14:51 EDTGOOGAugmented reality to overtake smartphones in 10 years, Citi says
Virtual reality devices and similar "augmented reality" gadgets could become the new smartphone in just one decade, Citi researcher Kota Ezawa argued Tuesday, building on a growing volume of analyst opinions on the promising new technologies. CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHIFT: Virtual reality and augmented reality devices will eventually generate "major new markets that replace the smartphone" in a process of "destructive creation," Citi analyst Kota Ezawa and his team contended in a research note. Current virtual reality gadgets involve large headset "goggles" aiming to completely immerse a user in a virtual space, while augmented reality technology seeks to overlay or superimpose images and data over objects in the real world. AR, seemingly the more portable and compact of the two approaches, allows users to move, work, and perform everyday tasks while still making use of the tech. Though VR goggles offer greater immersion, AR devices seem to be the more obvious bridge between smartphones and truly wearable computers, leading Ezawa to forecast the AR market ultimately becoming larger than VR. That said, the mobility of AR also creates greater technical hurdles, as the need to embed processors and batteries within the wireless headset while still displaying high-quality, convincing imagery means the technology has a longer development horizon than VR, which can offload much of its processing requirements to a stationary computer or game console. Early versions of AR are expected to appear in 2016-2017, according to Ezawa, though full-featured systems are unlikely to be available before 2019-2022. Both technologies have numerous applications, said the analyst, with early content being primarily games and movies before expanded offerings involving theme parks, live events, remote medicine, job tasks, and, notably, significant e-commerce and mobile commerce applications. With the VR/AR market "set to ramp up" from 2016, Ezawa sees the space reaching $674B in 2025 as the average price of headsets declines to $227 by the mid-2020s. The analyst's main recommendation in the space is Sony (SNE), whose Playstation VR headset is scheduled for a 1H16 launch. Other key names in headset development include Facebook's (FB) Oculus virtual reality subsidiary and Samsung (SSNLF). Note also Microsoft's (MSFT) Hololens and Google's (GOOG) Project Glass. Meanwhile, LG Display (LPL) and Analog Devices (ADI) are among hardware names with exposure to VR/AR, while Live Nation (LYV), Disney (DIS), Time Warner (TWX), Fox (FOXA), SAP (SAP) and Salesforce (CRM) are among software and service providers that may benefit. PRICE ACTION: Sony shares trading in New York have advanced roughly 1.4% to $26.29 in afternoon trading.

10:43 EDTGOOGBarclays sees three of four FANG stocks continuing outperformance
Three of the four high flying, large cap Internet stocks that make up "FANG" - Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX), and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) - can continue to rally in 2016, predicted Barclays analyst Paul Vogel in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that the group of four Internet stocks have outperformed their peers and the tech media and telecom universe by wide margins this year, Barclays analyst Paul Vogel said he expects the stocks "to continue to work into 2016." Vogel says that all of the components of FANG have rallied based on good financial fundamentals with the exception of Netflix. The latter stock's rally was based on better than expected subscriber trends, which have made investors overlook its "in line to modestly disappointing financial results," Vogel believes. But Facebook, Amazon and Google have all seen their revenue growth accelerate this year, and their revenue has beaten expectations almost every quarter, the analyst noted. Moreover, Amazon and Google's margins increased in 2015, while Facebook's margins came in above expectations, the analyst pointed out. Although most investors are bullish on the FANG stocks at this point, their fundamentals should stay strong into 2016 and most of their results can continue to beat expectations next year, he predicted. Vogel kept Overweight ratings on Facebook, Amazon and Google, but said he does not advocate buying Netflix at this time. In the note, Vogel raised his price target for to $850 after rolling over his target to 2017 estimates. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Facebook rose 1.5% to $105.81, Amazon added about 1% to $670, Netflix was flat at $123.35 and Google Class A shares climbed 2% to $777.34.
