13:16 EDTAMZNAngie's List retreats after Amazon reportedly launches local services site
Shares of Angie's List (ANGI) are sinking after The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Amazon.com (AMZN) had launched a website that will connect consumers to local service providers. Angie's List connects users to local contractors and publishes consumers' reviews of contractors. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon.com launched its website featuring information about local contractors in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, The Journal reported, citing an unnamed source who was briefed on the company's plan. Called Amazon Local Services, the website is part of the e-commerce giant's attempt to compete with traditional stores, The Journal said. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Reuters reported last June that Amazon planned to launch a local services website. Last month, research firm Wunderlich said that Angie's List could be a logical takeover target for Amazon or eBay (EBAY). Wunderlich issued its note after The Financial Times reported that Angie's List had hired bankers to help it explore strategic options, including a possible sale of the company. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian wrote that Amazon's service should be appealing to users searching for local services or shopping for products that have to be serviced. Moreover, service providers should also find value in Amazon's website, Sebastian stated. Service providers will only have to pay Amazon a share of the revenue they receive from customers they obtain from the website, the analyst wrote. Also, Amazon's popularity will enable it to bring meaningful amounts of business to the service providers, Sebastian wrote. He kept a $340 price target and Outperform rating on Amazon shares. Sebastian also noted that the market is increasingly competitive, with Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the other public companies in the space, and he said he expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Angie's List fell 4% to $6 and Amazon slid 1% to $332.50.
12:22 EDTAMZNAmazon uniquely positioned in home services market, says RW Baird
After the Wall Street Journal this morning highlighted the recent roll-out of Amazon (AMZN) Local Services in select U.S. cities, RW Baird analyst Colin Sebastian says the tech giant is "uniquely positioned" in the $400B home services market given its position in e-commerce and ability to geo-target traffic to local service professionals. Sebastian notes the market is increasingly competitive, with Angie's List (ANGI), Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the public companies in the space. He also expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. Sebastian keeps an Outperform rating on Amazon, point out Baird's initial e-commerce checks suggest a solid start to holiday shopping.

11:10 EDTAMZNWorldwide tablet growth expected to slow to 7.2% in 2014, IDC says
The worldwide tablet market is expected to see a massive deceleration in 2014 with year-over-year growth slowing to 7.2%, down from 52.5% in 2013, according to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC). At the core of this slowdown is the expectation that 2014 will represent the first full year of decline in Apple iPad shipments. Both the iPad and the overall market slowdown do not come as a surprise as device lifecycles for tablets have continued to lengthen, increasingly resembling those of PCs more than smartphones. "The tablet market continues to be impacted by a few major trends happening in relevant markets," said Ryan Reith, Program Director with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "In the early stages of the tablet market, device lifecycles were expected to resemble those of smartphones, with replacement occurring every 2-3 years. What has played out instead is that many tablet owners are holding onto their devices for more than 3 years and in some instances more than 4 years. We believe the two major drivers for longer than expected tablet lifecycles are legacy software support for older products, especially within iOS, and the increased use of smartphones for a variety of computing tasks." Publicly traded companies in the space include Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS). Reference Link
10:25 EDTNFLXNetflix drops after downbeat notes from Stifel, Citi
Shares of Netflix (NFLX) are sinking after two research firms issued cautious notes on the company. WHAT'S NEW: Netflix was downgraded to Hold from Buy by Scott Devitt, an analyst at Stifel. The reaction to Netflix's Q3 results indicate that investors are still focused on the company's domestic subscriber growth, the analyst stated. Netflix's penetration in the U.S. will continue to increase, but at a slower pace than in previous years, Devitt predicted. Moreover, the company's U.S. business may have started to slow before its international growth can compensate, the analyst warned. As a result, Netflix's subscriber growth may not beat investors' expectations for a period of time, Devitt stated. However, Netflix's longer term outlook remains compelling and the firm said it would become more constructive on shares in the low-$300 range. Meanwhile, Citigroup analyst Mark May wrote that Google data suggests that Netflix's trends have not improved in Q4 compared with Q3. Moreover, it is still unclear if Netflix's domestic subscriber growth has entered a downward trend, May believes. Also unclear is whether the company's results in its new foreign markets have been disappointing and whether it still has pricing power, May wrote. The analyst believes that the stock can rise significantly if the answers to these questions are resolved in Netflix's favor. However, he added that the uncertainties may not be resolved during the current quarter. May kept a Neutral rating on the stock with a $364 price target. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix dropped 3% to $345.52.

The European Union said the tax deal struck by Starbucks (SBUX) in the Netherlands amounts to illegal state aid, reports the Wall Street Journal. European Commission regulators said it reached a preliminary view that the tax deal violated guidelines produced by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. It said the tax deal "tolerates questionable adjustments which allow Starbucks Manufacturing BV to lower the resulting corporate income tax basis in the Netherlands." The EU is also investigating tax arrangements of Apple (AAPL) in Ireland and Amazon (AMZN) and Fiat S.p.A. (FIATY) in Luxembourg. Reference Link
