Speculation over a merger deal, as has been the recent case with Staples (SPLS) and peer Office Depot (ODP), tends to attract larger players that could gain from a transaction of their own with the rumored candidate, so it would not be unusual if Amazon.com (AMZN) or Wal-Mart (WMT) were now to look at Staples as a takeover candidate, according to Forbes contributor Gene Marcial.

06:16 EDTAMZNAmazon unveils 'Make an Offer' for customers to negotiate lower prices
Amazon.com has announced the "Make an Offer" experience that allows customers to negotiate even lower prices on thousands of items. Expanding on Amazonís traditional fixed price model, the new pricing feature allows customers to offer to buy items at even lower prices. If agreed upon, customers can then purchase the items at a savings from the listed price. To start, more than 150,000 items from sellers on Amazon are enabled with the "Make an Offer" experience across Sports and Entertainment Collectibles, Collectible Coins and Fine Art. The new feature will expand to hundreds of thousands of items from sellers in 2015. The "Make an Offer" feature is not an auction format. All negotiations are 1:1 and private between individual customers and sellers. A seller is able to accept a customerís offer at any time. The intention is to lower prices, and a customer negotiating with a seller will never pay more than the listed price.

13:52 EDTEBAYeBay advances slightly in down tape after Stifel upgrades shares
Shares of eBay (EBAY) are rising slightly in a down market after research firm Stifel upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. WHAT'S NEW: The risk/reward ratio on eBay appears to be favorable, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt wrote in a note to investors today. In the most likely scenario for the company, the shares could increase as high as about $65 from their current level of around $55, but are unlikely to drop much below $50, Devitt believes. In a possible bullish scenario, the shares could go up to $75, the analyst stated. The spin off of eBay's PayPal business, expected to occur within nine months, should be a significant catalyst for the stock, while the gross merchandise volume generated by the company's marketplaces business should accelerate in the second half of next year, wrote Devitt. Marketplaces comparisons become easier starting in the second half of the year, the analyst explained. Additionally, eBay will begin to emphasize that the percentage of e-commerce transactions processed by PayPal is increasing, Devitt stated. Meanwhile, eBay's valuation is "compelling," and the upcoming spin-off reminds Devitt of the separation of Expedia (EXPE) and TripAdvisor (TRIP), which proved to be a positive catalyst, he wrote. Devitt set a $65 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, eBay gained 17c, or 0.3%, to $54.97.
