13:29 EDTGOOGSunTrust sees catalysts coming for Twitter, ups to buy
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) have seen healthy gains in afternoon trading after being upgraded to Buy by longtime Twitter analyst Robert Peck ahead of what he identifies as numerous potential near-term catalysts. BUY: SunTrust's Robert Peck upgraded Twitter to Buy from Neutral in advance of what he called a "series" of positive near-term catalysts for the stock, including the Google (GOOG) partnership to feature Tweets in search results as well as Twitter's curated live events initiative known as "Project Lightning." Additionally, a fourth quarter ad campaign and a push to capitalize on the roughly 500M logged-out users could lift the microblog site given proper execution. Importantly, the analyst said the upgrade is predicated on a quick clarification regarding the current management situation at Twitter, with more information "likely" to come around Labor Day according to Peck. User metrics appear to have "at least stabilized," noted Peck, adding that monetization efforts like video ads and Buy buttons could yield a roughly 15% boost to 2017 revenue. CEO SHUFFLE: On August 14, Peck predicted that Twitter could announce a permanent CEO as soon as the week of August 17. At the time, Peck said he expected a leadership "triumvirate," with founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey moving into a permanent Chief Executive role and Adam Bain becoming COO under a possible chairmanship role for Ev Williams. Though no leadership announcement was made that week, Peck clarified in a CNBC interview today that the company is likely doing significant due diligence rather than making a hasty CEO appointment. M&A POTENTIAL: In Monday's CNBC interview, Peck was pressed on whether Twitter could become an M&A candidate. The analyst mentioned Google as a potential buyer and commented that "if the products don't work, it's an M&A target," alluding to the numerous product catalysts mentioned in today's optimistic research note. Note that on August 5, Re/code quoted sources as saying the last truly meaningful merger conversation between the two companies took place about two years ago. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Twitter are up roughly 5% to $28.21 in intraday trading, adding almost $1.50 to Friday's $26.84 closing price.

07:05 EDTGOOGTwitter upgraded to Buy from Neutral at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Robert Peck upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Buy from Neutral ahead of a "series" of catalysts that he says are coming and may move the stock higher. Among the new initiatives and partnerships that could increase users and engagement for 2016, Peck lists Twitter's deal with Google (GOOG), its Project Lightning initiative and its potential for more business development deals similar to Flipboard. With Twitter shares down about 50% since the end of Q1, Peck believes sentiment on the microblog operator's shares has "washed out," he tells investors in his research note. Peck keeps a $38 price target on shares of Twitter, which closed Friday at $26.84.
