following last night's results. The "decent" results indicate the memory semiconductor cycle is entering a recovery phase on depleted inventories at customers, cuts to supply are starting to pan out, and memory content is expanding into newer platforms, Mosesmann tells investors in a research note. The analyst, who admits the gross margin guidance is below expectations, finds it clear that the "cycle has turned." Profit taking the stock aside, Micron is now a stronger company in virtually all aspects of the business, says Mosesmann. He believes investors should be opportunistic on today's weakness in the shares. Micron in premarket trading is down 5%, or $2.60, to $46.00.

However, margin pressures remain, with gross margin expected to fall again in the November quarter, Wong tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Neutral rating on Micron shares.

Wells Fargo downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird
Baird analyst David George downgraded Wells Fargo to Neutral from Outperform. The analyst likes the new CEO choice but the macro headwinds of slow growth and low rates are real, and improving the earnings run-rate and efficiency will take time. He noted the shares have a nice run over the past month and he would be a buyer in the mid-$40's. George lowered his price target to $50 from $52 on Wells Fargo shares.

Wells Fargo upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus
Argus analyst Stephen Biggar upgraded Wells Fargo to Buy with a price target of $60 after the company named Charlie Scharf as its new CEO last week. The analyst is positive on Scharf's "impressive industry background" to improve Wells Fargo's financial performance, noting that he is a former protege of JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon. Biggar expects the new CEO to initially focus on addressing the company's regulatory issues which had stifled growth and working toward removal of the Federal Reserve's $2T asset cap imposed on the bank. The analyst adds that this removal should be a "strong catalyst" for Wells Fargo shares.

Large-cap banks aren't gaining deposit market share, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Ken Zerbe said he continues to hear the "false narrative" that large-cap banks must be gaining market share due to their superior technology, but he insists they are not and that small and mid-cap banks have consistently gained deposit market share over the last five years. Individual large-cap banks that have had the biggest deposit share gains include Goldman Sachs (GS), Ally Financial (ALLY) and Synchrony Financial (SYF), while mid-cap banks that have delivered the biggest gains in share of total deposits include First Republic (FRC), KeyCorp (KEY) and Huntington (HBAN), Zerbe tells investors. Large-cap banks that have seen the largest declines in their respective individual shares of total deposits include JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Citigroup (C), while deposit share losers among mid-cap banks include Comerica (CMA), Prosperity Bancshares (PB) and Zions (ZION), said Zerbe.
