Oppenheimer 'encouraged' by Nike's 'healthy' change in leadership

After catching up with management to discuss Nike's CEO transition, Oppenheimer analyst Brian Nagel says that while he is still "a bit perplexed" by the exact timing of the announcement, he came away from his conversation "decidedly encouraged" that the shift and enhancement within the ranks of senior leadership at the company are thoughtful and will help to drive a continued, digitally driven transition at the brand. The analyst continues to recommend Outperform-rated Nike as a top pick within his expansive Consumer Growth & e-commerce coverage, upon prospects for continued outsized sales growth and margin expansion and a still accommodative share valuation.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Nike (NKE) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Robert Ohmes saying that he expects the "accelerated democratization" of the brand to offset the broader future challenges around "significant" third-party retail store closures and global stagnation in "performance" footwear/apparel. 2. Western Digital (WDC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Ananda Baruah citing his findings that flash memory average selling prices are set to increase starting in the September and December quarters while also sustaining those increases in 2020, along with expectations of strong hyperscale HDD demand next year. 3. Varian Medical (VAR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Sean Lavin saying Varian shares have pulled back in recent weeks and now trade in line with the comp group. 4. Xilinx (XLNX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet with analyst David Wong saying many risks remain for U.S. semiconductor companies, including uncertainties related to U.S./China trade issues and U.S. action against Chinese companies such as Huawei. 5. HP Enterprise (HPE) upgraded to In Line from Underperform at Evercore ISI with analyst Amit Daryanani saying he is incrementally more positive on cash flow resiliency, the Cray acquisition, recent data points that indicate H3C is performing better than other OEMs in China, and valuation.

Nike price target raised to $112 from $105 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti raised his price target for Outperform-rated Nike to $112 from $105, saying accelerating global revenue trends and better SG&A leverage should translate to accelerating EPS upside through FY20 and into FY21. Binetti calls Nike's innovation pipeline "the strongest we've seen in years."

Nike new CEO 'has large sneakers to fill,' says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Christopher Svezia notes that John Donahoe will succeed Mark Parker as President and CEO of Nike at a time when the company is leading consumer industry innovation and shares are at all time highs. Donahoe will have "large sneakers to fill" in January 2020 in taking over responsibilities from Parker, who implemented the successful Triple Double and Consumer Direct Offense strategies that have kept Nike far ahead of the competition while expanding the athletic footwear and apparel market and driving consumer industry innovation, he contends. Overall, Svezia believes Donahoe appears to be "a formidable choice" to lead Nike and may help further accelerate its digital and general market dominance. He has an Outperform rating and $100 price target on the shares.

ServiceNow new CEO well-suited for next growth phase, says Cowen
Cowen analyst J. Derrick Wood noted ServiceNow (NOW) announced its CEO would be leaving to be CEO of Nike (NKE) and that ex-SAP (SAP) CEO Bill McDermott will take his place. The company also preannounced its Q3 results, beating estimates on billings growth and raising guidance on the high-end. The analyst noted the CEO change was a surprise but he believes McDermott's skill set should be well-suited for the company's next growth phase. Wood reiterated his Outperform rating and $315 price target on ServiceNow shares.
