13:16 EDTGOOGAngie's List retreats after Amazon reportedly launches local services site
Shares of Angie's List (ANGI) are sinking after The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Amazon.com (AMZN) had launched a website that will connect consumers to local service providers. Angie's List connects users to local contractors and publishes consumers' reviews of contractors. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon.com launched its website featuring information about local contractors in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, The Journal reported, citing an unnamed source who was briefed on the company's plan. Called Amazon Local Services, the website is part of the e-commerce giant's attempt to compete with traditional stores, The Journal said. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Reuters reported last June that Amazon planned to launch a local services website. Last month, research firm Wunderlich said that Angie's List could be a logical takeover target for Amazon or eBay (EBAY). Wunderlich issued its note after The Financial Times reported that Angie's List had hired bankers to help it explore strategic options, including a possible sale of the company. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian wrote that Amazon's service should be appealing to users searching for local services or shopping for products that have to be serviced. Moreover, service providers should also find value in Amazon's website, Sebastian stated. Service providers will only have to pay Amazon a share of the revenue they receive from customers they obtain from the website, the analyst wrote. Also, Amazon's popularity will enable it to bring meaningful amounts of business to the service providers, Sebastian wrote. He kept a $340 price target and Outperform rating on Amazon shares. Sebastian also noted that the market is increasingly competitive, with Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the other public companies in the space, and he said he expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Angie's List fell 4% to $6 and Amazon slid 1% to $332.50.

11:10 EDTAAPL, GOOGWorldwide tablet growth expected to slow to 7.2% in 2014, IDC says
The worldwide tablet market is expected to see a massive deceleration in 2014 with year-over-year growth slowing to 7.2%, down from 52.5% in 2013, according to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC). At the core of this slowdown is the expectation that 2014 will represent the first full year of decline in Apple iPad shipments. Both the iPad and the overall market slowdown do not come as a surprise as device lifecycles for tablets have continued to lengthen, increasingly resembling those of PCs more than smartphones. "The tablet market continues to be impacted by a few major trends happening in relevant markets," said Ryan Reith, Program Director with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "In the early stages of the tablet market, device lifecycles were expected to resemble those of smartphones, with replacement occurring every 2-3 years. What has played out instead is that many tablet owners are holding onto their devices for more than 3 years and in some instances more than 4 years. We believe the two major drivers for longer than expected tablet lifecycles are legacy software support for older products, especially within iOS, and the increased use of smartphones for a variety of computing tasks." Publicly traded companies in the space include Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS). Reference Link

16:34 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in quiet fashion and trading remained that way throughout the day. The Dow and S&P moved in a narrow range and hugged the flat line, while the Nasdaq drifted steadily higher and added nearly 1% by the close of trade. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index fell to 0.14 in October, versus expectations for a reading of 0.33. Markit's services PMI fell to 56.3 in the flash reading for November, versus expectations for a slight increase to 57.3 from its prior reading of 57.1. The Dallas Fed manufacturing index was steady at 10.5 in November, versus expectations for a 9.0 reading. Overseas, the euro area’s largest economy, Germany, saw a business climate index advance to 104.7 in November from 103.2 in October, beating economists' prediction for a decline to a reading of 103. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) had a role in the Nasdaq's outperformance, as the tech giant climbed after a number of research firms, including Susquehanna, Cantor and KGI Research, were upbeat on the outlook for the company's performance during the holiday season. The iPhone maker's stock rose $2.15, or 1.85%, to close at $118.62 to close just below the 52-week high of $118.77 it hit late in the session... United Technologies (UTX) fell $1.51, or 1.37%, to $108.79 after the Dow member announced that Louis Chenevert had retired as Chairman and CEO, effective immediately. The company reaffirmed its expectations for 2014 earnings per share and sales, but provided little information regarding the abrupt exit of the executive. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Prosensa (RNA), which surged $7.16, or 62.59%, to $18.60 after the small drugmaker agreed to be acquired by larger BioMarin (BMRN). After the deal announcement BioMarin shares also rose $2.11, or 2.46%, to $87.94, while Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which is working on a Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment to rival Prosensa's, advanced 88c, or 5.59%, to $16.61. Also higher was Cimatron (CIMT), which jumped $2.57, or 42.27%, to $8.65 after 3D Systems (DDD) agreed to buy the company for approximately $97M, or $8.97 per share, in cash. Among the noteworthy losers was Ring Energy (REI), which fell $1.28, or 9.54%, to $12.14 after Canaccord downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy, citing the the recent decline in crude oil prices and the potential need for the company to raise capital. Also lower were shares of Potash (POT), which fell $2.23, or 6.09%, to $34.40, and Mosaic (MOS), which slid $1.75, or 3.71%, to $45.46 after Russia's Uralkali, the world's largest potash producer, was reported to be set to start repair work at part of its damaged mine. INDEXES: The Dow added 7.84, or 0.04%, to 17,817.90, the Nasdaq rose 41.92, or 0.89%, to 4,754.89, and the S&P 500 gained 5.91, or 0.29%, to 2,069.41.

