06:12 EDTSBUXStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.
06:01 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $143 from $116 at UBS
UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson raised his price target for Netflix (NFLX) shares to $143 after increasing his longer term revenue assumptions. The streaming service closed yesterday down $1.31 to $124.05. Mitchelson upped his 2020-2026 revenue estimates to reflect his belief that Netflix will successfully monetize its streaming platform beyond just monthly subscription fees, such as bundling and promoting third party services. He has increased confidence in the company's U.S. growth outlook after T-Mobile (TMUS) just launched a promotion for its wireless service that included one free year of Netflix. As competition among broadband providers intensifies, Netflix's inexpensive monthly streaming service could become one of the standard promotional tools, Mitchelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's "upside case" for Netflix shares is $199 while his "downside case" is $55. The downside case assumes Hollywood starts restricting content licensing to streaming services like Netflix in attempt to slow their growth. Mitchelson keeps a Buy rating on Netflix.

08:12 EDTSTOGlobal Big Oil sector upgraded at Citi
Citi analysts Alastair Syme and Michael Alsford upgraded their rating on the Global Big Oil space and now recommend investors position "at least a benchmark-weight" in the group. The analysts, who had been multi-year cautious on the space, prefer Total (TOT), ConocoPhillips (COP) and Statoil (STO), which they call "self-helpers." The sector price-to-book ratio of 1.2 times is now below the Q1 of 2009 and Q4 of 1998 troughs, Syme and Alsford write. Cost-cutting and better capital allocation are key to restoring the industry's profitability, they believe.
