05:42 EDTEBAYeBay downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster downgraded eBay (EBAY) to Underweight, the firm's sell-equivalent rating, saying competition from Google Wallet (GOOG), Apple Pay (AAPL), Facebook (FB) and Samsung will weigh on PayPal's valuation and market share over the next three years. Munster notes shares of eBay are up 12% since the beginning of February due to optimism around the PayPal spin-out. He cut his price target for shares to $49 from $55. The online marketplace and PayPal owner closed yesterday down $1.07 to $58.42.

13:59 EDTST-Mobile announces 'Un-contract,' 'Carrier Freedom' initiatives
Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.

12:39 EDTSCHNSteels stocks lower after report of rising China exports, analyst note
Steel stocks are lower after a Wall Street Journal report on increasing Chinese steel exports and an analyst note that lowered price targets on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: A Wall Street Journal report from Sunday night pointed out that China's steel exports rose 63% to 9.2M tons in January from a year earlier. China produces as much steel as the rest of the world combined and as the country's growth slows it is shipping its excess steel overseas, resulting in lower prices and spurring steel producers around the globe to seek government protection. ANALYST VIEW: In a note to investors, Jefferies said steel fundamentals stayed challenging throughout the first quarter and the firm lowered its price targets on a number of names in the sector to account for its reduced estimates. Jefferies lowered its price target on U.S. Steel (X) to $21 from $26, cut its price target on Schnitzer Steel (SCHN) to $17 from $20, reduced its price target on Nucor (NUE) to $57 from $61, and trimmed its target on AK Steel (AKS) to $3.75 from $4.75. Jefferies noted that a majority of its contacts expect steel prices to trough sometime in the second quarter and the firm said it believes "mini-mill" producers like Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor are best positioned in the group. PRICE ACTION:In midday trading, United States Steel is down 1.24%, AK Steel is lower by 2%, Schnitzer Steel Industries is down 4.3%, Steel Dynamics is down 0.96%, and Nucor is up fractionally.

11:19 EDTVRTXBioMarin rallies amid positive call on DMD drug timeline, takeover rumor
The shares of drug maker BioMarin (BMRN) are climbing after research firm Jefferies quoted a regulatory expert as saying that the company's drisapersen drug has a good chance of being approved on an accelerated basis by the FDA. Drisapersen is a treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, or DMD. WHAT'S NEW: "There is a strong possibility" that the FDA will grant accelerated approval to drisapersen because there is currently no approved drug for the treatment of DMD, Jefferies analyst Eun Yang quoted the expert as saying. The expert is also optimistic about the outlook for accelerated approval because she had a good experience working with BioMarin while she was with the FDA and because BioMarin has a favorable track record with the FDA, according to Yang. There is a 60% chance that drisapersen will be approved by the end of this year and the stock can rise to $155, versus its current level of about $121.50, if that does occur, the analyst stated. Yang's price target on the stock increased to $135 from $125 and the analyst kept a Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca (AZN) has been rumored to be interested in buying BioMarin for $175 per share in cash, British newspaper Daily Mail reported. , Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer wrote in a note to investors this morning that BioMarin, along with Vertex (VRTX) and Incyte (INCY), have a "clear path" to joining the group of companies with market caps of over $10B projected to deliver greater than 20% EPS CAGR, which the analyst identified as a set of criteria that has previously pointed to companies that make good potential takeover targets. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, BioMarin climbed nearly 4% to $120.
