IAC losing its 'A+ student' in Match Group spinoff, says Jefferies

IAC's (IAC) separation proposal from Match Group (MTCH) is not a surprise, but investors want to know what this ultimately means for both companies, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a research note. IAC is losing its "A+ student" and will attempt to highlight its other assets while reviving the "wounded" Angi Homeservices (ANGI) business, contends Thill. Meanwhile, he believes Match's freedom will come at a cost, noting its leverage will likely head towards initial public offering levels. Post the spin, the analyst estimates the remaining IAC portfolio will be a low double-digit revenue grower with low double-digit margins. IAC has historically underperformed the market from the time of a spin announcement to spin completion, says Thill. The analyst, who has a Buy rating on IAC with a $300 price target, adds that's he a buyer of Match shares on weakness. The stock may see pressure in the near-term as over 200M shares will come to market, but the fundamental story "remains one of the best in Internet," contends Thill. Shares of Match are down 3% to $74.07 in afternoon trading while IAC is up 1.5% to 228.35.

Buy
Angi Homeservices price target lowered to $11 from $13 at Needham
Needham analyst Brad Erickson lowered his price target on Angi Homeservices to $11, saying the company's Nextdoor traffic deal looks like a "band-aid" amid "bleeding sentiment" and indications of more competitive pressure from Google (GOOGL) in the home services vertical. The analyst also lowers his FY20 EBITDA view to $251.6M from $258M on expectation of higher projected traffic spending, but keeps his Buy rating on the stock to reflect the continued strong monetization of HomeAdvisor.

Deutsche upgrades Match Group to Buy on 'untarnished' fundamentals
Deutsche Bank analyst Kunal Madhukar upgraded Match Group (MTCH) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $91, down from $93. Despite a "strong" quarter and guidance raise, Match shares have been sinking since the company reported Q2 results, Madhukar tells investors in a research note. The analyst, while admitting there is potential for near-term trading dislocation and the specter of increased supply once IAC (IAC) decides to spin off Match, believes the stock has overacted to the downside from the launch of Facebook (FB) Dating and the Federal Trade Commission lawsuit against Match.com. Match Group's business fundamentals "remain untarnished," and if anything, are stronger after Tinder began offering consumers more payment choice on Android, Madhukar contends. Nomura Instinet this morning also upgraded Match Group. The stock in premarket trading is up 4%, or $3.17, to $77.60.

Match Group upgraded to Outperform at Oppenheimer
As previously reported, Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein upgraded Match Group (MTCH) to Outperform from Perform, with a price target of $89. The analyst notes that the stock is down 27% from its highs on an overall correction in momentum names, confusion surrounding a likely debt transfer as part ofthe spinoff from IAC (IAC) and concerns over the FTC lawsuit. Helfstein is now less concerned about competition from Facebook (FB) Dating, and highlights that 3P download data shows an acceleration in Tinder and localized offerings. Lastly, his survey work indicates that only 44% of U.S. singles are currently using an online dating product, suggesting material growth in overall usage.

IAC still has material value to unlock after Match spin decision, says Benchmark
After IAC (IAC) announced that the company has proposed a full spinoff of Match (MTCH), Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos said this was the decision he had viewed as the likeliest outcome of the strategic spin review. Though the company is opting not to spin off ANGI Homeservices (ANGI), he thinks it should also experience some "modest, sustained flow-through benefits" and said IAC will have more "firepower to support the brand." The analyst, who still sees material value to unlock for IAC, keeps a Buy rating on its shares and does not have ratings on Match Group or ANGI shares.

Citi analyst Nicholas Jones started Angi Homeservices (ANGI) with a Neutral rating and $9.50 price target. Risk of an economic downturn, the company's ability to shift consumer behavior, and the threat of Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) Google remain risks to Angi's business, Jones tells investors in a research note.

IAC spinoffs could unlock $3B in value at current levels, says Cowen
Cowen analyst John Blackledge explored the potential of IAC (IAC) spinning off its Match Group (MTCH) and Angi Homeservices (ANGI) stakes and he thinks it could occur around Q3 earnings and be effective mid to late next year. The analyst estimates IAC standalone will emerge with a $5B equity value and could unlock another $3B in value at current levels. Blackledge reiterated his Outperform rating and $315 price target on IAC shares.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Match Group (MTCH) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet and to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank. 2. Uber (UBER) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Itay Michaeli saying the company's upcoming Q3 results should bring an acceleration in revenue growth and swing investment sentiment more favorably. 3. Arconic (ARNC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Seth Seifman saying he sees a "compelling" risk/reward profile following the stock's 8% decline in the past two weeks. 4. JetBlue (JBLU) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with analyst Daniel McKenzie saying competitive capacity looks manageable at this point, but notes that his upgrade is likely "early," given IT initiatives that don't become material to revenue until the first quarter of 2020. 5. E-Trade (ETFC) and Moody's (MCO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
