Spotify gains on Deutsche Bank upgrade

Spotify Technology (NYSE: SPOT ) shares gained more than 6% yesterday after Deutsche Bank upgraded the company to Buy from Hold with a price target of $180.00. According to the bank, investors should be using current weakness to buy the stock, calling the post-Q2 selloff "overdone".

The company reported its Q2 results on Tuesday, with both EPS and revenues coming in below the consensus estimates, while MAUs beat expectations.

Deutsche Bank mentioned several positives from the results. Top-of-funnel metrics continued to outpace expectations, and Q3 gross margin guide came in above consensus, albeit in line with buy-side projections. Additionally, operating losses showed further improvement.

According to the bank, estimates remain biased to the upside, noting the Q4 model impact by the announced price increases, ongoing momentum in MAUs and a conservative premium net add guide, as well as moderating podcast content investments.

Owens Corning upgraded following the Q2 beat

RBC Capital upgraded Owens Corning (NYSE: OC ) to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised its price target to $168.00 from $135.00, as reported in real time on InvestingPro.
