AMD, Marvell Gain Semiconductor Share In Q3

Susquehanna just released its quarterly report on the semiconductor industry, and the latest numbers indicate Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) and Marvell Technology Group Ltd (NASDAQ: MRVL) have been the two big winners of the past quarter.

Susquehanna’s PC-SIGnals report analyzes data from thousands of desktops, laptops, GPUs and SSDs to track semiconductor industry trends.

According to analyst Christopher Rolland, AMD’s Vega release resulted in a 4-percent quarter-over-quarter GPU share gain. In addition, Vega has triggered an uptick in GPU average sales price, which was up as much as 25 percent on the quarter. AMD was also able to gain CPU share in the third quarter.

At the same time, laptop SSD attach rates surged to new all-time highs of around 56 percent, despite NAND shortages. Marvell was the big share gainer in the space, picking up 2 percent of SSD market share in the third quarter.

Rolland said AMD’s share gains came at the expense of NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA). Rolland said Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC), on the other hand, could be a winner from rising ASPs.

“Intel should benefit as 3Q17 ASPs rise and as our ODM notebook tracker offers upside, now suggesting low-single-digit unit growth in 2017,” Rolland wrote.

ODM notebook sales are coming in better than expected in the third quarter, up 7.2 percent compares to Q2 and 3.0 percent year over year. Those growth numbers topped Susquehanna’s expectations of 2.6 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively. Surprisingly strong ODM notebook sales is a positive for both AMD and Intel.

In light of the latest semiconductor numbers, Susquehanna prefers investors choose Positive-rated Intel Corporation and Marvell Technology over Neutral-rated AMD and Nvidia.

What’s Up With Sprint And T-Mobile?

What's Up With Sprint And T-Mobile?

Shares of Sprint Corp (NYSE: S) rose more than 7 percent Tuesday morning while shares of T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ: TMUS) gained 5 percent after CNBC’s David Faber reported the two mobile companies are in active merger talks.

Sprint along with its parent company Softbank and T-Mobile and its parent company Deutsche Telekom could be weeks away from finalizing an agreement that would merge the two companies together, Faber suggested. The deal may consist of a stock-for-stock merger under which T-Mobile’s parent company, Deutsche Telekom, will become the majority owner.

As is always the case, the chances of a deal finalizing are not guaranteed, Faber continued. The two companies were engaged in “meaningful” talks earlier this year at which point Softbank was open to the idea of selling its stake. However, this time around, Softbank is demanding to remain a significant, although still minority shareholder in the combined entity.

A merger of the two companies could generate billions of dollars’ worth of cost synergies and savings and see John Legere, T-Mobile’s current CEO, lead the combined entity. But Softbank’s CEO Masayoshi Son is still demanding a say in the company’s direction, which may add a layer of complexity to the already difficult talks.

Finally, the biggest obstacle to any deal would come from government regulators, Faber concluded. The merger of Sprint and T-Mobile would combine the number three and number four wireless carriers into one company and it is not clear if the Department of Justice would sign off on such a deal.

Analyst ‘Takes A Flyer’ On McKesson, Upgrades Ahead Of Earnings

Analyst 'Takes A Flyer' On McKesson, Upgrades Ahead Of Earnings

“Taking a flyer” on McKesson Corporation (NYSE: MCK), as per its recent assertion that it would take a call at the right time, Baird upgraded shares of the company. The firm noted that the company’s shares have materially underperformed in the year-to-date period as well as the trailing 12-month period, and trade at notable discounts, both on an absolute and relative basis.

As such, the firm upgrades shares of McKesson from Neutral to Outperform and increased its price target from $175 to $178. The firm clarified that the 20-percent upside potential implied by the revised price target presented adequate cushion for a tactical upgrade.

In pre-market trading, shares of McKesson were rallying 3.02 percent to $152.90.

Confidence In 2018

Analyst Eric Coldwell indicated that time the firm spent with McKesson management last week had only limited influence on the call. Based on the meeting, the analyst said management, though it did not provide any quarterly guidance, exuded confidence in 2018 and the company’s long-term vision.

While stating that his visibility into the second quarter of 2018 remains limited, Coldwell also said he believes the September quarter will demonstrably exceed the fiscal first quarter performance (see Coldwell’s track record here).

The analyst thinks the tone and outlook for the December and March quarters will be relatively positive, irrespective of the September outcome.

Upside Risk Returning To Story

Baird noted that buy-side generics procurement has materially improved and sell-side customer pricing is stabilizing. Additionally, brand price inflation guidance and guidance for generics that inflate in value is very modest, and net reimbursement headwinds are likely balancing, the firm added.

The firm believes upside risk is returning to the McKesson story, though believing it might take another quarter or two to present fully. Longer term, the firm still sees material risk for changing dynamics.

Papa John’s And Sonic: 2 Appetizing Stocks For Value-Hungry Investors

Papa John's And Sonic: 2 Appetizing Stocks For Value-Hungry Investors

Analysts at Citigroup identified on Monday two restaurant stocks that could offer value to investors looking to invest in the group. The firm’s Gregory Badishkanian initiated coverage of both Papa John’s Int’l, Inc. (NASDAQ: PZZA) and Sonic Corporation (NASDAQ: SONC) with bullish ratings.

Papa John’s

Badishkanian initiated coverage of Papa John’s stock with a Buy rating and $90 price target. The pizza chain offers investors a differentiated concept through unique advertising campaigns and partnerships. This business model appears to be sustainable over the long term as the company gains market share and grows out its store count.

