07:47 EDTGOOGDeutsche Bank remains 'firmly' in the Twitter bull camp
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler says he remains "firmly in the bull camp" on Twitter (TWTR). A host of positive news is forthcoming, including the October 6 launch of Moments, better than expected revenue in the Q3 earnings report, and the filing of the CEO role along with a board re-shuffle. These events should be positive for investor sentiment, Ross tells investors in a research note. His channel checks continue to suggest "solid revenue trajectory" for Twitter in most markets, including U.S. direct sales, self-serve and international. Ross believes the "sentiment pendulum" for Twitter has "swung too far to the negative." He likens the current view on Twitter to when Facebook (FB) in 2012 and Google (GOOG) in the first half of 2015 went out of favor. Ross keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $50 price target. Twitter closed yesterday down $2.27 to $24.67.

07:18 EDTGOOGGoogle upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein upgraded Google (GOOG) to Outperform citing valuation with his sum-of-the-parts analysis yielding a $700 price target. The search giant closed yesterday up $2.87 to $611.29. Google's YouTube usage is accelerating, growing at the fastest pace in over two years, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. He points out that the company's new ad products will compete directly with Facebook's (FB) app-install ads and "Custom Audiences." Concerns over ad-blocking are less an issue for Google as it controls Chrome and Android, the analyst contends. His price target of $700 represents a $30 increase.
