06:42 EDTTSLATesla price target raised to $465 from $280 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas raised his price target for Tesla Motors to $465 from $280, well above Friday's closing price of $243.15. Today, ten trillion vehicle miles are driven annually, with almost all of them delivered by "companies practicing a 100-year-old business model of human-driven, privately owned, internal-combustion vehicles," Jonas tells investors in a research note. The market is going through some fundamental changes, however, argues Jonas. He believes Tesla is "uniquely positioned" to dominate given its expertise in autonomous technology and networked machine learning. An app-based, on-demand mobility service could more than triple Tesla's potential revenues by 2029, the analyst estimates. He expects Tesla over the next 18 months to roll out formalized business plans on shared mobility, allowing the electric vehicle maker to sell miles in addition to cars. His new price target of $465 reflects Tesla's potential to lead the revolution of the shared mobility public transportation hyper-structure and more confidence around the commercial viability of Tesla Energy. Jonas keeps an Overweight rating on shares of Tesla. His new price target is a high among sell-side analysts on Wall Street.

13:54 EDTAAPLAkamai guidance reflects Apple TV delay, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty believes Apple's (AAPL) delay of its live TV service until 2016 is consistent with Akamai's (AKAM) 2015 guidance and management's commentary during the most recent earnings call. Akamai's investments to support a large-scale over-the-top build-out are likely related to Apple's live TV offering, Auty tells investors. He keeps an Overweight rating on Akamai.
12:37 EDTTSLAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session with modest losses, despite a stabilization in the Chinese yuan overnight. Relatively in line data on producer prices and industrial production did not hurt the situation, but there was also the lack of a catalyst. As a result, the market has drifted throughout the morning session moving up as much as 0.4% before paring its gains. The market is now struggling to hold onto its meager gains. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., both industrial production and PPI beat estimates, with industrial production increasing 0.6% and PPI increasing 0.2%. Consumer sentiment for August fell to 92.9 in the preliminary report from the University of Michigan survey, after slipping to 93.1 in July from 96.1 in June. Meanwhile, Euro-area GDP rose 0.3% last quarter. Germany's economy grew 0.4%, Italy's 0.2%, while France stagnated. The Baker Hughes North American rig count report is out at 1 p.m. ET. COMPANY NEWS: General Electric (GE) announced an agreement to sell GE Capital Bank's U.S. online deposit platform along with all deposits of GE Capital Bank, including online savings accounts, online CDs and brokered CDs, to Goldman Sachs Bank USA (GS). Under this agreement approximately $16B of deposits will be transferred to GS Bank. Separately, Goldman Sachs is selling its Colombia coal mining division to privately held Murray Energy. General Motors (GM) is boosting production of its larger SUVs and trucks, according to Reuters. The automaker could make as many as 60,000 additional vehicles for the 2016 model year to capitalize on rising demand. Meanwhile, GM is recalling 73,424 small cars because improper wiring could prevent the roof-mounted driver's side air bag from deploying after a crash, the Associated Press reported. SunTrust analyst Robert Peck said he believes Twitter (TWTR) could announce a permanent CEO as early as next week. Peck continues to think Twitter is likely to unveil a "Triumvirate of leadership" with Jack Dorsey as CEO, Adam Bain as COO and Evan Williams with more board influence, possibly Chairman. Tesla's (TSLA) secondary offering of 2.7 million common shares was priced at $242 each, according to an SEC filing. That represents an increase from the 2.1 million shares Tesla had previously announced for the offering. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were department store retailers Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP), which gained 5.35% and 5.95%, respectively. Also higher was WuXi PharmaTech (WX), up 5.45%, which reported earnings and entered into an agreement to be acquired by a management buyout group for around $3.3B. Cyberark Software (CYBR) also gained 1.8% after being upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. Among the noteworthy losers was El Pollo Loco (LOCO), which dropped 18% after its Q2 revenue fell short of analysts' estimates. Also lower were shares of King Digital (KING), which declined nearly 12% after reporting quarterly earnings and forecasting gross bookings for the third quarter $460M-$485M, citing "recent trends." The company said fourth quarter gross bookings would be "fairly consistent sequentially." JPMorgan downgraded King Digital this morning to Neutral from Overweight citing an elevated risk profile following the results. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 42.43, or 0.24%, to 17,450.68, the Nasdaq was fractionally lower by 2.96, or 0.06%, to 5,030.59, and the S&P 500 was up 3.46, or 0.17%, to 2,086.89.
12:29 EDTZNGAKing Digital sinks after posting weaker than expected network metrics
Shares of King Digital (KING), an interactive entertainment company for the mobile world, are sinking after the company reported weaker than expected network metrics in the second quarter. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Thursday, King Digital reported Q2 adjusted earnings per share of 49c and revenue of $500M, ahead of analysts' consensus estimates of 43c and $490.03M, respectively. King reported Q2 total gross bookings of $529M, above the high end of its previously provided guidance range, but down 12% sequentially and 13% year over year. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, King said gross bookings would have decreased by approximately 11% sequentially, and by approximately 6% y/y. King noted that 81%, or $430M, of gross bookings were derived from the mobile audience. The company said "Candy Crush Saga," "Candy Crush Soda Saga" and "Farm Heroes Saga" ranked within the top 10 grossing games in App Store and Play Store in the U.S. during Q2. King said its monthly unique users fell 1% to 340M in Q2, down from 345M last year, while monthly active users were 501M vs. 485M last year; daily active users were 142M in Q2 vs. 138M last year. The company said year-over-year increases in monthly active users and daily active users were primarily due to the introduction of new games, particularly "Candy Crush Soda Saga," partially offset by decline in "Candy Crush Saga" and other more mature games. It said increases also reflect growth in activity from mobile players, partially offset by continued decrease in activity from Facebook (FB) players. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, King Digital said it expects gross bookings in the third quarter of $460M-$485M based on the timing of game releases and recent trends. The company sees fourth quarter bookings "fairly consistent sequentially." ANALYST REACTION: This morning, JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth downgraded King Digital Entertainment to Neutral from Overweight citing an elevated risk profile following the company's Q2 results. King's network metrics were weaker than expected while a key component of the company's pipeline, the upcoming mid-core game, is pushed to 2016, Anmuth said. He cut the price target for shares to $17 from $20. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, King Digital fell $1.81, or 11.84%, to $13.40 on nearly four times its average daily trading volume. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 3% over the past year. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the mobile gaming space include Glu Mobile (GLUU), Zynga (ZNGA), Shanda Games (GAME), Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO).
