JPMorgan removes Apple from the focus list JPMorgan removed the tech giant from its focus list, saying it needs more "clarity" on the "magnitude" of the consumer spending pullback. "we believe its apt to moderate our near-term bullishness for shares of AAPL and QCOM, which we have had on the Analyst Focus List, as we look for clarity on the magnitude of the Consumer spending pull-back, and instead pivot to adding our top-picks in Networking Equipment, Arista and Ciena, to the Analyst Focus List as we expect strong resiliency in spending from both Telecom customers towards their networks, as well as from cloud companies towards building infrastructure to support workload migration to the cloud."

"It has been a tough year so far for growth stocks like EW, which is down 9.6% YTD versus the S & P 500's 3.4% decline.

Goldman Sachs reiterates Tesla as buy Goldman said in a note to clients on Friday that it's cautious heading into Tesla's delivery numbers this weekend. "Overall, while we believe that demand is very strong and indicators suggest that shipments had been tracking up modestly qoq and ahead of the Street, the shutdown of Giga Shanghai during the last week of the quarter and the related logistics challenges in China imply to us that there could be some slight downside to our 315K delivery estimate and that deliveries could end up being in line to modestly above the Street." Baird downgrades Walgreens to neutral from outperform Baird said in its downgrade of the stock that it's "too complicated at present."

Oppenheimer reiterates Papa John's as outperform Oppenheimer said in a note to clients on Friday that investors should buy the dip in shares of the pizza chain. " PZZA' s first quarter pull-back of -21% (vs S & P's -5%) creates a top-pick buying opportunity based on our updated work. We believe the buy-side bar has been overly reduced on sales concerns and commodity cost increases." Oppenheimer reiterates Roku as outperform Oppenheimer said that Roku's stock is relatively insulated from European economic weakness. "While we are now more cautious on '22E active account growth, we see ROKU as among the most insulated stocks to European economic weakness."
