Bank Of America Says Expectations For Groupon Are Still Too High

Shares of Groupon Inc (NASDAQ: GRPN) were trading lower by 2 percent Friday after analysts at Bank of America said the stock deserves to trade at a discount and has few catalysts ahead to spur growth.

Bank of America’s Akshay Bhatia reinstated coverage of Groupon’s stock with an Underperform rating and $3.50 price target, which implies downside moving forward.

Where Will The Growth Come From?

Groupon executed well throughout 2016 in simplifying the business, leaving unprofitable regions and refocusing on its core Local offering while also growing its customer base, the analyst noted. Despite these initiatives, the company is expected to “struggle” with showing sustainable and profitable growth at a time when customer retention trends are being “challenged.”

Meanwhile, Groupon’s churn rate is worsening and a Bank of America e-commerce focused survey in May 2017 found that Groupon has the second-highest number of respondents who said they will decrease or stop altogether usage at 39 percent.

Groupon’s search interest on Google has “trended down globally” as search interest stands at roughly 70 percent of 2011′s peak levels.

For these reasons, the analyst thinks the Street’s estimates are “overly optimistic” and Bhatia’s 2018 and 2019 EBITDA forecasts are 16 percent and 20 percent below the consensus estimates, respectively.

Bottom line, Groupon has “limited” top-line growth versus its peers and its history of inconsistent revenue trends, elevated advertising spend and limited operating leverage justifies a discount valuation versus its peers.

The analyst’s $3.50 price target is based on an 8.5x EV/EBITDA multiple to 2018 estimates, which is notably below the eCommerce group average of 14x.

If The iPhone 8 Is Delayed, Will Anyone Care?

If The iPhone 8 Is Delayed, Will Anyone Care?

If reports that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) won’t begin selling its new iPhone until December instead of September are true, will investors actually care? In short, the answer is no, at least according to Drexel Hamilton’s global head of technology Brian White.

It may be safe to assume at this point that the iPhone 8 launch will be delayed, White said as a guest on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” Thursday. After all, Apple is packing in a lot of new innovation and technology into the phone that the company has never used before, including 3D sensing.

As such, the phone’s delay will have some sort of impact if impatient customers chose not to hold out a few more months, White added. But the impact will most likely not be meaningful enough for investors to actually care and are “are looking through this” potential delay.

In fact, investors are likely better off focusing on the stock’s attractive valuation at a P/E multiple (excluding cash) of 11x, which is a discount to the broader S&P 500 index that trades at a 17x multiple. This discount may not continue forever, as there is an ongoing “re-evaluation” of what’s an appropriate multiple.

Specifically, Apple continues to prove to investors it’s not only “very durable” in sustaining market share and margins for its iPhone, but can capitalize on the growing middle class across the world.

Johnson & Johnson Shares Strong Since Actelion Acquisition, But Potential For Upside Remains

Johnson & Johnson Shares Strong Since Actelion Acquisition, But Potential For Upside Remains

Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) shares are up about 20 percent since the company acquired Actelion back in January. However, despite the strong performance, Credit Suisse analyst Vamil Divan sees more upside ahead for the pharma giant.

On Thursday, Credit Suisse reinstated coverage of Johnson & Johnson stock with an Outperform rating and $148 price target. According to Divan, Johnson & Johnson has several key growth drivers ahead.

tipranks.png

“Based on channel checks and detailed modeling we have done across various therapeutic areas, we see opportunities for significant upside from assets such as Xarelto, Darzalex and Imbruvica,” Divan wrote.

Related Link: Attention To Details: Neos’ ADHD Portfolio

He noted that these growth drivers are not necessarily a result of the Actelion buyout. In fact, Divan said that at $29.1 billion, Johnson & Johnson likely overpaid for Actelion. Still, the deal certainly adds another long-term growth avenue for Johnson & Johnson.

In the near term, Johnson & Johnson has two potentially bullish catalysts ahead.

First, the company is expected to release COMPASS data for Xarelto at the European Society of Cardiology conference on August 29. Shortly thereafter, Johnson & Johnson has the PDUFA date for sirukumab in mod-sensitive rheumatoid arthritis on Sept. 22.

In addition, investors should look for the addition of more Remicade biosimilars in the second half of 2017, Divan said.

Over the long term, Divan sees the pharma business as the major growth driver. Credit Suisse estimates 5.8 percent compound annual growth from the pharma business through 2021 compared to just 3.7 percent annual growth for the medical devices business and 3.1 percent annual growth from the consumer business.

Credit Suisse’s $148 price target is based on 18.5x the company’s 2018 EPS forecast of $7.79.

Legal Battles, Merger With NXP Set Up Catalysts For Qualcomm This Year

Legal Battles, Merger With NXP Set Up Catalysts For Qualcomm This Year

Despite QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM)’s ongoing legal battle with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley still sees the company as a solid investment for long-term traders. Walkley reiterated a Buy rating and $70 price target (see Walkley’s track record here).

Qualcomm managed to beat the Street’s estimates for its third-quarter earnings, but was trading down afterward due to the 40-percent profit slump resulting from Apple withholding royalties.

The tech giants’ legal battle is getting more intense, now that Apple’s manufacturers are joining in and throwing their weight into an antitrust suit against Qualcomm.

