11:42 EDTAAPLPiper's Munster questions smaller iPhone announcement in March
Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster offered his thoughts on 9to5Mac's report that Apple will hold an event in March to announce a new Apple Watch, iPad Air 3 and four inch iPhone. While the timing for a new Watch and iPad Air 3 make sense, it does not for the smaller iPhone, Munster tells investors in an intraday research note. A smaller phone in the spring would be quickly outdated when the redesigned iPhone 7 comes out in six months, the analyst argues. He maintains an Overweight rating on Apple with a $172 price target.

06:48 EDTAAPLTablet market continued to decline in Q4, VentureBeat says
The tablet market continues to see a decline, with 4Q15 representing the fifth straight quarter to see a year-over-year decrease in shipments, VentureBeat reports, citing market research firm IDC. 65.9M tablet units shipped in Q4, a decline of 13.7% from 76.4M units in the same period last year, the report says. Shipments for FY15 were down 10.1% year over year to 206.8M, the report says. In Q4, top five vendors Apple (AAPL), Samsung (SSNLF), Amazon (AMZN), Lenovo (LNVGY), and Huawei accounted for 54.2% of the market, up from 51% last year, though only Amazon and Huawei grew their own market share year over year, the report says.

06:26 EDTFBStifel cuts Twitter to Sell after noting Yahoo has significantly more users
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Sell from Hold after "materially lowering" his forward estimates for the company. Twitter is a product that has "never fully developed into a sustainable public company," Devitt tells investors in a research note. To those that believe the microblog's 320M active user base is significant, the analyst points out that Yahoo (YHOO) still reports 1B monthly active users across its network and AOL's final public disclosure last year prior to its acquisition by Verizon (VZ) still showed nearly 200M unique visitors. Twitter will be challenged to reach its near- and long-term financial expectations, the analyst contends. Devitt points out that Facebook (FB) continues to generate over two times as much advertising revenue per monthly active user in the U.S. as Twitter. He has a $14 price target for the shares. Twitter closed yesterday up $1.10 to $17.90 after The Information reported that Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog operator.

08:20 EDTFBTwitter jumps after The Information breaks potential deal
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) are rising in pre-market trading after tech reporter Jessica Lessin said private equity firm Silver Lake and investor Marc Andreessen and have "considered some sort of deal" for the microblog service operator. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Lessin said in her report published on her site, The Information, that she did not know if deal considerations are "active" now with Andreessen and private equity firm Silver Lake. Silver Lake calls itself "the global leader in technology investing," stating that it has over $26B in combined assets under management. FREQUENT SPECULATION TARGET: Twitter has often been the subject of takeover rumors in the past year. Last April, Re/code's Kurt Wagner reported that Google (GOOG) and Facebook (FB) had looked at a potential acquisition of Twitter in the past, but noted at that time that neither tech giant was in discussions to acquire the social network owner. On January 20, News Corp. (NWSA) declined comment to CNBC regarding speculation about its potential interest in acquiring Twitter. Speculation also circulated the same day regarding an activist investor taking an interest in Twitter, trading sources told The Fly. PRICE ACTION: In pre-market trading near 8:15 am ET, Twitter rose 7% to $18 per share.