Stocks on Wall Street gained after China's central bank cut interest rates for the first time in over two years to bolster its economy. Additionally, the head of Europe's central bank said he was determined to do what is needed to ensure the area's economy does not once again fall into crisis. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Kansas City Fed manufacturing index for November had a reading of 7, compared to the consensus forecast for a reading of 6. In Asia, the People's Bank of China unexpectedly cut interest rates, slashing the one-year lending rate by 40 basis points and the one-year deposit rate by 25 basis points. The move, which was the central bank's first interest rate cut since 2012, surprised markets around the globe. In Europe, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said indicators have been declining to levels he would deem "excessively low" and that he is determined to use more aggressive measures, such as large scale asset purchases, as needed. COMPANY NEWS: Microsoft (MSFT) was the worst performer on the Dow after Jefferies initiated coverage of the stock with an Underperform rating. Microsoft's stock has rallied 30% in the last year, but the company is still facing the same fundamental problems as in previous years, Jefferies analyst John DiFucci wrote. He set a $40 price target on the shares, which slipped 74c, or 1.5%, to $47.97. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ross Stores (ROST), which advanced $6.06, or 7.28%, to $89.27 after the company reported stronger than expected Q3 results. Also higher were shares of Caterpillar (CAT), which rose $4.36, or 4.27%, to $106.45 amid the quantitative easing actions taken abroad and after research firm Stifel initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating. Among the noteworthy losers was GameStop (GME), which sunk $5.68, or 13.05%, to $37.86 after the video game retailer's third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit forecasts, trailed consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of The Gap (GPS), which dropped $1.68, or 4.19%, to $38.46 after the owner of Banana Republic, Old Navy and its namesake clothing brand lowered its fiscal year profit outlook. INDEXES: The Dow rose 91.06, or 0.5%, to 17,810.06, the Nasdaq gained 11.10, or 0.24%, to 4,712.97, and the S&P 500 added 10.75, or 0.52%, to 2,063.50.

Jefferies initiated shares of Microsoft with an Underperform rating after the closing bell, saying the "new" Microsoft will look very much like the "old" Microsoft for some time. The firm attributes the 30% rally in shares over the past year to optimism around new management, but it thinks the tech giant's fundamentals remain challenged despite its focus on cloud and mobile given its dependency on the PC market. Jefferies put a $40 price target on the stock. Microsoft closed the trading day up 48c to $48.70.

06:28 EDTMSFT, GOOG, AAPLBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link

He thinks most consumers will wait to purchase an iPhone and maintains an Overweight rating on Apple. The stock closed yesterday down 80c to $114.67.

Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) hit a new 52-week high after the company announced three new partnership deals. The company is slated to hold its analyst day today, starting at 3:30 PM ET. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry announced that it would partner with Samsung to provide a security solution for the South Korean company's mobile devices that utilize Google's (GOOG) Android operating system. Under the deal, BlackBerry’s BES12, an Enterprise Mobility Management system, or EMM that was launched today, will be integrated with some of Samgung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets. BES 12 "securely manages devices from all of the major enterprise mobile platforms" and "will help organizations securely connect employees with each other and with the corporate information and machines” they need, BlackBerry stated. Also today, Blackberry announced that it would connect its EMM solutions to Salesforce's (CRM) top customer relationship management platform. "This agreement will allow Salesforce and BlackBerry joint customers to run their businesses from their phone while complying with specific industry regulations," said Vivek Kundra, a Salesforce Executive Vice President in a statement. "BlackBerry has an excellent reputation in security and networks, and when matched with the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, public sector organizations can use their mobile devices to connect with customers in a whole new way," added Kundra. Finally, BlackBerry announced that Brightstar would distribute BES 12. BlackBerry described Brightstar as "the world's largest wireless distribution company and leader in services for the wireless industry." WHAT'S NOTABLE: BES12 is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) in the enterprise space. Apple earlier this year announced that it was partnering with IBM (IBM) in an effort to sell more products to corporate customers. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, BlackBerry jumped 6% to $11.95. Earlier today the shares set a new 52-week high of $12.05.