The company also did not recognize a second licensee, which Walkley believes to be Samsung.

Overall EPS was strong though because of gains in the CDMA Technologies segment. A diverse product mix and opportunities for growth in mobile and adjacent markets drove the upside. Management highlighted the segment’s 30 percent growth year over year.

Walkley’s revised model now accounts for this growth, and fully discounts any potential licensing revenue from Apple and Samsung Electronic (OTC: SSNLF). Despite billions of dollars no longer being in the model, the stock earned itself a Buy.

The analyst also expects the merger with NXP Semiconductors NV (NASDAQ: NXPI) will close and help to turn Qualcomm into an industry leader in mobile, Internet-of-Things and automotive semiconductors.

Others See Major Risk Ahead

Charter Equity Research’s Edward Snyder agrees with several of Walkley’s views, but doubt the company will be able to come back from Apple’s severe blows. Snyder reiterated a Market-Perform rating on Qualcomm shares.

The analyst fears smaller royalty rates from phone manufacturers in Asia…

Analysts Split On CSX’s Outlook Post Q2 Earnings

Analysts Split On CSX's Outlook Post Q2 Earnings

What impact will the death of fossil fuels have on CSX Corporation (NASDAQ: CSX)?

CSX’s CEO Hunter Harrison said during the company’s second-quarter conference call that “fossil fuels are dead” — which implies the company won’t invest in new coal-related assets, Loop Capital Markets’ Rick Paterson commented in a research report. The executive happens to be “exactly right” and is the first railroad CEO to both “state the obvious” and “tie it so explicitly” to capital allocation decisions.

tipranks.png

It is also difficult to see upside in CSX’s stock, especially after a sell-off in reaction to the earnings report, Paterson continued. In fact, the company is just four months into a four-year transition, but it appears investors aren’t buying into the long-term story.

Looking forward to 2020, the last year of Harrison’s contract, the analyst is now modeling a 59 percent operating ratio assumption. This marks a more than a 1,000-basis-point improvement from last year’s 70 percent, but yet again, investors don’t seem to be impressed. However, this may be attributed to the “key man risk” that Harrison’s tenure as CEO will only last a few years, and his long-term transformation plan is “incomplete.”

“The bottom line is that Q2 may be a taste of what’s to come in future quarters, which is highly scrutinized stellar performance required to primarily justify the gains the are already in the stock,” the analyst concluded.

Shares remain Hold rated but with a price target boosted from $52 to $54, implying limited to no upside moving forward.

Argus: Further Upside Ahead

CSX’s CEO Harrison has “wood to chop” at CSX, but he is up to the task, Argus’ John Eade said in a research report.

Harrison boasts the necessary experience and knowledge in turning around railroads and is targeting “substantial improvement” in efficiencies and earnings over the coming years, the analyst noted. Helping the executive’s mission is…

Morgan Stanley posted quarterly adjusted earnings of $0.87 per share on revenue of $9.50 billion. However, analysts were expecting earnings of $0.76 per share on sales of $9.09 billion.

Morgan Stanley raised its quarterly dividend from $0.20 to $0.25 per share and announced a $5 billion buyback plan.

Equities Trading UP

Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ: VRTX) shares shot up 25 percent to $165.63 after the company reported encouraging phase 2 data. The company’s three-drug cocktails showed an improvement in lung functions among patients with cystic fibrosis by 9.6 percentage points or more, which was better than what analysts were expecting. Cowen upgraded Vertex Pharma from Market Perform to Outperform, while Raymond James upgraded the stock from Market Perform to Outperform. Barclays also upgraded Vertex from Equal-Weight to Overweight.

Shares of Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNI) got a boost, shooting up 17 percent to $78.42. Discovery Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: DISCA) is in talks to merge with Scripps Networks, according to sources as reported by the Wall Street Journal.

AEterna Zentaris Inc. (USA) (NASDAQ: AEZS) shares were also up, gaining 67 percent to $1.70 after the company reported that the NDA for Macrilen for evaluation of growth hormone deficiency in adults has been granted a December 30, 2017 PDUFA date.

Looking Past Q2 Beat, Goldman Sachs Topline Outlook Still Troublesome

Looking Past Q2 Beat, Goldman Sachs Topline Outlook Still Troublesome

Despite posting strong second-quarter earnings, shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE: GS) took a plunge, closing down almost 6 percent on Tuesday.

The reason was poor trading results, which were down 40 percent for the quarter. In response to the report, Keefe Bruyette & Woods analyst Brian Kleinhanzl downgraded the stock from Outperform to Market-Perform and lowered its price target from $260 to $230.

“We do not expect… a materially better revenue outlook to emerge [near-term],” said Kleinhanzl.

The analyst expects trading headwinds to continue through the year, noting that he’s unsure of the company’s health.

Kleinhanzl is also concerned his current revenue estimates are too high. Without solid revenue growth, the stock will have no base to grow on in the long term.

“[Goldman Sachs] has become a show-me stock, and would need to consistently outperform in FICC trading for more than one quarter in order for us to become more constructive at this point in time,” said Kleinhanzl.

The analyst cut his EPS estimates for the company through 2019 by an average of 3.5 percent.
