06:28 EDTAAPLBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link
05:38 EDTAAPLApple price target raised to $135 from $120 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target for Apple shares to $135 from $120 after the firm's channel checks indicated that supply of the iPhone 6 and 6+ is "gradually improving vs. demand." Munster does not see risk to Apple's December quarter guidance as he believes the company factored supply constraints into its outlook. He thinks most consumers will wait to purchase an iPhone and maintains an Overweight rating on Apple. The stock closed yesterday down 80c to $114.67.

15:53 EDTBBRYSome make case for Yahoo considering BlackBerry acquistion, Re/code says
Sources close to Yahoo (YHOO) said the company has been considering several "big acquisitions," largely aimed at helping its display business, and is eyeing tech-related companies including MediaMath, RadiumOne and Turn, reported Re/code's Kara Swisher. Swisher added that "one of the most far-out" ideas that has been "floated by bankers and other sundry pundits" is that Yahoo should buy BlackBerry (BBRY), and Swisher said that while that may seem unlikely, such a purchase would be "well within the amount" that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has to spend.

15:05 EDTBBRYBlackBerry CEO's forecasting skills under scrutiny, WSJ says
After Morgan Stanley suggested that BlackBerry may miss its revenue target for software sales, the forecasting skills of BlackBerry CEO John Chen may come under scrutiny, says the Wall Street Journal. According to the report, Chen, known as a turnaround expert, has said the smartphone maker will double its software sales to $500M in its next fiscal year. The Morgan Stanley analyst who wrote the report, James Faucette, said in the note, “We are skeptical that BlackBerry will be able to achieve that level of success, particularly with a new product platform, new pricing and with a still very damaged brand,” added the Wall Street Journal.

12:18 EDTBBRYBlackBerry sinks after Morgan Stanley cuts to Underweight
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) are sinking after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock to Underweight, saying that the market had become too optimistic about the outlook for the company's software and messaging platform. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry's valuation indicates that the market expects the company's software revenue and messaging revenue to increase by $250M and $100M, respectively, in fiscal 2016, Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette wrote in a note to investors before the market opened today. These expectations are consistent with the targets set by the device maker's CEO, John Chen, Faucette stated. But the outlook "seems excessive," as they imply that BlackBerry will retain all of its enterprise subscribers, and convince them to pay the company three times more money than now, the analyst stated. BlackBerry will not "gain relevancy in the enterprise mobile management software market and will continue to lose enterprise subscribers," Faucette believes. He downgraded the stock to Underweight from Equal Weight and set a $7 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In September, BlackBerry reported that it had issued 3.4M licenses for its BES10 mobile device management system during its September quarter representing a nearly threefold increase over the previous quarter. The company stated that BlackBerry Messenger had 91M users, up from 85M users the previous quarter. In a note to investors on November 14, JPMorgan raised its price target on the stock to $13 from $10. The company's product announcements on November 13 increased the chances that its software strategy will work, according to the firm. JPMorgan added, however, that BlackBerry still had a long road back to health, and kept a Neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, BlackBerry slid 5% to $10.20.
