10:40 EDTGRPNStifel warns Twitter may go way of tech busts, cuts to Sell
Twitter (TWTR) is giving up nearly all of yesterday's gains after Fortune and The Wall Street Journal poured cold water on a report that private equity firm Silver Lake might be considering making a strategic investment in the company. Additionally weighing on the stock are a Business Insider report claiming that the number of tweets has declined by more than 50% in the last 18 months and research firm Stifel downgrading the stock to Sell. WHAT'S NEW: Yesterday morning, tech website The Information reported that venture capitalist Marc Andreessen and private equity firm Silver Lake have considered making a deal involving Twitter. However, Silver Lake isn't looking to make a deal with Twitter, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing an unnamed source. The Journal's article echoes a report yesterday afternoon by Fortune, which also quoted an unnamed source as saying that Silver Lake isn't interested in buying Twitter. Also, according to Business Insider, the number of daily tweets on Twitter has plummeted by more than 50% since August 2014. The report based its estimate on a sampling of data from the website's application programming interface. Last month, there were 303M tweets per day on average, down from the peak of an average of 661M per day in August 2014, when the World Cup was occurring, the website stated. Moreover, according to the data, Twitter has about 130M active users, versus the company's estimate of up to 320M monthly active users. STIFEL SAY SELL: Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Twitter to Sell form Hold, saying that it has "never fully developed into a sustainable public company." Yahoo (YHOO) says that it has 1B monthly active users, but the market valuation of Yahoo's core business is "much lower" than that of Twitter, which has a significantly smaller user base, Devitt stated. Additionally, Internet companies Groupon (GRPN) and Zynga (ZNGA) became well-known and obtained tens of millions of users, only to see their stocks plummet, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Twitter's product has not changed significantly since the company hired a new CEO three months ago and it will have difficulty meeting financial expectations over the short-term and longer term, given the size of its user base, said Devitt, who has a $14 price target for the shares. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Twitter fell 6.3% to $16.78. The stock had gained 6.55% yesterday on the heels of Jessica Lessin's report in The Information.

January marked the auto industry's 25th consecutive month of year over year revenue expansion.

Publicly traded companies in the space include Daimler AG (DDAIF), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY).

GE Oil & Gas announced a new Memorandum of Understanding that will lead to the investment of $600M over the next five years in Italy.

The investment in significant research, development and technological innovation in the country reaffirms GE Oil & Gas' commitment to the Italian market, and reinforces its cooperation with universities, SMEs and the regional economy where it operates. Tuscany is the home to Oil & Gas' Turbomachinery Solutions division and is also present in Lombardy, Calabria and Apulia. Another Memorandum of Understanding has been signed in the last weeks between Avio Aero - a GE Aviation business - and the Italian Minister of Economic Development, consisting of EUR200M over the next four years and involving Piedmont, Apulia and Campania, the geographical areas in which Avio Aero employs about 4,000 people. The MoU announced today will see GE Oil & Gas operations invest $600M over the next five years establishing a centre of global excellence in Tuscany for the oil and gas sector that will involve 500 highly qualified people coming from GE, universities, research labs, and small and medium-sized enterprises. The project aims at increasing Italian production by 50% and increase company revenue by $1.7B in five years. The program, named Galileo, supports the development of gas turbines and centrifugal compressors with a 5-65MW power range and innovative digital technologies covering their entire life cycle with aim of optimising the performance and operative life of the products.
