13:55 EDTGOOG, GOOGLAnalysts say Yelp sale more likely than not
There is a 60% chance that Yelp (YELP) will be acquired for $59-$85 per share, Deutsche Bank wrote in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, research firm Jefferies contended that Google (GOOG) is the company that is most likely to buy Yelp. WHAT'S NEW: There is a 60% chance that Yelp will be acquired for $59-$85 per share, Deutsche analyst Lloyd Walmsley wrote in a note to investors earlier today. If the company is not acquired, the stock will fall 32% from current levels, the analyst predicted. Given its status as a winner in the local Internet sector, its huge user base and its global presence, Yelp should draw a great deal of interest, the analyst believes. Since its user reviews and community are difficult to replicate, the company should receive a premium from an acquirer, added Walmsley, who raised his price target to $56 from $51 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. Google is the most logical acquirer of Yelp, according to Jefferies analyst Brian Pitz, who noted that it had previously tried to buy the company in 2009. Google has been unable to obtain the local reviews that draw consumers to small and medium businesses, according to Pitz. Traditional search engine marketing through Google is too difficult for these businesses, according to the analyst. The biggest hurdle to a takeover of Yelp by Google is the companies' "rocky historic relationship," he believes. The analyst kept a $79 price target and Buy rating on Yelp. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Yelp could be sold for more than $3.5B, Piper Jaffray said it thought there was a greater than 50% chance of the company being acquired. The firm said the most logical buyers of Yelp are Google, Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL), since all three would benefit from further traction in local ads and would gain technological synergies from acquiring Yelp. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Yelp advanced 6.5% to $50.

07:38 EDTGOOG, GOOGL, FBJefferies 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.

06:22 EDTFBCitigroup sees internet stocks underperforming this summer
Citigroup analyst Mark May says that even with the recent share pullbacks, the broader internet index has still meaningfully outperformed broader indices year-to-date. The group is nearing peak valuations, which could lead to underperformance through the summer, May tells investors today in a research note. He recommends avoiding shares of Twitter (TWTR), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Zillow Group (Z), as the companies are going through business transitions. The analyst believes Amazon.com (AMZN), eBay (EBAY), Yelp (YELP), Netflix (NFLX), GrubHub (GRUB) and Facebook (FB) have company specific factors that should enable them to outperform the internet group over the near term.
06:12 EDTGOOGGoogle integrates food ordering into search results for some restaurants
Google (GOOG) says on Google+, "Whether you’re craving deep dish pizza or pad thai, starting today you can order food from some of your favorite restaurants directly from Google search results. When you search for a nearby restaurant on your phone, you’ll see an option to 'Place an order' in the search results. Just tap that, choose the delivery service and you’ll be taken to their website to complete the order.Initially, you’ll be able to order via six providers in the U.S. -- Seamless, Grubhub (GRUB), Eat24, Delivery.com, BeyondMenu and MyPizza.com -- but we’ll be looking to add more in the future."

05:25 EDTAAPLEricsson files suits against Apple in Germany, UK, Netherlands
Ericsson (ERIC) has filed suits against Apple (AAPL) in Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Ericsson had offered to enter into arbitration with Apple to reach a mutually beneficial global licensing agreement for its standard-essential patents, but that offer has now expired. The proceedings in the three countries were recently initiated and refer to the 2G and 4G/LTE standards, as well as other technology that is not standardized, but is related to, for instance, the design of semiconductor components and non-cellular wireless communications.
