10:12 EDTPCLNGoogle climbs after Goldman upgrade, Cantor endorsement
The shares of Google (GOOG, GOOGL) are rallying after Goldman Sachs upgraded the search giant's stock and Cantor Fitzgerald named the stock as one of the top five Internet names to buy amid the market's recent selloff. WHAT'S NEW: Google is in the early innings of a long-term margin expansion process as the search giant intensifies its focus on cost cutting, Goldman analyst Heather Bellini wrote in a note to investors today. Moreover, after conducting checks, Bellini is more upbeat on the company's ability to increase its monetization of YouTube and mobile search. The analyst, who believes that cost cutting combined with the increased monetization is starting to move the needle for the company, hiked her price target on Google's Class A stock to $800 from $660, upgraded the stock and added the shares to Goldman's Americas Conviction List. Meanwhile, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali named Google as one of his top five Internet stocks to buy amid the market's recent volatility. Google is "relatively resilient," given its 91% share of the global search market as of July and its $61B of net cash as of the end of Q2, the analyst believes. Moreover, the company has virtually no exposure to China and its new corporate structure should improve its transparency, Squali believes. He kept a $720 price target and Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The other four companies on Squali's list of top Internet stocks are Amazon (AMZN), Priceline (PCLN), Facebook (FB), and Alibaba (BABA). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Google's Class A shares rose 4.4% to $640 and its Class C shares advanced nearly 5% to $610.
07:25 EDTPCLNCantor names top five Internet names to buy during selloff
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali said he "won't attempt to call the bottom" but identified his top five Internet and Media names to buy amid the recent market volatility, all of which have dominance in their respective markets, higher than peer level growth and valuations that he views as reasonable. Squali, who noted that he views concerns over macro risks and China to be overblown, called out Google (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), Priceline (PCLN), Facebook (FB) and Alibaba (BABA) as having an attractive risk/reward given the selloff in recent sessions. The firm has Buy ratings on all five of the stocks named above.

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.
