13:16 EDTEBAYAngie's List retreats after Amazon reportedly launches local services site
Shares of Angie's List (ANGI) are sinking after The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Amazon.com (AMZN) had launched a website that will connect consumers to local service providers. Angie's List connects users to local contractors and publishes consumers' reviews of contractors. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon.com launched its website featuring information about local contractors in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, The Journal reported, citing an unnamed source who was briefed on the company's plan. Called Amazon Local Services, the website is part of the e-commerce giant's attempt to compete with traditional stores, The Journal said. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Reuters reported last June that Amazon planned to launch a local services website. Last month, research firm Wunderlich said that Angie's List could be a logical takeover target for Amazon or eBay (EBAY). Wunderlich issued its note after The Financial Times reported that Angie's List had hired bankers to help it explore strategic options, including a possible sale of the company. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian wrote that Amazon's service should be appealing to users searching for local services or shopping for products that have to be serviced. Moreover, service providers should also find value in Amazon's website, Sebastian stated. Service providers will only have to pay Amazon a share of the revenue they receive from customers they obtain from the website, the analyst wrote. Also, Amazon's popularity will enable it to bring meaningful amounts of business to the service providers, Sebastian wrote. He kept a $340 price target and Outperform rating on Amazon shares. Sebastian also noted that the market is increasingly competitive, with Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the other public companies in the space, and he said he expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Angie's List fell 4% to $6 and Amazon slid 1% to $332.50.

08:37 EDTEBAYeBay increasingly threatened by Alibaba, says Bernstein
After conducting research in China, Bernstein believes that Alibaba's (BABA) international expansion poses an increasing competitive threat to eBay (EBAY) Marketplaces. The firm says that 25% of eBay's gross merchandise volume is generated outside of the U.S., and it believes a significant amount of that comes from China. Bernstein believes it is possible but not likely that Alibaba will buy eBay Marketplaces after its spin off. The firm keeps a $60 price target and Outperform rating on eBay.
