  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Alphabet is currently suffering from increasing litigation issues which might hurt its profitability. Moreover, it's increased spending on its consumer gadgets, YouTube video app and cloud computing services remain concerns. Also, estimates have been going down ahead of the company’s Q2 earnings release. The company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, Alphabet's focus on innovation, AI, cloud, home automation space, strategic acquisitions and Android OS should continue to aid its top-line growth. Further, its recent partnership with PayPal remains positive. Also, the company has shown good execution to date, more or less maintaining its dominant share in a competitive, fast-growing search market. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to on a 12-months basis. But, rising competition in the online advertisement market poses serious risk to the company's position."

  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We remain Hold rated with a $1,150 price target, however we are incrementally positive on Alphabet’s long-term position given strategic challenges facing Facebook. GOOGL shares currently trade at ~12x EV / 2019E adj. EBITDA and 23x 2019E GAAP EPS." (4/23/2018)
  • 3. Bank of America Corp analysts commented, "Sprint’s wireless revenue declined by 3% YOY in F3Q17, a 1% beat. Consolidated cash EBITDA of $1.73B beat our $1.69B estimate, growing 7% YOY, and a still low 21% margin. Phone adds of 184K were below our Street-low 225K estimate as T/VZ had strong quarters (BoGo/Unlimited/Video Bundling). Postpaid phone churn rose 13 bps to 1.71%, in line with our estimate, as Sprint keeps prices high. The company maintained EBITDA guidance but lowered CAPX guidance. Network speeds are up 60% YoY. Sprint has deployed 80K Magic Boxes and plans to deploy more than 1M, a very smart strategy. We look for color on 3Q trends from expiring promotional offers. Our main concerns are weak network coverage and revenue growth ." (2/2/2018)
