Wells Fargo upgrades VMware to Outperform, boosts price target to $180
Wells Fargo analyst Philip Winslow upgraded VMware to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $180 from $140. Investors have been concerned that growing interest in deploying containerized applications into Kubernetes-centric environments will eventually reduce customer demand for VMware's virtualization-centric product portfolio, Winslow tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, believes the recent acquisitions of Bitnami, Heptio, and Pivotal Software, combined with the release of VMware Tanzu, positions VMware to emerge as the leader in the market for Kubernetes-based, multi-cloud platform solutions. He believes VMware can sustain double-digit revenue growth for at least the next five years versus consensus expectations for a deceleration in growth to 10.0% in fiscal 2021 and 8.5% in fiscal 2022.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ericsson (ERIC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Michael Walkley saying since the Q2 earnings report, Ericsson has announced deals with Nex-Tech, RINA, and KDDI, demonstrating continuing 5G momentum. 2. VMware (VMW) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Philip Winslow saying investors have been concerned that growing interest in deploying containerized applications into Kubernetes-centric environments will eventually reduce customer demand for VMware's virtualization-centric product portfolio. 3. Tradeweb Markets (TW) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Jeremy Campbell saying recent weakness in the shares "seems largely technical," which presents an "attractive upside opportunity." 4. Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Christopher Carey saying the bar on the company's earnings consensus may be "too low." 5. Philip Morris (PM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Lisa Lewandowski citing the suspended merger discussions with Altria (MO) amid the heightened risk for U.S. vaping category following reports of lung health concerns. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Buy
VMware assumed with a Buy rating at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill assumed coverage of VMware with a Buy rating with a price target of $180, down from $198. The analyst last night assumed coverage of the Software industry and adjusted some of his ratings to be more defensive in light of valuation and macroeconomic concerns. However, he remains positive on the industry and believes that the fundamentals of businesses in the space are "very strong."

CIOs see continued pressure on IT budgets in 2020, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analysts Katy Huberty, James Faucette and Keith Weiss noted that rising economic uncertainty has been reflected in the firm's past several CIO surveys, with 2019 overall IT budget growth expectations falling for 4 straight quarters. In keeping with that trend, 53% of the CIOs surveyed by the firm expect lower IT budget growth in 2020 and their composite initial read on 2020 IT spending calls for a 100 basis points growth deceleration, the firm's U.S. tech team stated in a note to investors. Among those surveyed, Amazon (AMZN) and Microsoft (MSFT) are seen as having taken over the lead in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning while IBM (IBM) "maintains strong mind share," the analysts said. The team continues to favor companies they see as well positioned for key secular trends with good valuation, such as Microsoft, Adobe (ADBE) and Salesforce (CRM), while they are more cautious on legacy players at risk of losing share as organizations move to the cloud, like Symantec (SYMC) and VMware (VMW).

Atlantic Equities starts Square with Underweight rating, $55 price target
Atlantic Equities analyst Kunaal Malde initiated coverage of Square (SQ) with an Underweight rating and $55 price target. The shares closed Friday at $61.84. Square's core business is decelerating and the mix shift to consumer payments increases uncertainty, Malde tells investors in a research note. The company's core merchant acquiring yields are too high versus peers that are increasingly competing with combined hardware/software platforms, adds the analyst. Further, he points out that PayPal's (PYPL) Venmo is regaining ground on Square's Cash App. Malde this morning also initiated coverage of FIS (FIS) with an Overweight rating as well as Fiserv (FISV) and Jack Henry (JKHY) with Neutral ratings.

FIS upgraded to Overweight at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst Josh Beck upgraded FIS to Overweight from Sector Weight, with a $175 price target. The analyst believes eCom and B2B initiatives could upscale growth and drive a positive re-rating. Further, he sees the company as strategically positioned for sustainable merchant share gains, B2B monetization, and accretive capital allocation with room for modest FI cross-sell.
