Lyft profit call 'ushered in' favorable competitive environment, says SunTrust

SunTrust analyst Youssef Squali noted that Lyft (LYFT) said at the WSJ Tech Live conference that it forecasts being adjusted EBITDA profitable by Q4 of 2021, which is ahead of analysts' existing expectations. By putting "an explicit stake in the ground" on profitability, Lyft "has ushered in a new favorable competitive environment in ride sharing across the U.S.," contends Squali. He thinks working toward this goal should translate into less pricing discounts and driver incentives, which he sees being positive to both Lyft and Uber (UBER). Squali has a Buy rating and $75 price target on Lyft shares.

Ads could add revenue, boost driver pay for Uber and Lyft, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley said he does not think advertising is a near-term focus for the publicly-traded rideshare companies, but he sees rideshare advertising as one way to increase effective wages for drivers and add new higher margin revenue streams for the companies. In the event that Uber (UBER) and Lyft (LYFT) do integrate advertising into their platforms, he sees a $2B U.S. advertising opportunity for Uber, which would move up his 2023 adjusted net revenue estimate by 11%. Lyft, which can't pursue in-app food delivery advertising in the way Uber could, might get a 9% boost to 2023 net revenue via advertising, estimated Walmsley. Meanwhile, he thinks full-time drivers could add almost $2 per hour to wages through rideshare advertising, the analyst added. Walmsley has Buy ratings on Uber and Lyft.

Lyft profitability comments may mark sentiment turning point, says Needham
Needham analyst Brad Erickson noted Lyft's (LYFT) management, while presenting at a Wall Street Journal hosted event, guided to EBITDA profitability by the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, which is one year ahead of expectations. He said this reinforces his view that rival Uber's (UBER) Rides' EBITDA profitability is not being given full credit. Uber's EBITDA breakeven likely appears further out than Lyft's, but "today marks a potentially pivotal data point around investors changing their view and realizing that mobility platforms can and will make money someday," contends Erickson. He has a Buy rating and $50 price target on Uber shares.

B. Riley FBR downgrades James River Group to Sell on Uber termination
James River Group Holdings (JRVR) disclosed last night that it plans to cancel all policies issued to its largest customer, Uber (UBER) commercial auto business Raiser LLC, effective December 31, 2019, due to unfavorable loss experience, B. Riley FBR analyst Randy Binner tells investors in a research note. While the reserve charge is manageable, concern around reserve adequacy is likely to remain an overhang on James River shares given the termination of the Uber relationship, a "significant move," says Binner. The analyst believes James River shares "will re-rate to a lower multiple to book value." He downgraded the stock to Sell from Neutral and cut his price target for the shares to $40 from $45.

Uber price target lowered to $50 from $52 at Needham
Needham analyst Brad Erickson lowered his price target for Uber to $50 from $52, but tells investors in a research note that he is "no less positive" on his time acquisition thesis longer-term and $130 bull case. While he suspects near-term deceleration makes near-term stock appreciation challenging, heading towards bookings re-acceleration in 2020, Erickson says the bear case gets pretty thin with valuation already attractive. The analyst maintains a Buy rating.

James River cancellation negative for Uber 'on the surface,' says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post says James River Group (JRVR) ending early its insurance policies issued to Rasier LLC, a subsidiary of Uber Technologies (UBER), is a negative for Uber "on the surface." James River insures Uber drivers in 20 states and was the smallest of the four insurers that Uber works with in the U.S., Post tells investors in a research note. The news is a negative given the potential that the underwriting costs of Uber's business are proving to be higher than expected, says Post. However, the analyst does not anticipate a material change in Uber's insurance costs. Uber's business will likely switch to one of its other carriers, Farmers, Progressive (PGR) or Allstate (ALL), according to Post. Those three insurers are likely increasing their interest in and exposure to ridesharing and gig-economy insurance, increasingly competing for business, says Post, who thinks this could maintain or decrease gig-economy and rideshare insurance premiums over time. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Uber with a $53 price target.
