05:43 EDTAMZNAmazon launch not immediate threat to Splunk, says UBS
UBS analyst Brent Thill attributes yesterday's weakness in shares of Splunk (SPLK) to Amazon's (AMZN) launch of its own Elasticsearch Service, which on the surface looks competitive to Splunk's Cloud offering. After speaking with Splunk management, however, Thill views Amazon's launch as more of a "Wall Street headline risk" than an immediate competitive threat to Splunk's financials. Amazon's product seems more high-level and less solution-centric compared to Spunk, Thill tells investors in a research note titled "All Analytics Not Created Equal." Shares of Splunk closed yesterday down $1.06 to $55.30. Thill keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $76 price target.

09:39 EDTAMZNeSports seen as next big growth opportunity in media
Competitive video game playing in organized leagues, or eSports, is on the verge of reaching mainstream adoption and moving from an engagement tool to a monetization opportunity for video game makers, according to Baird analyst Colin Sebastian, who calls the trend the "biggest media and sports growth opportunity you've never heard of." NEXT BIG THING: eSports could have 200M active and engaged participants as early as next year and can grow from about $200M this year to $1B in revenues by 2018, Sebastian tells investors this morning in a research note. Game publishers such as Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO) are "natural beneficiaries," according to Sebastian, who believes that eSports has the potential to drive earnings growth and multiple expansion for the sector. eSports is still mainly a tool to help engage and keep core gamers, but Sebastian expects this to change quickly as game makers focus on incremental revenue opportunities and increasing average revenue per user. The analyst also sees "significant opportunities" from eSports for online streaming platforms, like Amazon's (AMZN) Twitch and Google's (GOOG) newer platform, as well as for Microsoft (MSFT), Sony (SNE) and PC and component makers. ANOTHER eSPORTS BULL: Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis previously told investors that he believes the surging popularity of competitive video gaming on a global basis will benefit game publishers as well as hardware companies like NVIDIA (NVDA). In a note to investors last month, the analyst said that Activision Blizzard had five of the top fifteen most popular games on Twitch in July, and contended that the company looks best positioned among game makers to benefit from the eSports opportunity. On the date of his eSports note, Lipacis upgraded NVIDIA to Buy from Hold, saying secular growth in gaming will trump PC weakness. The company's Gaming Graphics Processing Unit is "under the radar" and has grown 23% annually over the past three years, noted Lipacis, who raised his price target for shares to $30 from $23. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Activision Blizzard rose 1.4% to $31.90, Electronic Arts gained 1.04% to $67.18 and Take-Two Interactive advanced 0.85% to $29.64.

11:32 EDTAMZNAnalyst sees Amazon becoming #2 player in $425B consumables market
Amazon (AMZN) will advance to the number two position in the $425B U.S. consumables market, excluding food and beverages, by 2018, research firm Cowen predicted in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon's "multi platform approach around Prime" is enabling it to gain share in the U.S. market for goods including personal care, household, pet and baby products, Cowen analyst John Blackledge stated. Specifically, the e-commerce giant is effectively using its Amazon Prime, Amazon Prime Now, Amazon Pantry and Amazon Fresh offerings to sell consumables and it has significantly increased the number of fulfillment centers it operates, lowering its delivery times, according to Blackledge. The company's delivery times are now "well ahead of (the) competition," the analyst reported. The e-commerce giant's strategy in the consumables market appears to be working, as Cowen's proprietary data indicates that the company is gaining share in the category, Blackledge wrote. Additionally, Amazon is beginning to attract more customers from Wal-Mart (WMT) and Target (TGT), he believes. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Amazon slipped 0.4% to $518.70.
