Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali downgraded AOL (AOL) two notches to Sell from Buy after Verizon (VZ) agreed to acquire the company for $50 per share.

07:38 EDTYHOOJefferies puts Google atop list of potential Yelp buyers
Jefferies laid out potential buyers for Yelp (YELP) after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company hired bankers to explore a sale. A Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Yelp (YELP) combination makes the most sense, the firm believes. It points out Google unsuccessfully tried to buy Yelp for $550M in 2009. Other potential buyers include Facebook (FB), Priceline (PCLN), GrubHub (GRUB) and Yahoo (YHOO), the firm notes. Jefferies views Yelp as a highly valuable asset and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $79 price target. Deutsche Bank today pegged the chances of a Yelp buyout at 60% and estimates a takeout price between $59 and $85 per share. The stock closed yesterday up $8.79 to $47.01 following the Journal's report.
