11:47 EDTAMZNAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.

Citing what it characterized as a poor attendance record, Glass Lewis commented "We view this as a failure by this director to fulfill a fundamental responsibility to represent shareholders at such meetings," while ISS said Donahoe "lacked a valid excuse" for attending less than 75% of the meetings held by the Intel board and committees he serves on in 2014. Intel's annual shareholders meeting is scheduled for May 21. Reference Link
