Deutsche Bank reiterates Amazon as buy Deutsche said “macro challenges are no doubt pressuring ad budgets” for Amazon, but the company continues to be well positioned. “Consistent with Amazon’s earnings, conversations with advertisers suggested the demand environment remained strong for the majority of 3Q, but tightened a bit exiting the quarter, especially in discretionary categories.” Morgan Stanley reiterates Apple as overweight Morgan Stanley said in a review of Apple’s annual report that this is the first time in “at least 5 years that the App Store was not Apple’s #1 or #2 Services driver for the fiscal year.” ” Apple’s 10-K highlights that the three largest drivers of Services net sales growth in FY22 were: 1) advertising, 2) cloud services, and 3) App Store.” Barclays upgrades First Solar to equal weight from underweight Barclays said it sees strength in bookings for the company. “Demand for domestically-manufactured products support FSLR’s pricing power while its almost sold-out status through 2026 kicks the concern about potential ASP deterioration down the road Credit Suisse downgrades Charles Schwab to neutral from outperform Credit Suisse downgraded the stock mainly on valuation. “We Downgrade SCHW to Neutral (from Outperform) – As client cash sorting angst is now assuaged, in our view, while high-quality nature of the platform is better understood.
