07:45 EDTAAPL, AMZNSell PayPal amid mounting payments competition, Piper says
Shares of PayPal (PYPL) advanced over 5% yesterday in the stock's first day of trading following a split from eBay (EBAY), with the majority of research firms issuing optimistic notes on its prospects. This morning, however, analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray recommends selling the share as competition grows in the digital payments space. BEARS: Munster started shares of PayPal with an Underweight rating, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell," saying increased competition could pressure the stock's multiple over the next 6-24 months. Google's (GOOG) Android Pay and Apple's (AAPL) Apple Pay will give consumers a "real alternative to PayPal" for the first time, Munster tells investors in his research note. In addition, interest in payments from Amazon.com (AMZN) and Facebook (FB) bring potential for more digital wallet offerings, the analyst notes. Munster set a $30 price target for PayPal. Of note, Evercore ISI also started coverage of PayPal shares yesterday with a Sell rating. BULLS: Wells Fargo initiated coverage of PayPal yesterday with an Outperform rating, saying the company's unique assets will enable it to maintain its leadership role in digital payments and benefit from the growth of e-commerce. Also upbeat was Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian, who contends that PayPal has the top pure play online payment system and is continuing to grow its share of the Internet payment market. PayPal should be able to innovate more effectively after its spin-off, added the analyst, who set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Shares of PayPal are pointing toward further gains in their second day of standalone trading, with the stock up about 2.7% to $41.55 in pre-market trading.

06:05 EDTTSLAUBS sees Tesla falling short of expectations, downgrades to Sell
UBS analyst Colin Langan downgraded Tesla Motors to Sell from Neutral and cut his price target for shares to $210 from $220. The electric carmarker closed Monday up $7.60 to $282.26. The stock's current valuation implies deliveries of over 1.5M vehicles by 2025 plus full utilization of storage capacity, Langan tells investors this morning in a research note. His analysis indicates that Tesla's current planned 15GWs of storage capacity may be larger than the market in 2020, however. Further, the launch of the lower priced Model X electric car in Q3 "increases production complexity putting delivery targets at risk," Langan writes. He points out the stock has jumped 40% since the anticipation of the storage announcement. The analyst also expects other luxury carmakers to launch competing electric cars. Langan thinks Tesla's storage and auto volume growth will disappoint expectations. The stock is currently down $10 to $272.26 in pre-market trading.
