08:30 EDTAMZNInternap downgraded on earnings miss, negative outlook at Oppenheimer
As noted earlier, Oppenheimer downgraded Internap (INAP) to Perform from Outperform. The firm downgraded the stock after the company significantly lowered its guidance. Oppenheimer says that Internap is not benefiting from strong demand for its prices, while Amazoin (AMZN) is poised to reduce its cloud prices significantly next month, hurting Internap in the process. The firm thinks that if Internap sells the company it will probably obtain less than $10 per share, making the stock's risk/reward unattractive at current levels.

20:04 EDTAMZNFacebook virtual reality initiative picks up speed with $99 Samsung device
Thursday's Oculus Connect 2 event saw numerous announcements from Facebook (FB) virtual reality subsidiary Oculus VR, including content deals with major media players as well as a $99 VR headset developed in conjunction with Samsung (SSNLF). CONTENT OFFERINGS: The virtual reality firm will be partnering with Fox (FOX, FOXA) and Lionsgate (LGF) to bring more than 100 films to the Oculus Store at launch. Additionally, Netflix (NFLX), Amazon's (AMZN), TiVo (TIVO), and Hulu -- the joint venture of Disney (DIS), Fox, and Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) NBCUniversal -- will be launching apps for the company's virtual reality products, bringing web TV and streaming content to early adopters of the new technology. MAINSTREAM DEVICE: Samsung joined with Oculus to reveal a new $99 "Gear VR" headset on Thursday. Standing in contrast to Oculus' own pricier devices, the Samsung headset will rely on the company's Galaxy line of smartphones to power its virtual reality experiences. Note that a major point of contention regarding the "blockbuster" potential -- or lack thereof -- of VR technology is whether consumers will be willing to pay upwards of $399 for the Oculus gadgets. Samsung's Gear VR tends more towards what Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has called "medium immersion" devices, potentially allaying investor concern over adoption rates with its more attractive point of entry. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares closed higher by 0.5% and continued to rise in after-hours trading, up another 0.2%.
19:52 EDTUAAthletic footwear stocks higher after Nike's earnings report
Athletic footwear makers Skechers USA (SKX) and adidas (ADDYY), sports apparel maker Under Armour (UA), and shoe retailers Foot Locker (FL) and Finish Line (FINL) were all higher in after-hours trading after Nike (NKE) reported better-than-expected first quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: After the bell, Nike reported Q1 earnings per share and revenue of $1.34 and $8.4B, respectively, versus analyst expectations of $1.19 and $8.22B. The company added that it saw mid-single digit revenue growth in both the second quarter and for fiscal year 2016, as well as Q2 gross margins expanding by 25 bps and FY16 gross margins expanding by 50 bps. PRICE ACTION: Nike rose about 8% in after-hours trading, while Skechers USA gained just over 2%, adidas rose fractionally, Under Armour was higher by 2%, Foot Locker gained 1.5%, and Finish Line was up almost 6%.

12:11 EDTBIDUMicrosoft partnership a modest positive for Baidu, says Summit Research
Summit Research analyst Henry Guo said he considers Baidu's (BIDU) newly announced strategic partnership with Microsoft (MSFT) for the Edge browser in Windows 10 as a modest positive, but thinks it is likely only a headline positive in the near term. However, if Baidu were to strike a deal to become the default search engine for Internet Explorer, that would be "huge" for the Chinese company, Guo tells investors in a research note. The analyst has a Buy rating on Baidu shares.
11:21 EDTAMZNJury says Pendrell patents not infringed on by Samsung, Google products
Pendrell announced earlier, that on September 23, a jury in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas found that certain claims of five digital rights management patents asserted by Pendrell (PCO) subsidiary, ContentGuard Holdings, against Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) and Google (GOOG) are valid, but that Samsung products and Google products accused in the lawsuit do not infringe the asserted patents. ContentGuard is assessing the jury's findings and evaluating its options to challenge the verdict. ContentGuard's claims against Samsung and Google are part of a larger lawsuit filed by ContentGuard against several companies that have not paid for a license to use ContentGuard's patented digital rights management solutions, including Apple (AAPL), DirecTV, HTC, Huawei and Motorola Mobility. The jury verdict does not impact ContentGuard's August 2015 settlement and license agreement with (AMZN); nor does ContentGuard believe the jury verdict will impact or delay ContentGuard's upcoming November trial against Apple. Shares of Pendrell are down 35.34% in morning trading.

09:22 EDTFFord exec says company does not use emissions 'defeat devices,' CNBC reports
Ford President of the Americas Joe Hinrichs said, while appearing on CNBC's Squawk Box, that Ford does not use "defeat devices and we clearly understand what it means from an integrity standpoint to make sure our vehicles perform on the road like they do in the lab." Hinrichs' comments come after Volkswagen (VLKAY) was accused by the EPA of installing a device in its diesel vehicles to mask their true emissions and after a German report said that a discrepancy with on-road emissions performance was found with an SUV made by BMW (BAMXY).

08:51 EDTAMZNCiti cuts Twitter estimates below consensus, drops target to $30
Citi analyst Mark May says his analysis indicates the consensus estimates for Twitter (TWTR) may be too high as they assume "meaningful increases" in monetization which he believes may prove difficult to realize. May cut his 2015, 2016 and 2017 earnings per share estimates for Twitter to 30c, 34c and 58c, respectively, well below the consensus estimates of 34c, 63c, and $1.03. He also cut his 2016 revenue estimate to 3% below the consensus. It will be difficult for the stock to achieve sustained multiple expansion until user growth accelerates and/or revenue growth stabilizes, May tells investors in a research note. He moved the stock to Citi's "High Risk" designation given Twitter's recent user trends and his belief that his estimates are unlikely to move up in the near-term. He keeps a Neutral rating on the name. May's top picks among U.S. Internet stocks remain Facebook (FB), (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY).

06:59 EDTAMZNFacebook and Google more 'Yelp-like' than ever, says Northland
Northland analyst Darren Aftahi says Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and (AMZN) have recently added new features that focus on improved local search as well as tools enabling easier business-consumer communication. Facebook and Google are now more "Yelp-like" than ever, Aftahi tells investors in a research note. And while Apple's (AAPL) new "swipe right" feature could drive a near-term surge in Yelp (YELP) app downloads, it may translate into lower engagement on the Yelp app over longer term, the analyst argues. He remains cautious on Yelp's growth prospects and cut his price target for the stock to $17.75 from $21.50. Shares of the local business review site closed yesterday down 25c to $23.10. Aftahi has an Underperform rating on the stock, his firm's equivalent of a sell.
