05:47 EDTYHOO, AAPL, TWTR, YELPApple potential deal for Beats sounds like 'bad idea,' says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says he struggles to see the rationale behind an Apple (AAPL) acquisition of Beats Electronics for $3.2B. Munster noted that he's not aware of any intellectual property within Beats that would drive the acquisition justification beyond the brand. He views internet services as Apple's biggest weakness, and thinks a better use of capital would be a potential takeover of Yelp (YELP), Twitter (TWTR), Square or even Yahoo (YHOO). Munster concludes that a potential acquisition of Beats by Apple "sounds like a bad idea."
