10:43 EDTEAZillow slides to 52-week low after Barclays cuts to sell
The shares of Zillow (Z) are falling after Barclays downgraded the stock to Underweight, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell" rating, citing increased competition in the "local" segment of the Internet market. Zillow's websites advertise homes that are up for sale. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Barclays analyst Christopher Merwin wrote that, heading into second quarter results, he does not recommend Internet stocks that have been "challenged" and have relatively "cheap" valuations. These valuations are only "cheap" based on consensus estimates that are probably too high, the analyst believes. Based on that criteria, he downgraded Zillow to Underweight from Equal Weight. He also used the same criteria to downgrade Yelp (YELP), whose website features user reviews of local businesses, to Equal Weight from Overweight. Both companies are facing an "atypical level" of competition, driven by a favorable venture capital funding environment, Merwin indicated. The competition has driven down the companies' multiples, he believes. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Merwin recommended that investors buy the shares of small and mid cap Internet companies whose estimates are just beginning to be revised upwards by analysts. He identified IAC (IACI), which owns several dating websites, as one stock in this category. IAC should benefit from increased monetization of its popular Tinder dating app and the stabilization of its core dating websites, the analyst contended. Also poised for further positive estimate revisions are video game makers Electronic Arts (EA) and Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Merwin believes. The companies' increased revenue from digital games should mitigate the risk they face from slowing software growth as sales of new consoles slow, the analyst believes. He noted that 50% of both companies' revenue are now generated from digital games and identified Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard as two of his top ideas. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Zillow fell 5% to $79 after hitting a 52-week low of $76.82 earlier in the session. Meanwhile, Yelp slid 1.6% to $34.40, IAC fell fractionally to $83.83, Electronic Arts added about 1% to $74.15 and activision Blizzard rose 0.5% to $25.93.
05:44 EDTEAZillow Group downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Christopher Merwin downgraded Zillow Group (Z) to Underweight saying competition is increasing in local. Underweight is Barclays' equivalent to a sell rating. The real estate and rental marketplace owner closed Friday at $83.27. Merwin believes consensus growth estimates are likely too high heading into Zillow's Q2 results and cut his price target for the stock to $70 from $90. The analyst this morning also downgraded Yelp (YELP) to Equal Weight for similar reasons. His top U.S. Internet picks heading into Q2 earnings season are IAC (IACI), Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Electronic Arts (EA). Merwin thinks Activision and Electronic Arts will receive more than half of their 2015 revenue from digital.
