09:56 EDTAAPLIDC: Apple leads smartphone vendors in China during Q1
IDCís latest Mobile Phone Tracker shows the China smartphone market contracted by 4% year-on-year with 98.8M units shipped in the first quarter of 2015. This is the first time in six years that the China smartphone market declined YoY as the market continues to mature. On a QoQ basis, the market contracted 8% on the back of a large inventory buildup at the end of last year. The study said Apple (AAPL) was the top smartphone vendor in China in the first quarter, with consumers still having a strong appetite for the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Xiaomi slipped to the second position as it faced strong competition from other vendors in the low to mid-range segment of the market, while Huawei maintained third position as it saw a good uptake in the mid-range segment. Samsung (SSNLF) and Lenovo (LNVGY) both led the market at least once last year, but rankings have since changed quickly, highlighting the volatility of consumers' brand preference in China.

13:55 EDTGOOGAnalysts say Yelp sale more likely than not
There is a 60% chance that Yelp (YELP) will be acquired for $59-$85 per share, Deutsche Bank wrote in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, research firm Jefferies contended that Google (GOOG) is the company that is most likely to buy Yelp. WHAT'S NEW: There is a 60% chance that Yelp will be acquired for $59-$85 per share, Deutsche analyst Lloyd Walmsley wrote in a note to investors earlier today. If the company is not acquired, the stock will fall 32% from current levels, the analyst predicted. Given its status as a winner in the local Internet sector, its huge user base and its global presence, Yelp should draw a great deal of interest, the analyst believes. Since its user reviews and community are difficult to replicate, the company should receive a premium from an acquirer, added Walmsley, who raised his price target to $56 from $51 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. Google is the most logical acquirer of Yelp, according to Jefferies analyst Brian Pitz, who noted that it had previously tried to buy the company in 2009. Google has been unable to obtain the local reviews that draw consumers to small and medium businesses, according to Pitz. Traditional search engine marketing through Google is too difficult for these businesses, according to the analyst. The biggest hurdle to a takeover of Yelp by Google is the companies' "rocky historic relationship," he believes. The analyst kept a $79 price target and Buy rating on Yelp. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Yelp could be sold for more than $3.5B, Piper Jaffray said it thought there was a greater than 50% chance of the company being acquired. The firm said the most logical buyers of Yelp are Google, Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL), since all three would benefit from further traction in local ads and would gain technological synergies from acquiring Yelp. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Yelp advanced 6.5% to $50.

07:38 EDTGOOGJefferies puts Google atop list of potential Yelp buyers
Jefferies laid out potential buyers for Yelp (YELP) after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company hired bankers to explore a sale. A Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Yelp (YELP) combination makes the most sense, the firm believes. It points out Google unsuccessfully tried to buy Yelp for $550M in 2009. Other potential buyers include Facebook (FB), Priceline (PCLN), GrubHub (GRUB) and Yahoo (YHOO), the firm notes. Jefferies views Yelp as a highly valuable asset and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $79 price target. Deutsche Bank today pegged the chances of a Yelp buyout at 60% and estimates a takeout price between $59 and $85 per share. The stock closed yesterday up $8.79 to $47.01 following the Journal's report.
