Brean Capital analyst Sarah Hindlian raised her price target for Facebook to $108 from $100 while telling investors to own the stock for the long haul. After analyzing the potential of the social networking giant's mobile applications, including Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, Hindlian's "bear case" analyses demonstrate that Facebook may have an incremental $4.0B in revenue in FY16 from monetization efforts. Only 25%-35% of this potential revenue is included in consensus estimates, the analyst states this morning in a research note. She reiterates a Buy rating on Facebook. The stock closed yesterday up 35c to $81.06.

In a regulatory filing, Dollar Tree (DLTR) announced that in connection with its proposed acquisition of Family Dollar Stores (FDO), the two parties signed an agreement containing consent orders proposed by the staff of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. The agreement includes a draft decision and order, which remains subject to acceptance and final approval by the FTC commissioners and would permit Dollar Tree to acquire Family Dollar subject to an obligation to complete the divestiture of 330 Family Dollar stores within a specified period following the closing of the acquisition. As previously announced, Dollar Tree has entered into an agreement to divest these 330 Family Dollar stores to Sycamore Partners. Dollar Tree intends to close its acquisition of Family Dollar shortly after the FTC accepts the decision and continues to expect the closing to occur in early July 2015.

06:31 EDTFBBelgian Privacy Commission adopts first recommendation of principle on Facebook
The Belgian Privacy Commission said in a statement that on May 13 it adopted a first recommendation of principle on Facebook. "It has observed that Facebook 'processes' the personal data of its members, users as well as of all internet users who come into contact with Facebook. Facebook does this secretively: no consent is asked for this 'tracking and tracing' and the use of cookies. No targeted information is provided. The available information is vague and authorizes just about anything. Following the introduction of new worldwide terms of use by Facebook, a number of European privacy commissions queried Facebook, which was particularly sparing with precise answers and also refused to comply with the request to postpone the entry into force of the new terms of use. Facebook did not accept that it was bound by the national privacy legislation of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It rejected the competence of those countries' supervisory authorities for privacy. Facebook only accepts supervision by the Irish privacy commission and the application of Irish law.After months of unsuccessful correspondence and fruitlessly exchanging ideas, the Belgian Privacy Commission has now adopted a first recommendation. This document establishes first of all that the Belgian Privacy Commission is competent and that Belgian law also applies to Facebook, simply because any national supervisory authority is obliged to ensure privacy protection for its citizens. And Belgian law also applies because the Facebook Group has an actual establishment in Brussels, Belgium. At the request of the Belgian Privacy Commission the inter-university research center EMSOC/SPION conducted a detailed study into the way in which Facebook deals with its members' personal data. And that of citizens who do not use Facebook or who explicitly opted out of its service.The research results are disconcerting. Facebook disregards European and Belgian privacy legislation in several ways. In 10 chapters an equal amount of issues have been uncovered. It is the Belgian Privacy Commission's ambition to thoroughly look into these issues. Until today, the eighth chapter - 'tracking trough social plug-ins' - has been the focus of attention, because it does not only impact Facebook users but also virtually every Internet user in Belgium and Europe. Up to this day Facebook refuses to recognize the application of Belgian legislation nor the Belgian Privacy Commission. Until now it has always contested the findings of the EMSOC/SPION research report, but it has not provided concrete facts repudiating them. To the contrary: Facebook recognizes that errors, 'BUGS' have been uncovered." Reference Link

09:08 EDTMCPMolycorp to take advantage of grace period on interest due on certain notes
Molycorp announced that it has elected to take advantage of the 30-day grace period with respect to the approximately $3.36M semi-annual interest payment due June 15 on its 3.25% Senior Unsecured Convertible Notes due 2016, as provided for in the indenture governing the notes. "This election by the company will not trigger any cross-default provisions in other outstanding company debt prior to the end of the grace period and should not affect current operations. As previously disclosed, the company has retained financial and legal advisors to assist the company in restructuring its debt. The company will use the grace period to continue to evaluate different options related to such debt restructuring," Molycorp stated.

07:33 EDTBACBig banks may target fee-generating firms for acquisitions, WSJ says
Large U.S. banks may begin targeting fee-generating businesses as possible takeover targets, the Wall Street Journal reports. Big banks may start looking at businesses that don’t require too much capital for acquisitions, such as advisory businesses, payment processing, treasury services, and financial tech, the report says. Even though heightened capital and liquidity requirements make many types of acquisitions “unappealing” to big banks, the idea of banks even as big as JP Morgan (JPM) pursuing a multi-billion dollar deal is “no longer out of the realm of possibility,” the report says. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
