JPMorgan upgrades 'increasingly compelling' Snap to Overweight from Neutral
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth upgraded Snap to Overweight from Neutral with a price target of $20, up from $17. The stock in premarket trading is up 2% to $14.33. Following a 20% pullback from recent highs and last night's Q3 results that "showed more encouraging trends," Snap shares are "increasingly compelling," Anmuth tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Snap's platform and business have both "improved dramatically over the past several quarters." Daily active users have now increased for three straight quarters, accelerating to 13% growth in Q3, while daily time spent continues to run at 30-plus minutes per user, Anmuth points out. Further, the analyst thinks Snap is at an "inflection point" with positive EBITDA for the first time in Q4.

Hold
Snap upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin upgraded Snap to Hold after its Q3 earnings beat, saying that based on its Q4 EBITDA guidance, she now expects the company to reach breakeven free cash flows in Q1 of 2020. The analyst notes that the company has "met its promise" to reduce costs and drive margin expansion, while its $1.1B convertible debt issuance in August has added to its balance sheet strength. Martin further cites Snap's improved revenue trajectory with a "growing number of 'always on' advertisers".

Snap shares should be bought on post-earnings weakness, says Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Mark Zgutowicz reiterates his Buy rating and $21 price target on shares of Snap following the company's Q3 report, stating that he would be a buyer on any weakness in the shares today. Snap's outlook remains "stellar" in terms of both product and demand and he suspects the company's Q4 guidance will prove conservative, Zgutowicz tells investors. Beyond the upcoming holiday quarter, management remains focused on executing and he predicts "a long consistent trajectory ahead," the analyst added.

Slack overhang from Microsoft competition should dissipate, says William Blair
After hosting investor meetings with Slack Technologies (WORK) management, William Blair analyst Bhavan Suri has "increased confidence in the story." While there was plenty of focus on the competitive environment with Microsoft (MSFT) and its Teams offering, much of the conversation also focused on the company's internal growth initiatives, its ability to continue winning large enterprise customers, its customer acquisition strategy, and the path to free cash flow breakeven, Suri tells investors in a research note. Management views Slack as having a different value proposition than Teams, says the analyst. Although the Microsoft overhang may remain with the stock for the next couple of quarters, it should dissipate over time as the company continues to execute and showcases its ability to win customers that are also using Office 365 for other functions, Suri contends. He believes Slack is well positioned long-term to continue "winning in the space" and sees a "long growth runway" for the company. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Outperform
Microsoft assumed with an Outperform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Alex Zukin assumed coverage of Microsoft with an Outperform rating with a price target of $160, up from $153. The analyst believes that the company is "best positioned to outperform" over the next several years as it becomes a "strategic partner" to digital transformations among large enterprises, with mission-critical capabilities of its key portfolio assets - Azure and Office365. Zukin adds that Microsoft's Q1 revenue and earnings should see a "typical" period of outperformance, as he raises his FY20 EPS view by 6c to $5.21 and sees expectations of a 55% Azure growth next year as "reasonable".

Microsoft partners look to have finished ahead of plan, says Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Ari Terjanian said his checks suggests Microsoft partners finished ahead of plan in the company's fiscal first quarter and they are modeling Productivity and Business Processes and Intelligent Cloud results that are ahead of consensus. Feedback on the More Personal Computing segment is more mixed at partners, with strength in Win10 migrations and M365 upgrades seen being offset by some headwinds in PC and gaming, added Terjanian, who reiterated his Buy rating on Microsoft shares.

High growth software valuations to contract further, says Jefferies
High growth software valuations are now trading above terminal M&A multiples, suggesting we still have more room for multiple contraction, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a research note. As such, the analyst expects the short term correction will continue "given multiples remain elevated even with last week's correction." Thill favors platform names with attractive growth and reasonable valuations like Microsoft (MSFT), Salesforce (CRM) and Intuit (INTU). He also favors names like SailPoint (SAIL), Zuora (ZUO), and Varonis (VRNS). The analyst believes these names have the potential for revenue reacceleration over the next year.

Ad spending across major internet platforms remained healthy in Q3, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Andy Hargreaves says that despite signs of softness from large ad agencies, he believes ad spending across the major internet platforms remained healthy in Q3. The analyst expects positive results out of Facebook (FB) and results from Alphabet (GOOGL) that are largely in line with expectations. Feedback was more mixed around Twitter (TWTR), but not consistent enough to prompt a change to his estimates. Hargreaves continues to recommend owning Alphabet and Facebook.

The analyst believes the company's focus on privacy, data security, messaging , and other product improvements will continue to weigh on margins but he thinks it is likely embedded in investor expectations and consensus estimates. Sebastian reiterated his Outperform rating and $230 price target on Facebook shares.

Jefferies selective on Internet into Q3, most positive on Alphabet and Facebook
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill, who is "generally positive" on Internet sector fundamentals, tells investors to remain selective ahead of Q3 earnings. The analyst is most bullish on Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), Expedia (EXPE), and Wix.com (WIX). He remains underweight TripAdvisor (TRIP), Shutterstock (SSTK), and Endurance (EIGI). Thill is most positive on Alphabet and Facebook. Alphabet's setup is better in the second half of the year relative to the first half due to easier comps, healthy core advertising, momentum in Google Cloud, and expanded hardware line-up ahead of the holidays, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He also likes Facebook's setup due to easier second half comps, recent product innovation on Instagram Commerce, and improvements to the core Facebook app. In e-commerce, Thill is a buyer of Amazon.com (AMZN) on any pullback. In travel, he like Expedia (EXPE) over Booking Holdings (BKNG). The analyst also views the recent selloff in Match Group (MTCH) shares as a buying opportunity.
