  IPG Photonics target raised to $120 at Needham; Buy  (113.58)Needham raises their IPGP tgt to $120 from $110 after preannouncing much stronger-than-expected Q4 results. Revs are now expected to be up an impressive 25% y/o/y, above the top end of prior guidance for 14-21% growth. EPS are expected to be up 22%-25% y/o/y, well above prior guidance of 3%-16%, suggesting strong GMs and improved operating leverage off the higher rev base. With the Q4 upside, revs for the full-year will have increased ~12%, consistent with the original guidance given at the start of 2016 before that was dialed back after the slow start to the year. Given the Q4 upside surprise and strong tone of the business entering the year, firm is raising their 2017 rev and EPS ests.

 Sanmina target raised to $45 at Needham — Beat goes on with execution across segments  (37.25)Needham raises their SANM tgt to $45 from $36. Despite various end market demand envm'ts remaining flattish to low growth, SANM continues to outperform owing to the magnitude of its continued new program momentum and the degree to which it has overhauled its customer and program portfolio into a more sustainable diversified base. Unsurprisingly, the Optical business continues to help drive the Communications segment while long-cycle/higher design markets such as Industrial, Medical, DSA and Automotive are all a part of the growth picture today and looking forward. Further the size of the F1Q beat demonstrates the power of the SANM model, which still has room for margin expansion through better revenue leverage in CPS as well as leverage on OpEx; Buy.

 European Summary

European Yields Mixed, Eurozone Growth Beats Forecasts

  • European sovereign yields are mixed today after a slew of economic data was released. Real GDP growth in the euro area was 1.7% in 2016, edging out U.S. growth of 1.6%. January inflation data for the eurozone showed prices rising faster than expected in January although core CPI inflation is still running at only 0.9% y/y, as expected. The euro moved sharply higher this morning after Trump's trade advisor, Peter Navarro, said that the euro is «grossly undervalued.» The impact of even fairly large currency fluctuations on growth in developed economies has been moderate in recent years and the euro remains near the lower end of its 15-year range
  • Greek yields are soaring again today as doubt mounts over whether the second review of Greece's bailout program will be completed in a timely fashion. An IMF report leaked on Monday said that Greece's debt dynamics would become «explosive» in 2022 and IMF participation is considered necessary by some eurozone countries for their assent to financial support for Greece. Klaus Regling, who heads up the European Financial Stability Facility, has said that the European creditors would only approve a fresh cash injection once the IMF has made a determination on its level of involvement. The IMF's decision is due next week. Regling hinted on Monday that the IMF involvement could be on a technical rather than financial basis, offering a glimmer of hope. Analysts now say that Greek sovereign yields are reflecting actual default/restructuring risk rather than simply the risk that Greek debt will not be included in the European Central Bank's asset purchase program

AAPL is their top stock pick for 2017, and the firm maintains Strong Buy and $150 Target Price. Sales by product: iPhone — revs of $53.04 bln, 78.1 mln units; iPad — revs of $6.7 bln, 14.85 mln units; Mac — revs of $6.45 bln, 5.25 mln units.
  • RBC said they have adjusted their Dec-quarter and FY17 rev estimates to reflect currency headwinds resulting from USD strength since November, partially offset by local price increases and f/x hedges. Also, firm's Mar-quarter adjustments reflect incremental production cuts that they understand AAPL has implemented recently to better manage their channel inventory. Firm's Dec-quarter rev estimate is reduced by ~70bps while EPS is lowered by ~0.05 vs. prior est. Notably, rev headwinds for AAPL could create GM headwinds as result of AAPL's USD-denominated costs, although hedges should partially offset some of the impact. Fundamentally, they remain positive on AAPL based on 1) potential for iPhone 8 super cycle, 2) continued growth in high-margin Services business, 3) new MacBook Pro product should revert Mac segment to y/y growth in CY17, 4) potential upside from Trump-onomics (taxes, cash repatriation), 5) attractive valuation (~8.5x EV/FCF).

Options Activity

  • Based on AAPL options, the current implied volatility stands at ~ 20%, which is 155% higher than historical volatility (over the past 30 days). Based on the AAPL Weekly Feb03 $118 straddle, the options market is currently pricing in a move of ~4% in either direction by weekly expiration (Friday).

Technical Perspective

  • AAPL shares have outperformed the Nasdaq so far this year with AAPL rising by 5% vs a 4% gain in the index. AAPL tends to have 4-6% reactions to earnings. On a positive report, look for resistance near the $122.00-122.50 area, while support sits near the $119.00-119.50 area.

