Here Are All Of Morgan Stanley's Internet Stock Rating And Price Target Changes

Rating And Price Target Changes For Internet Names|Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak has changed his perspective on the internet industry from attractive to in line. The analyst believes it would not be easy to find multiple expansions for driving the sector in the upcoming periods.

Therefore, the brokerage prefers names from large-cap bellwethers that provide attractive growth-adjusted valuations apart from uptrend revisions. The analyst pointed out that the sector has outperformed the broader index by 4,700 basis points since the beginning of 2015.

In a research note to clients, Nowak said, "We see a more balanced risk-reward following ~4,700bp sector outperformance vs. the market YTD and now see both large and Smid-cap valuations in-line with growth-adjusted historical levels. More specifically, we remain bullish on Facebook Inc FB 1.25%, Priceline Group Inc PCLN 1.58%, Alphabet Inc GOOGL 1.31%, and, Inc. AMZN 1.49%."

In all, the brokerage reviewed six stocks and lifted the price target on four companies while downgrading the rating on three stocks. The analyst retained the price tag on one company.
