12:13 EDTYHOOYahoo upgraded as BGC sees higher chances for tax efficient monetization
Research firm BGC Partners upgraded its rating on Yahoo (YHOO) to Buy from Hold, saying that the chances of the company monetizing its assets in a more tax efficient manner have increased now that Alibaba (BABA) has come public. Among the possible scenarios, Yahoo may be acquired by Alibaba, the firm added. WHAT'S NEW: Yahoo's chances of paying a relatively low tax rate on the sale of its stakes in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, a Japanese Internet company, have risen, BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis stated. Yahoo could owe up to $15B of taxes on its sale of the assets, the analyst estimated. If Yahoo pays full tax liability, its stakes would be worth $43.5B. If it pays no taxes, the assets would be worth $58.5B, he estimated. Gillis set his price target on Yahoo at $50, representing the midpoint of the two scenarios, he stated. Among various scenarios that could play out, Alibaba could choose to buy Yahoo and subsequently unload Yahoo's core business and the American company's stake in Yahoo Japan, the analyst said. Yahoo shareholders could receive cash and shares of Alibaba as part of such a deal, Gillis stated. If Yahoo is not acquired by Alibaba, the American company should combine with AOL (AOL), as recently proposed by activist investor Starboard Value, Gillis contended. Merging with AOL could accelerate Yahoo's revenue growth by over 50% and increase its EBITDA by over 35%, Gillis estimated. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yahoo fell 1% to $39.18.
