08:05 EDTFBFacebook Netflix TubeMogul best Internet pullback opportunities,says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer sees Facebook (FB) Netflix (NFLX) and TubeMogul (TUBE) as providing the best buying opportunities among Internet stocks. The firm notes that the growth of Facebook's usage minutes fell to 17% year-over-year in July from a 20% increase in June and a 21% increase in May. However, the firm notes that the company maintained its 21% share of time on mobile devices. The firm thinks that the company's earnings could be boosted in the near-term by the launch of performance-based ads on Instagram. Oppenheimer notes that Netflix has risks from U.S. dollar appreciation and investors' skepticism towards stocks whose value is based on expected long-term growth. TubeMogul could be hurt by perceived risks to global macro growth, according to the firm.Despite these risks, the firm thinks that Facebook's stock could rise 27% above its $110 price target. It believes that Netflix's stock could jump 15% above its $125 price target and it thinks that TubeMogul could surpass its $19 price target by 83%.

08:54 EDTDISDisney price target lowered to $89 from $98 at Cowen
Cowen lowered its price target on Disney to $89 from $98 following Q3 results. The firm said the company's share price leaves little room for error and the lower growth rate in cable will likely put pressure on the Studio segment. Cowen maintained its Market Perform rating on Disney shares given its historical and projected growth rates have not been superior to peers.
08:53 EDTDISAfter rough week, Disney shares expected to recover
With fears of cord cutting and declining advertising rates consuming the minds of investors and analysts this week, Disney (DIS) shares have dropped 7% over the past five trading days. Stepping out of the growing pack of bearish analysts is FBR Capital's Barton Crockett. ROUGH WEEK: On Tuesday, Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker downgraded her rating on Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to Market Perform from Outperform. None of the large media companies reported that their revenue from cable stations or broadcast networks increased in the most recent quarter, Ryvicker told investors. TV distributors have more favorable characteristics than the media companies, she argued. Then on Thursday, Bernstein analyst Todd Juenger downgraded Disney (DIS), along with Time Warner (TWX), to Market Perform from Outperform. The move by viewers away from ad-supported platforms to non-ad-supported services like Netflix (NFLX) will bring a "prolonged structural decline" to the U.S. television industry, Juenger contended. PATH TO RECOVERY: Sentiment is driving Disney and the media stocks lower, FBR Capital's Barton Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note titled "Performance Is the Best Defense: How Disney, Near Term, Can Separate from Peers." Cord cutting and advertising fears are taking down the valuation multiples in the media sector, but consensus earnings estimates are little changed, the analyst writes. Cord cutting is the term used to describe the dropping of cable or satellite TV in favor of an online streaming service. Crockett sees a number of "performance positives near term" that can help shares of Disney recover. The owner of ESPN can separate itself from peers with solid second half of 2015 advertising trends when football returns, he believes. Disney can also benefit from the retail push for Star Wars movie merchandise, starting with a midnight door-buster national product launch on September 4, the analyst writes. PETER OUT: Crockett expects cord-cutting fears to "peter out." Cable bundles broadband with TV, and most households have a sports fan, he points out. While Netflix takes audiences from non-sports content, sports will save the bundle subscription model that benefits Disney's ESPN unit, Crockett thinks. He has an Outperform rating on Disney with a $124 price target. The stock closed yesterday down $6.44, or 6%, to $100.01. Over the past three months, Disney is down over 9%.
