07:38 EDTFBJefferies 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.
06:22 EDTNFLX, FBCitigroup sees internet stocks underperforming this summer
Citigroup analyst Mark May says that even with the recent share pullbacks, the broader internet index has still meaningfully outperformed broader indices year-to-date. The group is nearing peak valuations, which could lead to underperformance through the summer, May tells investors today in a research note. He recommends avoiding shares of Twitter (TWTR), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Zillow Group (Z), as the companies are going through business transitions. The analyst believes Amazon.com (AMZN), eBay (EBAY), Yelp (YELP), Netflix (NFLX), GrubHub (GRUB) and Facebook (FB) have company specific factors that should enable them to outperform the internet group over the near term.
