07:05 EDTBBYBest Buy CEO says strategy resonating with customers
Hubert Joly, Best Buy president and CEO, said, "In the Domestic business, against a backdrop where the NPD-reported consumer electronics categories, which represent approximately 65% of our revenue, were down 5.3%7, our comparable sales, excluding the impact of installment billing, declined only 0.7% as we continued to take advantage of strong product cycles in large screen televisions and iconic mobile phones and continued growth in the major appliance category. Throughout the quarter, our strategy of delivering ĎAdvice, Service and Convenience at Competitive Pricesí continued to resonate with our customers. While merchandising, marketing and operational execution were the tactical drivers of our better-than-expected first quarter financial results, strategically, we believe the cumulative impact of the progress we have made to improve our multi-channel customer experience is what has allowed us to consistently outperform the market. We have made real progress and it is showing up in our results."

17:36 EDTEBAYTwitter announces full launch of objective-based ad service
In a company blog post, Twitter (TWTR) stated, "Last year, we launched a... way for advertisers to create and optimize their ad campaigns, and only pay for the actions that are aligned with their marketing objectives. After seeing strong results in beta, weíre excited to offer objective-based campaigns, reports and pricing to all advertisers globally, starting today." Based on the beta test of the service, Twitter claims that eBay (EBAY) was able to drive a 59% quarter-over-quarter decrease in average paid cost per link click, while Tableau (DATA) reduced its cost per link click by over 40% quarter-over-quarter. Twitter went on to say, "When creating a new campaign, you can select from one of six objectives -- and our customized workflow will help you choose the best ad format. For example, if you want to drive traffic to your brandís website, you can select a website clicks or conversions campaign... Youíll only be charged when a user clicks on a link to your website -- all other engagements, like a favorite or a retweet, are free. Youíll never pay for actions that arenít relevant to your goal."

08:05 EDTTGTTarget incurred breach-related expenses of $3M in Q1
Target incurred breach-related expenses of $3M in Q1, compared with $18M of net pre-tax expense last year. Since 4Q13, Target has incurred net expense related to the data breach of $166M, reflecting $256M of gross expense, partially offset by the recognition of a $90M insurance receivable. As of April 12, Target Canada completed its inventory liquidation efforts and closed the last of its 133 Canadian retail stores. A court-approved real estate sales process is underway and expected to be complete by the end of June, Target said. Consistent with expectations, after-tax losses from discontinued operations were $16M in Q1, compared with $153M last year. Certain assets and liabilities of Targetís discontinued operations are based on estimates. "The company believes it is reasonably possible that future adjustments to these amounts could be material to its results of operations in future periods. Any such adjustments would be recorded in discontinued operations," Target stated.