Economic Data Summary:

  • Fourth Quarter Employment Cost Index 0.5% vs Briefing.com consensus of 0.6%; Third Quarter was 0.6%

 Morning Commodities: Crude snaps out of its 3-session downtrend ahead of this afternoon's API on headlines that OPEC has achieved over 1 mln barrels/day in oil output reductions
  • Crude oil broke out of its 3-session downtrend ahead of this afternoon's API on headlines that OPEC has achieved over 1 mln barrels/day in oil output reductions
    • Mar 2017 crude oil futures were up about $0.49 (+0.9%) around the $53.11/barrel level
    • Color on price action in crude:
      • Mar 2017 crude oil futures snapped out of a 3-session downtrend. Crude sharply reversed off of session lows after dropping as much as -0.7% initially, currently up nearly +1% following headlines that OPEC has cut more than 1 mln barrels/day of the promised 1.2 mln barrels/day in planned oil production cuts (the OPEC portion).
      • Crude oil supply from the 11 OPEC members with targeted production reductions avged 30.01 mln barrels/day in Jan, compared to 31.17 mln in Dec.
    • Other factors to consider:
      • U.S. oil production has risen by ~6.3% since July last year to almost 9 mln bpd, according to EIA data. Concerns these increases in US production will offset the coordinated OPEC/non-OPEC output reductions initially put pressure on crude futures in morning pit trading.
      • Also initially adding pressure on oil prices was this morning's statements from Goldman regarding an estimation that y/y U.S. oil production will rise by 290k barrels/day in 2017, if a backlog on rigs that are still to become operational is accounted for.
      • Note: The spread between Brent and WTI crude has been increasing, as market participants appear willing to pay a premium for Brent, as oil supply in the Middle East shrinks due to OPEC reductions, while US WTI crude oil is becoming increasingly plentiful.
    • Upcoming data:
      • API data will be released today at 4:30 pm ET.
      • EIA data will be released tomorrow at 10:30 am ET.
      • Baker Hughes rig count data will be released Friday at 1 pm ET.
  • Natural gas was on track to close lower for the 3rd consecutive session ahead of Thursday's inventory data
    • Mar 2017 natural gas futures were down about $0.08 (-2.6%) around the $3.15/MMBtu level
    • EIA natural gas inventory data will be released on Thursday at 10:30 am ET.
  • In precious metals, gold extended yesterday's gain, silver rallied on notable dollar index weakness
    • April 2017 gold futures were up $19.90 (+1.7%) around the $1215.80/oz level
    • Mar 2017 silver futures were up about $0.43 (+2.5%) around the $17.59/oz level
  • The dollar index was -0.9% around the 99.55 level, boosted precious metals in morning pit trading
    • Commodities, as measured by the Bloomberg Commodity Index, were +0.7% around the 87.66 level

 Surgery Partners initiation details — Buy at The Benchmark Company; tgt $24  (18.35 +0.20)The Benchmark Company initiates SGRY with a Buy and price target of $24. Largely as a result of 2 major acquisitions, SGRY has a portfolio of 104 outpatient surgical facilities in 28 states. SGRY's approach to the ASC market emphasizes a flexible, doctor-focused (i.e., two-way) model and a local market network of physician practices and ancillary services that expand avenues for growth and support ASC utilization. With this model, same-facility rev CAGR since 2012 has been < 10%, nearly twice that of larger peers. Since its IPO in October 2015, SGRY has steadily reduced leverage to 5.4x as of 12/31/16 with a target of under 4.5x next year. The leverage was assumed for a very good reason: the acquisition of Symbion prior to the IPO that more than doubled SGRY's size and created a national footprint. The benefits of that deal are now being realized in expense and rev synergies that firm expects to play out at least through 2017.

 Teva Pharma target lowered to $38 at Barclays — TEVA's loss, MNTA's gain  (33.36 -1.16)Barclays lowers their TEVA tgt to $38 from $46. With last night's U.S. District Court decision ruling in favor of the generics, firm sees an increasing likelihood of MNTA/Sandoz launching a generic version of TEVA's Copaxone 40mg in the near term, perhaps as soon as later today, upon FDA approval. MNTA and its commercial partner Sandoz still need FDA approval, although with a district court decision rendered, firm expects timely FDA action. TEVA will likely seek an injunction to block an at-risk launch, although given the facts of the case and IPR decisions invalidating three of the four patents in the case, firm thinks it's unlikely that will be granted. They don't believe TEVA's additional patents will block generics; Equal Weight.
