Streaming heats up between Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, Barron's says

Barron's Eric Savitz interviewed tech analyst Rich Greenfield, who recently launched LightShed Partners, which will focus on TMT -- technology, media, and telecommunications. Asked why he is positive on Netflix (NFLX), despite how much it has spent on content and its difficulties becoming cash flow positive, Greenfield said, "I'm upbeat on streaming broadly... In the post-bundle world, there are more dollars available for Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+. And while Netflix has good penetration in the U.S., it is still in the early days in markets like India, Japan, and Korea. The global opportunity is tremendous and isn't being properly valued." On how Disney+ (DIS), which launches this week, and Apple TV+ (AAPL), which just launched, will do, Greenfield said, "They're opposites in strategy. Disney is relying heavily on catalog content. Apple has no catalog." On Disney+, he added, "Streaming is going to work for Disney. The question is whether they do it profitably, given what they need to invest in original programming. The bigger question is what they do with their legacy businesses." On Apple TV+, he added, "Apple is going to spend more on original programming in year one than Disney. Using the Apple installed base and giving it away to existing Apple-device buyers, at least for year one, seems like a pretty good on-road." Reference Link

Buy
Netflix to continue growing subscriber count at rapid rate, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould is keeping his Buy rating and $415 price target on Netflix after reviewing its latest 10-Q filing, which he claims to confirm a "number of positive trends". The analyst cites the positive free cash flow generated by the company in the latest quarter when excluding the increase in "content in development". Gould also notes that the streaming library per paid subscriber metric declined again, suggesting that less content is required to maintain the subscription. The analyst contends that Netflix can continue to grow its subs at a "rapid rate" given its international expansion despite the "increasingly competitive environment."

Netflix price target lowered to $446 from $451 at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst David Miller lowered his price target for Netflix to $446 from $451 while maintaining an Outperform rating on the shares. Netflix is tapping the high yield market for the tenth time in the last six years, Miller tells investors in a research note. The analyst reduced his fiscal 2020 estimates due to the expectation of higher interest expense as a result of the latest debt transaction. He notes, however, that the company has a history of using the bond market effectively.

Stephens starts Trade Desk at Overweight, touts model compared to Netflix, Roku
Stephens analyst Kyle Evans initiated coverage of Trade Desk (TTD) with an Overweight rating and $250 price target, stating that he believes investors should own the stock because the company has "a more distributed, defendable and profitable business model" than Netflix (NFLX) or Roku (ROKU) with fewer regulatory risks than Google (GOOGL) or Facebook (FB), although he added that the stock is "volatile and expensive." He sees the catalysts of connected TV tailwinds and international growth outweighing the risks of a premium multiple and the growth of ad-free streaming TV options, Evans added.

October app data suggest Netflix subscriber miss in Q4, says Evercore ISI
Following an analysis of October app data points for Netflix, Evercore ISI analyst Lee Horowitz says the company's global downloads grew around 2% in October, down modestly from September, as international growth slowed to 3% versus 6% in September. However, Netflix's U.S. download growth improved, to down 4% in October versus down 10% in September, as a growing film slate "seems to have bolstered the top of the funnel domestically," Horowitz tells investors in a research note titled "A Spooky Start for NFLX 4Q Downloads." The analyst, who cautions against reading too deeply into these results, says the October levels are consistent with "below-guidance" Q4 subscriber results. In addition, while Horowitz expects Martin Scorsese's The Irishman will benefit subscriber growth trends in November, he points out that a geographic analysis of download trends associated with El Camino suggest that U.S. dramatic films "may not materially move the subscriber growth needle in key international growth markets." The analyst keeps an In-Line rating on Netflix with a $300 price target.

Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould lowered his price target on Netflix (NFLX) to $415 after its Q3 results featuring a small miss and lower guidance in domestic subscriber adds, even though international adds were better than expected. The analyst notes that the company's competitive environment will get tougher in the coming month, but the competitive losses from "streaming wars" will be outweighed by the acceleration in transition from traditional TV to streaming services, keeping his Buy rating on the stock. Gould believes that many homes will have 3-4 streaming services, with Netflix and Disney (DIS) as "default" among them.

Disney price target lowered to $167 from $173 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Steven Cahall lowered his price target for Disney to $167 from $173 following the company's Q4 results, saying upside came from Media and Parks. With Parks fears assuaged, Cahall tells investors in a research note that eyes go back to DTC efforts and the upcoming Disney+ launch. Cahall says Disney is on the cusp of a major transformation, and while execution risk is pretty high, in the end he thinks content wins and Disney "has that in spades." He keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Morgan Stanley says survey shows increased consumer enthusiasm for Disney+
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said Disney's (DIS) strong Q4 results were driven by Studio outperformance and better than expected losses at the direct-to-consumer interactive segment as ESPN+ and Hulu subscribers continued to grow. In the Media Networks segment, subscriber pressure was offset by solid ad sales and lower expenses, Swinburne added. Disney also announced a global distribution agreement for Disney+ with Amazon (AMZN), noted the analyst, who said his firm's most recent consumer survey of U.S. broadband households showed an uptick in interest in the upcoming streaming service. After earnings, Swinburne reiterates his Overweight rating and $160 price target on Disney shares.

The analyst notes that next quarter's outlook may also be conservative given the expected revenue contribution from next month's launch of Disney+ (DIS) and Apple TV+ (AAPL). Jaluria further cites Akamai management's commitment to 30% operating margins in 2020, which he sees as "achievable".

Sonos rallies after DA Davidson calls 'natural acquisition target' for Apple
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte reiterates a Buy rating on Sonos (SONO) with a $20 price target following Alphabet's (GOOG, GOOGL) acquisition of Fitbit (FIT). The stock in early trading is up 82c to $14.28. The analyst sees Sonos as the most likely company he covers to have its shares rally from either an improvement in investor perception or a takeover. Sonos is the "best house" on the "bad block" of hardware companies, and is "adjacent to the mansion on the neighboring block, Apple (AAPL)," Forte tells investors in a research note. Similar to Apple, Sonos makes products that are superior to the competition, has an eye for design, and boasts a premium brand that enables it to sell its products at higher prices than others, the analyst says. Further, Forte believes that similar to Fitbit not getting proper credit for its healthcare-related efforts, Sonos does not get credit for its superior technology and premium brand. As such, he sees Sonos as a "natural acquisition target for Apple." Furthermore, while less obvious than Apple, Amazon (AMZN) could acquire Sonos to advance its connected home efforts, according to Forte. The analyst also thinks the company could go private given the "lack of appreciation by Wall Street."

The analyst cited its settlement with Apple (AAPL) and the potential for 2020/2021 5G modem/RF chips selling prices to move sharply higher and boost out-year estimates. He said shares continue to demonstrate a favorable risk/reward. Ramsey reiterated his Outperform rating on Qualcomm shares.

The analyst still keeps his Sector Perform rating on the stock to reflect the continued FTC overhang and potential Apple (AAPL) modem chip in the future.

Apple shares still have 'significant room to run,' says BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan noted that his recent talks with investors lead him to believe there is skepticism about incremental upside in Apple shares with the stock up 63% year-to-date and the S&P up 23%. However, his analysis suggests "history favors owning Apple especially after a weak cycle" and he expects material relative outperformance heading into the 5G cycle, leaving "significant room for upside" in the shares. Mohan maintains a Buy rating and $270 price target on Apple shares.
