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.
