07:31 EDTAMZNGrubHub downgraded on competition concerns at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein downgraded GrubHub (GRUB) to Perform from Outperform saying he's increasingly concerned that competition from Amazon.com (AMZN) and Uber in New York will cut into the company's sales and profitability. The analyst sees downside risk to the stock despite the recent selloff and thinks a takeover is unlikely in the near term. Helfstein suspended his $30 price target for the shares. The online platform for restaurant pick-up and delivery orders closed yesterday up 13% to $21.53 following its Q4 results.

15:17 EDTGOOGObama to propose $300B in investments in 'clean transportation,' Politico says
Aides to President Barack Obama told Politico the president will propose more than $300B worth of investments over the next decade in "clean transportation," such as mass transit, high-speed rail and self-driving cars, and will call for a $10 "fee" on every barrel of oil to be paid by oil companies to fund the plan. The report added that there is "no real chance that the Republican-controlled Congress will embrace Obama's grand vision of climate-friendly mobility in an election year." Tesla (TSLA), Mobileye (MBLY) and Google (GOOG) are among companies that have been working on self-driving automobile technology. Reference Link

11:15 EDTQCOMBroadcom, Analog Devices seen as beneficiaries of cellular/Wi-Fi convergence
Shares of three companies involved in cellular and Wi-Fi technology -- Broadcom Limited (AVGO), Analog Devices (ADI), and Microsemi Corporation (MSCC) -- are all trading higher after a Sterne Agee research note suggested they would benefit from a trend toward the convergences of the two communications technologies. WHAT'S NEW: On February 3, Qualcomm (QCOM) and Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) announced that, through the aggregation of licensed and unlicensed spectrum bands, recent testing demonstrated the ability of LTE Licensed-Assisted Access, or LAA, to extend coverage and increase network capacity, while delivering seamless mobility, and ensuring a fair coexistence with Wi-Fi in unlicensed spectrum. "LAA is one of the key technologies that will help satisfy the increasing demand for data and better mobile connectivity," said Deutsche Telekom Chief Technology Officer Bruno Jacobfeuerborn. "The trial will help the wireless ecosystem and key stakeholders verify and experience the benefits of LAA first hand." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Sterne Agee CRT analyst Douglas Freedman believes the line between cellular and Wi-Fi is likely to blur, pointing to the Qualcomm-Deutsche Telekom partnership as an example of this technology trend. Freedman said three stocks that could benefit from the shift are Broadcom Limited, given its premium RF filtering and Wi-Fi connectivity solutions, Analog Devices, because of its increased data converter content in small cell applications, and Microsemi Corporation, due to its Wi-Fi access point and timing enablers. The firm has Buy ratings on all three stocks. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Broadcom was trading higher by 2.2%, Analog Devices was up fractionally and Microsemi rose 1%.

10:25 EDTAMZN, GOOG$25B cloud boost seen coming for Amazon, Microsoft, Google
Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOGL, GOOG) are all poised to get huge boosts from their cloud businesses over the next three years, research firm Pacific Crest wrote in a note to investors today. The combined revenue from their cloud initiatives should surge $25B over the next three years as companies move more workloads to the cloud from legacy IT systems, the firm believes. NEXT MAJOR CLOUD CYCLE: The revenue of Amazon's cloud business, AWS, could triple to $25B by 2018, according to Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson. Moreover, by 2018, AWS could account for 14% of the company's revenue and over 50% of its profits, up from 7% and 41%, respectively, today, the analyst predicts. Meanwhile, within three years, Microsoft's revenue from its commercial cloud business could jump 50% to $25B, the analyst stated. By 2018, the business could account for almost 25% of the tech giant's revenue and 15% of its profits, up from 15% of its revenue and very little of its profit today, the analyst added. Google's revenue from infrastructure as a service, a form of cloud computing, can surge 500% over the next three years to about $4.5B, Wilson believes. Additionally, noting that AWS' incremental operating margin came in at 51.9% last quarter, Wilson believes that investors are underestimating the profitability of cloud businesses. The analyst maintained an $800 price target and Overweight rating on Amazon, a $65 price target and Overweight rating on Microsoft, and a $910 price target and Overweight rating on Alphabet. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Intel (INTC), along with hard disk drive maker Western Digital (WDC) and Arista Networks (ANET), which supplies cloud networking solutions, should all benefit from the tremendous growth in demand for cloud platforms, Wilson believes. He kept Overweight ratings on all three of the latter stocks. Conversely, Wilson identifies EMC (EMC), HP Enterprise (HPE) and NetApp (NTAP) as "cloud share donors" and keeps Sector Weight ratings on their shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Amazon fell 1% to $525.80, Microsoft was flat near $52 per share and Alphabet Class A shares dropped 1.8% to $736.15.

09:13 EDTQCOMQualcomm, Deutsche Telekom say LAA technologies to enhance mobile broadband
Qualcomm (QCOM), through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, and Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) announced that, through the aggregation of licensed and unlicensed spectrum bands, recent testing demonstrated LTE Licensed-Assisted Access' ability to extend coverage and increase network capacity, while delivering seamless mobility, for an enhanced end user experience. The over-the-air trial was completed on November 20, 2015, in Nuremberg, Germany after a three-week period of extensive measurement campaigns. The team measured and demonstrated LAA's extended coverage and increased network capacity in utilizing unlicensed spectrum compared to Wi-Fi, as well as smooth and opportunistic aggregation of unlicensed spectrum during drive tests which also included seamless inter-eNB handovers. The fair coexistence between LAA and Wi-Fi in unlicensed 5 GHz bands was also demonstrated under different radio interference conditions and for a varied number of interfering nodes, the companies announced yesterday.
