12:42 EDTBBRYBlackBerry rises after Classic launch, BGC upgrade
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) are rising after the company unveiled its new BlackBerry Classic smartphone and research firm BGC Financial upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. WHAT'S NEW: Blackberry Classic features a browser that is three times faster than BlackBerry's Bold 9900 device, along with 60% more screen space and 50% more battery life, the company said. The device's QWERTY keyboard enables fast typing by eliminating pressure points and providing carefully calibrated feedback, the company stated. BlackBerry Classic features a new operating system that includes the company's first digital assistant and gives users the ability to access content from the smartphone when they are on other devices. ANALYST UPGRADE: BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis upgraded BlackBerry ahead of the company's third quarter results, due to be reported on Friday. BlackBerry is in the early stages of turning itself around, but the company has increased its credibility with investors, partly by reducing its costs, focusing on its core strengths, and launching strategic partnerships, Gillis believes. Meanwhile, the company's Passport phone, a device launched by the company in September that targets business users, has been well-received by that group, Gillis said. The Passport should increase the company's profit margins and may help its Q3 results beat expectations, Gillis stated. Given BlackBerry's relatively low valuation of $5B, any success in the market could significantly boost its share price, added the analyst, who raised his price target on the shares to $12.50 from $11. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, BlackBerry rose 3.7% to $9.86.

12:43 EDTBBRYBlackBerry short squeeze possible after launch, earnings, Goldman says
Shares of BlackBerrry (BBRY) could undergo a short squeeze this week, driven by the launch of the company's new BlackBerry Classic smartphone and the company's earnings conference call, Goldman Sachs wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: The launch of the Classic on Wednesday, along with BlackBerry's earnings conference call on Friday, could generate a short squeeze in BlackBerry's stock, Goldman analyst Simona Jankowski wrote. BlackBerry's Q3 earnings per share should be "largely in-line" with the consensus outlook, as higher hardware revenues should be more than offset by a decline in legacy service revenues, the analyst stated. However, the company's EPS for its quarter ended in February should beat expectations, driven by the launch of the Classic, Jankowski forecast. Still, she kept a Neutral rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to Jankowski, the short interest in BlackBerry shares has risen to 21%. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, BlackBerry fell 1.7% to $9.67. The stock is off its low for the day of $9.40. BlackBerry shares have dropped about 12% over the last three months.

10:20 EDTGOOGYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.

BofA/Merrill is also cautious on online advertising growth given increased regulatory risk in the EU, potential Facebook (FB) competition, share loss from social growth, and a strong Apple (AAPL) product cycle. Price target lowered to $580 from $600.
