10:05 EDTFB, AAPL, AMZN, GOOG, EBAYAnalyst makes case for Google buying eBay
Google (GOOG) could address two of its weaknesses by buying eBay (EBAY), research firm Robert W. Baird wrote in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Investors are talking about the possibility of eBay spinning off its PayPal unit, but the company could be better off selling its core business and its PayPal unit to Google, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes. Google could pay $57 per share for eBay, representing a 50% premium over the e-commerce company's closing price on March 14, Sebastian estimated. Buying eBay would enable Google to bolster its payments and e-commerce offerings, which are considered its Achilles heel, the analyst contended. Moreover, the deal would allow Google and eBay to compete much more effectively with Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB), according to the analyst. From eBay's perspective, selling itself to Google could be more attractive than spinning off PayPal, as eBay could have trouble coping without its payments unit, Sebastian wrote. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, eBay rose 1% to $57.35, while Google climbed 1.1% to $1,185.

06:13 EDTEBAYISS, Glass Lewis advise Intel investors to vote 'no' on eBay CEO, WSJ reports
ISS and Glass, Lewis & Co, two influential proxy advisory firms, are recommended Intel (INTC) investors vote against the reelection of eBay (EBAY) CEO John Donahoe to the company's board, The Wall Street Journal reports. Citing what it characterized as a poor attendance record, Glass Lewis commented "We view this as a failure by this director to fulfill a fundamental responsibility to represent shareholders at such meetings," while ISS said Donahoe "lacked a valid excuse" for attending less than 75% of the meetings held by the Intel board and committees he serves on in 2014. Intel's annual shareholders meeting is scheduled for May 21. Reference Link