While bears might argue the domestic promotional environment within the pizza restaurant is reason to avoid the stock, these fears are “overbaked” and represent an attractive entry point for longer-term investors.

Sonic

Badishkanian initiated coverage of Sonic’s stock with a Buy rating and $28 price target. As the largest drive-in chain in the U.S. with more than 3,500 restaurants across 45 states, the company certainly offers a differentiated concept. On top of that, the company’s proven operating methods, diverse menu, an attractive value proposition and strong management team are all factors that are not included in the stock’s current valuation.

‘Panic’ May Be Setting In Among Nike Investors

'Panic' May Be Setting In Among Nike Investors

Nike Inc (NYSE: NKE) investors’ patience for a turnaround may be starting to wane.

“Patience is wearing thin and panic may be setting in,” said Canaccord Genuity analyst Camilo Lyon as he lowered fiscal year 2018 estimates from $2.34 to $2.32.

Since 2015′s all-time highs, shares are down 20 percent and have done very little in the past two years, despite new marketwide highs.

During that time, Nike has shown little promise in pipeline innovation, beyond the VaporMax release, which is one of the few areas doing well for the company.

Meanwhile, adidas (AG) (ADR) (OTC: ADDYY) has taken off in the last two years, with shares tripling as it continues to steal market share away from Nike and in turn cause panic amid Nike investors and the company internally.

During Nike’s fall from grace, discounting products has been widespread, crippling retail partners with weak comps. Demand for some of Nike’s biggest shoe platforms — Jordan, Roshe and signature basketball — have all deteriorated. It will be difficult to overcome the stigma that significant discounting does to a brand.

tipranks_360.png

Heading into Nike’s first-quarter earnings, Lyon echoed the sentiment that expectations will need to be tempered, especially regarding the company’s ambitious target of $50 billion in revenue by 2020. This target was announced in 2015 when things were looking much different for Nike.

“Historically Q1 is NKE’s strongest quarterly beat, and given how seemingly conservative this Q1 sounds (flat sales and GM down 150-180bps), NKE should surprise to the upside due to an optically low bar,” said Lyon.

Lyon expects that the futures and global futures will deteriorate further and expects the discounting to persist into 2018. Canaccord Genuity maintains a Hold rating on Nike with a $51 price target.

Analyst: We’re Downgrading Teladoc, But We Remain Very Bullish

Analyst: We're Downgrading Teladoc, But We Remain Very Bullish

Analysts at Baird Equity Research no longer consider Teladoc Inc (NYSE: TDOC) to be a stock investors should necessarily be buying, although holders of the stock may not want to sell either. The firm’s Matthew Gillmor downgrades Teladoc’s stock rating from Overweight to Neutral with an unchanged $36 price target.

The downgrade of the telehealth company is not a “negative call,” and the company’s long-term growth potential and strategy remain unchanged, Gillmor commented in his downgrade note (see his track record here). But at the same time, a more than 100-percent gain since the start of 2017 and 62 percent since initiating coverage in March many of the positive developments have mostly played out, including:

    1. Re-accelerating visit utilization.
    2. “Diminishing” noise concerning competitor behavior and pricing.
    3. A compelling valuation relative to its growth prospects.

“As the undisputed leader, with an increasingly broad set of virtual health capabilities (re: Best Doctors, etc.), we think TDOC is well positioned to capture this market opportunity,” Gillmor wrote. “We simply think the stock may take a temporary breather and consolidate recent gains.”

Finally, the stock’s forward revenue multiple has typically fluctuated in a range from 4x to 6x yet the current valuation of 6.3x is still “reasonable,” the analyst concluded. In fact, the current multiple could imply a 20 percent upside based on 2019 numbers.

At time of publication, shares of Teladoc were down 6.26 percent at $33.70.

7 Takeaways From Apple Investor Meetings Suggest Concern Over Face ID, iPhone X Pricing

7 Takeaways From Apple Investor Meetings Suggest Concern Over Face ID, iPhone X Pricing

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) investors had their biggest week of the year, with the company finally unveiling its highly-anticipated 10-year anniversary iPhone family of products.

Following the event, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo discussed Apple’s new devices with customers, and she said the jury is still out on the iPhone X, at least until preorders begin on Oct. 27.

In a new note, Kuo outlined seven key takeaways from the event and conversations with customers:

  • 1. The market’s switch from touch ID to facial recognition ID is bad news for companies who produce fingerprint technology.
  • 2. Apple is likely delaying iPhone X preorders because it wants to avoid cannibalizing iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus preorders.
  • 3. Some Apple investors are concerned about sell-through of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from Q1 of 2018.
  • 4. Investors expect some profit-taking in Apple suppliers due to concerns over iPhone X demand and pricing.
  • 5. Investors aren’t concerned about the fact that the iPhone X doesn’t come in gold.
  • 6. The Apple Watch Series 3 was an under-the-radar winner from the event, and investors see it as a potential leader in the high-end sports watch market.
  • 7. The fact that Apple announced its AirPower wireless charger but failed to provide specific shipment dates or detailed tech specs for the device supports KGI’s theory that there may be production issues with the device.

For now, Kuo says Apple investors should have Oct. 27 circled on the calendar.

“We see concerns about market acceptance of Face ID and the pricing of iPhone X, before confirmation of robust pre-orders is seen. Therefore, market views may be mixed before pre-orders of iPhone X begin on October 27,” she wrote.

Apple stock finished launch week down 1 percent at $159.88.
