06:55 EDTJAZZ2016 could be pivotal year for Jazz, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Gregg Gilbert says 2016 could be a pivotal year for Jazz Pharmaceuticals. The analyst sees several potential catalysts for the shares, including potentially greater certainty on Xyrem duration via a patent settlement or a win in court, FDA approval of defibrotide and acquisitions supported by the company's under-leveraged balance sheet. Gilbert keeps a Buy rating on Jazz with a $167 price target.

08:26 EDTDISTwitter in play after executive departures, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes yesterday's news of several senior executives leaving Twitter (TWTR) puts the company in play and could encourage potential bidders to step forward. Twitter's current valuation and sizeable user base makes it a strategic asset for a number of potential buyers, Squali told investors last night in a research note. Potential suitors on the technology side include Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT), the analyst contends. On the media side, Squali thinks 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner (TWX) could express interest in Twitter. No concentration of share ownership and no super-voting structure increase the odds of a buyout, Squali argues. The analyst, however, adds that the executive departures are not good news for a company in the midst of a turnaround. He maintains a Buy rating on the microblogging operator with a $45 price target. Twitter closed yesterday down 82c, or 5%, to $17.02..

06:54 EDTDISDisney downgraded to Neutral on reduced ESPN forecasts at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities analyst Hamilton Faber downgraded Disney to Neutral from Overweight and cut his price target to $104 from $148. Faber looked at how cord cutting will affect ESPN and is concerned about high levels of fixed costs in its sports rights while ESPN faces revenue headwinds. The analyst's 20 year ESPN model forecasts strong five year growth of +9% per year, but average growth over the following five years is -12% and negative thereafter. Faber reduced ESPN subscriber forecasts and no longer believes Disney's premium valuation is sustainable.
