NEWS BRIEFS

(AAPL)  Apple Inc.

(2/9/2010) Needham & Company raised its price target on Apple to $280, from $235. Needham cites forecasts of stronger sales of the MAC and iPhone, and projected  contribution from sales of the iPad to Apple's valuation.



(ABX)   Barrick Gold Corp.

(2/8/2010) Deutsche Bank has initiated coverage of Barrick Gold with a rating of hold. The firm says it prefers gold companies with higher free cash flow. Deutsche Bank projected gold prices to average around $1,150 an ounce in 2010 and $1,250 in 2011



(AMZN)  Amazon.com Inc.

(2/8/2010) Collins Stewart raised its rating on Amazon.com to buy, and set at a price target at $150. Collins Stewart believes that after falling 15 percent from its recent highs, Amazon is at an attractive entry point. Collins Stewart cautions that higher competition remains a concern for the Kindle franchise. However, the firm says the Kindle ecosystem is much bigger than Wall Street previously thought. Collins Stewart analyst Sandeep Aggarwal has produced an estimate that Amazon will sell 3.85 million Kindles in 2010. He projects that this will amount to 2.5 billion in sales and produce a profit $650 million.  In a research note Aggarwal wrote, "Though Wal-Mart and e-Bay are clearly trying to compete more effectively with Amazon for the growing E-Commerce market, Amazon, remains the gold standard with operational excellence, scale, and customer satisfaction second to none. In addition to being the biggest beneficiary of the secular adoption of E-Commerce, Amazon will continue to drive benefits from new categories in the US, expanding categories internationally, upside in FBA, and higher propensity to purchase by Prime members."



(BRK.B) Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

(2/8/2010) In the "Blue Chip Investor" dated 02/01/10, editor Steven Check comments on the Berkshire stock split. He points out that the split does not change the intrinsic value of Berkshire Hathaway. Nor does inclusion in the S&P 500 index have an effect on the earnings of its subsidiaries. Check points out that since Berkshire's acquisitions are done with cash, a higher share price caused by inclusion in the S&P 500 would not aid in future acquisitions. Check believes the intrinsic value of Berkshire is approximately $94 per share.



(DIS)   Walt Disney Company

(2/8/2010) JPMorgan raised its rating on Disney to Neutral.



(ECA)   EnCana Corp.

(2/12/2010) Canaccord Adams raised its rating on EnCana from hold to buy, and its price target from $32 to $35. Canaccord believes that key resource plays will continue to be EnCana’s growth engine and its means to maintain control over costs. In a research note, Canaccord Adams wrote, "The emerging Devonian shale resource play at Horn River is graduating to commercial development, providing visible growth for several years. The company is in a strong financial position with forecasted debt to cash flow of 1.7x and has a low cost structure."



(GG)    Goldcorp Inc.

(2/8/2010) Deutsche Bank has initiated coverage of Goldcorp with a rating of hold. The firm says it prefers gold companies with higher free cash flow. Deutsche Bank projected gold prices to average around $1,150 an ounce in 2010 and $1,250 in 2011.



(KGC)   Kinross Gold Corporation

(2/8/2010) Deutsche Bank has initiated coverage of Kinross Gold with a rating of buy. The firm says it prefers gold companies with higher free cash flow. Deutsche Bank projected gold prices to average around $1,150 an ounce in 2010 and $1,250 in 2011.

A 2011 estimate was initiated at $1.00. In a research note the firm wrote that, "While we maintain our Market Perform rating for now given increasing chipset revenue risk in 2H10 and 2011, we could look to get more constructive on shares if earnings power ramps more than expected, or if the stock moves down towards the $13, $14 level."
 
(2/10/2010) Oppenheimer has raised its price target on Nvidia from $20 to $24.



(PBR)   Petroleo Brasileiro SA

(2/10/2010) Credit Suisse issued an analyst note saying that the share price of Petrobras has been damaged by misconceptions regarding it planned share sale. Credit Suisse rates Petrobras at outperform and has a price target of $58.
