Google updates Messages with Verified SMS, spam protection

Google announced in a blog post that it had two new updates to share related to providing users with a safer messaging experience. Verified SMS for Messages, rolling out today in a number of countries, will help you confirm the true identity of the business that's texting you, Google said. The feature works by verifying, on a per-message basis, that content is sent by a specific business. When a message is verified-which is done without sending your messages to Google-you'll see the business name and logo as well as a verification badge in the message thread. In addition to verifying the businesses sending you messages, the company said it is working on protecting users from spam in Messages. "With Spam protection for Messages, we warn you of suspected spam and unsafe websites we've detected," Google said. "If you see a suspected spam warning in Messages you can help us improve our spam models by letting us know if it's spam or not. You can also report spam texts in Messages at anytime, and block the conversation so you won't receive future messages." Reference Link

Alphabet upgraded to Buy at Stifel on forecast for durable growth
As previously reported, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt upgraded Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $1,525, up from $1,325. Earlier this year he had concerns around topline deceleration, when revenue growth fell below 20% in Q1, but trends subsequently re-accelerated, Devitt noted. He is also encouraged by Google's continued share gains of advertising dollars and sees a runway for healthy revenue growth, leading him to raise his long-term Properties revenue estimates. Devitt additionally said he views the streamlining of the management structure - with Sundar Pichai now the CEO of both Google and Alphabet - as a positive for investors. Though it is too early to determine what changes, if any, Pichai will bring to the Other Bets portfolio, the analyst thinks Pichai will keep investors in mind when considering the long-term portfolio objectives.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) upgraded to Buy at Stifel on forecast for durable growth with analyst Scott Devitt saying earlier this year he had concerns around topline deceleration, when revenue growth fell below 20% in Q1, but trends subsequently re-accelerated. 2. Facebook (FB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst John Egbert saying he is incrementally positive on the company's ability to sustain above-market ad revenue growth and maintain healthy levels of user growth and engagement following Facebook's Q3 earnings report. 3. Nike (NKE) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexandra Walvis saying Nike is on the cusp of a "sharp acceleration" in earnings growth. 4. Brown & Brown (BRO) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Michael Phillips saying the benefits of a better property and casualty, or P&C, pricing environment accrue directly to brokers, who collect commission on higher prices but don't pay claims. 5. Yeti (YETI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexandra Walvis saying she increased her estimates to embed upside from the company's new distribution relationship with Lowe's (LOW).

Alphabet shares attractively valued amid changing of guard, says Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner keeps his Buy rating, $1,450 price target, and his FY19/FY20 EPS views of $60.74 and $63.64 on Alphabet (GOOGL) after the company disclosed that founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have resigned from their respective posts. The analyst notes that while "regulatory storms" gather around the company amid Congressional and DoJ antitrust reviews, he still sees the stock as attractively valued based on its "rapidly expanding" business lines. Bonner also refutes the latest bear case that Amazon's (AMZN) entry into online advertising will be a "Google killer".

Jefferies small business survey points to 'more love' for internet leaders
Jefferies analyst Brent Thill said his survey of 600+ small-to-mid-size businesses indicated that 64% of respondents advertise on Facebook (FB), 50% on Google (GOOGL) and 43% on Instagram. However, usage of advertising on Amazon (AMZN) and Twitter (TWTR) improved in this year's survey compared to last year, noted Thill. When asked where they planned to allocate more ad dollars, 46% and 45% of SMBs pointed to plans to spend more on Facebook and Google, which Thill characterized as "more love for the leaders." Smaller ad businesses, such as Pinterest (PINS) and Snap (SNAP), were not as popular with SMBs, though this highlights a potential opportunity, added the analyst. The survey also showed that Intuit (INTU) leads the SMB market for accounting software, while the most popular web site builders are GoDaddy (GDDY) and Wix (WIX), but Thill believes all three remain underpenetrated. He continues to identify Facebook, Alphabet, Amazon, Wix, Intuit and GoDaddy as top internet picks.

F5 Networks downgraded two notches to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Tal Liani double-downgraded F5 Networks (FFIV) to Underperform from Buy with a price target of $140, down from $185. The analyst warns about pressure on the company's revenue growth amid a "secular shift in demand from appliance-based Application Delivery Controllers to software and cloud-based solutions", which has weighed on pricing and also brought in competition from VMware (VMW), Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG) along with content delivery network providers like Akamai (AKAM). Liani's new price target assumes a forward earnings multiple of 13-times, down from 16.5-times in his prior model.
