10:56 EDTAEGRFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.

18:02 EDTRAXWells sees 'shrinking list' of strategic buyers for Rackspace
Wells Fargo sees a "shrinking list" of potential buyers for Rackspace (RAX), with only remaining HP (HPQ) and CenturyLink (CTL) remaining in its opinion. Wells believes Rackspace going private through a leveraged buyout is a possibility, but it thinks such an outcome is a lower probability given the required return assumptions and implied exit multiple. The firm believes the market has correctly assumed a high probability that Rackspace will not undergo a strategic event. However, Wells thinks the potential for a value creating event limits downside in the name. It keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
